Buried at sea? I can’t believe people are buying this.
Around the world, misled individuals are celebrating the death of the man blamed for the 9/11 false-flag operation. Many are even thinking it will make a difference to the war on terror. It won’t, of course, because that phantom war will continue until it isn’t needed anymore by the global elite. And that won’t happen until another phoney enemy is in place.
My optimistic side hopes that this lie is so obvious that even those who bought the idea that 9/11 was a terrorist attack might see through it. But that isn’t guaranteed, especially with all the major media in America marching in lockstep.
We’ve seen how the U.S. government turned 9/11 into two wars and an all-out assault on the American Constitution. We’ve watched politicians like George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleeza Rice, and Rudy Giuliani lie through their teeth about what really happened.
In the biggest public relations offensive since George W. Bush vowed to go to the ends of the earth to find Osama bin Laden 10 years ago, the U.S. government is milking the alleged death of their former CIA asset for all it’s worth. We’re supposed to take their word for it that bin Laden is dead and that he had to be buried at sea out of respect for “Islamic law.”
What would have come out of a bin Laden trial? We’ll never know because there was never any chance of that happening, anymore than Lee Harvey Oswald was going to go on trial for the Kennedy assassination.
The New York Times is clearly on board with this propaganda effort. Journalistic standards are absent in this excerpt from a report today on their web site:
“Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the most devastating attack on American soil in modern times and the most hunted man in the world, was killed in a firefight with United States forces in Pakistan on Sunday, President Obama announced.”
There are actually two falsehoods in this short paragraph. One is that bin Laden is proven to be the 9/11 mastermind, the second is that he has been hunted all these years. Even George W. Bush admitted a few years back that they “weren’t that interested” in his whereabouts.
Not only has bin Laden not been convicted, he isn’t even wanted for 9/11. The FBI has him on their “most wanted” list because of the embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998. He is not wanted for 9/11 because – by the admission of the FBI – there is “no hard evidence” that he had anything to do with it.
But we can’t let anything as unimportant as the truth get in the way of the official narrative of 9/11. The real criminals will never be exposed by the major corporate media because they, like the actual perpetrators, have a vested interest in perpetuating the official lie.
The Times article goes on to reinforce the presumption of guilt:
“Bin Laden’s death came nearly 10 years after al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four American passenger jets, crashing three of them into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon outside Washington. The fourth hijacked jet, United Flight 93, crashed into the Pennsylvania countryside after passengers fought the militants.”
The Washington Post, on the other hand, didn’t call him the perpetrator of 9/11, but they certainly did nothing to dispel that impression. They certainly didn’t bother pointing out that the government had no evidence against him.
CNN, on its web site, features an article written by the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, Richard Haass. This organization represents the very elite that really had everything to gain from 9/11. Naturally, the CFR’s point of view has easy access to the media, with another article on the site being penned by a senior vice-president of the CFR, James M. Lindsay.
These writers frame the discussion just the way the elite wants it framed. They pose questions like, “How will this affect al-Qaeda?” and “How did they find him?” And, of course, we focus on the emotional reaction of the public to the news. We hear all about outpourings of patriotism and joy at Ground Zero and at other symbolic locations. And we hear about the bogus war on terror and how it will be affected by this “development.”
The attention is kept off the real questions about how Osama bin Laden was used by the U.S. as the focus of the 9/11 cover story and why it was expedient for him to exit the scene now.
The issue for me isn’t whether bin Laden is really dead or not. For all practical purposes, it doesn’t matter. It only matters how his life – and alleged death – is being used to further the agenda of the global elite and perpetuate the 9/11 lie.
Let’s not be so gullible this time.
