MUCH TO BE HUMBLE ABOUT:

Al-Jazeera 'on crusaders' side' over bin Laden (David Blair, 26/10/2007, Daily Telegraph)

Al-Jazeera, the controversial Arab satellite channel, has been denounced for siding with the "crusaders" after it broadcast a message from Osama bin Laden that made him appear unusually humble.

In his latest missive, bin Laden admitted that al-Qa'eda's organisation in Iraq had made mistakes and called for unity among Muslims.

"Some of you have been lax in one duty, which is to unite your ranks," said bin Laden, in a taped message.

"I advise myself, Muslims in general and brothers in al-Qa'eda everywhere to avoid extremism in men and groups."


You'd think the Mossad could afford a more realistic beard for the guy playing OBL.

Looked at another way, this gives slight credence to the 9/11 truthers. How else might some explain their incompetence?

Mossad? I think OBL is paid by the CIA.

It would explain why the CIA keeps 'authenticating' such obvious fakes.

We can grant the CIA the Allende coup, but the notion they've done anything else right is unsupported by history.
