Osama Bin Laden was announced dead nine years ago. He was announced dead in Pakistan in 2002 by President Musharraf. In 2003 the head of the FBI said he was dead. In 2005 a US senator stated that OBL was dead. In 2006 French Intelligence said he was dead. In 2007 Benazir Bhutto announced he was dead. 2009, the Pakistani President said Americans hadn’t heard from Bin Laden for 7 years.
Notwithstanding all this evidence, the USA claims that in 2011 they shot and killed him, and then threw his body into the ocean. I doubt any body thrown was actually his, but the Bin Laden myth, at least, has finally been laid to rest. In the world of media mythology, he was one of the biggest stars of all time. In reality he was nothing much.
But why was there this myth about him?
1996 MI6 helped ‘Al Quaeda’ attempt to kill Gaddafi in Libya. French journalists reported this. Gaddafi subsequently wanted OBL declared an international terrorist. The world laughed off this suggestion. The CIA and ‘Al Quaeda’ are now fighting together in Libya in support of the ‘rebels’. Bin Laden was what’s known as a CIA asset, as he was all along.
Robin Cook stated in Parliament in 2005 that Al Quaeda was only a database of mujahideen and fighters, and the fiction that Al Quaeda was a coherent terrorist organisation with OBL at its head was a creation of the CIA. Two months later Robin Cook died suddenly, of a convenient heart attack while on a country stroll with his wife. He was whisked away to hospital by helicopter without his wife, who was not permitted to accompany him, although he was still alive. At the age of 54, this brave man, like so many others who stood in their way, was no more. By such means has the Bin Laden myth been maintained.
WIKIPEDIA writes a strangled version of the truth, typical of where heavy censorship and other methods of suppression are in use, as follows –
