There are many loose ends about the last days, and death, of Osama Bin Laden.
The loose ends continue to pile up as time passes. There was an alleged firefight at the compound; so where are the signs of flash grenades? Even the room in which Bin Laden made his last stand had no bullet holes in the wall! As daily videos pour out from the now most famous house in Pakistan one cannot help notice the lack of signs of a firefight at the compound.
The plot thickens when one considers that according to intelligence, Bin Laden needed two dialysis treatments a day for his failing kidneys. There was no evidence of medical equipment in the compound that would suggest such an ill man was being treated for a kidney condition as bad as alleged for Osama Bin Laden. Was he cured through a kidney transplant? When? Who performed the operation and where?
Phi Beta Iota: The US Government generally, and the US Intelligence Community specifically, really do not understand “crowd sourcing” or collective intelligence as it has evolved in accelerated fashion just in pasts two years. The Bin Laden Show is important because it has–no doubt to the surprise of its producers–focused massive distributed eyes and brains on every detail from 9-11 forward. There is no other thing the US Government could have done to mobilize the rest of the world into paying attention to “loose ends.” We pray this is the beginning of transparency, truth, and trust as we go into the future.
