Osama Bin Laden
Wednesday 6 July 2011
by: Gareth Porter, Truthout
A few days after Barack Obama's December 2009 announcement of 33,000 more troops being sent to Afghanistan, in testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Defense Secretary Robert Gates advanced the official justification for escalation: the Afghan Taliban would not abandon its ties with al-Qaeda unless forced to do so by US military force and the realization that "they're likely to lose."
Gates claimed to see an "unholy alliance" of the Afghan Taliban, al-Qaeda and the Pakistani Taliban emerging during 2009. Unless the United States succeeded in weakening the Taliban in Afghanistan, al-Qaeda would have safe haven in Afghanistan, just as they had before the 9/11 attacks, according to Gates.
Even in comparison with the usual lies that justify wars, this one was a whopper. Gates was deliberately ignoring the serious political split that had become apparent in 2008 between Mullah Omar, the spiritual and political leader of the Taliban, and the leadership of al-Qaeda over fundamental issues of strategy and ideology.
"I am doing it because I am a patriotic American who wants to know the truth," Warren, 59, told the US news outlet TMZ. "I do it for the world." ... "I want to prove, one way or the other that he is, in fact, dead," Warren said.
Treasure hunter searches for Osama bin Laden's body
ABC Good Morning America - June 13, 2011
~JuiceMedia RapNews: episode 8. It's the end of an era. The decade which opened with a ferocious attack in the United States of America, closes with the announcement of the death of its greatest and most conveniently disney-like villain, Usama Bin Laden. In a decade which has been dominated by the Empire Strikes Back, our affable and dextrous host Robert Foster invites us to scrutinise the events shrouding the killing of this twentyfirst-century Goldstein. Joining him in this May retrospective are Rap News regulars, General Baxter, the Pentagon's most effusive spokesperson, attempting uncharacteristically to stay 'on message', and his counterpart from the world of alternative academia, the conspiracy industry's favourite son, Terrence Moonseed. What actually happened in Abbotabad? Do the public have a right to see evidence of this event? What is Terrence wearing on his head? Was justice really served? What next? History is happening.
On the day Osama bin Laden was announced killed, there were reports about DNA tests being made and resulting in a positive match, beginning in the morning here in Germany, likewise 7-9 hours after the raid. On midday, 12-14 hours after the raid, there was a slightly change, they said DNA tests had been made but the results are open, in the afternoon, 16-19 hours after the raid, they announced a 99,9% positive match.
Only a single newspaper magazine here in Germany had the guts to question a DNA-expert themselves, the SZ (Süddeutsche Zeitung). The expert said, such a fast result is unlikely. And a 99,9% match too, especially if DNA of Osama bin Laden was extracted first out of the death body and the checking sample was from a relative, not by him himself, taken earlier. If the referring probe came from a woman, half-sister, it would be nearly impossible to reach 99,9%, most likely 90% at most, if he was her half-brother, but then, Osama did have lots of other brothers, it could still would mean no positive identification.
Now Mike Ruppert turns in after a long time absent from 9/11 truth. He did ask a DNA expert himself, too. Look what this expert has to say:

We might ask ourselves how we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at George W. Bush's compound, assassinated him, and dumped his body in the Atlantic.
It's increasingly clear that the operation was a planned assassination, multiply violating elementary norms of international law. There appears to have been no attempt to apprehend the unarmed victim, as presumably could have been done by 80 commandos facing virtually no opposition - except, they claim, from his wife, who lunged towards them. In societies that profess some respect for law, suspects are apprehended and brought to fair trial. I stress "suspects." In April 2002, the head of the FBI, Robert Mueller, informed the press that after the most intensive investigation in history, the FBI could say no more than that it "believed" that the plot was hatched in Afghanistan, though implemented in the UAE and Germany. What they only believed in April 2002, they obviously didn't know 8 months earlier, when Washington dismissed tentative offers by the Taliban (how serious, we do not know, because they were instantly dismissed) to extradite bin Laden if they were presented with evidence - which, as we soon learned, Washington didn't have. Thus Obama was simply lying when he said, in his White House statement, that "we quickly learned that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by al Qaeda."
As is true for you readers, I only have so much time to read, and less time to write, in my "hobby" for social justice. The following is a reprint of one of the sharpest minds I read, the author of Washington's Blog.
The article is stunningly brilliant; the author has my ongoing and deepest appreciation.

