Groups: al-Qaida Leader Plans New Video
Edited on Thu Sep-06-07 04:50 PM by Newsjock
Source: Associated Press

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

The Intelcenter, which also monitors Islamic Web sites, said the video is expected within the next 72 hours, before the sixth anniversary of the World Trade Center attack. The last bin Laden video was in October 2004, shortly before the U.S. presidential elections.

Edited on Thu Sep-06-07 04:34 PM by Lone_Star_Dem
September 11, 2007 is looking to be a busy day for bush and his war agenda.

Funny, isn't it, how Osama bin forgotten manages to rear his head each time bush needs to rally support.

8. Hmmm...let me guess. We suck? We're infidels? Oh hell, the suspense is killing me...
I'm not saying he REPEATS himself, but...

He needs to do something like hold up a copy of today's New York Times so we know the tape isn't archive footage of a long-dead OBL thrown together by some Adobe Premiere-loving radical Islam zealot (or Karl Rove). Maybe he can talk about how he was one of the bidders on eBay for the Colbert cast or something. Or better yet he could issue a separate fatwa on the whole Larry Craig thing. Come on, you bastard, throw some bonus tracks on that "Greatest Hits" CD...

They'll just regurgitate some clip they have of him, that was recorded 5-10 years ago.

When he actually cites a Current & Identifiable Event in one of his videos, then I'll be convinced he's still alive and recording in the present tense.

20. Next 72 hours Bin Laden plans video for 9/11
Source: breitbart




CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Terror mastermind Osama bin Laden plans a new video addressing the American people regarding the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, terror monitoring groups said Thursday.
SITE Intelligence Group said an Internet announcement of the plan included a photo of the al-Qaida leader from the upcoming videohis beard, which in previous messages had been streaked with gray, was entirely dark.

Intelcenter, which is based in Alexandria, Va., and also monitors Islamic Web sites, said the video was expected within the next 72 hours, or by Sunday. That would come before the sixth anniversary next Tuesday of the World Trade Center attack. The last bin Laden video was in October 2004, shortly before the U.S. presidential elections.

Rita Katz, director of the Washington-based SITE Institute, said bin Laden's beard appeared to have been dyed, which she said is a popular practice in the Middle East.

"I think it works for their benefit that he looks young, he looks healthy," Katz said of the new image.

23. I wouldn't be surprised if the video is years old, and is being released by the secret government
Though I believe the administration would love to start another war, they don't have the resources or support

As for the issues occurring between Israel and Syria, neither side want to push this to a war, or it would have already happened

30. Who the hell is "SITE", and why is Osama getting wall to wall promo's on every network?
And why can't they find him. Horsehockey - this whole thing is concocted. His family has been in business with the Bush family for 30 years. Osama's brother was with Georges dad the day of 9-11. The last time he showed his face he said "vote for Kerry". It's all part of the great game of war in which families like the Bush's and Bin Ladens become wealthy beyond your comprehension.

33. OMG! The news release "accidentally" left out very important parts! Read here!
Terror mastermind, George W. Bush, says Osama bin Laden plans a new video addressing the American people regarding the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, terror monitoring groups said Thursday.

SITE Intelligence Group said an Internet announcement of the plan by the WH and all other US agencies, including, but not limited to the FBI and the CIA, 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.

A WH official who asked to remain anonymous stated, "The president and the vice-president both concur that an updated and sharper look would be just the ticket in presenting OBL. All WH cabinet members, and senior officials at the pentagon believe a "new and improved" OBL will capture millions of the American audience once again."

37. Much of the reaction here is sad
Just like what I see on CNN, much of the discussion in this thread is, if I may respectfully say it, so US-introspective as to be diversionary, or so juvenile as to be meaningless.

Do you notice that Wolf B. over at CNN never tires of wondering, every time an AQ tape is released if its the real Osama on the tape, and wonders if the real Osama really alive, when will the real CIA confirm the authenticity of the tape, etc. etc.

After a zillion experts and panels on this, every single time in the past, it turns out that, yes, upon investigation, CNN has learned that it really is that Osama guy. But by then everytone's agreed that no attention should be paid to whatever is said anyway, since giving him a hearing would give him a victory.

Back to Britney.

The dogs bark, the carnival moves on...

What I don't get is why anyone who knows anything about AQ is supposed to think in the first place that if Osama were actually killed, that AQ would hide that fact? Are we supposed to think AQ is as squeemish about death as we are? Is their concept of martyrdom beyond understanding?

Hah! A deceased Osama would be Martyr Number One, more inspirational in death that ever in life, forever. And the dogs would bark, the carnival would move on...

I'm thinking that America's liturgical rituals governing how it deals with Osama tapes isn't terribly coherent at this point, or working particularly well. Just like its way of combatting terrorism isn't working particularly well.

38. Osama might be dead, but even if he is deceased pretending
he's alive is one way for the jihadis to rag on Bush. The old "Nyah, nyah, you can't catch me!" routine. It's a good AQ recruitment ploy too,
"The man the infidels can't kill!"

or acting in similar interests so that it appears as if they are working together.

Right...on...time. Almost as if Bushler called his buddy Bin Laden and said, "Could you whip me up a tape real quick? And try to praise the Democrats so the idiots won;t notice you're my pal and always have been."

49. Bin Laden 'to issue 9/11 video'
Source: BBC

Osama Bin Laden is said to be preparing to release a video message to the American people to coincide with the sixth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
The announcement was made on an Islamist website, where al-Qaeda's media arm frequently posts messages.

US homeland security officials could not confirm the existence of a tape, and said there was "no credible information of an imminent threat".

(...)

Bin Laden has not been seen in a video since October 2004, when he threatened new attacks against the US on the eve of the presidential election.

Synergistic Gestalt-Based Propaganda and Lie Co-ordination.

Why wouldn't both Bush Employees and Allies, Petreaus and Bin Laden, present on the same day.

Again I say, things must be so very far gone for the Bushies to be so bold in their propganda.

Also, where the fuck are the Bushies getting their Bin Laden doubles these days? Who IS this guy? He sure isn't Osama Bin Laden unless someone to a sledgehammer to his face.
LOOK AT HIS RIGHT EYE (our left)!

Here's a younger real Bin Laden picture with black beard and no eye deformity, which has never been seen until now.

Even Senator Craig has one!

Seriously, trot out OBL just in time for 9/11.

Fake beard? Colored beard? GMA didn't seem to mention the issue about coloring the beard (I was to busy railing at the tee vee to hear). Even I have heard of "Just for Men."

Question for whomever reads this post....

Am I the only one who does cringe and get scared at the sight of OBL? George W. Bush...Osama does not scare me anymore. He is not my bogeyman.

64.  Bin Laden to taunt US again in video marking 9/11
WASHINGTON (AFP) Osama bin Laden plans to emerge from the shadows to taunt the United States again in a video message marking the sixth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, US-based monitoring services and a militant website said.

The video from the world's most-wanted man, first announced late Thursday by US services that monitor militant websites, would be the first such appearance by the Saudi extremist since October 2004, when he threatened new attacks against the United States just days before a US election.

The US government has obtained a copy of the latest video tape said to be from elusive Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden and is analyzing it, a senior US official told AFP Friday.

A US official said bin Laden's Al-Qaeda network was using the media to manipulate and try to terrorize Americans.
