CAIR's soft spot for terrorists extends well beyond the Hamas connections documented in yesterday's installment in this comprehensive series on the group. Today we focus on its portrayal of virtually any law enforcement action against radical elements as an assault on all American Muslims.
· Days after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, CAIR-New York Executive Director Ghazi Khankan used an online chat with the Washington Post to launch a weeks-long campaign casting them as part of a conspiracy to discredit Muslims. Citing spurious evidence, he claimed that "many of the names of the terrorists are people impersonating innocent Muslims and Arabs."
Look who's back in time to celebrate easter and the 5th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.
It seems strange and suspicious that Bin Laden would resurface to bing up the Danish cartoon issue of 2005 so long after the whole thing has been forgotten by the rest of the world.
"Bin Laden's message was entitled "The Response Will Be What You See, Not What You Hear," according to the password-protected Ekhlaas Web, which carries messages and statements from al Qaeda-affiliated groups around the world."
I know I'm just a paranoid conspiracy theorist but even to my fevered mentally unstable mind, this story seems concocted (and badly at that.)
Old videos new to me and probably others. They speak for themselves.

From Good Morning America
Saudi Arabia's Interior Minister Prince Nayef said,"Bin Laden was a "tool" of others rather than the mastermind of 9/11"
An article from USA Today dated 2/06/2002, contains compelling statements made by Saudi Arabia's Interior Minister Prince Nayef. He said, Bin Laden was a "tool" of others rather than the mastermind of the attacks against the World Trade Center, Pentagon and in Pennsylvania. He did not say who he thought was the mastermind."
Interestingly enough, I came across this article cited by a debunking website as proof all the 9/11 hi-jackers are dead. Prince Nayef alleges that Saudi leaders were shocked to learn 15 of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. "The names that we got confirmed that," Nayef said in an interview. "Their families have been notified." However, the most interesting thing about this article was apparently not noticed by our OCT clinger and instead a rather vague remark about contacting the family members of the 15 Saudi hi-jackers is cited as proof positive they are all dead.
Messages From Bin Laden Since 9-11
Associated Press tabulation of messages supposedly from Bin Laden, since 9/11. Please write to them; they forgot the first 2, very important messages from Bin Laden after 9/11, where he denies responsibility; in the Sept 28 message, he points the finger at US intelligence agencies
Who was behind 9/11? – an interview with Osama Bin Laden By The Daily Ummat of Karachi Sept. 28, 2001
Whether Bin Laden is dead or alive, it is clear that the U.S. is using him as a prop for propaganda purposes.
If Bin Laden is alive, the U.S. has missed numerous slam-dunk opportunities to capture or kill him. Don't believe me? Read this:
i was doing a little research on Iridium satellite system.
Iridium was supposed to offer communications to anyone anywhere
even remote areas, because it was a satellite system and not land towers.
As an RF (cellular - radio) engineer for SPINT PCS, i first became interested in 9/11
when i heard about those cell phone calls.
They didnt happen, at least NOT at 35,000ft
We now have a video of Deana Burnette saying that she saw Tom's phone # on her caller ID.
This goes directly against what the GOV said, that only FELT, and CeeCee Lyles
were using cell phones.
Ill post more about cell phones later,
but now, back to Iridium...
This is pretty old, i think FEMA already does use them.
"DOD reserves gateway to Iridium's global satellite service; other agencies mayfollow
The Defense Department is the largest single customer for Iridium LLC’s financially troubled global satellite communications service.
DOD has reserved one of the consortium’s 12 ground gateways capable of serving up to 120,000 users and 1,000 simultaneous calls. The Army, Navy and Air Force are testing ways to integrate the Iridium satellite network into their communications plans.
Fear Factor – A Woodshop Productions documentary
September 18, 2007 – This short documentary produced by Woodshop Productions and narrated by Bryan Sacks discusses the research of Muckraker Report contributing writer, Maher Osseiran regarding the videotape of Osama bin Laden that was released by the federal government on December 13, 2001. The documentary also addresses the effort of the Muckraker Report, through the use of Freedom of Information Act requests, to obtain any documentation from the government that demonstrates the chain of custody of the video from the time it was obtained, through the authenticity process (if any), until such time that it was released to the media.
Posted by Ed Haas on The Muckraker Report on September 18, 2007.
The newest picture of Bin Laden proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is caught in one of those Star Trek time warps:
The terror master is now much younger than he was a couple of years ago:
Indeed, he appears to have traveled so far back in time that he no longer is dead, no longer has to be hooked up to a kidney dialysis machine, and has the appearance of a 20-year old.
If Captain Kirk, Spock and Scotty don't do something, baby Bin Laden will soon be issuing jihads wearing diapers.
Correction: the Yahoo news article from which I got the top photo says it is a previously-released photo.
Created as proof of concept, this is a highly amusing video, very funny indeed.
This is a totally fake Bin Laden video, which is more convincing than the real thing.
This shows how easy it is to fake an Osama video.
"NEXT FF ATTACK REVEALED -- NO SHIT -- TAKE CAUTION"
Updated to include the new video and the new poll.
The day after the first national poll showed that 70 million Americans support a new 9/11 investigation, and 55% of Americans disapprove of the way in which the media has covered questions surrounding 9/11, what does the mainstream media do?
They covered the poll, and apologized for their terrible coverage of the evidence that 9/11 was an inside job or allowed to happen on purpose! Finally, it only took them 4 and a half years, but they've finally started reporting the truth!
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.)
Did the FBI really say that Osama Bin Laden is "not wanted" for 9/11 because there is "no hard evidence" against him? And what about the infamous Fatty Bin Laden confession video that OBL expert Bruce Lawrence of Duke University says is "bogus" ? Can we now prove the government is lying about its provenance? Kevin Barrett will seek answers to these and other questions in an interview with muckraking journalists Ed Haas and Meher Osseiran today, Friday 6/29, 3-5 p.m. on Dynamic Duo, http://gcnlive.com network 2.

