The story is here. I have a preview tape courtesy of Osama's always helpful PR people. Osama isn't in the video himself, although he did direct, choreograph and executive-produce. Book and lyrics by Ayman al-Zawahiri.
From the BBC report:
The website also included a photograph, which appeared to show Bin Laden has aged compared with previous pictures - although his beard now looks dark rather than greying.
I have to say he looks great - every bit as vital as those Russian leaders they used to pump full of formaldehyde and prop up on the Kremlin balcony on May Day. I hope the CIA can find out what he's using on his beard - I could use a splash around the temples.
Another amusing line:
Correspondents say a new video - if indeed one does appear - would serve to dispel persistent rumours that the al-Qaeda leader might have died.
Right. Because it's totally impossible to fake something like that - the technology just doesn't exist.
