Allowing Bin Laden To Escape

Haas- Muckraker Report- CIA letter supports assertion that OBL “confession video” was a sting operation

Many 9/11 truth seekers have long ago concluded that the issue surrounding the “confession video” is that it is a fake video – that the Osama bin Laden in the video is not Osama bin Laden at all. As I have previously admitted in earlier articles, I once held the fat bin Laden belief. However, thanks to the fine work of Muckraker Report contributing writer Maher Osseiran, and my further investigation into the videotape, I am now convinced that the video is indeed authentic. See Article - Taking the fat out of the fat bin Laden confession video

However, the translation of the “confession video” that the U.S. government provided the corporate media is significantly flawed, and the dates and circumstances related to the discovery of the video cannot possibly be accurate. Furthermore, the DoD claimed in its December 13, 2001 press release that the “video was filmed by unknown persons”. While the DoD may not have known who filmed the video at the time it issued its press release, I am now certain that the CIA did. The corporate media does not consider this type of information newsworthy. Why?

Bush's Tora Bora Bull

How important is a story like this? Well, for newcomers that come to this site, people that aren't sure whether or not the "official story" is a lie, it speaks volumes. Imagine coming to this site thinking that Osama Bin Laden was solely responsible for the 9/11 attacks, and that we went into Afghanistan to get him "dead or alive", only to find out that we made a decision to allow him to escape. Then, just a few months later, Bush says he isn't "too concerned" about getting the alleged perpetrator of the 9/11 attacks. On top of that, the real purpose of nation building and regime change in Afghanistan is exposed. That speaks volumes. I am well aware that our Government never provided evidence that Osama Bin Laden was responsible for the attacks. I am well aware that 9/11 is not a crime listed on Osama Bin Laden's FBI poster. I am well aware that the Taliban said that Osama Bin Laden didn't pull of the attacks. I am well aware that there are several reports stating that Osama is dead. I am also aware that pointing out contradictions in the official story, using reported facts as opposed to unproven theories, is extremely helpful in making our case. - Jon

It's now common knowledge that Osama bin Laden escaped from Afghanistan in December 2001 and is still at large, still at al-Qaeda's helm calling the shots. Even Rush Limbaugh knows it, and has stopped trying to convince dittoheads that President Bush has the terror kingpin's body on ice somewhere.

How we let bin Laden get away is still in dispute, however. And it's no trivial matter.

The White House, loath to take the blame for an embarrassing failure, has deflected criticism by denying we ever had Enemy No. 1 cornered in Tora Bora, as virtually every foreign correspondent who was there at the time has reported.

Singing from the same hymnal, Bush, Vice President Cheney, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and former CENTCOM Commander Gen. Tommy Franks have all insisted: "We didn't know if bin Laden was at Tora Bora."

But two CIA officers who were on the ground then argue they did in fact know he was there – and did next to nothing to snatch him. So does the CIA official who briefed the president about the Afghan operations.

Now the former CIA director is backing them up.
