US may release bin Laden videotape

United States President George W Bush has indicated that the US may make public a videotape that reportedly proves Saudi extremist Osama bin Laden's guilt in the September 11 terror strikes.

"For those who see the tape, they will realise that not only is he (bin Laden) guilty of incredible murder, he has no conscience and no soul, that he represents the worst of civilization," Bush told reporters on Monday after presiding over the lighting of the holy Jewish lamp at the White House on the occasion of the Hanukkah festival.

This was the first time in the history of the US that the holy Jewish lamp or Menorah, was lighted at the official residence of the US president.

"I couldn't imagine somebody like Osama bin Laden understanding the joy of Hanukkah or the joy of Christmas or celebrating peace and hope. And while we celebrate peace and lightness, I fully understand in order to make sure peace and lightness exists in the future, we must bring him to justice, and we will," Bush said.

Meanwhile, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said, "The president's approach is: wherever it does not compromise security, it's best to share information with the country and with the world."

This is the clearest indication yet that authorities in the US may release the videotape, which reportedly shows bin Laden boasting that he knew of the attack on New York's World Trade Centre and that he had turned on his television to hear news about it.

In the video, bin Laden also says that the resulting destruction was greater than he had anticipated.
