BREAKING: The Real Reason Osama Bin Laden’s Death Photos Weren’t Released

According to a new report the “real reason” that the photos of Osama bin Laden’s body were never released by the White House following his death was because it was riddled with “magazines-worth” of bullet holes.

The SOFREP (Special Operations Forces Situation Report) article cites two anonymous sources to dispute a passage from the book No Easy Day, written by SEAL Team 6 operator Matt Bissonnette, that claimed his body only had “several rounds” in it.

“In his death throes, he was still twitching and convulsing. Another assaulter and I trained our lasers on his chest and fired several rounds,” the book recalled.

However the SOFREP report called Bissonnette’s account of the incident “polite” and described a much more grueling scene as the terror leader met his demise:

But this is perhaps the most measured and polite description that one could give of how operator after operator took turns dumping magazines-worth of ammunition into Bin Laden’s body, two confidential sources within the community have told us. When all was said and done, UBL had over a hundred bullets in him, by the most conservative estimate.

From there the author of the article went on to question if what the SEALs did was legal or if it was something that may have been more sinister at play. Jack Murphy wrote that “Provided the enemy is not surrendering, it is morally, legally, and ethically appropriate to shoot the body a few times to ensure that he is really dead and no longer a threat.”

However with that in mind he said the SEAL operators actions were “excessive” and that they amounted to “pure self-indulgence.”

He continued, saying “You may not care if Bin Laden got some extra holes punched in him, few of us do, but what should concern you is a trend within certain special operations units to engage in this type of self-indulgent, and ultimately criminal, behavior.” He added that “Gone unchecked, these actions get worse over time.”

Granted, this is simply a report citing unnamed sources however it would provide a solid reason as to why the photos of UBL were never released and why the administration is still adamant about not letting the public see them. As Murphy wrote in his article “The picture itself would likely cause an international scandal, and investigations would be conducted…”

“Now you know the real reason why the Obama administration has not released pictures of Osama Bin Laden’s corpse,” he concluded. “To do so would show the world a body filled with a ridiculous number of gunshot wounds.”

Just off of the I-15 North of Barstow, Ca, Yermo Logistics Marine Base, I travel past this place on a regular basis, I have never seen so many vehicle/tanks/mraps/humvee’s at this location EVER.. In my opinion this is clearly a build-up to something much larger… There are actually maybe 5x times more vehicles there that you cant see in the video

FBI whitewashing Saudi connection to 9/11

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 11.15.13 AM

Former Senator Bob Graham says: “This is a pervasive pattern of covering up the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11 by all of the agencies of the federal government which have access to information that might illuminate Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11.”

Why? Whom are they protecting? And clearly this coverup is bipartisan, lasting through the Bush and Obama Administrations.

The American people need accountability — and a realistic counter-jihad policy. Neither party is giving it to us. We must demand it.

“How the FBI is whitewashing the Saudi connection to 9/11,” by Paul Sperry, New York Post, April 12, 2015:

Just 15 days before the 9/11 attacks, a well-connected Saudi family suddenly abandoned their luxury home in Sarasota, Fla., leaving behind jewelry, clothes, opulent furniture, a driveway full of cars — including a brand new Chrysler PT Cruiser — and even a refrigerator full of food.

About the only thing not left behind was a forwarding address. The occupants simply vanished without notifying their neighbors, realtor or even mail carrier.

The 3,300-square-foot home on Escondito Circle belonged to Esam Ghazzawi, a Saudi adviser to the nephew of then-King Fahd. But at the time, it was occupied by his daughter and son-in-law, who beat a hasty retreat back to Saudi Arabia just two weeks before the attacks after nearly a six-year stay here.

Neighbors took note of the troubling coincidence and called the FBI, which opened an investigation that led to the startling discovery that at least one “family member” trained at the same flight school as some of the 9/11 hijackers in nearby Venice, Fla.

The investigation into the prominent Saudi family’s ties to the hijackers started on Sept. 19, 2001, and remained active for several years. It was led by the FBI’s Tampa field office but also involved the bureau’s field offices in New York and Washington, and also the Southwest Florida Domestic Security Task Force.

Agents identified persons of interest in the case, establishing their ties to other terrorists, sympathies with Osama bin Laden and anti-American remarks. They looked into their bank accounts, colleges and places of employment. They tracked at least one suspect’s re-entry into the US.

The Saudi-9/11 connection in Florida was no small part of the overall 9/11 investigation. Yet it was never shared with Congress. Nor was it mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report.

