WASHINGTON - Apparently “The Decision” sits worse with one man than working for the terror leader behind the 9/11 attacks.
The former translator for vile and now-dead Al Qaeda head Osama bin Laden seemingly has little regard for former Cavalier LeBron James.
In a declassified letter to the Washington Times, Muhammad Rahim wrote, “Lebron James is a very bad man. He should apologize to the city of Cleveland.”
Rahim, an Afghan translator who worked for bin Laden, is referring to James’ highly criticized 2010 televised decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat.
Rahim is currently in Guantanamo Bay.
For the record, in May 2011, James did say, "I apologize for the way it happened."
The Post got the letter from Rahim's lawyer, Carlos Warner, who is from Akron, the same hometown as James. According to the paper’s column, Warner said Rahim’s sentiments made about James leaving the Cavs are because of his client’s tribal values, in which loyalty is most important and “betrayals are not tolerated or forgiven.”
Warner also revealed that one of Rahim’s demands in exchange for information is a cat. Rahim told his lawyer that a fellow Gitmo inmate has a cat and he wants one too. The Department of Defense reportedly could not confirm or deny if it gave a cat to an inmate for good behavior in exchange for information.
The lesson to take away from all this: even though Al Qaeda members may hate America, they think LeBron's the bad guy -- and they have a soft spot for kittens.
