CIA Chief Says Al-Qaida is Plotting Attack on U.S.
Osama bin Laden: The Newest Fake
Commentary by DeepJournal
The last Bin Laden video turned out to be five years old and used for the third time. The new Bin Laden video shows that Bin Laden must have dyed the hairs of his beard because his beard is not grey anymore but black. Read the observations about this from What Really Happened below. In related news computer magazine Wired showed that the logo from As-Sahab (the alledged media branch of Al Qaida) and the logo from IntelCenter (the US anti-terror watchdog) were added at the same time to an Al Qaeda video.

A new Osama bin Laden videotape surfaced Friday, and Michael Hayden gave a rare speech in New York, saying al-Qaida has regained strength and its leadership continues to plot a "high-impact" attack on the United States.

The CIA director also defended the government's program of detaining and interrogating prisoners, saying most of the information in a July intelligence report on the terrorist threat to the United States came from that program.

Bin Laden Offers No New Threat in Latest Video

In a rambling statement days before the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, Osama bin Laden said the Bush administration and the Iraqi government have failed to spread freedom in Iraq and, instead, have plunged the country into civil war.

A U.S. intelligence official said bin Laden made no overt threats in the 25-30 minute videotape and did not mention any forthcoming attacks.

The official said the CIA and other agencies have the tape and are doing technical and content analyses. The video contains the first images of bin Laden in three years. Experts noted that he appears to have dyed his beard, which had been gray.

According to a transcript obtained by ABC News, bin Laden also talked about the growing debate in the U.S. about the war and drew attention to the fact that Democrats have not been able to bring the troops home.

The terrorist leader said there are only two ways to stop the war in Iraq. "There are two solutions to stopping it. One is from our side, and it is to escalate the fighting and killing against you. This is our duty, and our brothers are carrying it out," bin Laden said, according to the transcript.

"The second solution is from your side," he said, lapsing into a diatribe against corporate greed and ending in an invitation to convert to Islam.

"I invite you to embrace Islam," he said. "It will also achieve your desire to stop the war as a consequence, because as soon as the warmongering owners of the major corporations realize that you have lost confidence in your democratic system and have begun to look for an alternative, and this alternative is Islam, they will run after you to please you and achieve what you want to steer you away from Islam."

Bin Laden was critical of the Bush administration and compares the administration's actions to those made by leaders of the old Soviet Union, who did not acknowledge losses in Afghanistan decades ago.

The videotape contains a reference to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, which is an indication that it was recorded after the French elections in May.

He also mentioned a book by CIA veteran Michael Scheuer, saying, "If you want to understand what's going on and if you would like to get to know some of the reasons for your losing the war against us, then read the book of Michael Scheuer."

    Osama bin Laden: The Newest Fake

    The latest "Osama", seen in a clip from the 9/11/07 video

    Real Osamas

    In this closeup of the latest "Osama", seen in a clip from the 9/11/07 video, not the obvious line at the top of the beard under the mouth. Notice also that while the real Osama has a straight beard, this "Osama's" beard is very curly, thin enough to show the shape of his face, and more than anything looks like 'crepe' hair used by theatrical makeup artists.
    Dying one's beard is strictly forbidden under Islamic law. Any devout (Sunni) Muslim would be aghast at an image of a purported spokesperson with a dyed beard. It's okay to tint it with henna (only), but in that case gray hair appears orange. Pakistan is full of guys sporting huge orange beards, but there is no market whatsoever for Grecian formula, at least not among the Wahhabis.

    Other "Al Qaeda" videos are sharp and clear, but the new "Osama" tape is soft and indictinct

    In this morph between the real Osama and the new one, the mouth and ears have been aligned, which shows that the mouth and brows are clearly not the same.
  • Close (closer than the last phony) but no cigar. Note the shape of the cheeks and the width of the nose.

  • His arms and hands are in view and appear uninjured, whereas it was reported that the real Osama's left arm was severely injured at Tora Bora.

    Why is Syria under attack? - Part 1
    On the surface it’s straightforward: the U.S. wants to liberate Syria from a brutal dictator who is attacking his own people with poison gas. But beneath the surface there is something very different going on.
