In reply to comment: poor reporting job.. (see in situ)

that goes without saying, which in fact proves Sy Hersh's main

point that modern journalism is 'journalism.'

but, if you actually read the article carefully, the Guardian scribe does allude, that part of Sy's upcoming new book is (or is most likely) about just that:

Hersh is writing a book about national security and has devoted a chapter to the bin Laden killing. He says a recent report put out by an "independent" Pakistani commission about life in the Abottabad compound in which Bin Laden was holed up would not stand up to scrutiny. "The Pakistanis put out a report, don't get me going on it. Let's put it this way, it was done with considerable American input. It's a bullshit report," he says hinting of revelations to come in his book.

now, that said, your following question,

poor reporting job..the reporter didn't ask how he knew the Bin Laden story was all a lie. Ie. does Hersh have proof that Bin Laden dead several years before that?

could equally be re-directed, and be asked the same of the entire MYTH of the caricature cutout that govt has 'provided' and their sycophantic douche pressitute parrots propagandized for decades, to:

poor reporting job.. not many asked govt and MSM, HOW they knew that the Bin Laden story, as they claim, is the truth?? Ie. do US Govt and MSM have proof that solely Bin Laden & 'his' Al-CIA-da orchestrated 9/11? Or, that Bin Laden WASN'T already dead, several years BEFORE the purported Bin Laden Raid, as even Madeleine Albright plausibly mused, and Steve Pieczenik and Benazir Bhutto emphatically stated?

Why the double standard: why NOT equal opportunity scrutiny & skepticism vs. govt, as much as vs. the citizenry simply questioning the govt & MSM's 'official' narrative?

I saw them offer no proof, other than to claim that they already knew OBL & Al-CIA-da to be responsible ON 9/11, even though C_nty Rice 'claimed':

"No one could have imagined them taking a plane, slamming it into the Pentagon" -- I'm paraphrasing now -- "into the World Trade Center, using planes as a missile."

despite the fact that laughably, for anyone not with their heads up their arses, ANYONE can find out that US Military already war-gamed this, on one early occasion, 2yrs BEFORE 9/11, and another? Like, whoa man, OMG like, um like no way, like what a coinkydink: they were RUNNING THAT SAME EXACT DRILL ON 9/11!!!

USA Today: NORAD had drills of jets as weapons

And this, is from AP wire:
Agency planned exercise on Sept. 11 built around a plane crashing into a building

Nope, nothing to see here: These aren't the Droids you're looking for! Move along!

Now if govt is an entity with a track record of honesty and trust, sure it would be wholly logical to initially give them the benefit of the doubt, but considering the reality of their trackrecord? They have less credibility than your run of the mill street corner junkie or a $2 meth whore, at this juncture in history, for anybody paying attention.

Sure, they knew nothing about OBL, nor were they tracking him. LOL.

If they 'didn't know, nor thought such elaborate attacks were even possible,' how did they know TO accuse him, ON 9/11 before ANY investigation actually began?

Oops, Ghouliani had all the evidence carted off 1st to landfill, then shipped off to China to be sold as scrap.

Anyone see govt even follow their own SOP NTSB protocol investigation after every plane involved incident? As in, did they take out an airplane hangar and lay out each recovered part, as if one were to take every component of a commercial airliner and lay 'em out, as if to put them together for the first time, like a child looking over mangled parts of a Lego set that he wants to build into something looking like a plane, at all purported three attack locations in NYC, DC, & PA??

Like this one?


Sure, they warehoused some, but unlike almost every airliner accidents before 9/11 where it's frankly a media circus (to remind the peons that 'see, this is what govt professionals do; watch and observe our competence pixie dust magic!') TO cover the warehouse/hangar where all the recovered parts are laid out, to attempt to reconstruct what actually happened, beyond analyzing the orange 'blackbox'-FDA (Flight Data Recorder), and examine the post-accident physical debris evidence.

None of that happened, to the extent that they touted in the past. Nor, was it made public, in the same manner as in the past.

Yes, got media circus?

Not you (as I have no idea what your personal position on 9/11 Truth is, nor can I recall if I ever discussed this topic with you @DP in the past), particularly, but anytime these incidents occur, there are always the 'skeptics' who constantly go after just people asking common sense questions. But, even more ironically hilarious, is how their default position is ALWAYS TO defend the Govt & the MSM line, as if they saw no reason to question the validity of THEIR claims and scrutinize THEIR absurdity as much as they love haranguing the citizenry simply asking genuine, logical questions.

What's even more doubly surprising, is the fact that some of the most rabid faux-skeptics (because a real skeptic would actually weigh evidence and/or claims and study them, BEFORE dismissing them a-priori) are among the self-proclaimed so called 'libertarians.' It's like, they trust nothing else that govt ever does, or claims, or has done or claimed, yet 9/11, the single event in which the entire domestic policestate and illegal wars/occupation moron 'foreign policy' rationale is predicated upon, they're too pussy to question??

LOL. Yeah, "philosophically principled and pure," indeed. NOT!

I got one word for such 'skeptics:' Iridium.
