The US has released five video clips of Osama bin Laden that it says was taken from the Pakistani compound where the leader of al-Qaeda was reportedly killed last week.
The videos mainly show bin Laden rehearsing taped remarks, but there is also video showing him watching news coverage of himself on TV.
Al Jazeera's Rosiland Jordan, reporting from the Pentagon in Washington DC, said that the video clips were shown to journalists, but the sound was removed from them.
"We did see a video of Osama bin Laden watching video of himself on what appears to be Al Jazeera," she said.
Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist speaking to Al Jazeera from Washington DC, said that it was still difficult to confirm that all these videos do show bin Laden, as some are not clear.
"There are going to be many more questions raised after the release of these videos, because there have been videos and images in the past that were thought to be of bin Laden, but some of those turned out to be fake."
Earlier on Saturday, Al Jazeera obtained new footage of the compound where Osama bin Laden was killed, that showed the interiors of the house where the al-Qaeda leader is thought to have been hiding for up to six years.
Filmed during daylight hours, there is no doubt that this is the house where bin Laden was shot and killed by US forces, Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab said, reporting from the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
"These pictures ... give a sense of just how Osama bin Laden - the world's most wanted fugitive - lived relatively undetected right here in Abbottabad," our correspondent said.
It was not immediately clear how long after the raid that the footage was taken.

I can’t help but wonder if Bin Laden weren’t being held there for our tactical advantage and Obammy double crossed the Pakis to stroke his own ego.
One likely result is the most radical paki faction will gain control and we can add that to a list of Obammy’s failures.
are we not getting pictures of dead Bin Laden because the beard colors dont match up?
I do not believe ANYTHING this administration and/or the state-run media says anymore. **Might** just have a better chance of getting the truth in Russia these days, sorry to say. (sarc)

America’s Pentagon. Does some other country have one, too?
they didn’t release the audio because they are worried about code words in the video.
This is the same media that had lip readers indicating what Prince William was saying during the wedding.
I am sure the terrorists can do the same thing.
I’m betting that he looked like an old, beaten man who needed assistance to do anything.
This is from a supposedly more recent video taken from the "compound":
I hope they are not going to release OBL’s goat porn.

In this undated image taken from video provided by the U.S. Department of Defense, Osama bin Laden is shown in a new video released on Saturday, May 7, 2011
“The Big Lie is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, for a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” “
This is most likely an October surprise that had to be
launched early due to the pressure on Barry to release the
IMHO, of course.
Pentagon Releases Videos of Osama bin Laden
Tin foil or not, Obama could have provided incontrovertible evidence, could have had other countries look at the dead body of Bin Laden and do their own DNA testing, but he didn’t.
Osama in 2011 looks just like Osama in 2007
Was that video debunked or considered real???
