Osama Head Prized Trophy, No Tears for Killer

They got him and he is dead. At long last Osama met his match and the hitherto tough-talking mass murderer was shot hiding behind his screaming wife whom he shamelessly turned into a human shield. What a royal coward?

The lesson is clear. Behind the tough talk from fugitives resides the soft underbelly that epitomizes superlative cowardice. Professor Laurent Gbagbo hid behind his wife Simone before capture and now Osama tried to use his wife as a human shield. He may have lived large and sounded tough but that bravado melted when the time of reckoning came.

Conspiracy theorists will be working overdrive flogging the tired lines of imperialism and Osama being the handiwork of US itself. But the bottom line for those Kenyans who have bored the raw brunt of his his murderous rage is he met his match. Live by the sword, die by the very blade.

That Osama successfully played hide-and-seek for close to two decades evading capture does not subtract the fact that he was the ultimate evil. And back home one genociduer Felician Kabuga will be left scratching his head before he is smoked. He can run but cannot hide forever. No amount of fraud will buy his eternal freedom from corrupt Kenyans.

Osama is down and out and that leaves the world without one devil incarnate. At the risk of sounding sadistic, kudos to the executioners.

No regrets, really.

The timing of Osama's outing could never have been better. The collapse of middle-east dictatorships on the wings of a popular demand for alternatives that have little to do with radical islam couldnt have provided a more solid backdrop for Osama's outing.

Kudos to Obama and the US.

Good riddance after six years of having hidden himself in plain sight and among one of the most mistrusted institution whose name is not worth being mentioned, given the death toll of innocent lives.

The man whose name is no longer worth mentioning, could hide, walk, run, ride in mule caravans, hide in vegetable trucks, at times was known to dress up as a woman from mountain tribes of Afghanistan and Pakistan, pay millions for a safe passage into and out of what he thought was his save haven (palace with marble walls and floors) in Abbottad, but in the end, the long arm of swift but delayed international justice caught up with him when he least expected it.

How ironic that all the advance warning systems as well as four tier secure communication channels put in place by his trusted and sworn protectors in high places across the border from Afghanistan failed to rescue
his butt in the harrowing hellish minutes of his desperate need.

The man whose name is no longer worthy mentioning, had it coming and deserved it in the best posiible way when he was served a thin slice of a taste of his own longterm evil medicine.

The man in question may have been aware of the fact that 'the sword is more important than the shield' but he forgot a fact known to most warrior lords, that 'skill is more important than either'.

Furthermore, many of his type, the "tough-talking mass murderers" and "shameless cowards", are oblivious of the fact that a sword consists of a double edged blade and it cuts both ways when used against innocent victims or for evil purposes.

Thus, 'those who live by the sword die by the sword' or worse, fall on their own bloody sword while trying to cowardly flee from a more powerful and very determined opponent.

Good riddance is all that comes to mind, as we continue to remember hundreds of our fellow Kenyans who perished, and many more who were maimed for life during the terrorist attacks of August, 1998, as well as the orphans, widowers, widows and immidiate family members who lost their loved ones.

NEVER AGAIN. NEVER AGAIN.

I wouldn't be surprised that muderous cowards like Felician Kabuga are still living in exclusive neighbourhoods, among wealthy retired civil servants and business persons in cities like Nairobi, Kenya.

Well, what are Rwandan seasoned special ops waiting for? Permission from the powers that be or for the right moment.

There is no way an evil man like Felician Kabuga would have left Kenya in search for a btter alternative hiding nest in places like the Democratic Republic of Congo or some where else on the African continent.

Wow! Come to think of it, he could have been granted proctection in a place like Harare by the you know who, the iron man of Zimbabwe who was seen smiling at the Vatican while struggling to remain relevant in some unrestricted international circles.

Anyway, the clock continues to tick tock, while the bells still await to toll for somw of the world's very evil men like Felician Kabuga.

Osama died peacefully in his sleep many years ago due to his health complications but was deliberately 'kept alive' to justify the unnecessary trillion dollar wars.

Funnily, very few people are asking the questions.
1. How do a conclusive DNA id in under a day out in the field,
2.why ONLY the USA had access to the 'slain' most wanted man whom they 'killed', took away the 'body', and identified it.
3. Why was he quickly buried deep in the sea in unmarked grave...


Well, we all know those answers.
It was a global deception for reasons best known to the engineers. Unfortunately, so many people seem to fall for it.

Hail Obama and remember to donate to his re election fund.

