Bin Laden’s ‘Execution’: The Missing Pieces

Information upholds Seymour Hersh’s May 2015 observations

Submitted by Nauman Sadiq

According to Seymour Hersh, the original plan of the Obama Administration regarding the disclosure of the execution of Osama bin Laden to the press was that he had been killed in
hersh-dna drone strike in the Hindu Kush mountains on the Afghan side of the border. But things didn’t go as planned during the operation as a Black Hawk helicopter crashed in Bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound and the whole town now knew that an operation was underway.

Therefore, that original plan was abandoned and the Obama Administration had to go public within hours of the operation with a hurriedly cooked up story. This explains so many contradictions and loopholes in the official version; the biggest being that the US Special Ops conducted a raid deep inside the Pakistani territory on a garrison town without the approval of the Pakistani authorities.

Moreover, according to AFP, Pakistan’s military sources have confirmed that there was a defector who had met several times with Jonathan Bank, the CIA’s station chief in Islamabad, as a consequence of which the Pakistani intelligence disclosed his name to the newspapers and he had to leave Pakistan in December 2010 because his cover had been blown.

Seymour Hersh posited in his report [1] on the Bin Laden operation in Abbottabad that Saudi Arabia had asked Pakistan as a favor to hide Bin Laden because he was a scion of a powerful Saudi-Yemeni Bin Laden Group and it was simply not possible for the Saudis to hand him over to the US.

Furthermore, it should be remembered that the Pakistani military and Saudi Arabia have very deep and institutionalized links: thousands of Pakistani retired and serving army officers work on deputations in the Gulf states; furthermore, during the ‘80s and ‘90s Saudi Arabia lacked an efficient intelligence set-up, and the Pakistani ISI virtually played the role of Saudi Arabia’s foreign intelligence service.

But once the Pakistani walk-in colonel told the then-CIA station chief in Islamabad, Jonathan Bank, that a high-value al Qaeda leader is hiding in an ISI’s safe house in Abbottabad, right next to the Pakistani Military Academy, and after that when the CIA obtained further proof in the form of Bin Laden’s DNA through the fake vaccination program carried out by Dr. Shakil Afridi, then it was no longer possible for the Pakistani security establishment to deny the whereabouts of Bin Laden.

In his report Seymour Hersh has already postulated various theories that why it was not possible for Pakistan to simply hand Bin Laden over to the US. Here let me only add that in 2011 Pakistan had a US-friendly, People’s Party’s government. It is quite plausible that the then army chief, Ashfaq Pervez Kayani, and the ISI head, Shuja Pasha, might still have had strong objections to the US special ops carrying out an operation in the garrison town of Abbottabad.

But the Pakistan’s civilian administration under the then President Asif Ali Zardari, and especially the disgraced Pakistani ambassador to the US, Husain Haqqani, must have pressed upon the army chief and the ISI head to order the Pakistan Air Force to stand down during the operation. Ambassador Haqqani’s role in this saga ruffled the feathers of Pakistani security establishment to an extent that they later filed a case against Haqqani regarding his memo to Admiral Mike Mullen [2] and eventually Ambassador Haqqani had to resign.

In his latest news story [3] Greg Miller of Washington Post posits that Mark Kelton, the CIA station chief in Islamabad at the time of Bin Laden operation in Abbottabad, was poisoned by the ISI. The only purpose of this leak, five years after the operation, seems to be to discredit Seymour Hersh’s report in which he has proven beyond doubt that the Pakistani security establishment fully cooperated with the US during the operation. It is not a coincidence that this news story has been released only within a month of the publication of Seymour Hersh’s book, “The Killing of Osama bin Laden.”

osama-dead-aliveHere it should be remembered that Mark Kelton succeeded Jonathan Bank in January 2011, after the latter’s name was outed by the ISI. Hersh has mentioned in his report that the Pakistani walk-in colonel had met Jonathan Bank and told the latter that Bin Laden was hiding in a compound in Abbottabad under the custody of ISI. But in order to be sure, the US needed further proof; that’s why they arranged that vaccination program run by Dr. Shakil Afridi to get Bin Laden’s DNA samples.

The original deal between the Obama and Zardari Administrations was that the story would be made public a week after the operation, as mentioned by Hersh in his report, that Bin Laden has been killed/captured in the Hindu Kush mountains on the Afghan side of the border. The crashed Black Hawk in Bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound, however, made that impossible. The Obama Administration had to improvise within hours of the operation with a hurriedly made up story. This explains so many contradictions and loopholes in the official version of the story, as I already mentioned.

