Islamist Website Connected to Al-Qaeda Says New bin Laden Tape is Fake

Islamist website says US tape on bin Laden fake (AFP):

An Islamist website has accused the United States of releasing a fake tape of an ageing Osama bin Laden watching images of himself on television, and posted a video on YouTube it says offers proof.

Shoumoukh al-Islam, the main website that broadcasts Al-Qaeda videos, posted a video comparing an earlier picture of bin Laden and the aired picture.

It said the video was a “response to the tape aired by Arab and foreign media on Osama bin Laden watching himself” on television.

“Caution, caution from America the liar,” read a caption on the almost 10-minute-long video with pictures showing the differences between the ear and eyes of the bin Laden in the early photo and those of the older bin Laden.

The video was posted on YouTube at

US officials have released five videos of bin Laden seized in the raid that killed him, including an extraordinary one in which the Al-Qaeda chief is seen holding a remote and sitting huddled under a blanket, watching images of himself on television in a spare-looking room.

    I don’t find the evidence in the Shoumoukh al-Islam the slightest bit compelling. On the contrary, I find the resemblance between the two pictures to be striking.

    Incidentally, I believe that the Pentagon-released video of Bin Laden watching himself on television can be dated to 24 January 2010 or shortly thereafter. See:

    All videos of Bin Laden are fakes made by the Israeli shill propaganda group SITE.

    Al-Qaeda, literally “the database” is just computer program made by the CIA. It never existed.
