Quick, pull the records on every Just for Men purchase in Pakistan over the past month. Osama has new video on the way and he’s reportedly looking pretty sharp:

Terror mastermind Osama bin Laden plans a new video addressing the American people regarding the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, terror monitoring groups said Thursday.

SITE Intelligence Group said an Internet announcement of the plan included a photo of the al-Qaida leader from the upcoming video—his beard, which in previous messages had been streaked with gray, was entirely dark.

Intelcenter, which is based in Alexandria, Va., and also monitors Islamic Web sites, said the video was expected within the next 72 hours, or by Sunday. That would come before the sixth anniversary next Tuesday of the World Trade Center attack. The last bin Laden video was in October 2004, shortly before the U.S. presidential elections.

The Blotter has more:

Federal law enforcement authorities say that another Web site had posted a message on Sept. 2, promising “a special gift to be delivered on the blessed day of the invasion of Manhattan.”

I hope it’s just a video. Hot Air has a still shot from the video. While Stratfor reminds us that:

We have no idea whether bin Laden is still alive and therefore no idea whether this tape will actually appear. It would appear to us that bin Laden, in order to maintain his credibility, would have wanted to appear more recently and frequently than he has. It is possible that security considerations have caused him to avoid videos or more frequent audios, or it might have been useful to maintain his mystique. It also is possible that he is dead.

    To Osama Bin Laden,

    Who is this uncircumcised Saudi, that he should defy the armies of the living God?

    This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Talibans/Al-Qaeda to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. Then all this assembly shall know that the LORD does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the LORD’s, and He will give you into our hands.

    New Osama video seems yet another forgery. Everyone needs Osama alive:
    terrorists as symbolic leader and the US Administration – to avoid
    scaling down the war on terror.
    Obadiah Shoher rightly notes (
    http://www.samsonblinded.org/news/osama-commemorates-911-1114 ) that
    new Osama talks like a leftist university professor. I like Shoher’s
    analysis. No way a terrorist leader like Osama would use a speechwriter. Osama is famous
    for his rhetoric.
    Also, in the tape Osama both threatens America with attack (by
    “proving” Americans polytheists) and offers (yet another time)
    long-term coaching in Islam.
    But his dyed beard makes me cautious. Islam’s mujahedeen dye their
    beards before battle.

    I wonder if for the seventh anniversary the government is finally going to tell us how gigantic skyscrapers can “collapse” at freefall rate (as the 9/11 whitewash commission and the N.I.S.T. both admitted) when anyone with common sense can figure out that the uppermost part of a building is not going to be able to “fall” into and THROUGH the remaining solid majority of said building at anything remotely resembling the rate of solid objects falling through air (barring the use of explosives i.e. a controlled demolition). Solids just cannot otherwise pass through other solids like that without something (explosives) rendering the remaining majority to such a non-resisting state. Think we’ll finally get an actual explanation? Nah, most Americans are far too dumb and detached and mentally castrated to even consider something like that anyway.
