I wish I had paid more attention to this thread. It looks like the OP called it right, and this was the site that they snagged the OBL tape from. At
the time it was posted, there was no major news coverage of a new OBL tape in the works. But a few hours later it was all over the news, the SITE
institute had a copy of the tape, and website was shut down.
Eventually, after I had already posted on this thread, I ran across the site again while looking for the video. I started to wonder how CNN, and the
blogs had found out about the websites post about a possible video.
There may be an earlier record of the posting on some website, but what I found was a site that that discussed a meeting on Sept. 5th, the day before
the rumors started up, with some U.S. senators who had a meeting with some folks, talking about how AQ was using the internet. The last paragraph of
To conclude the presentation, Cooper and Eaton showed a September 2 posting from a blog, (inshallashaheed.wordpress.com) that read “Soon ….
Soon … Soon … Soon… the blessed invasion ofManhattan… There will be a special gift coming on the day of the blessed invasion of
By 9AM Sept 6th, (the next morning after that meeting) that title, (Soon Soon Soon), and website were being posted in several blogs. By about 2:45 CNN
had an article up about it, including the link (I think). About 4PM the site was shut down, along with every website that had any links posted on it.
It was about this time that reports started that SITE had a copy and was providing it to the gov.
I came back to this thread to look at the google cache that atomMan had linked for us. I found that the site in question had also posted the last
couple of AQ videos that SITE and Laura Mansfield had picked up. The website had apparently been providing Jahid type tapes for quite sometime,
although not all of them were AQ videos.
I never noticed the comments when I first looked at it, but a couple of them were pretty interesting. One was from a conspiracy website, who asked
conspiracy questions. The owner of the website knocked his truther questions down hard. Another comment was very unique. It asked if OBL was really
alive. When the website owner responded that yes, he was alive, the person asked for a tape of him with recent comments. This was Sept 3rd.
While the owner of the website doesn't seem to respond to the request, I suspect that the tape of OBL that we now have was provided to that
requestor, who I suspect is from SITE. I suspect that this tape was not quite ready for publication, but was privately provided to the requester,
prior to the planned release, sometime between the 3rd, and the 6th. I also suspect, from the writing style, the previous posts, the events that
transpired, and the awareness that few people could have provided a pre-release version of the video, that the website owner is Adam. I wish I had
paid more attention to this thread when DarkSky first posted.
On a final note, the website is down, and the google cache is gone. But there is a cached copy out there, with all the links and comments. I'll
leave it to you to debunk or verify my suspicions, because thats all they are at this point.
