Well, it just got a little harder to believe the Osama tape was faked. It seems that the government's publicly released translation left out a few bits. Among these nuggets: Osama's visitor, Khalid al Harbi (formerly known as "the fat guy on the right") was smuggled into Afghanistan by Saudi religious police, and brought tidings of support from prominent clerics with direct ties to the Saudi regime.

Reasons why the United States would want to fake a tape with these bits, incriminating a close ally which the U.S. has otherwise been bending over backwards to protect, are left as an exercise for the interested anti-American fanatic.
