The death of Osama bin Laden – More than meets the eye

On Sunday night the MSM reports President Obama trumpeting Osama bin Laden’s death: “Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan,” Obama said. “A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body.” Bin Laden’s body was shortly thereafter buried at sea, officials said.

OR consider another perspective [—with more to undoubtedly follow in the days to come]:

Paul Craig Roberts writes: “We must take it as more evidence that the US government has unlimited belief in the gullibility of Americans. Think about it. What are the chances that a person allegedly suffering from kidney disease and requiring dialysis and, in addition, afflicted with diabetes and low blood pressure, survived in mountain hideaways for a decade?

“Until the decline of the dollar reached the breaking point, Osama bin Laden, who many experts believe to have been dead for years, was a useful bogyman to use to feed the profits of the US military/security complex.

“Perhaps the precipitous decline in the US dollar in foreign exchange markets has forced some real budget reductions, which can only come from stopping the open-ended wars. … No doubt President Obama is in desperate need of a victory. He committed the fool’s error or restarting the war in Afghanistan, and now after a decade of fighting the US faces stalemate, if not defeat. The wars of the Bush/Obama regimes have bankrupted the US, leaving huge deficits and a declining dollar in their wake. And re-election time is approaching.”

OR it might be timely to recall what the late Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister of Pakistan, mentioned in a BBC interview back in November 2007 that Osama bin Laden was dead. That part of the interview was not broadcast by the BBC and it was not referred to by main stream media.

  1. […] in an interview, former Pakistani president Benazir Bhutto claimed that Omar Sheikh had murdered Osama Bin Laden. […]

  2. For what it’s worth:
    A majority of urban Pakistanis believe that the person killed by US special forces during a raid in the garrison city of Abbottabad was not Osama bin Laden, according to a survey.

    The online survey, conducted by global opinion pollster YouGov and Polis at Cambridge University, revealed that a staggering 66 per cent of Pakistanis think the person killed by US Navy SEALs in a compound about 80 km from Islamabad was not bin Laden.

    YouGov said the survey focused on more educated respondents in the cities of Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore. “The fact that this survey excluded rural and less educated demographic groups actually makes the results more striking,” the organizers of the poll said.
