There are many conspiracy theories surrounding Bin Laden and his death, I will try to cover as many as possible with some facts, ask yourself what do you believe about his death before reading this?
President Barack Obama authorized a raid by the Navy Seals with support from the CIA near Abbottabad, Pakistan. The raid was successful during the 40 minute raid when Bin Laden was shot in the head. After searches of the property his body was taken, genetic and facial recognition tests were done. After positively identifying Bin Laden and within 24 hours of his death, his body was taken out to sea for burial. Reports by the USA says that Bin Laden was shot in the left eye and chest, the body was washed and wrapped in a white sheet and placed in a weighted bag and some religious marks were read (translated into Arabic) before his body entered the sea.
Bin Laden’s burial has been criticised by people saying he should not have had an Islamic funeral but Muslim scholars have been quick to say it breaches Sharia law. The standard practice for Muslim burials are placing a body in a grave with the head facing towards Mecca within 24 hours after ritual washing and shrouding of the body. Burial at sea is rare in Islam, but only permitted in certain circumstances. If on a long voyage the body might decompose and cause a health issue or the risk of the body being dug up by enemies and being mutilated.
US officials say that they didn’t want the grave to become a pilgrimage site and the Egyptian analyst and Lawyer said it was to prevent his grave from becoming a shrine. It has also been suggested that no country would have taken the body of the most wanted man.
Immediately after bin Laden’s death was announced, the USA widely reported that he was shooting at the time of his death and that he used a woman thought to be his wife as a human shield and it was explained as an intense, chaotic and prolonged fire fight with many others. But all this has now been refuted and the story has been changed 3 times so far. The ‘now’ official report is that a sole Al Qaeda shooter was shot dead after he solely fired on the Americans from a guesthouse in the compound early on in the raid and a woman also died in the crossfire. The Americans were not fired on for the rest of the raid, but they killed Bin Laden’s son on the staircase and later Bin Laden was killed (he was thought to be reaching for a weapon), his wife was shot in the leg while running toward the Americans. Intelligence on Al Qaeda was obtained during the raid.
Three of Bin Laden’s widows are in Pakistani custody and they have said that one son has not been seen since even thou the White house had initially claimed that Hamza was killed, which later changed to Khalid being killed instead.
It was reported that the White House watched the raid live, but it has now been revealed that the live feed was actually cut before the Navy SEALS entered the compound, so the photos that were released, seem to be staged. The CIA later confirmed there was a 25 minute blackout.
What I personally find interesting is that the first account/story of what happened only changed when Bin Laden’s daughter told the Pakistan officials of what happened and it was published in Pakistan and elsewhere in the region. The later changes happened for the same reasons, isn’t this a little bit odd?
There are mixed feeling to Bin Laden being shot dead unarmed, obviously some people are very glad that he was killed. The Spanish Prime Minister said that he and others would have preferred him to stand trial and Pakistan officials are alleged to have said it was done in ‘cold blood’ as he did not resist arrest. A columnist Heribert Prantl, at the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, asked, “Which law governs the execution of Bin Laden?” He said that American law required trials before the death penalty and concluded, “The decision to kill the godfather of terror was political.”
Khalid Shaikh Mohammed the suspected No. 3 al Qaeda leader was captured in a joint raid by Pakistani and CIA operatives on a house in Rawalpindi and had said he has recently meet Bin Laden on the Pakistan and Afghanistan border. Before this information came out, The Associated Press received similar information from an ex-intelligence chief of Afghanistan’s former Taliban rulers which seem to corroborate the story of Bin Laden but On May 6, 201, an al-Qaeda website reported and acknowledged bin Laden’s death.
Published on the 19th May on PressTV, senior editor of Ohio-based Veterans Today Gordon Duff, said that Bin Laden was not shot dead but his double/clone was instead and that he was working for the CIA under the name of Raymond Davis. Duff also says that the CIA had a facility next door to the compound Bin Laden was allegedly killed at, it was a safe house for agents and the compound was filled with armed agents. He also states that the FBI has never provided evidence linking Bin Laden to 9/11. I saw an interview shortly after the raid, with locals saying on TV that they had only seen Americans at the compound, so this backs up the story that Gordon Duff has said.
