From Greg Miller’s story:

Bin Laden’s blood will be “a curse that chases the Americans and their agents, and goes after them inside and outside their countries,” the statement said, according to a translation by the SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks militant postings online.

“Soon — with help from Allah — their happiness will turn into sorrow, and their blood will be mixed with their tears. We will fulfill the oath of Sheikh Osama, may Allah have mercy on him: America and those who live in America will never enjoy security until our people in Palestine enjoy it.”

I guess they didn’t need to see a photograph. Here’s the full statement.
