Bin Laden Alive and Dead

September 20, 2017

On September 23, 2006, the French newspaper L’Est Républicain quoted a report from the French secret service (Direction générale de la sécurité extérieure, DGSE) stating that Osama bin Laden had died in Pakistan on 23 August 2006, after contracting a case of typhoid fever that paralyzed his lower limbs. Saudi security services first heard of bin Laden’s death on 4 September 2006.

The Osama death was reported by the Saudi Arabian secret service to its government, which in turn quickly reported it to the French secret service. It is to be noted, however, that since his death, bin Ladin has released a number of tape recorded interviews that somehow seemed to have strongly supported the Bush administration’s continued terrorization of the American public. These tapes had been made by a CIA-owned firm in Texas.

Any educated Arabic person will tell you that while the language is technically correct, it is badly flawed in that no Arab would use such phrases in his speech. This is not particularly surprising because the CIA is not known for either its intelligence, subtlety or creative ability.

Osama  bin Laden, a Saudi, was employed by the CIA to organize and combat Russian military units in Afghanistan. When that conflict was ended, bin Laden began to attack American interests and was then the subject of CIA displeasure. They did use his faked image to release what they considered timely warnings about pending attacks. The purpose of this was to generate concern in Washington and permit the CIA to get more needed money and influence.

The Saudis, in collaboration with American intelligence units, have been directly responsible for more destruction and deaths that the armies of Genghis Kahn.
