Candid videos emerge of Osama bin Laden

Intelligence officials on Saturday unveiled five different videos of Osama bin Laden that were confiscated from the raid by U.S. forces at his Pakistan compound, which left the al Qaeda leader and four others dead.

One video looks suggests how conscious bin Laden was of his image. Sporting a white-gray beard, a dark wool cap and a blanket draped around his shoulders, he is seen sitting in front of a small television, flipping through a selection of satellite channels as he intently views video footage of himself.

Another video is a message to the United States officials believe was recorded in October or November. In that video, bin Laden's beard has been dyed black and he was well-composed as he delivered his message. The three other videos are practice sessions for videos he was planning to release to the world.

Videos provide clues into psyche of the world's most wanted terrorist

The intelligence official said audio was removed from the videos because it would be "inappropriate to spread the words of terrorists and propaganda messages, especially Osama bin Laden." Otherwise, the videos were not altered, according to the official.

Officials say the new videos collected from the site in Abbottabad are a small slice of the haul considered to be the most significant amount of intelligence ever collected from a senior terrorist. The official also said the DNA evidence unquestionably shows that the person shot and killed in the Pakistan compound was bin Laden.

    Bin Laden's assassination is not the equivalent of providing freedom and liberty or ending the Federal Reserve. Is it a big deal that one man with unaccountable dictatorial power over 300,000,000 and spending $3,000,000,000,000, not to mention the trillions of dollars already spent on bombers, tanks, aircraft carriers, submarines, satellites, rockets, missiles, artillery, chemical, biological and nuclear weapons was able to kill one man? Oh, and let’s not forget the $70,000,000,000 spent on intelligence each year.

    I hope Obama does not break his arm patting himself on the back. Bin Laden was one man. The war is only beginning.

    The US power elite, because of their arrogance and ability to shield themselves through the creation of moral hazards, refuses to acknowledge that Muslims have legitimate and significant grievances and Americans are kept ignorant as to what they are. Accordingly, true Americans we will be fighting and shedding blood against Muslims for generations and eventually we will lose. One thousand years from now there will still be Muslims in the Middle East.

    The American Justice System was NOT founded on the 'assasination principle'. Quite to the contrary.

    US Intelligence agencies should look into connection between Osama and Dawood Ibrahim, another terrorist who currently resides in Karachi, Pakistan. Dawood Ibrahim was responsible for multiple terrorist attacks ranging from 1993 violence to the most recent attack on Taj Palace Hotel that killed over 100 in India. Dawood has been granted safe haven by ISI, the Pakistan sercet agency to carry out further attacks on India. Osama was also targeting India and other countires and very utilized some of the connections/resources from Dawood Ibrahim's network in Pakistan.

    Things have changed. We no longer value even our own definition of JUSTICE. And it's nothing new: "Rome is not what she once was. We are fast approaching the day when Rome will not be swayed by the temperate middle-class but by the rich who preside over whining and bottomless bellies...and slaves." These words were written about 2000 years ago. Odd how they still hold sway.

    ...that, or a video of Usama accepting 50 million dollars cash from a former US President. What was the cash for? Well, we citizens wouldn't buy-in to invading Afghanistan to stop the russians fromm getting what that president's Carlyle Group wanted: access to Afghanistan in order to contruct pipelines to China. (yes, Afghan and China share borders) That was a long time ago. Now, Caspian Basin oil owned by the Carlyle Group flows freely to China...with your tax dollars (troops, paid militia) offering pipeline security against the locals who see not one red penny from the oil flowing accross their property.. And you thought Wal-Mart could offer such cheap plasticrap because of slave-labor. Get a clue already.

    Remember ENRON? guess what they did with the billions that they stole from US during the dubya and slick-willie administrations. They built a HUGE electric powerplant right in the middle of India, and it's powered by natural gas purchased from guess who? That's right...The Carlyle Group. Call it what you want. it is what it is.
