Official: Bin Laden Capture Close

The audio tapes don't stand independent scrutiny either.

Bin Laden tape ?gfaked?h

swissinfo November 29, 2002 11:01 AM

Swiss researchers say they are 95 per cent certain that a recent audio tape attributed to the Saudi dissident, Osama bin Laden, is not genuine.

The Lausanne-based Dalle Molle Institute for Perceptual Artificial Intelligence (IDIAP) claims it was recorded by an impostor.

The review of the tape, which was first aired on November 12 by the Arabic television network, Al-Jazeera, was commissioned by the French television channel, France 2.

However, having compared the most recent tape with 20 previous recordings attributed to bin Laden, the IDIAP claims the voice is not that of the al-Qaeda leader.

Professor Hervé Boulard, the institute?fs director, told France 2 that he was 95 per cent certain that ?git has not been recorded by bin Laden?h.

The IDIAP, which is affiliated to the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne and the University of Geneva, said the risk of error was just five per cent.

The voice on the tape praises recent attacks against Western targets including the siege of a Moscow theatre by Chechen rebels, the bombing of a French oil tanker off the coast of Yemen, and the Bali bombing.

The speaker also warns America?fs allies – particularly Britain, France, Italy, Canada, Germany and Australia – that they will also be targeted if they continue to back the US.

At the time of the tape?fs appearance, officials in the United States concluded that it was ?gprobably?h bin Laden speaking. They said it was the clearest evidence yet that bin Laden had survived the US-led bombing in Afghanistan.

Rival study

The Swiss findings, however, are in direct contrast to voice recognition tests commissioned by the weekly French news magazine, ?gL?fExpress?h.

The magazine asked two experts to examine the tape: Bernard Gautheron, director of the phonetic testing laboratory at the University of Paris?fs Institute of Linguistics and Phonetics; and Olivier Fiani, a translator and expert on Middle East affairs.

Gautheron concluded that there was a ?gvery strong probability?h that the tape was authentic.

In an interview with swissinfo, he cast doubt on whether the computers used by the IDIAP had been subtle enough to pick up all the known nuances of bin Laden?fs speech pattern, including his use of language.

?gOsama bin Laden?fs speech is characterised by a certain number of tics,?h he said. ?gComputers do not take into account these elements which are nonetheless very important.?h

swissinfo with agencies
Al Qaeda also is a myth, it's a fiction that was created to scare gullible people into supporting a racist war against Muslims and Arabs, all for the sake of enriching greedy war profiteers and power hungry sociopaths who wish to invade and occupy middle east countries based on the false pretense of spreading democracy and freedom... it's all BS, and the USA and the UK are now considered the new Nazis of today.

Welcome to the world of George Orwell's 1984.

People are being DECEIVED into fighting and risking their lives in a war for profit - for no other reason than to make a few liars and murdering people into mega rich, mega powerful billionairres and multi-millionairres.

This is evil mass-murder and war profiteering at it's worst.


1. We have MI5 (British CIA) posing as Alqueda.
"Al-Qaeda cleric exposed as an MI5 double agent",,,1-3-1050175,00.html

2. We have Mossad (Israel CIA) posing as ALqueda in Palestine:

3. We have USA posing as Alqueda:

The FBI lists Gadahn's aliases as Abu Suhayb Al-Amriki, Abu Suhayb, Yihya Majadin Adams, Adam Pearlman, and Yayah. But Adam Pearlmen is his REAL name! Adam is the grandson of the late Carl K. Pearlman; a prominent Jewish urologist in Orange County. Carl was also a member of the board of directors of the Anti-Defamation League, which was caught spying on Americans for Israel in 1993, much as AIPAC has been caught up in the more recent spy scandal.

3. We have israel posing as alqueda in the phillipines.

4. British SAS posing as Iraqi Insurgants:

The two British operatives, arrested by Basra police and later freed by a British military operation, were identified by the BBC as "members of the SAS elite special forces" ( They were disguised by wigs and Arab dress. Iraqi sources reported that the Iraqi police were watching the two, and when they tried to approach them they shot two policemen and tried to escape the scene. The Iraqi police chased and captured them, to discover large amount of explosives planted in the car, which apparently was planned to be remotely detonated in the busy market of Basra. The SAS involvement in Iraq was discovered on the 30th of January 2005 when an RAF Hercules plane crashed near Baghdad killing then British servicemen after dropping off fifty SAS members north of Baghdad to fight Iraqi guerillas.

There's been other fake videos since. Fake bin Laden tapes, "verified" by the CIA, are nothing new. Every supposed bin Laden statement since 2001 has been blatantly bogus.

Perhaps due to the widespread hilarity evoked by "Fatty bin Laden," the next Osama from beyond the grave message had no images it was an audiotape delivered to al-Jazeera in fall 2002. The CIA verified it as authentic and then got a rotten egg in the face when the world's foremost voice identification experts in Switzerland reported that "the message was recorded by an impostor."

Even the Christian Science Monitor doesn't buy the phony 'confession' tape anymore
The "confession" isn't one, but a mistranslation – and there are mistakes on the tape. Arabic is an extremely difficult language to translate accurately and unambiguously into English because of the radical differences in structure and alliteration.

The real Osama bin Laden has been dead since December 2001.

This faking of videos in an attempt to demonize Arabs and Islam is from uncommon these days
Atwar Bahjat horror story [UPDATE: it's a hoax.]

The USA government got caught lying in this way before

The real Hanni Majour

The guy that the US government tried to claim was him

I guess he must've had a head transplant. Not a very convincing image from a security camera either; there's no date or time. Every security camera image that I've ever seen had a date and time stamp.

and nine of the alleged hijackers are still alive!

Really, there's very little evidence of any Arabs being involved in the 9/11 attacks.
Ever notice that every "terror" event now is suddenly Al Quaida? Groups of people who don't know each other are suddenly all part of one large and well organized team? That isn't organized terrorists, that is a very selective and talented press spin from people like Rove and Bush... forming up the "enemy". Americans are most happy when they see white hat / black hat... they don't work well with grey. Bush is giving them what they want, a single enemy and single target to cover everything bad in the world.
