118. Because once he denied it, the cat is out of the bag.
While Bin Laden may be an evil man, he's not the type to 'fuck' with us. If he spent those ridiculous man hours and money planning something so symbolic like this, it wouldn't make any sense for him to deny involvement with it. Him taking credit for it is essential for the symbolism. And everything that has come to light since then has suggested that he didn't have any involvement. Where is the smoking gun that shrub promised? Why doesn't the FBI believe that he had anything to do with 9/11? Do you not think that these are HUGE issues?

Now, might there exist rather cheap and shitty converters that fuck with an image like that. I suppose they might exist, but I certainly haven't even seen cheap ones that do that. But the point is that AQ would have distributed the video in its native PAL because all the media around them would use PAL as well. As for converting for the North American audience, that would have been wholly unnecessary because any North American television studio would have decent conversion hardware. Do you think they were thinking to themselves "Well, we better convert this to NTSC because otherwise Americans are NEVER going to see this. They just won't put the effort forward, so we better do it for them." Of course not. Anyone with a lick of sense knows that if AQ sends us a video, it doesn't matter which damn format it's in, we're going to see it.
