White House says cannot confirm Bin Laden tape authenticity
A White House top adviser said he could not confirm the authenticity of an audiotape purported to be Osama bin Laden.
A White House top adviser said on Sunday he could not confirm the authenticity of an audiotape purported to be Osama bin Laden claiming responsibility for the Dec. 25 attempted bombing of a U.S.-bound plane.
"I can't confirm that (al Qaeda's responsibility for the attack) nor can we confirm the authenticity of the tape, but assuming that it is him, his message contains the same hollow justifications for the mass slaughter of innocents that we've heard before," David Axelrod said on CNN's "State of the Union" program.
