It wasn't my opinion, but Juan Cole's. My opinion was only that Bin Laden isn't talking about US "states" but nation-states.

Of course, if all the red states start getting attacked and not the blue states, then I stand to be corrected.

Observation: Two of three states which were actually attacked on 9/11 voted for Kerry. Even in Virgina, home of many working at the Pentagon, the vote was fairly close.

NY: Kerry 3,950,309 58%
PA: Kerry 2,868,674 51%
VA: Bush 1,673,080 54%
DC: Kerry 183,876 90% (not a surprise)

More than any state, NY has reason to fear yet voted Kerry. Even Manhattan voted overwhelmingly for change.

Bronx - 92%
Brooklyn - 74%
Queens - 71%
Manhattan - 82%

Open question to all, why? It seems these voters, who arguably have as big or bigger stake in the "war on terror" than anyone, wanted change in leadership.
