Hoax: White House Claims 4-Year-Old Bin Laden Video Is New Footage

Dubious Bin Laden “Home Movies” Identical To Tapes Released 4 Years Ago By Pentagon Front Group

In a desperate effort to bolster its crumbling official narrative, the White House today released a set of dubious Bin Laden “home movies” purportedly seized from his compound during the raid on Sunday night that it claims show Bin Laden on camera in 2010, but the tapes are almost identical to footage released almost four years ago by a notorious Pentagon front group that acts as a conduit for US intelligence by regularly releasing fake Al-Qaeda videos.

Before we even look at the new tapes, recall that the Washington Post reported last year on how CIA officials recruited “darker-skinned employees” to create fake Bin Laden tapes. The fact that the CIA created fake Bin Laden tapes is an admitted fact, not a conspiracy theory.

“Extraordinary home videos taken from Osama bin Laden’s hideout show the terrorist leader watching news coverage of himself on television,” reports the Daily Mail.

“The videos were seized by Navy SEALs after Bin Laden was killed. They were shown to reporters this afternoon by intelligence officials.”

One of the videos purports to show Bin Laden watching television news reports about himself. The footage is filmed from almost behind his head and only shows a small portion of his face. The TV shows footage of Bin Laden as well as still images and footage of Barack Obama. Interestingly, the only moment in which the cameraman zooms in on the TV so that you can clearly see the picture is when it either shows Bin Laden, Obama, or both of them in a still shot together.

Contrary to the footage of Bin Laden allegedly flicking through television channels, in which his beard is gray, in the other tapes, which the White House claims were recorded between October and November 2010, Bin Laden appears with his beard dyed black. The man watching TV appears to be much older than the Bin Laden seen in the other tapes.

MSNBC ran the video under the headline New Video Shows Bin Laden In Gold Robe. However, these tapes are almost identical to footage first released by the Pentagon front group SITE in September 2007. In that footage, Bin Laden also appears with a dyed beard and is wearing exactly the same clothes. The only thing that differs is the color of the background, but in other tapes the background is the same brown color as the 2007 tape. As computer expert Neal Krawetz’s analysis revealed, fake backgrounds are often used on purported “Al-Qaeda” tapes, where a blue screen is used to superimpose the figure of the speaker over a pre-selected backdrop.

The footage in these tapes purports to show Bin Laden making recordings in late 2010, and yet he looks identical to how he appeared in tapes first released in 2007.

The establishment media has completely failed to even mention the fact that much of the footage, which the White House claims was filmed in 2010, is almost identical to that first released in 2007 by the Pentagon front group SITE. Why would Bin Laden make a video in October 2010 and not release it? Unless this is merely outtakes from the footage already released four years ago.
It would not be the first time that tapes of Bin Laden have been passed off as new material when in fact they are years old.

In July 2007, the mainstream media heralded the arrival of a tape of Bin Laden giving a speech as new footage. In fact it was almost six years old, having been filmed in October 2001 and later released by IntelCenter, SITE’s sister organization, in October 2003. At the time we did an image comparison proving that the footage dubbed “new” in 2007 was in fact filmed in 2001 and released first by the Al-Ansaar Islamic news agency in 2002.

As we documented yesterday, the organization that released the original 2007 tape which is virtually identical to the tapes released by the White House today is nothing more than a conduit for Pentagon propaganda run the daughter of a former Israeli spy.

The SITE organization is virtually a contractor for the U.S. government, receiving some $500,000 a year annually from Uncle Sam, and has been caught releasing fake Al-Qaeda tapes on numerous occasions. SITE’s website domain is hosted by servers located in Washington DC, which are stationed between the Department of Homeland Security and the Israeli Embassy.

As in the 2007 tape, the As-Sahab logo appears in the “new” tapes released by the White House. A 2007 investigation by Neal Krawetz featured in Wired Magazine found that the As-Sahab logo was added at the same as the IntelCenter logo, another US military-industrial complex front, meaning the so-called “Al-Qaeda” tapes were in fact coming straight out of US intelligence circles. Although Krawetz asserted that this was the case in a taped interview, after the story began to receive attention he mysteriously backed away from the claim despite Wired’s Kim Zetter receiving approval from Krawetz that all the information contained in the original report was valid.

These “new” tapes which are actually identical to footage first released in 2007 will do little to firm up the White House’s crumbling Bin Laden narrative, which has been under suspicion after it was reported that Osama’s body was hastily dumped into the sea and President Obama refused to release an image of the dead Bin Laden.

