For me, this says it all: “America’s secret asset - Bin laden.”
I personally believe that the U.S. Government has used bin Laden to provide the “fear factor” necessary to enable GW Bush and Cheney to invade
Iraq and push through new legislation giving the President unprecedented political powers. Like the ability to engage U.S. military forces without
Congressional approval and the enactment of the Patriot Act, which essentially takes away many civil rights of American citizens. I believe that
President Obama continues that by recently approving U.S. military involvement in Lybia.
I can’t believe that the U.S. Government with all its resources and money has been unable to find bin Laden for 10 years. I had always thought that
the U.S. Government had him held up someplace and would audio tape him from time to time to keep the fear factor going. After all, what is the secret
behind sales? To convince the buyer that they “need” your product. In this case, the U.S. Government’s “product” is fear. Once the
American public bought into the lie that bin Laden and Muslim extremists were behind the 9/11 attacks, the floodgates opened up for President Bush and
Vice President Cheney to push through new legislation that set the stage for America to become a police state. Even though the War Powers Act of 1973
attempted to maintain the system of checks and balances in the U.S. Government. Bush used the fear factor to manipulate the American public into
allowing him to by-pass that legislation. Does anyone recall the hysteria that Donald Rumsfeld and General Colin Powell whipped up agitating the
American public into going along with an invasion of Iraq, supposedly on the pretext that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction? Does anyone
recall how Germany and France kept stressing that the inspectors had found no evidence what-so-ever that those WMD existed in Iraq? Does anyone
recall how Germany and France both called for America to show restraint and wait until proof was found before invading Iraq? Does anyone recall how
Rumsfeld and Powell pushed by those checks and continued with their frantic claims that Saddam indeed possessed WMD and the U.S. "needed" to invade
Iraq to keep the world safe from terrorists who might get hold of Saddam's WMD's? And does anyone recall that absolutely no WMD were ever found in
Iraq? And BTW: what did Navy SEALS securing Iraq's oil fields have to do with WMD anyway?
See below information on the War Powers Act:
“The War Powers Resolution of 1973 (50 U.S.C. 1541-1548) is a federal law intended to check the power of the President in committing the United
States to an armed conflict without the consent of Congress.
The Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists (Pub.L. 107-40, 115 Stat. 224, enacted September 18, 2001), one of two resolutions
commonly known as "AUMF" (the other being "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002"), was a joint resolution
passed by the United States Congress on September 14, 2001, authorizing the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the
attacks on September 11, 2001. The authorization granted the President the authority to use all "necessary and appropriate force" against those whom
he determined "planned, authorized, committed or aided" the September 11th attacks, or who harbored said persons or groups. The AUMF was signed by
President George W. Bush on September 18, 2001.
The AUMF was unsuccessfully cited by the George W. Bush administration in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the
administration's military commissions at Guantanamo Bay were not competent tribunals as constituted and thus illegal.
The AUMF has also been cited by the administration as authority for engaging in electronic surveillance in some cases without obtaining a warrant of
the special Court as required by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) of 1978.”
Basically President Bush’s administration used the fear factor produced by Whitehouse spin doctors to escalate Presidential powers to unprecedented
levels. Consider the following:
“The President has broad constitutional power to take military action in response to the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11,
2001. Congress has acknowledged this inherent executive power in both the War Powers Resolution and the Joint Resolution passed by Congress on
September 14, 2001.
The President has constitutional power not only to retaliate against any person, organization, or State suspected of involvement in terrorist attacks
on the United States, but also against foreign States suspected of harboring or supporting such organizations.
The President may deploy military force preemptively against terrorist organizations or the States that harbor or support them, whether or not they
can be linked to the specific terrorist incidents of September 11.”
Consider what the Patriot Act allows:
Title I: Enhancing Domestic Security against Terrorism
Title II: Surveillance procedures
Title III: Anti-money-laundering to prevent terrorism
Title IV: Border security
Title VI: Victims and families of victims of terrorism
Title VIII: Terrorism criminal law
Title IX: Improved Intelligence
It all sounds good on the surface if one believes that it is in place to protect American citizens. But as with so may things; it can be a
double-edged sword that can be used against American citizens also. After all, who exactly is a terrorist? The U.S. government, C.I.A., F.B.I. or
local police agencies can define terrorism any way they want. If I want to exercise my Constitutional right to have and bear arms, I may at some
point be considered a terrorist and subject to arrest and incarceration.
Personally, I think President Bush and President Obama both have known exactly where bin Laden has been “kept” by those used to keep him under
wraps. President Obama is failing miserably as a President and needs to bolster his ratings. In that regard, it’s time to pull off something big
to get reelected i.e., capturing or killing bin Laden. Didn’t the Whitehouse spin doctors do a wonderful job of inspiring American patriotism after
reporting bin Laden’s demise? But I’m left wondering why the photos of his corpse have not been released.
As far as I’m concerned, this whole matter is simply about maintaining Presidential power and since President Obama appears to be the current
political stooge that the NWO is using as their Presidential puppet, trying to keep him in office.
Maybe watching the documentary called, “Zeitgeist” would enlighten some folks about what evidence has been uncovered pointing to alleged U.S.
government involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Part 2 of Zeitgeist describes the inconsistencies in what was told to us about the events surrounding
Sept. 11, and provides evidence to show who the writers believe really was responsible for the attacks. The evidence shown in Zeitgeist is
overwhelmingly convincing that our beloved government as up it its eyeballs in that event. And in my opinion, “that” is true terrorism
perpetrated against the American people. Forget worrying about foreign or even home grown terrorists, the real terrorists to be concerned about are
right here in our own government!
