How many times does Osama bin Laden have to die before he’s dead?

Recently President Obama announced that the U.S. had killed Osama Bin Laden (OBL), despite releasing no evidence supporting those claims. While some orchestrated groups were shown celebrating the President’s announcement, many more met his announcement with skepticism and laughter. There are many reasons to question President Obama’s announcement, primarily the fact that OBL was reported as dead almost 10 years ago. President Obama and the Democrats will benefit politically from Washington’s quickly unraveling OBL fairy tale much the way George W. Bush benefitted every time OBL miraculously popped up when Bush needed to shore up support to condone his illegal actions. The state propaganda machine has propped up OBL’s ghost for almost a decade, albeit quite poorly and this doesn’t appear to be any different.

OBL had a well-documented Kidney problem which required a constant need for dialysis. Because of the health problems that are evident in the last known OBL video from late 2001, several heads of state and counterterrorism officials have opined that OBL has been dead since December 2001, and many reports on OBL’s death from that same time frame seem to confirm that. One of the many problems with Washington’s story, which only took 48 hours before unraveling, is that a dialysis machine is nowhere to be found in any of the pictures of the purported OBL’s compound released by the U.S.

According to French Intelligence Sources, OBL was flown to an American hospital in Dubai for 10 days of treatment. In Dubai, OBL was met by the local CIA attaché who was recalled to Washington after he bragged to his friends about meeting OBL. In fact, there were other OBL Dubai witnesses too. On September 10, 2001, OBL was in a Pakistani Military hospital for treatment where he remained under the watchful eyes of Pakistani intelligence, which has deep ties to the CIA. Naturally, when information about the CIA knowing the whereabouts of the terrorist mastermind it created was released, Washington denied it, but as I’ve said many times before, Washington has a major aversion to the truth.

An October 2001 videotape featured a visibly pale and gaunt OBL wearing Army fatigues and Islamic headdress. Two months later, in December 2001, another videotape featuring a seriously ill looking OBL who appeared unable to move his left arm appeared. The December 2001 videotape appears to be the last authentic video of OBL. All the ones presented by the CIA as proof that OBL was still alive turned out to be not real. The newest tapes alleging to be of OBL released by the CIA – the leader of the state propaganda parade – with no sound may or may not be authentic. That remains to be seen.

On December 26, 2001, Fox News reported on a Pakistan Observer story that OBL had died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended OBL’s funeral. According to the source in the report, OBL died in mid-December, and the U.S. coalition would never find his body because it was buried honorably in an unmarked grave was made per OBL’s Wahibi belief. 30 close associates of OBL attended that funeral, including his family members.