Chinese official News Agency (May 2nd 2011) reports that Bin Laden was killed by Pakistan forces and the USA just picked up the body, the helicopter that got shot down was Pakistani at around 1.20am in the Sukandarabad area of Abbotabad. The fire of guns were exchanged and women and children were arrested and a woman admitted that Bin Laden was dead. The body was recovered by 2 helicopters. People in Abbotabad disbelief that Bin Laden lived or died there.
A survey taken by YouGoy and Polis in Karachi in Pakistan (published 7th May 2011), Islamabad and Lahore shows that 2/3 of people do not believe that it was Bin Laden killed in the raid. 75% of people disapproved of the US raid. 74% of people said America is at war with the Muslim world and do not respect Islam. 45% of people said Bin Laden did not declare war on Pakistan. 61% have respect for the Taliban, 35% believe that Bin Laden is not a mass murder and less than 25% said that Bin Laden authorized the 9/11 attack.
The photo that has been circulating the internet is fake and is thought to have been circulating for at least 2 years and it was used on the front pages of the mail, times, telegraph, mirror and the sun. The originally publication is thought to have come from a middle east online newspaper on the 29th April, 2009. The photo is based on a genuine photo used by Reuter News Agency.
According to theories, during July 2001, Bin Laden flew to an American hospital in Dubai for kidney treatment and was met by the CIA, this information was from French intelligence sources and confirmed by Dr. Steve R. Poeczenik (April 2002) who held numerous different influential positions under three different Presidents and still works with the Defence Department and you wouldn’t class him as a conspiracy theorist.
On the eve of 9/11 it is thought that Bin Laden was in a Pakistan military hospital, under Pakistan ISI (which have close ties to the CIA). It has also been suggested that Bin Laden was on Bush’s range on 9/11 and keep in mind that Bin Laden’s family in America were flown out of America very shortly after 9/11 on 13th September, with 6 private Jets and nearly 2 dozen commercial planes carrying 142 Saudi’s with 24 members of the Bin Laden family, this was approved by the White House. This was public knowledge at the time.
Some people suggest that Bin Laden denied any involvement in 9/11 and vigorously condemned those individuals involved in the attack, this has been said 4 times and is on public record in every country apart from the UK and USA. On Sept. 28, 2001 during an interview with the Pakistani newspaper Ummat, bin Laden is reported to have said: “I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children and other people. Such a practice is forbidden even in the course of a battle.” I personally can remember this at it was very briefly in the media.
There are many theories and documents available that suggest Bin Laden worked for the CIA, the name Tim Osman was assigned to him while working for the CIA. This was when Bin Laden left Saudi Arabia to fight in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union invasion in 1979. Bin Laden, along with a small group of Islamic militants from Egypt, Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria and Palestinian refugee camps all over the Middle East, became the “reliable” partners of the CIA in its war against Moscow.
By 1984 Bin Laden was running Maktab-al-Khidamar (MAK), which channelled money, fighters and arms. The MAK was taken care off by the ISI, Pakistan’s state security and the CIA. But Bin Laden was not the leader of Afghanistan’s Mujahedeen. The CIA and Saudi Arabia gave more than 6 billion dollars to the resistance fighters during the war.
It is also thought that Bin Laden toured US military bases in search of support for armaments and for political support, it is suggested that he even visited the White House. It is thought that Bin Laden and Mustafa Chalaby ran a jihad refugee centre in Brooklyn, New York, USA. It is also thought that Young Afghan and Arab nationals (I.e. Jordan and Egypt) trained at secret camps and at the Farm. The farm is a CIA training centre in Virginia, USA. They learned sabotage skills which is then passed down to the younger generations. It is also thought that the CIA chose the Taliban to lead Afghanistan, once the Soviets left, just like Saddam Hussein was chosen to lead Iraq.
