BBC News:
History of lies used to go to war

Article highlights:

  • The PR firm coached a purported witness, introduced as a 15-year-old girl called "Nayirah", to tearfully tell US congressmen in October 1990 that Iraqi soldiers had entered a hospital in Kuwait, removed babies from incubators and left them to die on the cold floor. ... [George H. W.] Bush is recorded as having publicly touted this tall tale at least six times as he blew the bugle of war. ... In January 1991, Bush's war resolution narrowly passed the Senate. Six senators cited the incubators story as justification for authorising the conflict, notes MacArthur.

  • Benjamin Ginsberg, author of The American Lie: Government by the People and Other Political Fables... cites deceptive statements by Bush's son, President George W Bush, as he sold a sequel war on Iraq to the US public. ... These included downplaying intelligence doubts that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction, and implying he might even have a nuclear weapon, and asserting he was an ally of al-Qaeda.

  • [Lyndon Baines] Johnson's falsehoods on the Vietnam War included using an August 1964 naval attack that never happened in the Gulf of Tonkin to dramatically escalate the conflict. ... "We are not about to send American boys nine or 10 thousand miles away from home to do what Asian boys ought to be doing for themselves," he told voters two months later in Akron, Ohio. ... After being elected, LBJ quietly sent the first US combat forces to the jungles and rice paddies of the war zone, eventually deploying more than half a million troops.

  • Mexico "has invaded our territory and shed American blood upon the American soil" - James Polk in his 1846 war message to Congress, about an attack he had provoked in what was actually disputed territory

  • "Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars" - Franklin Delano Roosevelt to voters in 1940, even as he flexed his political muscles to confront Nazi Germany.

  • "The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base" - Harry Truman in 1945, but the target was actually a city and most of the 140,000 or so people who died were civilians

  • Dwight Eisenhower approved statements claiming an American U-2 spy plane shot down by the Soviets in 1960 was just a weather research aircraft, later acknowledging this was a lie and his "greatest regret"

  • "We've removed an ally of al-Qaeda and... no terrorist network will gain weapons of destruction from the Iraqi regime because the regime is no more" - George W Bush in 2003

    Movie "The Mauritanian"
    Reveals How Torture
    Created Official 9/11

    Evidence linking Bin Laden was fabricated with torture
    "Thus, the 9/11 Commission provided extensive circumstantial evidence of bin Laden’s role in 9/11, based primarily on what it had been told about confessions by prisoners in Guantanamo. It is doubtful that much of that would hold up in an independent court, considering the ways confessions were elicited."

    Was There an Alternative? Looking Back on 9/11 a Decade Later 9/6/2011

    Revisiting the staged 2011 execution of an alleged terrorist leader

    New information is erupting this week regarding 2011 U.S. military raid and murder of Osama bin Laden by the Navy Seal SIX Team on May 2, 2011. With only a couple weeks away to the 2020 November election, the full picture is still not being told. The media headlines today are generally similar to this one today from CNN: "Fact-checking the dangerous bin Laden conspiracy theory that Trump touted" (October 15, 2020)

    Bin Laden released his last public statement video tape on December 7, 2001, where doctors had said that "the big difference is that he's aged enormously between '97 and October of last year" (CNN). Days later, he died of his health conditions, after denying involvement in 9/11. Osama bin Laden's December 13, 2001 burial in Tora Bora was widely reported in the Middle East. He died from his kidney disease that kept him in need of dialysis.
    Two weeks after his death, Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf confirmed that bin Laden died of kidney failure. FBI counterterrorism chief Dale Watson also confirmed that Osama bin Laden was probably dead. According to Israeli intelligence, he was dead in December 2001, "The Israeli sources said Israel and the United States assess that Bin Laden probably died in the U.S. military campaign in Afghanistan in December."

    Public statements from bin Laden after his death were labeled fake, even by the White House: "The recording was dismissed by the Bush administration yesterday as sick propaganda possibly designed to mask the fact the al-Qa'eda leader was already dead."

