Golly Zawahiri really in charge since 2002 (or IMHO way way before that)


New Bin Laden Tapes Appear

Fake Like Earlier Ones

By Stephen Lendman


On May 2, AP writer Matt Apuzzo headlined, "US Official: New bin Laden tape, recorded shortly before death, expected to surface soon," saying:

"US intelligence officials believe (he) made a propaganda recording shortly before his death and expect that tape to surface soon....A new recording (would) provide a final word from beyond the grave...."

On May 7, New York Times writer Elisabeth Bumiller headlined, "Videos From Bin Laden's Hide-Out Released," saying:

On May 7, the administration "released five videos recovered from" his alleged hideout, showing him "threatening the United States, condemning capitalism and at some points flubbing his lines and missing a cue."

Videos were released "without sound (allegedly) to avoid disseminating terrorist messages....The intelligence official who briefed reporters....took pains to point out that bin Laden....had dyed his white beard black," suggesting vanity or a desire to look younger.

Unmentioned were earlier tapes, including a posthumous December 27, 2001 video showing his beard clearly gray and another in 2004 the same, unlike a 2007 one showing it black. Forensic evidence proved the latter two crude audio and video fakes. More on them below.

Moreover, it's unclear whether Islamic law or teachings prohibit dying hair black. An Islam Question & Answer site says:

"Dyeing hair with pure black dye is haram (punishable) because the Prophet....said: "Avoid black," as well as "the threat of punishment reported with regard to this matter. This ruling applies to both men and women."

However, if black dye "is mixed with another color, so that it is no longer black, there is nothing wrong with it."

A more detailed statement can be accessed through the following link:

http://www.islam-qa.com/en/ref/476 <<<<<<see this link

True or false, other observers believe bin Laden never dyed his hair or beard, a notion in their minds as absurd.

New and Older Videos

The most reported newly released tape shows him wrapped in a blanket in a dilapidated looking room, watching himself on what appears to be a small old TV placed on a broken desk.

Yet he allegedly was housed in a million dollar compound, unlikely to be poorly heated and furnished, as well as shabby-looking, requiring him to sit on the floor with a blanket for warmth. At the least, the image in his alleged surroundings is incongruous, suggesting a recording made elsewhere, not at a luxury Abbottabad, Pakistan estate.

Moreover, the it shows his beard white, not black in other newly released videos, another inconsistency. In fact, he looks much younger than in 2001, suggesting images from the 1990s. Nonetheless, Bumiller cited an intelligence official saying bin Laden "was intensely interested in the image he presented to his supporters," without saying why beard color mattered.

What does matter is a visibly older looking man in 2001, not the more youthful bin Laden in four of the five newly released videos.

Apparently, Obama officials still can't get their story straight, acting much like Max Sennett's "Keystone Kops" and characters in the film and book by the same name titled, "The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight."

An earlier article discussed the staged bin Laden killing hokum, accessed through the following link:

http://sjlendman.blogspot.com/2011/05/staged-bin-laden-killing-hokum.html <<<<<<<< see this link

It addressed a scenario sounding more like bad fiction than allegedly eliminating "Enemy Number One" with no photos, videos or body of a dead bin Laden, as well as no independent proof and shifting stories. They're still not right, putting a lie to the entire account about a man who died earlier in mid-December 2001 of natural causes.

A decade ago, bin Ladin was very ill from kidney failure, diabetes, and by some accounts hepatitis C affecting his liver, requiring hospitalization in Pakistan and Dubai. Moreover, objective and testimonial evidence corroborated his mid-December 2001 death. An earlier article explained, accessed through the following link:

http://sjlendman.blogspot.com/2011/05/lies-damn-lies-and-bin-ladens-death.html <<<<<<<< see this link

It also discussed past strategically released videos. Two examples are noteworthy - on September 7, 2007 and October 29, 2004. Digital image forensics expert Neal Krawetz analyzed both films, concluding they were crude fakes full of low quality visual and audio splices.

Moreover, bin Laden's beard was gray in the earlier video, black in the later one, and he was dressed in the same white hat, shirt and yellow sweater. In addition, the background, lighting, desk and camera angle were identical. Krawetz said "if you overlay the 2007 and 2004 videos, bin Laden's face is the same (unaged)." Only his beard color changed.

