Bin Laden Is Dead

The New York Times and Fox News are both reporting White House sources as saying Osama bin Laden is dead. President Barack Obama is scheduled to make a statement any minute now. I'm not impressed. There hasn't been any evidence he has been behind any terrorist attacks for many years if he ever really was behind the terrorist attacks as we've been told. Supposedly he was killed by a U.S. bomb Navy Seal team after President Obama authorized the operation over a week ago. [Explosion at compound explained as U.S. forces blowing up a helicopter at the compound due to mechanical problems]. DNA tests supposedly made a match. For all we know, the man has been dead for many years. I frankly don't believe anything our government tells us about this boogey man who was an agent of our own CIA at one time. We're only being told this news now to deflect our attention away from the fact that the entire Middle East is descending into total chaos as our government aids radicals in overthrowing dictators so Muslim extremists can take over the entire region and control much of the world's oil and destroy our country economically by running up oil prices. This weekend, NATO forces set out to assassinate Libya's Giddafi. While failing to kill him, they apparently succeeded in killing his son and several of his grandchildren. Today, the U.S. embassy in Libya was attacked and burned by angry mobs. CNN is reporting he was living at a mansion outside of Islamabad, Pakistan, the country that supposedly was aiding us in his capture for the past decade. How convenient. I don't know how many times I've heard so-called talking head experts on cable news broadcasts speculate he was living comfortably in the Pakistani capital city. This is nothing but a major effort to manipulate us into believing our government has done something good after the past decade of spending us into bankruptcy fighting this War on Terrorism. The world is no safer, and we've been economically destroyed. The New World Order got what they wanted. What did you get?

UPDATE: Here is Sen. Richard Lugar's statement on the death of bin Laden:

The reported death of Osama bin Laden is welcome news, but it in no way eliminates the threat from the terrorism he espoused.  This is another reminder that Americans cannot hide from global affairs.  Americans must continue to be vigilant to ensure that terrorist groups and rouge states do not obtain weapons of mass destruction, a goal that I and many other Americans have sought for 20 years. 
And here's the rundown of the affluent home where bin Laden has been living comfortably laughing at us as we've poured more than a trillion dollars the past decade in the faux effort to track him down:

The trail that led the CIA to Osama bin Laden began with his most trusted courier. It had taken the CIA years to discover first his name and then the home where he was hiding bin Laden. But it took only 40 minutes on Sunday for US special forces to kill both the courier and bin Laden.

Contrary to repeated speculation over the last decade that bin Laden was living in one of the remote tribal areas of Pakistan or even across the border in Afghanistan, the al-Qaida leader was found in an affluent suburb of Pakistan's capital, Islamabad.

Senior US administration officials, briefing journalists in a late-night teleconference, said that after 9/11 the CIA chased various leads about bin Laden's inner circle, in particular his couriers. One of these couriers came in for special attention, mentioned by detainees by his nom de guerre and said to be one of the few couriers bin Laden trusted.

But officials said they were initially unable to identify him but finally did four years ago. They did not disclose his name to reporters on Sunday night.

Two years ago, the CIA found the rough location where the courier and his brother lived in Pakistan, and on August last year they narrowed it down to a compound, in an affluent area about 35 miles north of Islamabad.

They realised immediately this was no normal residence. The walls were 12- to 18ft high, topped with barbed wire. Access to the compound was severely restricted. The main part of the residence was three storeys high but had few windows. It was valued at about $1m but had no phone or internet connection. It was a custom-built terrorist hideaway.

Adding to their suspicions were that the two brothers had no known source of income. The CIA learned too that there was a family living with them and that this family matched bin Laden's.

By February, the CIA was confident this was bin Laden's likely hiding place and in March Barack Obama began chairing a series of five national security meetings. At the last of these, on 29 April, he gave the order to mount an operation.

The US military began planning. One of the senior administration officials said: "The high walls made this a dangerous operation." It was a surgical operation, he said, carried out by a small team and lasted only 40 minutes.

Bin Laden and three males were killed, including the courier and his brother, and bin Laden's son. Bin Laden resisted the US force and was killed in a firefight, an official said.

One woman was injured while, an official said, she was being used as a shield by one of the men, and two other women were also injured.

The US force ran into a problem with one of their helicopters which had to be abandoned, but only after being destroyed by explosives set by the American troops.
The old, dying man resisted and so he was shot in the head by Navy seals? Yeah, right. Like they ever had any attention of producing a live body of the man. The U.S. government ordered his body dumped at sea. No public viewing of it, naturally. We'll have to rely on photos the government produces for that proof.

Upon hearing the news, it appears that your thoughts parallel mine, meanwhile the sheep celebrate in the streets, believing everything the kleptocracy tells them, as if they have no reason to ever lie to us. When, in fact, they have ever reason to lie to us, and they do, day after day.


The first thing I thought when I heard the announcement last night is why are they now finally admitting he is dead? How are they planning to use this?

If he died of kidney failure as the foreign press says, that would deny the great America the opportunity to take credit for killing the boogey-man.

We have to justify the trillions we spend on war, afterall. I can see why they would not tell us he died of natural causes.

It's propaganda, a CIA boogey-man psychological operation.

They're calling this a big victory for the U.S., but everything bin Laden was predicting would happen to the U.S. economically has come true. It looks to me like he got the last laugh and was the real winner in this farcical cat and mouse game we've been playing with him for the past two decades.
