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.
