More On The Alleged Murder Of Bin Laden

The “we killed Osama bin Laden, really we did” story is getting more and more bizarre.

On May 2nd, 2011, just hours after the news of the alleged Bin Laden killing was reported, I published a piece that has since gone viral and become something of an underground classic:

“Death of Bin Laden”: A Spectral Human Sacrifice

In that article, I predicted:

“Whatever evidence they produce identifying the ghost or double as ‘Bin Laden’ will probably have the same chain of custody as the Fatty Bin Laden ‘confession video’ of December 2001 – that is, no chain of custody whatsoever.”

Some of my friends thought I was going out on a limb. Surely, they insisted, the US military hoaxers would take the trouble to manufacture some plausible-looking “evidence” that they had actually killed the world’s biggest bogeyman. After all, billions of people worldwide believed the news reports, published in Pakistan, Egypt, and elsewhere, that Bid Laden died of kidney failure in December, 2001.

I disagreed with my friends. The terror-hoaxers have shown us that they are incapable of manufacturing plausible-looking evidence. Instead, they offer absurd, blatantly-fabricated pseudo-evidence so ridiculous that one suspects they are laughing at the public for believing it…

Well I guess the hoaxers feel safe after getting a gullible public to believe – for example – the ridiculous official 911 conspiracy theory, the 7/7 London bombing, and the destruction of Libya “for humanitarian reasons.”  How could the public become so gullible?

…”for him Art has no marvel, and Beauty no meaning, and the past no message.”…

…”Amercan life is a powerful solvent.  It seems to neutralize every intellectual element, however tough an alien it might be, and to fuse it in the native good will, complacency, thoughtlessness and optimism.”…

   -George Santayana, 1920

…What opinions the masses hold or don’t hold is looked on as a matter of indifference.  They can be granted intellectual liberty because they have no intellect…

   -George Orwell, 1984, p. 173

…”Because I hate to say it, the average American does not know the difference between a Contra and a caterpillar.  He does not know the difference between a Sandinista and a sardine.”…

   -U.S. Sen. John East (R-N.C.) 1984

Is there hope?

…Reports are estimating between 300,000 and 600,000 attendees for President Obama’s swearing-in ceremony, as compared with an overwhelming 1.8 million attending Obama’s first inauguration at a time when he also enjoyed an 80% approval rating.

“The hopes and expectations were so high it was difficult for him to meet them,” Democratic strategist Jim Manley told the New York Times. “He’s now just a mere mortal… You can’t recreate the magic that was four years ago.”

People are clearly fed up with the system itself in Washington and unenthusiastic about participating in elections for obviously corrupt puppet candidates on both sides.

Despite a heated election and close polls, even Obama struggled to fill stadiums. Crowd numbers were down significantly. From the NY Times:

At the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, he accepted his nomination before a crowd of 84,000 in a packed outdoor stadium; this year in Charlotte, Democrats worried about whether Mr. Obama could fill a stadium, and his acceptance speech was eventually moved inside to an arena with seating for 20,200, because of bad weather, his campaign said. For this year’s victory party, the Obama campaign invited 10,000 supporters to fill the floor of a Chicago convention center; the crowd was jubilant, but it was a far cry from the 200,000 people who gathered in Grant Park on election night 2008…