Notably also, bin Laden's December 2001 "confession" video admitting responsibility for 9/11 was fake. In February 2006, Duke University bin Laden expert Professor Bruce Lawrence exposed it, calling it a bad hoax.

Citing US intelligence informants, he said everyone knows it's fabricated. He also compared an overweight bin Laden impostor to authentic images showing him much thinner. In fact, the difference between the real and fake bin Laden is obvious, but was falsely used for years as his admission for an inside job crime.

Earlier, post-9/11, in three Al Jazeera interviews, he claimed no knowledge or responsibility for the event.

However, on May 3, 2011, Al Jazeera misreported him admitting "responsibility for planning the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington," an irresponsible lie with no corroborating evidence and their own 2001 interviews.

In addition, a May 25, 2010 Jeff Stein Washington Post article headlined, "CIA unit's wacky idea: Depict Saddam as gay" said:

It considered making fake videos, and:

"(t)he agency actually (made one) purporting to show Osama bin Laden and his cronies sitting around a campfire swigging bottles of liquor and savoring their conquests with boys, one of the former CIA officers recalled, chuckling at the memory. The actors were drawn from 'some of us darker-skinned employees,' " he said.

The Pentagon took over the project, saying "(t)hey had assets in psy-war down at Ft. Bragg at the army's special warfare center."

Alleged DNA Evidence Confirming Bin Laden's Identity

On May 7, Michael Ruppert's article headlined, "Osama and the Ghosts of September 11: 'Proof that Obama is Lying,' " saying:

A noted molecular biologist and DNA expert told him the following on condition of anonymity:

He "built a lucrative career in human genetics. (He ran) one of the world's largest and most productive DNA genotyping facilities, (and is now) helping to build the global market for clinical whole human genome sequencing for the world's largest human genome sequencing facility."

He also worked with the best in his and other fields, saying:

"I know DNA. And, one thing I know about DNA is that you cannot, repeat CANNOT: take a tissue sample from a shot-in-the noggin-dead-guy in a north central Pakistan special forces op, extract the DNA, prepare the DNA for assay, test the DNA, curate the raw DNA sequence data, assemble the reads or QC the genotype, compare the tested DNA to a reference, and make a positive identity determination....all in 12 hours - let alone transport the tissue samples all the places they'd need to have gone in order to get this done."

"Any way you slice it, the real work would require days," and no nearby aircraft carrier or other ship is outfitted with a profession lab and experts on board to do it.

He concluded saying they may or may not have gotten bin Laden, but there's no DNA proof confirming it before they allegedly dumped him at sea. In other words, they lied, one of many beginning with Obama's May day announcement.

A Final Comment

This and previous articles highlight a shameless Washington effort to compound one lie with others, endorsed by major media reports and pundits going along with what they should expose and denounce.

Instead, ad nauseam accounts continue, contributing to war on terror fear mongering that's changed America dramatically post-9/11 disturbingly. It suggests worse yet to come, including perhaps more war besides others now raging, while popular needs go begging.

Despite poll data showing opposition, they continue because people focus more on bread and circuses than activism, the only way to achieve constructive change. It's high time opinions became anger enough to significantly make a difference. It better because the alternative is too dire to imagine.

THESE Seether lyrics dedicated to all 'livers" who thought OSAMA was alive in 2002. Here is to you,you ......."LIVERS".

"Fake It"

Who's to know if your soul will fade at all

The one you sold to fool the world

You lost your self-esteem along the way



Good god you're coming up with reasons

Good god you're dragging it out

Good god it's the changing of the seasons

I feel so raped

So follow me down

And just fake it if you're out of direction

Fake it if you don't belong here

Fake it if you feel like affection

Woah you're such a xxxxing hypocrite

And you should know that the lies won't hide your flaws

No sense in hiding all of yours

You gave up on your dreams along the way





I can fake with the best of anyone

I can fake with the best of em all

I can fake with the best of anyone

I can fake it all

Who's to know if your soul will fade at all

The one you sold to fool the world

You lost your self-esteem along the way



Fake it if you're out of direction

Fake it if you don't belong here

Fake it if you feel like infection

Woah you're such a xxxxing hypocrite

Al-CIAda Sock Puppet Zawahiri Claims Iran Behind 9/11 Conspiracy Theories

Paul Joseph Watson

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

Al-CIAda sock puppet Ayman al-Zawahiri was quoted in an audiotape released today accusing Iran of behind behind 9/11 conspiracy theories, in another crude public relations stunt designed to generate hostile opinion towards the 9/11 Truth Movement.

