Pakistan TV Report Contradicts US Claim of Bin Laden’s Death “The Death of Osama bin Laden Were we fed a a pack of lies? Article by Paul Craig Roberts”
“Therefore, it seems that although initially, the TV station was overjoyed with this interview, they changed their tune, twenty four hours later. (for some unknown reason.)”
Readers can arrive at their own conclusions. It seems clear that under intense pressure and serious threats from the US government, the Pakistani government fell in line with the US government’s claim that a commando raid had killed bin Laden and all had returned safely, and that the TV news organization also got the message to get in line.
It is likely that the many witnesses who observed the dead from the helicopter crash have been warned to keep quiet. However, a news organization, should one be so inclined, could certainly interview Bashir and the 200 others who saw the dead bodies. A good reporter, perhaps accompanied by trained psychologists, would be able to tell if people were lying out of fear and encourage some to speak anonymously.
Tom Moore and I held a bash recently to celebrate the event of former LCpl Mike Smith showering Jane Fonda with tobacco juice. At that event were former Marines from Texas, Oregon, and Washington State, Marines from Pfc to bird colonel. Lots of locals. Mike received these accolades with the humility which marks him as a sincere and devoted Marine, a Marine who spoke (spat) for us all as an expression of disdain for one who should have been tried for treason and imprisoned.
In April Jane Fonda had a book-signing session in a bookstore in Kansas City. In the line of worshipers waiting to get Fonda to sign her new book was one former CAP Marine who did not share the enthusiasm of the crowd. After about 90 minutes he got to the table where sat Jane Fonda, basking in the admiration of her misled left-wing following. Mike placed the book in front of her, gathered up the oral pressure needed, and blasted her with a mouthful of tobacco juice. Instantly gaining the respect of hundred of thousands of Vietnam vets who had been demeaned and abused by Fonda’s actions supporting the enemies of America, he quickly left the store, walked about fifteen feet beyond the door and waited for the inevitable arrest by the cops.
I have heard some criticism from others who didn’t like the idea that he “ran” from the store. My friends, he didn’t run. He is 60% disabled. But he knew every person in that store was a supporter of Hanoi Jane, so he quickly — as quickly as he could — left the store to avoid whatever might have been in store for him from a hostile crowd.
He was arrested by
HAS THE SECOND 1776 ARRIVED?

(Aug. 7, 2011) — Some may call the rising of the Tea Party Movement, at this historical moment, as providence. Others might say that the time was right for them to appear on the scene, as government grew more fiscally irresponsible and corrupt. And still others might proffer that it is merely random probability that a freedom-loving, grass-roots movement suddenly was born in the hearts and minds of millions of Americans to take hold in the body politic.
Jacksonville is bananas for bananas. Consumers here eat so many that Dole Fresh Fruit has bestowed on us the title “Top Banana City.” But how much do you really know about bananas?
1. They’re naturally radioactive, but it’s no big deal. We’re exposed to low levels of natural radiation every day; it’s even emitted by our bodies. So it’s OK to keep eating bananas, radiation and all.
2. Bananas are berries. Botanically speaking, “berry” is defined as a fruit produced from a single ovary, so bananas are in the same category as grapes, cranberries and tomatoes. But botanically, strawberries and blueberries aren’t berries.
3. They don’t grow on trees. What is usually referred to as a banana tree is actually a plant – specifically, a large herb.
5. Banana beer is popular in Africa. Ripe bananas are peeled, juiced, mixed with sorghum or millet flour and fermented to create an orange alcoholic drink. There’s also Wells Banana Bread Beer brewed in England, and the alcohol content is 5.2 percent.
6. Why do people say, “Is that a banana in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?” The phrase is widely credited to Mae West, but her version involved no bananas. Supposedly, in real life in the 1930s, what she said to either a Los Angeles police officer or an interviewer was, “Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?” Or maybe she said “pistol.” The only time she said it on screen was in her last movie, “Sextette,” but she said, “pleased.”

I’ll repeat a story I’ve told many times on a Chesty Puller movie.
It was in the late 70s, maybe early 80s, I was watching an afternoon TV talk show–it was likely The Merv Griffin Show, but it could have been The Mike Douglas Show, both of them had afternoon shows about that time.
