The United States has released several videos seized by U.S. forces from Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden’s Pakistani hideout that show him watching himself on television and rehearsing to make statements to the world.
The intelligence official briefing reporters said the videos, computer drives and other materials showed that bin Laden was “far from a figurehead, he was an active player” in al-Qaida’s operation.
Bin Laden seemed particularly concerned about how he presented himself to the world.
One video showed bin Laden intently watching television newscasts about himself.
Sitting on the floor, wrapped in a blanket, holding a remote control, flipping among channels that apparently were showing live coverage of himself.
In that video, his unkempt beard was streaked gray. But in another, he had apparently dyed his beard black and neatly trimmed it for the filming of a propaganda video, one titled “Message to the American People,” that was believed to have been recorded last October or November.
Peep the video below and let us know does this evidence help or hurt your skepticism on Osama being dead?
