Bin Laden Warns Europe To Stop Aiding U.S.
In Audiotape, Al Qaeda Chief Calls On Europeans To Stop Helping America In Afghanistan

CAIRO, Egypt, Nov. 29, 2007

(AP) Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden called on the Europeans to stop helping the United States in the war in Afghanistan, saying America is "ebbing" in excerpts of a new audiotape aired Thursday on Al-Jazeera television.

Bin Laden said he was the "only one responsible" for the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, arguing that it was unjust for the Americans to have invaded Afghanistan.

"The events of Manhattan were retaliation against the American-Israeli alliance's aggression against our people in Palestine and Lebanon, and I am the only one responsible for it. The Afghan people and government knew nothing about it. America knows that," he said.

"Europe went along with it (the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan) because they had no other alternative, only to be a follower," he said.

Osama Bin Laden Had A Pakistani ISI "Handling Officer"

I sent the following letter to the author of this report...

Hello. What does it mean to be Osama Bin Laden's "Handling Officer" for the Pakistani ISI? What is the responsibility of the person that has this particular job? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Jon Gold

His response...

The handling officer of a source in Indian and Pakistani intelligence agencies is the person who looks after the welfare of the source, keeps him motivated and uses him as needed. The source cannot meet anybody else other than his handling officer except the head of the agency. One source--one handling officer is the general rule. This is to prevent the exposure of the operation and maintain its deniability. I understand in the CIA they call him the Running Officer of a source.

Thanks.

MSNBC asks "Was Bin Laden's last video faked?"

Good on MSNBC for asking the question. The article begins:

When al-Qaida’s media arm released its first Osama Bin Laden video in nearly three years, most of the media attention was focused on Bin Laden's beard. It appeared either dyed — or perhaps even pasted on. He was ridiculed and a variety of theories were offered to explain it.

But now, there is a running debate among video analysts about whether al-Qaida faked the video altogether —that rather than being new, the September 7 message may have been something recorded at the same time as his last video in October 2004 (and then released with new audio).

Krawetz makes a lot of sense to me.

Osama Bin Laden Still on the Loose

Personally I believe OBL is dead, but just this past week he released another tape, which has been "authenticated" by US intelligence agencies. As is typical his "message" coincided with a request for 182 billion dollars in additional funding for the war on terror.

It has been over 6 years and according to the official story public enemy #1 has yet to be killed or captured. If you believe the official story this is simply disgraceful and, I would bet, unacceptable to the American public.

We are fighting wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and soon Iran in response to the attacks of 9/11 and to find and kill the 911 mastermind. But this task, despite spending close to a trillion dollars, has failed and this failure is being used by the government perpetuate a policy of endless war and fear.

The reason I bring up this topic is there is a deep seeded, and growing resentment by the average American that OBL the individual is still on the loose and threatening America. Also I think that this aspect of the 911 story is being overlooked and undervalued by the truth movement and is a possible bridge issue to the peace movement.

Latest OBL tape: newsroom computer system sound in background?

Thanks to another post at http://www.911blogger.com/node/12132, I downloaded the latest recording of bin Laden from Al Jazeera's web site at the following address:

http://www.aljazeera.net/Channel/KServices/SupportPages/ShowMedia/showMedia.aspx?fileURL=/mritems/streams/2007/10/22/1_730...

It is a 6 minute, 18 second Windows Media File, with no introduction, featuring someone who sounds like they might be (or might have been) Osama, speaking in Arabic, with a clear edit about half way through, with the two segments likely recorded at different times.

Most interesting is this: at 26 seconds into the audio file (presumably recorded on a tiny cassette recorder in some distant hut in the mountains of Pakistan), the distinct sound of two high pitched double pulses can be heard behind bin Laden's voice. I immediately recognized this as the one-second bulletin triggered by the INEWS newsroom software (a program file entitled "bulletin.wav").

INEWS is a pretty comprehensive newsroom management system, marketed to large news outlets (and presumably Al Jazeera) to centralize and automate their operations, and also features access to multiple wire services.

