US Knew Where Osama Was Since 2005
By ISRAEL SHAMIR
The unredacted Guantanamo files show clearly that the trail to Abbottabad was known to the US intelligence services at least since 2005, when al-Libi, another Abbottabad dweller, was captured.
Timing is everything. The US President announced killing of Osama bin Laden just as Wikileaks completed its publication of Guantanamo files. Was it coincidence? If not, what was the connection?
An answer to this question is directly connected with the cross and double cross accusations exchanged in the murky world where the intelligence services meet mainstream media.
Publication of the US secret papers, the Guantanamo Files, was done almost simultaneously by two competing media groups.
- One was the Wikileaks of Julian Assange and their partners The Washington Post, The Daily Telegraph, the French Le Monde.
- Another one was The New York Times, The Guardian, the Israeli Haaretz.
Phi Beta Iota: Apart from the presumed fact that Bin Laden actually died in late 2001 and was then “kept alive” as a covert action against the American people, the author provides an absolutely riveting account of how Guantanamo–and Wikileaks–might have played into the fevered minds that thought up the Bin Laden show and–according to our next post–“over-ruled” the President who was reluctant to go along. By the by, although US “covert operations” tend to be fairly stupid, a well-known ruse for influencing presidents is to insert information into puported interrogations and pretend it was extracted. This “political” covert action appears to have been in the planning stages for some time.
