According to the official story, Osama Bin Laden was said to have died after a team of Navy Seals shot him dead during a raid on his safe house in Pakistan on May 1st 2011. This story has been propagandized heavily not just by the mainstream media in America but also in the Hollywood film production Zero Dark Thirty. It is a complete fabrication of reality for many reasons including the fact that Bin Laden was extremely sick in the days before the 9/11 attacks and was widely reported to have died shortly after. Now additional information has come forward revealing that Admiral William McRaven the head of U.S. Special Operations Command ordered that all photos of Bin Laden’s supposed remains should be sent to the CIA or destroyed shortly after a FOIA request for them was submitted. This is just more evidence proving that the so-called raid on Bin Laden’s safe house was nothing more than a circus. There would be no reason to destroy these photos unless this was an intentional cover up.
Bin Laden died in December 2001: Before the raid, every intelligence analyst, geopolitical commentator or head of state worth their salt was on record as stating that Osama Bin Laden was already dead, and that he probably died many years ago, from veteran CIA officer Robert Baer, to former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, to former FBI head of counterterrorism Dale Watson. In addition, back in 2002 Alex Jones was told directly by two separate high level sources that Bin Laden was already dead and that his death would be announced at the most politically opportune moment.
The U.S. government and its media friends are on a silent mission to restructure the thinking of Americans in regard to downplaying Bin Laden’s failing kidneys. 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 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. He was not a good man, nor was he the worst.
Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh shredded Obama’s Big Lie like others before him. Obama’s official narrative “might have been written by (Alice in Wonderland author) Lewis Carroll,” he said. It was a total fabrication. More on his account below.
“Pakistan’s president, Pervez Musharraf, echoed the information…(T)he truth is that Osama bin Laden is dead.”
In 2003, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright told Fox News Channel analyst Morton Kondracke she suspected Bush knew the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden and was waiting for the most politically expedient moment to announce his capture.
The BBC, Fox News and other media sources reported the same information. David Ray Griffin‘s seminal book on the topic titled “Osama Bin Laden: Dead or Alive?” did it best.
He presented “objective evidence and testimonies.” The former includes the following:
Through December 13, 2001, the CIA monitored messages between bin Laden and his associates. Suddenly they stopped.
On December 26, 2001, a leading Pakistani newspaper reported bin Laden’s death. It cited a prominent Taliban official attending his funeral – witnessing his dead body before it was laid to rest.
His was very ill with kidney disease and other ailments. In July 2001, he was treated at the American Hospital in Dubai.CBS News anchor Dan Rather reported that on September 10, 2001 (one day before 9/11), Bin Laden was admitted to a Rawalpindi, Pakistan hospital. CBS report.
In January 2002, Dr. Sanjay Gupta said bin Laden appeared “in the last stages of kidney failure” (according to Griffin) – based on video evidence he saw in late November or early December 2001.
In July 2002, CNN reported the capture of bin Laden’s bodyguards months earlier in February. “Sources believe that if the bodyguards were captured away from bin Laden, it is likely the most-wanted man in the world is dead,” it said.
Washington offered a $25 million reward for information leading to bin Laden’s capture or killing. No one came forward to claim it. More on this below.
Testimonial evidence Griffin cited included influential “people in a position to know” saying bin Laden died in December 2001 including:
- Pakistan President Musharraf;
- FBI counterterrorism head Dale Watson;
- Oliver North saying, “I’m certain that Osama is dead…and so are all the other guys I stay in touch with;”
- Afghanistan President Karzai;
- Israeli intelligence saying supposed bin Laden messages were fake; and
- Pakistan’s ISI “confirm(ing) the death of…Osama bin Laden (and) attribut(ing) the reasons behind Washington’s hiding (the truth) to the desire of (America’s hawks) to use the issue of al Qaeda and international terrorism to invade Iraq.”
In October 2008, former CIA case officer Robert Baer told National Public Radio when asked: “Of course he’s dead.”