Now it’s being whitewashed again, in a newly released report by the 9/11 Review Commission, set up last year by Congress to assess “any evidence now known to the FBI that was not considered by the 9/11 Commission.” Though the FBI acknowledges the Saudi family was investigated, it maintains the probe was a dead end.

The review panel highlighted one local FBI report generated from the investigation that said Abdulaziz and Anoud al-Hijji, the prominent Saudi couple who “fled” their home, had “many connections” to “individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.”

But: “The FBI told the Review Commission that the communication was ‘poorly written’ and wholly unsubstantiated,” the panel noted in its 128-page report. “When questioned later by others in the FBI, the special agent who wrote (it) was unable to provide any basis for the contents of the document or explain why he wrote it as he did.”

How strange. Yet panelists did not interview the unidentified agent for themselves. They just accepted headquarters’ impeachment of his work.

Odder still, the agent’s report was just one of many other FBI communications detailing ties between the Saudi family and the hijackers. In fact, the Tampa office of the FBI recently was ordered to turn over more than 80,000 pages of documents filling some 27 boxes from its 9/11 investigation to a federal judge hearing a Freedom of Information Act case filed by local journalists over the Sarasota angle. The judge is sorting through the boxes to determine which documents should remain classified. Most are marked “SECRET/NOFORN,” meaning no foreign nationals — a classification reserved for highly sensitive materials.

“The report provides no plausible explanation for the contradiction between the FBI’s current claim that it found nothing and its 2002 memo finding ‘many connections’ between the Sarasota family and the 9/11 terrorists,” Thomas Julin, the attorney who filed the FOIA lawsuit against the FBI, told the Miami Herald.

The panel’s report also doesn’t explain why visitor security logs for the gated Sarasota community and photos of license tags matched vehicles driven by the hijackers, including 9/11 ringleader Mohamed Atta.

The three-member review panel was appointed by FBI Director James Comey, who also officially released the findings.

Former Democratic Sen. Bob Graham, who in 2002 chaired the congressional Joint Inquiry into 9/11, maintains the FBI is covering up a Saudi support cell in Sarasota for the hijackers. He says the al-Hijjis’ “urgent” pre-9/11 exit suggests “someone may have tipped them off” about the coming attacks.

Graham has been working with a 14-member group in Congress to urge President Obama to declassify 28 pages of the final report of his inquiry which were originally redacted, wholesale, by President George W. Bush.

“The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11, and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier,” he said, adding, “I am speaking of the kingdom,” or government, of Saudi Arabia, not just wealthy individual Saudi donors.

Sources who have read the censored Saudi section say it cites CIA and FBI case files that directly implicate officials of the Saudi Embassy in Washington and its consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks — which, if true, would make 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war by a foreign government. The section allegedly identifies high-level Saudi officials and intelligence agents by name, and details their financial transactions and other dealings with the San Diego hijackers. It zeroes in on the Islamic Affairs Department of the Saudi Embassy, among other Saudi entities.

The review commission, however, concludes there is “no evidence” that any Saudi official provided assistance to the hijackers, even though the panel failed to interview Graham or his two key investigators — former Justice Department attorney Dana Lesemann and FBI investigator Michael Jacobson — who ran down FBI leads tying Saudi officials to the San Diego hijackers and documented their findings in the 28 pages.

Graham smells a rat: “This is a pervasive pattern of covering up the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11 by all of the agencies of the federal government which have access to information that might illuminate Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11.”

REPORT: OBAMA WANTED TO RELEASE TALIBAN FIVE WITHOUT BERGDAHL IN RETURN *(OBAMA WANTED HIS MUSLIM BROTHERS TO GO BACK TO WORK KILLING PEOPLE.)* THE ONLY JOBS OBAMA EVER CREATED.

Prior to Bergdahl’s disappearance, Obama planned to release al-Qaeda-linked fighters to empty out Gitmo

by KIT DANIELS 

President Obama originally wanted to release the “Taliban Five” as part of a largely one-sided exchange to empty out Guantanamo Bay and only asked for Bergdahl in return after he met resistance from the intelligence community, according to a report cross-checked with other documents.

The president initially only asked the Taliban to open a “political office” in Qatar to “conduct peace negotiations” in exchange for the five prisoners, but had to modify the deal to include Bergdahl to appease intelligence officials, the Investor’s Business Daily stated in a report that’s plausible when cross-referenced with a 2009 executive order and a 2012 article reporting on Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai.