    Then, suddenly, it became important to keep the dead body of Osama bin Laden alive.

    Audio and video tapes with public statements of somebody claiming to be bin Laden kept appearing. Anybody who did an analysis easily confirmed tapes after December 13, 2001 were fake.
    In one video, the alleged "confession video", the thin sickly bin Laden suddenly gained 100 pounds and was allegedly confessing in closed captioned wording added by the U.S. Pentagon. "A GERMAN TV show found that the White House's translation of the 'confession' video was not only inaccurate, but even 'manipulative' " and another tape "Bin Laden tape a fake, Swiss lab says" according to Associated Press (11/28/2002). On these new videos, the fake bin Laden was right-handed (the real bin Laden was left-handed). There were translation errors, as if somebody originally wrote these speeches in English and had them translated into Arabic (for example, "50,000 people in the two towers" instead of 5,000). He makes cryptic references to European philosophers like Emmanuel Todd, and praises secular liberals like Noam Chomsky, and talks about watching Michael Moore documentaries. There is no resemblance between these new public statements in videos and audio recording to the real Osama bin Laden of the 1980s and 1990s. Duke Professor Bruce Lawrence from Durham analyzed 20 speeches after bin Laden's death and confirmed that there was a big change in the public statements, and that bin Laden's "voice from the grave" stopped quoting the Koran, which was very unusual, and did not seem like the real bin Laden.

    But the dog-and-pony-show of a beyond-the-grave Osama bin Laden could only end in one way: a staged heroic U.S. military operation killing the evil terrorist and praising the White House before an election. On May 2, 2011, U.S. Navy Seal Team Six killed somebody (allegedly bin Laden) in a compound in Pakistan, unnecessarily, because the compound was part of a Pakistani intelligence (ISI) operation. The White House then confiscated the materials from the compound and they were sent to Hollywood, so the movie version, "Zero Dark Thirty," could spread the fake narrative. Yet, according to official sources talking to respected reporter Seymour M. Hersh, the Obama White House lied about the gunfight between Navy Seals and bin Laden in the compound that led to his death. Bin Laden was "an unarmed elderly civilian" executed as planned. The operation was staged "political theatre designed to burnish Obama’s military credentials."
    To prevent the proper identification of the fake bin Laden body, "the remains, including his head, which had only a few bullet holes in it, were thrown into a body bag and, during the helicopter flight back to Jalalabad, some body parts were tossed out over the Hindu Kush mountains." There was no real authentication or DNA analysis, and the Hollywood scene where CIA agent "Maya" identifies the body, as seen in Zero Dark Thirty, never happened. To explain why there was no body, they claimed that they threw the body over the side of a ship, which is illegal in Islamic law, but they justified it by saying that, according to Islamic law, the body must be buried within 24 hours.

    The movie version, Zero Dark Thirty, reveals more lies than truths. You can see that the whole search and operation for bin Laden was staged by one person, CIA agent "Maya," based on a real person; an agent who was the focus of the 2014 Senate report on the CIA torture program. "The report singles out the female expert as a key apologist for the program, stating that she repeatedly told her superiors and others — including members of Congress — that the “torture” was working and producing useful intelligence, when it was not." (NBC December 18, 2014). This same torture program was used to create the fake intelligence that linked Iraq to WMDs, and linked the September 11, 2001 attacks to bin Laden. She was promoted after 9/11, and assisted in allowing the alleged hijacker patsies to roam freely about the country, according to the article, "she came under harsh criticism after a subordinate on the bin Laden unit refused to share the names of two the 9/11 hijackers — Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi — with the FBI prior to the attacks." The real bin Laden never was involved in the attacks, and the alleged 9/11 hijackers were patsies, working for the U.S., many with addresses listed on the Pensacola Florida military base or Aerospace Medical School at Brooks Air Force Base in San Antonio Texas. (click here for more about the alleged hijackers) The alleged hijackers, like Osama bin Laden, were only scapegoats framed as part of somebody else's plan to deceive the American public.
