After numerous rounds of "We don't know if Osama is still alive," Osama himself decided to send Ted Kennedy a letter in his own handwriting to let him know he was still in the game.Kennedy opened the letter and it appeared to contain a single line of coded message: 370HSSV-0773H.Kennedy was baffled, so he e-mailed it to John Kerry. Kerry and his aides had no clue either, so they sent it to the FBI.No one could solve it at the FBI so it went to the CIA, then to the NSA.With no clue as to its meaning, the FBI finally asked Army Intelligence for help.Within a minute Army Intelligence cabled back with this reply: "Tell the FBI thatKennedy is holding the message upside down."
While funny, this article is false because:1. Ted Kennedy is drunk so often that he can read upside down message.2. Arabic should be read the other direction. Therefore the message is from Al Gore, not al-Qaida.
