Osama Bin Laden said President Barack Obama is "powerless" to win the war in Afghanistan, in an audio tape released Sunday by al Qaeda's media wing.
The comment came from al Qaeda's top terrorist just days after the eighth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, D.C.
Bin Laden blamed U.S. support for Israel as a reason for al Qaeda's attacks on 9/11 and he accused the Obama administration of following the same strategies as former President Bush.

Bin Laden said his address was "to remind you of the causes" of Sept. 11, chiefly "your support to your Israeli allies who occupy our land of Palestine."
"If you end the war, so to it," bin Laden said. "But if it is otherwise, all we will do is continue the war of attrition against you on all possible axes."
Bin Laden is believed to be hiding in the mountainous region along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
