Logo of the month award - September

It was the mother lode, having scoured the world wide internet in search of educational imagery, imagine my dismay on receiving this message:

"images are protected by copyright. Please contact Media and Corporate Communications on 0845 045 45 45 if you wish to use any of the images displayed on this site."

As I have no wish to distract the jolly jack tars battling the all new category of underwater terror, you must click on the 'internet hyperlink' here to see this month's winner in all its glory.
The text has surprisingly little useful information, but these lines are solid gold:
"Whilst it is almost impossible to say with any certainty what a terrorist might look like, an individual’s activity or behaviour can become suspicious in the context of the location they are in. "

"
Members can report unusual activity through a central telephone number and website link. They may be sent urgent updates or contacted during times of heightened risk and may be given a specific mission regarding an individual, group or vessel causing suspicion."
Sieg Heil Salute the salty old sea dogs as they build Gordon's great 'Snitch Society'. We shall soon enjoy the comfort and security that was the hallmark of the Deutsche Demokratische Republik.

"Kraken is the definite article form of krake, a Scandinavian word designating an unhealthy animal, or something twisted.[1]"

Experience has shown that they are likely to dress smartly, often wearing suits and smart-casual attire, to lend an air of respectability and avoid the glare of unnecessary suspicion. Their activities might include being President, or Prime Minister, politician, or high-ranking business executive.

No antagonist, it's the other kind, the ones you can spot by their crafty false beard (© 'Frank' Gardner of the BBC) and film crew.

Further helpful info from 'Frank':

Osama Bin Laden is a tall, distinctive-looking man, and it is highly unlikely he would be able to pass unnoticed in urban areas such as a crowded bazaar in Karachi.

So spotting him on the solent shouldn't be too hard (as long as he's wearing his false beard).

No, no, no. The latest is that the BEARD is REAL but the VIDEO is FAKE.

So, we're left with a fake video featuring a real beard. And that, my fellow Conspiraloon™ is, er, 'reality'.

I submit this for consideration as logo of the month next time around.

Re: Fake Beard vs Fake Video:

We've learned over the years, have we not, that it is very bad to impugn the victims of terror? So let me make it clear that I don't think 'Frank' is getting pushed around by anyone.

Ex investment banker turned terrorist expert 'Frank' must have his own,very good, reasons to focus on the 'beard angle' over the frankly far more baffling freeze framing of the 'contemporary' section of the hit new video.

No doubt, one day he'll tell us them.

Possibly the arab pimpernel froze that section lest his audience be distracted from the message by his lips/head/eyes moving?
Maybe he had to shed his itchy false beard?
May be he was paralysed by an acute allergic shock to his hair dye/fake beard glue?

There are literally thousands of explanations 'Frank' could explore before addressing it's dubious genesis.
