The Al Queda 9/11 Anniversary Tape

As reported on CNN, only lends credence to the notion that Osama has gone on to his eternal reward. After all, you would think that the #1 guy would want the spotlight on the big day. Maybe a new tape will turn up in the next day or so, but if it doesn’t, Osama is either dead or no longer considered a player in the Al-Q world.

Most of the tape, as summarized by CNN, is fairly standard lunatic terrorist boilerplate.

The other interesting thing is the juxtaposition of headlines.

First, we have Al Queda busy taking credit and showing videos about how they planned 9/11:

“A videotape aired last week by Arabic-language network Al-Jazeera showed what was described as a meeting between bin Laden and Ramzi Binalshibh, a key plotter in the September 11 attacks, making preparations for the suicide hijackings.”

I wonder how this will be spun by the 9/11 conspiracy nuts?