It is thought that Bin Laden has died several times, so here are the theories so far. On December 26th, 2001, Pakistan reported Bin Laden dead, January 17th, 2002, Pakistan President report Bin Laden dead. These were the first sources to suggest that Bin Laden was dead, he was buried in the mountains of southeast Afghanistan and the President echoed this statement. Fox News covered this story and a Taliban leader (who attended the funeral) is cited saying that Bin Laden died a peaceful death due to an untreatable lung problem.
On July 11th, reports in the New York Times that Bin Laden was buried in the mountains. In October 2002, Afghanistan President reported Bin Laden was dead. In October 2002, Israeli intelligence said that Israel and the US assessed that Bin Laden was dead and he probably died in December 2001 during the military campaign in Afghanistan and it is suggested that his body was frozen in storage to be used for maximum advantage.
Madeleine Albright on `17th December 2003 on Fox News, said he was dead and on ice and they would use his death during the Bush election if they needed to. Steve Poeczenik, top deputy to Henry Kissinger (and others) said that Bin Laden had died and was put on Ice and in the future would be used at a political time to boost government eyes of people. He suggests that CIA physicians had treated him for marfan syndrome a degenerative genetic disease. But others suggest they decided to use Bin Laden Video’s instead during the Bush election. In November 2005, Senator Harry Reid, reported that Bin Laden was dead and he had died in the earthquake in Pakistan earlier in the year.
Published on the 7th May 2011, a former CIA agent, Berkan Yashar
currently living in Turkey told the Russian TV station, Channel One that Bin Laden had died June 26, 2006 and that Bin Laden was seriously ill before dying and suggest that the US found his grave near the border and then staged the raid.
On September 23rd, 2006, a leaked memo of the French Secret Service was sent to newspaper, claiming that Bin Laden had died and an enquiry was set up by President Jacques Chirac. Bin Laden died of typhoid late August in Pakistan which lead to a partial paralysis of his internal organs. The copy of the DGSE foreign Intelligence Service report is dated, 21st September. Pakistan president Asif Ali Zardari declared that Bin Laden was dead, but could not confirm it on April 27th, 2009.
Iranian Intelligence Minister (Heydar Moslehi) claimed on the 8th May 2011 at a cabinet meeting that Iran has credible information and documents to prove that Bin Laden died from an illness before the US raid. They also asked for proof and claim it is a PR campaign to divert the attention away from Domestic problems.
Obama was losing popularity in the US, the dollar was dropping, the support of wars dropping, not forgetting the forged birth certificate and Pakistan threatening to kick the USA and their drones out of their country.
The CIA admitted in 2010 that they created fake Bin Laden Videos this was quoted in the Washington Post and they admitted that they recruited ‘darker-skinned employees’ to create the fake tapes. Other tapes have been proven to be fake, during July 2007, the new tape of Bin laden was actually 6 years old, released in 2003.
During the independent investigation of September 11th, the families posted 400 plus questions and the majority of the questions were ignored and in the final report, maybe we should ask ourselves why the questions were ignored.
FBI Top Ten Most Wanted page does not mention Bin Laden and connecting him to 9/11. Rex Tomb, the FBI’s chief of investigative publicity, is reported to have said, ”The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Osama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.” FBI Director Robert Mueller and Vice President Dick Cheney both admit there is no evidence linking bin Laden to 9-11.
President Dick Cheney stated: “We’ve never made the case, or argued the case, that somehow Osama Bin Laden was directly involved in 9/11. That evidence has never been forthcoming.”
I shall leave you with a quote from G.W. Bush (3/13/02) “I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.”
Since i wrote this article it has become public knowledge that all documents, photos and DNA samples have been lost.
Here is the link to the latest article, which is a different story to the White house story http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2195075/Osama-Bin-Laden-unarmed-ALREADY-DYING-Navy-SEALs-burst-bedroom.html
Several articles have now stated that the Seals never saw a body and it was never put to sea.
