Another Bin Laden tape to be released

Posted by: ST on September 10, 2007 at 10:46 am

The Associated Press reports:

Al-Qaida said Monday that it will release a new video of Osama bin Laden presenting the last testament of one of the Sept. 11 suicide hijackers, marking the sixth anniversary of the attacks.

The announcement from the terror group’s media arm came only days after bin Laden appeared in his first video in three years, giving an address to the American people, lecturing them to abandon capitalism and democracy and convert to Islam.

The announcement came in a banner advertisement posted on an Islamic militant Web site where al-Qaida often releases messages and was signed by Al-Sahab, the media arm of bin Laden’s al-Qaida terror network.

“Coming soon, God willing, the testament of the attacks on New York and Washington, Abu Musab Waleed al-Shehri, presented by Sheik Osama bin Laden, God preserve him,” the banner read. It showed an image of bin Laden wearing the same black beard and clothes as in the most recent video.

Oh, and did you hear the latest rumor on the tape of OBL that was released last week? There’s a possibility that it’s a fake. Rick Moran has the details.

      M-m-m-m-max Bin Laden, take 2.

      The guy is wearing the same clothes from his last video. Of course it’s a fake. Noone wears the same clothes for over 3 years.

      If it’s a fake, it’s a parody; if it’s real, it’s self-parody. And that’s just the point: sooner* or later,+ everybody in the public eye turns into self-parody.
