  1. so embarrassing, these silly fools still think we JUST got Bin Laden…

  2. thesystem liessomcuh,

    You could not any more right. For these guys, and the rest of the gullible who are not keeping score, Bin Laden was declared dead on at least 8 previous occasions that we know of, that are on record, by various high ranking officials and/or heads of state. And the idea that Gareth Porter, who is supposed to be a level headed and consumate thinker on foreign policy, pedaling these ridiculous lies and garbage about Bin Laden having died, for the ninth time by the way, simply proves what I have always known and that is there is no hope for the so-called western world. Amerika, and most if not all of Europe, are completely finished…………………

  4. Two Seals in a bedroom — Only they know

    Be it a fake assignation or the real thing, two Navy Seals went into ben Laden’s bedroom and came out with a body bag, which was flown out to see and thrown overboard.

    Anyway, in the grand scheme of things as it pertains to the root cause and solution to our wars of terrorism, what difference does it make?
