Obama and the media use bin Laden’s ‘death’ to further 9/11 lie


By Craig McKee

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.

  1. I am detecting a weakness here, and within a couple of weeks we observe the steps of the treasonous perpetrators to cover their tracks.

    Step 1. Put a family member of the extended Bush clan onto the judicial bench to review the appeal of April Gallop vs. the Bush Administration.

    Step 2. Have that sham judicial body write in its decision:

    As the sentient world well recalls, on the morning of September 11, 2001, “agents of the al Qaeda terrorist organization hijacked commercial airplanes and attacked the World Trade Center in New York City and the national headquarters of the Department of Defense in Arlington, Virginia.”

    Step 3. Clean up loose ends, like Osama bin Laden.

    Many people in the 9/11 Truth Movement had legitimate doubts regarding whether OBL, with his failing kidneys, was even alive. This perception was not dispelled by govt efforts to put videos and audio recordings of OBL into the public realm.

    Whether or not OBL was dead, his usefulness as an international boogey man had run its course. Take him (or some body) out in a spectacular made-for-Hollywood raid and then bury the evidence at sea.

    In the resulting corporate media circus, they’ll play up for “the sentient world” what they should “recall” about OBL and his “agents of the al Qaeda terrorist organization” and the fairy tale of “hijacked commercial airplanes and [attacks on] the World Trade Center in New York City and the national headquarters of the Department of Defense in Arlington, Virginia.”

    It not only puts an exclamation point on the April Gallop sham decision, but it practically foreshadows what the coordinated propaganda effort will be for the next month.

    What I notice from the passage is an opportunity. If the declarative sentence regarding “agents of the al Qaeda terrorist organization” is proven wrong, it calls into question: “What does the sentient world truly recall? Who told them that? Why?”

    A poorly drawn Batman from a 1970’s era “Scooby-Doo meets Batman” has a great line in this regard. Batman says, “Robin, I think this is a case of mass hypnosis. Did we all really see what we thought we saw?”

    Elias Davidsson makes a very convincing argument regarding there being [PDF] No Evidence of Muslims or “agents of the al Qaeda terrorist organization” attacking us on 9/11.

  2. “Let’s not be so gullible this time.”

    From my wanderings into the normal world of the TV watching population, they are buying it hook, line and sinker. Even those who are anti-American still don’t dig beneath the veneer and actually think. The power of the emotive term “conspiracy theorist” is massive, and nobody wants to be seen to be “gullible” and believe conspiracy theories.

    It takes a huge effort to break free of the mainstream media bubble – people don’t have the time or the inclination to do it. Am I pessimistic about the future? You bet.

  3. This is a total insult to the human race. Bin Laden disappeared a long time ago as the dark side of the CIA and other dark organisations no longer needed him as an excuse to continue their black operations. The only reason they are stating they have killed is to put an official closure on his name.

    It has been proven that 9/11 was an inside job and the perpetrators are the global financial and planetary controllers, (created by stealth).

    Mark my words, in creating this global lie, these evil people will be releasing their next series of their agenda of devastation, more fear tactics and violent take overs. It has been obvious through the recent Arab worlds rebellions that they have started to release their next agenda.

    They will not survive their next onslaught, we humans are too smart for them and they will soon be exposed for what they truly are.

    The good, the light and the love will always succeed. Humans…. rise to the occasion.

  4. Just another note, I live in Canada, the “Obama is dead” notice happened the day before we went into an election in Canada. Because of this announcement, our prime minister (who is right wing and militaristic) was able to get much radio and TV time making statements about creating more ‘security’ in Canada by having a majority parliament….Suffice to say, when people hear about bin Laden, Sept. 11, guess what kicks in, a need for ‘security’! And guess what, our right wing ‘would-be dictator, who has joined in on bombing with the US and also wants to buy fighter jets and change the Canadian landscape from peacekeeper to war-maker…the Conservatives got a big majority.

    And you may say, who even knows about Canada? But guess what? On the day of the Canadian election, Google had a new logo with the Canadian election on it, so it has not gone unannounced. And if they had to pick a day in May, this was a good one on the path for fortress North America.

    1. I don’t know if the timing had anything to do with our election, but the propaganda value of the alleged bin Laden death for the powers that be has been considerable. And we’ll now get to see the real Stephen Harper now that he has a majority government and can do what he wants without caring what the opposition thinks.

      On the positive side, the New Democratic Party (which has a very different philosophy than the Conservatives) had its best result ever. They have now supplanted the Liberals as our Official Opposition. The NDP is the only one of the top three parties that wants Canada out of Afghanistan immediately. They’re also the party that first started universal health care.

      My hope is that over the next four or five years Canadians will become so disgusted with Harper and his right-wing gang that they’ll put the NDP in power for the first time ever. One can always hope…

  5. The argument that gruesome pictures of OBL’s death will inflame the Arab world are a bit inflated; as if the US invasion and its tactics didn’t already do that. A picture isn’t going to put them over the top.

    I will be surprised if they release pictures of OBL’s death. Why? Complete wild-ass speculation on my part here: those pictures might have some significant deviations from the OBL of videos from 2002 on, like in the amount of gray in his beard, etc. This could inflame — not the Arabs but — true patriotic Americans when it is pointed out how the govt duped us.

    They killed an unarmed OBL? Without as much as even a wife used as a shield or weapon? And they killed the courier and a son?

    What would a captured and living OBL have said at his trial? The trial that the US could not afford to have. The boogey man served his purpose, and having him (or his courier) talk would shoot holes in the myth.

    1. Absolutely. It’s Lee Harvey Oswald all over again. And both are now described as being guilty of their respective “crimes” without so much as a criminal charge.
