Ha ha ha ha ha!
Another Drudge dud!

Nice try, asshole. The CIA says they can’t authenticate the 'taped threat':

The CIA is unable to authenticate a videotape in which a man claiming to be an al-Qaida terrorist warns of devastating new attacks on the United States, a senior intelligence official told NBC News on Wednesday.

The existence of the tape was first reported Wednesday afternoon by Matt Drudge, who said it was obtained last weekend in Pakistan by ABC News.

Drudge quoted an unidentified “senior ABC News source” as saying the network was “working 24 hours a day trying to authenticate” it. But the senior intelligence official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told NBC News that “we can’t authenticate” the tape.
