Osama: The Extended Director's Cut

Wouldn't you know it? We only got to see the tame parts of the latest release from our old friend Osama bin Laden. Apparently, there was a bunch of stuff on the tape that someone didn't want us to see!
Officials said that in the 18-minute long tape — of which only six minutes were aired on the al-Jazeera Arab television network in the Middle East on Friday — bin Laden bemoans the recent democratic elections in Afghanistan and the lack of violence involved with it.

On the tape, bin Laden also says his terror organization has been hurt by the U.S. military's unrelenting manhunt for him and his cohorts on the Afghan-Pakistani border.

A portion of the left-out footage includes a tirade aimed at President Bush and his father, former President George H.W. Bush, claiming the war in Iraq is purely over oil.

The tape also sparked some concern that an attack aimed at disrupting Tuesday's election may be planned.

Very crafty of them, knowing that we'll shell out the $39.95 later in the year for all the cut footage and documentaries on the making of the film. Damn that Peter Jackson! Damn him!

Wait. That's a fantasy film. In this one, our enemy says that Bush has been successful in Afghanistan, is hunting down and killing his buddies, parrots lines from Michael Moore's latest film and says that we're basically kicking his ass all over the Middle East and Central Asia.

This isn't fantasy! This is a reality show! No wonder the MSM don't want us to see it!
