Bin Laden Gestures

In the news today: an audio message by Bin Laden, the planet’s most unlikely fugitive.

A while ago BBC news analysed (see ‘video’) of Bin Laden’s appearance and gestures in different videotapes. The most recent message dating of October 2004 shows BL in the role of elderly prince, appearing calm and restricting his gestures almost entirely to small ‘point-making’ (typical) and ‘negation-finger-shaking’. Mind you, there are those who think it’s a fake, but I’m inclined to trust the judgement of the BBC and AlJazeera.

    There is a new broadcast being verified, but it is audio with a still image.
