"Tantalizing but untrue. The back story is revealing about the tragic ways in which the public is jerked around: manipulated and lied to both by the government and by irresponsible critics of the government who benefit from selling fear and scandal. ** The kerfuffle over Osama’s body got impetus recently when the website WikiLeaks began publishing a vast trove of e-mails from the private US security company Stratfor.
They had been obtained by the hacker collective Anonymous and its splinter group Lulzsec. Quite a few of the e-mails are interesting, but one set stood out. They were from the day after the US raid on a Pakistani compound where, we are told, Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden, then flew his body to a ship, whence it was dumped in the ocean.
Long dead patsy still comes up trumps for establishment

The Obama 2012 campaign has launched it’s reelection campaign by drawing on the mythical version of events played out last year following the supposed assassination of Osama Bin Laden.
The campaign will release a 17 minute video later this week, narrated by hollywood actor Tom Hanks, as an opening salvo in the struggle to win a second term for the president.
An action movie-style teaser clip released yesterday solely highlights the so called Bin Laden raid and features vice president Joe Biden and former president Bill Clinton talking up the event.
“He took the harder and more honorable path,” Clinton says, adding “When I saw what had happened I thought to myself, I hope that’s the call I would’ve made”.
Hindu activists protested the production on Friday of "Zero Dark Thirty", Kathryn Bigelow's upcoming film about the alleged killing of Osama bin Laden. AFP reports that members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, or VHP, disrupted shooting in the north India city of Chandigarh and demanded that any representations of Pakistan on Indian soil be taken down.
"Just when you thought the government couldn’t ruin the First Amendment any further: The House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday that outlaws protests in instances where some government officials are nearby, whether or not you even know it. The US House of Representatives voted 388-to-3 in favor of H.R. 347 late Monday, a bill which is being dubbed the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011. In the bill, Congress officially makes it illegal to trespass on the grounds of the White House, which, on the surface, seems not just harmless and necessary, but somewhat shocking that such a rule isn’t already on the books. The wording in the bill, however, extends to allow the government to go after much more than tourists that transverse the wrought iron White House fence. Under the act, the government is also given the power to bring charges against Americans engaged in political protest anywhere in the country".

WASHINGTON — "Millions of dollars in White House money has helped pay for New York Police Department programs that put entire American Muslim neighborhoods under surveillance.

Welcome to "They Think You're Stupid", where tried and true ad hominum's and other soft ball fallacies used since the stone age are used and abused to peddle the unreality of the continuing and impossible offical 9/11 conspiracy.
Todays's edition comes to us via the Huffington Post which reads more and more like a State Department Propaganda outlet each day. It seems Pakistan is dismantling Osama bin Laden's compound where he's been hiding and playing video games and watching Alf reruns since his days of defeating the strongest military in the history of the planet.
Lowlights from the article. (my comments in parenthesis).
From NY Times …there have been a million or so visitors to the memorial since it opened last September, and there have been no suicide attempts. Nonetheless, the police said a plan had been put in place. “We have to think of these possibilities,” Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said in an interview with Esquire magazine. “People might commit suicide. We’re concerned about the possibility of somebody jumping in.” ………. “Our big worry several years ago, in the original design, was terrorism, and now we add suicide to the equation,” said Glenn P. Corbett, an associate professor of fire science at John Jay College, who is advising the Skyscraper Safety Campaign in its criticism of the memorial as inadequately safe and secure. “I think it’s going to happen — a suicide. I think it is an unbelievably emotional site.”
On the February 13 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex talks with film, television, stage, and voice actor and former president of the Screen Actors Guild, Ed Asner. Mr. Asner will play the chairman of a new investigation of the September 11th attacks in the film "A Violation of Trust," formerly "Confessions of a 9/11 Conspirator." The film will pit the 9/11 Commission Report and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) reports against the work of 9/11 researcher Dr. David Ray Griffin and the scientific research highlighted by leading 9/11 truth organizations, including Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

