The Origin of Feces 

Via Zemblan patriot J.D.: The CIA is unable to authenticate a purported al Qaeda terror tape in which a speaker who is "disguised but speaks 'alarmingly' fluent English in an American accent" threatens an attack on the U.S. that would "dwarf" 9/11.

ABC News, which supposedly received the tape "from a terrorist source in Waziristan," turned the tape over to the CIA and NSA for verification instead of broadcasting it immediately, leading Matt Drudge to accuse the network of suppressing the tape for political reasons. From an article at Raw Story:
As not a single tape has been released to the American press before the Arab media, the tape’s release will surely raises questions about it being politically engineered.

According to Drudge, the ‘terrorist’ is in fact an American, and says, “The streets will run with blood,” and “America will mourn in silence” because “they will be unable to count the number of the dead.” It is said to add that America has brought this on itself for electing George Bush who has made war on Islam by destroying the Taliban and making war on Qaeda . . . .

The terrorist’s face is concealed, and speaks with an American accent, he asserts, speculating the man “may be Adam Gadhan - aka Adam Pearlman - a southern California native who was highlighted by the FBI in May as an individual most likely to be involved in or have knowledge of the next al Qaeda attacks.”

The tape is reported to be an hour in length. The man “identifies himself as ‘Assam the American.’”
You were expecting maybe Ahab the A-rab?
