You're the leader of a global jihad and spend all your time fleeing from cave to cave and plotting only the vilest of terror attacks (gotta stay focused!). But extremist Middle Eastern editors are burning up your satellite phone with urgent demands for a book on how one "dispenses money, logistical support and training to radical groups in over 50 countries." Decentralized management is so hot right now! What's a would-be martyr to do? If you're Osama bin Laden, the answer of course is to hire a ghostwriter. Per Pakistan's Geo TV (via Times of India):
“He is writing the book with the assistance of a young man with a Middle Eastern background who will later translate the text into English,” sources said.
The book is about "atrocities being meted out to the Muslim world in contemporary times by the Western world." And also about "the so-called struggle of his outfit."
In the U.S., making one's "struggle" the cornerstone of a revolutionary treatise would be major faux pas. But apparently it's expected to play well with bin Laden's target readership.
Assuming the book is completed, it should launch the predictable controversies stateside over whether any stores should/should not stock it. Only slightly less predictable: Terrible writing and instant internet availability will render those debates largely moot.
