Concerto for blunt instrument

An irregular heartbeat from d.o. to you. Not like a daily kos, more like a sometime sloth. Fast relief from the symptoms of blogarrhea and predicated on the understanding that the world is not a stage for our actions, rather it is a living organism upon which we depend for our existence.

Osama as Emmanuel Goldstein

The first thing that crossed my mind when seeing the alleged new Osama video in last Sunday's Boston Globe (where they had two stills side-by-side, one from a previous recording) was that the faces were not the same. I'm good w/faces, and these two are NOT much alike. There's a bit of chatter on the blogs about the dyed beard, but few are noting the difference in BONE STRUCTURE! Checkout the brow and tip of the nose, and checkout the images below at "What really happened".

Call me a conspiracy nut if you will, but i believe we've long been sleepwalking in an Orwellian la-la land with "Osama" playing the part of Emmanuel Goldstein. That guy Goldstein, you may recall, was the boogieman image Big Brother was forever broadcasting on the omnipresent telescreens (you know, like the ones in America?). As noted in the Wikipedia entry for Goldstein: "It is thought that the opposition to Big Brother—namely, Goldstein—was simply a construction, which ensured that support and devotion towards Big Brother was continuous". Surprize!

The fact that the VAST majority of the U.S. media are swallowing this latest broadcast from Big Brother is disturbing enough, but add to that the fact that the vast majority of the U.S. PUBLIC don't believe their own eyes is downright chilling!
Have you done your Two Minute Hate yet? God Bless Oceania!


Other observations:

The site "What Really Happened" has some excellent comparisons in their feature, Osama bin Laden: The Newest Fake.
