If someone could confirm the allegation....
they'd probably show up in some morgue
OBL was probably a 'asset', only the CIA didn't understand that they were being played...
there's long been a submerged group of what we westerners would call zealots...take the blind Shiek Rachmann (sp?) and the cohorts he grouped
with...mostly in and around Germany & Amsterdam, back in the late '70s and thru the '80s.
the CIA tried to 'play' the zealots & Jihadists in many ways, but it was all destined to blowback at some future date, target; the
trying to 'buy' respect and favor...secret programs were set into operation
presumably to elevate the middle easterners in global status, the idea was to train commercial pilots to return to and pilot the far & middle east
airline routes. One of the 1st schooling operations centers was in Scottsdale AZ,
where safe houses in Scottsdale were available & would be accomodating enough for the upscale Saudi students....most of the late '80s & up to the mid
'90s saw groups of 6-8 young Arab men attend the several flight schools in the AZ area.
indeed, the 'Tim Osmans' and others were guests of the CIA/specialOps/??
as the Wahabbi & Jihadists & zealots, kept their real intentions secret from the arrogant westerners.
=>> The Druse
have a word for this.....
=(dissimulation) a practice whereby one conceals their true beliefs...outwardly one even accepts the religious beliefs, the moral codes
and whatnot of those who they are temporarily living amongst...
even as they secretly retain their true convictions.
~~a valuable survival ploy, eh?~~ plus that ploy/mindset excaped the CIAs awareness...
even after the 1st attempted bombing of WTC in '93?