On Jan. 22, 2009, five months before Bergdahl found himself on Taliban captivity, President Obama signed Executive Order 13492 to launch the “review and disposition” of Gitmo prisoners, including the Taliban Five, as part of a process to ultimately close the facility.

“Bergdahl, who walked off his post and into the arms of the Taliban in June 2009, wasn’t even part of the negotiation back then,” the IBD stated. “The original deal was a one-sided release, naked any trade for a ‘POW’ or ‘hostage’ or soldier who allegedly had served ‘with honor and distinction.’”

A 2012 news article on the proposed prisoner release also alluded to a one-sided exchange when reporting on a statement from then-President Karzai asking for the release of the Gitmo prisoners.

“Karzai made the statement to journalists gathered at a press conference in Tokyo on Sunday, responding to a question as to whether he felt the US should release the prisoners to Qatar – an earlier plan,” TOLOnews.com reported.

Interestingly, the article makes no mention of Bergdahl.

“Truth is, Obama used Bergdahl as a pretext for doing what he always sought to do — empty out Gitmo, national security be damned,” the IBD added. “The freed Taliban leaders were among the nearly 40 prisoners at Gitmo classified as ‘indefinite detainees’ — too dangerous to release.”

“To shutter the Cuban prison, Obama first had to whittle down that list, starting with the Taliban Five.”

The Obama administration only seemed truly motivated to save Bergdahl from captivity last year after the White House accidentally revealed the head of CIA operations in Afghanistan, five years after Bergdahl’s disappearance.

That, of course, poses the question whether Bergdahl was actually an embedded intelligence asset who was endangered by the White House screw-up, which would explain why a modified prisoner swap that included Bergdahl would meet less resistance from intelligence officials.

Raising Children to be Soldiers of Allah

“Moreover [the children’s] mindset [in the Islamic Madrasa education] is nurtured with a message of hatred towards all non-Muslim communities… Islam is the only true religion, all other religions are false — this is what they are taught from the beginning by the Madrasa teacher. They also chant nonstop the mantra that all nonbelievers (in Islam) are Kafirs and infidels fit to be destroyed by all true Muslims.” — Shudhansu S. Tunga, author of A 20 Million Billion Trillion Dollar Loss: The Story of India’s Downslide Independence.

In such a small land as Bangladesh, roughly the size of the U.S. state of Iowa, there are 15,000 officially registered madrasas, accompanied by 200,000 teachers “teaching” four million “students.” If one adds to it the number of unregistered madrasas, the number is as high as 64,000.

“Bangladesh is appeasing the most insidious and violent strains of Islam… That appeasement of theocratic demands and naked threats must end, now.” — Bob Churchill, Director of Communications, International Humanist and Ethical Union.

One can imagine from the number of madrasas and mosques — abetted by a government that turns a blind eye to lawlessness — how many people listening to hate preaching are now being raised to be “Soldiers of Allah.”

Dissent is not tolerated in the monolithic Islamic society of Bangladesh. Extremist Islamic forces not only vandalize the idols and temples of the Hindus or Buddhists, they are also kill anyone who speaks out against radicalization or Islamization.

The extremist Islamic forces mostly target university teachers, engineers, writers and bloggers, one after another — whoever is not in total accord with their faith, including anyone secular-minded.

Notably, it was after the founding the International Islamic Front for Jihad in 1998, that Bangladesh experienced the first major attack conducted by Islamists, on March 6, 1999. It killed 10 and critically injured 105 innocent people who were listening to music at a cultural program organized by Udichi, a secular cultural organization.

Since then, many terrorist attacks have taken place in Bangladesh. Nonetheless, the country’s politicians do not take initiatives to prevent Islamic radicalization, presumably in fear of displeasing the country’s huge Muslim populace. Rather, every incoming government not only winks and nods the Islamists, but also provides room to nurture extremism. Bangladesh, a country roughly size of the U.S. state of Iowa, has 15,000 officially registered Madrasas [Islamic religious schools], accompanied by 200,000 teachers “teaching” four million “students.” If one adds to it the number of unregistered madrasas, the number is as high as 64,000.

