Terror mastermind Osama bin Laden plans a new video to be released in the coming days ahead of the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, his first new message in more than a year, al-Qaida's media arm announced Thursday. The announcement appeared on an Islamic militant Web site, showing a still photo from the video showing of bin Laden addressing the camera, his pointed finger raised upward. His beard, which in previous messages had been streaked with gray, was entirely dark. "Soon, God willing, a videotape from the lion sheik Osama bin Laden, God preserve him," the banner advertisement read, signed by Al-Sahab, the terror network's media arm. Al-Sahab usually puts out such announcements one to three days before the video is posted on the Web. If the message is actually a video of bin Laden, it would be the first new footage of him since a video released on Oct. 29, 2004, just before the US presidential elections, in which bin Laden said America could avoid another 9-11 style attack if it stopped threatening Muslims.
