3. I remember seeing this before, and I think it is important. It is a very
effective way to get the message you want. Just mistranslate key sections ever so slightly.

This video is actually the same one a lot of people believe showed a fake Osama-- the "fat" Osama he is often called. True enough, in a couple of shots from the video he looks odd-- but if you really watch the video, as I did, you can clearly see it is him-- particularly when he comes in at the beginning. I still remember feeling my heart jump as I saw that it was him in the video-- becuase so many people said it wasn't him. I actually felt very misled by certain people I had been reading.

But really, a MUCH easier way of getting the desired story is to just mistranslate his words rather than fake osama himself.

I guess there is also a lesson here for how the attacks themselves were done, and how the US press handled them.
