    ABCNEWS HOLDS TERROR WARNING TAPE

    **Exclusive**

    In the last week before the election, ABCNEWS is holding a videotaped message from a purported al Qaeda terrorist warning of a new attack on America, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

    The terrorist claims on tape the next attack will dwarf 9/11. "The streets will run with blood," and "America will mourn in silence" because they will be unable to count the number of the dead. Further claims: America has brought this on itself for electing George Bush who has made war on Islam by destroying the Taliban and making war on Al Qaeda.

    ABCNEWS strongly denies holding the tape back from broadcast over political concerns during the last days of the election.

    The CIA is analyzing the tape, a top federal source tells the DRUDGE REPORT.

    ABCNEWS obtained the tape from a source in Waziristan, Pakistan over the weekend, sources tells DRUDGE.

    "We have been working 24 hours a day trying to authenticate [the tape]," a senior ABCNEWS source said Wednesday morning.

    The terrorist's face is concealed by a head dress, and he speaks in an American accent, making it difficult to identify the individual.

    US intelligence officials believe the man on tape may be Adam Gadhan - aka Adam Pearlman, a 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.

    According to the FBI, Gadahn, 25, attended al-Qaida training camps and served as an al-Qaida translator.

    The disturbing tape runs an hour -- the man simply identifies himself as 'Assam the American.'

    I see that the tape's in the hands of the FBI. I wonder if ABC was told not to air it, or if they chose not to:

    Not an easy decision to make. Very likely that it's just crying fire in a theater--it's easy to make a tape--or just another threat, but it could be a real warning. On the other hand, if there was a specific threat, would they announce it? No one made a pubic announcement such as this just before 9-11. Why would they issue a warning when they need stealth and surprise?

    Sounds more like an attempt to stir things up prior to the election, though I'm not sure what they would hope to accomplish.

    This is a Pro Bush ad. Osama's bunch wants Bush in office. They know that the "Bush destroyed the Talaban" and "making war on Al Qaeda" garbage will go down well with the majority of Americans who are dumb enough to fall for this crap. Translation should be: "Keep electing dumb presidents who fall for every trap we set for them."
    OR
    If it's fake, it's from the Bush camp. They both share a common goal: Keep the idiot where he is.

    CBS doesn't fact check: bad.

    ABC fact checks: bad.

    Drudge? Fact check? Fat chance!

    What amazes me is the amount of "press" this has gotten.

    From what I have read the tape is of a single person saying "we will destroy the U.S.".

    Let's assume this IS an authentic tape, and this IS an authentic terrorist. Given the tape doesn't mention any specifics, why should it be shown and reported on?

    This is a sad day in American when a terorist with a video camera can cause so much fear in the U.S.

    I assume Israel probably sees tapes like this every day.

    something to consider: this would be a new,
    every attack always featured UBL giving the warning . not some gruop
    or spokesman.

    Turns out this tape is several months old.

    Besides, does it contain any threat we haven't already heard? There are people who want to attack the US. This is news?
