Follow The President's Announcement To The Nation That Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

Tyler Durden's picture


Update: It is now confirmed that Osama Bin Laden was killed in an air strike last week, and the US has the body. Expect the media to be drowned with stories of imminent terrorist "retaliation" which will push a flight to USD "safety" and purportedly drop commodities.

Lots of wild rumors about Obama's imminent late Sunday announcement to the nation, chief among which is that Bin Laden has been killed. The address can be followed live here.

Rumor that Ben S. Bernanke & The Federal Reserve have been attempting to 'blow up' the US Dollar and are to be targeted as enemy combatants.

10 years of the most powerful military actions in the world . . . we'll celebrate we got "this one guy". And all the other bad guys no prob.  Osama Bin Laden.  No legacy . . . CNN insane "We'll all remember exactly where we were when we heard this news . . . ."  No WE WON'T.  Where we were on 9/11, yes.  Tonight.  Forget it!

Obama stated:

"Look, the U.S. economy is in the shitter, record numbers of Americans are on social benefit programs like SNAP, the number of foreclosures is set to surpass 2 million in 2011 and maybe more than that in 2012, the real unemployment rate is close to 20%, and the real inflation rate is close to 8% annually, with $5 a gallon gas in sight...I get it...I do...I feel your pain. But Osama Bin Laden was killed while I was the sitting President. So forget about your problems and rally around Rome burning."

Yes, because the guy was so great that he had a super spy henchman lair in the Tora Bora mountains that no one has yet to find, and they turned out to be made up.


The guy was so scary that he had to use body doubles in his videos until he could only release audio tapes.


Some people are so scared of the boogeyman that they have lost all ability to rational though. You would be one of those people.

Ok, so:

1. Hooray.  Does this mean I don't have to choose between sexual molestation and irradiation anymore in order to board an airplane?

1a. Has the War of Terror been won?  Or has only Chapter 1 come to a close?  Stay tuned to a MSM outlet near you!

2. This is the pre-cursor of something else, something that they need to pull off while the dupes are distracted.

2a. Perhaps this is simply a gracious gift of "closure" bequeathed unto the useless eaters as a small token of thanks for all their years of production and labor donated to the elites?  To give them that last feel good moment of the year before the stun blow and their heads lopped off to be sent off for butchering...

2b. Or perhaps it's a distraction, a sleight of hand to throw off your attention while the real game gets played over here.

2c. Or both.

3. It is a tale, consumed by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

The easiest call ever was that Obama, a Zbig and Kissenger protege, would be the one to bag Osama.  Tim Osman (Osama's CIA code name, which is code for 'The Ottoman') was put into play by Zbig under Carter when the Mujahideen was established as a proxy war force to at first battle the Russians, and then to use as an antagonist.  Osman was the left hand of his father, who owns the Carlyle Group along with the Bushes and Sarkozys.  Osman has been dead for years.  He was hospitalized and was barely alive the months before the September 11th bombing.  It was Obama's trump card, and Zbig had this one stashed for right when the dollar was about to fail, which it is.  Now when the dollar fails, which it will in a matter of weeks if not days, the US Empire, or what is left of it, will say to the world, 'But you all need us!  Look at the good we do!  Who will apprehend the criminals if not us?'

So yes, Obama is going to get a big smack on the lips from Nobel, the long forgotten Rotheschilde liasion.

I will waste no time trying to prove or disprove.  Obviously, real or not, alive or long-dead, OBL was no longer useful.  The story was no longer serving any real purpose.  So, the only question is: now what?  To what use will this piece of news be put?  Obama simply getting credit for it would be just a waste, even with the obvious meaninglessness of the report.  

Fox news last night had some right wing beyotch crowing about how this meant that all the ME fence-sitters were going to join the U.S. side now.  OMFG.  Ten years later?

Sparklies of death: Wailing about any of these issues, or the dozens of other issues that cross the pages at Drudge, WND, InfoWars, et al, is a waste of valuable time and energy.  Beware the Sparklies.  One day you'll want the hours that you devoted to Sparklies back.  They'll get you killed.

I'll be cutting back on my time here.  Peace.

As a kid I lived near the East German border. We always heard those clicks, when we did a telephone conversation. Sometimes we greeted our East German spies.

