    THE ROVING EYE

    More questions on 9/11

    By Pepe Escobar


    Osama "dead or alive" bin Laden would rather lose his kidney than pass up the opportunity to celebrate the eighth anniversary of September 11, 2001, on the United States. And like clockwork, he resurfaced in an 11-minute, al-Sahab-produced audiotape last week (sorry, no video, just a still picture), where he states how a series of grievances had "pushed us to undertake the events of [September 11]".

    But there may be no mobile dialysis machine operating in a mysterious cave somewhere in one of the Waziristan tribal areas of Pakistan after all. According to David Ray Griffin's new book, Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive? and based on a Taliban leader's remarks at the time, the mellifluous Saudi jihadi died of kidney failure in Tora Bora on December 13, 2001. Problem is, by that time, according to local mujahideen, Bin Laden had already escaped across the mountains with a bunch of al-Qaeda diehards to Parachinar, in Pakistan, and then to a shadowy underworld.

    A decoy? A ghost? The devil himself? Who cares? Bin Laden, the brand, is still very good for ("war on terror") business. All this with the Barack Obama administration insisting the US is fighting the elusive, seemingly eternal Taliban leader Mullah Omar and the Taliban plus al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, while General Stanley McChrystal - General David Petraeus' former top death squad operator in Iraq - insists there is no al-Qaeda in Afghanistan (but he wants up to 40,000 extra troops anyway).

    The headline I want to see:


    HEADLINE: BREAKING NEWS
    Osama bin Laden Fallen

    The U.S. has just confirmed that an attack on an entourage of Afghani and Saudi nationals has taken the lives of Osama bin Laden and all of his top advisors, many of whom were considered instrumental in planning the infamous 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City.

    Also, forthcoming are rare documents carried by the caravan that intelligence officials say prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that 19 Arab terrorists singlehandedly commandeered four U.S. commercial airliners, and were solely responsible for the havoc that followed, including the damaging and collapse of the World Trade Center.

    Other memos captured describe the shock of bin Laden at hearing the news of 9/11 and his subsequent belief that he had overplayed his hand, thus bringing destruction upon his followers, as well as snuffing his plans for future world terrorist activities. The Al Qaeda leader was described as downcast and depressed in his last days, often contemplating suicide, and bemoaning the fate of his followers at the hands of the great satan, the United States. His personal assistant who had taken ill and escaped the ambush told members of the press that bin Laden was toying with the idea of a Christian conversion just hours before his sudden death.

    Osama bin Laden...dead at the age of 52.

    The impossible headline to top all headlines would be: Osama bin Laden turns himself in to U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The terrorist leader denounced his past terrorist activities and threw himself at the mercy of the U.S. government and the American people. He said he was ashamed of all the murders and destruction to which he was a part and wanted to cleanse himself of his past by standing trial for all his atrocities. "I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me," he said, "this is just something I have to do to clear my conscience."

    Why? MJ is somewhere in Nevada with Elvis. I'm sure zg will assure us that bin Laden's death was faked. Look for him in Carson City celebrating his escape with 19 other Arab celebrants.

    Why? Because by burying him there the Never Land folks could use him as a tourist attraction and over time the ticket and vendor sales would produce a massive amount of revenue thus proving that, in the end capitalism rules!!!.
