Pentagon, White House Can't Get Their Bin Laden Fairy Tale Straight

by Steve Watson

The purported Bin Laden raid hoax gets kookier by the minute. The account has already changed multiple times over as the Pentagon and the White House do not seem to be able to get their story straight with each other. The entire debacle is only serving to throw up more questions and create more doubt over the legitimacy of the entire fable.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters Tuesday “Even I am confused” when he was questioned over the exact details of the Navy SEAL raid on the so called “compound”.

Carney made of number of revisions to the original account that was relayed Monday by Deputy National Security Adviser John Brennan and other Pentagon officials.

While Brennan had said that Bin Laden engaged in a firefight with US commandos and resisted capture, Carney told reporters that the al qaeda leader “was not armed”.

"He [bin Laden] was engaged in a firefight with those that entered the area of the house he was in. And whether or not he got off any rounds, I quite frankly don't know," Brennan had said Monday. Other pentagon officials told the same story earlier in the day.

When questioned on Tuesday, however, Carney said that "resistance does not require a firearm" but directed questions about how bin Laden "resisted" to the Pentagon. This followed a background, off-camera briefing for television reporters later Monday, during which a senior White House official said bin Laden was not armed when he was killed.

Pakistani officials have even suggested that there wasn’t even a shot fired in the raid, which contradicts the US government assertion that al qaeda henchmen were firing indiscriminately at the special ops team.

Details about the use of a woman as a human shield have also been chopped and changed multiple times.

At a Pentagon briefing early on Monday, a senior defense official said bin Laden was hiding behind a woman so he could get shots away at the US soldiers. "He was firing behind her," the official said.

This was then expounded upon by Brennan who said Bin Laden was “hiding behind women who were put in front of him as a shield,”

A woman killed in the raid was bin Laden’s wife, Brennan said: “She was positioned in a way that indicated that she was being used as a shield.”

Yet later that account was altered by another Pentagon official who claimed Bin Laden’s wife was “injured but not killed,” and that “A different guy’s wife was killed”.

Then yet another official familiar with the operation said it did not appear that any woman was used as a human shield.

Then Tuesday, Press Secretary Carney said that when Bin Laden was approached, the Al Qaeda leader's "wife" rushed the US forces. The woman was shot in the leg but not killed, Carney said.

Conveniently, this wife who was dead, but then not dead, has also now identified Bin Laden’s body both to the Navy SEALs and Pakistani authorities. You know, the body they dumped in the sea, and the Pakistani authorities that were not involved, but then were involved and then were not involved again.

Another part of the story that has been revised is Brennan’s assertion that Bin Laden’s son Khalid was killed in the attack. However, the official White House transcript of the on the record briefing states that it was a different son named Hamza, who was killed.

Quite why Brennan had gotten these fundamental details wrong is unclear given that he was one of the officials supposedly watching the entire raid via a live video feed.

Here is Brennan’s briefing:

Here is Carney’s “revised” account:

Carney also noted that there is a discrepancy in the number of floors raided by the SEAL team inside the luxury mansion “compound”, a description in itself that has since been seriously questioned given that the dwelling had no air conditioning, had damp and growing around it and contained only a small triangular plot of land at the back, according to reporters on the scene.

In addition, the value of the property, originally said to be $1 million dollars, is way off the mark according to property professionals in Abbottabad, who say it is worth less than a quarter of that amount.

In short, it is a less than attractive house that is nothing out of the ordinary for where it is located, which is most likely why the people in the immediate vicinity find it laughable and beyond ridiculous to suggest that they were neighbours of Osama Bin Laden for six years.

Why can’t the government get it’s story straight? Is the White House intentionally muddying the waters to divert attention to the minutia of the event and away from the fact that the entire scenario is on it’s face ludicrous? Or are they just flat out lying through their teeth?

205250 You can never convince a crank of anything. Each and every fact either gets ignored or twisted in order to fit their crazy conspiracy theory. Like this doofus above, 9397. He assumes that all of Bin Laden's buddies would go along with a massive American conspiracy because.. uh... step 3: profit.

Some people are too stupid to live.
