It Wasn't About Osama 

Pin It

Osama bin Laden is officially dead. Nothing will change. None of this was about 9/11.

Fact One: The mid-October invasion of Afghanistan was planned months prior to 9/11/01 and signed by Bush on Sept. 10, 2001. Without 9/11, we would be there under another pretext.

Fact Two: The Ummat, a Pakistani daily newspaper, ran an exclusive September 2001 interview with Osama in which he denied any involvement in 9/11. It is posted at

Fact Three: Seven of the 19 “hijackers” are alive today in Saudi Arabia.

Fact Four: 9/11 was never mentioned on Osama’s FBI wanted poster. When asked why in 2006, they said, “We have no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11” ( Alleged confession videos were not enough to alter this view.

Fact Five: After U.S. intelligence lost contact with Osama in late 2001, the international press reported on his funeral at the same time. Rather than investigate, U.S. media ignored this. The exception was Fox in late December 2001. Benazar Bhutto and former Inter-Services Intelligence head General Hamid Gul both said he died in 2001.

Fact Six: Al Qaeda is a CIA creation, not Osama’s. It was (is) a list (a database) of operatives used against the Soviets in Afghanistan in the 1980s and later in Yugoslavia in the 1990s. Osama was a CIA asset as late as September 2001. The Libya “rebels” are Al Qaeda operatives brought in by the CIA.

Questions 1 and 2: Did you know about any of this? Who benefits from your continued ignorance?

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.
