Finally

Friday, March 28th, 2008

To finally put this bin Laden subject to rest, I’ll end it with some last few words.

First, let me preface the entire statement with this: The following statement is my opinion. In no way am I able to substantiate any of the comments made nor am I able to vouch for the validity of the sources used to form that opinion. I am not in a position to do background checks on individuals (on sheer quantities alone). Therefore I was able to form this opinion on physical evidence as observed by the US State Department. That evidence does not necessarily confirm or deny the examples I have used in my previous posts. You the reader, are encouraged to form your own opinion.

My OPINION:

I believe that the CIA knows where Osama bin Laden is. I believe Osama bin Laden was funded by the US government during the Afghan war with the Soviet Union. I believe the funding was created in part by the expanded drug trade and that drugs, money, arms and fighters were funneled through Pakistan. I believe that after the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Afghan war, Osama bin Laden rebelled against the US yet continued to receive funding. I believe once Osama bin Laden created an inhospitable climate for the construction of an oil pipeline through Afghanistan, discontent between the US and bin Laden escalated. I believe that Osama bin Laden was responsible for the 9/11 attacks on the US (I know… it’s a shock to even me). I believe the Bush administration saw this as a multi-opportunistic event, in which to activate plans they had been formulating from the beginning to invade Iraq. I believe that there are a few reasons why the CIA and the Bush administration don’t want to capture Osama bin Laden. For 1, I believe that the Bush administration can continue its operations (at this point, global) easier if the American people are kept believing the situation is still “on the front burner”. The operations are no longer limited to places abroad, but within our own country as well. For 2, I believe that the Bush administration is afraid of what Osama might tell the world about their connection. Yet at the same time I don’t think Osama or his staff would even admit this to his followers. For 3, I had a third, but I can’t remember it. Plus I’m sure you’re tired of reading this. It’s got to bore some of you to tears. But, it shouldn’t!

Ok, I think I completely beat this topic into the ground. There are so many side topics coming out of this one, that I’ll be dead of old age (hopefully) before I’ll be able to include them all.

I’m sure most of you have decided whether or not you buy all this. I’m not asking you to believe everything blindly. I would hope you would research these items individually and come to your own conclusion.

Wait, wait… there’s more!

I lied, I cannot connect the dots for you today. As it turns out, there are more facts that need to be looked at. I had no idea that this was going to get so easy when I started researching this idea of why we didn’t want to actually catch Osama bin Laden, but information just started popping out of the ground. It’s truly amazing.

Pakistan, the middle man.

Ties between Pakistan, CIA, and bin Laden grown at the same rate as the Central Asian drug trade begins. Again, I am just going to give you the facts, it’s up to you to decide if those facts collate. According to a study done by Alfred McCoy, within two years of the CIA operation in Afghanistan, the borderlands between Pakistan and Afghanistan became the world’s top heroin producer, supplying 60 percent of U.S. demand. In 6 years the heroin addicted population in Pakistan went from almost zero to 1.2 million people. This CIA controlled drug trade became known as “The Golden Crescent Drug Triangle”, and in 1995, the former CIA director of the Afghan operation, Charles Cogan, admitted the CIA had “suspended” its war on drugs, to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan.

According to The Washington Post, in late 2005 the CIA shut down the unit that was dedicated to capturing Osama bin Laden.

There’s more information that supports my theory than I can shake a stick at, and I’m sure some of you may even take a look at it. But I really need to wrap this up and move on to other things. So my next post will be be my conclusion.

Connect the dots

Now that you have some idea of just how far we (the United States) will go to NOT apprehend bin Laden, it’s my responsibility to try to link him to resources deep within our government. Even without hard evidence, I’m pretty sure this will be obvious to even the most casual observer.

I’ll try to start at the beginning, but there may be some bouncing around, so please be patient. Let us start with the bin Laden family. We know that they are a wealthy Saudi Arabian family with ties directly to the Saudi Royal Family. We can directly link George Bush Senior to the Royal Family and through business dealings with the bin Laden family. We also are aware that all of them had one thing in common, oil, mixed with a business deal to create an oil pipeline through Afghanistan.

With the Russians controlling Afghanistan, and the cold war in full effect, there was no way to build the oil pipeline. Now I need to be careful on what I say in this instance and try to give you enough details, but without filling in the blanks to closely. Again, without hard evidence, there is now way to say who did what. That being said, Enter Osama into Afghanistan. By 1984 Osama had established al-Khidamat. Through al-Khadamat, he was able to funnel money, guns, and people through Pakistan.

Afghanistan is really the key point here. Through Afghanistan we can link most of bin Laden’s contacts.

We can link bin Laden to the Reagan/Bush administration through the CIA’s heavy involvement in supplying guns, money and technical support (including the construction of fortified caves) to bin Laden’s al-Khidamat. All in hopes of fighting off the “Evil” communists. Or so they said. This was (then vice president) Bush’s pet project.

We can also link bin Laden to Pakistan and General Musharraf. General Musharraf can be linked back to Bush, and the circle continues.

These are the facts as they sit, all by themselves.

For those of you unable to add. I’ll connect the dots for you, IN MY OPINION, so there is little left to your imagination. But I’ll do that tomorrow.
