Osama Bin Laden: The Lies That Fuel The Conspiracy

by | 4th, May 2011

IS Osama bin Laden really dead? The White House says the photo of the dead Al Qaeda leader is “gruesome” and could be “inflammatory“.

Anorak thinks he is dead. If you believe the Americans can cook up a fake killing and that Barack Obama is a liar, then you may also believe that Bin Laden is alive and will at any moment hog the media by entering the room under his own steam. What better way to further his own aims and do down America than by exposing the big lie.

The problem is just that two days after the killing, we have not seen the body. And the US has not always been so squeamish. We saw Saddam Hussein’s dead sons. And if the photo of the dead Bin Laden is gruesome, what of the pictures of him after he was cleaned up for burial at sea? Show us the more palatable ones. They’ll do.

Anyhow, let’s look at lies so far:

LIE: We are shown a photo of the dead Bin Laden. It’s not him.

LIE: He hid behind his wife.

Amal Al-Sadah, 27, the terror chief’s latest and youngest bride, is alive. She was shot in the leg.

In mitigation, the wife of Bin Laden’s courier, Sheikh Abu Ahmed, killed in the raid. The White House blames the confusion on the “fog of war”.

LIE: Bin Laden was armed

Within moments of going inside the main building, the Seals had sight of bin Laden, who had grabbed an automatic weapon and was firing at them – Telegraph, April 2, 2011

The White House has confirmed that he did resist capture but was not armed when US special forces raided his compound in Pakistan. – BBC, April 3, 2011

LIE: He’s hard to find.

He’s living in an affluent part of Pakistan in a big house with massive walls and view of the cricket pitch.

LIE: The DNA confirmed it was him.

The Obama administration earlier insisted it used advanced DNA techniques to find a “virtually 100% match” of the body with DNA taken from relatives of Bin Laden. Face-mapping software was also used

John Brennan Obama’s anti-terror adviser tells one and all:

“We are going to do everything we can to make sure that nobody has any basis to try to deny that we got Osama bin Laden.”

Says Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joseph Lieberman:

“It may be necessary to release the pictures – as gruesome as they undoubtedly will be, because he’s been shot in the head – to quell any doubts that this somehow is a ruse that the American government has carried out.”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers says:

“We want to make sure that we maintain dignity – if there was any – in Osama bin Laden, so that we don’t inflame problems other places in the world and still provide enough evidence that people are confident that it was Osama bin Lade.”

The Taliban in Afghanistan are more circumspect than our media:

“Since the Americans have not provided convincing documents to prove their claim, and sources close to Sheikh Osama Bin Laden have not confirmed or denied the reports about his martyrdom yet… (we) see it as premature to issue a statement in this regard,” the Taliban said in a statement on their website.

Show us the body.
