I am sorry. But, after the past decade of lies, distortions, obfuscations, and out and out deception surrounding 9/11 and every other damn issue under the sun, I don’t believe anything they say about anything anymore. (And, I know this shite ain’t new, but as the brazeness elevates due to our unquestioning acceptance of information that is tenuous at best, and out and out provable lies at worst, it gets more surreal by the day).
So, when I heard there was a unexpected press conference about national security and knowing that they never tell any truth about REAL issues that threaten our national security, my gut reaction?…
‘Don’t tell me, they got Bin Laden. What a way to kick off Obama in 2012 corporate campaign’!
I choked on my grapes when the NYT pre-released the story.
And, I don’t buy their official story. Let me get this straight. The most wanted enemy of the United States was killed in a firefight and the body was unceremoniously dumped into the sea before any independent source could verify its authenticity. All of the sudden, the US which wages war and routinely tortures brown people to justify their criminal operations against humanity overseas is vested in following proper burial protocol for the most wanted man in the world. They were content with a photo id.
And, why the hell wouldn’t they take him alive? Wouldn’t that go against national security issue interests, if Osama is masterminding covert plots to terrorize the entire globe? With the entire US military at our fingertips, and him in a known location and compound, we couldn’t manage to even TRY to take him alive? You would think that would be the orders, if national security was the true issue. Get him alive at all possible. And, given that there is an entire movement to bring about the truth of what really happened on 9/11, don’t you think they would want to at the VERY least produce a body to put any doubts to rest AND bring closure to the families and relatives of 9/11 victims?
Logic and consistency seem to always fray when we go near the subject of 9/11 and its supposed mastermind. The American people were content to just gulp up a ‘independent’ commissions report that was riddled with inconsistencies and holes the size of the grand canyon along with outright fallacies, so this must have seemed small theatre compared to the years long dodge, obfusication, and cover-up of truth to the true events of that day.
I d-o-n-o-t-b-e-l-i-e-v-e t-h-e-m
I don’t trust known liars. I don’t trust a government that launched a middle-east strategy based on a boogeyman and fabricated connections to a terrorist organization with a leader whom the US trained. I don’t believe it is all a coincidence that high level officials were warned to not fly that day, or that Norad didn’t scramble planes, and flight tapes were crushed and destroyed and thrown in garbage cans
And, I am sick of being called a ‘conspiracy theorist’ when the evidence contradicts their own claims and bolsters the case for logical scrutiny and a truly independent investigation. The killing of Osama Bin Laden has not been proven, and if we had him in our custody, that would have been very simple to do.
Why the hell didn’t we?
