Osama bin Laden, Who the Associated Press calls "the glowering mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that killed thousands of Americans", was killed in an operation led by the United States, This stated by President Barack Obama on Sunday.
The Fact is that Osama Bin Laden Never claimed responsibly for, and has NEVER been charged with the attacks that took place on September 11th 2001.
The grainy video that was used by the whole of American Media to claim the guilt rested on his shoulders, in fact shows Osama Bin Laden saying he was pleased with the attacks but not that he had any involvement in them.
Robert Muller the then head of the FBI, stated precisely that the reason Osama Bin Laden has never been charged in the World Trade Center attack was because; "We have no evidence to support the accusation (by George Bush and his cabinet members) that Osama Bin Laden had any involvement with the events that took place on September 11th 2001, at the World Trade Center." On the wanted poster for Osama Bin Laden posted by the FBI there is no mention of the World Trade Center Attacks.
According to the Associated Press (AP)
"A small team of Americans carried out the attack and took custody of bin Laden's remains, the president said in a dramatic late-night statement at the White House."
The president has been quoted as stating: "Justice has been done"
September 11th and the events on that day have been the staging point for a great deal of change in the American intelligence community; because of it we changed our entire information gathering structure. It was the catalyst for the creation of Home Land Security which is now the largest and broadest such entity of its kind. It has enormous sums of money at its disposal. In fact, just how much money is involved in this endeavor is not quite known.
What has been abundantly clear is the profit that has been made from the escalation of America's involvement in no less than four (4) wars since September 11th. This allowed for the defense industry known as "The Military Industrial Complex" to in effect, write their own check with the tax payers money. Congress, stirred by the FEAR (emphasis needed) that was reiterated by virtually every media outlet, and vote seeking politician in the country, gave every single corporation with a brand new gadget that kills people a literal 'ton' of money.
The wars that have been fought by young American soldiers, some British, and a dozen or so enlisted men from Turkey; have been based on speculation, bad intelligence, and outright lies.
-Iraq, which has been proven to be a war that has taken on the characteristics of Viet Nam. Both Iraq and Viet Nam were initiated on the premise of a lie, by those very high in our governmental power structure. It was the Weapons of Mass Destruction fairy tale that was told by Bush, Cheney, Rice and Powell.
(Viet Nam, for those who are not old enough to remember, it was the Gulf of Tonkin incident where it was claimed by high ranking government officials (which may have included President Lyndon B. Johnson) That a North Vietnamese Navy vessel fired upon the USS Maddax. This, in turn lead congress to pass a bill that allowed then President Lyndon B. Johnson, to engage North Vietnam in war. In 2005 Documents were declassified that proved the incident never actually happened.)
The war in Afghanistan which has been defined by American soldiers hunting civilians, killing them and mutilating their bodies.
-Pakistan where drones have tallied up a kill ratio of 50 dead civilians to 1 dead insurgent.
-Libya is the new manner of aggression for the American war machine which is continually being defined as reports of civilian deaths from American bombs are dropped with "precision" targeting.
Al-Qaida organization was not wanted for the September 11th attacks, but they have been sought for the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa that killed 231 people and the 2000 attack on the USS Cole that killed 17 American sailors in Yemen, as well as countless other plots, some successful and some foiled.
Even today the media that caters to the President and any politician with influence is blatantly passing over the facts. CBS, NBC, Associated Press, Reuters, MSNBC, Fox News, ABC, CNN, And every major newspaper in the country has printed Osama Bin Laden was "the mastermind behind the September 11th Attacks." The fact is that that there was never enough evidence to even charge him with the crime.
Now America is in celebration of the death of what they have seen, and been shown, by a manipulative government, and corporate owned media, as to be their greatest threat to security.
In the name of security Americans have allowed their civil liberty to be cast aside in the name of false senses of safety. The Patriot act took any semblance of privacy and with its extension that has been granted by congress we have another nine months of illegal wire tapping, warrant less searches, and illegal detention to look forward to.
America is celebrating because they are under the impression that Osama Bin Laden was their sworn enemy and he is dead and defeated. They fail to see that their real enemy is alive and well in the halls of Congress catering to lobbyists while they pander to corporations for the crumbs that are left over devouring their country and all that it entails from within.