Sheldon Drobny at HuffPo: 9/11 "pinned" on Bin Laden because he is Disney cartoon villain

This is the third blog from Sheldon Drobny at Huffington Post articulating skepticism over the official 9/11 fairy tale, actually dated September 7 but never posted here at 911blogger:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/sheldon-drobny/bin-laden-and-the-wonderf_b_63476.html

"The 9/11 attack was a well-funded plan that involved money as well as manpower and planning within the U.S. It is my personal belief that they gave credit for 9/11 to Bin Laden the same as cops claiming that they have captured a murderer by pinning it on some already known murderer. It gives the public the belief that there has been some positive response by law enforcement. Bin Laden originally denied that he had anything to do with 9/11. He ultimately took credit for it after we insisted that he was responsible. That was the gift of a lifetime for him."

Earlier, Drobny said he believed the hijackers had inside help. He also recently attacked Bill Maher's opinion on 9/11 as naive.

Bin Laden: we got him!

This shows how easy it is to fake an Osama video.

Recent Bin Laden Tape is a Fake

Researchers,

Re: New Bin Laden Tape an Obvious Fake

You might want to take a look at this blog entry with embedded video of the recently released Bin Laden tape. This item is enough to convince me that the tape is fake and the public is being bamboozled with yet another DoD psyop.

FOX News Reported "Bin Laden Already Dead" Dec 26, 2001

Most of us aren't fooled anymore, realizing that the criminal cabal in Washington drags out their boogeyman with another fake "message" whenever they feel need to instill fear in the citizenry. The recent reports of a new bin Laden message are almost comical at this point, were it not for the overall seriousness of the matter. Six years later, the the PNAC infested US government is still trying to manipulate the masses through fear--and further, to counteract the growing awareness that 9/11 was a day of carefully planned false-flag terrorism they themselves orchestrated.

According to this FOX News article dated December 26, 2001, Osama bin Laden is DEAD. Surprisingly, the article is still online at this link: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,41576,00.html

Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader.

"The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said.

CIA Warns of Attack

This article seems to have gone under the radar due to OBL video...
The warning coincidently was given at the CFR.

Al-Qaeda plotting to strike U.S.: CIA

Al-Qaeda is plotting fresh attacks on the United States aimed at sowing death and destruction on a massive scale, CIA director Michael Hayden warned yesterday, the same day the terrorist group's leader resurfaced in a videotape bragging about altering the course of American history and warning that the only way to end the war in Iraq is for Americans to convert to Islam.

"Our analysts assess with high confidence that al-Qaeda's central leadership is planning high-impact plots against the American homeland," Mr. Hayden told the Council on Foreign Relations in New York.

"Al-Qaeda is focusing on targets that would produce mass casualties, dramatic destruction and significant economic aftershocks." The 25-minute message marked the first time in three years that Mr. bin Laden has been seen, dispelling rumours of his death and heightening anxiety as Americans prepare to remember the more than 2,800 people killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

"... 19 young men were able ... to change the direction of its (USA's) compass. ...

... Since the 11th, many of America’s policies have come under the influence of the Mujahideen, ... And as a result, the people discovered the truth about it, its reputation worsened, its prestige was broken globally and it was bled dry economically, even if our interests overlap with the interests of the major corporations and also with those of the neoconservatives, despite the differing intentions.

And for your information media, during the first years of the war, lost its credibility and manifested itself as a tool of the colonialist empires, and its condition has often been worse than the condition of the media of the dictatorial regimes which march in the caravan of the single leader. ..."

Sept. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden will issue a video message to the American people on the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, according to a Washington- based terrorist-watchdog group.

The Site Intelligence Group showed an image of bin Laden sporting a full, dark beard that it said was from the new video and was found on radical Islamic Web sites.

Site was founded in 2002 to monitor and infiltrate terrorist groups, according to Source Watch, a project of the Madison, Wisconsin-based Center for Media and Democracy.

CAIRO, Egypt -- Osama bin Laden plans a new video to be released in the coming days ahead of the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks in what would be the first new images of the terror mastermind in nearly three years, al-Qaida's media arm announced Thursday.

The al-Qaida leader has not appeared in new video footage since Oct. 29, 2004, and he has not put out a new audiotape in more than a year.
