"The Obama regime’s story of the murder of bin Laden is nonsensical. The fact that the regime would tell such a preposterous story indicates that Washington regards the American and international public as gullible morons, people lacking any ability to discern the truth of what they are officially told.
Who can believe that the “terror mastermind,” the head of what is said to be the most dangerous terrorist organization in the world, would be left alone, unguarded and unarmed, with only two women to protect him?"~~ Paul Craig Roberts

When is the last time the US government told the truth about anything? Despite an unbroken history of lies, the word of the US government still carries weight, especially with gullible Americans....
The Obama regime’s story of the murder of bin Laden is nonsensical. The fact that the regime would tell such a preposterous story indicates that Washington regards the American and international public as gullible morons, people lacking any ability to discern the truth of what they are officially told.
Who can believe that the “terror mastermind,” the head of what is said to be the most dangerous terrorist organization in the world, would be left alone, unguarded and unarmed, with only two women to protect him? Who can believe that such a defenseless person with such essential information for Washington’s war on terror would simply be shot on sight by US Navy SEALs? Why would Washington waste such an archive of information?
Why would Washington forego the triumph of parading their captive before the world and confronting him in a courtroom with his crimes?
Why would Washington dump the body secretly into the sea without even having photographic evidence to back the story? Why would Washington tell such a preposterous story for which it can supply no evidence whatsoever?
Why would Obama, faced with a reelection campaign, forego the patriotic publicity of a White House ceremony at which he pins medals on the victorious SEALs? What politician would forego such an opportunity?
Do you really believe that the SEALs’ identity had to be protected in order to keep them safe from terrorists, or that Obama would let his reelection take a backseat to such a consideration?
No politician would handle the capture of Osama bin Laden in such a politically wasteful way. Can you imagine a politician throwing away such marvelous opportunities for PR events? Can you imagine an intelligence service destroying such a valuable source of information without interrogating Osama bin Laden?
Now consider this: The Obama regime claims to have given bin Laden a proper Muslim burial at sea from an aircraft carrier, the Carl Vinson, named after a U.S. Representative from Georgia who served in the House for more than 50 years and is known as “the father of the two-ocean Navy.” The aircraft carrier has approximately 6,000 personnel. From emails that sailors sent home to family and friends, none witnessed the sea burial of bin Laden.
When the story of the emails got out, Washington quickly announced that bin Laden’s burial was conducted in secret and that no one but a few officers were involved.
Think about this for a minute. First of all, here again is a massive victory over the forces of terrorism being kept from sailors whose moral it would have raised. Why keep a moral-boosting victory over terrorist evil from the crew of a deployed warship? What was achieved by the secrecy?
Why give up the photography of such an important American victory that could so well stimulate patriots’ worship of Obama? It makes no sense whatsoever.
Second, do you really believe that an at-sea burial can be conducted on a ship with 6,000 personnel with watches being kept, with sailors on deck performing a variety of necessary functions, and no one saw? I mean, really! 6,000 people on one ship, and no one saw? Were they all locked in their bunks?
Now consider the fate of SEAL Team 6, whose members allegedly murdered Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad. Shortly after the alleged hit on bin Laden, SEAL team 6 was wiped out in Afghanistan. The Obama regime claims that a helicopter carrying the SEAL team was shot down by the Taliban.
Just as the Bush regime’s story of 9/11 ran into opposition from the 9/11 families, the Obama regime’s story of the SEALs’ demise ran into opposition from SEAL families who studied the documents that comprised the Obama regime’s account. I don’t remember if I wrote about the SEAL families’ challenge to the government’s story, but I did some interviews about the families’ disbelief. The interviews or some of them would be posted on my website, such as http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2013/07/28/obamas-seal-team-6-coverup-explosive-paul-craig-roberts-interview/
The SEAL team families noticed that normal deployment operational procedures were not followed, that the entire SEAL team was loaded on a 50-year old Vietnam war era helicopter and not dispersed as required on their normal modern attack helicopters, and that a variety of other procedures devised to protect such expensively trained special forces were not followed. SEAL team members, according to parents, had written home expressing concerns about their safety. One told his father he had made a will. According to parents, the SEALs themselves sensed that they were in danger from internal forces, not from the external enemy.
Of course, there is no proof. The criminal Obama regime will not indict itself. But, just as the Carl Vinson sailors did not witness any at-sea burial of Osama bin Laden, the members of the SEAL team were asking each other, ”who was on the mission that got bin Laden?”
As it turned out, none were. Fearful of the emails that would follow the SEAL team’s discovery that no one was on the mission, the team was eliminated.
Yes, I know, Hollywood made a movie of the heroic SEAL team’s exploit in murdering an unguarded, unarmed “Terror Mastermind.” An alleged SEAL wrote a book describing the “victory” of eliminating, prior to interrogation, the source of all terrorist plots, leaving the Americans in the total dark. The movie and book are likely nothing but organized propaganda to support the government’s lie.
Considering the gullibility of Americans, little doubt that the movie and book were successful. It plays to the emotions of uninformed and unaware Americans that they have won. They are equally happy when their favorite football team defeats the rival. The happiest days experienced by a generation is when Auburn defeats Alabama or vice versa, or Georgia Tech defeats Georgia or vice versa. Americans are addicted to winning, and they remember these victories forever. Little else is important to them. Obama told them that they had defeated Osama bin Laden, who had died ten years before of terminal illnesses prior to his staged murder in a propaganda event, and that is all that is important to Americans. They won. “We beat bin Laden!” And Obama won. Despite his sell-out of his every constituency and his transparent lies, Obama won reelection.
Obama is an anomaly. He is a warmonger who won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Keep in mind that prior to the Obama regime’s announcement that the indispensable, exceptional country had killed bin Laden, Obama’s standing was so low that the Democrats were discussing running a candidate against him for the Democratic presidential nomination.
By faking an American victory over the demonized bogyman, Obama
dispensed with threats to his reelection.
Thus, with Osama bin Laden, we have a man who only died twice.
