Osama bin Laden Killed Years Ago?

A 2007 Benazir Bhutto interview in which she says the al-Qaeda leader was 'murdered' years ago contributes to the uncertainty surrounding US claims about Osama bin Laden's death.


  1. I'm going to go out on a limb and say this (and every other conrpiracy theory about this) is bullshit.

    Just so you know, you can question authority without falling for every insane rambling that is proposed by a paranoid psycho. Skepticism doesn't mean rejecting everything from one source and everything from another... you've just put your authority in fools without power out of spite for the fools with it.

  2. *and accepting everything from another...

  3. I'm going to go out on a limb and say this (and every other conrpiracy theory about this) is bullshit.

    And the fact that there is no body to examine, that it was disposed of by a quick "burial-at-sea", doesn't raise even the slightest suspicion in your mind? You don't have to buy into a conspiracy theory to at least have a few questions and refuse to just accept whatever your masters in government tell you.

    Your lack of doubt when it comes to the state's bullshit never ceases to amaze me!

  4. There's no way you're as amazed as I am at the conspiracy theories you're willing to espouse.

    I'm sure Osama is hanging out on an island with Elvis, Cobain, JFK's real killer, the Loch Ness Monster...

    But I'll just leave you to it. No point in me mocking you. Enjoy your stint as a Deather. Hopefully someday soon you can look back on this and laugh.

  5. Yes, he's double dead.

    As Paul Craig Roberts said:

    Osama bin Laden’s Second Death

    By Paul Craig Roberts

    May 02, 2011 - If today were April 1 and not May 2, we could dismiss as an April fool’s joke this morning’s headline that Osama bin Laden was killed in a firefight in Pakistan and quickly buried at sea. As it is, we must take it as more evidence that the US government has unlimited belief in the gullibility of Americans.

    Think about it. What are the chances that a person allegedly suffering from kidney disease and requiring dialysis and, in addition, afflicted with diabetes and low blood pressure, survived in mountain hideaways for a decade? If bin Laden was able to acquire dialysis equipment and medical care that his condition required, would not the shipment of dialysis equipment point to his location? Why did it take ten years to find him?

    Consider also the claims, repeated by a triumphalist US media celebrating bin Laden’s death, that “bin Laden used his millions to bankroll terrorist training camps in Sudan, the Philippines, and Afghanistan, sending ‘holy warriors’ to foment revolution and fight with fundamentalist Muslim forces across North Africa, in Chechnya, Tajikistan and Bosnia.”

    That’s a lot of activity for mere millions to bankroll (perhaps the US should have put him in charge of the Pentagon), but the main question is: how was bin Laden able to move his money about?

    What banking system was helping him? The US government succeeds in seizing the assets of people and of entire countries, Libya being the most recent. Why not bin Laden’s? Was he carrying around with him $100 million dollars in gold coins and sending emissaries to distribute payments to his far-flung operations?

    This morning’s headline has the odor of a staged event. The smell reeks from the triumphalist news reports loaded with exaggerations, from celebrants waving flags and chanting “USA USA.” Could something else be going on?

    No doubt President Obama is in desperate need of a victory. He committed the fool’s error or restarting the war in Afghanistan, and now after a decade of fighting the US faces stalemate, if not defeat. The wars of the Bush/Obama regimes have bankrupted the US, leaving huge deficits and a declining dollar in their wake. And re-election time is approaching.

    The various lies and deceptions, such as “weapons of mass destruction,” of the last several administrations had terrible consequences for the US and the world. But not all deceptions are the same. Remember, the entire reason for invading Afghanistan in the first place was to get bin Laden. Now that President Obama has declared bin Laden to have been shot in the head by US special forces operating in an independent country and buried at sea, there is no reason for continuing the war.

    Perhaps the precipitous decline in the US dollar in foreign exchange markets has forced some real budget reductions, which can only come from stopping the open-ended wars. Until the decline of the dollar reached the breaking point, Osama bin Laden, who many experts believe to have been dead for years, was a useful bogyman to use to feed the profits of the US military/security complex.

    Don't miss the comments!

  6. I see you managed to NOT answer my question in your response. Why am I not surprised.

    And what conspiracy theory am I espousing? Just another one of your baseless assertions? Or can you name the theory I "espouse"?

  7. Does it seem weird to me that bin Laden's corpse wasn't dragged through the streets? No, it doesn't seem suspicious at all that they quietly disposed of him in a way that would prevent any sort of hero worship.

    I don't know what you espouse because you never write what you think, you just post garbage that other people think, then you get butt-hurt when I criticize you for posting baseless nonsense.

    Sack up and tell us what you think or accept that when you post bullshit you didn't write, I'm going to assume you found it "interesting," in the sense that you didn't see it as complete nonsense that can be dismissed as ignorant speculation.
