Haven’t you wondered at the varied stories of the terrorist’s demise? We had his body and disposed of it at sea. Wait, no; his body was flown back to D.C. for examination. Or, his body wasn’t flown back. The SEAL team had members later die. Was that an odd coincidence or favorable for Obama?
What of that odd picture of Obama supposedly watching the raid with Hillary, Panetta and Biden. Doesn’t he look photoshopped in? What about the new story that he was playing spades with “buddy” Reggie Love? Is that something a president would do at such a critical moment?
The whole story is ahot mess and no one has dared question any of it in the mainstream media.
Now Seymour Hersh, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, has raised some questions. He calls the Bin Laden narrative “one big lie” and “not one word” of it true. Ya think?
Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars calls attention to 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.
During the rest of the Guardian interview, which is well worth reading in its entirety, Hersh lambastes the corporate press and particularly the New York Times, which he says spends “so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would.”
Hersh’s solution is to shut down news networks like NBC and ABC and fire 90% of mainstream editors, replacing them with real journalists who are outsiders and not afraid to speak truth to power.
“The republic’s in trouble, we lie about everything, lying has become the staple,” concluded Hersh.
No honest person could argue with that.
