Osama Bin Laden's Death Claimed, But How Does One Kill a Corpse?Tim King Salem-News.com
'Iconic value' - Obama hits the airwaves claiming his 'victory'. Don't believe a word of it.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Many of us have believed that Usama bin Laden died long ago and his image became an amazing tool for a government bent on keeping an American public scared and baffled. Now, finally, the U.S. government has admitted that bin Laden is indeed dead.
MSNBC reports that the U.S. government has his body, according to, "a person familiar with developments."
Obama says bin Laden died in a firefight, however media is reporting that he was killed by a bomb launched from a drone and that 20 other people were killed.
This is terrible, there is no track record with the U.S. military to justify the deaths of 20 people in a home. I call foul, foul!
First, let's remember that this man was not wanted in connected with the attacks that happened on U.S. soil 11 Sept. 2001. A statement was released by bin Laden immediately after the attacks stating that he had nothing to do with the U.S. attacks.
He was not an al Qaida leader, he was involved in its founding, with the CIA, in a joint U.S./Mujahideen operation to defeat the Soviets.
He was a friend of America. For God's sake, bin Laden was one of the chief men behind the actual defeat of the Soviet Union. It folded after Afghanistan. We always kill political leaders who were previously our friends.
This is reportedly a CIA operation that led to the 'death' of bin Laden so many years after the United States attacked Afghanistan in 2001.
MSNBC reports that, "Details of the death were sparse".
CNN's Wolf Blitzer reported that he was killed in a mansion outside Islamabad, the Pakistani capital.
Just remember that we have taken this apart; so has the BBC and other groups.
Over the years, the appearance and sound of Usama bin Laden, who is often referred to as 'Osama' bin Laden has changed, his hairline and hair color have changed, he was at one point appearing dramatically younger after it was documented that he was terribly ill back in 2000.
It is again, extremely important to note that bin Laden was never listed as a suspect in the attacks on the United States.
The FBI wanted poster, as shown in this new condensed format, thanks to the FBI, makes absolutely no reference to 911. It seems fair after what we are told, that he would at least have his name on it with the feds.
Al Qaida was created by the CIA as a covert operation to arm and fund the Afghan rebels during the Soviet invasion of their country. It became the buzz word of U.S. politicians but there is no structured group of this name, unlike the Taliban.
The U.S. has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, so they say, but for those of us who have examined this story with a critical eye, and in my case by actually being in Afghanistan and talking to many people in the affected areas; it seems like political grandstanding.
So do they have kidney dialysis machines in Pakistan that are always easy to access without revealing your identity... as bin Laden?
The following is from my report in the summer of 2007:
When I was in Afghanistan last winter, I had many opportunities to talk to Afghan citizens there about bin Laden, and learn their bottom line thoughts on this man that by so many accounts, is a dedicated enemy of the west
In the current developing story about the alleged killing of Usama bin Laden, it is reported that at least one woman was also killed in the U.S. drone strike.
Another Salem-News.com writer, Maidhc Ó Cathail, raised eyebrows last year when he explored the myth of bin Laden:
But what if bin Laden is not hiding in Pakistan? What if he’s been dead since December 2001? How then does Islamabad prove that some of its government officials are not concealing his whereabouts?
Al Jazeera anchors talked about how in recent years the U.S. distanced itself from the bin Laden story; it has been stated that he is not the focus of the war. However with the way they are waving the victory flag, it again appears that this man who has been off the books for nine and a half years, since the time he was probably killed in a cave system by an early U.S. attack, is suddenly very important.
It is also reported that one of bin Laden's sons was killed.
This is also from a previous report:
Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden (with numerous variations); Arabic: (سامة بن محمد بن عوض بن لادن), like Saddam Hussein and Ho Chi Minh, led a fight funded by American money that involved the loss of life on a large scale.
The final thought is that there are about a million guys in the Middle east who look like bin Laden.
He is a Wahabi Muslim and they are the radical factions in Saudi Arabia who maintain rules that absolutely trash women. I see them in a class with Zionists and hard core fundamentalist right wing American Christians. I do not approve and I am sorry so many people fail to see how this element is the one we support in Saudi Arabia. Iraq, Iran and other nations are extremely advanced in comparison.
Usama bin Laden ended up in Afghanistan, dressing like a man from Jalalabad, strictly because he came to the aid of the Afghan fighters engaged in a grueling battle against Communist Soviet invaders who like the USA, use the Afghan Army to oppose the local resistance.
His training camp which I believe he used after the Soviet War, maybe, is in Jalalabad and I have been there. But when you are over there, particularly when I was, in 2006 and 2007, you can find an endless list of horror stories about the Taliban and all of their terrible acts against the people of Kabul and other cities with never a mention of bin Laden.
I have relayed these stories about the fundamentalist Taliban with their black turbans in my reports, and there are memorable quotes from Afghans, all of which never mentioned 'Usama bin Laden.'
A 12-year old boy named Fadid in Kabul was one example. He said he sincerely appreciated the presence of American forces because: "...they are shooting the Taliban, they came here patrolling to bring prosperity, social justice, and unity to my country."
That was so interesting to me, because one person after another, like this kid, or the two women I met at a Kabul hospital who were attacked by Taliban in Kabul during the terrible years, in the 1990's, left forever in wheelchairs, and many others; they were quick to disparage the Taliban and describe them in ways that made your stomach weak, but nobody in that entire country mentioned Usama bin Laden or seemed to know anything about him.
But Taliban stories were everywhere you turned.
Osama bin Laden was a real person who had very interesting accomplishments under his belt that greatly benefited America, but he is also a component in a bullshit story spun by people in very high places and there was probably never ever any real threat from the Arab world against the United States.
That whole 11 September incident may indeed be another story, but the official version lacks credibility and is physically impossible by any scientific analysis.
The story about bin Laden's past is all out there and anyone can confirm what I write from a number of sources.
As far as this character Usama bin Laden is concerned, anyone who listens to the interviews with people who knew him come away with a very different picture of this man. He was apparently willing to commit acts of terrorism and that made him a wanted man, no doubt about it.
But I personally believe he has been dead, again, since the fighting in 2001 and that his 'messages' have completely been created for the event by parties that want to use his image and position to influence, threaten and frighten an American populace.
He certainly set a record for the longest running guy with a $25 billion price tag on his head. Again, they are reporting on Al Jazeera that there has been no positive confirmation of identity. There are differences over where the 'remains' will go.