Preface: You can either dismiss all of the allegations in the first part of this post as nutty conspiracy theories, or decide that they are real and that I am using parody. Your choice. Either way, it is clear that we've been had ...
Forget that Bin Laden likely received CIA training and support in fighting against the Russians in Afghanistan. See this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this.
Ghosts of September 11, By Mike Ruppert
Proof Obama is lying (as if we need proof!)
this is an excerpt:
Let’s start with what I consider the most-obvious proof that the Obama administration is lying. It comes from a world-class microbiologist who allowed me to use this quote on condition of anonymity. The simple proof of his accuracy is to just ask any microbiologist experienced in DNA sequencing about his statement. There are tens of thousands of them around the world.
Here is what he wrote me:

Daily Star, 3 May 2001
Daily Express, 4 May 2011
News of the World, 8 May 2011
Let's get back to what is really important: Building 7 and the (un)controlled demolition of the WTC on 9/11
With all the hullabaloo around the "alleged" (and if so illegal) assassination of Osama bin Laden we have almost lost sight about what is the real important issue at hand: The unexplained collapse of WTC 7 and the improbable collapses of WTC 1 and 2 as a result of planes having been flown into them.
While the White house has done everything it seems to convolute the information about what did or did not occur in Abbottabad (which for some reason reminds me uncomfortably of the word Abattoir) it seems to me that we have temporarily lost sight of what is the real issue here. Whatever the role of Osama bin Laden we have a very serious problem which no matter whether he got killed last week or 9 years ago has not been addressed with his death.
Osama Bin Laden never charged for 911 – Inside Job likely
May 2, 2011
Osama Bin Laden’s death is being celebrated, and everyone seems to repeat the old conspiracy theory that he was indeed the mastermind behind the terror attacks of 9/11. But that was never proven, and there is not even evidence hinting at such a connection according to the FBI. It is very well possible that completely different organizations than al-Qaeda were responsible for the planning and execution of 9/11, and that the latter was merely one of the involved parties.
On Sunday, May 1st, 2011, around 7 p.m. PDT, the Obama administration revealed its noble murder of Osama Bin Laden to the world. The face of terror, the Emmanuel Goldstein of 21st century America had been slain; thus began our prolonged period of two-minute hate.
By Monday morning, the front cover of every major newspaper in the country was graced with Bin Laden's face and a concise headline regarding his execution. People would have something to talk about for the May 2nd work week, and surely after viewing, again for the 1,000th time in their lives, footage of the 9/11 attacks, people would be suffering from nightmares as well.
Terror alerts were issued. Security measures were raised. Demagogic speeches were given. And, following standard procedure, the source, the authority of the information was never questioned by the mainstream media, nor by the mainstream 'alternative' outlets.
Who was that authority?

Radical Cleric Still Speaks on YouTube
By SCOTT SHANE
Published: March 4, 2011
From the shootings at Fort Hood, Tex., to the stabbing of a British member of Parliament, investigators have identified Anwar al-Awlaki’s stirring online calls to jihad as an important instigator of terrorism. So members of Congress last year appealed to YouTube to remove calls for violence by Mr. Awlaki, the militant American-born cleric now hiding in Yemen, and in an announcement reported around the world last November, YouTube agreed.
End of story?
Not at all. A quick search of YouTube today for “Anwar al-Awlaki” finds hundreds of his videos, most of them scriptural commentary or clerical advice, but dozens that include calls for jihad or attacks on the United States.