Let there be no doubt in any one's mind that Felician Kabuga has been, is and continues to reside safely within Kenya, shielded from discovery by high ranking top level Government officials in the....side of the coalition

United States Of America is far from perfect in their intelligence gathering and analysis and conclusions they reach but 9/10 times they are not far off the mark. Over to you Kenyans, who knows whether the laxity and docility of the middle class to arise and take back the country from the hands of political elites is due to staying side by side next to harbored known wanted genocide criminal masterminds

The liar lied to himself.

We would have expected that, to RETIRE from active work does not amount to retiring from SERIOUS research. Sample this:

To conspire means to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act or to use such means to accomplish a lawful end.

From the above def. of conspiracy, it follows that, Osama is accused by the USA of conspiring to kill. If that is the case, then, isn't the USA and you members of the conspiracy club?

I wonder what that coward military doctor now thinks, the one who refused to report for his tour of duty claiming that Obama is "foreign born".
----------------------------------------------------------------------
BYT, many including yours truly had no clue that a "foreign birth" was the antithesis of a "natural birth".

Although the fact remains that only one "natural born" American man or woman can be elected from 308,745,538 or more Americans as president of one of the most powerful nation in the world.

While all other "foreign birthed or born" Americam citizens can try their luck by trying to emulate their fellow "American citizens" like Henry (Heinz Alfred) Kissinger, Madeleine (Marie Jana Korbelova) Albright, Albert Einstein, Arnold Schwarzenegger (thank goodness gracious, the man never bothered to change or shorten it to "Schwarz" or something), Monica Seles, among others who have found their niche (not to be confused with 'The American Dream') within the greater American society.

Wishing you all the best of luck in finding your niche or unique place, not just in America but in the world.

A real and true leader is one who will lead by his actions and not mere words only.now that Osama has been captured there is confidence that Obama can live up to his promises in fulfilling the mandate given to him by the American populace who were beginning to be swayed easily by the reality tv star Donald Trump and the loud mouthed republican Sarah Palin

Never wonder why such a leader commands respect in his own backyard during such tough times politically. It is because he walks the talk.lesson learnt here back home?

Moreno-Ocampo said "one of the biggest problems in Kenya is security," especially for witnesses.

For example, he said, Ruto was acquitted in a corruption trial "but five witnesses died" and of the other 16 witnesses, the few who appeared in court recanted their statements.

"So we are checking these type of circumstances," Moreno-Ocampo said.

There was no other way to end the Afghan war.What justification would there have been to call the troops home without them having achieved their target-to kill or capture Osama Bin Laden.Facing an election next year,one of the campaign promises by Obama was to end the twin wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.Well,Saddam had already been dealt with so it was fairly easy to leave the Iraqis on their own and take the troops home.Afghanistan was on a different level,how do you end the war without having achieved one of its main objectives?Stage managing the death of Osama who has been dead since December of 2001 was the only way out.Now wait for the announcement in a few days/months time.MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!THE US IS NOW PULLING OUT ITS FORCES FROM AFGHANISTAN.A double boost for Obama,he has kept his word about the troops and his approval ratings will shoot up for 'taking' out a long dead Osama.

Another LIE from the Ministry of Truth which has been swallowed by the GULLIBLE.

It is not about "conspiracy theorist," it is the same OLIGARCHY/LIARS telling us the real deal later when the SHEEPLE have swallowed the LIE:

Doubt? Sample this:

"The White House backed away Monday evening from key details in its narrative about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, including claims by senior U.S. officials that the Al Qaeda leader had a weapon and may have fired it during a gun battle with U.S. forces."

And, this:


"Officials also retreated from claims that one of bin Laden’s wives was killed in the raid and that bin Laden was using her as a human shield before she was shot by U.S. forces."

Source: "

White House modifies Osama bin Laden account."

What justice? Which court rendered that justice? You confuse law to mean justice. How lucky are you?

Do the masses get healing from lies or the truth?

Ati detached intellectuals? We do not understand the meaning of this word.

However, we know this. Only truth is beautiful. And, if seeking it makes one detached intellectual, let it be so.

Let us add this. In the final analysis, when we remove all the confusing and complex definitions of law, we find its true interpretation to be this question:

What is the TURTH?

It is in recognition of this, Courts of Justice (not courts of law) are designed to discover the TRUTH.

Thats why in the Courts of Justice, in the presence of the Almighty God, witnesses swear to Him and declare they will tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

It is in that spirit of seeking for the truth, we reject bullshit from wherever it may come from.