In March 2009, former Foreign Service officer Angelo Codevilla published an American Spectator article titled “Osama bin Elvis“, saying:
“Seven years after (his) last verifiable appearance among the living, there is more evidence of Elvis’s presence among us than for his.”
Griffin explained today’s advanced technology can create fake messages and videos able to fool most people.
Pre-May 2011 claims about “bin Laden’s continued existence (weren’t) backed up by evidence,” Griffin explained.
Perpetuating the myth about bin Laden remaining alive until May 2011 remains one of the Big Lies of our time.
It bears repeating. Clear evidence proves he died of natural causes in December 2001. Keeping alive a dead man was done to pursue America’s phony “war on terror.”
So-called “Enemy Number One” was used to stoke fear as pretext for post-9/11 imperial wars on one country after another to this day.
Griffin hoped his book would help shorten America’s wars. They rage endlessly. Don’t expect Hersh’s article to change things.
The official White House account of bin Laden’s death was totally “false,” said Hersh. His version of events differs markedly from Griffin’s explained above. Most important is both explanations and others expose the official Big Lie – hype used as justification for America’s war on terror, naked aggression against one country after another by any standard.
Hersh said the May 2011 bin Laden operation began in August 2010 after a former senior Pakistani (ISI) intelligence official offered information on his location in return for the $25 million reward Washington promised leading to his death or capture.
Claiming he was in Abbottabad under ISI house arrest doesn’t comport with convincing evidence of his December 2001 death.
Saying Obama wanted Osama dead belies his earlier demise. The staged bin Laden killing was hokum – especially with no visuals, corpse, independent proof and shifting official accounts.
Major events are always strategically timed for political reasons. In this case, to boost Obama’s sagging image. It got an immediate bump following the staged event.
It diverted attention from neoliberal harshness, force-fed austerity and protracted homeland Main Street Depression conditions.
They’re evident today in unprecedented levels of borderline/actual/or deep poverty, unemployment or underemployment, homelessness, hunger and overall deprivation in the world’s richest country.
It continued post-9/11 fear-mongering to further Washington’s imperial agenda – featuring one direct or proxy war of aggression after another against nations threatening no others.
So-called DNA evidence claimed to prove bin Laden’s death 12 hours after the staged Abbottabad incident was fake.
Experts explain DNA identification takes days to complete – impossible in hours, especially in a location with no professional lab or skilled personnel to conduct it.
Convincing evidence revealed about the alleged May 2011 bin Laden killing proves the official White House account was fabricated – one of many of Obama’s Big Lies.
Draw your own conclusions. Dead men tell no tales.
False & Changing Narrative About the Raid: The official narrative of how the raid unfolded completely collapsed within days of its announcement. First there had been a 40 minute shootout, then there was no shootout and just one man was armed, first Bin Laden was armed then he was not, first Bin Laden used his wife as a human shield and then he did not. First the compound was described as a “$1 million dollar mansion” then it turned out to be a rubbish-strewn dilapidated compound that was worth less than a quarter of that. Almost every single aspect of the official narrative has changed since Obama first described the raid last Sunday as the White House struggles to keep its story straight.
Below is a blurb on this new information from the Marine Corps Times.
A 2014-released email via FOIA shows that 11 days after the killing of terror leader Osama bin Laden in 2011, the U.S. military’s top special operations officer ordered subordinates to destroy any photographs of the al-Qaida founder’s corpse or turn them over to the CIA.
The email was obtained under a freedom of information request by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch. The document, released Monday by the group, shows that Adm. William McRaven, who heads the U.S. Special Operations Command, told military officers on May 13, 2011, that photos of bin Laden’s remains should have been sent to the CIA or already destroyed. Bin Laden was killed by a special operations team in Pakistan on May 2, 2011.
McRaven’s order to purge the bin Laden material came 10 days after The Associated Press asked for the photos and other documents under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act. Typically, when a freedom of information request is filed to a government agency under the Federal Records Act, the agency is obliged to preserve the material sought — even if the agency later denies the request.
