Very strange coincidence if you ask me that on May 1st 2010 that is when there was a failed car bomb attempt in Times Square and now exactly one year later President Obama announces the death of Osama Bin Laden....

Here is the wiki page of that failed car bomb attempt

Very strange that the failed car bomb attempt and announcement of death of OBL happens on same one year apart...

It's not a coincidence. It's called May day and a lot of newsworthy stuff happens on May Day. It's also the anniversary of the creation of the Illuminati. Kind of like a warped celebration if you will.

ETA: May 1st, 2003 is also the day Bush said Operation Iraqi freedom was "Mission Accomplished".

May 1st... every year, the hummingbirds come back to my neighborhood.

I know, OT, but certainly happier news.

The odds of any given thing falling on any given date are only 1 in 365, so every date does have lots of potential for coincidence.
Where things get more interesting is when people time events for a certain date for reasons that dont seem to be just a matter of convenience.

For example, we knew where bin laden was for months and we bomb pakistan without permissionall the time, and we just destroyedthebody anyway, so there was no reason not to bomb bin laden in feb. Instead we killed him on may 1- or claimed we did at least.
and mission accomplished may 1 2003; 21days to baghdad and exactly 21 more to declare victory on may day.
And of course Hitler was said to be dead on may 1- the death itself may or may not have happened even but the Commies tried to get to the fascist leader by mayday and they claim to have been successful.

So why the apparently conscious pressing or withholding of victory over personified threats on may 1?

I submit that it's just a holiday being observed by the state. Symbolically its the holiday after plowing and seeding, a turning point or milestone between hardwork and growth.
It was also the.Roman feast of the good goddess- protector of the people and state.

This is a public drama for the steering of society. You cantt just have it come out that bin laden died naturally last year and expect a good reaction. So when we found him or found out he was already gone or whatevwr we had a nice satiafying ritual on may day, so that after bin laden is dead people feel a warmer greener happier world for a while and prepare to move on to the next need of the state.

May 1st is the Occult/ Witches Coven New Year. Big things always happen on May 1st and they always will. If you want good information on these groups find "John Todd" on youtube. He was an ex Illuminati before he was killed by them. He has lots of interesting information on these groups.

Well done for noticing. Now take a step back so you can start viewing the bigger picture.
What connects the two events?
