You gotta be kidding me. “That’s bin Laden’s ear! I would know it anywhere!”
CNN is breathlessly reporting a new video of bin Laden “as we have never seen him before. Watching al Jazeera and stroking his beard”
Apparently the White House arranged a viewing for some of their most sycophantic “reporters” and they showed them this laughable bit of Insta-PR. Notice that the “reporter” mentions that the White House choose not to play the audio part of the video for them…
What follows is a video of a guy shot from behind and to the left, not even in full profile, who never turns toward the camera, is wearing a blanket across his body so you can’t see anything but the back side of his head and a little of the left side of his face.
This is what passes for “evidence” these days? This and an obviously photoshopped picture of his “wife’s” Yemeni passport?
I watched the entire CNN video and the image of bin Laden never gets any better than this. He turns a little to the left at one point for about a half a second. I got a screen shot of that as well…
Ladies and gentlemen; that is not Osama bin Laden. Here’s a closer view
If anyone can date this image, you win the prize… it’s a screen-shot taken from the bin Laden home video…
this is the screen shot this close up was taken from
here is a screen-shot of the moment before in the video when the bin Laden image is larger, just before it moves to the background and Obama’s image appears.
So this is definitely a video of Osama and a smiling Obama… what context would a network show Osama bin Laden on the same screen as a smiling Barack Obama?
