  1. By the way that wasn't Osama BL that was killed in Abbottabad. Benazhir Bhutto was quite right when she told the BBC in 2007 that Osama BL was dead. Osama was the 17th child of a family of 55 siblings. He had at least one younger brother who looked a lot like him. That would explain a few years back when everybody was commenting that OBL must have dyed his hair to look younger in that video. Nope. He was younger. That is also why he was 'watching tapes of himself' on tv. He wasn't watching he was studying in order to play the part more accurately. Bin Ladin suffered a major kidney wound in 1985 or 6. Frankly his life expectancy ran out and he expired from his condition. That's also how he gave the ISI the slip. As Osama's brother he could come in and out on his own passport. I think he more or less believed the same ideology as Osama, except he had a weakness for porn. That's also a clue. It's just not Osama. If you start to dig the story doesn't add up.

  2. I've been reading ramblings somewhere recently asserting al-J is a CIA front. It IS in Qatar, afterall, is it not?

  3. AL JAREEZA IS A BRITISH AGENT HAVING BEEN INFILTRATED BY ALL LIAR BRITISH JOURNALISTS AND SWHOSE PORPAGANDA COINCIDE WITH THAT OF BRITISH BASTARD CORPORATION-BBC LIES.EVER INCE BRITISH JOURBALISTS INFILTREATED AL JAREEZA THE LAYING WAS IMMINENT AS IT HAPPEND WITH cnN INFILTRATED BY BRITISH evil scumbag journalists liars.

  4. Very funny that U.S., is so gullible.

  5. Are you calling Al-J a straw man?!

  6. [...] of course ending this Evil Empire Round Up, it seems that Antiwar.com is going through great lenths to claim there is a war between the USA and al-Jazeera, even though al-Jazeera somehow gets to get [...]

  7. Qatar is also home to Haim Saban's Brookings Doha Center, which, like al-Jazeera, is an uncritical supporter of the "Arab Spring." Saban is the billionaire media mogul who told the New York Times, "I'm a one issue guy, and my issue is Israel." So much for Qatar's opposition to the Zionist state!

  8. The large, and ever growing disparity in global income and wealth, along with the continuous pattern of U.S. military aggressions against other peoples for reasons other than self defense, are final evidence of the injustice of the U.S. empire. Full stop
