Experts already begin to come forward with
revelations that Latest tape just another

Spying? Torture? Illegal airstrikes? SHUT
UP and hate Bin Laden.
The NeoCon use of Osama Bin Laden as a
tool of fear and control is a tried and tested method whenever the going
gets tough. It's predictable and it's tiresome, but the masses buy it every
time and that's why he has reappeared once again.
Just as the NSA spying tidal wave gathers
increasing momentum, as the media demand more answers on rendition and torture
and days after the bizarre airstrike on innocent women and children in Pakistan,
we all magically get a timely reminder of just why the government is spying
on its own citizens and torturing and killing anyone it likes anywhere in
Just like Orwell's ubiquitous Emmanuel
Goldstein, Bin Laden always seems to pop up right on cue so
we can disengage our minds from reality and join in the two
We are reliably informed by the mainstream
media that this is because he is a very clever man and has an impeccable
sense of timing. Yet if this is the case, why can he not work out that EVERYTIME
he has released a video or a tape it has HELPED Bush and the NeoCon agenda
Even the BBC lays this out in the open
with the headline Bin
Laden threats may boost Bush:
The commander-in-chief has been under
intense pressure in recent weeks, accused of trampling on civil liberties
in pursuit of terror suspects. His defence has been that America is a nation
at war. So Bin Laden's latest threats to launch new attacks on the US will
only serve to underline this argument.
The White House will also cite the tape when trying
to convince allies abroad that the use of tough tactics is justified - even
when civilians are killed, as in last week's air raid in Pakistan.
That just says it all really.
Bin Laden was created by US intelligence , worked with
US intelligence in the late 70s and 80s, was used as a patsy by US intelligence
before and after 911 and is now being used as a manipulative tool of fear
by the criminal elite faction currently in power in the US.
The last time Bin Laden appeared was October 2004,
days before the election.
The same headline "Boost
for Bush" appeared and some, including Walter
Conkite went as far as to suggest that the whole thing was
manufactured by Karl rove in order to secure the election for Bush.
The Tehran Times suggested that Bin Laden was "dancing
to Bush’s tune" and a "premeditated plan devised
by Bush administration neoconservatives is unfolding". The report also
noted that the CIA immediately confirmed the tape to be the voice of Bin
Laden, something they had never previously done. They have also done this
this time around too.
Bin Laden personally criticized Bush's reaction on
the day of 911, a move that undoubtedly instilled a rejuvenated support
for the President amongst the American sheeple.
If Bin Laden is so clever and so calculated and determined
to justify himself to the American people, why can he not fathom that a
personal attack could only ever help Bush? I thought it was common knowledge
that you always steer clear of personal attacks in debates and arguments.
Bush immediately took a
six point lead and subsequently won the election.
Of course, we shouldn't find it surprising that Bin
Laden consistently helps Bush, after all it was the Bush Administration
all members of the Bin Laden family to fly out of America immediately
after 911 whilst all other air traffic was grounded.
It was Bush himself who signed document W199I,
ordering the FBI to back off investigating the Bin Ladens before 911.
It was George W Bush who went
into business with Bin laden's brother in the 1970s.
It is George W Bush's father who is STILL DOING business
with the Bin Ladens via
the Carlyle Group, an international consulting firm.
FBI Special agent
Robert Wright broke down when testifying that he had been gagged
and could not reveal the true extent of what he knew about the Bush-Bin
Laden connection and 911. his lawyer stepped up and said live on C-Span
that "The Bush Family vacations with the Bin Ladens".
The ties run deep and all lead to money,
huge amounts of money. This is how the Bushes do business, this is how they
have always done business, they own the best
enemies money can buy.
Previous to the 2004 election, Bin Laden surfaced on
a video on the eve of the two year anniversary of 911. Once again impeccable
timing to deliver a video, given that he was reported to be hiding in the
mountains of Pakistan.
However, the video was quickly recognized by experts
as simply a re-hash
of old material cobbled together quickly and so amateurish
that it could not have fooled anyone.
Previous to the beginning of the Iraq war, Bin Laden
appeared in February 2003 on an audio tape that was touted
as proof positive of Al Qaeda links with Saddam Hussein.
In another amazing timing coincidence, the tape came
barely a week after Colin powell's attempts to link Al Qaeda and Saddam
in his botched presentation of lies and exaggerations before the UN Security
In an even more bizarre twist, just hours before the
tape was found and aired by AlJazeera, Colin Powell announced in the US
Senate that a "Bin Laden tape is coming proving Iraq’s links
How does Colin Powell know what AlJazeera are going
to broadcast before they do?
The tape voiced support for Iraq, but did not prove
any link between al-Qaeda and the Iraqi leadership. It was described as
dubious at best and at worst as an outright fake.
Previous to this tape a poor quality release in November
2002, deemed to be completely authentic by US Experts, was determined to
be a total
fake by the Dalle Molle Institute for Perceptual Artificial
Intelligence in Switzerland.
This time Bin Laden was said to be admitting to recent
small scale terror attacks. Yet the voice on the tape was different to around
twenty previous recordings of Bin Laden.
And of course, then there is the all time classic Bin
Laden video, the number one hit from december 2001. The one we like to call
nosed" Bin Laden video.
This one was magically found
in a house in Jalalabad after anti-Taliban forces moved in.
It featured a fat Osama laughing and joking about how he'd carried out 9/11.
The video was also mistranslated
in order to manipulate viewer opinion and featured "Bin Laden"
praising two of the hijackers, only he got their names wrong.
This Osama also uses the wrong hand to write with and
wears gold rings, a practice totally in opposition to the Muslim faith.
Despite the fact that the man in the video looks nothing
like Bin Laden, the CIA stood by the video whilst many have declared it
an outright fake.
And so we come back to this week's tape, Osama's "latest
release". Already experts are coming forward to suggest that yet again
this is a fake that has been put out at a very convenient time to divert
attention away from important events.
Bruce Lawrence has described the tape as "like a voice
from the grave".
He thinks bin Laden is dead and has doubts about
the tape. Lawrence recently analyzed more than 20 complete speeches and
interviews of the al Qaida leader for his book. He says the new message
is missing several key elements.
We have previously highlighted the evidence to suggest
Laden is dead. More and more experts are now coming forward
with the same opinion. Every time a new tape is released it seems to become
shorter and more vague as if whoever is making them is running out of material
to work with .
If it is conceivable that there is one group of fundamentalist
individuals who wish to change the way we live because "they hate our
freedom", then it is equally as conceivable that there is another group
of richer, more sophisticated fundamentalists that wish to do the same thing
themselves and will use the first group as a cover for what they do.
They have groomed Bin Laden for their own ends and
will continue to use his image (whether he is dead or not) until they no
longer have a cause to, this is simply another example of his usefulness
in the fake war on terror.