A startling number of healthy, young New York City cops who responded to the 9/11 terror attacks have since been diagnosed with cancer, according to data obtained by the New York Post.
The statistics, which show nearly a tripling in the number of cops applying for cancer-related disability pensions post-9/11, are the first of their kind to become public and confirm the fears of at least 12,000 police officers who toiled amid the rubble at the toxic World Trade Center site.
There are 297 cops who were diagnosed with cancer after working at Ground Zero -- and the average age was a shocking 44 at the time of diagnosis, according to the data from the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association (PBA

"Initially, the Justice Department had argued that all 52 records of bin Laden were exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. However, in their response brief filed on Wednesday, Metcalfe says DOJ raised the possibility that portions of images or video of the Al Qaeda leader could be disclosed without "core" harm to national security. The passage in question (page 10) raises the possibility that "sensitive information about specific intelligence methods or specific military operations could be redacted from the records."
from the article
"Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is acknowledging publicly for the first time that a Pakistani doctor provided key information to the U.S. in advance of the successful Navy SEAL assault on Osama bin Laden's compound last May. Panetta told CBS's "60 Minutes," in a profile to be broadcast on Sunday, that Shakil Afridi helped provide intelligence for the raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan".
From Corbett Report Radio: In the run-up to 9/11, a little-known military intelligence unit was tracking the movements and actions of Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden. In late 2000, the military brass called off that work, and later the DoD lied to Congress about the unit and its work. As James says, get your pen and paper in hand, you might want to take notes on this one.

On July 18, 2003, British biowarfare expert and UN weapons inspector David Kelly was found dead on Harrowdown Hill, near his home in Oxfordshire. Ruled a suicide by the official judicial inquiry chaired by Lord Hutton, now a group of British doctors is challenging the Attorney General's decision not to hold a coroner's inquest into the death, citing the overlooked, suppressed and modified evidence suggesting Dr. Kelly was murdered. This is the GRTV Backgrounder on The Death of Dr. David Kelly.

Appearing on the Alex Jones Show today, Michigan attorney Kurt Haskell said he plans to file a civil lawsuit against the government in the underwear bomber case now that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has suddenly reversed course and decided to plead guilty.
“Abdulmutallab’s reversal now means that Detroit Attorney Kurt Haskell’s contention that the plot was, as in almost every other terror case made public, a product of government entrapment, and that the US intelligence establishment was involved in the aborted attack, will now remain buried, at least for the time being,” Paul Joseph Watson wrote earlier today as news of the reversal was reported.
Abdulmutallab entered a plea of not guilty eight months ago at the start of his trial on charges he attempted to use of a weapon of mass destruction, conspired to commit an act of terrorism and attempted murder.
Al Jazeera's Abderrahim Foukara asks the former US defense secretary whether he made adequate preparations to avoid the thousands of lives lost in Iraq.
Foukara attempted to ask his question again. He wondered if Rumsfeld felt responsibility felt responsibility for "tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis killed by the coalition," as well as by the "criminals" who Rumsfeld had blamed for much of the violence in the country. Rumsfeld didn't even attempt to answer the question. He accused Foukara of asking him "pejorative" questions, and told him he though it was in his "being" and "nature" to be disrespectful."
"This is not about me," Foukara said. "If you want to attack me personally, fine, but give me the answer to the question."
11 paragraphs into this story this pops out. ... The operation that killed al-Awlaki was run by the U.S. military's elite counter terrorism unit, the Joint Special Operations Command – the same unit that got bin Laden.
Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has been stripped of legal immunity for acts of torture against US citizens authorized while he was in office. The 7th Circuit made the ruling in the case of two American contractors who were tortured by the US military in Iraq after uncovering a smuggling ring within an Iraqi security company. The company was under contract to the Department of Defense. The company was assisting Iraqi insurgent groups in the “mass acquisition” of American weapons. The ruling comes as Rumsfeld begins his book tour with a visit to Boston on Monday, September 26, and as new, uncensored photos of Abu Ghraib spark fresh outrage across Internet. Awareness is growing that Bush-era crimes went far beyond mere waterboarding.
"I was in the second week of Army basic training on 9/11. When my training platoon was called into formation and given the news, all of us were stunned. None of us had expected to fight a real war. It was college money and job skills that had called us into the armed forces, but in the space of a single morning, we had become the last generation of peacetime recruits".
Some actions speak louder then anniversary's.