I can remember very well, when I served in the army, we used to be near the border. One day, we got a call from the other side and they congratulated one of our men - in fact, it was his birthday. That was scary - and we had to reconfigure our whole communication system. Those bastards - you know, some of them are now working within our secret service. Nothing has changed - Hitler's men were also used by all secret services, when WWII ended.

Just want to point out a sort of thumb in the wind observation.  Twenty-four hours ago the news was broken on the Washington Post website, not a fringy blog, that Ghadafi's grandchildren were killed by by an airstrike (on a civilian neighborhood)  which was meant to assasinate him.  The comments were running by my estimate 9 to 1 heatedly against the teleprompter.  It was looking bad, real bad.  So, ace in the hole.  Full on.

This "News" has enlivened an otherwise dull bank holiday. A figment of imagination spawned from a Saudi-CIA asset killed by the same special forces who staged the daring televised "rescue" of Jessica Lynch after Iraqi doctors and a lawyer risked their lives to contact the US forces to come pick her up from the hospital in Nasriyah. I don't know how it looks over there, but to people outside the 'States, the news that comes out of the military industrial complex is highly entertaining. Better than science fiction.

Yup.  SEC had a big office there.  Also IRS, CIA, and DOD.  From Wikipedia:

7 World Trade Center housed SEC files relating to numerous Wall Street investigations, as well as other federal investigative files. All the files for approximately 3,000 to 4,000 SEC cases were destroyed. While some were backed up in other places, others were not, especially those classified as confidential.[50] Files relating Citigroup to the WorldCom scandal were lost.[51] The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission estimates over 10,000 cases will be affected.[52] The Secret Service had its largest field office, with more than 200 employees, in WTC 7 and lost investigative files. Says one agent: “All the evidence that we stored at 7 World Trade, in all our cases, went down with the building.”[53]

The collapse of 7 World Trade Center is remarkable because it was the first known instance of a tall building collapsing primarily as a result of uncontrolled fires.[32]

Here is a long and interesting article stating that in addition to giving excuse for war, "vaporizing" the gold in the Comex vault, stopping a few thousand SEC investigations, wiping out the North Tower office of the FBI unit investigating massive gold fraud, and trampling the Consitution, 9/11 was also about covertly monetizing $240B of debts related to economic warfare on the Soviet Union (organized in part by Soros, Mossad, and the Rothschilds).  Also, the part of the Pentagon that was hit was empty except for the Office of Naval Intelligence, which was investigating security transactions of the firms whose offices were targeted by the WTC attacks.  WTC 6 had the El Dorado Task Force, responsible for coordinating all money- laundering investigations in the US, with 55 different agencies involved.  The survivors were redirected to investigate terrorist financing.

Just read the first few pages of this to get an idea of the organizational feats they pulled off.  No group of mere human conspirators could pull of something this byzantine without some fuckup that can't be "fixed".  Read the article and see how the elites and their evil deeds are all interconnected, like a giant brain.  A vast Grand Unified Conspiracy Theory.  This is all the work of the hive mind of the elites, which they call Lucifer!

Bush Intentionally Let Osama bin Laden Escape, Asserts Congressman Hinchey

The [Senate Foreign Relations] report goes on to say, "Fewer than 100 American commandoes were on the scene with their Afghan allies and calls for reinforcements (they called for reinforcements) to launch an assault were rejected. Requests were also turned down, for U.S. troops to block the mountain paths leading to sanctuary a few miles away in Pakistan. The vast array of American military power, from sniper teams through the most mobile divisions of the Marine Core and the Army -- all of that was kept on the sidelines."

All of that was kept on the sidelines intentionally, in order to make sure that [Osama] bin Laden was not captured. As I said, if he had been captured it would have been very difficult and probably impossible for any justification of an invasion of Iraq.

Plus he might have spilled the beans on his CIA handlers.  Now that he's dead, I wonder if a "killswitch video" will emerge in which he airs some of our dirty laundry- including our own complicity in 9/11, perhaps?

Unless Bernanke's death came at the hands of angry tax payers I don't see anything changing.  Don't give this guy that much credit.  He is just a puppet for TPTB who parade this "smart guy" who knows everything about the great depression and try to sell us on the idea that he will save us from one.  I agree with Tyler that the selloff is likely due to the perceived safety in case of retaliation but in the end this is only a blip in the death of the confetti notes Ben pushes and Americans use to trade.

Posted this on another thread.  Fits w/ the false flag theme.

Now the real bold are TPTB going to be with their next move???