The tape had been promised three weeks ago by monitoring group IntelCenter, who have been caught in the past putting out fake and misleading "Al-Qaeda" material via the alleged media arm of the terrorist organization As-Sahab, and was finally released today.

The set-up revolved around Al-Zawahiris responding to questions submitted by the public via the Internet.

One of the questioners asked about the theory that has circulated in the Middle East and elsewhere that Israel was behind the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon," reports the Associated Press.

Al-Zawahiri accused Hezbollahs Al-Manar television of starting the rumor.

"The purpose of this lie is clear (to suggest) that there are no heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no else did in history. Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it," he said.

As anyone with even a superficial knowledge of the 9/11 truth movement can attest to, the sock puppet Zawahiris claim that Iran were the first to question the official 9/11 story is completely ludicrous.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejads recent bumbling comments about 9/11, the date of which he cannot even accurately remember, were music to the ears of Neo-Cons who seized upon the statements as fodder to debunk the 9/11 Truth Movement.

Zawahiris single sentence retort, and the fact that it has been used to generate headlines that link alternative theories about 9/11 with those evil Iranians in a clear smear effort, is highly suspicious considering the history of these "Al-Qaeda tapes" and Zawahiris own background.

Is this Neo-Con friendly Al-Zawahiri a different person to the real Al-Zawahiri who was reported to have been captured in Tehran in February 2002?

Is this a different Al-Zawahiri to the one reportedly captured near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in September 2004?

Or is this the same Al-Zawahiri who, as the head of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, fought for the CIA in Bosnia?

Is this the same Al-Zawahiri who, according to January 2000 U.S. Congressional testimony, was granted U.S. residence by the Immigration and Naturalization Service something almost impossible for many legitimate immigrants to obtain?

Is this the same Al-Zawahiri whose brother Zaiman is running terrorist camps under NATO protection in the U.S. zone in Kosovo?

Previous tapes which featured Ayman al-Zawahiri were found to be cobbled together from old footage but that doesnt bother a lapdog media well versed in manufacturing consent and never offering retractions when said tapes turn out to be questionable frauds.

A 2006 Ayman al-Zawahiri tape was studied by a computer expert, who discovered that the As-Sahab logo (the alleged media arm of Al-Qaeda) and the IntelCenter logo (a U.S. based private intelligence organization that "monitors terrorist activity") were both added to the video at the same time meaning the Pentagon-affiliated group releasing the tapes were slapping on the Al-Qaeda brand right before they released them to the media. The expert suspiciously reversed his stance a day later despite producing detailed technical analysis to justify his claim.

Any credibility that these so-called "Al-Qaeda tapes" had was devastated after our investigation revealed that the people putting them out had connections into the highest ranks of the military-industrial complex.

In our exposé, we unveiled the ties between IntelCenter, a group that regularly obtains Al-Qaeda tapes and the Pentagon. IntelCenter is an offshoot of IDEFENSE, which was staffed by a senior military psy-op intelligence officer, Jim Melnick, who has worked directly for Donald Rumsfeld.

IntelCenter were behind the October 2006 release of the "laughing hijackers" tape that showed Mohammad Atta and Ziad Jarrah allegedly attending a 2000 Al-Qaeda meeting and reading their last will and testament.

Segments of the video that were interspersed with footage of the "laughing hijackers," Jarrah and Atta, showing Bin Laden giving a speech to an audience in Afghanistan on January 8 2000, were culled from what terror experts described as surveillance footage taken by a "security agency."

News reports at the time contained the admission that the U.S. government had been in possession of the footage since 2002, while others said it was found when the United States invaded Afghanistan in 2001, and yet it was still bizarrely reported that the tape, bearing all the hallmarks of having been filmed and edited by undercover US intelligence and having admittedly been in US possession for five years, was released over the weekend of September 31/October 1 by "Al-Qaeda".