The narrative of last Sunday’s raid has flip-flopped constantly and even mainstream journalists are starting to become wary, particularly after it emerged that Obama and Hillary could not have watched the raid unfold live as they had claimed because the live feed was cut before the Navy SEALS entered the compound, meaning that the “situation room” photos that purported to show Obama and Hillary watching Bin Laden’s assassination live were in fact completely staged.

A longer clip of the video that claims to show Bin Laden watching TV appears below.

New Footage From Inside Bin Laden’s Compound

Al Jazeera
May 7, 2011

Al Jazeera has obtained new footage of Bin Laden’s compound from shortly after the raid.

Brighter than other interior footage we’ve seen, this video shows blood and rubble throughout the house. As noted in other videos, there are no weapons.

The video also shows Bin Laden’s vegetable garden and other clues to his daily life.

Torture Nation: Enhancing the Move Toward Totalitarianism

Kurt Nimmo
May 6, 2011

Now that the government claims it offed Osama bin Laden – never mind a complete lack of evidence – it is time to elevate the brutal and medieval techniques the government said it used to break the case.

Darth Vader, aka Mr. Darkside Dick Cheney, former Justice Department official John Yoo – who said it is legal and permissible to crush the testicles of little boys to extract information – and Congress critter anti-jihad crusader Peter King from New York all said this week that “enhanced interrogation,” otherwise known as torture, is a vital element in the war against manufactured enemies.

Rep. King: Torture works.

Even Judicial Watch piled on. On May 4, it said documents recently obtained from the CIA through a FOIA request demonstrate the information gained by so-called “enhanced interrogation techniques” ultimately led to the purported – and now reported by the corporate media as truth – killing of Osama bin Laden. “These documents show that without ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ Osama bin Laden might still be hiding in his compound plotting to kill more innocents,” writes Judicial Watch. Or he might still be resting in his Afghan grave, where he was reportedly buried in late 2001, according to an Egyptian newspaper.

Part of the fantasy narrative is that Osama was smoked out of his Pakistan mansion thanks to torture. “Tonight, we give thanks to the countless intelligence and counterterrorism professionals who’ve worked tirelessly to achieve this outcome,” Obama said in his victory speech. “The American people do not see their work, nor know their names. But tonight, they feel the satisfaction of their work and the result of their pursuit of justice.”

Let us praise tireless CIA waterboarders, even as the small fish like the chump Lynndie England and her cohorts were prosecuted, never mind they were following orders.

Let us thank various medieval practices – including strappado hanging, the rape of teenage boys, sexual assaults with acid-dipped phosphorescent tubes, and other reprehensible acts employed at Abu Ghraib and other torture chambers, all done, we are told, in our names because they hate us for our freedom.

On Wednesday, White House spokesman Jay Carney said enhanced interrogation techniques by “unbelievably competent professionals” helped lead the government to Osama bin Laden. Carney said Obama and crew will not rule out using torture again in the future. In fact, we can bet on it.

The unitary executive shall rein supreme.

Recall John Yoo telling us torturing children is permissible under the so-called unitary executive, a somewhat neutral term for dictatorship. Yoo’s boss at the time, George Bush the Lesser, invoked dictatorial powers no less than 103 times through so-called signing statements informing Congress he would disobey the Constitution, specifically Article I, Section 7. The now widely ignored passage states that the president has three choices – he can veto a law in its entirety, sign it, or do nothing. It is unconstitutional for the president to ignore or change legislation signed into law by Congress.

Bush also violated the Constitution and applicable federal law when he repeatedly authorized the National Security Agency to conduct electronic surveillance without a warrant.

Bush’s unitary executive, inherited by Obama, is nothing more than the ancient practice of a king with advisers. It is a recipe for dictatorship and totalitarianism — and more torture and endless war.

Previously, under our constitutional system, authority came from the people and was passed down to an elected Congress and the Supreme Court, then down to the president, whose job it is to execute the laws made by Congress in the name of the people. Our president is an executive who is supposed to make sure the will of the people reigns supreme. He is not a king.

On April 18, Steven Thomma, writing for McClatchy, lamented Obama’s rule and how it has become a mirror reflection of Bush’s rule. An illustration below reveals how Obama has embraced Bush and expanded the unitary fascist dictatorship of the president. It is fascist in the true sense, as defined by the originator of modern fascism, Benito Mussolini. Fascism, Mussolini explained, is corporatism plain and simple.

This is not coincidental. The plutocracy – the global elite, bankers, and transnational corporatists – have long planned a move away from the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It stands between them and total domination.

Our heritage of liberty and natural rights is in the process of being replaced by the iron-fisted rule of new technocratic kings, masters who envision a global dictatorship and a high-tech control grid under a one-world government.
