In a propaganda piece reeking of US Triumphalism, two alleged journalists,
Adam Goldman and Chris Brummitt, of the Associated Press or, rather, of the White House Ministry of Truth, write, or copy off a White House or CIA press release that "Osama bin Laden,
the terror mastermind killed by Navy SEALs in an intense firefight, was hunted down based on information first gleaned years
ago (emphasis added) from detainees at secret CIA prison sites in Eastern Europe, officials disclosed Monday."
How many Americans will notice that the first paragraph of the "report"
justifies CIA prisons and torture? Without secret prisons and torture "the terror mastermind" would still be running free,
despite having died from renal failure in 2001.
How many Americans will have the wits to wonder why the "terror mastermind"
– who defeated not merely the CIA and the FBI, but all 16 US intelligence agencies along with Israel’s Mossad
and the intelligence services of NATO, who defeated NORAD, the National Security Council, the Pentagon and Joint Chiefs of
Staff, the US Air Force, and Air Traffic Control, who caused security procedures to fail four times in US airports in one
hour on the same day, who caused the state-of-the-art Pentagon air defenses to fail, and who managed to fly three airliners
into three buildings with pilots who did not know how to fly – has not pulled off any other attack in almost ten years?
Do Americans really believe that a government’s security system that can so totally fail when confronted with a few
Saudi Arabians with box cutters can renew itself to perfection overnight?
How many Americans will notice the resurrection of the long missing bin
Laden as "terror mastermind" after his displacement by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the Guantanamo prisoner who confessed to being
the "mastermind of 9/11" after being water-boarded 183 times?
Americans are too busy celebrating to think, a capability that seems
to have been taken out of their education....
Excerpt continued in part
...The two reporters question nothing in the government’s propaganda.
Instead, the reporters join in the celebration. Nevertheless they let slip that "officials were weighing the release of at
least one photo taken of bin Laden’s body as part of what Brennan called an effort to make sure ‘nobody has any
basis to try and deny the death.’"
As the Guardian and European newspapers have revealed, the photo of the dead bin Laden is a fake. As the alleged body
has been dumped into the ocean, nothing remains but the word of the US government, which lied about Iraqi weapons of mass
destruction and al Qaeda connections, about yellowcake, about Iranian nukes, and, according to thousands of experts, about
9/11. Suddenly the government is telling us the truth about bin Laden’s death? If you believe that, I have a bridge
in Brooklyn that I’ll let you have for a good price.
My initial interpretation of the faked bin Laden death was that Obama
needed closure of the Afghan war and occupation in order to deal with the US budget deficit. Subsequent statements from Obama
regime officials suggest that the agenda might be to give Americans a piece of war victory in order to boost their lagging
enthusiasm. The military/security complex will become richer and more powerful, and Americans will be rewarded with vicarious
pleasure in victory over enemies.
