911 was an inside job wrote:
According to the FBI's Chief of Investigative Publicity back in June of 2006, "The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Osama bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11."
" http://www.projectcensored.org/top-stories/ar...
By the way, the FBI's "Most Wanted" profile didn't mention 9/11 right up until an unarmed bin Laden was allegedly liquidated (without trial, and maybe without evidence).
----------
What the "bin Laden raid" anniversary truly marks is the further decline of the United States into a police state, where an Executive branch can order executions without trial (including executions of its own citizens), where a cowed corporate press demands no proof from our leaders to back questionable claims, and where American citizens, perhaps too slow to wake up, are terrorized by their own government and military issuing bogus "threat level" statements and statements about "enemy chatter," and designing silly sting operations involving inept "shoe bombers" and "underwear bombers" as an excuse to subject its citizens to all kinds of indignities in the name of "security," launching wars of aggression justified with obvious lies, and even fabricating "false-flag" terrorism against domestic targets to justify unconstitutional legislation and a further slide toward police-state control.
American citizens are "terrorized by their own government"?
That's strange, I'm an American citizen and I don't feel the least it terrorized by this government. Irritated sometimes, but terrorized? Sounds like plain old paranoia to me.

"launching wars of aggression justified with obvious lies,"
You hit the nail on the head there. G.W. Bush's Iraq war was pure
aggression based on a million lies. And he got away with it.

Regarding the 9/11 "terrorist" attack:

WILLIAM CHRISTISON – Served on the analysis side of the CIA for 28 years, including positions as National Intelligence Officer (principal adviser to the Director of Central Intelligence on certain areas) and finally as Director of the CIA's Office of Regional and Political Analysis, a 250-person unit responsible for political analysis of every country and region in the world.
CHRISTISON wrote:

"[Researcher] David Ray Griffin’s [book]'Debunking 9/11 Debunking' is a superb compendium of the strong body of evidence showing the official U.S. Government story of what happened on September 11, 2001 to be almost certainly a monstrous series of lies. Tragically, the entire course of U.S. foreign and domestic policies since that date has grown out of these almost certain falsehoods. This single book could (and should) provide the basis for the United Nations‚ International Court of Justice, or some specially constituted global body (independent of the U.S.) to investigate with highest priority, and publicly report its findings about, the charge that unknown elements within the U.S. Government, and possibly some individuals elsewhere closely allied to the U.S., caused or contributed to causing the events of September 11 to happen."

Regarding the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing:

BRIGADIER GENERAL BENTON K. PARTIN - Thirty one years active duty in the Air Force. Progressively responsible executive, scientific and technical assignments directing organizations engaged in research, development, testing, analysis, requirements generation and acquisition management of weapons systems. Assignments from laboratory to the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

The following is an excerpt of Gen. Partin's letter to then-U.S. Senator Trent Lott:
GENERAL PARTIN wrote:
The attached [bomb damage assessment] report contains conclusive proof that the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was not caused solely by the truck bomb. Evidence shows that the massive destruction was primarily the result of four demolition charges placed at critical structural points at the third floor level.

...

It is my hope and request that, as a Member of Congress, you will support a Congressional investigation to determine the true initiators of this bombing, which could not have occurred the way in which it has been portrayed as having happened. Further, it is requested that you defer action and reserve judgment on socalled antiterrorism legislation that has serious civil liberties implications, and which would not be passed except for the Oklahoma City bombing until the causes of the Oklahoma City disaster are determined by independent investigators.

Regarding the 1968 MLK assassination:

Here is statement by Coretta Scott-King, after a jury reached its conclusion in the 1999 Kings v Jowers case:

[QUOTE who="CORETTA SCOTT KING"]

Americans shouldn't have to pay for our government. We should have volunteer government and the private sector should do everything, charge us whatever it wants.
It is funny what is interesting to you loons. Just admit it, Romney is successful and you can't handle someone that made it with out government handout income.

4) Despite the fact that the White House released “situation room” photos which purported to show Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and the rest of Obama’s security staff watching the raid which killed Bin Laden live, it was later admitted by CIA director Leon Panetta that Obama could not have seen the raid because the live feed was cut off before the Navy SEALS entered the compound. The photos were described by many as having “historical significance,” forming a “captivating” record of Obama’s greatest success and being the “defining moment” of his Presidency. One image showed Hillary Clinton with her hand over her mouth as if witnessing an anxious or crucial moment in the raid. Media reports at the time claimed that the photos represented the moment when “The leader of the free world saw the terror chief shot in the left eye.” However, the photos were staged as a PR stunt for public consumption, nobody in the photos ever saw Bin Laden killed live, nor did they see the Navy SEALS even enter the compound.

