RT, one of my favorite news sources, has fallen for a fake story put out by the Pentagon to support the fantasy story that a SEAL team killed Osama bin Laden, who died a second time in Abbottabad, Pakistan, a decade after his first death from illness and disease.

This fake story together with the fake movie and the fake book by an alleged SEAL team member is the way the fake story of bin Laden’s murder is perpetrated. Bin Laden’s alleged demise at the hands of a SEAL team was a propaganda orchestration, the purpose of which was to give Obama a hero’s laurels and deep six Democratic talk of challenging his nomination for a second term.

Osama bin Laden died in December 2001 of renal failure and other health problems, having denied in his last recorded video any responsibility for 9/11, instead directing Americans to look inside their own government. The FBI itself has stated that there is no evidence that Osama bin Laden is responsible for 9/11. Bin Laden’s obituary appeared in numerous foreign and Arabic press, and also on Fox News. No one can survive renal failure for a decade, and no dialysis machine was found in the alleged Abbottabad compound of bin Laden, who allegedly was murdered by SEALs a decade after his obituary notices.

Additionally, no one among the crew of the ship from which the White House reported bin Laden was buried at sea saw any such burial, and the sailors sent messages home to that effect. Somehow a burial was held onboard a ship on which there are constant watches and crew on alert at all hours, and no one witnessed it.

Additionally, the White House story of the alleged murder of bin Laden changed twice within the first 24 hours. The claim that Obama and his government watched the action transmitted live from cameras on the SEALs’ helmets was quickly abandoned, despite the release of a photo of the Obama regime intently focused on a TV set and alleged to be watching the live action. No video of the deed was ever released. To date there is no evidence whatsoever in behalf of the Obama regime’s claim. Not one tiny scrap. Just unsubstantiated self-serving claims.

Additionally, as I have made available on my website, witnesses interviewed by Pakistan TV reported that only one helicopter landed in Abbottabad and that when the occupants of the helicopter returned from the alleged bin Laden compound, the helicopter exploded on takeoff and there were no survivors. In other words, there was no bin Laden corpse to deliver to the ship that did not witness a burial and no SEAL hero to return who allegedly murdered an unarmed bin Laden. Moreover, the BBC interviewed residents in Abbottabad, including those next door to the alleged “bin Laden compound,” and all say that they knew the person who lived there and it was not bin Laden.


Any SEAL who was so totally stupid as to kill the unarmed “Terror Mastermind” would probably have been courtmartialed for incompetency. Look at the smiling face of the man Who Killed Bin Laden. He thinks that his claim that he murdered a man makes him a hero, a powerful comment on the moral degeneracy of Americans.

So what is this claim by Rob O’Neill about? He is presented as a “motivational speaker” in search of clients. What better ploy among gullible Americans than to claim “I am the one who shot bin Laden.” Reminds me of the western movie: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. What better way to give Rob O’Neill’s claim validity than for the Pentagon to denounce his revelation for breaking obligation to remain silent. The Pentagon claims that O’Neill by claiming credit has painted a big target sign on our door asking ISIS to come get us

What unbelievable nonsense. ISIS and anyone who believed Obama’s claim to have done in bin Laden already knew, if they believed the lie, that the Obama regime claimed responsibility for murdering an unarmed bin Laden. The reason the SEAL team was prevented from talking is that no member of the team was on the alleged mission,

Just as the ship from which bin Laden was allegedly buried has no witnesses to the deed, the SEAL unit, whose members formed the team that allegedly dispatched an unarmed Terrorist Mastermind rather than to take him into custody for questioning, mysteriously died in a helicopter crash when they were loaded in violation of procedures in an unprotected 1960s vintage helicopter and sent into a combat zone in Afghanistan shortly after the alleged raid on “bin Laden’s compound.”

For awhile there were news reports that the families of these dead SEALS do not believe one word of the government’s account. Moreover, the families reported receiving messages from the SEALs that suddenly they felt threatened and did not know why. The SEALs had been asking one another: “Were you on the bin Laden mission?” Apparently, none were. And to keep this a secret, the SEALs were sent to their deaths.

Anyone who believes anything the US government says is gullible beyond the meaning of the word.

    Thanks for this report. It’s good to remind us about stories that have fallen down the memory hole, such as the deaths of the SEAL team in Afghanistan.

    I admit I find the “dumped the body in the sea” part hard to follow, but what is the scam here?

    Suppose Bin Laden really did die in 2001. A decade later the government wants to fake tracking down and killing him to get a short term political boost. Why then release a cover story that he was living just down the road all this time from the military academy of one of our supposed allies, bother sending a helicopter into Pakistan, put out that he was executed mafia-style on the spot, or do the whole burial at sea thing? If you are going to just make this stuff up, why don’t you make up something plausible.

    Also, primary challenges to their incumbents are for Republicans. You should know that Democrats haven’t done that in over thirty years.

    It is very difficult to follow the trajectory of this still changing story.
    How did they establish DNA confirmation when that test only became this year or last year ( confirming in 4 to 8 ) hours.?
    Then there are the initial denials by Bin Ledeen of knowing or having anything to do on 911
    But soon those messages changed
    . Very soon it was also revealed that Pentagon and CIA were making videos out of nothing to show villainy and sexual perversion of Bin Ledeen and Saddam ( so much for American embrace of gay culture) . It was not then the quality of picture but the messages that buried those endeavors .
    But it also proves that government can create videos and sell it as authentic
    Bin Ledden has to be created and kept ‘ alive” to connect him to terrorism from Somalia to Phillipine. Wolfowitz was blaming Saddam from 1979 and again was eying in 1991 and was accusing him in 1993 . Ths time instead of directly blaming Saddam was connected to Bin Ledeen and Bin Ledeen was called the architect of 911.

    The alleged burial at sea was an obvious way to ensure that the ‘official account’ could not be actually disproved, hardly rocket science.

    If in a court of law, I kept changing my story and was known to have deliberately destroyed the evidence, who would believe my account? would you?

  5. Max Payne says:

    I read somewhere that they did capture Osama Bin Laden but he had some form of an explosive on his persons which he detonated inside the helicopter. I believe his wife was the one to make the claim so one should consider the motives of the source.

    If that did happen however nothing would be more embarrassing…so why not just claim it was all a successful mission (in assassinating Osama) and that the “second helicopter” carried his body away to verify with DNA testing.

    They did show a video of Osama Bin Laden watching the Egyptian uprising. So he must’ve been alive until then…. though I can’t tell if the NSA is really THAT GOOD at photo manipulation in videos.