The guest star that day was Glenn Ford, who sat down and eventually got around to stating that he had just recently finished filming a movie titled “Chesty”! He elaborated that it was on the life of the famous Marine, LtGen Lewis B. Puller USMC (deceased). They discussed Chesty some more, and….
Ford was irritated that for no apparent reason that he could find, that the movie had abuptly been “shelved,” as he put it, and he had no idea when and if it would be released. He was told nothing, and could find out nothing. There was further discussion, and at one point it was suggested that Chesty had been a controversial character, and perhaps someone big didn’t want it shown–Ford, as I recall, nodded in agreement.
Through the years, I have
Scolded by Another Federal Judge, ‘Birther’ Lawyer Orly Taitz Blames Court Clerk for Bad Filing
Posted Jul 26, 2011 5:24 PM CDT By Martha Neil
A California lawyer known for failed “birther” litigation against President Barack Obama that resulted in a $20,000 sanction from a U.S. District Court judge in Georgia has now irritated another member of the federal bench in the nation’s capital, according to the Orange County Register.
Attorney Orly Taitz “is either toying with the court or displaying her own stupidity,” wrote U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth yesterday in a memorandum and order (PDF) striking Taitz’s filing because of

President Obama and the Democrats believe that every penny of the struggling middle class, all the wealth earned by the hardworking, risk taking entrepreneurs and businesspeople, and all the profits of the job-providing corporations, belongs to them, the Federal Government—and that we should all be thankful for whatever amount of our incomes they decide to let us keep. President Obama has said that in these difficult times everyone must sacrifice. His and the Democrats’ idea of sacrifice is to confiscate even more money from the people to feed the government monster which politicians have created. I say the American people have sacrificed enough.
Wake up, America! Wake up, stand up and refuse to sacrifice further; its time you take control of the Federal government and make it sacrifice for a change; it’s time you stick a long sharp spear of responsibility and accountability into the pale fat underbelly of Big Government Oppression and bleed dry the bloated, corrupt, tyrannical and insatiably hungry monster it has become; bleed it dry of its waste, its fraud and its ability to steal and squander our wealth—wealth which rightly belongs to those who create and earn it.
Your pockets have been picked, the fruit of your labor has been confiscated, your patience has been tried and your goodwill has been abused for far too long. It’s time you take a stand and refuse to sacrifice further to feed the Big Government monster. It’s time you starved it down from a bullying, thieving and oppressive slavemaster into the lean, fit, tame and obedient public servant that our government was founded to be. It’s time for the Big Government Monster to learn that We the People are the masters, and it is the servant.
It’s time to explain to the oligarchy of politicians in Washington—all of them, of both parties—that they are not an aristocracy existing to lord over us or to make wealth-building, decades-long careers out of what was meant by our Founders to be limited terms of dedicated public service. It’s time to explain to them that their proper, legal constitutional role is narrow, limited and finite; that they don’t exist to mandate, regulate and control every aspect of our lives, and that we will no longer allow them to do so; nor will we allow them to continue robbing us blind to finance their corrupt and wasteful institutions, their pet projects at home and abroad, and the bottomless pit of debt they created by their self-serving and irresponsible decisions. It’s time to explain to them that they were elected to serve the people, not coronated to rule them. It’s time to leash and muzzle the reckless, feckless purveyors of our oppressive Government bureaucracy and bring them and it to heel. Wake up America! Stop bending over and taking it; stand up and demand that our elected public servants act constitutionally and in our best interest, and in the best interest of the country, shed the fat, end the abuse, fraud, corruption and cronyism, or else We the People will storm Washington and remove them.

But instead they found Jason Myles, a software consultant who was alone in the apartment and listening to music on headphones.
Myles told the Toronto Star: ‘As soon as I heard it was the police I knew it had to be a mistake of some kind.’
Dangerous trend: ‘Swatting’ is done when a hacker phones in an emergency via a computer with the aim of getting a SWAT team dispatched ‘There was nothing going on in the apartment that would warrant any kind of police response.’
