Bin Laden: Still Dead After all these Years

It hardly comes as a surprise… Osama plans to release “a new video recording … on or before next week’s sixth anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the United States,” reports the Voice of America, the propaganda unit established by the Office of War Information. “No photos or video of Bin Laden have been seen since late 2004, and the last audio message attributed to the fugitive terrorist leader was heard more than a year ago.” Of course, this makes perfect sense, as Osama died in late 2001, and as for the audio messages, these are routinely dismissed as fakes, although this is rarely mentioned by the corporate media.

“Two private monitoring organizations—SITE intelligence Group and IntelCenter—say an announcement, in the name of al-Qaida’s media-production arm, al-Sahab, seen on an Islamist website this week indicates the new al-Qaida video is about to be released,” VOA continues. As Neal Krawetz, a researcher and computer security consultant, noted last month, a recent al-Zawahiri video contained a few interesting anomalies, i.e., the IntelCenter and al-Qaeda logos were added to the tape at the same time. Krawetz, however, has since recanted, probably after a midnight visit by MIB. Even so, the customer should be wary of IntelCenter’s offerings, especially when the latest video supposedly contains an image of Osama, at least ten years old. VOA characterizes this image as “a recent portrait of bin Laden,” leading your humble blogger to believe Osama uses Grecian Formula from his Afghan cave hideaway.

“The United States is offering a $25-million reward for bin Laden, but he has eluded capture since the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington,” the propaganda unit concludes. “President Bush says the U.S. will find Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice, no matter how long it takes.”

Go figure. It wasn’t that long ago Bush told the Fox News neocon and Weekly Standard editor Fred Barnes capturing bin Laden is “not a top priority use of American resources” and “bin Laden doesn’t fit with the administration’s strategy for combating terrorism.”

Of course, this makes sense, as capturing a dead guy is “not a top priority,” and besides, terrorism—that is to say state-sponsored and false flag terrorism—has worked like a charm.

Don’t expect any self-respecting neocon to walk away from that winner.