Although, Seymour Hersh has claimed in his version of the story that the Pakistani military authorities were also on-board months before the operation; let me clarify, however, that in my opinion only the Pakistani civilian administration under the Zardari-led and US-friendly, People’s Party were on-board; and the military authorities, who were instrumental in harboring Bin Laden and his family for five years, were intimated only at the eleventh hour.

A Coordinated Operation between Pakistan and the US

Operation Neptune Spear by the US Navy Seals in which Osama Bin Laden was killed on 2 May 2011 was a fully coordinated Pakistan-US operation. A lot of online material is available regarding the incident and the Pakistan government has also released the Abbottabad Commission’s Report (which is still classified) but the whole episode and its reporting sheds light on the complicity, sensationalism and spin-doctoring by the mainstream media.

By “coordinated operation” I mean that the operation was carried out in full coordination with the Pakistani Air Force and ground forces which secured the area around Bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound on the night of the operation. The Navy Seals allegedly flew from the Jalalabad airbase in Afghanistan in two ‘modified’ Black Hawk helicopters and landed in Bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound 90 minutes later. Naturally the flight-path must have been from west-to-east.

A few points to note here:

Firstly, by ‘modified’ Black Hawks the corporate media spin-doctors imply a quieter stealth helicopter; but no matter what kind of technology is employed a helicopter is a very noisy aircraft, that’s why we don’t see any commitment of resources for developing stealth helicopters, á la the stealth jets like F-35. Moreover, even if it is assumed that the Black Hawks were stealth helicopters, then what about the Chinook that took Navy Seals back to their base in Afghanistan after one of the Black Hawks crashed in Bin Laden’s compound; was that also a stealth version of the Chinooks?

Secondly, we are not sure whether the Black Hawks actually flew from Jalalabad in Afghanistan to Abottabad in Pakistan; because Pakistan had leased several airbases in Balochistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa provinces to the joint US Air Force and CIA drone operations, like the Shamsi Airfield for instance, from October 2001 until the Salala incident in November 2011 in which 28 Pakistani soldiers were killed by the US forces based in Afghanistan and the relations between Pakistan and the US reached their all-time low. Bear in mind, however, that the Bin Laden operation took place in May 2011 when CIA still had bases inside Pakistan.


Assuming that the corporate media’s narrative is correct and that the Black Hawks actually flew from Jalalabad to Abbottabad (west-to-east) in 90 minutes, in that case they had to fly through the airspace of some of Pakistan’s most strategic military and air-force installations.

The naïve audience of the mainstream media knows very little about Pakistan; it’s a fact that the Af-Pak border region is the lawless wild west of Pakistan; the US forces can fly drones there because it is totally unprotected on the ground as well as its air-space. This perhaps is the reason why they readily believed the lie which was fed to them about the Osama Bin Laden Operation.

But the area between Attock, Abbottabad and Islamabad is Pakistan’s most sensitive and heavily militarized area.

If we take a cursory look at some of the strategic locations from west-to-east that lie in the alleged flight path of the Black Hawks:

First, there is Pakistan Air Force’s Kamra airbase near Attock which is used for manufacturing JF-17 Thunders in collaboration with China.

Second, one of Pakistan’s biggest ordnance factory (POF Wah) which employs over 40,000 personnel is located in Wah cantonment which is only 60 kms south-west of Abbottabad.

Third, just opposite to the Wah cantonment is the newly built Air Weapons Complex (AWC) which is so sensitive and secretive that even the locals don’t know what kind of ballistic missiles are being manufactured there.

Fourth, Heavy Industries Taxila (HIT) another military site used for building battle tanks and APCs under the direct supervision of Pakistan Armed Forces.

And last but not the least, the Havelian ammunition depot, which is only a stone’s throw away from Abbottabad.

Looking at all this data, if some chopper no matter how ‘modified’ or stealthy it might have been, passes through the air-space above, or anywhere near all those military sites, Pakistan must have the most inept armed forces in the world to let that happen.

Apart from the aforementioned sites, Pakistan’s Military Academy Kakul; Pakistan Air Force installations in Kalabagh, Nathiagali; and several Pakistan Army’s regiment centers are also located in Abbottabad. In fact the whole city is a garrison town like Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

For all these reasons, I fully endorse Seymour Hersh’s view that Operation Neptune Spear was a coordinated operation between the Pakistani and the US Armed Forces.

