On Wednesday the Arab TV channel Al-Jazeera broadcast new Osama bin Laden's statement. It was a surprise for George Bush's administration, Washington Post said referring to the administration's official spokesmen. According to the data of the administration, the statement was recorded in the first or second week of December during the Taliban flight from Kandahar and the US air strikes on the Tora Bora near Jalalabad. The White House refused to give any official comments upon the videotape. The new bin Laden's statement is another example of terrorist propaganda we had seen before, US President's Deputy Press Secretary Scott McClellan told journalists.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
