Americas Pentagon releases 'bin Laden tapes'
english.aljazeera.net ^ | 5-7-11

Posted on 05/07/2011 11:17:09 AM PDT by Justaham

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."

Compound videos

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.

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.

looking for clues that this is a fake bin laden First of all...he wore that ring on a different finger. I have seen more than one instance of it



Does the change in finger signal something?

Has he gained weight??

Or is it a fake Osama

“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

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.

Being that you're a chick, you've probably never heard of 'Just For Men' beard coloring. Hides the grey. Washes out eventually.

I bet that stuff is America's biggest exported cosmetic items to the part of the world where men still wear beards.

I like the way you are thinking. There is no way U.S. was not aware of this intel for a long time. Ubama has talked trash vs. Pakistan ever since he “won.”

I’m thinking the previous admin may have known OBL was there, but thought twice about raiding into a country that possesses nuclear weapons. Duh. They may have considered how to get OBL out of there alive.

But this administration doesn’t think about such things. Because of the Won’s ego, he had to crow about the operation, which would normally be kept a secret, being CIA and SEALS, doncha know.

He has an animus vs. Pak that we haven’t thoroughly explored.

Anyway, his blabbering puts our troops in Afghan in more danger also. But points need to be made for Ubama’s campaign, which is the overriding concern. Foreign policy failures be damned.

My bet is since he moved to the compound from his mountain hide-outs, there have been some wealthy Saudis getting him the best medical treatments (and obviously some Just For Men). But, if you look at his shoulders and eyes and ignore the obvious fake dye on his beard, he does seem to be older and more worn.

Its exactly why I don’t care about a photo. It means absolutely nothing and is a distraction from getting the truth of what has been going on.

I don’t like it if Bush allowed Bin Laden to stay alive but I do understand why if he did.

Bull. If you think that all a dead body would do is satisfy the ghouls out there...you are out of touch with reality. There is so much tin foil used on a regular basis here on FR when it comes to this guy...we are probably keeping the prices artificially inflated.

We (the USA) could have laid his body out for all to see...given it to the Swiss for independent ID...and I guarantee there would be a thread on FR about how it was a rouse.

“I can’t help but wonder if Bin Laden weren’t being held there for our tactical advantage..”

I think it is becoming very clear that we have known about Osama’s whereabouts for some time. People whined about Bush not capturing him. Well, if people are really paying attention, they will see that is not exactly accurate.

My guess is that they have been able to monitor a lot of activity out of the compound for several years and a lot of Jihadis have been connected to each other in ways we don’t know about.

I hope Obama’s ego didn’t alter the game plan here. I will assume that it hasn’t and if I were a terrorist leader, I would be very careful as to my movements. We did send a drone attack after the American/Yemeni freak very recently. We shall see.

"I can’t help but wonder if Bin Laden weren’t being held there..."

It would explain the lack of security, and him being "completely confused".

On another note. Fridays Factor had Col. David Hunt and Jennifer Griffin, they gave differing accounts.

Col. David Hunt "....it took about 30 seconds from the time they entered the building until they killed bin Laden."
Jennifer Griffin then stated her sources confirm bin Laden killed at the 20 minute mark.

If ANY of the Obama spin is true I suppose we’ll have to make a Kinetic Humanitarian battleship replete with rainbows for the new homosexual groups flocking and preening to the recruiting lines. The battleship will be called iAK PRES____ENT( I Am the KING* hear him whine*). It’ll shoot a mix of K-Y and patchouli oil from its fifteen inch guns and eh use your’maginatchun

They just had to ask Osama some questions first. Mostly about power tools. "Do you know what this one does, Osama? You son of a -BBBZZZZZZZZZTRZRZRRZZ!!"

GWB never let UBL stay alive. All such talk is just hyperbole nonsense. If GWB ever had actionable Intel that put UBL at a given location the Dogs of War would have been released on him. Of that I am assured.

It was the leadership and constant pressure pushed by GWB for 7 1/2 years that led to us finally getting that actionable Intel on UBL. For that, the man should be thanked.
