Will new Osama bil Laden video clip show up after his death?

CNN’s Drew Griffin reports on the chain of events that lead up to the death of Osama bin Laden.

The Huffington Post reported last night:

Osama bin Laden may be dead, but U.S. officials expect at least one new bin Laden tape to surface soon, according to multiple reports.

According to The New York Daily News, bin Laden may have ordered the tape to be released in the event of his death.

The tape is said to be a recording created not long before his death, though authorities say there is no indication he knew the United States was closing in on him. It’s not clear whether it’s audio or video.

Media outlets will have a tough decision on their hands when the tape does surface. Airing it could potentially boost his legacy as a martyr and incite new violence.


Several dozen demonstrators gathered in Pakistan’s largest city, Karachi, on Tuesday, to protest against the killing of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in a US special forces’ mission a day earlier. Chanting “Obama! Solve your own problems” and “The friend of America is a traitor”, members of Pasban (Pakistan Voice Against Injustice) youth organisation rallied against US troops crossing into Pakistan to raid bin Laden’s compound in the town of Abbottabad.
