|The Death of Osama Bin Laden: Photo Gallery|
"Bin Laden Tape" is a heavily searched topic following a report from The New York Times that said U.S. officials have reason to believe that Osama Bin Laden may have ordered a pre-recorded tape to be released in the event of his death. Authorities believe that Bin Laden made a propaganda recording shortly before he was killed. The tape, which could be an audio or a video recording, is expected to be released by his al Qaeda disciples soon. Media outlets and the U.S. government will have to weigh the consequences of airing the tape if it does surface, as it could possibly boost his legacy as a martyr within the terrorist community.
