I suppose one of the main things that bothered me was this sentence:
This article is a pretty good synopsis about the materials recovered in the raid on the OBL compound. It alludes to the fact that there was actionable
intel discovered but remains vague about the details.
because it did not include "supposed" or "alleged," but seems to echo the fact that, according to official sources, these things were *indeed*
found, even if the details were vague. Perhaps argument was the wrong term on my part, as it should have read premise of the OP.
And no, you can't poke holes until you until you know what the official story is, with which i think i agreed, but my point in that the official
"story" started out with holes so big that it automatically makes it suspect, as the officials try to fill in said holes and contradictions. That's
kinda the point.
As for the rest of your particular post
, i agree, and especially with the
communications part (and have also posted in another thread or two). How could they be there for X amount of time and not identify him, even though
they could see him, nor could they pick up ANY kinda of communication (even his voice from talking to people around the compound, which they could
then use their so-accurate voice analysis), and basically got nothing, but somehow some courier's telephone call tipped the whole thing off which
resulted in the seal assassination (and why, after the intel as supposed confirmed, did they need the team? It seems the "neighbors" could have
moved back in, if they had left, and sniped him. Why such a large force? And the whole suicide vest thing is laughable, too, IMO. Does he sleep in one
night after night, year after year? Was HE tipped that something might happen so he decided to wear it that night, that week, what)? How is it that if
he had been living there no one in the town seemed to know, and to this day many of them
still don't believe
Just too many things don't make sense. And as Judge Judy says....
IMO, it seems like the "officials" are, instead of putting together a true, accurate story, and using whatever intelligence/information they acquire
to fit it into the holes in their story, so that they can back-peddle less, trying to maintain a semblance or illusion of accuracy with their initial,
albeit contradictory, statements, and doesn't leave the story *as* open to severely questioning people, like us.
But that is the picture i have in my head, and everything new i personally see or hear seems to corroborate it. I too am only filling in the holes,
accepting and rejecting information.
So yeah, we're on the same page, we just seem to be processing things a little differently.
There's just too much that reeks here. And yes, i am also gathering information daily, and it all seems to contribute to the reeking pile.
But that's just how i see it.
