A Very Brief History of Bush and Bin Laden

-- GWB and OBL -- both scions of oil-wealth families

-- 8/8/01, President's Daily Briefing-- Bush is warned bin Laden will attack US. Not clear how much Bush has heard of bin Laden prior to this

-- 9/11/01, bin Laden is immediately named as mastermind of the terror attacks, Bush's presidency receives a tremendous boost

-- 9/13/01, "The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."

-- 9/17/01, "I want justice...There's an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, 'Wanted: Dead or Alive,'"

-- Sept. '01, the bin Laden family is allowed to leave the US without much trouble, apparently on orders from the Bush White House

-- Early Dec. 2001, Bush vows to get bin Laden, "dead or alive"

-- Late Dec. 2001, bin Laden apparently escapes from Tora Bora, after ineffective deployment of US troops

-- 3/13/02, Bush when asked about bin Laden, says "And I wouldn't necessarily say he's at the center of any command structure. And, again, I don't know where he is. I -- I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him."

2002 - 2004, Bush almost never mentions bin Laden as the focus becomes Saddam Hussein and Iraq.

October 2004, after John Kerry brings up the failure to capture bin Laden, Bush says: "BUSH: Gosh, I just don't think I ever said I'm not worried about Osama bin Laden. It's kind of one of those exaggerations.

Of course we're worried about Osama bin Laden. We're on the hunt after Osama bin Laden. We're using every asset at our disposal to get Osama bin Laden."

2005 - present, Bush starts mentioning bin Laden regularly again, after Saddam captured, in order to prop up support for the Iraq war, and the larger war on terror.

It is not clear when Bush promised to do this to bin Laden if he caught him: “I will screw him in the ass!”

"winning the hearts and minds.
and assorted other body parts."
"we're your go-to guys!"

President Bush "dances" but never goes beyond saying "we'll find him, we'll go after him" and words to that effect.

Those kind of weasely statements are suggestive of a President who has no intention of actually DOING anything to Osama, but they ARE consistent with him being able to use Osama as an excuse to start wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

They are also suggestive of Osama bin Ladin being a complete myth. Sure, he may have been a real person and may even still be alive, but he is not even wanted by the FBI for 9/11 because they have no evidence that he did it.

Why is it that disinfo agents/propagandists/shills/PR persons or whatever people like "boloboffin", "laredS", "greyl -or is it leonard grey - or lennie something else", "vv", "riddler", "dithers" et al. - why is that they almost always post with very aggressive, disrespectful language, and in a tone that surely isn't designed to win friends?

I realize they must have been taught that at "Shill School" - but
what I want to know is WHY? Is it
that propaganda experts believe that is the most effective strategy to use on forums where only a small percentage of visitors is very knowledgeable about 9/11?

come on guys... it's USAma or OSSama ;-) that's what the feds call him. i think it's interesting to note the various spellings of his name and who uses which spelling under what context...

i must say, he makes a very convenient boogie man with his public relations rep Bergen and chief spokeswoman Amanpour

blog name change? any i just late noticing it? i liked the HUMan INTelligence events online spin off.. maybe cause it took me awhile to catch on. and i too think Ningen's blog is so great that i recommend it twice! ;-)

I just changed the name today. I never liked "Humint Events Online" that much, but felt weird about changing it until today.
