NBC reports out Drudge's 'terror tape' mumbojumbo
and adds some helpful debunking details ...
U.S. officials told NBC News that the tape included now-standard militant Islamist rhetoric promising widespread destruction inside the United States. The man cannot be identified, the officials said, because his face is covered by a headdress.
The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said ABC gave the CIA a complete copy of the tape Monday. They described analystsâ concern as âlowâ because it is not clear that the tape was recorded recently and because the man on the tape, who speaks in what appears to be an American accent, mentions no details.
âItâs unclear what this tape is â even whether the person on the tape is an American,â one of the officials said.