  1. Egypt Air: The Missing Pieces

    “One of the air hostesses on EgyptAir flight MS804 posted a photo of herself walking away unscathed from a plane crash on Facebook just after she joined the airline. According to her social media page, 27-year-old Samar Ezz Eldin joined EgyptAir in May 2014. The picture shows her smartly dressed, emerging from the sea pulling a suitcase while a plane crashes into the ocean behind her”.

      1. It is being telegraphed to the public in an obscenely transparent way. They are basically saying that they have no respect for the critical thinking skills or potential blowback from the sheeple.

        1. I’ve been arguing re: the Apollo Missions today and I can tell you by the responses I got from pro-NASAphyles people are apparently severely dumbed down, and have lost the ability to think critically

  2. I always find it comical and puzzling when some folks quote “Seymour Hersh” or other supposedly investigative journalist and their narrative and never ask the questions ?
    Why do these men/women still have their careers ? Or continue to have the “Beltway” connections ?
    Was there really an Osama Bin Laden ?
    And was he actually killed or died in this operation and buried at sea ?

    Another brain-dead Navy Seal from Texas loses profits for thinking he’s not a slave to his DOD masters.

    Deception is promoted reality…

  3. We smart people on this site all know the real Osama died of kidney failure in 2001, as reported by the prime minister if India right before she was assassinated.
    Maybe this guy was one of the doubles used to create the fake videos?

    1. That’s right. Read “Gatekeeper or Dupe?” on this site, Mr. Sadiq. Then ask yourself which of these you are.

    2. I think Seymour is getting senile or he is just an old whisper of the man he used to be, trying to co-op the alternative media with a middle of the road spin about Bin Laden, which, if he was really on top of his game, he would have known that dude been dead, and everyone else would have known too. They are all players in this charade.
      Unfortunately for our dear beloved President, he was put up to it to hide that whole whooplah about his forged birth certificate, which I am certain he was scratching his head, saying, you want me to do what? You want me to say what? He looked so clueless in the situation room as they watched some fake video.
      Another slight of hand that not even he saw coming. Too bad, so sad. Being a pawn in the Globalist chess game must really be troubling for any soul.
      As for this journalist, well, it’s becoming increasingly clear that we will need an alternative to the alternative media these days. Sorta like a para-alternative media as these folks are beginning to parrot the “official story” and the “official facts” which is starting to be very, very troubling indeed.

      1. That is very troubling to see Hersch follow the establishment line,
        very disappointing,
        if I am not mistaken the Navy Seal Team that did the extraction was also blown out of the sky,
        dead men tell no tales,
        I am really surprised the Navy Seals haven’t exacted revenge for this treason,
        they must know this wasn’t an accident

  4. I’m telling you Mick,
    I brought up the fact that everything on the Apollo Mission ran on batteries, suits, Rover, LM, etc., as best as I can determine, with no one really challenging that, imagine the amps necessary for this Mission-instruments, telemetry, life-support, cooling and heating in a temperature range from -250 to 250 F, can you imagine the required energy for this part of the mission alone? I can’t keep my cell phone battery charged for 8 hours, and these guys went to the moon with 1960s battery technology,
    the only reply I really got was that I was a conspiracy theorist,
    along with a number of other interesting adverbs

  5. As I understand it from my Pakistani sources the OBL killed in Pakistan was a body double. A helicopter crashed and the ruse was exposed. A number of SEALs subsequently died to keep the secret.

  6. How many times can one man die? The disputed killing of Osama Bin Laden | OffGuardian

    “Are the recent revelations by Seymour Hersh the final truth about Osama Bin Laden’s death or just another layer of fog and confusion in the already over-contested, under-documented and bewildering question of post-911 OBL and “his” organisation, Al Qaeda?

    It’s timely to remember that Bin Laden’s ill-health and subsequent death from kidney failure was widely reported back in 2001/2.”

    So, in 2002 there was a growing conviction in many quarters that OBL was dead – though exactly how he had died was apparently open to free interpretation. Possibly lung disease or failing kidneys, possibly killed by US military action. But dead either way. The claim was made again, in 2007, by Benazir Bhutto, former Prime Minister of Pakistan. Interviewed by David Frost just seven weeks before her assassination, she claimed in a throwaway but completely unambiguous remark that OBL had been “murdered” some years earlier.

