Clumsiness of new "Osama" propaganda: sign of increasing Bush administration desperation

Those pesky Canadians. See the original for links to supporting documents:

Exactly one year ago, in response to a previous bogus "Osama" transmission, I wrote:

"Like previous productions, the tape was conveniently timed to reinforce and invigorate Washington’s expanding war agenda, keep the populations of Western nations fearfully compliant and supportive of the Bush administration’s "war on terrorism", further provoke anti-Western sentiment in the Middle East, and distract from exploding political and economic fault lines all over the world.

We can logically conclude that this work is more of the same."

This latest production may be the clumsiest and most transparent fakery of them all. Today, with the Bush administration cornered and bleeding from scandals, in need of a distraction and cover for an atrocity in Pakistan, more justification for a future conquest of Iran, and facing Peak Oil and Gas-related collapse, it is a fine time for another wag, another attempt at the same old trick. But it is a trick that is losing its power.

One day after the initial broadcast, (not associated with the Al-Jazeera Space Channel TV Network that broadcasted the Bin Laden tape) responded with "Bin Laden tapes: fact or fiction?", a piece that questions the authenticity and too-convenient timing of this latest work, correctly suggesting the possibility of a US intelligence/Bush administration "wag the dog". In "Latest Bin Laden Tape: Another of the NeoCons' 'Greatest Hits'", Steve Watson points out, "even the BBC lays this out in the open with the headline Bin Laden threats may boost Bush:
"One of the main objectives of war propaganda is to ‘fabricate an enemy’. As anti-war sentiment grows and the political legitimacy the Bush Administration falters, doubts regarding the existence of this illusive ‘outside enemy’ must be dispelled.
