In September a video was released showing Osama Bin Laden making a speech celebrating the 6th anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Centre.

Shortly after the video was aired this network was shutdown, and America lost a valuable entry point into the heart of the Al Qaeda organisation. You can read more about this slip, here.