    In fact by 2009, the idea that OBL had died in the early 2000s had become so mainstream it was even reported in the UK Daily Mail, which, on September 11 2009 quoted two US academics on their own doubts about the continued survival of Osama:

    The theory first received an airing in the American Spectator magazine earlier this year when former U.S. foreign intelligence officer and senior editor Angelo M. Codevilla, a professor of international relations at Boston University, stated bluntly: ‘All the evidence suggests Elvis Presley is more alive today than Osama Bin Laden.’
    Prof Codevilla pointed to inconsistencies in the videos and claimed there have been no reputable sightings of Bin Laden for years (for instance, all interceptions by the West of communications made by the Al Qaeda leader suddenly ceased in late 2001).
    Prof Codevilla asserted: ‘The video and audio tapes alleged to be Osama’s never convince the impartial observer,’ he asserted. ‘The guy just does not look like Osama. Some videos show him with a Semitic, aquiline nose, while others show him with a shorter, broader one. Next to that, differences between the colours and styles of his beard are small stuff.’
    There are other doubters, too. Professor Bruce Lawrence, head of Duke University’s religious studies’ department and the foremost Bin Laden expert, argues that the increasingly secular language in the video and audio tapes of Osama (his earliest ones are littered with references to God and the Prophet Mohammed) are inconsistent with his strict Islamic religion, Wahhabism.
    He notes that, on one video, Bin Laden wears golden rings on his fingers, an adornment banned among Wahhabi followers.

    Is it remotely possible, even after all the hoopla and celebration, that Osama Bin Laden did die of kidney failure/lung disease/US military action/murder in 2001-2? And all the rest was simply a perfect storm of convenience, confusion and narratives taking on lives of their own?

    Was Bin Laden’s Death Planned to Distract From Obama’s Birth Certificate?

    “See, Osama Bin Laden couldn’t have been killed in Abbottabad, since he’s actually been dead for “nearly a decade”. He was already dead in December 2001 when he released that video claiming responsibility for 9/11: It was actually a “fat Bin Laden look alike.” (Would love to see the Craigslist casting call for that gig.) I mean, a burial at sea? Really? And we’re supposed to believe you’re not releasing pictures because you don’t want to offend people or something? Laughable.

    So, why would Obama choose last night to perpetrate this massive hoax on the entire world? “What are they breaking the news to hide?” asks the conspiracy theorists at abovetopsecert. Well, insane, unstoppable birther Orly Taitz has an idea: Today there is a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals hearing regarding one her many joke lawsuits challenging Obama’s presidential legitimacy. No doubt, Barack Obama wanted to bury the news that Orly Taitz was going to produce undeniable evidence that Obama’s long-form birth certificate was a fraud, written with the wrong kind of pen or something!”

    Taitz writes:

    Our court hearing is scheduled to start in just a few hours. Major networks are supposed to be there with cameras rolling. Suddenly, Obama announces that the body of Osama Bin Ladin (sic) is found and we need to prepare for a possible terrorist act. Perfect timing!

    Ho Hum. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel.

  7. Is this like a script or new plot for “Zero Dark Thirty, Part 2”? This can’t be serious. Oh, wait: maybe this is “Groundhog Day Again(Bill Murray replaced by Osama bin Tim Osman Laden)”. No I get it: this is a new motion picture called “Osama: Dead again and again and again and again…for The Very First Time, Part 3”. What a joke. Stories like this coming out right around the time Congress is promoting the red herring called The 28 missing/classified/redacted pages of the completely discredited 9/11 commission report that even the co commissioner chairs disavowed…c’mon. We’ve better comic books to read.

    1. Rico:Yes,”Nothing became him more in life than the leaving of it.” (again,and again,and again.)

  8. Something’s a little off with this retouching. If Dr. Pieczenik is to be believed (and I think he is), then Bin Laden could not have been killed in 2011 because he had died long before of Marfan syndrome.

    This article does, however, ask some important questions. I just cannot agree with the conclusions. I believe something else is up…in other words, it’s something other than the official story (but it’s not this version either).

    Quite frankly, the above story sounds even less plausible than the fairy tale most of us know to be untrue.

    I regret that I am not thoroughly informed on the particulars of this strange media spectacle.

    Perhaps Dr. Pieczenik has information in addition to having seen Bin Laden’s medical records?

    I’d love to hear him on Real Politik again.

