“I just returned from the border with shocking new video—video that will outrage you,” James O’Keefe III writes. “I dressed up like Osama bin Laden and crossed the Rio Grande river from Mexico to the United States.”

Yes, he dressed up the guy that was killed on Obama’s watch.

Gawker reports:

His guide through the complexities of border politics and international security is Hudspeth County, Texas, Sheriff Arvin West.

Oh, by the way, here’s an AP photo of U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers standing watch roughly three feet to the left of that “insecure” border spot where O’Keefe and West filmed their segment.

It gets better.

Here are some fun facts you may not learn about West from O’Keefe’s fawning video treatment: The sheriff is famous for arresting celebrities, from Willie Nelson to Fiona Apple, whose pot-filled tour buses use the nearby stretch of Interstate 10; he’s been found guilty of illegally arresting an El Paso police officer and violating his civil rights; and he has a reputation for being a right-wing and anti-immigrant media hound who calls President Obama “full of shit.”

Since 2005, West has gotten so much money for border protection that he’s hired five new deputies and cut crime in half. But EVIL illegals and the DRUG CARTELS who run them are ready to DO MURDER any day now, West says. “[S]ome question whether his other salty tales are based firmly in reality or instead are constructed to drive millions in state and federal money to his department’s coffers,” the Texas Tribune has reported.

There is no real video footage, or even Breitbarted footage, showing O’Laden crossing the well-patrolled road that runs parallel to the river, or even the canals, or farmland, but there is a link for donations:

To complete this investigation, Project Veritas spent over $74,242 in legal fees, investigators salaries, and travel expenses.

We are now BEHIND in our 2014 election investigations. Please help me replace these funds. Our entire 2014 election plan depends on it.

Watch Osama bin Keefe in action:

There’s a funny back-and-forth on Twitter via Gawker after O’Breitbart Laden became upset over the article. I wrote something on O’Keefe once and he called me a fascist. He’s a very sensitive little feller.

    These idiot wing-nuts would fail at making their version of a Jack-Ass movie. Come to think of it, they’d offend those who actually perform in them.

      Any time one of them opens their mouth… I can’t help but think to myself…. JACKASS!!

    Jame OKeefe .You might not know this ? As with any thing and everything
    today some people might not believe that Bin Laden is dead Just
    because someone else said its NOT SO If you really did what you have
    claimed to have done I don’t think you truly understand the danger you
    put your self in. You are lucky you didn’t end up in someones cross

    Now if OKeefe was dressed as Trayvon Martin, Sheriff West would have shot him with his gun instead of his camera.

    O’Keefe dressed up as bin Laden because his usual Joker costume was at the cleaners.

    If he were actually dressed as Osama Bin Laden he would appear as a decomposed, bullet ridden waterlogged corpse.

    Of course he didn’t, and I am almost positive that was NOT the border, just some backwater place dressed up by to look like it. There are a zillion places in Texas that look just like that.

    Too bad they didn’t shoot him….now THAT would have been funny.

    • Dwendt44 August 12th, 2014 at 6:54 pm

      In the unlikely even O’Keefe actually was crossing the border, he could have been shot; a Muslim terrorist or even OBL are subject to ‘shoot on sight’ rules.

    This outfit was almost as convincing as the pimp outfit that O ‘ Keefe wore in his sting operation in attempt to catch ACORN doing something nefarious.

    • BonniefromChi August 12th, 2014 at 6:46 pm

      Think this is him. 😉

  9. JamesMMartin August 12th, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    Actually, the Mexicans thought he had on his Hallowe’en costume a little early this year and the feds can’t be everywhere. Due to past experience, I think this faux journalist probably had inside information on where he could shoot his sappy film.

  10. ChrisVosburg August 12th, 2014 at 11:29 pm

    It’s worth pointing out that first, he does not cross the border when he wades across the Rio Bravo. Second, that which he describes as a “border fence” is simply a fence on a bridge over a drainage canal to prevent pedestrian traffic from mishap.

    Third, despite having been doing this for years, he still has absolutely no talent for blocking or direction. I’d love to see the expense sheet describing how he spent 75 large to shoot this piece of shit home video, pretty sure it’s along the lines of 5 grand to travel and shoot, 70 grand for talent (himself).

    Wonder what he will do when he grows up. Oh wait, guess this is it.
