Osama increased to 50 Million

This is short. It seems the reward has been increased to fifty million for the capture of Osama.
Which leads me to this question. Why has'nt the media, and the Bush administration been pursuing the man from a cave who is supposedly responsible for 9/11?
The other question i have is. Since the Bush family is friends with the Bin Laden family,i wonder what they talk about on family get togethers?............Comments?

It doesn't matter what the reward is

They could offer 50 trillion dollars for Osama. The guy is dead. Probably has been dead for 5+ years or so now. If he was alive we would have seen or heard SOMETHING from him by now. This is just another distraction to keep the sheeple believing he is alive, and being looked for. They know he's dead, and they'll never have to pay out the cash, but keeping him alive serves their purposes much better.

Dear Canadian4Truth

..........Still would love that question asked at a press conference,instead of the rehearsed questions asked. How far does the Bush administration have to go before people wake up and say WTF ?

About a month ago pictures

About a month ago pictures that to me "look" like Osama were posted here - I posted it to digg and it was dugg down ( http://digg.com/world_news/DEAD_BIN_LADEN_PICTURES )

In any case, If those are pictures of Osama, it would be consistent with everything else about the bogus war in Iraq. They have to have a boogeyman, and a dead boogeyman would have stopped the shift of the US consciousness towards vengence againts Muslims.

The reward meaningless as he will not be produced alive.

The possible options are to have some air strike claim to have killed Osama in Pakistan, thus allowing Bush to state that he did what Clinton failed to do, Kill Osama.

Osama and Alqueda is being revived now for PR. They are going to play the "We Got Osama" card, its one of the last cards they have left to play.

Right on

See for example this coverage of his death:

And given the politically unsavy way that Ayman al-Zawahiry--of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad and Bin Laden’s key lieutenant-- shows up at convenient times to stir up the terror pot even against the interests of Palestinians, Somalis, Iraqis, etc. He must be either a computer clone or has been coopted by the perpetuaters of the war on terror.

"We aren't waging jihad to lift oppression from the Muslims only, we are waging jihad to lift oppression from all of mankind"
Al Jazeera

Another example: Palestine.

Imagine this statement is just what the elected Hamas government needed in their struggle for international legitimasy:

"We tell our mujahidin brothers in the Hamas movement that we and all the Islamic nation stand by your side, but you have to correct your path," al-Zawahiri said.

Hamas took power after winning elections in March 2006, and earlier this year formed a unity government with Fatah as part of an attempt to resolve outbreaks of fighting between the two parties.

But Abbas (of Fatah) dismissed the unity cabinet headed by Ismail Haniya, the Palestinian prime minister, after what he said was a coup by Hamas and set up an emergency government in the West Bank, supported by the US and other Western powers. In this case Zawahiry confirms that Hamas must be Al Qaida and therefore evil!

Al Jazeera

Another eample: How unsavy of Ayman al-Zawahri to sarcastically referre to a congressional bill that ties funding for the US effort in Iraq to a timetable for troops to withdraw. It would seem that this statement just serves Bush (see link to Al Jazeera above):

"This bill will deprive us of the opportunity to destroy the American forces which we have caught in a historic trap," al-Zawahri said, adding the bill was evidence of American "failure and frustration".

Here he is taunting anybody who may consider voting for withdrawal. I can hear Bush Say, see I told you the threat is real. But the Iraqis want the US out, it is not in their interests to have taunting messages put out just as withdrawal is being considered. I will not go into the Somali example but it is more of the same.

Yes, Bin Laden is dead, and I dont believe any of such of his Leutenant Al Zawahri messages. Just hokus pokus, mumbo jumbo, that only serve the interests of the Bush agenda.


needs to turn the body in and claim the reward.



"Fearing a possible coded signal to attack, U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials are studying an unusual pattern of words in the latest audiotape from al Qaeda's No. 2 man, Ayman al Zawahri.

On the tape, posted on the Internet Wednesday, Zawahri repeats one phrase three times at the end of his message.

Have I not conveyed? Oh God be my witness.

Have I not conveyed? Oh God be my witness.

Have I not conveyed? Oh God be my witness.

A new FBI analysis of al Qaeda messages, obtained by the Blotter on ABCNews.com, warns that "continued messages that convey their strategic intent to strike the U.S. homeland and U.S. interests worldwide should not be discounted as merely deceptive noise.

The ease and frequency of Zawahri's propaganda messages is one of the factors that have led U.S. intelligence analysts to worry about a possible attack against the United States this summer."

ABC has broadcast the "attack signal" far and wide. Think about that.

If "intelligence officials" were "studying" this (somehow untraceable) internet posting for coded messages, that process would be classified.

The gov/corporate media conveniently "terrorizes" the public with vague threats and "enemy" propaganda which often mimics "progressive" criticism of US foreign policy.

The work of a terrorist is to create fear and anxiety to effect public behavior. Who is enabling and magnifying this effect? Why are the FBI, spooky contractors like "IntelCenter" and the corporate media serving as Zawahri's mouthpiece?

They made the same claim

They made the same claim when the "bin laden confession video" was "found" . They never actually SHOWED it on TeeVee
in my country, for that claimed reason, but they did let "unnamed intelligence sources" comment on it 24/7 .
It's quite clear that abc is just a cog in the propaganda-machine .

ABC News and Brian Ross

ABC News and Brian Ross always seem to get the fake terror threats before anyone else. Ross has spun a LOT of propaganda over the years and has more "inside sources" than most. and he clearly trusts them very much(or, you know, he has an agenda....). hes a true criminal.

"The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media." ~ William Colby, Former Director, CIA

The administration has long ago

demonstrated its tactic on this one. The tactic is to say the War on Terror is bigger than any one terrorist, so it doesn't matter if OBL is caught, dead, whatever.

I agree with your protest. All I'm saying is, the Bushies have covered this base already.

But yeah, Bin Laden is dead.
