Osama Bin-Laden's Sleeper's Handbook


Osama Bin-Laden's Sleeper's Handbook


Osama Bin-Laden's Sleeper's Handbook [website, National Lampoon, 2001] A satiric website with purported advice for Al Qaeda's undercover agents in the United States warns about the perils of North American popular culture; appropriate behavior at football games, proper attire, even musical trends: "Boy Bands are in. Use this information to fuel your revolutionary fervor." Among recommendations for tactics, counterintelligence and information gathering: "Recent experience proves that flight schools are all too happy to teach pilots how to fly horizontally only."

Warning, this is satire and may be offensive to some audiences.
