Breaking: New Bin Laden Tape Coming Soon

I just saw this on Fox News Channel. According to the Site Institute (I'm really frustrated because its site is down right now) reports that a new Bin Laden tape will be coming out soon for the anniversary of 9/11. More here:

Terror mastermind Osama bin Laden plans a new video addressing the American people regarding the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, a terror monitoring group said Thursday.

SITE Intelligence Group said an Internet announcement of the plan included a photo of the al-Qaida leader from the upcoming video--his beard, which in previous messages had been streaked with gray, was entirely dark.

Allahpundit has more, including a photo from the video in which Bin Laden's beard is magically dark when it had been streaked with gray the last time we saw him.

Stop the ACLU says the video will be coming in the next 72 hours.

Herman:

So Osama's coming out with a new video, huh? I hope that it's not as unpleasant as his pre-election 2004 "Kill-off Kerry" video. You know, the one in which he reminded Americans that their commander-in-chief would rather read about pet goats than defend the country. Had he been addressing a country of highly rational citizens, Osama's video would have destroyed Bush, reminding the country yet again that Chimpy was "truly ... not that concerned" about Mr been Forgotten. Instead, the reaction of far too many was "Osama mocks our stooge president because he favors Kerry! I'll show him; I'll vote for Bush!"

And thus Osama ultimately accomplished three things: 1) he remains free to this day, 2) he was able to recruit many more for jihad and martyrdom, and 3) the Americans continue to bring themselves to Iraq where they can be killed off, if not by al-Qaeda itself, then by others.

Rumor has it that kucinich and Scummer are going to present their behinds to UBL to see who will be his Veep. (he's tired of sheep....ya get it ?....They're pillow biters ya numbnutz, now do ya get it ?....Actually, those two will just be concubines for UBL's sheep. I mean, even Usama has standards.)

Gmac:

Ooooooooo.... I'm just quaking with fear.

OBL is a greasy rotted stain under a pile of rocks somewhere in the Tora Bora region and nothing his friends have produced since then have convinced anyone that he's alive (other than Herman and liberals of similar strain) and living in some rat hole on the Pakistan border region.

Until OBL holds up yesterdays newsstand copy of the NYT will I or very many others believe otherwise and as such he's the Islamofachist's boogeyman and the liberals bloody shirt.

Anyone want to guess why this is getting big play right now?
AQ needs a victory...any kind of victory, right now. US forces have routed them recently in Iraq...one wonders where else they are feeling the heat. Asia?

A new UBL tape? AQ is dying (literally) for support and they know the western media will give this tape wide play...particularly if it slams Bush.

Chris G:

Looks like AQ are as skillful as politicians as the Dems. The tape is surely to be used as a counter to the Patreus report before Congress. So you can anticipate the Dems undermining the report from one side, and AQ trying to undermine the report from the other side.

Fortunately for the Dems (unfortunate for the rest of us), the Dems undermining of the Patreus report will get 2 whole news segments by the MSM, and the Osama tape will get a 20 words overiew at the end of the news show "And today Osama Bin Laden released another tape warning the US of future attacks. Bin Laden was allegedly behind 9/11"

Does that mean we can charge the people that produce Grecian Formula with aiding and abetting a terrorist?

Or should we check the location of Edwards and his hairdresser?

Sarcasm aside, I'll believe Osama is alive the day I see a certified unaltered photo of him holding a current newspaper.

Scrapiron:

It has taken six years and hundreds of plastic surgeries but the AQ has came up with a look alike. Anyone checked on Algor-abge. They could make two, maybe three, Osama's out of his fat a**. Or just film Osama Obama and release it, they speak the same language because they're both members of the same radical Islamic sect, and the democrats could care less as long as they hate America.

headzero:

Yea - he looks a lot younger in that picture - been doin palates and dying his hair, getting manicures and so on.

Or could it be that its just an old picture from back when he realy was alive?

Turn down the conspiracy/bullshit meter and look at reality.

The chances are greater that he is dead than alive. He is a more elusive target and harder to find if he is buried somewhere. AQ knowing that we will spend all kinds of money chasing shadows in Afgahnistan leave them free to wage war in Iraq and other places.

