CIA Verifies Bin Laden Deputy's Voice
Associated Press
Friday, September 12, 2003; Page A23

The CIA has authenticated a section of the audio on the new al Qaeda videotape as an actual recording of Osama bin Laden's chief deputy, but analysts are unsure whether the voice purported to be bin Laden himself is truly him, a CIA official said yesterday.

The videotape, aired Wednesday on the Arab al-Jazeera television network, has two voiceovers, one purportedly from bin Laden and the other from his deputy, Ayman Zawahiri. A CIA official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said agency analysts have determined that Zawahiri's voice is authentic.

But the technical analysis of the section with bin Laden's voice is inconclusive, the official said. The analysis will continue, but the official acknowledged the CIA may not be able to make a final determination.
