Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: The Agendas Behind The Bin Laden News Event

The US government's bin Laden story was so poorly crafted that it did not last 48 hours before being fundamentally altered: Indeed, the new story put out on Tuesday by White House press secretary Jay Carney bears little resemblance to the original Sunday evening story. The "fierce firefight" did NOT occur. Osama bin Laden did NOT hide behind a woman. Indeed, bin Laden, Carney said, "was not armed." The firefight story was instantly suspicious since not a single SEAL got a scratch, despite being up against al Qaeda, described by former Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld as "the most dangerous, best trained, vicious killers on the face of the earth." Every original story detail has been changed. It wasn't bin Laden's wife who was murdered by the Navy SEALS, but his son Hamza. Carney blamed the changed story on "the fog of war", but there was no firefight, so where did that fog come from? The White House has also had to abandon the story that "President" Obama and his "national security team" watched tensely as events unfolded in real time, with the operation conveyed into the White House by cameras on the SEAL's helmets. If Obama had, in effect, been watching, he might have noticed that there was no "firefight", and thus, no "kills" during such so-called firefight.