On May 3, 2011, the AP asked Special Operations Command’s Freedom of Information/Privacy Act Division office for “copies of all e-mails sent from and to the U.S. government account or accounts” of McRaven referencing bin Laden. McRaven was then vice admiral.
The establishment has tried to justify this cover up by claiming that McRaven was attempting to conceal operational methods by having these photos destroyed. This is of course complete and utter nonsense as the photo of a dead body would reveal no specific operational methods. What would it reveal? That the U.S. military uses firearms to shoot people?
As even mainstream journalists began to cast suspicion on the official narrative behind the raid, the media reported that Al-Qaeda itself had confirmed every detail of Obama’s address to the the nation. However, the conduit for such a claim was in fact an organization called SITE, which is a notorious Pentagon propaganda front run by the daughter of an Israeli spy that has been caught on numerous occasions releasing fake cartoonish “Al-Qaeda” videos at the most politically expedient times for both the Bush and Obama administrations. The SITE organization is nothing more than a contractor for the U.S. government, receiving some $500,000 a year annually from Uncle Sam, and yet the corporate media instantly swallowed and regurgitated the claim that “Al-Qaeda” had confirmed the official story after SITE directed them to an anonymous posting on an Islamic website.
Bin Laden Dumped in the Sea? The alleged body of Bin Laden was hastily dumped in the sea to prevent any proper procedure of identification. The White House claimed this was in accordance with normal Islamic burial rituals, however numerous Muslim scholars all over the globe disputed this claim, pointing out that Muslims can only be buried at sea if they die at sea. While the White House claimed that Bin Laden’s death on May 1st was proven by DNA and facial recognition evidence, such proof was never released for public scrutiny and the Obama administration refused to release photos of Bin Laden’s dead body, suggesting a cover-up.
Consider this: The Obama regime claims to have given bin Laden a proper Muslim burial at sea from an aircraft carrier, the Carl Vinson, named after a U.S. Representative from Georgia who served in the House for more than 50 years and is known as “the father of the two-ocean Navy.” The aircraft carrier has approximately 6,000 personnel. From emails that sailors sent home to family and friends, none witnessed the sea burial of bin Laden.
When the story of the emails got out, Washington quickly announced that bin Laden’s burial was conducted in secret and that no one but a few officers were involved.
Think about this for a minute. First of all, here again is a massive victory over the forces of terrorism being kept from sailors whose moral it would have raised. Why keep a moral-boosting victory over terrorist evil from the crew of a deployed warship? What was achieved by the secrecy?
Why give up the photography of such an important American victory that could so well stimulate patriots’ worship of Obama? It makes no sense whatsoever.
Second, do you really believe that an at-sea burial can be conducted on a ship with 6,000 personnel with watches being kept, with sailors on deck performing a variety of necessary functions, and no one saw? I mean, really! 6,000 people on one ship, and no one saw? Were they all locked in their bunks?
Obama wouldn’t have missed the opportunity. In fact, he even faked a ‘situation room’ publicity photo to lead the American people to believe he was in charge during the biggest moment of his presidency. Unfortunately, it was all a hoax.
Fake Situation Room Photo Op: Despite the fact that the White House released “situation room” photos which purported to show Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and the rest of Obama’s security staff watching the raid which killed Bin Laden live, it was later admitted by CIA director Leon Panetta that Obama could not have seen the raid because the live feed was cut off before the Navy SEALS entered the compound. The photos were described by many as having “historical significance,” forming a “captivating” record of Obama’s greatest success and being the “defining moment” of his Presidency. One image showed Hillary Clinton with her hand over her mouth as if witnessing an anxious or crucial moment in the raid. Media reports at the time claimed that the photos represented the moment when “The leader of the free world saw the terror chief shot in the left eye.” However, the photos were staged as a PR stunt for public consumption, nobody in the photos ever saw Bin Laden killed live, nor did they see the Navy SEALS even enter the compound.
