Osama bin Laden's Former Translator Thinks LeBron James Owes Cleveland an Apology


When letters from Muhammed Rahim, Osama bin Laden's former translator who is summering down in Guantanamo Bay, to his lawyer were declassified, one of the most startling revelations was a single sentence.

"Osama bin Laden is a very bad man."

Just kidding. Rahim didn't write that. Here's what he really wrote.

"Dear Mr. Warner! LeBron James is a very bad man. He should apologize to the city of Cleveland."

No, really. He wrote that. Along with pleadings that he be allowed a cat to keep him company. But the LeBron stuff is slightly more important. Can we finally call it a day folks? When Osama's translator chirps in from his prison cell, that means we've killed the topic, right?
