So who did they pay to get them. Could CNN money be going to fund terrorists? That would be just like them to pay terrorist to get tapes that do nothing but provide more terror for the US. Way to go CNN. I hope an investigation is started right away! I'm not holding my breath.

If you watched CNN yesterday, you would have seen about them explaining that.

Why did you even post a reply? Not very helpful... perhaps you could paraphrase their explanation?

I guess I don't watch CNN, so I wouldn't be able to see any half assed explainations they might have.

You have access to the internet don't you? Look it up at CNN.com and by the way CNN said they didn't pay a big price. "CNN Senior International Correspondent Nic Robertson obtained the tapes from a source in Afghanistan, following a 17-hour drive from Kabul through treacherous terrain to a remote part of the war-torn country. According to the source, the tapes had been found in an Afghan house where bin Laden had stayed."

Sorry, I don't frequent cnn.com either. I will not provide them with any revenue what so ever.

It seems I'm not the only one with questions about this tape payment: [url]http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,60922,00.html[/url]

CNN anchor Aaron Brown said Tuesday night that the network paid about $30,000.

That sounds to me like funding terrorists. I hope the FBI breaks one off in their ass.

$30,000?!? That wouldn't pay for, say, flight school. Or a couple hundred AK's. Or [fill in blank with $30,000 worth of terrorist equipment]. I hope they're damn sure about where that money went.