Neighbors of the Raided Home All Call BS: Almost every single neighbor that lived near the alleged Bin Laden compound in Abbottabad that was interviewed by news reporters said with absolute certainty that they had never seen Bin Laden and that they knew of no evidence whatsoever to suggest he lived there. Others interviewed say ‘That’s Not Osama bin Laden, That’s My Neighbour‘ or the guy that owned the home that was raided. Since the town is a staging ground for the Pakistani military, which has a training facility situated virtually a stone’s throw away from the alleged Bin Laden compound, residents were required to show ID when they moved into the area. Pakistani troops and anti-terror police in the town refused to confirm that Bin Laden had lived in the house. Barack Obama himself admitted to 60 Minutes that the White House was only 55/45 sure that Osama lived there before the raid and this uncertainty prompted concerns that the US Navy SEALS sent in could have targeted a “prince from Dubai” or some other individual that was not Bin Laden.
A Pakistan news agency reports that the bin Laden raid on Abbottabad was aborted because of a helicopter crash which killed several passengers, believed to be Pashtu speaking Americans. Though this is from a news agency, it is an eyewitness account.
A translation of the video follows:
Anchor: Welcome back, Mohammad Bashir is a resident of Abboottabad’s Bilal Town. Muhammad Bashir might seem an ordinary guy but he is no ordinary guy. Muhammad Bashir lives in front of Osama Ben Laden’s house in Bilal Town Abbottabad. On 2nd of May, Muhammad Bashir was present on his rooftop from where he saw the whole American operation against Osama Ben Laden with his own eyes. Yesterday when our team was present In Bilal Town, Abbottabad, near Osama Ben Laden’s hose, Muhammad Bashir came to us and said, “Sister, I need to tell you something, something that is a burden on my heart and soul”, just listen to what he said.
Bashir: I am going to share something about the Abbottabad operation which till this day nobody else has told you.
Anchor: But Muhammad Bashir was a little afraid too, while talking to me he telephoned hia reletive, Vice President of Jummat-e-Islami, Abdur Razzaq Abasi, watch it
Reporter: Tell me your name and tell me whare do you live
Bashir: Let me first, Let me talk to him one minute, i will give you full interview, full or half?
Reporter: Full Full
Bashir: Let me first talk to him
Reporter: To whom? To Abbasi?
Bashir: yes, to Abbasi
Anchor: Muhammad Bashir told us something that no one said before. So we checked his identity card, we also confirmed that he really lives there, we asked from the senior fellows about him. We were very astonished by his story just see and listen what he said.
Bashir: We were awake, not asleep, a helicopter came, some men came down from that, into that house, then that helicopter went away
Reporter: How many men?
Bashir: 10-12, then that helicopter took rounds of those rear hills, then he came bac…k and when he came bach, two more helicopters arrived, one from the west and other from the north, there was a blast in the first helicopter and it was on fire, we immediately came out, when we reached there, the helicopter was burning, then after about 20 minutes the army and police arrived, they pushed us back, now we are asking that if oama was here then who took him to america because all those men that came in the helicopter died in the blast, now if Osama was in that helicopter he must have died and got burnt in that helicopter too, then how they took him? this is a question of serious concern. America claims they they killed him and picked him up. How they picked him up? This is what we are thinking
Reporter: Was there only one helicopter?
Bashir? Yes the other that came flew away to Mansehra, there was only one that landed the men and came back to pick them but as he was picking them up, it blew away and caught fire.
Reporter: Then were in it when it blew?
Bashir: Yes They were.
Reporter : How you know?
Bashir: We saw it with our own eyes
Reporter: You saw dead man?
Bashir: Yes, dead men,
Reporter: How many?
Bashir: I couldn’t count them because then the compound was on fire. The gate was open, we went in, the army and police hadn’t arrived then, there were some people but they weren’t stopping them. The whole neighborhood has seen that but they are silent now.
Bashir: We saw the helicopter burning, we saw the dead bodies, then everything was removed and now there is nothing
Reporter: How many dead bodies you saw?
Bashir: We couldn’t count them because they were blown into pieces.
The reporter asked Bashir to narrate the story again.
Bashir said we could see the faces of those men but they were speaking pashto. I don’t know whether they were Pakistani or American army or people of agencies, as you know that agency people can speak many languages.
