Osama bin Laden Video

Recommended Posts

Guest LAW

On September 6, 2007, Osama bin Laden's image was posted at a banner advertisement on an Islamic militant Web site where Al-Sahab posts messages. In the image, bin Laden's beard had been dyed, a popular practice among Arab leaders. Al-Sahab said that bin Laden will release a new video ahead of the 6th anniversary of the September 11 attacks which will be the first new images in 3 years.

 

Previously al Qaeda preferred to deliver its videos via a dead-drop method using couriers. However, the method of delivery was changed in January 2005 after a Damadola airstrike U.S. air raid on an al Qaeda meeting near Damadola, Pakistan. The current method of delivery, which appears to be handled by As Sahab, is an internet delivery of video or audio materials

I have not seen the new Osama Bin Evil video yet. But, I will look around. Did anyone read about Neal Krawetz "Case Study: Dr. Z." image forensics presentation? It really shows the mastery of image media manipulation. Start on page 58. You might wonder whether any of these terrorist videos are what they appear to be.

I think it is a much older video that was kept for later propoganda purposes.

Here are excerpts from the latest video.

 

Praise to Allah and from his law is retaliation in kind - an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and the killer is killed...

 

I am talking to you about important matters that concern you [Americans], so give me your ears. I start these matters by talking about the war between us and you and some of its repercussions on us and on you.

 

As a prelude, I say that the USA has the biggest economic power and has the most powerful and most modern military arsenal and spends on this war and its army more than the world spends on its armies.

 

And it is the major country that influences the policies of the world as if the unjust veto right is exclusive to it.

 

In spite of all that, with the help of God, 19 young men managed to take its compass off-course. The talk about the mujahideen has even become an indivisible part of your leader's talk. The effects and implications of this are no secret...

 

You permitted Bush to complete his first term, and stranger still, chose him for a second term, which gave him a clear mandate from you - with your full knowledge and consent - to continue to murder our people in Iraq and Afghanistan...

 

Bush is talking about his co-operation with [iraqi Prime Minister Nouri] Maliki and his government to spread democracy, but he is, in fact, co-operating with the leaders of one sect against another, in the belief that he will settle the war in his favour quickly.

 

Thus what is called civil war has taken place and the situation has become worse because of him and slipped out of his control.

 

He has become like someone who is cultivating in the sea, reaping nothing but failure...

 

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.

 

The second solution is from your side. I invite you to embrace Islam.

I still have not found the video but, here is Al Jazeera's transcription.

 

"I am sending you important messages so lend me your ears. I will begin with the war opposing us, and some of its repercussions for both of us.

 

"At first, I say that despite the fact America possesses the greatest economic power and the most powerful and modern military arsenal, despite spending on this war much more than what the entire world spends on its armies, and despite it being the superpower influencing world policies - as if it has a monopoly on the unjust veto right - despite all of this, and with God's help, nineteen young men were able to change the direction of its compass.

 

"Any speech about the "mujahidin" is an integral part of the speech of your leader. The impact and significance of this are not hidden."

 

* * * * *

"Bush mentions his co-operation with Maliki and his government to spread freedom in Iraq, but in fact, he is co-operating with the leaders of one sect against another sect, believing that this will lead him to a quick victory.

 

"Thus, he spread the so-called civil war, and things worsened on his hands and got out of his control. He became like someone who ploughs the sea and gains nothing but failure.

 

"These are some facts pertaining to the freedom he says he is spreading. Bush's insistence not to give the United Nations an expanded mandate in Iraq is an implicit admission of his loss and defeat over there.

"Among the most important items in Bush speeches since September 11 is his statement that the Americans have no options but to continue the war. Such statements are in fact a repetition of the words of the neo-conservatives, such as [Dick] Cheney, [Donald] Rumsfeld and Richard Perle, who said earlier that the Americans have no option but to continue war, or to face a holocaust."

 

* * * * *

"However, we are a people that do not tolerate oppression, we reject humiliation and disgrace, and we take revenge on the people of tyranny and aggression.

 

"The blood of the Muslims will not be spilled in vain, and the morrow is nigh for he who awaits."

 

* * * * *

"The genocide of peoples and their holocaust was perpetrated on your hands. All what is left from the Red Indians is a few specimens. A short while ago, the Japanese observed the 62nd anniversary of the annihilation of Nagasaki and Hiroshima with your nuclear bombs."

 

* * * * *

 

"Yet in spite of that, you [American citizens] allowed Bush to complete his first term. And what is even stranger is that you still chose him for a second term. This was a clear and explicit mandate you gave him, with your full knowledge and consent, to continue killing our people in Iraq and Afghanistan. Then you claim to be innocent.

 

 

"This innocence of yours is similar to my innocence of the blood of your sons on the 11th, were I to claim such a thing.

 

 

"But it is impossible to humour many of you in the arrogance and indifference you show for the lives of humans outside America, or to humour your leaders in lying. The whole world knows that they have the lion's share of that."

 

 

* * * * *

"In answer to the question about the reasons of the Democrats' failure to stop the war, I say that these are the same reasons of the failure of former President [John ] Kennedy to stop the Vietnam war.

 

"Those who possess real power and influence are the ones who have the biggest capital. And since the Democratic regime allows the major corporations to support candidates, be they presidential or congressional, then there should be no need for astonishment at the Democrats' failure to stop the war. You are the ones who say 'money talks'."

 

* * * * *

"I also want to bring to your attention that among the greatest reasons for the collapse of the Soviet Union was their being afflicted with their leader [Leonid] Brezhnev, who was dominated by pride and arrogance and refused to recognise the facts on the ground.

 

"Since the first year of Afghanistan's invasion, reports indicated that the Russians were losing the war. However, he refused to admit this so that it would not be added as a defeat in his personal history - even though refusing to acknowledge defeat not only fails to change the truth for the wise ones, but also exacerbates the problem and increases the losses.

 

"How similar is your situation today to their situation about two decades ago? The mistakes of Brezhnev are being committed by Bush. When asked about the date of withdrawing his troops from Iraq, he said that the withdrawal will not take place during his term, but during the term of his successor. The significance of these words is not hidden."

My sources state all of the video web sites have been shut down. Hopefully we will be able to track down Osama bin Laden and other remnants of Al Qaeda hiding in Pakistani territory one day and neutralise them.

All print, television, and internet media is passing into the hands of our government, and is controlled, censored, and packaged as such.

The democrats got on the Republicans for not being able to get Osama Bin Laden, but the democrat can't find Osama Bin Laden.

 

Proof in point; http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/pakistan/7711099/Pakistani-officials-know-where-Osama-bin-Laden-hiding-Hillary-Clinton.html

 

I want our country "U.S." to have the best Intel agencies in the world.

 

No bull, I would LOVE to have a staff of twenty people with in the U.S. government whose only mission is to find dear ole osama.

 

I know it's just wishful thinking, but still that would be REAL FUN. The work would be brutal as hell though. Well!!! It's just a dream.

 

But then again ten years ago I am sure Barack Obama would have NEVER thought that he would become President of the United States. :)

I frankly find it insulting that hillary would even make such a statement and telegraph to the rest of the world that our intel agencies have limits.

This is one place that should NEVER be partisan.
