The Osama bin Laden Myth by Paul Craig Roberts

Paul Craig Roberts | Infowars.com
November 26, 2012

The interview below with Osama bin Laden was conducted by the Karachi, Pakistan, daily newspaper, Ummat and published on September 28, 2001, 17 days after the alleged, but unsubstantiated, al Qaeda attack of September 11, 2001, on the World Trade Center twin towers and Pentagon. The interview was sensational. The alleged “mastermind” of 9/11 said that he and al Qaeda had nothing to do with the 9/11 attack. The British Broadcasting Corporation’s World Monitoring Service had the interview translated into English and made public on September 29, 2001.

Osama bin Laden’s sensational denial was not reported by the US print and TV media. It was not investigated by the executive branch. No one in the US Congress called attention to bin Laden’s refusal of responsibility for the greatest humiliation ever inflicted on a superpower.

To check my memory of the lack of coverage, I googled “Osama bin Laden’s interview denying responsibility for 9/11.” Some Internet sites reproduced the interview, but the only mainstream news source that I found was a 1 minute YouTube video from CNN in which the anchor, after quoting an al Jazeera report of bin Laden’s denial, concludes that “we can all weigh that in the scale of credibility and come to our own conclusions.” In other words, bin Laden had already been demonized, and his denial was not credible.

Roberts is the quintessential ostracized former insider

Agreed, it's best to get this straight from the horse's mouth: www.paulcraigroberts.org The fact that others that might be seen as 'fringe' republish his writting does not mean Roberts does not do his own research or write from his own knowledge or take initiative from such 'perceived-as fringe' publications themselves.

Paul Craig Roberts is excellent but ...

I love to read Paul Craig Roberts.

He is an ex policy maker, and ex inside man on the government.

But once again, I was dissapointed when I clicked on the link, to find myself on the website of the stupid, egotistical, lying, disinformation shill Alexander bullhorn Jones.

This Alex Jones guy is the type of shill, where you take a important topic, and he then puts outlandish spin on it like adding in things to make people that regurgitate this mush look stupid.

I will be a happy man, when I never see this idiot, Alex Jones posted on Daily Paul ever again!!

And what is more annoying. Whenever I search for something on the internet, and I am looking for REAL information. Well this assholes website or Youtube video turns up every time. It pollutes my search for the truth, and the high hit ratio on search engines, as well as the lies he regurgitates just confirms what I already know about this creep.

If you want information from PCR, then go straight to his website http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/

alex jones continues to win the infowar

... and all attempts to tear the liberty rloveution apart continue to FAIL. Nice bid, bid. FAIL.

tune in now for a great interview with Lord Monckton

Yes

... I can hardly find any topic without his stupid site coming up in Google.

You know he works for the government right? He is mr disinfo no 1 !

His website is full of lies. And people who go there are like flies trapped in a spiders web. He will no doubt have a file on you if you have posted there.

Im sick of this shit

You people are making us look stupid by posting unsubstantiated bullshit on our front page. This article makes all kinds of claims that it does not back up with credible evidence. For example, the author of this article claims that 30 members of SEAL Team 6 were killed when their chopper was shot down in 2011, following the Bin Laden raid. In reality, 15 members were killed. You people are making us look stupid by allowing this shit to be on the front page.

Exactly what then, has been substantiated?

The burden of substantiation is with those making claims of evidence. There simply has been no evidence released other than evidence that shows that nobody has seen any evidence. It is not Robert's burden to show proof that there is no evidence to back up the Navy's claims but instead the Navy's burden to show proof that they did what they claim to have done. Besides the fact that the Navy can not produce a single witness to the burial at sea, the Navy has not been able to at all show that all the Seals were present and accounted for after the first helecopter crash which we know for certain took place in the compound in Pakistan yet we are to believe all of the men aboard that helicoper later died in a subsequent helicopter crash.

And such is also entirely seperate from the unequivocal reality that despite the supposed greatest law enforcement effort in the history of the country, the most competent agents of this country's law enforcement entities were unable and are still to this day unable to find evidence to substantiate an indictment in absentia against OBL for any crimes committed after August of 1998.

Is it Possible You Are Con-fused ?

Perhaps he should’ve said -- 31

http://www.rationalskepticism.org/conspiracy-theories/31-sea...

“The SEALs which killed bin Laden were from Red Squadron in DEVGRU/ST6. The 15 SEALs who died in the Taliban attack on the helicopter were from Gold Squadron in DEVGRU/ST6.
Stop reading Iranian propaganda."

... or in-fused to mythical proportions by government in-duced con-spy-racy ( as Bob Marley would say)?

Hey I hear you

I have a skeptical eye to everything not just the msm and govt. just cause its on the Internet doesn't make it true and I look at it all with open curiosity. But the constant blasting from some that everything we see is not and people are robotic idiots unless they believe every conspiracy theory gets old too.

What your MSM also failed to report was

the Taliban stating that when the US government gave them solid proof of Osamas involvement in 9/11, then they would hand him over to an international court. Of course there was no "proof" forthcoming, only bombs, and the international court looked the other way.

Keeping it...

bumped.

Big bump