Bin Laden backer blasted

THE refusal by Australia's new Mufti to accept Osama bin Laden was responsible for the September 11 attacks has sparked a mass brawl online.
In his first day in the job, the cleric Sheik Fehmi Naji el-Imam stuck by his long-standing view questioning whether bin Laden was behind the 2001 attacks.
"What evidence?" he said when asked if he now accepted bin Laden's role in the atrocity.
Two years ago, when asked the same question, he said: "How would I know? He's unable to be found."
More than one hundred outraged readers have written to this website to protest - while others are backing his call.
I found these pictures on the internet by chance 2-3 years ago.
They have since been withdrawn from the original website but are still retrievable on archive.org.
The archive site dates Dec. 2002.
I obviously don't know if these pictures are real or fake.
I haven't faked them.
If somebody could please find out what that arabic writing underneath one of the pictures means.

9/11: Why They Attacked Us
Bin Laden: In His Own Words
WTP: Petition For Redress
Please sit and take a deep breath, or even two, before you begin reading this article.
Sometimes the truth can hurt -- a lot. This may be one of those times. It was for us.
Before continuing, please remember: we are only the messengers; we deal with facts, not opinions; the Country and the Government are two separate things; we will forever love our Country and be willing to give our lives in defense of its system of governance – as designed and set forth in our founding document – but, we should always distrust the Government; we avoid all political questions; we seek only to hold those in Government accountable to Truth, Justice and the Constitution, regardless of their political stripes; we have confronted Democrat and Republican administrations with equal fervor.
I believe that Kevin Barrett's interview with Osama Bin Laden expert Bruce Lawrence is one of the most important interviews in a while. Therefore, I am happy that the interview will be rebroadcast next week, February 26th, 3-4pm Central Time. If anyone records it, please let us know. As Barrett says by email:
Top U.S. Bin Laden Expert: Confession Video “Bogus”
Here’s the biggest 9/11 truth story in weeks, complete with all the links. Kevin Barrett’s interview with Osama expert Bruce Lawrence will be replayed on “Dynamic Duo,” http://gcnlive.com, next Monday, Feb. 26th, 3-4pm CT. See radio and lecture schedule: http://mujca.com/airwaves.htm
Barrett also says "Please email your congressional representatives with the subject header “investigate bogus Bin Laden ‘confession video’ NOW!” and include a copy of this article in the body of the message."
I support Barrett's call for an email campaign to congress, although I would recommend waiting until someone posts a link to the actual interview.
Kevin Barrett sent the following email:
Top U.S. Bin Laden Expert: Confession Video “Bogus”
by Kevin Barrett, http://mujca.com
Was Osama Bin Laden responsible for 9/11?
The Bush Administration says yes, citing a grainy, badly-edited videotape that surfaced in December, 2001. In that tape, a fat guy who vaguely resembles Bin Laden chortles about the success of the 9/11 attacks. (In earlier interviews, Bin Laden had denied responsibility for 9/11, once even deploring the loss of civilian life in the attacks and calling them un-Islamic.)
Is the famous “confession video” genuine? Despite Bush’s insistence that the tape is authentic, America’s top academic Bin Laden expert has finally gone on the record, joining numerous other experts.
“It’s bogus,” says Professor Bruce Lawrence, head of Duke University’s Religious Studies program.
Looks like Lionel is discussing 9/11 on tonight's show, which airs from 10 PM until 1 AM EST. Here is a list of Today's Features:
FBI 10 Most Wanted: Osama Bin Laden
Why isn't bin Laden listed as being wanted in connection with 9/11? Does the FBI know something we don't?
9/11 News Articles
There have been references to many key questions about 9/11 investigations and facts that have been almost subterranean. Until now. This is amazing.
Scholars for 9/11 Truth
This site provides an exhaustive compendium of articles, hypotheses and theories anent 9/11 that you won't see or read in the mainstream media. Why?
There is also a poll you can vote on:
Do you believe the official accounts of what actually happened on 9/11?
I went to the Le Figaro site to check the archives for the article on the CIA visiting Bin Laden in the American Hospital in Dubai (that has been continually referenced). I wanted to see the original source.... but no luck. Try for yourself here.
The closest to the original article I could find was this smh.com.au article, published 10/31/01.
Does anyone know how to find the original Le Figaro article?