Wait for the tape - see if he mentions any current events - or as was said above - hold up a current newspaper. Him mentioning it has to be a full on shot of him talking and not a cutaway so that we can see it come out of his lips so that we know its not old tape with a voice over by someone that sounds like him to make everyone believe that he is still alive.

My bet is that the tape will be vauge when he is talking and it will be someone else bringing up current events - AQ has learned to edit and play the media, and they are going to get a lot of mileage out of this tape, even though it more than likely will not difinitavely prove Osama is still alive.

kyle:

Look at the two photos at Allah's site. First, the beard is not only darker, but shorter in the new pic. As I recall, one does not shorten a beard-the Taliban used to kill people for doing that. Second, look at OBL's right eye in the new pic. Drooping and angled...any thoughts as to whether this is indicative of any medical conditions? (I have no idea--not a doctor, don't play one on tv and didn't stay at a holiday inn express last night) The whole thing smells of photoshopping...

I hear he's with Hsu in hollywood doing a remake of "One Hsu over the cuckoo's nest"

And I'll believe he's alive if Harry and Nancy are in the video with him proclaiming the "war is lost".

I hope that it's not as unpleasant as his pre-election 2004 "Kill-off Kerry" video.

The only reason it was unpleasant for someone like you Herman is it sounded too much like Democrat talking points. It wasn't a kill-off Kerry video, but more like a campaign contribution. You could have put "I'm John Kerry and I approve of this message" at the end and people wouldn't flinch.

No, guys, it is, in fact, Just For Men®.

Rumors have been flying around that bin Laden will replace former Mets star Keith Hernandez as Walt "Clyde the Glide" Frazier's co-ho on the Just For Men® commercials.

Reportedly, a niche market of Upwardly Mobile Old Muslim Radical Imams (or, "UMOMRIs") has been identified. A draft script has Osama saying, "We extremists can't smoke, drink, touch strange women, or wear short pants. But that doesn't mean we can't look maaaahhhrvelous!"

Walt: "Your beard is Da Bomb!"

[They high-five and say in unison]: "RE-spected!"

[In the background, burkha-clad beauties with come-hither eyes are undulating to Fergie's "My humps my humps my humps" as camels watch, seemingly affected with that old ennui].


NOTE: With any luck or justice, we'll have his dyed head on a platter before the Hollywood types get to him, though . . .

It's pretty simple. Bin Laden wants to keep us in Iraq. He knows we're at a turning point so he's going to do whatever he can to turn the debate in Bush's favor. 150,000 troops in Iraq is the best thing that ever happened to Al Qaeda. They help to motivate new recruits for Al Qaeda, and they can't be used to threaten bin Laden in his Pakistan-Afghan stronghold.

Puleeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaase!

Do you honestly think we buy this crap anymore?

The two Arabs in the photos look nothing alike.

Maybe someone should buy "Al-Qaida's media arm" a disposable digital camera...they're like 7.00 at Wal-Mart - and ask them to stop resizing their images down to 90% of the original size.

So Larkin is asserting two things; A) Bin Laden is alive and B) he's in Pakistan/Afghanistan. Both without a shred of evidence. Not to mention; "150,000 troops in Iraq is the best thing that ever happened to Al Qaeda." Sure it is, Larkin. That's why they're being run out of one area of Iraq after another by none other than their "previous" Sunni supporters.

groucho:

I love all the assumptions that he must be dead. Is there a shred of evidence to suggest he's not alive? More righty apologists for the Bush regime's failure to hunt him down. How soon we forget the post-9/11 rhetoric. Wanted: dead or alive! What happened to that one, sheriff? I wonder where the initial leak of this story came from. The Department of Fear-mongering?

"I did everything in my power to try to kill him".....Bill Clinton. I guess this feller failed also huh Groucho

"The Department of Fear-mongering"? Remind me when the last attack on our soil happened since the development of DHS or the Patriot Act. This isn't about "righty or lefty" Groucho. This is about hunting down the mastermind of a group of lunatics that murdered 3000 AMERICANS, but don't let that get in the way of supporting their cause.

There's a lot of speculation that OBL died in December 2001. An Egyptian newspaper reported his death and funeral about 10 days after. Sorry, I don't have a link. Why this manufactured tape?
