Dubious Bin Laden “Home Movies” Identical To Tapes Released 4 Years Ago By Pentagon Front Group

In a desperate effort to bolster its crumbling official narrative, the White House today released a set of dubious Bin Laden “home movies” purportedly seized from his compound during the raid on Sunday night that it claims show Bin Laden on camera in 2010, but the tapes are almost identical to footage released almost four years ago by a notorious Pentagon front group that acts as a conduit for US intelligence by regularly releasing fake Al-Qaeda videos.

Before we even look at the new tapes, recall that the Washington Post reported last year on how CIA officials recruited “darker-skinned employees” to create fake Bin Laden tapes. The fact that the CIA created fake Bin Laden tapes is an admitted fact, not a conspiracy theory.

“Extraordinary home videos taken from Osama bin Laden’s hideout show the terrorist leader watching news coverage of himself on television,” reports the Daily Mail.

“The videos were seized by Navy SEALs after Bin Laden was killed. They were shown to reporters this afternoon by intelligence officials.”

One of the videos purports to show Bin Laden watching television news reports about himself. The footage is filmed from almost behind his head and only shows a small portion of his face. The TV shows footage of Bin Laden as well as still images and footage of Barack Obama. Interestingly, the only moment in which the cameraman zooms in on the TV so that you can clearly see the picture is when it either shows Bin Laden, Obama, or both of them in a still shot together.

Contrary to the footage of Bin Laden allegedly flicking through television channels, in which his beard is gray, in the other tapes, which the White House claims were recorded between October and November 2010, Bin Laden appears with his beard dyed black. The man watching TV appears to be much older than the Bin Laden seen in the other tapes.

MSNBC ran the video under the headline New Video Shows Bin Laden In Gold Robe. However, these tapes are almost identical to footage first released by the Pentagon front group SITE in September 2007. In that footage, Bin Laden also appears with a dyed beard and is wearing exactly the same clothes. The only thing that differs is the color of the background, but in other tapes the background is the same brown color as the 2007 tape. As computer expert Neal Krawetz’s analysis revealed, fake backgrounds are often used on purported “Al-Qaeda” tapes, where a blue screen is used to superimpose the figure of the speaker over a pre-selected backdrop.


The footage in these tapes purports to show Bin Laden making recordings in late 2010, and yet he looks identical to how he appeared in tapes first released in 2007.

The establishment media has completely failed to even mention the fact that much of the footage, which the White House claims was filmed in 2010, is almost identical to that first released in 2007 by the Pentagon front group SITE. Why would Bin Laden make a video in October 2010 and not release it? Unless this is merely outtakes from the footage already released four years ago.

It would not be the first time that tapes of Bin Laden have been passed off as new material when in fact they are years old.

In July 2007, the mainstream media heralded the arrival of a tape of Bin Laden giving a speech as new footage. In fact it was almost six years old, having been filmed in October 2001 and later released by IntelCenter, SITE’s sister organization, in October 2003. At the time we did an image comparison proving that the footage dubbed “new” in 2007 was in fact filmed in 2001 and released first by the Al-Ansaar Islamic news agency in 2002.

As we documented yesterday, the organization that released the original 2007 tape which is virtually identical to the tapes released by the White House today is nothing more than a conduit for Pentagon propaganda run the daughter of a former Israeli spy.

The SITE organization is virtually a contractor for the U.S. government, receiving some $500,000 a year annually from Uncle Sam, and has been caught releasing fake Al-Qaeda tapes on numerous occasions. SITE’s website domain is hosted by servers located in Washington DC, which are stationed between the Department of Homeland Security and the Israeli Embassy.

As in the 2007 tape, the As-Sahab logo appears in the “new” tapes released by the White House. A 2007 investigation by Neal Krawetz featured in Wired Magazine found that the As-Sahab logo was added at the same as the IntelCenter logo, another US military-industrial complex front, meaning the so-called “Al-Qaeda” tapes were in fact coming straight out of US intelligence circles. Although Krawetz asserted that this was the case in a taped interview, after the story began to receive attention he mysteriously backed away from the claim despite Wired’s Kim Zetter receiving approval from Krawetz that all the information contained in the original report was valid.

These “new” tapes which are actually identical to footage first released in 2007 will do little to firm up the White House’s crumbling Bin Laden narrative, which has been under suspicion after it was reported that Osama’s body was hastily dumped into the sea and President Obama refused to release an image of the dead Bin Laden.

The narrative of last Sunday’s raid has flip-flopped constantly and even mainstream journalists are starting to become wary, particularly after it emerged that Obama and Hillary could not have watched the raid unfold live as they had claimed because the live feed was cut before the Navy SEALS entered the compound, meaning that the “situation room” photos that purported to show Obama and Hillary watching Bin Laden’s assassination live were in fact completely staged.

A longer clip of the video that claims to show Bin Laden watching TV appears below.

