FROM DU: So, How’s About We Make Our Very Own “Bin Laden” Video?
Why? As counterpropaganda which, if well done, could permanently spike the use of this particular psyops technique by bad guys in our government and maybe bad guys elsewhere, or at the very least those operations featuring OBL.
How? We might consider using the most recent OBL video as a template, with its ever so convenient still sections where the contemporary references were inserted. We could write up a nice speech by OBL thanking Bush for his astonishing generosity in providing so many useful pictures of broken, burned, maimed and tortured Muslim bodies for Al Qaeda recruiting videos. Maybe throw in a reference to the CIA interception of the communication in which Al Qaeda expresses worries that the US might withdraw from Iraq before they get a good chance to get the Iraqi resistance on their side. You know, the crap the neocons are pulling on us with their videos, only in reverse.
We then have to find people to do the translation into Arabic, people who can pinpoint Arabic phonemes, and people who could do the voice morphing. Slampoet has posted in my original thread that voice morphing programs are available for personal computers (news to me), and that gave me the idea in the first place. (He seems to know a lot about audio, and mentioned not being able to afford to donate to DU, so maybe he could use a paid job on the project.)
(Link to slampoet has been deleted.)
For the Arabic translation and phonemes part, we might start off by contacting Kevin Barrett, a well-known 9-11 Truth Movement activist whose article I quoted above. He has actually translated OBL speeches before. I’m on his email list, and could ask him. We could put out a call for others with these skills as well.
If we wanted to get beyond the YouTube level, we could make it more of a documentary, containing interviews with the people who did the work about voice morphing and psyops. It might be also be interesting to add interviews with heavyweights like William Arkin and Bruce Lawrence if they had time for the likes of us.
What about funding? An obvious thing to do would be to start a bank account specifically for the project, with some kind of legal charter. It would of course specify where the money should go if the project fell through—I’d suggest NGOs helping Iraqi civilians and Katrina victims. Alternatively, maybe one of the more well-known documentary makers or media reform organizations might want to back it or use the idea themselves.
So, whaddya think? I’ve posted a poll to gauge response: (eridani)
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x1789240I don't care that dozens didn't bother to cast a vote in this miserable little 'poll' before they commented. I don't care that a few disagreed with this approach. I don't care that some joked and aped Sgt. Shultz--or whomever... I care that these thoroughly ATROCIOUS Americans would even THINK to do something this repulsive.
Oh sure, these crapulent little traitors gave a whole dog's breakfast of justifications for this nauseating project, but it's all damned nonsense. Can you imagine the residents of the Lodz ghetto dressing as chefs over an 'oven', the townspeople of Nanking joking about rape and aping that behavior, or the survivors of Bataan singing 'Whistle While You Work', as they contemplate their forced trek and labor camps?
It's bad enough to think these Demmie Leftists would do something as awful as make these 'fake' videos, but to make them in order to hurt OUR government--their own country--leaves NO doubt about their true intentions and feeling toward this America they say they 'love so much'.
This is nothing but despicable. Anyone involved in the making of this video, or any others like it, ought to be arrested and shot, as befits all traitors in time of war. This made me absolutely sick to my stomach!