    Thank you,


  9. In light of Sy Hersh’s claim that the raid on Osama bin Laden in 2011 is “one big lie,” here’s an overview of evidence in support of an alternative narrative: bin Laden died in December 2001 in Tora Bora from a lung complication as a result of kidney failure starting at least since mid-2000.(Thanks to “BirthdaySuit11” this info)

    All sources are from the mainstream media, many of which have since been “scrubbed” from the internet.
    2000 to September 2001: Reports Emerge of bin Laden Dying From Kidney Disease

    In March 2000 the Chicago Tribune reports that an Afghan witness and “Western intelligence official” say bin Laden is suffering from severe kidney and liver failure. Link:

    This story was also picked up by CBS News in 2000, who outright lead with the title that “Bin Laden Reported to be Dying” from “kidney disease.”

    In July 2001, the South Asia Analysis Group reports: “Bin Laden, who suffers from renal deficiency, has been periodically undergoing dialysis in a Peshawar military hospital with the knowledge and approval of the Inter-Services Intelligence, (ISI) if not of Gen.Pervez Musharraf himself.” Link:
    September to November 2001: bin Laden is Trapped in Afghanistan, Unable to Receive Kidney Treatments

    In September 2001, PBS’ Frontline interviews the former general counsel for the CIA, mentioning reports from 1998 that the DEA found out Osama bin Laden was undergoing kidney dialysis with a doctor in Peshwar. They mention further that the DEA wanted to poison bin Laden through his dialysis machine, but the CIA allegedy rejected this due to the ban on assassinations.

    Link: In November 2001, The Guardian is reporting that French intelligence officials say bin Laden was flown to Dubai for kidney treatment in July of 2001, where he also met with several CIA agents and the head of Saudi intelligence. This story is also picked up by several French newspapers. Link: In his first interview since 9/11, in November 2001 bin Laden talks to a Pakistani newspaper and claims that his “kidneys are all right” and denies visiting a hospital in Dubai the previous year (note that he may have visited one in Pakistan). In the same interview he also asserts, clearly lying, that he has “nuclear weapons.” Link:

    December 2001: bin Laden is Dead, Buried in Afghanistan In December of 2001, the New York Times reports on “high-level murmurings that bin Laden is dead.” Link: That same day,citing a Taliban source, Fox News reports that bin Laden has died due to an “untreated lung complication” from kidney disease. About 30 “close associates” reportedly attended bin Laden’s funeral in the Tora Bora region of Afghanistan. A source concludes that the U.S. government and other forces are in a “mad search operation” but will never be able to locate the now-dead bin Laden, buried in an unmarked location. Link:

    Late December 2001 to March 2002: bin Laden’s “Death Video” is Released In late December of 2001, after reports of bin Laden’s funeral, a new video appears of a gaunt, sickly Osama bin Laden. The London Telegraph reports, verbatim: “The recording was dismissed by the Bush administration yesterday as sick propaganda possibly designed to mask the fact the al-Qa’eda leader was already dead.” One aid further concludes that the video was created earlier in the event bin Laden is dead, who by December of 2001 was so heavily surrounded he would have been unable to escape to obtain kidney dialysis. Link:

    At this time CBS news also runs a story on bin Laden receiving kidney disease treatments in Pakistan the week before 9/11. Link:Osama bin Laden Near Death in 2002 (from Dan Rather CBS); US Government bin Laden LIE In January of 2002, The Guardian reports that the president of Pakistan speculates that bin Laden is now dead of untreated kidney disease based on video and photographs of a gaunt-looking bin Laden. Link:

    In January of 2002, based on his analysis of video and photographs of bin Laden from December 2001, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta says that bin Laden seems to be having renal failure. He notes kidney dialysis is expensive, and suggests bin Laden would need help in obtaining medical treatment. Link:

    In March 2002, the BBC reports on an interview with bin Laden’s wife, who speaks of bin Laden in the past tense, notes his failing kidney and frequent use of pills and other medicines. She says she has not seen her husband since September 2001, but holds out hope that he is still alive: “I feel deep inside me that he is still alive.” She also notes that bin Laden’s wish was to die in Afghanistan and nowhere else: “He never spoke to me about his intention to leave Afghanistan and always wished to die there. He told me once that if he ever left Afghanistan, it would be to meet his Creator.” She also says that bin Laden “always suffered from kidney and stomach pains and that he “told me once that he was going to Pakistan for treatment.” Link:

