Should The Bin Laden Videotape Be Released?

The tape that was seized in Afghanistan-in which he talks of his delight in watching the news on 9/11 and gloats about his 'accomplishment'.

Apparently President Bush wants to release it, and is waiting for a final translation and to iron out any security issues.

Personally, I need no further 'proof' regarding him or his motives-and to give him this kind of attention is just what he wants. Whatever 'cave' he is in sure seems to have great media and Net access.

Here's a link w/ more information

If they don't release it now, someone will eventually buy the rights to it and include it on the "Terrorists Gone Wild" DVD......
so, yeah, they should release it now.

I think we should release it just to show the people who still do not believe Bin Laden was behind this that they are mistaken...

Are there people who believe he wasn't behind it?

I guess they believe in the tooth fairy too.

There are people all over the world. They have seen no evidence and they have been lied to by the U.S government before.

True.

But there are reasons that the US has been reluctant to release evidence of ObL and al-Qaeda's involvement in the attacks. Cynics have said it's because the evidence is flimsy or circumstantial at best, but I think it's fair to say that releasing such evidence could have hampered US intelligence efforts.

Still, there probably is a time where it's going to be counterproductive to keep hiding the evidence.

I definitely want to see it. Just saying that they have it isn't good enough for me. I'm fairly sure that Bin Laden is behind it, but hey, it could also just be three months of propaganda having melted my brain.

Me too!!!

Is it true that the only evidence on that tape is OBL saying the WTC substained more damage than he expected? Crap evidence if you ask me...

Bush claims that the tape reveals that bin Laden had considerable knowledge of the details of the WTC attacks - for example, that some of the hijackers didn't know they were in for a suicide mission until they boarded the plane.

FRankly, I don't care how much they sit on their evidence, In a perfect world for me, there would be no media coverage of this war, reports would be made when bin laden and associates were dismanteld and killed, and teh gov't would just go on about their business and take care of everything, but yah,there are stil people who doubt bin laden's involvement, I've read a few on this board, and now that this phase of the war is almost over, I guess it wouldn't be all that counter productive to sit on teh evidence.. but have you heard of teh latest Bin LAden suicide on TV rumors sparking attacks on Capitol, eiiffel tower.. and somewhere else..

The government has shown time and time again that when it is free from scrutiny, it will think nothing of engaging in illegal and immoral actions.

Some people remember the U.S government implying Nicaragua was going to invade Texas back in the 80's

I don't believe anything the government tells me. It's not in their "best interest" to tell the truth.

Therefore, even if they show the tape, I will want a personal translator to look at it and tell me what he's admitting...if anything at all.
