CNN headline:

CIA says terror voice is bin Laden

"Terror voice"? What is a "terror voice"?

The message said attacks against America "are in the planning stages and you will see them in the heart of your land as soon as the planning is complete."

Can we know if the translation is accurate? When bin Laden says "the heart of your land" can we understand him to be using that idiom ("heartland") literally?

If so, [sigh of relief]. Watch out, Iowa.
