Neoconservative war crazies Rita Katz and Josh Devon of the SITE Group in the US claim that a new tape of Osama bin Laden will be aired on 11 September (next Tuesday). The picture of bin Laden that they have published, inferring that it is a still grab from the tape, while resembling bin Laden, when compared with other known pictures of bin Laden, is in fact nothing like him. Basically the nose is all wrong.
Apart from that of course, there is also the small matter of bin Laden’s death which was well reported at the time but has since been conveniently forgotten.
Let the two-minute hate session begin. Watch out for pictures of Osama bin Emmanuel Goldstein Laden in a newspaper and TV station near you any day now – just in case you’d forgotten what he looked like (in fact, they’re banking on it!)