Staged: White House “Situation Room” Photos Part Of Bin Laden Fable

Staged: White House Situation Room Photos Part Of Bin Laden Fable 050511top

In addition to images of President Obama’s address to the American public on Sunday night, it has emerged that the dramatic photos of Obama, Biden, Hillary Clinton and members of the White House security team watching the assassination of Bin Laden “live” were in fact completely staged, casting further doubt on the ever-changing official account of the operation.

On Tuesday, the White House released provocative images that purported to show, “US President Barack Obama watching live footage of the operation that killed Osama bin Laden.”

In one particularly dramatic photo, Hillary Clinton is seen with her hand anxiously clasped over her mouth as if reacting to a crucial event. Other photos show Obama and his staff with stern faces as they discuss the operation while it unfolds.

The photos were described by many as having “historical significance,” forming a “captivating” record of Obama’s greatest success and being the “defining moment” of his Presidency.

We were also told by the media that, “The leader of the free world saw the terror chief shot in the left eye.”

“US president Barack Obama along with his high-level team, watched live coverage in the White House, as the commandos gunned down the world’s most wanted terrorist Osama Bin Laden Via a video camera fixed to the helmet of a US Navy Seal,” it was also reported.

US chief counter-terrorism advisor John Brennan claimed that the head cameras that fed audio and video back to the White House, allowed Obama and his staff to track the operation “on an ongoing basis”.

But the claims have been proven to be completely fraudulent.

Alongside the crumbling official narrative of the operation to kill Bin Laden, it has emerged that Obama, Clinton and their staff saw virtually nothing whatsoever of the mission that allegedly led to the assassination of Bin Laden, because according to CIA director Leon Panetta, there was a 25 minute blackout of the live feed which was cut off before the US Navy SEALS even entered the building.

“A photograph released by the White House appeared to show the President and his aides in the situation room watching the action as it unfolded. In fact they had little knowledge of what was happening in the compound,” reports the London Telegraph.

In an interview with PBS, Mr Panetta said: “Once those teams went into the compound I can tell you that there was a time period of almost 20 or 25 minutes where we really didn’t know just exactly what was going on. And there were some very tense moments as we were waiting for information.

The notion that Obama “saw the terror chief shot in the left eye” live on video is a total fabrication. At best, the photos were cynically misrepresented by the White House and the mainstream media, at worst, they were completely staged to add a contrived dramatic spin to the unfolding wall-to-wall press coverage of the Bin Laden fable, which is becoming more convoluted with each passing day.

The key image that clearly indicates the photos were staged is the shot of Hillary Clinton with her hand over her mouth. Clinton looks shocked as if she has witnessed something disturbing, obviously implying that she is watching a live shootout or someone being assassinated, when in fact she saw nothing of the kind because the feed was cut before the SEALS entered the compound. The White House was careful to not describe this image as representing the moments during which the SEALS stormed the building, but the implication was clear, and the establishment media did the work for them, reporting that the picture depicted Obama and Clinton, “watching intently as the raid takes place,” another total falsehood.

Former top spymaster Dr. Steve R. Pieczenik, a man who worked under five different US Presidents, has been proven correct in his assertion that the photos were “Nonsense….total make-up, make believe,” and proof that Americans were being held captive to a “theater of the absurd”.

The entire account of the Bin Laden raid is fast turning into a Jerry Bruckheimer-style fictional made for TV movie, just as the Jessica Lynch “rescue” was scripted for public consumption, solely to elicit contrived patriotism and pro-war sentiment amongst the American people.

In addition to the dubious situation room pictures, it has also emerged that the images of Barack Obama that appeared on Monday morning’s newspapers after he had announced the death of Bin Laden the previous night were also completely staged.

“While the photo that ran on many newspapers and websites the next morning appeared as if it were taken during Obama’s address to the nation the night before, it was actually the result of an elaborate post-speech production,” reports the International Business Times.

“As President Obama continued his nine-minute address in front of just one main network camera, the photographers were held outside the room by staff and asked to remain completely silent,” Reuters photographer Jason Reed explained in his blog.

“Once Obama was off the air, we were escorted in front of that teleprompter and the President then re-enacted the walk-out and first 30 seconds of the statement for us.”

The staging of the Obama speech photo is embarrassing, but the staging of the situation room photos, which were heavily promoted by the establishment media, falsely presented as evidence that Obama, Biden and Clinton saw the assassination of Osama live, and used by the White House to lend credence to the fairytale they were busily scripting, are damning.

We truly have entered the “theater of the absurd” when, even as the narrative of the Bin Laden fable crashes and burns, the establishment media that helped manufacture this work of fiction are still claiming that anyone who even questions the blaring inconsistencies of the official account are merely conspiracy theorists engaging in “black helicopter fantasies”.

CIA Is Behind Mid-East Uprisings

“In order to create order out of chaos and rearrange the geopolitical map, the globalists betray their former puppets for a new crop of autocrats and brutal thugs. That is precisely what is happening now in the Middle East and North Africa – the globalists are working behind the scenes to overthrow corrupt military dictatorships in order to allow an Islamic consolidation of power that will feed the paranoia of the West and initiate the plan for a new war.

