New Al Qaeda Video Anticipated

Caught this on the news this morning:

Osama bin Laden plans a new video to be released in the coming days ahead of the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in what would be the first new images of the terror mastermind in nearly three years, Al Qaeda’s media wing announced today.

Well, I’m not going to fall for it this time. I got the last one on DVD and it really sucked. Horrible acting, cheap production values — it’s no surprise at all that it was a straight-to-video release. Unless Bin Laden has hired an experienced camera operator and paid for a decent screenplay, I recommend you don’t waste your money on this tripe.

Insult to injury: I hear Bin Laden’s production company isn’t even union.

Update: Word that Bin Laden was in talks with Uwe Boll turned out to be just rumors.

Oh are you going to love this story. I heard it on BBC World Update at 5 A.M. this morning, but can't find the audio. Here it is from BBC News:

TV show breaches fortress Sydney: Members of an Australian television comedy show have been arrested and charged after breaching the tightest security the city has ever seen.

Apparently, if the security dudes had taken a closer look in the "motorcade," they would have seen Bin Laden in one of the cars. Also, their "credentials" had the APEC logo on them, but around the logo was the word "joke."

Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!

This sounds like the kind of clever thing Brian would do!
