  • […] Crispin Miller asked the provocative question last night, Is the War on Terror over? His question highlights the lie that we are at war with one man and not an ideology or social or […]

  • what a friggin JOKE! what a fraud! this is such a total HOAX! yeah, right, anyone believes this load of kerfuffle also believes that television wrestling is ‘on-the-level’ and i have this bridge downtown…

    bin laden… long-time associate who in 1992 or so signed a $295mln deal for his firm to build a joint US-saudi base there; for which he made some $25mln… long-time CIA aset… the leading CIA expert on bin laden stated flatly that bin laden was dead by 1999-2000 from liver disease… he also showed that the images of him from before and after that time were clearly not the same man… and more solid evidence was visible in the voice analysis… not the same voice at all!

    if bin laden had anything to do with 911, i’d be very surprised. but if so, then he helped give the shadows of pentagon/NSA/CIA/FBI/NRO, etc… their wish list on a bloody silver platter. if i were to look anywhere for him… the bush ranch in crawford, texas…

    and isn’t it just too cute that they not only killed him, but then, claiming a DNA sample taken first? bury his body at sea before bringing it to public view and study? hey, as lincoln well-knew, you can fool ENOUGH of the people ENOUGH of the time… suckers. the earth really is flat…