Middle East Uprisings: Order Out of Chaos

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Sunday called on Muslims to “remove” the United States from the Islamic world.

“The main problem in the Muslim world is the presence of the United States. It is the biggest problem. We need to address that,” he told a gathering of Shiite and Sunni scholars during an international conference on Islam held in Tehran.

Khamenei said Muslims around the world must preserve the “people’s movement in Egypt.” He said it was the duty of both the people and dignitaries of Arab nations and the entire Islamic community.

Khamenei, however, failed to mention that while Mubarak is gone the same gaggle of military generals now control the government in Egypt. The previous so-called civilian administration and the Egyptian High Council of the Armed Forces are basically the same body.

Also not mentioned by Khamenei is the fact Sami Hafez Al-Anan (Al-Enan), the chief of staff of the Egyptian military, was in Washington for two days and visited the Pentagon after the protests began in Egypt. He was likely receiving further instruction.

On the surface, the bloody protests in Bahrain (home of the U.S. Fifth Fleet) and elsewhere in the Muslim world seem to be bad news for the United States. In fact, the exploding events are high theater and will not result in vaguely defined democracy for the people of Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Yemen, Libya, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and least of all the Palestinian territories.

Liberals love to hate Glenn Beck, but something he said recently makes a lot of sense. He said the “revolution” in Egypt is the beginning of a caliphate in the Middle East.

Beck’s task is to play the false left-right paradigm like a Stradivarius, so naturally he ties in the so-called Left in his analysis.

“For Beck, current events in Egypt are occurring as a result of their connection to his pet-list of far-Left ideologues, like Van Jones, and a host of organizations and unions allegedly linked to Soros. While many of these connections are legitimate, Beck obscures altogether the long history of Pentagon intervention in foreign politics. The CIA and U.S. military have, for decades, sponsored and created radical Islamic factions, including the Muslim Brotherhood, the Taliban and more,” Alex Jones and Aaron Dykes wrote on February 12.

Jones and Dykes conclude that in fact a complex series of destabilization efforts all across the Middle East are underway and ultimately these efforts will result in war in the region. “Control over the region, along with Central Asia, is believed to be essential for global domination. This aspiring New World Order will divide these nations in order to conquer them, even as they consolidate the major regions under a larger world government,” they write.

The idea of a Muslim caliphate and the imposition of sharia law are central to the destabilization plan. In the U.S., neocons and other Islamophobes and Likudniks have long warned about the absurd possibility of global sharia law and the threat posed by Islam.

On the propaganda front, Anjem Choudary, Abu Izzadeen and Sayful Islam serve as dupes for the corporate media as it fans the flames of anti-Islamic hysteria. Choudary, who once said “the flag of Islam will fly over the White House,” told Fox News he will lead a demonstration rallying Muslims to establish Sharia law across the United States.

Choudary’s organization, the radical Islamist group Islam4UK, is accused of operating as a front for British intelligence. It is connected to al-Muhajiroun and its leader, Omar Bakri Muhammad, who has admitted being associated with MI5.

Another useful individual for the globalists is the popular Egyptian Sunni televangelist Youssef al-Qaradawi. He has called for a Muslim United Nations and a modern version of the Prophet’s caliphate that would form a pan-national superstate. He is one of the most influential Islamic scholars in the world today. He also happens to hold a prominent role within the intellectual leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic transnational movement that was long ago penetrated by the CIA and British intelligence.

As I noted in 2006, MI5 and British intelligence have a long and sordid history of sponsoring and engaging in terrorism. Hichem Karoui, writing for Media Monitors Network in 2001, documents the heavy hand of British intelligence in Islamic terror.

Western intelligence is fomenting the popular rebellions now spanning the Islamic world. We are witnessing the next chapter in the infamous “clash of civilizations” agenda spawned by the neocons at the behest of the global elite who are engineering order out of chaos not only in the Arab and Muslim world, but in much of the third world where smoldering resentment and class warfare threatens to erupt at any moment.

On February 4, during Friday prayers, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called for an Islamic regime to be installed in Egypt. It remains to be seen if this will be the case.

It is not known if Khamenei realizes that the Islamic regime in Iran was installed by the globalists. As William Engdahl documented in his book, A Century Of War : Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order, the globalists covertly supported the Iranian revolution.

“In November 1978, then president Carter named the Bilderberg group’s George Ball, another member of the Trilateral Commission, to head a special White House Iran task force under the National Security Council’s Brzezinski,” writes Engdahl. “Ball recommended that Washington drop support for the Shah of Iran and support the fundamentalistic Islamic opposition of Ayatollah Khomeini. Robert Bowie from the CIA was one of the lead ‘case officers’ in the new CIA-led coup against the man their covert actions had placed into power 25 years earlier.”

In order to create order out of chaos and rearrange the geopolitical map, the globalists betray their former puppets for a new crop of autocrats and brutal thugs. That is precisely what is happening now in the Middle East and North Africa – the globalists are working behind the scenes to overthrow corrupt military dictatorships in order to allow an Islamic consolidation of power that will feed the paranoia of the West and initiate the plan for a new war.
