    Default Video is said to show bin Laden prepping for 9/11 attacks

    (CNN) -- For the first time, a video has been released showing al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden meeting with suspected terrorist Ramzi Binalshibh, purportedly as they prepare for the September 11, 2001 attacks, according to Al-Jazeera, which aired the tape Thursday.


    Binalshibh is a Yemeni who allegedly admitted a role in planning the attacks. He was among 14 al Qaeda operatives that President Bush on Wednesday said had been transferred to the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.


    The 14 men were transferred from CIA custody so they can face military hearings if Congress approves the tribunals, the president said.

    It is alleged that Binalshibh intended to be one of the September 11 hijackers but was unable to get a visa to enter the United States despite several attempts.

    You know, you have to wonder if it is not our own sources releasing these tapes...they are just "timed" so perfectly, one with an inquiring mind would have to ask....

    care

    ps. Trivia question:

    How many Bin Laden tapes/statements have been released to us in 2006?

    don't look it up, just guess from memory!

    al Jazeera was doing a "Five Years After" thing... Just like our journalists will do. Yeah the timing is convenient, because it is supposed to be to get the most impact out of the report and make mo' money!
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    But it is nice to see an American move up the chain of command at Al Queda. LOL
