Tupac Or Milli Vanilli?

The headline is Bin Laden prods US to end ‘hopeless’ Afghan war. This headline alone is possibly enough to turn me right back into an Afghanistan hawk and fully repudiate my earlier remarks on the subject. That’s just the kind of wacky guy I am. It’s an about-face about “face”.
Of course, that all presumes I truly believe that the voice on this “tape” is that of Osama bin Laden. Everyone else seems to. The News seems to. The Government is silent so we presume they don’t dispute it. As a result, every time “Osama bin Laden” “releases an audiotape” everyone takes it for granted that the person talking on the tape is indeed Osama bin Laden.
I wonder why we’re all so sure?
