Well of course he's a "dissident"

Little Green Footballs:

In the caption for a photograph of Ayman al-Zawahiri, Agence France Presse enlightens those of us who were so rash as to call Osama Bin Laden a “terrorist.”

When after all, he’s just a “dissident.”


I don't see what the problem is; I think the term "dissident" pefectly describes bin Laden's relationship with the Saudi regime. They pretend to be our friends while funding our enemies, but Osama takes a more honest, direct approach and declares his enmity toward us openly.