May be they were speaking Pashto so that we consider them Pakistani.
They knocked and banged at our doors and told us not to come out.
I laid down on my rooftop and was watching them.
My kids were calling me, I told them to go to their rooms and let me check whats going on.
The reporter asks Bashir, that when he saw that the helicopter was American what was he thinking then?
Bashir said that he got afraid. He didn’t had in his mind that they will attack that house. He thought that they might have come to attack the Pakistan Army.
The reporter asked so when was your cousin Shamraiz taken away?
Bashir: Shamrez was at our home, as the helicopter exploded, me and many others went out of our homes to see what happened. Shamrez also came out and the gate of the compound was open, we went in, every thing was lying scattered, as it is a huge compound, some body parts were lying here, some there, legs, arms, heads, broken and torn body parts, during that time some part of the helicopter inside, may be the engine or other fuel related part had an explosion so we rushed out. During that time Shamrez was taken away, he is in his home now, but no one is allowed to meet him and i couldn’t get a chance to talk to him later.
Then the anchor says that they had vegetations inside the compound and Shamrez was their gardener. We know that two men Arshad and Tariq used to live there. They had good relations with the neighbors, they used to buy things from the local store. Sometimes imported dates and used to send many things to their neighbors.
Then the reporter is at Abdullah Ben Zubair Mosque, which is the nearest to compound of Osama.
She asks a guy: do you think people would have been glad and happy if they would have ever met Osama?
The guy : Yes, possibly. Because he was a Muslim and he believed in God.
This is the whole story! Every aspect and point translated.
The gentleman being interviewed lives across from the compound. His cousin Sahab Jamrez Khan used to grow vegetables in the compound. He was taken away in all the hullabaloo on tape @10.29 Bashir says he did not see when they wisked his cousin away.
Interviewer asks “Have you spoken to your cousin?”
Bashir “No, I have not seen him yet he in in the house. “They will not let him get out” “They will not let me get in.”
2 other men Arshad Sahib and Tariq Sahib used to go to market to shop for that compound and bought international brand items. Dates, dried meat found in compound. Also food used to come from compound to Bashir’s house Kabulu Pilau and things like that used to be presented to Bashir. They will follow up with more information. In the end the lady is standing in front of Abdullah Bin Zubair mosque. The mosque was with in walking distance of the compound. She asks people if Osama did attend this mosque people would have be happy? The one answered maybe. The other said Osama did “not” live here but he was Muslim and believed in God. Interview ends.
Another thing to note is that Bashir mentioned that we are very “sharif” meaning law abiding honest people. His town was a peaceful place no excitement no murders, fights, and he is unhappy how they have made his town so frightful with all this news. One thing is very clear in this video. Two helicopters hovered never landed. One landed dropped Pashto speaking people on the roof 10-12 of them Helicopter left fo 20 minutes returned to load people in and small blast engine failure fire helicopter parts all over. Body parts arms, legs, head, all over. Pakistani Army/Police came in dispersed crowd. The whole scene is cleaned up totally now. No evidence left to examine.
Bin Laden was protected as a CIA asset…
These are interesting times in which Americans live, especially with the advent of Barack Obama. He says you can keep your doctor and your health insurance plan, but you really can’t. The ACA (ObamaCare) was based on a lie that was confirmed by multiple videos, but cannot be repealed. When Obama draws a red line, it disappears when he abruptly changes his mind. He is the Commander-in-Chief but assumes no responsibility for the deaths in the Benghazi and Fast-and-Furious debacles. He must get vital information for the security of the nation by reading it in the news since he routinely skips his own intelligence briefings.
Obama has surrounded himself with sycophants like Jonathan Gruber, an unabashed narcissist and liar in his own right. Many of these obsequious minions have no experience in government or any other field that would aid them in assisting a President or other government official. These “yes” men and women attend to Obama’s every need to his own deficit; he now seems to make major decisions in a dictatorial and capricious manner.
