Here's what appears to look like a different one than those posted so far (or maybe an excerpt)...

At time index :50 as he turns a little talking to somebody it seems, look at his left hand gesture and fingers. Kind of reminds me of his past videos of that same gesture.

Yes. Wish too that what he's watching on TV was clearer...could be live TV or he could be watching a video.

I've watched maybe half of what I've found so far...seems to be a lot of nothing, if you ask me.

So far I haven't seen a lot that is a clue to dates these may have been made. Wish they'd release at least photos of the timestamped files they found on DVD/hard drives/thumb drives or whatever.

I was really hoping we'd get to see CIA tapes of "Pacer."

Here's one from PBS...looks to be the same, but some of these networks might be showing different segments.

All they want to do is make people think he was in the compound.

But why don't they show his face?

I have always wondered what the inside of a million dollar fortress looked like.

I can't wait to see the rest of the place.

Looks like a dump to me. And the money they're said to have spent on it ($1.5 million) goes a lot further there too.

Apparently, that money wasn't used for an elaborate surveillance or alarm system.

The one where hes talking, but is muted, kind of angers me. It's as if they don't think they've given us enough BS about this whole thing yet, so they are intentionally adding more BS to the pile.

Why release that, but with no sound? Maybe it's a confession that is dragging some of the 'higher-ups' down also. Maybe he named some people who do not want to be named......
(just a thought)

Exercise in futility, in my opinion. But we knew not to expect too much, despite how it sounded in the prerelease story.

This will satisfy some people, I suppose. And give others something to examine. I'm sure they were carefully picked so as not to reveal too much.

Have you seen a story saying where they were found (DVD, computer hard drive) yet?

Is this a joke? Show us one with his face, or don't show us anything. Should have guessed...

This one was on UK sky news.
Note the old style CRT monitor/TV screen in the video where he has NOT dyed his beard.(after they said he did on Sky)
You see it?
Now look at the images we see in the film of the TV.
Zero flicker...not possible when filming a low refresh screen.
Or did OBL have some high refresh 100+Hz screen which looked like a crappy CRT?

I reckon the video was shopped IMO.

My thoughts exactly. What other reason would there be for removing the sound? Does he spoil the outcome of the Stanley cup finals?

This is an odd comment...


The five videos, released without audio, are small part of what officials told the AP is the “largest collection of senior terrorist materials ever collected.” news.yahoo.com...

Senior terrorist materials?

From Wired...


The official told a packed room of reporters at the Pentagon on Saturday afternoon that an alphabet soup of intelligence agencies are working "around the clock" to exploit information from dozens of bin Laden's thumb drives, computers, recording devices and cellular phones to unlock clues to future terrorist attacks and the whereabouts of al-Qaida's operatives. That trove is "the largest collection of senior terrorist materials, ever" the official said. Despite years of speculation that bin Laden was a mere figurehead in the organization, he was "an active player," directing "even tactical details of the group's management" from his Abbottabad hideout.

Within the trove: at least five unreleased videos of bin Laden. According to an initial U.S. intelligence assessment, it's "highly unlikely" anyone besides the terrorist leader ever saw this footage. Most display bin Laden recording propaganda videos. One shows a haggard bin Laden watching his own TV appearances. Still others seem like outtakes: "Pakistan's funniest home videos," one reporter joked. Recorded at unknown dates, they now represent some of the last media appearances the charismatic terrorist would ever make -- and for the first time, their release is out of the control of bin Laden's propagandists. www.wired.com...


Blooper reel...lol.

Awwwww. I like the video of little Osama as a child playing "CIA operative" with his G.I. Joe dolls.

Its amazing how the release of these home videos humanizes him.

Eidt;

To correct yet another osama/obama Freudian slip.

Also from Wired about the sound...


The U.S. wouldn't release the audio accompanying this or the other four videos, out of a reluctance to spread al-Qaida propaganda. But a senior U.S. intelligence official briefing reporters said that this is a clip from an unreleased bin Laden video recorded probably between October 9 and November 5, 2010. The terrorist leader "rehashes" his usual themes, the official said: attacking U.S. foreign policy and "denigrating capitalism."

Reluctance to spread propaganda. Oh please. What a BS excuse. They've already stated they were going to release his "last message" propaganda video, I'm assuming with sound like all those in the past.

I had that exact thought too. He looks so almost sad sometimes.
