The US Government has announced the death of Osama Bin Laden, almost 9 years after he actually died. See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-13256676 Rather than tell the truth, that he was either murdered or died of kidney failure, President Obama has told us a tale of heroic derring do by the US Armed Forces.
The truth behind the real fate of Osama Bin Laden is surprisingly mainstream in the Middle East and Indian subcontinent. Here’s Benazir Bhutto talking about it in an interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnychOXj9Tg This was just a short time before her own murder; is there a connection? What interests, and disturbs me, is that the interviewer doesn’t even break his stride, as if he doesn’t hear her, or that he knew the statement was coming and was told to ignore it. This is amazing when you consider that he’s David Frost, one of the most famous journalists in the world (As well as presenter of Through the Keyhole). Here he is grilling former US President Richard Nixon in 1977: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U13ngyDqeXs .
So why has it taken them almost a decade to tell us Bin Laden is dead? It’s because the myth of the man has been important for propaganda; he’s like Goldstein in Orwell’s 1984, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2011/03/1984-at-number-39.html Now, for whatever reason which I hope we’ll soon find out, the Myth of the Man works better with him dead than alive, like “Gold Old Shoe” in Wag the Dog, see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47a7PKhpFJ0
(Addendum- 14.09 BST:) It's been on the news that Osama Bin Laden's body has already been... buried at sea!? This cover story is pathetic! They really do think we're stupid! I do hope the TV-viewing public doesn't buy it this time.
Addendum 14.53 BST:) This is in the comments box of a BBC News story: "I have just contacted someone who lives in same area where the house is. She said they heard a bang of helicopter fall and thought it was earthquake. She has confirmed the house has been empty. It is at a distance from the residential area the house can be viewed all the time and no movement has been seen and suddenly its become Osama's residence, where are his remains in sea according to AMERICA!"
