Paul Craig Roberts: Obama Faked Bin Laden Death

Paul Craig Roberts was an assistant treasury secretary in the early days of the Reagan administration and later an editor of the Wall Street Journal. Since then he’s gone completely off the deep end, leaving behind mainstream conservatism for the far-right fever swamps. Last week he declared that Osama Bin Laden’s death was faked because he died a decade ago.

RT, one of my favorite news sources, has fallen for a fake story put out by the Pentagon to support the fantasy story that a SEAL team killed Osama bin Laden, who died a second time in Abbottabad, Pakistan, a decade after his first death from illness and disease.

This fake story together with the fake movie and the fake book by an alleged SEAL team member is the way the fake story of bin Laden’s murder is perpetrated. Bin Laden’s alleged demise at the hands of a SEAL team was a propaganda orchestration, the purpose of which was to give Obama a hero’s laurels and deep six Democratic talk of challenging his nomination for a second term.

Osama bin Laden died in December 2001 of renal failure and other health problems, having denied in his last recorded video any responsibility for 9/11, instead directing Americans to look inside their own government. The FBI itself has stated that there is no evidence that Osama bin Laden is responsible for 9/11. Bin Laden’s obituary appeared in numerous foreign and Arabic press, and also on Fox News. No one can survive renal failure for a decade, and no dialysis machine was found in the alleged Abbottabad compound of bin Laden, who allegedly was murdered by SEALs a decade after his obituary notices.

Additionally, no one among the crew of the ship from which the White House reported bin Laden was buried at sea saw any such burial, and the sailors sent messages home to that effect. Somehow a burial was held onboard a ship on which there are constant watches and crew on alert at all hours, and no one witnessed it.

I’m not saying it was aliens…but it was aliens. This is also the guy who once said:

In their hatred of ‘the rich,’ the left-wing overlooks that in the 20th century the rich were the class most persecuted by government. The class genocide of the 20th century is the greatest genocide in history.

Nothing compared to the death of brain cells inside this guy’s head.

    Just to show that the far left and the far right are both nuts, Roberts also writes columns for Counterpunch, a far left wing blog, about as reliable as the Whacknutdaily.

    Typical Left and your Truthers!

     

    The class genocide of the 20th century is the greatest genocide in history.

    Yup. The Forbes 500 is down to 10 now, and most of those you can only see in zoos. They’re nice zoos, don’t get me wrong, with gold bars, servants, spacious grounds and private jets, but imagine being trapped in a cage beside Paris Hilton! The agony!

    Hey, if you can’t believe this guy rattling off [cough] facts that he gives no sources for and assumes Bin Laden wouldn’t have any reason to plant false obituaries, who can you trust?

  • Alverant

    @colnago the difference between the far left nuts and the far right nuts is that the far right nuts are more likely to commit acts of terrorism and more likely to be excused or even defended if they’re the “right” kind of right wing nut.

  • bmiller

    There is a bigger and more important difference, Alverant: Far Right Nuts are elected to Congress and serve on important committees. They also tend to be billionairs who are able to funnel tons of cash to other nuts.

    disappointing. I have actually liked SOME of what Roberts has written. His commentary on the financialization of the economy and the worthlessness of hucksters like The Dog Torturer/Mr. Bain Capital has actually been interesting.

    what’s even more incredible than the US Gubamint claiming they killed Osama Bin Laden 10 years after his actual death.. was Osama Bin Laden releasing a video, in which he made references to the contemporaneous 2004 elections!

    Claiming you shot a dead guy 10 years after he died is one thing.. but it’s clear that no one but the NWO could get Osama to make a video 3 years after he was dead! Only the Illuminati could pull that one off. Or the Bilderbergs.. or the Hans Christian Andersons.. they’re the worst!

    Funny to see this come up here, as I was looking at the talk pages for bin Laden’s Wikipedia entry. They’re full of people who believe in one way or the official story is wrong, and want the article to reflect that.

  • caseloweraz

    Damn convenient: Bin Laden dies after recording a video that denies his involvement in 9/11 (says Roberts). I suppose Roberts can produce a copy of this video? No, I didn’t think so.

    And, of course, everyone from the president on down who was involved in the recent mission to capture or kill bin Laden is lying (says Roberts). Classic conspiracy theorist.

    Well of course the official story is wrong. It says the bullet entered bin Laden’s body at an angle of 37°. The angle was actually 39.5°. You see how your government lies to you?

    I want to see the long form death certificate.

  • Ray, rude-ass yankee (Whimsy, I has it)

    I think calling members of SEAL team 6 liars is a BAD idea. But he shouldn’t let that stop him from bringing the “truth” to everyone.

  • Nemo

    “… Democratic talk of challenging his nomination for a second term.”

    I found this the most fantastical element of his story.

    Not to say that no one considered challenging him — there are always challengers, and there always should be. But to imply that this idea was taken seriously by a significant percentage of Democrats? This is the first I’ve even heard it suggested.

  • jws1

    Colnago @1: I guess that makes him “fair and balanced.”

  • jeffreykramer

    To prove that Obama did not get Bin Laden, I will demonstrate, first, that the supposed raid never took place; second, that Bin Laden survived the raid; and finally, that Bin Laden was already dead when the raid took place.

  • eric

    Wow I knew the hatred was irrationally deep. But I honestly never thought I’d hear a right-wing pundit impugn the Navy SEALs and defend Osama Bin Ladin just to make Obama look manipulative.

  • Moon Jaguar

    Obama will be taking credit for the deaths of Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo any day now.

    We very obviously did not complete the job. Can we try again?
