Killing Osama - The Big Lie Lives On

The June 18th, 2012 issue of Newsweek Magazine has an article about the doctor who conducted the CIA's vaccination program in Pakistan that led to the raid on the compound in Abbottabad where Osama bin Laden was allegedly killed.  http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2012/06/10/the-pakistani-doctor-who-helped-find-osama-bin-laden-s-hideout.html

I emphasize the word "allegedly" because to date, despite numerous books, articles, and claims by members of the military and government, including President Obama, there is no independently verifiable evidence Osama bin Laden was actually present at the compound or even still alive. As David Ray Griffin noted in a book written prior to the raid, there were numerous accounts of his death in December 2001, not to mention various actors portraying him in videos.  http://www.americanpendulum.com/en/2011/05/02/david-ray-griffin-on-evidence-osama-bin-laden-died-several-years-ago/  also http://www.911workinggroup.org/2011/06/death-of-osama-911-big-lie-gets-even.html

There were three things that popped out from the Newsweek story entitled "The Doctor's Grim Reward" worth noting:

1. The doctor never obtained DNA samples from the compound, nor was he, as the article indicates, ever aware at any time of Osama bin Laden's presence inside. Nevertheless, this didn't stop former CIA Director Leon Panetta from publicly stating last January that the doctor's efforts were "very helpful" in identifying bin Laden's whereabouts.

2.  The doctor, whose name was Shakeel Afridi, was arrested by Pakistani authorities approximately three weeks after the Abbottabad raid for spying for the CIA.  According to Pakistani intelligence officials, he told his interrogators that he had been "introduced to the CIA by someone at Save the Children," the largest humanitarian organization operating in Pakistan.  This is significant considering the widespread use by the CIA of supposedly non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and "humanitarian" groups in championing "humanitarian" interventions in places like Libya, sub-Saharan Africa and Syria. http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=29234

3.  For conspiracy theorists the article was also interesting in that the vaccination program being administered in Pakistan involved the use of Hepatitis B Vaccines.  It's long been rumored that the AIDS virus was deliberately introduced into the gay population of the United States by government scientists through Hepatitis B vaccinations that were given in New York City, San Francisco, and elsewhere between1978 – 1981. http://www.agoracosmopolitan.com/home/Frontpage/2008/03/29/02309.html  

Recently a book by a participant in the raid on Abbottabad was released supposedly without permission from the Pentagon.  The book, No Easy Day, written under the pseudonym "Mark Owen," according to Fox News was actually written by a Seal Team 6 member named Matt Bissonette.  Significantly, the author, despite publishing potentially sensitive information without prior approval, has not been reprimanded.  http://www.infowars.com/insider-exposes-bin-laden-death-book-hoax/  Contrast this with the treatment of Private First Class Bradley Manning or the treatment by other whistleblowers by the Obama Administration and it becomes obvious this book is anything but rogue. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2012/apr/11/obama-administration-whistleblowers-paul-harris

When it comes to propaganda, like the character in George Orwell's novel 1984, Osama bin Laden is the gift that keeps on giving.  If you recall, throughout the Bush term in office, bin Laden would release videos and audios at politically opportune times, such as right before an election.  Even in death he's still haunting our imaginations.  In December, a movie about the raid on Abbottabad, "Zero Dark Thirty," is to be released.   The film, which was produced with assistance from the CIA and Defense Department, had originally been scheduled for release before the election, but was moved back because the filmmakers weren't "ready."  Supposedly political considerations weren't factors in that decision.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-19194578 

As the Nazi Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels knew, if you repeat a lie often enough it becomes the Truth.  The myth of Osama bin Laden's demise is just such a lie.  A lie, conveniently timed for al Qaeda's re-emergence once again as an ally of U.S. and NATO in efforts to topple the regimes of Libya and Syria.  http://www.infowars.com/cfr-strategist-praises-al-qaeda-bombings-in-syria/  (A number the 9/11 hijackers had served alongside the CIA and NATO in Afghanistan, Chechnya, and in Bosnia.)  http://www.historycommons.org/timeline.jsp?timeline=complete_911_timeline&startpos=700