    In March and April of 2002, U.S. officials downplay the threat of bin Laden, with Rumsfeld even saying the bin Laden threat has been “neutralized.” Even Bush, called out for rarely mentioning bin Laden in 2002, admits: “We haven’t heard from him [bin Laden] in a long time… I don’t know where he is. I really just don’t spend that much time on him, to be honest with you.” Link: Bush: Truly not concerned about bin Laden (short version) In May 2002, ABC News reports on a new spliced-together tape from unknown time periods in which bin Laden appears “about the same” (that is, sickly-looking) as in the tape from December 2011. ABC News also says they have “learned intelligence reports indicate bin Laden had received a kidney transplant in Pakistan,” but do not know when. Link:

    July 2002: FBI Chief Says bin Laden is Most Likely Dead; Nothing from bin Laden Since December 2001 In July 2002, the BBC reveals a bombshell: the FBI’s counter-terrorism chief Dale Watson says bin Laden is ‘”probably dead.” Conveniently, bin Laden’s followers’ claim that bin Laden will “not make more video statements until his group launches another attack on the United States.” Link:

    In July 2002, CNN reports that bin Laden’s close bodyguards were captured in February of 2002, but not bin Laden. The article also quotes mentions some high-level officials: “Some high-level U.S. officials are already convinced by such evidence that bin Laden, who has not been seen or heard from in months, is dead.” Link:

    In July 2002, Time Magazine reports that “intelligence officials are not certain whether Osama bin Laden is alive or dead” but that “they have found a tantalizing document that suggests he was living at least as recently as the last days of December [of 2001].” Link:,9171,1002840,00.html In July 2002, The New York Times runs another article on how Osama bin Laden is likely dead. The author notes how unusual it would be for bin Laden, known for his constant desire for media attention, would be silent for over half a year. Link:

    October 2002: Intelligence Officials Confirm bin Laden is Dead; bin Laden’s Will is Released Also in October 2002 the D.C.-based news service The World Tribune, citing Israeli intelligence sources, reports that the United States and Israel have concluded that bin Laden died in Afghanistan in December 2001. They note that additional bin Laden messages are “probably fabrications,” and that bin Laden’s heir has been chosen. Link:

    The president of Afghanistan also concludes that bin Laden is probably dead: “The more we don’t hear of him, and the more time passes, there is the likelihood that he probably is either dead or seriously wounded somewhere.” Link: In October 2002 CNN reports that U.S. intelligence officials have obtained Osama bin Laden’s will, which is dated December 14, 2001 (approximately the same date as has been reported bin Laden’s funeral in Tora Bora by Fox News and other outlets). CNN also reports that there has been no evidence of bin Laden since December of 2001. Link:

    2002 Onwards: Efforts to Target bin Laden are Closed Down; bin Laden = “Elvis” In 2004, the LA Times quotes Donald Rumsfeld (who mixes up Hussein with bin Laden) as admitting: “We’ve not seen him [bin Laden] on a video since 2001.” Link:

    In 2006 the New York Times reports the CIA had officially closed down the unit focused on capturing bin Laden the previous year. Link:

    In 2006, U.S. and Pakistani officials say they have not received any information about bin Laden in years: “no tips from informants, no snippets from electronic intercepts, no points on any satellite image.” The article rehashes the December 2001 video of bin Laden as the most recent evidence (other than a second-hand claim from 2003) of bin Laden’s existence. Some commandos are now giving Osama bin Laden the codename “Elvis.” Link:

    The available reports overwhelmingly supports the view that bin Laden died of kidney failure in December of 2001. We have mainstream media reports from a variety of sources, and zero credible evidence since then, as admitted by top level offiicals. Even if you believe the official story, the evidence very strongly suggests some entity (either the CIA, Saudi Royal Family, the Pakistani government, or all the above) helped bin Laden survive long enough via medical treatments to be killed at a later point in time. This very well could be the “one big lie” Seymour Hersh has mentioned in The Guardian recently.

    (Thanks to “BirthdaySuit11” this info)

  10. The credibility of the distinguished author regarding Osama bin Laden’s death is very close to zero, since a short search for his record suggests that he has been writing as if Osama bin Laden’s hijackers actually destroyed the Twin Towers with their airplanes. Trust him on matters more complex than the interpretation of Building 7’s video record at your own risk.

    Ditto for his principal source, Hersh.

    It bears repeating that the innumerable ostensibly well-meaning alternative information providers who live the official 9/11 myth as an absolute truth as if their lives depended on it are just as criminal against humanity as the warmongers and sponsors of terror who infect the U.S. government. The latter could not perform their nefarious jobs without guarantees of censorship from the former.


    1. Daniel Noel,Yes,Seymour Hersh is simply another “controlled opposition” whose validity is nil.