Mr Myles, 39, was handcuffed on the floor while police searched for the ‘victims,’ but they found nothing – no dead mother, no threatened sister.

Cokie Roberts on Downgrade: ‘The Problem That We Have Here is the Constitution’
Cokie Roberts on Downgrade: ‘The Problem That We Have Here is the Constitution’:
“Almost immediately, after news of the crash began to spread, we were placed in an internet and phone blackout. This means communication with family, friends and “others” back home, in real time, is prevented until further notice.
However, there are also chinook pilots, crews and mechanics assigned here who were privy to the details of the crash almost immediately. One of confirmed details they have been discussing is that the chinook shot down belonged to a National Guard unit. Which is causing people to whisper in astonishment, “why were some of the most elite of America’s military, in such large numbers, tooling around on a National Guard aircraft?”
Also, those around me are wondering why such a large number(extremely unconventional for Seals, Green Berets, etc) of them riding in a single aircraft instead of being spread out into numerous aircraft.
Without question, I mean no disrespect to the pilots and crew of the National Guard aircraft, but the fact is that it’s very “strange” that Seals would be conducting an actual mission, with such large numbers, in such a basic aircraft. Especially, given the fact, that there were special operation chinooks easily available, and sitting idle, when this tragedy took place.”
I am not a journalist. I have no means of checking this. But SOMEONE needs to investigate if in fact the SEALS were on a National Guard helo, if there were SPECOPS Chinooks available and idle, and what the difference in armament is between Guard Chinooks and SPECOPS Chinooks. This potential difference in armament is HUGE and could account for the possibility of the Chinook being shot down by an RPG, if that is what happened.
Hello? Journalists? Anyone out there?
UPDATE: The SPECOPS Chinook is a very different beast that is heavily upgraded with enhanced survivability features. It is the Boeing MH-47E/G. Boeing’s Homepage for the SPECOPS chinook here. The soldier quoted above contends that the SEALS were NOT in one of these units, but rather in a standard Chinook while these SPECOPS Chinooks were available and sitting idle. Again, a JOURNALIST needs to confirm this.
UPDATE 2: From a reader:
Ann, You are on to something here. I was in the 160th 1982- 1985 and I can tell you that the reason the aviation wing was created was so special ops would never again have to fly missions with anyone other than their own pilots and birds.
UPDATE 3: From a reader:
Ann, I’m sure you’re getting a lot of notes on the Chinook debacle. I’m retired USAF familiar with how the system works when it comes to the questions asked by your Jalalabad contact. First, look to the Command Authority. Dispersion protocols are almost never broken except on direct order up the chain high enough that nobody could question or refuse the order without jeopardizing their career. Second, ‘who benefits’? Follow the trail of beneficiaries to the incident. Tactically, intell had to be passed to the shooters as to the timetable. I’m willing to bet that there were several RPG’s (if not Stinger’s – remember, we provided quite a few and never kept a record during the Soviet incursion into Afghanistan) involved. Then, once fired, the shooters had to egress unseen to fight another day. Many people I know, including some recently back from that area say this stinks to high Heaven, as you do.
What is a known fact is that Osama Bin Laden was not killed earlier this year during the hyped-Pakistan raid, but rather died nearly a decade ago due to health problems. This means that whoever landed in Pakistan and murdered the people occupying the alleged “Bin Laden” compound, just a stone’s throw away from a nearby CIA safe house, killed someone else. It is quite clear that these people, alleged to have been members of the ultra-secret SEAL Team 6, would then be liabilities to whoever attempted to foist this hoax upon the world.
With that in mind, all the way back in May 2011, Infowars Ireland’s Declan O’Shea predicted SEAL Team 6 would be inevitably eliminated. It appears now, after reports of “US troops” dying in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan, that a large part of SEAL Team 6 died with them. In fact, allegedly 22 SEAL Team 6 members are said to have died in the crash, just 2 short of the 24 that allegedly participated in the “Bin Laden” raid. The Pentagon was quick to point out that, even though the identities of SEAL Team 6 members are all closely guarded secrets – they are “sure” none of those who recently died had taken part in the “Osama Bin Laden” assassination.
