Reporter Asks White House Homeland Security Advisor About Bin Laden

In a White House press briefing today, a reporter asked the White House Homeland Security Advisor why Bin Laden hasn't been caught when it can't be too hard to find him, given that he's on dialysis and has to have been lugging dialysis equipment from cave to cave.

Of course, Bin Laden has probably been dead for several years. And the CIA commander in charge of Bin Laden's capture said that the U.S. LET Bin Laden escape from Afghanistan.

But at least the reporter had the backbone to ask an obvious question.

Q Fran, do you know if Osama bin Laden is still on a dialysis machine, is he still ill? What? I mean, could you tell us about that? I mean, because -- it might be laughable, but people are finding it hard, six years this man is sick, moving around from cave to cave, and can't be found -- with a dialysis machine?

MS. TOWNSEND: Have you ever been to the tribal areas? I suspect not.

Q No, I haven't, but I've seen some great pictures from Ken Herman as to the rough terrain over that way. (Laughter.)

MS. TOWNSEND: It's not exactly easy. If it were easy he'd be dead.

Q But it's not easy for him to travel around with medics and machinery if he's sick. I mean, is he -- do you know from your intelligence if he's still sick? What do you know about that?

MS. TOWNSEND: I'm not going to talk about that.

Thanks to Chris for the tip.

that was a riot!

Thanks for the transcript Chris. I got a pm but I forgot how to find it. I watched that on CNN this morning. That question brought the press conference to an abrubt end. Fran's smirk was priceless. She must have gone to the chimp's school of smirking. And who was that reporter with the cajones?

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

no problem

do you remember what he/she looked like?

edit:nevermind, it wasnt Helen Thomas. im not sure who it was, somebody named April it sounded like.

he'd be dead...

notice how they will word the correct answer with the statement, while still stating the opposite intention.
I'm sure that I have seen this doublespeak before.


the pm is in the email. first thing I did was click the link. thanks for finding that Chris.

of course she doesn't know

why would she be in the loop on this - but of course his handlers know exactly where he is - indeed if he is still alive, which doesn't matter a bit, because it's only his legend that's useful in promoting the myth of Islamofascism - over in Iraq it's now all Al Queda all the time - a legend more useful there by the day - the success of selling this myth to the US citizenry would laughable beyond all measure if it weren't so tragic

sadly, it's not just in the US ...

European media is also promoting this outrageous lie about
the Iraqi resistance all being "Al-Qaeda" and every dead person in Afghanistan being a "Talebani" . In my country it started right after the editor-in-chief of our most influential newspaper came home from the annual Bilderberg-summit .

Proof Bin Laden Tape Is

Proof Bin Laden Tape Is 5-Year-Old, Re-Released Footage
Why did IntelCenter, the middleman between "Al-Qaeda" and the media, a group that has government and Pentagon ties, re-release old footage and why did the media report it as new when it had already aired twice before?

Al-Jazeera said they had the footage as far back as October 2001, but chose not to air it as they saw it as "not newsworthy" and "nothing more than a PR stunt." Six years later, and with the footage having been released on two separate occasions already, the western media insinuated that the tape was new and splashed it everywhere as a top headline.

In our previous groundbreaking investigation, we exposed IntelCenter, the middleman between "Al-Qaeda's media arm" and the press, and the organization that routinely obtains the tapes, as little more than a Pentagon front group staffed by individuals with close connections to the military-industrial complex.

IntelCenter were also behind the release of the "new" Osama tape - having previously released the same footage (the second time it had appeared) in October 2003!
