Expert Goes On Record: Bin Laden 9/11 Confession Is Bogus

Professor says there is no doubt infamous Bin Laden tape is fake,
being used to deflect 9/11 \"conspiracy theories\"

A leading expert on Osama Bin Laden has officially gone on the record
saying that he believes the so called \"9/11 Confession\" tape, released
shortly after the attacks, is an outright fake that has been used by
US intelligence agencies to deflect attention from
\"conspiracy theories\" about 9/11.

Professor Bruce Lawrence, head of Duke University\'s Religious Studies
program, joined Kevin Barrett last Friday on his radio show
(, 2/16/2007, first hour) in his first public interview
since comments he made last year indicating that he believes Bin Laden
may be dead and that many of the newer tapes are either fake or
consist of old audio and video.

The \"Confession\" video, played ad infinitum in the wake of the attack
on Afghanistan in December 2001, was magically found in a house in
Jalalabad after anti-Taliban forces moved in. It featured a fat Osama
laughing and joking about how he\'d carried out 9/11. The video was
also mistranslated in order to manipulate viewer opinion and featured
\"Bin Laden\" praising two of the hijackers, only he got their names

This Osama also uses the wrong hand to write with and wears gold
rings, a practice totally in opposition to the Muslim faith.

Despite the fact that the man in the video looks nothing like Bin
Laden, the CIA stood by the video whilst many, including Professor
Lawrence now, have declared it an outright fake.

Lawrence is the author of a book entitled Messages to the World: The
Statements of Osama Bin Laden, which translates Bin Laden\'s writing.
In January 2006 he told ABC news that a newly released audio tape was
missing several key elements and \"was like a voice from the grave\".
The Professor had analyzed more than 20 complete speeches and
interviews of the al Qaida leader for his book, and, while the CIA
confirmed the voice on the tape as Bin Laden, Lawrence questioned when
it was recorded and declared the timing of its release as politically

Last Friday Lawrence, citing informants in the US intelligence
apparatus\'s Bin Laden units, told Kevin Barrett that everyone knows
the tape is fake, adding that the hoax has been kept alive because it
is politically useful to those who wish to bolster the official 9/11
conspiracy that 19 hijackers directed by Bin Laden from a cave carried
out the attacks.

We have previously covered the scores of times Osama Bin Laden has
been used as a tool of fear and control as a tried and tested method
whenever the going gets tough. Many tapes have been determined to be
total fakes by voice analysis or simply re-hashes of old material.

Research led us to discover that the most recent \"Al Qaeda\" video
releases featuring Bin Laden had already featured in a docudrama The
Road to Guantanamo . The media tentatively even admitted that it was
the government that released the tapes.

In a separate revelation, AP reported that an expert on Islamic
extremism deemed the Al Qaeda footage as so out of character for al-
Qa\'ida it could have been taken by a security agency.

Bin Laden was created by US intelligence , worked with US intelligence
in the late 70s and 80s, was used as a patsy by US intelligence before
and after 911 and is now being used as a manipulative tool of fear by
the criminal elite faction currently in power in the US.

In June 2006, Muckraker Report investigative reporter Ed Haas
contacted the FBI to ask why 9/11 was not specifically mentioned on
Bin Laden\'s wanted page on the FBI website.

\"The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden\'s most wanted
page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to
9/11,\" he was told Rex Tomb.

In Bin Laden\'s first interview after the 9/11 attacks he denied any
involvement. This isn\'t like a kid caught thieving in a sweet shop -
terrorists always claim responsibility for attacks they have
perpetrated otherwise why bother killing people to send a political

Then came the now thoroughly debunked \"Confession Tape\".

The fact that the FBI does not consider the \'confession tape\' as
reliable evidence of involvement in 9/11 was subsequently completely
dismissed by the Washington Post and others who still say the tape
proves that Al-Qaeda have, \"proudly taken responsibility for the
