Right on Cue


Al-Qaida leader to address U.S. in first video in nearly 3 years, group says
Osama bin Laden will release a video ahead of the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks in what would provide the first new images of the terror mastermind in nearly three years, al-Qaida’s media arm announced Thursday.
Analysts noted that al-Qaida tends to mark the Sept. 11 anniversary with a slew of messages, and the Department of Homeland Security said it had no credible information warning of an imminent threat to the United States.
Still, bin Laden’s appearance would be significant. The al-Qaida leader has not appeared in new video footage since October 2004, and he has not put out a new audiotape in more than a year, his longest period without a message.
Interesting that whenever it's time for things to heat up, they trot out Bin Laden.
They found Saddam Hussein six feet under, hiding in a hole in the ground, but Bin Laden looks like he has gained some weight and even found some hair dye to darken his beard.
Not to shabby considering he has been hiding from the United States and all it's Armed Forces since 2001.
