Leaflet Message From Pentagon:

Fri Oct 19, 2001 1:28 am

From cnn.com:

>>Here's a complete text of one broadcast: "Attention
Taliban! You are condemned. Did you know that?
The instant the terrorists you support took over our
planes, you sentenced yourselves to death. The
Armed Forces of the United States are here to seek
justice for our dead. Highly trained soldiers are
coming to shut down once and for all Osama bin
Laden's ring of terrorism, and the Taliban that
supports them and their actions.

"Our forces are armed with state of the art military
equipment. What are you using, obsolete and
ineffective weaponry? Our helicopters will rain fire
down upon your camps before you detect them on
your radar. Our bombs are so accurate we can
drop them right through your windows. Our
infantry is trained for any climate and terrain on
earth. United States soldiers fire with superior marksmanship and are armed withsuperior weapons.

"You have only one choice ... Surrender now and we will give you a second
chance. We will let you live. If you surrender no harm will come to you. When you decide to surrender, approach United States forces with your hands in the air. Sling your weapon across your back muzzle towards the ground. Remove your and expel any rounds. Doing this is your only chance of survival."<<

Pretty standard military propaganda, I would think. The message should have had more emphasis on the wretched situation in Afghanistan, and that Bin Laden and his Taliban patrons are to blame. And that how Bin Laden will neither defend, nor save them.