9/11 destroyed all the Enron evidence so the US ponzi could advance.

Will they use May 4th (5+4=9, 2011 staying w/ the 9/11 theme) to blow up the Comex and "lose" all of that evidence??

Then, they can blame the "terrorists" for retaliating over bin Laden's death, and at the same time change the rules on silver ownership/taxes etc. in the name of "National Security"

Level now 3300 times limit at No. 2 reactor intake

The operator of the troubled Fukushima nuclear power plant says it has detected higher levels of radioactive materials in seawater samples from near the water intake at one of the reactors.

Tokyo Electric Power Company says it detected 130 becquerels of radioactive iodine-131 per cubic centimeter in samples collected near the water intake for the Number 2 reactor on Saturday. The figure is 3,300 times the national limit and 30 percent higher than the level detected on Friday.

In some respects I am surprised that to hear that Emmanuel Goldstein is officially dead. Who will the party replace him with?

Seriously! It strikes me as both pathetic and disturbing that the 'leader' of this country claims the death of another single human being to be of such significance. I guess death is good if you are a psycho/sociopath.

I share the opinion expressed elsewhere that this 'happy' news will be used to both justify and explain a new wave of unfortunate 'terrorist' events and the resulting repression that we will all endure.

Why would it matter, or be a surprise, that an extremely large family worth billions holds a stake in an investment firm that, up until 2008, had a pretty good track record? Lots of Saudis and lots of other Arabs hold stakes or investments in firms and the major hedge funds. Waleed bin Talal holds his famous stake in Citibank.  So what?  I’m not sure why that makes anyone guilty of anything, except in that world that starts in a bauxite mine and ends at a natty haberdashery.

The Great Emperor of Money said:  "I call your attention first to the committee's longer-run projections, which represent participants' assessments of the rates to which economic growth, unemployment, and inflation will converge over time, under appropriate monetary policy, and assuming no further shocks to the economy."

No further shocks...  Like a retaliatory terrorist attack?

The Chairman said that "no further shocks" almost like he expected there to be further shocks.  Then we all "rally around the flag".  At least, that may be "the plan," if you're into conspiracy theories.

What better way to hide the real reasons for our economic woes, though?  What better way to divert?  What better way to hide the truth?  Americans refused to go into Europe's War - until Pearl.

How does it take the most powerful nation the world has ever known 10 years to kill the mastermind of the worst attack since Pearl Harbor?  We caught Saddam within a year...

We've been in Afghanistan longer than WWII.

Gerald Celente said if they bombed  me, I'd bomb them back.  Let's hope they don't find a way to hit us again.  If they do, it's all over.  Celente calls what's happening in the Middle East as the beginning of the 1st Great War of the 21st Century.  Getting us to "rally around the flag" wouldn't be bad for those who want war.

You take everything hook, line and sinker or do you have to practice?

So everything the moonbat websites make up is gospel? The hook, line and sinker looks like it caught you, too.  In fact, reading the comments here, it looks like the moonbats had a full net out.

Tim Osman?  I prefer Pee Wee Herman.  That's ObL's real code name.  And my source is at least as good as the fantasy you believe.  WHo you gonna believe?

There are times---and this is one of them---when ZH definitely looks like it jumped the shark.   Please, if you are so certain ObL and al Qaeda are a CIA or Rothschild construct, take a fucking trip to Waziristan and wear a t-shirt that says "al-CIAda".  I've made this offer before.  Go there, wear that, and if you can prove your head is still attached to your shoulders when you return, I'll pay for the trip.  Seriously, I get tired of some of the goddamn childish naive bullshit on this site by people with trav7777's favorite Downing Effect, albeit for geopolitical sophistication. 

Now if one wants to argue that US policy is responsible for the development of al Qaeda, Jama'ah al Islamiya, Lashkar e Taiba and Abu Sayyaf, that is an opinion and can be argued for or against reasonably.  On the other hand, the internet-bred moonbat fantasy that these groups are created by the USG is just childish nonsense.  Somehow, lunatics who sit half naked in their basements creating fantasy, then posting it on a website, gain instant credibility.  Bizarre.  Of course I'll never convince a one of you, as it is your perogative to stay woefully naive and painfully paranoid.

For those of you who really really believe your moonbat websites, take me up on my offer and enjoy Waziristan.  We'll catch your travel movies on the internet, if you know what I mean.

Do NOT follow this link or you will be banned from the site!
