He's baaaaack:
Osama bin Laden will release a new video in the coming days ahead of the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks in what would be the first new images of the terror mastermind in nearly three years, al-Qaida's media arm announced Thursday.

Analysts noted that al-Qaida tends to mark the Sept. 11 anniversary with a slew of messages, and the Department of Homeland Security said it had no credible information warning of an imminent threat to the United States.

Still, bin Laden's appearance would be significant. The al-Qaida leader has not appeared in new video footage since October 2004, and he has not put out a new audiotape in more than a year, his longest period without a message.
What, was Leno already booked up with would-be presidential contenders?

Al-Qaeda always releases some overwritten and grainy video with OBL around the anniversary of September 11, 2001, which drives the righties nuts. Sometimes I think al-Qaeda does it just to get a giggle out of how easily Homeland Security gets all twitterpated; it's like playing with a cat with a laser pointer. And since the Bush administration has lost all interest in hunting down the guy who masterminded the attacks, they have every reason to to think they can get away with it.
