Osama Bin Laden: The Uncomfortable Truth

Seymour_Hersh-IPSSeymour Hersh, Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist, was the darling of the left when he exposed the My Lai Massacre during the Vietnam War in 1969. When he reported the mistreatment of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison in 2004 liberal mainstream media applauded his efforts after all it was another dagger in the George Bush Presidency. So what’s not to applaud?

Now however it would appear the shoe is on the other foot and Hersh’s sleuthing has discovered a very uncomfortable truth about the death of Osama Bin Laden. That it was pure theater. A performance in the best tradition of Hollywood and C. B. DeMille.

On Tuesday, NBC News unwittingly confirmed Hersh’s assertions that Bin Laden had been a medically attended prisoner in Pakistan at Aboudad for several years.

Realizing the problem of truth and obvious White House pressure they quickly retracted any and all original assertions.

Now come the personal attacks on Hersh calling him a crackpot, a headline grabber, misinformed and un-American.

Hersh is not backing off and continues to claim that “The apex of Barack Obama’s Presidency is actually built on a lie”.

The irony is that this is not the first time that such an accusation has been made


Yours truly, in my book 44th A Presidential Conspiracy published in September of 2014 and written a year earlier made almost the same assertions as Hersh.

If you simply look at the facts as I did such as:

1. Bin Laden’s liver problem needing continual medical treatment.
2. The location of the Aboudad Compound in relation to the Pakistan Military Academy.
3. The number of floors in the compound in relation to other buildings in the area.
4. The need of a faltering President before the next election to somehow unite Americans.
5. The razing and dozing of the compound a few weeks after the attack.
6. The suspicious deaths of 22 members of the Navy Seal Team #6 which was involved.

You can make a case that all was not what it appeared to be. Typical of this administration.
