The Latest Bin Laden Video Tape A Fraud?


FAKED USAma stories


Bin Ladin muscles into US election race:

Bin Ladin, taunting the man who has vowed to take him "dead or alive" for the past three years, said Bush had failed Americans with his Middle East policies, deceiving the nation and provoking Muslim groups like al-Qaida to strike again.

Osama's Election Editorial

by William Rivers Pitt



Once again, Bush's comments from March of 2002 rise again with the impact of a gut-punch. 'So I don't know where he is,' said Bush of bin Laden at the time. 'Nor -- you know, I just don't spend that much time on him really, to be honest with you. I ... I truly am not that concerned about him.' The fellow who orchestrated the massacre of 3,000 people, the fellow whom Bush said he wasn't concerned about, thanked Bush for giving him the time necessary to complete his wretched act. In the parlance of American youth, Bush got punked by the top terrorist on national television...

Osama's Surprise: Osama bin Laden as Global Shock Jock
by Tom Engelhardt

Looked at realistically Osama bin Laden's intervention in our presidential election was undoubtedly an act of immediate organizational weakness, not strength. Had he had been capable of orchestrating the bringing down of another American tower or its equivalent, he certainly would have done so, but it was no less ingenious for that. His last major intervention, his self-scripted action-adventure film in real time, The Humiliation of America, cost his organization hundreds of thousands of planning dollars and 19 suicidal believers (plus the price of airplane tickets, box-cutters, and mace). Still, those 19 followers and the almost 3,000 dead from the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and United Flight 93, which never made it to Washington thanks to the heroic action of its passengers, was clearly a cheap enough price to pay in his eyes for the notoriety he instantly achieved....



Osama's Endorsement

by John Chuckman

It has been a bad few weeks for Bush with discoveries startling enough to kill, or at least stun, a normal candidate. But there is nothing normal about Bush. He just keeps plunging ahead, grunting and gasping, like one of the undead. . . . Now, suddenly, just days before the election, we have Osama's face again appearing on every front page in the world. Who benefits from Osama's re-appearance?



OBL and Twenty-Year Time Bombs (REVISED 10/31)

by Ahmed Amr

Osama Bin Laden was destined to be a major factor in this election from the moment the first plane struck the World Trade Center. The memories of that assault are deeply etched in the collective American psyche. . . . This is how The Independent (UK) reported Osama bin Laden's intervention in the American elections: “With an aplomb verging on impertinence, the al-Qaida leader has delivered his own election message to the American people, just four days before they choose their next president.” By morning, OBL’s speech was stealing the headlines in every major American paper. Most Americans can’t name the Prime Minister of Canada or the president of Mexico. But they recognize the Al Qaida leader by his initials. JFK, FDR, JFK, LBJ, GWB and OBL are probably the only five people who can readily be identified in a major headline with only three bold letters....

Take the Deal!: On Osama's Offer

by Richard Oxman

The important thing for us all respecting the recently released video by OBL is not whether or not it'll make voters lean toward Bush or Kerry. What it's saying to Muslims is irrelevant. And neither analysis regarding 9/11 speculations to date, nor what visual cues might be uncovered should garner our attention. Ditto for the state of OBL's health, confirmation or the lack of it concerning his modus operandi, and/or who was right or wrong stateside about his whereabouts. The only thing that's crucial is that we take his advice to not place much significance on whether or not Bush or Kerry becomes his Official Nemesis (ON), and get down to the business of ensuring the safety of his people....



Loose Lips Sync Elections

by Leilla Matsui

Osama bin Laden's recent video address to American voters on the eve of the presidential elections will likely have less impact on Bush's chances of re-(s)election than Ashlee Simpson's disastrous appearance on Saturday Night Live. If anything, the latter sends more chills down Republican spines since Ashlee (little sister to Bush supporter Jessica Simpson) seems to be following a career path almost identical to little George's short-lived and disaster prone presidency. In what appears to be a prophetic twist of fate, the parallels between the speech defective former governor of Texas and the vocally challenged Texas teen are as apparent as the telltale bulge on Bush's back during the debates....



Robert Fisk: "Bin Laden's Vote is For George Bush"


Bin Laden Tries to Influence U.S. Election

Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden ditched his usual Islamist rhetoric for calculated political language designed to influence next week's U.S. presidential election, Arab analysts said on Saturday. Bin Laden burst into the U.S. election campaign early on Saturday, issuing his first videotaped message in more than a year to deride President Bush and warn of possible new Sept. 11-style attacks. His sudden appearance thrust security to the top of the U.S. campaign agenda just three days before voters cast ballots on Nov. 2 in a presidential race polls show to be a dead heat. Though the election has focused on national security and the war in Iraq, it was unclear if the tape would help Bush by reminding voters of his fight against terror or help opponent John Kerry by reminding them that bin Laden was still at large.

"He is using political rhetoric to convince American public opinion ... that they must exert influence on the next president to take a different approach in his Middle East policies," said Egyptian Islamist lawyer Montasser al-Zayat.



Former CBSNEWS anchorman Walter Cronkite believes Bush adviser Karl Rove is possibly behind the new Bin Laden tape. Cronkite made the startling comments late Friday during an interview on CNN. Somewhat smiling, Cronkite said he is "inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing." Interviewer Larry King did not ask Cronkite to elaborate on the provocative election eve observation.
