SEALed & Delivered: Account of Abbottabad Ensnares Obama in Impossible bin Laden ScenarioTim King Salem-News.com
"He looked very young, he had black hair" - Matt Bisonette, Navy SEAL, author of 'No Easy Day'
(SACRAMENTO, CA) - I constantly wonder if Americans are going to figure out that bin Laden was not killed in Pakistan. The official account is impossible on a number of levels for a multitude of reasons, just like the majority of the Bush administration's claims that led Americans into a costly and devastating war in Iraq. It begs the question: is there no limit to the contrast between the 'official story' and any realm of possibility?
Dead terrorists tell no tales. That might be the beginning and end of it, however bin Laden did tell a tale and it had absolutely no connection to what George W. Bush told the world later on the very same day.
Those of us who have been to Afghanistan know that around Jalalabad, every tenth guy walking down the street dresses like bin Laden with the white hat, sometimes a green army jacket and of course the beard. In the picture to the left, it is a two out of three ratio of men with a striking similarity. This is partly because bin Laden adopted this style of dress while living in Jalalabad and leading the Mujaheddin against the Russians. I mean they are everywhere! So obviously no limit of body doubles exist.
Through Al Jazeera we heard a neighbor of the home in question deny the possibility that it was bin Laden immediately after the attack. But now we learn that the man reported as being 'bin Laden' didn't look anything like the notorious terrorist at all.
"He looked very young, he had black hair".
The author of a new book; a member of the Navy SEAL team that stormed Abbottabad, Pakistan, confirms what I have been writing for years. Usama bin Laden was dying of kidney failure at the time of the 9/11 attacks, and was treated for this problem in a Dubai hospital just months before 9/11.
The only thing bin Laden ever got out to the public was not a series of threatening stereotypical jihad tapes, but a single press release that was carried by mainstream news agencies on 16 Sept. 2011, wherein he fully denied any involvement:
In his statement from 2001, bin Laden said:"The U.S. government has consistently blamed me for being behind every occasion its enemies attack it.
So regardless of whether or not we like it, Americans who believe the government's story, the same government that lied to you with the help of a New York Times reporter named Judith Miller about weapons of mass destruction, have to read that statement above and then read the following paragraph aloud.
So, are we all together on that now? If you believe bin Laden is responsible, then that has to be your quote.
The Navy SEAL using the name Mark Owen who wrote the book that will be released tomorrow, on 9/11, 'No Easy Day', gave us the biggest clue when he stated on network television, "He looked very young, he had black hair".
According to RTV, a day after news of the book hit the internet, so too did the true identity of the author.
Matt Bisonette was first identified as the author by Fox News, later confirmed by the Associated Press. Bissonnette, 36, has been awarded five Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart, according to his service record, as reported by the New York Times.
Bisonette had said in a press release through his publishers that the book is an attempt to “set the record straight about one of the most important missions in US military history."
“‘No Easy Day’ is the story of ‘the guys’, the human toll we pay, and the sacrifices we make to do this dirty job,” according to Bisonette.
On Demand Terrorist
The U.S. government released the bin Laden tapes. They used men who looked like the Saudi (sort of except one who does not at all- the young guy with shiny black hair) and Bush released them whenever the heat was on or of course, when he wanted something. It was fucking magic wasn't it? It worked like a charm and like a charm it was not real because charms don't have magic power, however Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld and their media robots in 'mainstream' carried the ball perfectly and of course I can not exclude myself from the initial draw to believe it all also. I am no better than the people I insult.
But I am a conveyor of truth for eight straight years exposing things that always only increasingly make Salem-News.com both hated and admired. In the end there are so many reasons to believe this is all a false story.
The Navy SEAL teams are honorable people. There is no way they are part of the recipe for what happened; they were the instruments and this book is the first of its kind in a modern age. The body of bin Laden being thrown from a ship, that was enough right there for me.
But the thing about Navy SEALs and similar groups, and I write from absolutely direct experience, is that they monitor all news that goes out about them and when they disagree with a story about their military unit, and believe their honor is being called into question, they act and are very serious about it. They demand retractions, they expect clarity and for only what appear to be perfectly acceptable reasons. Sometimes they write from their private email and just try to set a story straight, or leave a comment at the bottom of the story, but they never seem to miss a mistake published in an online news story.
