Nobody verifies her claims. Rita Katz/SITE says "Al Qaeda" did it, it hits the "news":
Do YOU believe things people simply "SAY"...with no evidence? Then can't someone LIE to you, and you'll believe it?
Rita Katz/SITE, the source of all the FAKE Bin Laden videos and audios over the years, is at it again. And, as usual, the mainstream media doesn't point out anything about the background of Rita Katz/SITE and simply pimps her FAKE TERROR videos and audios. The mainstream media's "job" is to be a disseminate FEAR via evidence-free "stories" about the "War On Terror" on behalf of organizations that benefit from it - like Rita Katz/SITE. The mainstream media is really ramping up the FEAR lately, with all these Bin Laden, 9/11, "terror plots", and "Al Qaeda" stories. Have you noticed?
WHO unquestioningly runs Rita Katz/SITE's "stories"? THE U.S. MAINSTREAM MEDIA
Who QUESTIONS evidence-free stories like this? NON-CORPORATE MEDIA like ME
It might make your latest incarnation of SITE more believable if the IP address wasn't the same as another MOSSAD asset, MEMRI. See, you both have the same 188.8.131.52 IP address (and the "news" won't point this out):
Rita Katz folds S.I.T.E. Institute and opens SITE Intelligence Group. Can another Bin Laden tape be in the making? Is SITE the ONLY SOURCE for this "news" story?
Notice the image in this alleged hostage story is provided by SITE Intelligence Group - a US Hasbara entity

UPDATE: So........what happened to the "hostage" situation? This is now several days since I posted this, since when does a hostage situation just completely drop out of the news?
Check this out, I highlight excerpts from the article:
The two-minute, 40-second video was posted on jihadist forums by Al-Qaeda's media arm as-Sahab, according to the US-based monitoring service SITE. (so, there's a "JIHADIST FORUM", a place where Jihadist's can get together and meet on the internet, kind of like a dating service)
"We can't even right now say for certain that... it's a credible video of him," State Department deputy spokesman Mark Toner said, adding that experts were trying to determine when the video was taken and whether it was authentic. (if it ISN'T authentic, why isn't Rita Katz thrown in jail? why is the mainstream media blitzing us with "news" that is admittedly not verified?)
Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has demanded that Washington end air strikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen, as well as release the 1993 World Trade Center bombers along with relatives of Osama bin Laden. (notice the WORDSMITH-ing: it doensn't directly say that Ayman al-Zawahiri is IN the video or has anything TO DO with the video OR the demands, they just simply throw that sentence in their IMPLYING he has something to do with this!!!)
Weinstein, 70, suffers from asthma, heart problems and high blood pressure. (if you're 70, have asthma, heart problems, and high blood pressure...I FIND IT HIGHLY UNLIKELY YOU'RE AN "AID WORKER" IN PAKISTAN!!! If this is TRUE, this video, then you DESERVE what happened to you!!!)
The spokesman said the United States believes that Weinstein is "most likely" being held in Pakistan's lawless tribal areas, but cannot confirm it. (NOTHING can be "confirmed", not just THAT!!!)
Congressman Paul Findley's book "They Dare to Speak Out" explains many of these tactics of those who tried to suppress anyone who starts to tell the truth about US disastrous foreign policy in support of Israeli aparthied, occupation, and ethnic cleansing. He also argues that the huge resources they put in this are needed because they are trying to suppress the truth; suppressing the truth needs far more resources and money.
Who says Al Qaeda takes credit for a bombing? Rita Katz. Who gets us bin Laden tapes? Rita Katz. Who gets us prettymuch all information telling us Muslims are bad? Rita Katz? Rita Katz is the Director of Site Intelligence, primary source for intelligence used by news services, Homeland Security, the FBI and CIA. What is her qualification? She served in the Israeli Defense Force. She has a college degree and most investigative journalists believe the Mossad “helps” her with her information. We find no evidence of any qualification whatsoever of any kind. A bartender has more intelligence gathering experience.
Almost simultaneous to Rita Katz’s arrival in the US in 1997, MEMRI (Middle East Media Review Institute was founded in 1998 by Yigal Carmon, a former colonel in Israeli military intelligence, and another Israeli Meyrav Wurmser (yes, the wife of Iraq war perpetrator Wurmser). They translate Hebrew, Arabic, Turkish, and Persian print and video pieces into English and provide major news outlets (that are on their wavelength) free of charge. They promoted “This regime will disappear from the pages of time” as the infamous “Israel must be wiped off the map” (click here to see THAT media propaganda!) (notice “disappear” is intransitive and requires no executioner-bad, but “wipe” is transitive and requires executioner-good, ie Iran) and “We will annihilate the Jews,” for “The Jews are killing us” in a Gaza cartoon educational program (used by Jon Stewart last year as a reason for Is/Pa impasse). They created Al Jazeera, too, and made it the exclusive news outlet for American atrocities in Iraq; remember all Abu Ghraib pictures and tapes, and early OBL tapes, went to Al Jazeera first. Al Jazeera is there to make sure atrocities in the Middle East are not all blamed on Israel:

More "terror" bullshit: 9/11 "mastermind" (I thought it was Bin Laden!!!) trial will not be on TV like the O.J. trial (of course). He was waterboarded 183 times and "confessed" to 9/11. U.S. government and military worry that the massive amount of times they tortured him may come out in the trial:
The former chief US prosecutor at Guantanamo Bay has denounced the military trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks due to appear in court at Guantanamo on Saturday, as intended primarily to prevent the defendants from presenting evidence of torture.

UPDATE - the bullshit is coming too fast to track it...YOUR CIA @ WORK (see: the FAKE TERRORISM youtube playlist in this thread, how the FBI/CIA is ALWAYS connected to these terror "masterminds"):
CIA thwarts new underwear bomb plot against jet
U.S. officials say the Al Qaeda affiliate in Yemen had a new design for the device.
Terror plot foiled: CIA stops al Qaeda plan to bomb U.S. plane on anniversary of bin Laden's death
The bullshit is piled so high, they're referencing PAST FAKE TERRORISM (the "underwear bomber") for PRESENT FAKE TERRORISM (this story has changed at least 3 times already in the mainstream media, like all of these stories, just like 9/11 and the Team 6 stories):
CIA thwarts new underwear bomb plot against jet: U.S. officials say the Al Qaeda affiliate in Yemen had a new design for the device.
(So, let's tally up the points here: I put up this post that this "terror" was bullshit on May 7...and on May 9 it turns out the "underwear-like bomber" was really a CIA agent. Score: Big Dan 1, mainstream media/government liars 0, so far. The U.S. media/radio news briefs/government heads CONTINUE to terrorize us with propaganda! THEY are "the terrorists"!)
It's either a 100% CIA inside terror job - or never happened at all, and they simply went to a bar and wrote a script and fed it to the media who never, ever, ever says: "PROVE IT!" Under US law, the CIA is a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION:
(UPDATE) TOTALLY BULLSHIT - ALLEGED AL QAEDA "BOMBER" WAS ACTUALLY CIA AGENT
