Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh says that the raid which killed Osama Bin Laden in 2011 is “one big lie” and that “not one word” of the Obama administration’s narrative on what happened is true.
In a wide-ranging interview published today by the Guardian, Hersh savages the US media for failing to challenge the White House on a whole host of issues, from NSA spying, to drone attacks, to aggression against Syria.
On the subject of the Navy Seal raid that supposedly resulted in the death of the Al-Qaeda terror leader, Hersh remarked, “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true.”
Hersh added that the Obama administration habitually lies but they continue to do so because the press allows them to get away with it.
“It’s pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama],” Hersh told the Guardian.
The raid that supposedly led to Bin Laden’s death has been shrouded in mystery for over two years. Speculation that the Obama administration may have embellished or outright lied about the true account of what happened has persisted, mainly because the White House has refused to publicly release images of Bin Laden’s body.
Although the White House said the corpse was immediately “buried at sea” in line with Islamic tradition, it quickly emerged that this was not standard practice.
Numerous analysts have claimed that Bin Laden had in fact been dead for years and that the raid on his alleged compound in Pakistan was little more than a stunt.
Other questions also persist, such as why the narrative and timeline of the raid has changed multiple times, why the White House initially claimed that “situation room” photos showed Obama watching the raid live when in fact there was a blackout on the live feed, and why neighbors in the immediate area surrounding the compound said with absolute certainty that they had never seen Bin Laden and that they knew of no evidence whatsoever to suggest he lived there.
True or not? I dunno. I do know that a lot of us who paid attention were aware that Bin Laden was suffering from advanced kidney failure long before he was "killed" in his Abbottabad compound 2 years ago. For him to have survived 9 years in the harsh wilds of Afghanistan and Pakistan without medical attention and with such a well documented illness seems impossible. But obama has the "ins" with Hollywood. He can do anything and make it look real.
Whether the Bin Laden story suggested in the above article is true or not, I don't know. The rest of what is said about all of the lies and media complicity is true. A deaf, dumb and blind kid could figure that out.
Yeah, I went and saw Tommy while I was TDY to a small government training facility in Virginia back in early 1976. Tina Turner was hotter than donut grease back then. She still is. :)
I do recall thinking at the time of the Bin Laden assassination that the story seemed hokey, that things didn't quite fit together as well as they should have.