No SEAL has ever written to criticize my articles that state for so many reasons, how the Obama story about the man most know as Osama bin Laden, is impossible. I was in bin Laden's training camp when I was in Afghanistan in 2006/2007 as a reporter and there is no slight possibility that he could have been receiving adequate kidney dialysis treatment in this barbaric place, or anywhere close to it.
Effort to Play Down bin Laden's Failing Kidneys
And now quite interestingly, the U.S. government and its media friends are on a silent mission to restructure the thinking of Americans in this regard. The fact that this health condition placed an increasingly heavy burden on the life of this man is widely known.
But those in charge have concocted a new theory that bin Laden never had kidney problems, that the whole thing was a big mistake, an informational error and this is not the case, just trust your instinct. He had failing kidneys in 2001 and that is why he was picked to to wear the bad guy costume of 9/11. He is one more former ally that the U.S. used in its typical rainy day friend approach toward top level political and military relationships. Knowing that the Cold War gripped the world for more than 4 decades, and that my own life was impacted by this for more than 25 years, I think its sort of cool that bin Laden and the others defeated the Soviets who would see their nation undergo great change very quickly.
He was not a good man, nor was he the worst. Usama bin Laden did incredible things to help win the Afghan civil war and defeat the Soviet Union. I personally credit that with the end of Communism; it is fairly obvious but only in a factual way. I am no fan of the reality of the Wahhabi Muslim and I hate the way Saudi Arabia allowed Palestine to go to the wolves and be mostly wiped off the map by Israel. (The fact that Israel has done this for five generations is why they falsely translate the words of Iran's president. He never said 'wipe Israel off the map' but they in fact did and the record bears the proof.)
But I digress. The writer of the new book 'No Easy Day' actually said something far more convincing on CBS News last night:
"He looked way younger than I thought he was going to be. His hair was black".
And that my friends is your smoking gun. I am cutting to the chase; the black beard bin Laden is a long running joke in the online community; the black beard from the guy is placed on cats, all kinds of different people, and this means that the young Americans are way ahead of the older ones and the Internet users are more profoundly aware of reality than their parents in many cases.
Another thing in the news last night was a question for this author of whether or not his fellow SEALs support his efforts and his answer... he said he "has their full support".
This is an extremely interesting story and I can't wait to get the book. But wait, just from the small amount of exposure I have had to this, I noted another key statement from the writer, that it was not a planned assassination:
"It was made clear to us throughout this training, if given the opportunity this is not an assassination."
There is no way it was an easy day.
Now the Navy SEAL team is again doing what it does best: showing courage and honor and respect for truth and I believe that they well know that the man we call bin Laden died long ago, and they were set up to be guys who did something that they did, and yet did not do. I stress again though that they are our American brothers and whether we are against the Afghan war or not, I trust them more than the politicians because warriors are not of the same ilk; not real warriors like the SEALs.
There is no question that we have been lied to about bin Laden. Nobody is expected to find comfort in the idea. I just want my country and its mission to be real, logical and sincere. We have the technology and wealth to live in peace, yet we do not and even our very own best young men and women are sacrificed. Personally, from having covered the Afghan war, I know the Taliban should be defeated. They are a terrorist government at best. All religious governments are wrong in concept, freedom of religion is the only acceptable answer.
But the worst part... Bush was supposed to be the only bad commander-in-chief, and now we can not believe that. As more and more Americans declare that there is hardly any measurable difference between the two major political parties in the U.S., we are dealt this card and our hearts hang low imagining that our first Black President would stoop so low. Maybe he wasn't really aware, we may never know.
However, the present commander and chief lauded the killing which was murder, and he probably did it so that he would have that undeniable support for having bagged bin Laden at reelection time. It was the final 'use' of the bin Laden figure.
A former federal agent came out a couple of months ago and has a very interesting story about the death of bin Laden, however he places the death in more recent years. I still think bin Laden was killed in the attacks on the caves at Tora Bora and I have had a series of conversations with one of the primary operatives during that time, in that region. I would like to believe that the President is not directly involved but I have a hard time finding any logic in the idea.
Oh and as a wrap-up, the Pakistani doctor who helped the U.S. 'find' bin Laden has now reported to officials here that Pakistani Intelligence services (ISI) who William Gomes of Salem-News.com reports about frequently, view the United States as "one of its greatest enemies". What the political positioning in this case is going to lead to, is unknown at this point, however it sure sounds like a reason the U.S. could next view that country not just as an enemy that it strikes indiscriminately with drones, but a future war theatre the war profiteers can view with hungry eyes.
