    Democracy Now - "Four years after U.S. forces assassinated Osama bin Laden, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh has published an explosive piece claiming much of what the Obama administration said about the attack was wrong. Hersh claims at the time of the U.S. raid, bin Laden had been held as a prisoner by Pakistani intelligence since 2006. Top Pakistani military leaders knew about the operation and provided key assistance. Contrary to U.S. claims that it located bin Laden by tracking his courier, a former Pakistani intelligence officer identified bin Laden’s whereabouts in return for the bulk of a $25 million U.S. bounty. Questions are also raised about whether bin Laden was actually buried at sea, as the U.S. claimed. Hersh says instead the Navy SEALs threw parts of bin Laden’s body into the Hindu Kush mountains from their helicopter. The White House claims the piece is "riddled with inaccuracies." Hersh joins us to lay out his findings and respond to criticism from government officials and media colleagues."

    The Killing of Osama bin Laden
    by Seymour M. Hersh

    It’s been four years since a group of US Navy Seals assassinated Osama bin Laden in a night raid on a high-walled
    compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The killing was the high point of Obama’s first term, and a major factor in his
    re-election. The White House still maintains that the mission was an all-American affair, and that the senior generals
    of Pakistan’s army and Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) were not told of the raid in advance. This is false, as a
    re many other elements of the Obama administration’s account. The White House’s story might have been written by
    Lewis Carroll: would bin Laden, target of a massive international manhunt, really decide that a resort town forty miles
    from Islamabad would be the safest place to live and command al-Qaida’s operations? He was hiding in the open.
    So America said.

    I took for granted we weren't being told the whole truth about the death of Osama bin Laden. Truth be told, I'm not overly concerned with the details of how it happened. As far as him being killed: Well, it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

    I doubt bin ladin had anything to do with sept. 11th. But
    if he did, he certainly was not alone.

    If we can get those culprits who mastermind the false-flag attack, then
    we'd be much much further along the path of justice.

    Who Was Killed in Abbottabad in May 2011? Osama bin Laden or Someone Else? Pentagon
    Ordered Purge of Osama “Death Files” from Data Bank


    By Prof Michel Chossudovsky

    This article was first published in July 2013 following the Pentagon’s Decision to Purge the bin Laden “death files” from the
    Pentagon’s data bank. The decision was justified “to protect the names of the personnel involved in the raid,
    according to the inspector general’s draft report.”


    The personnel involved were members of the Navy SEAL team 6 operative which undertook the bin Laden Abbottabad raids
    in May 2011.


    In a bitter irony, three months after Obama had officially announced that the SEAL 6 unit had killed Obama bin Laden, 22
    NAVY Seal belonging to the same unit as the Navy SEALS involved in the Osama Abbotabad operation,
    died
    mysteriously in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan:
