Get ready folks, the propaganda machine will be cranking out garbage for the next several weeks, probably until the election. This report is really amusing. It says that OBL's alleged DNA was tested against his sister's. It says his sister isn't identified, but she died of brain cancer in Boston.
Just how many of OBL's sisters have died of brain cancer in Boston?
Now this report suggests that there were multiple methods of identification used, but no mention of his unfortunate sister.
Please don't be fooled into believing these conflicting reports to be accidental. Whenever a psy-op is executed, it is standard procedure to put out multiple variants of the story against the possibility of an unforeseen complication. Eventually, the government will endorse one of them when they are satisfied that there are no loose ends.
And in this report the government is building its bona fides by denouncing a fake photo, most likely of its own creation, and in preparation for another fake which it will verify.
[Beware, gruesome photo]
Here's some more excellent propaganda: An ostensible enemy of the US argues that the killing of OBL was to prevent him from speaking out about US/al-Qaeda past cooperation. Ignoring for the moment the inanity of what's being offered, it confers legitimacy upon the US's claim that they killed OBL because a critic isn't disputing it.
Now that the moment is up: The relationship between al-Qaeda and the CIA has been the subject of countless book and mainstream news broadcasts for a decade. it's no secret. And if OBL wanted to spill those beans he's had a decade to do it.
Get used to this stuff, there's gonna be lots of it.
Do I believe that OBL was alive until yesterday, and was killed by agents of the US government? No.