The video also contained segments that were first broadcast in a British documentary called The Road to Guantanamo, which was originally aired in March 2006. The context of the corresponding scene in the dramatized documentary featured U.S. interrogators attempting to coerce Gitmo detainees into confessing Al-Qaeda membership by showing them fake videos where their likeness had been computer generated to appear as if they were in attendance during Bin Ladens January 8 2000 speech.

IntelCenter were also behind the release of the July 2007 "new" Bin Laden tape, which in actual fact was old footage filmed in 2001 and had been released, including by IntelCenter itself, on no less than two previous occasions spanning back five years.

Al-Zawahiri has a history of popping up at the most politically expedient times, most notably when he appeared right before State of the Union speeches two years running, to attack Bushs policy in Iraq and allow him to use Al-Zawahiris words as a rallying call to prolong the occupation, following in the footsteps of Dick Cheney and former Press Secretary Tony Snow, who had compared troop surge skeptics to Al-Qaeda sympathizers.

His latest comments linking the questioning of the official 9/11 story with Americas supposed enemy, Iran, are transparently part of a crude ploy to allow the media to embark on a fresh round of demonizing legitimate 9/11 truth activists


The alleged link between CIA and Al Queda man al-Zawahiri is discussed in this website.


Could be that Zawihiri is on the CIA's payroll. He could be an informant. How else would we so consistently know where not to look for Osama?

FROM INTERNET SITE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Mohammed Al-Zawahiri, the comander of special forces of #KLA is the brother of 2nd man of #alQuaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Ayman Al- Zawahiri doesn't have to be on the CIA's payroll to get his payoffs. Just a few weeks after 9-11, this article came out: Bin Laden Puppetmasters Smoked Out In Balkans. One of Ayman's brothers was caught running a KLA-NLA training camp in the US-occupied sector of Kosovo. His trainees were headed for the "jihad" in Macedonia. Since the Cold War, the US has consistently maintained operational ties with Zawahiri. In the 1990's, Aymam held a powwow with a CIA "asset" to hammer out the Balkans strategy:

Al Qaeda is KAPUT!

Not only is its head cut off, but those who were the main group of young Arabs who were recruited by al Qaeda are now fighting with the democratic revolutionaries in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, Syria and even Yemen, which was said to have been the chief recruiting ground for al Qaeda, led by an American Yemen who publishes an al Qaeda recruiting publication called INSPIRE.

Terrorists try to kill as many innocent people as possible in order to terrorize them, while Mohamid Bouazizi actually did inspire the new Arab revolt by self-immolation, just as the Budist monks did in South Vietnam in the early 1960s, killing only themselves to call attention to an injustice that inspires others to rectify the injustice. Bouazizi's death, not the CIA or MOSSAD, resulted in the Arab revolution that is sweeping the entire region, has brought down two long-time dictators and threatens to bring down a half-dozen more before it is over.

Those revolutionaries, who Gadhafi is saying are Al Qaeda, actually hate Al Qaeda and fight Al Qaeda, and those who are active Al Qaeda in Yemen and LIbya and elsewhere, if they try to hijack the revolt or even expose themselves, are themselves killed.

Al Qaeda was the Boogie Man we couldn't see, but now he is visible to all, especially the young, educated and inspired Arabs who want democracy and an open economy that can bring them and their families some prosperity, and reject the idea of being suicide terrorists.

Al Qaeda is KAPUT!

Patrick Henningsen, independent journalist and Managing Editor of 21st Century Wire explains to Russia Today TV why it’s unlikely that any real evidence of the deceased Osama bin Laden will ever be produced by US authorities because for the last 8 years, Osama has been “the busiest corpse in show business”. Henningsen also believes that this news signals that in the long term, the US might move away from seeing the shadowy form of Al-Qaeda as its chief enemy in “the War on Terror”, and refocus on nation state enemies, namely Libya, Syria and Iran.

Not by me .. I reviewed the "crap" posted on that other thread and saw that Steven Gaal posted the "busiest corpse in show business" video.. My apologies for not remembering that and making you view it again .. :lol:
