If he was really an al - Qaeda mastermind, Bin Laden would have possessed critically important information about his terrorist network. If government conspiracy theories are true, Bin Laden ' s organization might even have obtained WMD and targeted American cities. By killing Bin Laden rather than taking him alive and interrogating him, the US might have condemned hundreds of thousands or even millions of Americans to death by al - Qaeda WMD attack. And even if this were only a 1% possibility, as Dick Cheney tells us, the government would have to treat it as if it were definitely going to happen.So when the US government tells us it made no real effort to capture Bin Laden alive, but instead just staged an execution - style killing of the most important terror witness in history, it is obviously lying. The story of the alleged Bin Laden killing is full of contradictions and absurdities. First we were told that Obama and his cabinet watched the killing as it happened; we were even shown photos of Hillary Clinton shrieking in pleasure at the sight. Then we were told that this never happened. We were shown a fake photo purporting to show Bin Laden ' s corpse. It turned out to be a bad photoshop hoax. In fact, there are no photos of Bin Laden ' s body. There was no autopsy. There was no positive identification that it was Bin Laden, no transparent, public DNA evidence with a chain of custody, no witnesses…no evidence at all, in fact. And nobody saw the body being thrown into the ocean, “in accordance with Islamic burial custom”! The Associated Press and the LondonDaily Mailrecently published an article headlined:
“Pentagon DELETES files about Osama bin Laden raid after transferring them to CIA where they can ' t be made public - Military files about the Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden ' s hideout have been purged from Pentagon computers - Associated Press requested information on the raid some 20 times in 2011 but requests were rejected - A line in an inspector general ' s draft report states the files were purged from the defense department to another government department to prevent certain information about the raid being made public - The sentence was removed from the final report released weeks ago”If the government account is true, the secrecy makes no sense. If they really killed Bin Laden, every scrap of information about the raid - every second of video, every photograph, every memo, every DNA test, every autopsy file, every debriefing - would be proudly waved before the world. If the government account were true, there would be no need to “prevent certain information about the raid being made public. ” So what are they covering up? Did they kill a Bin Laden double rather than Bin Laden himself, who(according to numerous reports) died in December, 2001? Or was the whole raid just a drill - a theatrical staged event like the Boston bombings…and like 9/11 itself?
