Bin Laden watches self on TV 

If you haven't seen it already, this video released by the Pentagon of Osama bin Laden watching himself on television is pretty remarkable. Instead of being dressed in one of his white robes looking refreshed with his beared black, bin Laden has a grey beard, is huddled over wrapped in a blanket wearing a knit cap. He resembles the type of character you'd see walking around New York's Port Authority Bus Terminal. It does suggest how image conscious bin Laden was, and how obsessed he was with the publicity that came with terrorism.
