Taiwanese newspaper publisher Next Daily posted a great video of Steve Jobs becoming a ninja and attacking airport security. What is the truth about the Apple CEO's martial arts skills, and why aren't U.S. media investigating? A conspiracy, perhaps?

Reports of Jobs trying to sneak throwing stars past airport security originated with a Japanese magazine and have now spread, via Next, to elsewhere in East Asia. You can watch the company's recreation of the "Jobs as ninja" scenario above.

In the meantime, ask yourself why this news didn't break in Jobs' home country. Tech writer John Moltz has put forward an explanation, for those brave enough to accept it: " Just as reporters in the 1930s helped cover up Roosevelt's illness and in the 1960′s helped cover up Kennedy's philandering, we in the Apple press community help cover up the fact that Jobs is a ninja. We've been doing it for years." Obviously.