Video: Declan O’Shea of Infowars Ireland, in May 2011, predicting that the SEAL Team 6 members that raided a compound in Pakistan were not long for this world and would be liquidated to tie up loose ends. The full video can be found here. Coincidentally, a large portion of SEAL Team 6 was just killed in a recent helicopter crash in Afghanistan – either the liquidation itself, or possible cover for the liquidation, as explained by Alex Jones of Infowars.com.
One thing that is certain, the professionalism, training, and dedication exhibited by the US Navy SEALs or in fact, by any of America’s armed forces, is being exploited and abused by a callus, self-serving, criminal government. Despite all the hollow praise coming from Obama and his speech writers, the reality is they could care less about the lives of these men or the families they left behind. Whether it was murdering Pat Tillman, lying about Jessica Lynch, experimenting on unknowing military test subjects, or using false pretexts to start wars that feed tens of thousands of Americans into the horrors of combat for Exxon, Halliburton, and D
Like everybody else, presidents have birthdays and have a right to celebrate them and invite others to join them in the festivities. But taking advantage of the occasion to bash the rich and then charge some of them a whopping $40,000 to be able to sit near him as he observes his birthday is nothing short of outrageous.
The only thing President Obama excels in is fundraising — after all, when a president puts the arm on you, you can hardly say no. And the president has been putting the arm on a lot of his rich friends lately and raising big bucks for his upcoming reelection campaign. It’s a shame he can’t create jobs as efficiently as he raises money for himself. If he did I might even vote for him. However, he doesn’t, and so I won’t.
He should quit blaming the rich for being successful and take a look in the mirror. Instead of quoting my father to justify himself and his shocking incompetence he should try to imitate my Dad and try to govern as well as my Dad did.
In just barely two years he has driven the economy into a ditch yet has the gall to blame our economic troubles on President Bush, who has been out of office for two years. Moreover, during the last four years of the Bush presidency, Congress, which controls the purse strings and thus the economy, was controlled by the Democrats. It wasn’t George Bush who overspent; it was the Democrats on Capitol Hill who did their best to imitate the most drunken of the legendary drunken sailors.
“Spend and elect” has long been the policy for the Democratic Party and they have been on a spending spree since taking control of Capitol Hill with nary a word of caution coming from the Obama White House. The nation is already staggering over Washington’s out-of-control spending spree and we have yet to begin to pay the monstrous bills for such costly programs as Obamacare.
It appears that Barack Obama and his toadies on Capitol Hill have no concern over the fact that their overspending is placing a burden on our children and grandchildren, who will be burdened with paying the bill this generation’s overspending is putting on their shoulders. The time-honored American policy of each generation leaving their children a prosperous nation has been reversed by Obama and his Capitol Hill allies. Their heritage will be mountains of debt.
We are now experiencing a monetary crisis thanks to Obamanomics. The savings of the American people have been savaged by the president’s economic policies and the value of the dollar has plummeted, sending the price of gold skyrocketing. Economists are warning that the nation is heading into a double-dip recession.
Incredibly, the president and his toadies in the media and on Capitol Hill are blaming that growing army of Americans in the tea party for the economic problems for which he and he alone are to blame. Decent American citizens who comprise the tea party are labeled terrorists for daring to oppose Obama’s quasi-Marxist policies.
At the heart of Obamanomics is the discredited political movement that has its roots in the political and economic policies of Karl Marx. It is a policy that has wreaked havoc whenever its ugly head is raised.
Even with the debt-ceiling compromise in place, the stock market this week proved that investors are still nervous about the economy’s long-term health. It may be a happy birthday for the president. It is not, however, a happy occasion for the American people, who are paying for the gifts he’s giving to himself.
A number of influential thinkers had concluded that the era of U.S. dominance was coming to an end. The military was overstretched, debt was overwhelming, the East’s new economies were taking over and no one was listening to the Yanks.
A few things should be kept in mind. First, pay attention to what happened when markets plummeted Thursday: Precious metals, the euro and the loonie also tumbled as investors fled to the safety of U.S. Treasury securities.