It is no secret anymore that the madrasa is the main extremist breeding factory. Shudhansu S. Tunga writes,

“Frankly, the Madrasa education instead of uplifting the Muslim boys and girls, is keeping them downgraded on many points, especially to face today’s job market competition. Moreover, their mindset is nurtured with a message of hatred towards all non-Muslim communities. This is the gravest of dangers not only for the future of the Muslims but also for the whole mankind. Islam is the only true religion, all other religions are false─ this is what they are taught from the beginning by the Madrasa teacher. They also chant nonstop the mantra that all non-believers (in Islam) are Kafirs and infidels fit to be destroyed by all true Muslims.”[1]

In such a small land, there are also 250,399 mosques where believers are being summoned to hate non-Muslims. They especially curse the Jews by using the anti-Semitic Koranic verses and the widely read hadiths.

Bangladesh is now one of the most dangerous places for a dissident to live. Murders this year include Samiulla Afridi and Avijit Roy.

Samiulla Afridi, the lawyer who represented Dr. Shakil Afridi (no relation), was shot dead on March 17. Dr. Shakil Afridi had conducted a vaccination program to help the Central Intelligence Agency locate Usama bin Laden. Samiulla Afridi’s murder was presumably retribution for having represented the doctor, whom the US let remain in a Pakistani jail.

Avijit Roy, an American citizen of Bangladeshi origin, who had a PhD in software engineering from Singapore, was hacked to death on March 17 after attending a book fair with his wife, also wounded in the attack. Roy, an engineer, was also the author of several books on science, atheism and freedom of expression. He was the founder of Mukto-Mona [“Free Mind”] blog, and well known for his writings which opposed religious fundamentalism. No one of course has been caught. It is not known if anyone has even looked for the perpetrators of both crimes.

J”Those who made the most credible threats on Roy’s life have been allowed to do so with impunity, and now he is dead. As Roy himself warned, Bangladesh is appeasing the most insidious and violent strains of Islamism, and he knew his own life was under threat. That appeasement of theocratic demands and naked threats must end, now.”The Director of Communications of the International Humanist and Ethical Union, Bob Churchill, said,

In an emotional piece in The Guardian, Alom Shaha writes,

“It is a land of lush green fields nourished by brightly burning sun. This is what is depicted on the nation’s flag, a design that rejects the religious symbolism found in those of India and Pakistan — the latter of which Bangladesh fought a bitter war of independence, partly so it could become a secular state. But that early commitment has been betrayed and instead Bangladesh has become a nation where those promoting secular values can expect to live their lives in fear, be threatened with death, and even brutally killed.”

Avijit Roy was not the first victim targeted by the Islamists in Bangladesh. Last year, Ahmed Rajib Haider, an architect by profession, was also hacked to death by machete-wielding attackers from an Islamist militant group, Ansarullah Bangla Team. It takes its ideology from Yemen, based on statements from the Al-Qaeda ideologue, Anwar Al-Awlaki, and associated with the Jamaat-E-Islami party in Bangladesh.

The same group attacked another blogger, Asif Mohiuddin, who through his writings opposed the Quranic chapter 4, verse 34, which says, “A man can beat his wife, if she does not obey her husband.”

Mohiuddin, also involved with Mukto-Mona blog, was arrested by the Bangladeshi authorities for “hurting religious beliefs.”

Professor Humayun Azad was an esteemed university teacher, and one of the most prominent scholars in the country. On February 27, 2004, Islamists attacked him him with machete; he narrowly escaped death. But on August 11, 2004, he was found dead in his apartment in Munich, Germany, where he had arrived a week earlier to conduct a research on the German poet, Heinrich Heine.

Bangladeshi militants have had longstanding relations with Al-Qaeda and its leaders, including Osama Bin Laden and Ayman Al Zawahiri. According to reports, Bangladesh’s first openly-formed Islamist militant outfit, Harkat-ul-Jihad (Huji), is closely linked with Al-Qaeda. Huji emerged from a group of Bangladeshi Afghan war veterans, who had gone to Afghanistan and joined with mujaheedin [“jihad warriors”], addressed the press conference.

There are reports that Bin Laden, in February 1998, came up with a coalition of Islamic militants named “International Islamic Front for Jihad against the Jews and Crusaders” to fight against the U.S. Among five coalition founders, one of the Bangladeshi militants and Zawahiri were signatories of a statement, issued in February 1998.

Major Gen (Ret). Abdur Rashid, a Bangladeshi security analyst, said, “Many Bangladeshi militants had visited or re-visited Afghanistan through Pakistan and maintained the links established earlier. The communication between them became easier with the availability of internet.”

One can imagine from the number of madrasas and mosques — abetted by a government that turns a blind eye to lawlessness — how many people listening to hate preaching are now being raised to be “Soldiers of Allah.”
