Bin Laden: Moussaoui not linked to 9/11

The AP has the story:
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Osama bin Laden purportedly said in an audio tape Tuesday that Zacarias Moussaoui - the only person convicted in the U.S. for the Sept. 11 attacks - had nothing to do with the operation.

"He had no connection at all with Sept. 11," the speaker, claiming to be bin Laden, said in the tape posted on the Internet.

"I am the one in charge of the 19 brothers and I never assigned brother Zacarias to be with them in that mission," he said, referring to the 19 hijackers.

. . .
Let's see -- a confessed co-conspirator who is still at large says the only suspect charged and convicted had nothing to do with it, and we're supposed to believe him -- why?

Wonder what 9/11 conspiracy theorists make of this latest tape: Osama takes credit for the 9/11 attack (so it was a U.S. government operation?); but he exonerates Moussaoui (so the CIA is putting out this tape -- why?).

UPDATE: Translation of entire text here.