The greenback remains the world’s haven. Despite two years of deliberate currency devaluation (and more to come), the U.S. dollar remains the preferred currency of reserve, exchange, account and savings – not because it’s stable but because there’s nothing else on the horizon. Countries have snapped up all the Brazilian real securities they can find, China’s yuan isn’t trusted and the euro has lost whatever reputation it had.
Second, note that Washington’s debt emergency was not a real event created by economic circumstances but a political event created by a partisan showdown. The U.S. debt burden would be eliminated almost immediately if Congress would implement tax measures of the sort that Canada and most Western countries have. The fact that Congress won’t do so is deeply damaging to the U.S. economy and its citizens’ livelihood, but it’s not inevitably related to America’s standing in the world.
And third, ignore those tales of military decline. Yes, Afghanistan and Iraq were either failures or break-evens, but so were the first three big wars the U.S. fought after the Second World War. Yes, military spending is being slashed, but only to mid-2000s levels, still giving the U.S. more force than all other major armies combined.

Associated Press sources are reporting a statistically impossible tragedy for U.S. forces in Afghanistan– that of the 38 NATO forces killed in a helicopter crash Friday night, “more than 20″ were members of SEAL Team 6, the covert unit that took credit for killing Osama bin Laden in May.
Mainstream sources are seizing upon claims that the Taliban took credit for downing the helicopter, but that means nothing. Media instantly ran reports that al Qaeda was responsiblefor the bombing & shootings in Norway; moreover, anyone on a message board can make such claims.
Instead, Alex Jones predicted shortly after the raid on bin Laden’s compound that SEALs would soon be reported dead in a helicopter crash or staged incident following multiple reports from military sources who’ve proved accurate in the past, including on-air callers, that SEALs did indeed die during the raid. Official stories admitted after-the-fact that a helicopter went down during the mission, but claimed there were no deaths of U.S. forces.
Below is Alex’s report on the breaking news of SEAL Team 6′s official demise:
Infowars is on the record reporting that members of Seal Team 6 died in the so called OBL raid. The government admits that a super secret helicopter did crash during the OBL raid but says no one died, our intel is different. We predicted that the spin doctors would stage a crash or when a real crash took place that they would say the SEALs died then. This is a old trick that governments all over the world have been caught pulling in the past.
Hubris has led to the nation’s most corrupt administration and a Congress filled with elitist politicians, who compromise the Constitution, flout the rule of law and bankrupt our country

There is nothing fundamentally wrong with the United States or the Constitution. We have no problem that cannot be solved. We just have terrible leaders.
The worst characteristic in any leader is hubris, which is best described as a combination of arrogance and stupidity. Sadly, our current leaders in Washington, D.C. have an abundance of it.
That hubris has led to the nation’s most corrupt administration and a Congress filled with elitist politicians, who compromise the Constitution, flout the rule of law and bankrupt our country.
They consider themselves political royalty, whose words and actions may never be questioned and favor the suppression of free speech.
Such is their disdain for the citizenry that, not only do they ignore our petitions; they now refer to ordinary Americans exercising their Constitutional rights as “terrorists.”
It is not the Tea Party who are terrorists, but the arrogant political establishment, who have set the United States on a course for economic collapse within ten years.
America will be rendered defenseless.
The situation is far worse than anyone could have imagined.
The politicians and government officials in Washington, D.C. have perpetrated and covered-up the greatest fraud in the history of the United States.
They contemptuously believe that they can deflect the issue with an organized campaign of disinformation and by blocking any legal avenues citizens wish to pursue to preserve the rule of law……………………

The presentation concludes with a statement by a Captain Charles H. Nicholls that I wholeheartedly agree with: “Those of us on missile or bomber crews must also make the decision now. Before taking the oath of office or donning the uniform, we must commit ourselves to duty. We must decide now that our mission is compatible with our morality, or else we must resign our commissions.” This is a great statement. I would say – nuclear mission or no nuclear mission – that since so much of what the military does is immoral (like, for instance, bombing, invading, and occupying other countries that were no threat to the United States), those young people that can’t find a good job or are looking for money for college should not even consider the military in any capacity. And to those entrusted with nuclear weapons, we can only hope and pray that they resign their commissions. God will not bless them for launching nukes just because they were following the orders of political and military decision makers.
