number one enemy is dead. "I can report to the American people
and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation
that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda and a terrorist
who is responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men,
women and children," US President Barack Obama said during
a statement from the White House Sunday evening.
This is actually
the second time a high-ranking official has made such an announcement.
On YouTube, you may find a video available online with over 1.6
million views of Benazir Bhutto explaining to David Frost that Osama
bin Laden was murdered in the early 2000s. We carry it in our video
archive and you can view it here: Benazir
Bhutto: Bin Laden was murdered.
the video caption, the BBC censored the clip, then reinstated it
and claimed they had not censored it after all. The program aired
on 2nd November 2007, before Bhutto was assassinated, and David
Frost the presenter "did not challenge her on her assertion
(at 2:14 on the clip) that Bin Laden was murdered. It would make
sense that the West would cover up such a truth, as Bin Laden was
needed as a "bogeyman" to continue the farcical "War
There are other
reports that bin Laden died of kidney failure even earlier than
Bhutto claimed. But he has probably been dead for years. Apparently
the last confirmable sightings of bin Laden came when he was traveling
around Los Angeles back in the 1990s under the name "Tim Osman."
He was meeting with his CIA handlers presumably. Later on he would
show up in France (just before 9/11) for kidney treatment. He had
He went to
Afghanistan and from a cave full of the latest technology he launched
an attack on America. But he denied he had anything to do with the
attack. The Taliban offered to turn him over if the Bush Administration
could prove his involvement. The Bush administration declined and
then invaded. To this day the FBI does not list bin Laden as "most
wanted" for the 9/11 attacks. Now presumably they will delist
the 2000s presumably phony videos were released of bin Laden. They
were static, videos with only live audio and consisted of badly
taped announcements playing over the face of bin Laden. Recently
bin Laden's son looked at the video tapes from around the time of
the 9/11 attacks and proclaimed that he was not sure they contained
images of his father. So even the initial pre- and post-9/11 images
of bin Laden are in question.
Of course the
questions go back to the al-Qaeda fighters that the CIA helped train
and fund to fight the Russians in the 1980s. Al-Qaeda means "list"
and a conspiratorial interpretation of the al-Qaeda menace would
include a perspective that a CIA patsy bin Laden had
been set up to lead a CIA funded "list" of Islamic fundamentalist
youth. In other words al-Qaeda comprised an American intel operation.
what has begun to turn into World War III (see other Bell story
today UN Strong-Arming Little Sri Lanka Is World's Biggest
Untold Story?). Who knows why the American administration chose
to make this presumably phony announcement now. They just released
President Obama's possibly phony "original" birth record,
so prospective CIA counterfeiters may be having a busy week. Perhaps
the war in Afghanistan is going so badly that by announcing the
"death" of bin Laden, the Pentagon can pave the way for
a graceful exit before the Taliban blows up even more NATO brass
with its adolescent suicide bombers.
this is some sort of "kiss-and-make-up" joint venture
between the Pakistan ISI and the US CIA. The two intelligence agencies
have been feuding lately and a wonderful (phony) victory over bin
Laden might be a way of clearing the air. Presumably the ISI shall
"confirm" bin Laden's death.
Could it be
that such events are portents of more ominous events yet to come?
One would be more comforted if the US had paraded bin Laden's body
before the cameras and brought him back to the US for forensic testing.
Instead this is what they did according to Canadian Broadcasting
(CBC) article: "U.S. personnel took bin Laden's remains, which
were buried at sea, a U.S. official said. Finding a country willing
to accept the body for burial within 24 hours, in keeping with Islamic
tradition, would have been difficult, the official said."
This is what
the US did with the world's most wanted terrorist. They dropped
him into the sea? The phony pictures of gruesomeness will likely
come later. And what has been the public reaction? According to
the CBC article we quote (above) "As news of bin Laden's death
spread, crowds also began to gather outside the White House. After
Obama confirmed the death, the crowd burst into chants of 'U.S.A.'"
More from the
CBC article (as good as any other on this matter): "George
W. Bush, who was president when al-Qaeda attacked the U.S., said
the fight against terror continues 'but tonight America has sent
an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will
B.C., Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was quoted by the CBC
as saying the death of bin Laden "secures a measure of justice
for those Canadians and the their families ... bin Laden's death
does not end the threat of international terrorism. Sadly, others
will take his place."
have likely been taking bin Laden's place for a long time.
