While much of America celebrated the dramatic killing of Osama bin Laden, the Sept. 11 conspiracy theorists still had questions. For them and a growing number of skeptics, the plot only thickened.
Where was bin Laden’s body? Why was the most wanted mujaheddin on Earth buried in an undisclosed location in the northern Arabian Sea? Why was the news announced mere weeks after President Obama’s campaign kickoff and just days after his birth certificate was released? Why so late on a Sunday night?
. . . . . . .
Alex Jones, a radio personality out of Austin, Tex., who gives voice to the 9/11 Truth Movement, and runs the Web site Infowars.com, sent out a Web headline that screamed, “Red Alert. Inside Sources: Bin Laden Corpse Has Been on Ice for Nearly a Decade.”
The “king of conspiracy,” as he is known by the media, pointed out discrepancies that went instantly viral. He lists FBI officials and counterintelligence leaders from Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan who have said for years that bin Laden was dead. Former Council on Foreign Relations member Steve R. Pieczenik even told Jones on the air in 2002 that bin Laden’s corpse had been dead for months.
“Obama just relaunched his election bid, and nabbing bin Laden is the main kickoff campaign rally.
Phi Beta Iota: The Post has done a fine job of summarizing both current discrepancies and memory of past statements. In the absence of a body subject to trusted forensics, all other evidence must be considered to be doctored–e.g. old photos. Just as the US Government forced an entire crew to be silent on the murderous attack of their ship by Israel, so now can the US Government force an entire phoney mission to pretend to have accomplished something it did not. Just as the US Government lied (935 separate documented lies) to wage an elective war on Iraq, so also can the US Government now tell more lies of convenience. We agree with Alex Jones–this is a campaign event, not a real event. The Underpants Bomber was–in our view–a false flag fabrication. The US Government appears–at the top–to be out of touch with reality, and convinced it can create its own reality.
