I was on the Fox News website looking for video or picture for another post I wanted to put up and I came across this: Bin Laden Calls Obama 'Powerless'. I don't want to spread any 9/11 truth propaganda on this site...but correct me if I'm wrong: The FBI's 10 Most Wanted List doesn't indict him for the 9/11 attacks. So why would they say that he is responsible? Why would Bin Laden even say anything at all?
Well it is the weekend after the 8th anniversary of the attacks and it wouldn't be America if we didn't have a "September Surprise" to remind us why we put up with hundreds of troops dying every month. So why not have an address from the man "who is responsible" himself? There are a few problems with this alleged "tape" that was sent... He might actually be right!!!
Hold on before you get the axe and pitch forks and start your angry mob on our site...think about it for a second. If you read what was said that he said, he makes very good and precise points. From a "semi"-journalistic standpoint, he presents his case clearly and actually objectively (if you know anything about Bin Laden). So why would this not be something that American people look at as a sign that this may not be the right thing to do? DUHH Because it's Usama Bin Laden that's why!!! He is the boogie man in the closet that you tell your kids about. He's the sworn enemy of our nation that our kids get indoctrinated to believe. He is the sum of all fears here in the United States of America and he can not possibly make clear and concise points about our wars.
The expected outcome of this tape is to make you remember why we allow our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends and neighbors to die everyday. This tape is to make you remember, (after your weekend of remembering) who our "enemy" is and what our "goal" is. This tape is supposed to stir up resentment that you started to lose. This tape is supposed to make even more of our kids boot up and join in on the fight. This tape is supposed to "promote the previous policies of fear to market the interest of big companies." ...Oops did I put that quote in there!!
Look...I am not pro-terrorist, but the guy makes points that it doesn't take Usama Bin Laden to make. These are the same things that are being said by normal people on a daily basis. Now if you do say these things...your just like Bin Laden.
Well played hand mainstream media...well played!
Open Your Eyes...That's What They're For!!

"The delay in your knowing those causes has cost you a lot without any result whatsoever..."
Great Quote!! That is something that I have stressed for most of my life and applied it to many situations. You can't fix anything if you do not know what has caused its "malfunction". After 9/11/2001, Americans stupidly acted emotionally and was quick to engage in one of histories most significant games of "follow the leader". That leader was G.W. Bush, of course.
So emotions caused common citizens as well as "the elite", officials within the government, to go along with anything suggested by this man and his staff. For years, we were yes-men and-women. Not once did any one of us ask "Why did they do this?". We jumped into war and later asked, "Why are we here(Iraq & Afghanistan)?" The answer was always because they had attacked us, and we were getting revenge.
My questions were: Who attacked us? Why did they attack us? What Should We Do?
Haha. At least one of these questions, I believe, I've found an answer to. This entire situations just shows the ignorance of the American public. Just this week, I took time out of my day to explain to someone considerably older than me (I'm a little over a quarter century old.) that Al Qaeda & the Taliban are two completely separate entities. The only thing that tie the two together is that the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan after the Soviets failed to properly conquor the area before I was even born--I'm not saying that is when the Taliban seized control; just when the invasion happened--and Al-Qaeda was formed by the freedom fighters who were funded and trained by the U.S. to ensure Afghanistan wasn't taken by the Soviets.
In that simplicity, there lies entirely different perplexing complexities that we will not get on this post. But, Osama Bin Laden is no stupid or ignorant man. He KNOWS why he or Al Qaeda is fighting. And, the fact that he sees Obama cannot do much to change the course of the war in Afghanistan proves that he thinks on a level much higher than the average, or even, above-average American. Yes, Defense Secretary Robert Gates was with the previous adminstration and is a direct cause to why we are in the position we are today. He is able to steer the war in whatever direction he wants, just as was done with Bush.
And, oh how did i love "...promote the previous policies of fear to market the interest of big companies." The role of capitalism has been obsured by the mention of "keywords" like democracy and freedom. We want them to have a democracy, so that the direction of their country can change and longstanding traditions fall. Then, American companies can have the freedom to go in and make BIG MONEY. Oh did I say anything about oil? No? Well, we already know this. But, you must also realize that selling more cars to Middle Easterners is need to feed American economy. More McDonald's restaurants, more Wal-Marts, more Chase banks. What we really want to do change the way they dress and what they eat; their devotion to their religion. We want to remove the hijab, the burqah, the niqab, the abaya, the jilbab, the serwal. Maybe we want to sell the women expensive make-up, skin and hair care products. Maybe we want to sell the Muslim man a Old Navy galabeya and the women Gap burqahs. The list is never-ending: Hanes jilbab, Levi serwal, Sean Jean Haj belts, etc...
Ok, I'll accept it; Usama bin Laden is my enemy, because he'll kill innocent Americans at all costs. But starting wars against Islamic people for the reasons of democracy & freedom is a ticket that I ain't buying. Wake Up And Smell The B.S.
