New Tape: Osama Bin Laden or Sacha Baron Cohen?

A new audio tape purporting to be from Osama bin Laden, the latest in a series released in response to major events, criticizes President Barack Obama for his role in the Nicaraguan coup, an energy bill that doesn't satisfy governments of other countries, autopsy reports showing Michael Jackson to have been a virtual skeleton at time of death, the U.S. losing to Brazil in men's soccer, Mark Sanford's extramarital affair and the popularity of reality TV.

"There has never been a fake bin Laden tape," a U.S. counterterrorism official announced, but they are investigating as the voice of the al-Qaeda leader sounds suspiciously like that of Sacha Baron Cohen.