Because Obama is permitted to act like a spoiled child, who must get his way at all times, the nation is now in a death spiral. Congress is complicit in Obama’s destruction of America since it refuses to take any action to stop him. Subsequently, Obama is allowed to rewrite the Constitution at will and essentially operates as a king or Caesar; he knows there are no consequences for his actions. He proved that when he used a drone to kill Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen condemned to death without a trial or conviction. Some have called al-Awlaki’s killing an extrajudicial murder; he was just one of the many on the White House “kill list.”
The Obama White House has deceived the American public on many fronts including the death of Osama bin Laden. This deception was however sloppy and their error-filled propaganda revealed some blatant inconsistencies. The Pentagon was also guilty of at least two major blunders when it played fast and loose with the facts in the “killing” of bin Laden. This bungling lead to a poorly made video that exposed the truth: The Obama administration did not kill Osama bin Laden.
This book is based on information reported by Net Users, Researchers, Authors and Contributors whom I call NURAACs. This group also includes mainstream news organizations that publish online. These NURAACs have revealed in their web articles, the strange circumstances surrounding the deaths of individuals who are in some way connected to the Obama White House. Among these are Osama bin Laden, Andrew Breitbart; Steve Bridges; and Seal Team Six killed in Afghanistan. These NURAAC articles show inconsistencies in claims made by the Obama White House and other “trusted” organizations.
Of course, this is just one side of Obama’s staggering hubris and his effort to fundamentally change America into a Marxist state and third-world country. He apparently does this in part through the elimination of those he perceives as enemies or those who have betrayed him. Unlike the military officers he fired because they refuse to shoot Americans, NURAACs show he is forced to terminate others he cannot fire, demote or keep quiet. All hail Barackatus Felonious Duplicitous Narcissitus Caesar Augustus, a legend in his own mind.
The US s political discourse and foreign policy in recent years has been based on the assumption that Osama bin Laden is still alive. George W. Bush promised as president that he would get Osama bin Laden dead or alive and has been widely criticized for failing to do so. The US s present military escalation in Afghanistan is said to be necessary to get Osama bin Laden. The news media regularly announce the appearance of new messages from bin Laden. But what if Osama bin Laden died in December 2001 which is the last time a message to or from him was intercepted?
In this book, David Ray Griffin examines the evidence for the claim made by everyone from former CIA agent Robert Baer to Oliver North that bin Laden is surely no longer with us. He analyzes the purported messages from bin Laden and finds that, as many have suspected, they do not provide evidence of bin Laden s existence after 2001. This leads naturally to the question: if Osama bin Laden did indeed die in 2001, how and why have dozens of messages from bin Laden appeared since then?
Griffin s meticulous analysis supports above all one simple and urgent conclusion: if Osama bin Laden is dead, the US should not be using its troops and treasure to hunt him down.
Although The Story of the Year is a work of fiction, its premise – that the raid was pure stagecraft, an elaborate hoax — is based on interviews telecast by the BBC and Pakistani broadcasting companies shortly after the raid. These video interviews, together with news stories from a variety of sources, may be found at web sites identified in the End Notes.
Wade Turnbull is one of eleven U. S. Navy SEALs to survive the May 2011 raid on bin Laden’s Abbottabad, Pakistan compound after twelve other SEALs, including Wade’s best friend, are incinerated when their transport explodes on takeoff for the return trip. As the survivors most inclined to dispute the media spin that all the raiders escaped after deliberately blowing up a crippled helicopter, Wade and fellow-SEAL Jason Russell are dispatched to Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. There they attend POTUS’ May 6 victory celebration before returning to their respective homes where their pregnant wives beseech them to accept the official storyline. Two days later, when the remaining raid participants are killed in another helicopter crash, Wade and Jason find themselves fleeing government operatives who will stop at nothing to bury the truth they can tell.
At his best friend’s funeral, Wade meets veteran war correspondent Kat Rearden who, sniffing a Pulitzer Prize, persuades him to grant her an exclusive story. Wade and Kat soon find their fates intertwined as they race against death to finalize ‘the story of the year.’
