Breaking: New bin Laden tape on the way?

posted at 9:20 am on September 10, 2007 by Bryan

That’s what the AP is reporting:

Al-Qaida announces it will release a new video of Osama bin Laden presenting the last testament of one of the Sept. 11 suicide hijackers.

Whose testament will it be? We’ve already seen Mohammad Atta and Ziad Jarrah laughing through their martyrdom videos, which were made about a year before 9-11. Wail al-Shehri and Hamza al-Ghamdi have also appeared in last-will videos.

One more question: Did the “revolting geek of mass proportions” write the script for the new one, too?

Update (AP): According to the Blotter, it’ll be Waleed al-Shehri, brother of Wail and a muscle hijacker on Flight 11. I wrote a long post last September about the supply of hijacker videos Al Qaeda is sitting on; read it all as they’ll be releasing these things for years to come. In fact, AQ released a video a year after 9/11 called “Nineteen Martyrs” that includes still frames from the various testaments they have. Here’s a screencap; Waleed al-Shehri is in the upper right-hand corner, appropriately adorned with a lavalier microphone.

And here’s a clip from “Nineteen Martyrs” so you can see it all in context. That’s Osama’s voice narrating, FYI.

It’ll be interesting to see if this new vid was shot contemporaneously with the one that came out a few days ago. I suspect it’ll be older.

Update (bp): While we’re waiting to hear from Osama, let’s hear from some of his allies. MoveOn.org is out with a new ad depicting Gen. Petraeus as “General Betray Us.” Har de har. Byron York dissects and destructs.

Update (AP): Nope, looks I’m wrong. The Blotter now says the new Osama intro was recorded in the same location as the other new tape.

Update (bp): A DKos diarist gives us a good exit question on the eve of 9-11: Who was more evil, Osama or Reagan?

Osama’s dead. These tapes are just someone at the CIA having fun embarrassing the left.

Stormy70 on September 10, 2007 at 9:23 AM

Yay. New old video of fake Osama edited into mush.

Do we get more pastey mouthed Adam Gadan video too? We haven’t seen him/it in awhile.

Whose testament will it be?

It’s from the democrats. It leaves the last vestiges of patriotism in the democrat party to the ash heap of history.

M-m-m-m-more M-m-m-m-ax bin Laden? Oh, goodie.

steveegg on September 10, 2007 at 9:33 AM

Wait, so is OBL expecting us to believe that 9-11 was not an inside job?
INCONCEIVABLE!

TheSitRep on September 10, 2007 at 9:43 AM

UBL says it was 19 Islamic hijackers responsible for 9/11.

Rosie O’Donnell and the Troofers say it was BushHitler and the Halliburtons who did it all.

If you are a diehard leftist with BDS, Who to believe????

In the past, murderers were hung and then their bodies were buried in an unmarked grave. The Greeks used to erase the name of assassins from the records so their name would die with them.

It’s not possible to hang these Islamic bastards, but it is possible to avoid pictures of them smiling in their bedsheets and giving some sort of insane testimony of how they are killing innocent men, women and children to get to virgin land.

There’s plenty more of these twisted followers of Mohammad out there trying to kill us, so let’s focus on taking care of them rather than looking backwards at this filth.

My favorite Rosie “fact”: “I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel.”

Who can argue with that, right?

Lefies with BDS are so…pathetic.

I say the OBL tapes support our point of view. Bring em on!
When he reduces himself to talking about the mortgage crisis in the U.S. he is doing us a favor.
I heard a commenter on TV remark that if OBL is concerned about the mortgage crisis then we have him. “He’ll have to come out of his cave to refinance and we’ll nail him!”
The new tapes expose him for the nut that he is and the old tapes serve to pull the scab off a wound that still needs to weep.
The more publicity these tapes get IMO the better.

Babs on September 10, 2007 at 9:58 AM

More material for Olbermann and the Troofers.

Is Al-Q femme fatale Adam Gadahn on the new tape?

JammieWearingFool on September 10, 2007 at 10:01 AM

Here’s al-Shehri’s picture.

MoveOn: “General Betray Us”

That is absolutely despicable. I think the whole “they support the troops” meme on the left can finally be thrown out the window. These people are un-American and yes, I question their patriotism. They’re the lowest of the low.

Like equating Reagan with Osama.

MoveOn: “General Betray Us”

Wow, it sure took them long enough to come up with that one. He’s only been heavily featured in the news for what, six months now?

AP, I believe that footage of Atta and Jarrah was of them whooping it up prior to the filming of their martydom videos. To my knowledge, the martydom videos proper of the four pilots (Atta, Shehhi, Hanjour and Jarrah) have not been released.

Thus, to date, with the addition of the forthcoming Waleed al-Shehri video we have a total of six martydom videos from 9/11 hijackers that have been released. The others being Abdul al-Omari, Ahmed al-Ghamdi, Said al-Ghamdi, Hamza al-Ghamdi and Wail al-Shehri. Note that all six were muscle hijackers.

A further note: All of the muscle martydom videos were made in spring, 2001 in Afghanistan (al Matar complex is my guess) with KSM behind the camera. Since Atta, Shehhi, Hanjour and Jarrah were already in the US, theirs were obviously shot prior to the muscle hijackers.

Well you see, there’s a recent study out that found out liberals are better at distinguishing “B” and “P” when it flashes on their screen, so it was only a matter of time.

BKennedy on September 10, 2007 at 10:38 AM

Did you ever notice that you never see Karl Rove and bin Laden in the same room at the same time. . .

hmmm. . . I’m just sayin’. . .

2klbofun on September 10, 2007 at 10:46 AM

For the record and my edification, dropped the second r in martyrdom above. Heh! I like the sound of martydom better, anyway.

LOL.

I can’t wait to see video footage of the MoveOns protesting Petreus with their dogs and ponies, and I certainly hope that Zombie Times is covering this folly.

Instead of the pitchforks of the French Revolution they will be carrying pooper scoopers.

That video of the smoke rising from the mountain looks like footage from the Pakistan nuke test.

MrC_5150 on September 10, 2007 at 10:56 AM

Another one? Time to watch more South Park.

(Great image for a dartboard or whack-a-mole game.)

Bin Laden can dye himself black for all I care.

His heart already is.

If he ain’t dead, he will be.

May Hell have enough room for his oozing putrescence.
