US officials are reacting skeptically to a report on an Afghan news site about a new video that supposedly shows Osama bin Laden.

The story, dated Tuesday, describes a new 30-minute tape with a
message from a Taliban commander (Mullah Dodallah) and the al-Qaida
leader.

A U-S counterterrorism official says the government can't confirm the tape's existence, but says officials are aware of the media report. U-S authorities are viewing it skeptically.

Bin Laden has not been heard from since a December 2004 audio statement. That is the longest stretch the terror leader has been publicly quiet since the attacks of September eleventh, 2001.
