The Osama Bin Laden File

(2 pm. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

The National Security Archive at George Washington University has been releasing numerous Government documents and reports the past couple of days on bin Laden, our Government as related to him and that region especially Pakistan. The criminal cronies, both in and out of the Government at the time they took over from the Clinton administration to 9/11 and beyond have been coming out of the closet, including their talking heads, trying to justify their policies, especially as to torture, illegal by our laws and the international laws we help establish, that they should share in the take down of bin Laden or should receive the glory from.

Frankly they’re raising more questions by their tactic, questions that have been there the whole past decade some being answered with hard evidence that has leaked out and coming from the Iraq War Inquiries.

If their torture tactics, which caused greater damage to the soldiers sent into these two theaters in blowback, worked so great Why were they not taking any little leads, like the one the press keeps running to and following them to establish better intelligence?

Why, after greatly increasing the billions sent to Pakistan that that country wasn’t much much more involved in seeking out bin Laden and al Qaeda?

Why did bush stop the Tora Bora operation?

Why did bush admit he rarely thought about bin Laden?

And one real big question, Why were they seeking to take down Saddam and talking about doing so before 9/11, on 9/11 and directly after 9/11, leading to abandoning Afghanistan to fester and grow and destroy Iraq and it’s people?  

Why did it take, and cause a couple of more years of delay, the new administration to dig up a few little nuggets of information from the previous years and add that to the intelligence gathering they implemented to find bin Laden and take him out?

So many more questions and in a Country that doesn’t seek Accountability in it’s arrogance and apathy while condemning others for similar!

One more question, why are the bigger mainstream media outlets just hanging on the one report about one little tidbit of intelligence to seemingly not only justify our total collapse into ignoring our laws and moral compass, that we use in condemning others, and not asking the hard questions of why it caused delay and took longer to find and take out the leader of the Original Mission bin Laden and to try and weaken and destroy al Qaeda instead of helping them in their recruiting in Afghanistan, Iraq and the region as well as around the planet

Pakistan’s Bin Laden Policy

Declassified Documents Show Pakistani Refusal to Help Apprehend Terrorist before 9/11

National Security Archive Electronic Briefing Book No. 344 Posted – May 5, 2011

1998 State Deparment talking points describe unsuccessful efforts, through Pakistan, to have Bin Laden expelled from Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.

May 5, 2011 – As the discovery of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan, raises fresh questions about U.S.-Pakistan relations, newly released documents show that as early as 1998 U.S. officials concluded the Government of Pakistan “is not disposed to be especially helpful on the matter of terrorist Usama bin Ladin.” According to previously secret U.S. documents, Pakistani officials repeatedly refused to act on the Bin Laden problem, despite mounting pressure from American authorities. Instead, in the words of a U.S. Embassy cable, Pakistani sources “all took the line that the issue of bin Ladin is a problem the U.S. has with the Taliban, not with Pakistan.”

The documents in this compilation – part of the National Security Archive’s developing Osama Bin Laden File – were obtained by the Archive through the Freedom of Information Act. They reveal a history of “disappointment that Pakistan … a good friend of the U.S., was not taking steps to help with Usama bin Ladin (UBL.)” {continued with backlinks to further docs and reports}

  1. A number of times, as it came out from testimony and reports during the Chilcot Iraq War Inquiry and there’s much more. A couple of these are linked above. This is now hard evidence that should be dug into much deeper especially now that those involved and their lackeys are trying to claim their victory in the extremely failed policies they implemented in our names!

    Drip, drip, drip, “”He recalled noting that: “the dog didn’t bark – it grizzled.” Don’t forget – this ‘grizzling’ for regime change was 6 months BEFORE 9/11.””. drip, drip, drip,  “”But there was a ‘sea change’ in attitude after the atrocities, with former national security adviser Condoleezza Rice targeting Iraq on the very day of the outrage.””, drip, drip, drip, “”George Bush tried to make a connection between Iraq and al-Qaida in a conversation with Tony Blair three days after the 9/11 attacks, according to Blair’s foreign policy adviser of the time.””, drip, drip, drip, “”There was “a touching belief [in Washington] that we shouldn’t worry so much about the aftermath because it was all going to be sweetness and light”.””, drip, drip, drip, “”Boyce mentions the “dysfunctionalism” of Washington. He says that he would find himself briefing his American counterparts on what was happening in different parts of the US adminstration. Rumsfeld was not sharing information””, drip, drip, drip………..!

    Two possibilities. One, the obvious one, is that he was already dead. Many people believed he had kidney disease and died somewhere around 2002. Two, Al-qaida was run by friendly intelligence services as well as CIA.

    I think both is the case. There has been a long history of U.S. involvement with Islamic fundamentalists going back to the fifties support of the Muslim Brotherhood (to counter Nasser and left-leaning intellectuals that dominated intellectual life in Arab countries at the time. I think that support continued and was increased during the Soviet part of the Afghan War and continued after the Fall of the S.U. for practical reasons chief of which was to create a terrorist threat to replace the Soviet threat.

    As for the Pakistanis, their job was to support Islamic radicals and help the Americans in exchange for aid. They have done this and now look like they are going to be scapegoats in a beautifully Machiavellian move. It has been clear for the past few years that the U.S. wishes to weaken and dismember Pakistan for reasons I have not yet figure out–probably to seize nuclear weapons or neutralize them in some way or just use them as the new enemy (the new Oceania).

    The point is that OBL, the wars against Islam and so on are all ways for the U.S. government to keep and expand its power both internationally and domestically. Everything you hear, even released documents like Wikileaks are suspect. I trust nothing either in the MSM or stuff on the internet. All I can do is guess based on techniques that grew out of my study of Systems Analysis–to put it another way, see who benefits and follow the money.
