Osama gets a makeover Update: Video reportedly authentic…and recent

Update 9/7 12:00pm Eastern. All the latest. The White House has the tape. Apparently authentic and recent.

Update 1025pm Eastern. Allah says reports are buzzing that the video is coming tonight.


The SITE website is down at the moment, but they’ve got the scoop on the alleged bin Laden video to be released in the next 72 hours:

Terror mastermind Osama bin Laden plans a new video addressing the American people regarding the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, terror monitoring groups said Thursday.

SITE Intelligence Group said an Internet announcement of the plan included a photo of the al-Qaida leader from the upcoming video—his beard, which in previous messages had been streaked with gray, was entirely dark.

Wonder if he got Botox, too?

Rita Katz, director of the Washington-based SITE Institute, said bin Laden’s beard appeared to have been dyed, which she said is a popular practice in the Middle East.

“I think it works for their benefit that he looks young, he looks healthy,” Katz said of the new image.

Allah’s got the pre-Grecian formula compare and contrast; he smells “special gift.”

Rusty at the Jawa Report muses: “Look at the two pics AllahP has up. Isn’t it odd that bin Laden is wearing the same outfit? What could that mean?”

More from Rusty:

Prediction 1: Any “new” video of Osama will be him talking in generalities, conveniently wearing same clothes as previous videos, only everything looks a bit darker in it. What, you don’t think al Qaeda editor at large Adam Gadahn doesn’t know how to use video editing tools, which include simple color and tone “fixes”?

Prediction 2: Anything “new” that could possible serve as “proof of life” will actually be audio overlaid on to static photos of bin Laden.