5) As even mainstream journalists began to cast suspicion on the official narrative behind the raid, the media reported that Al-Qaeda itself had confirmed every detail of Obama’s address the the nation. However, the conduit for such a claim was in fact an organization called SITE, which is a notorious Pentagon propaganda front run by the daughter of an Israeli spy that has been caught on numerous occasions releasing fake cartoonish “Al-Qaeda” videos at the most politically expedient times for both the Bush and Obama administrations. The SITE organization is nothing more than a contractor for the U.S. government, receiving some $500,000 a year annually from Uncle Sam, and yet the corporate media instantly swallowed and regurgitated the claim that “Al-Qaeda” had confirmed the official story after SITE directed them to an anonymous posting on an Islamic website.

Obama has done enough violations
, from invasion of private rights by propagating AGAINST free speech BY CALLING MORMONS,

to exhibiting wrong conduct calling "slut' word of Flute case (which belongs to public judgment),

to enacting positions setting against freedom value and thinking of all people by calling Obamcare ,

to giving poor picture of bad answers by inflating the Bin Laden controversy --(Bin laden, Bin Laden dead --why not captured alive with unarmed Laden--ah, better wiped out all evidences by burning Laden at sea then for no presentation of NO FACTUAL PICTURES AND evidences -- but how would that meet the logic of FACTS PRESENTATION --just who saw it?-- from where ?--pictures made from Hollywood --where ?--then on the contrary built more Al Qaeda in Libya, and Middle East?)--as not complying to freedom of information acts.

OBAMA IS a deceptionist, but not a commander.

It is false and of disaster by naming Obama as chief.

When Obama who does not know military, position stand and pricinciple, is not a commander-in-chief, he is very dangerous since other stupidities think of falsehood too to take IT calling AS chief by their silliness, it can cause disaster.

When one knows no military, one can commit insanity of wrong cause position, may use soldiers to rid of those who disagree with him by calling Marshal law to confront internal freedom thinking and voices, which can also destroy soldiers, country, people of all kinds and concerns by telling what are orders.

Such a deceitful person Obama is no commander-in-chief, who can take for granted to call order to use soldiers to oppress and suppress internal freedom, demonstrations, like Tiaanmann Square Massacre in China, which is against the Founder Fathers' doctrine in a democracy -- by rules of free voices and speech that would not allow military involvement.

Obama could act like radical Chinese Communists Mao, to wipe out the whole country of freedom and freedom thinking of disagreement, to fulfill his craving of Communistic extremist wishful thinking , in order to operate the Marxism creed principle of Communism , for he could not debate on issues, and wants to fight against the truth of freedom (--- as these are for all people's needs ), and he does not like freedom .

OBAMA OF RADICALISM IS NOT A COMMANDER-IN CHIEF, BECAUSE HE does not fight for people's freedom and workers' LIVES AND free SPEECH and stand for freedom policy around the world, and he CANNOT SURVIVE IN A DEMOCRACY.

Obama is trying to take advantage of foundations built by pioneers, thinking himself as commander-in-chief as some silly fools would even take it that way in recognition, for him to master-mind the position, to attempt against all people of freedom , of free thinking, of FREE SPEECH AND BEYOND, TO DO AGAINST FREEOM WILL OF all PEOPLE.

In a DEMOCRACY, ONE as Obama WHO IS of COMMUNISTIC NATURE AND DOES NOT implement FREEDOM, IS NO WAY POSSIBLE a commander-in-chief AT ALL.


Obama is very dangerous, being a very volatile, erosive and corrosive figure who is not wanted
IN FREEDOM WORLD, since he cannot be qualified as A COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF in a democracy.

Mitt Romney is hitting back at President Obama for suggesting he wouldn't have had the guts to order the raid that killed terrorist mastermind Osama Bin Laden.

The likely Republican presidential nominee insisted on CBS' "This Morning" Tuesday that he would have taken the same action — and Obama is simply trying to make the anniversary of Bin Laden's death into a "politically divisive event."

"I think that credit for the decision is entirely appropriate," said Romney, who was accompanied by his wife, Ann. "But attacking me is the wrong course."

The former Massachusetts governor and Obama have been sparring since the president's re-election team released a campaign video last week questioning whether Romney would have ordered the attack.

In it, former President Bill Clinton praises Obama for taking "the harder, more honorable path" by choosing to take down Bin Laden last year, on May 1. The ad then asks, "Which path would Mitt Romney have taken?"

The video points out a comment Romney made in April 2007, in which the former Massachusetts governor said it wasn't "worth moving heaven and earth, spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person."

"There are plenty of differences between President Obama and myself, but let's not make up ones based on, well he might not have done this," Romney told CBS.“It's disappointing and it's unfortunate.”

Meanwhile, Ann Romney tried to tamp down the perception that her husband is too buttoned up to relate to voters.

"I still look at him as the boy that I met in high school when he was playing all the jokes and really just being crazy, pretty crazy," she said, playfully grabbing her husband by the shoulders.

"And so there's this wild and crazy man inside of there just waiting to come out!" she exclaimed.