“Ayo, I’m American born. Love America. Love my people. Love all mankind, all nationalities. You know, I think it’s just been recent where everybody started to feel like there was an elite group that runs everything, and everybody else was sheep, ignorant, making all ethnicities, colors, and creeds niggers, blind to what really is going on. So I say take off the wool from your eyes. Out with the Old America, in with the New. End all racism, all injustice, all oppression to poor people, any people anywhere in this planet. Let’s come together. A new day is rising.” – Nas, from his song, “We’re Not Alone.”

"It's really good to be here as when I last won 10 years ago on September 11 I was in DC watching the Pentagon burn from my hotel room," she told the audience at the awards ceremony in the Grosvenor House hotel in central London.
PJ Harvey on Tuesday night became the first artist to win the Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize twice, after first winning it the day of the 9/11 attacks a decade ago.
"A ranking Republican Senator has written to the Justice Department demanding to know why it quickly retracted court papers that called into serious question a key pillar of the criminal case against Bruce Ivins, the FBI’s prime suspect in the 2001 anthrax mail attacks.
Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa, who has long questioned the legitimacy of the FBI’s findings in the case, wrote Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Robert Mueller this week, regarding a filing by Justice Department civil lawyers in July that noted that the Army’s biodefense center at Fort Detrick, Md., “did not have the specialized equipment in a containment laboratory that would be required to prepare the dried spore preparations that were used in the letters.”
In other words, the filing noted that Ivins’ lab, often referred to as the “hot suite”, did not contain the equipment needed to turn liquid anthrax into the refined powder that ended up being mailed to members of the Senate and reporters in the fall of 2001".
Islamic Republic News Agency : “9/11 was a state-sponsored inside job, likely involving the CIA, Pentagon and Israel's Mossad..
London, Sep 5, IRNA – American author and blogger Stephen Lendman says that the events of 9/11 was a “state-sponsored inside job” that drastically changed the world for the worse.
“Post-9/11, the world changed dramatically because of how the Bush administration used that event to wage war on humanity,” Lendman said.
“Included was attacking Afghanistan and Iraq, neither country having anything to do with the attack and Washington, of course, knew it,” he told IRNA ahead of the 10th anniversary of the 8/11 attacks in the US.
The atrocity, was used to “wage war on Islam, vilifying and persecuting Muslims for political advantage,” said the author, who has written extensively about dozens of falsely accused and imprisoned victims. All of whom, he says are “entirely innocent of all charges.”
In an interview with IRNA, he said that the events were also used domestically by the US to impose “a series of repressive police state laws, presidential directives and other measures.
The measures also included “illegal surveillance and much more, making America no fit place to live in. Under Obama, it's even worse,” Lendman said.

Have we already forgotten?
That was the first question that went through my mind after hearing the news that NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg had banned faith leaders from the upcoming 9/11 ceremony. Bloomberg has, over recent years, been decisively indecisive on the role of faith at this tragic site. He defended the display of the 20 foot tall cross standing in the midst of the debris of the Twin Towers. He also defended the right of the building of the mosque near Ground Zero. But, for this pivotal meeting, Bloomberg came up short.
For the tenth anniversary ceremony of this great national tragedy: A gaggle of politicians are welcome; but faith leaders are not. Bloomberg’s office defends this by saying that the focus this year will be on the families of the victims.
CIA gets 200 pages of suggested cuts in “The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against Al Qaeda
One former FBI agent is finding out firsthand that freedom of speech isn’t something guaranteed to every American. Colleagues at the CIA are keeping him from printing some of his own personal accounts in an upcoming book about the 9/11 attacks.
In his upcoming book “The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against Al Qaeda,” Ali H. Soufan wants to write that the Central Intelligence Agency could have had a chance at keeping the September 11 terror attacks from happening. Soufan says that the CIA knew about two of the hijackers involved in the al-Qaeda plot, and while that information might have been of great interest to the FBI, the Central Intelligence Agency withheld the crucial information.
Specifically, Soufan says that the CIA had detailed information on 9/11 hijacker Abu Zubaydah as early as January 2000 but neglected to act on it.
