Osama Tape Analysis: He's On His Own

The poor quality of Osama bin-Laden's latest message - a audio-only recording with crackling voice-distorting static, may shed some light on the whereabouts of the fugitive Islamist leader. This contrasts sharply with the clear images and sound of a video released earlier this month showing al-Qaeda's No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahiri. "Firstly, it indicates the recordings were made in different places, and hence that the two men are not hiding out together" says Hani al-Sebai, director of London-based al-Maqrizi Institute for Historical Studies.

"The poor quality of bin Laden's recording suggests that from his hideaway, he doesn't have access to the same technology as al-Zawhairi. Also bin-Laden speaks in a hushed tones, which could mean he didn't want to be hear by those near him when the recording was made," al-Sebai who is an al-Qaeda expert told Adnkronos International (AKI).

More: MSNBC: U.S. military and intelligence officials believe bin Laden remains in hiding somewhere on either side of the rugged Pakistan-Afghanistan border — his whereabouts closely guarded by local tribesmen. It's believed he rarely travels, and when he does, it's alone. No large entourage — a potential dead giveaway — and probably on motorbike.

Update: Surprise -- Opinion Split on Tape's Significance
