Osama's clip - another point of view

The Telegraph article about the last Osama Bin Laden clip relies so heavily on CIA/FBI analysis that some lazy remarks are simply necessary. These two outfits are normally so inept that, aside of bashing each other, they seem to be no more able to find Ossie than their own respective backsides without a manual.

Of course, the article explores the Hollywood connection - the so called "new" screenwriter, one Adam Gadahn, aka Adam Pearlman - a victim of a failed abortion in Hollywood vicinity. Unfortunately, it is not a scoop for a long time - see here and here. Besides, as a screenwriter he seems to be a failure, as the low rating of the latest clip shows.

Then the following brilliant discovery:

References to the election of Nicolas Sarkozy as French president, Gordon Brown's appointment as prime minister and the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing on August 6 led them to conclude it was filmed as recently as four weeks ago.
That really shows the combined might of the above mentioned spy catchers. Impressive!
American officials said the US government had obtained a copy of the video even though it had not been posted on Islamist websites - sparking speculation that US intelligence has developed an informant or cracked al-Qaeda's cyber security.
Pathetic. Every teenager with an old PC and Internet access was able to get it for a week - as any new release of a computer game.

And even a simple conclusion by one of the so called "experts" went wrong:
Mike Baker, a former CIA covert operations officer, said the tape left bin Laden with "the title of biggest gas bag in the terrorist world".
I beg to differ: after this recording, Ossie cannot be considered the biggest one, since this thirty minute bout of flatulence left him almost empty for the next few months.

But, of course, the FBI/CIA duo totally missed the material evidence provided by the "before" and "after" pictures:

It is clear to anyone with at least one functioning eye and two brain cells that Ossie acquired access to the basic laundry services - see the clean white nightshirt and turban, plus the lack of the usual goat droppings coloring on the dressing gown. So, instead of going on about this beard of his (which we have already covered), CIA should check the list of washer/dryer purchases in the Pakistan/Afghanistan border area. And voila!

Do Elders have to do everything? No, really...
