MEDIA ROOTS- Last year marked the tenth anniversary of America's invasion of Afghanistan, officially making it the longest war in US history. Now that Osama Bin Laden is finally confirmed dead, the federal government's logic of continuing the occupation remains unclear.
Initially, the Bush administration irrationally insisted that any sovereign nation harboring terrorists was itself complicit in "terror" and therefore open for pre-emptive US military action. This rationale is absurd– just because one criminal might be living inside of a particular country doesn't make that entire country guilty of the criminal's crimes.
In 2002, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was quick to tell CNN that US forces had successfully pushed the Taliban and Al Qaeda out of the region, and reports reveal that Osama Bin Laden hadn't even been in Afghanistan since 2001. Additionally, a White House spokesperson recently admitted that there hasn't been a terrorist threat in the country for the last eight years.
So what has the US been doing in Afghanistan for the last decade?

Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Steve R. Pieczenik says "9/11 was a false flag operation, I would tell this in court"
The above video is an excerpt from an interview between Alex Jones and Dr. Steve Pieczenik entitled 'Bin Laden, The Oswald Like Patsy Died 10 Years Ago'.

From the article:
Capturing bin Laden 'would unleash hell' ... The mastermind of the 9/11 attacks warned. Also on that al-Qaeda has hidden a nuclear bomb in Europe which will unleash a "nuclear hellstorm" if Osama bin Laden is captured, leaked files revealed. The terror group also planned to make a 9/11 style attack on London's Heathrow airport by crashing a hijacked airliner into one of the terminals, the files showed. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed told Guantanamo Bay interrogators the terror group would detonate the nuclear device if the al-Qaeda chief was captured or killed, according to the classified files released by the WikiLeaks website. – MSN.com

Absurd Terror Threat Arises in Mid-term Home Stretch
October 2, 2010
(Please see infowars link above for video clips and exhaustive sublinks. A good read)
Intelligence agencies — legendary for staging numerous false flag attacks — are warning that Osama bin Laden has issued instructions for Mumbai-style attack on three European targets.
Earlier in the week U.S. officials issued a warning that Osama and crew would strike once again. The new plot, emerging suspiciously close to U.S. mid-term elections and coinciding with the Pentagon’s illegal murder campaign in Pakistan, is said to “credible but non-specific.” The new plot was supposedly revealed by a suspect undergoing “interrogation” at the Bagram torture facility in Afghanistan.
“Investigators believe al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden signed off on a European attack plan, a separate law enforcement source said. But U.S. and international officials say they have seen no sign of an imminent attack,” CNN reported on September 29.
Osama bin Laden: CIA Asset
The website itself:
The SITE Intelligence Group is a not for profit terrorist research institute run by Rita Katz. It is the successor organisation to the SITE Institute which closed in 2008. The focus of the organisation according to information provided on its website is the provision of a subscription based Monitoring Service detailing the following:
1. Entire translated transcripts of terrorist leaders’ speeches, videos, and audio messages, as well as the original video and audio messages.
2. Translations of terrorist books, magazines, fatwas, and military training manuals.
3. Translations of terrorist communiqués, including copies of videos and audio messages associated with the communiqués.
Decoding Scheuer's Call for Osama to Kill More Americans
"War on Terror" advocates want civilians to die to justify "War on Terror"
The Corbett Report
6 July, 2009
CIA analyst Michael Scheuer's recent call for bin Laden to kill more Americans would be shocking if we hadn't already heard it dozens of times before from other "War on Terror" advocates. "It's an absurd situation," Scheuer told FOX News personality Glenn Beck on his program last week. "Only Osama can execute an attack that will force Americans to demand that their government protect them effectively, consistently, and with as much violence as necessary."
Osama Bin Laden Challenges Obama In Tape

Obama administration to ratchet up hunt for bin Laden
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President-elect Barack Obama wants to renew the U.S. commitment to finding al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, according to his national security advisers.
Osama bin Laden remains on the run despite a $25 million reward for his capture.
The Obama team believes the Bush administration has downplayed the importance of catching the FBI's most-wanted terrorist because it has not been able to find him.
"We will kill bin Laden. We will crush al Qaeda. That has to be our biggest national security priority," Obama said during the presidential debate on October 7.
But tracking down bin Laden won't be easy.
In May, al Qaeda released an audiotape featuring bin Laden. But U.S. intelligence officials say they haven't had a solid lead on the terrorist mastermind's whereabouts since late 2001, when he was nearly captured in a battle with U.S. forces near Tora Bora, Afghanistan.
Using popular culture and humor to spread 911 truth, the producers at Brooklyn v Bush TV present:
Story begins, you know, with old St. Augustine.
Way back in days of old he reported on this theme:
A mighty emperor had caught himself a pirate who
Was a-terrorizin' people who were sailin' on the open seas.
ALEXANDER THE GREAT: What meanest thou by keeping hostile possession of the sea?
PIRATE: What meanest thou by seizing the whole earth; because I do it with a petty ship, I'm called a robber, whilst thou who dost the same with a great fleet art styled emperor.
NARRATOR: And old St. Augustine thought that was a pretty smart answer!
'Cause there are
pirates and emperors, but they're really the same thing
When they go and try to reach the same ends
By using the same means.
Well they do it big
or they do it small
From a little tiny boat,