Protestors confront Raila over food prices
By Anderson Ojwang

Kisumu County

Wananchi waving placards to protest high cost of food and fuel attempted to disrupt a university graduation ceremony in Kisumu attended by Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

The nearly 1000 residents of Muhoroni constituency shouted "Njaa! Njaa!" (Hunger! Hunger!) at the ceremony at Great Lakes University of Kisumu. The placards bore messages that read in part: "Vision 2030 ni njaa. Bei ya unga ni juu. We are starving. We want kazi na unga."

However, the Prime Minister ignored the protestors and continued with his speech. He challenged the private sector to expand to meet the ever-increasing demand for employment opportunities.

Raila said the Government has only 500,000 employment opportunities that have already been filled and annual vacancies in the Government account for a paltry 25,000.

"The private sector should expand to meet the demand for employment. We want local investors to take advantage of the good economic climate and create jobs," he said.

http://www.standardmedia.co.ke/InsidePage.php?id=2000034449&cid=4&

Seems even molasses recycled useless and baseless speeches, vitendawili and football stories will not be enough antidote for starving luo's.

Mwarangethe,

Provide us the truth and evidence to support it that Osama's killing is a lie. Contradicting statements from CIA or whatever isn't a proof that Osama's killing is a conspiracy.

Strongly believing that your side of the story is the truth doesn't mean it's the truth.

And please answer my question and don't beat around the bush dealing with other issues and assume you have answered my question.

My only evidence is the media. Yes there has been contradicting information but in all of them what is common is that Osama was killed, similar to the story of the Bible, which had contradictions but all agreed that Jesus was killed and He resurrected. In the same way there were contradicting information of Kiambaa killings during PEV but what was common was that women and children were found dead in the burnt church. In all of them it doesn't mean that there was no killings or death despite the contradictions.

And I don't expect to come back and comment that you haven't answered my question. This time I don't want you to evade my question.

Mwarang'ethe said...

Stop running in circles. Answer a very simple question. We have been told this:

(a) Osama was armed.
(b) Osama was unharmed (even BBC is saying the same thing now without saying its a retraction from the first LIE.

Which if these do you believe is the TRUTH and why?

Also, if he was unharmed, why was he not captured alive and tried in a Court of Justice or, in other words, why was he denied due process?

You may also have noted that:

(a) he hid behind his wife.
(b) he did not hide behind his wife.

Which if these do you believe, and why?

xxx

And, something else you sheeple. If you are able to read, the AP in the first reports told us this:

"Osama bin Laden, the terror
mastermind killed by Navy SEALs in an intense firefight, was hunted
down based on information first gleaned years ago (emphasis added)
from detainees at secret CIA prison sites in Eastern Europe, officials disclosed Monday."

Note three things:

(a) intense firefight by a man they now say was not armed.

(b) more importantly, they justify SECRET PRISONS for without them, the "the terror mastermind" would still be free.

(c) they justify TORTURE which goes on in these secret prisons.

And, just to jog your memory a bit, we may ask, didn't we have another "terror mastermind" Khalid Sheikh Mohammed who, we are told, confessed to being the "mastermind of 9/11 after he was water boarded over 180 times?

Even a lot of barbarians served in the Roman Army which was the best those days. Americans fight and kill to protect their monopolies. What do Kenyans fight, kill and die for?

So, we see nothing to yell about mercanaries.

xxx

However, the Prime Minister ... challenged the private sector to expand to meet the ever-increasing demand for employment opportunities.

xxxx

Raila is not serious at all. He is asking private sector to create jobs when the government he is part of is CONFISCATING the private sector's money? Sample this conversation we had a couple of days ago:

"As concerns the old VAT refunds, can we get someone at KRA who will take let us say Kes 5000 from those funds and thereby, facilitate the refunds immidiately?"

NB: We are willing to BRIBE to get back our money for reinvestment in food production.

This is the response we got:

"I am looking. But right now, the country is having refund issues. As you know treasury is hard pressed to provide monies for hunger relief alongside other burdens. It is hard, but we are on it."

So, if this is the situation, what is Raila talking about?

My fellow Kumekuchan, as it were, one thing I learned during my formative years with MEU was that the most fundamental and straightforward way of winning with people of your calibre is to give them a compliment - a sincere and meaningful word of affirmation.

If you want others to feel like a million bucks, you've got to master this elementary skill.

And it's essential that you learn to give your compliments in front of others (fellow Kumekuchans) as well as one-on-one.

Why? Because that private compliment turned public, instantly and dramatically increases in value.

And for that, I will always value your opinions and contributions on Kumekucha regardless of whether I agree and disagree with the contextual aspect of their delivery.

In most parts of my home region, the term all "people from my village" is not legally protected, whereas the the title of intellectual can be used by only those who have met specified professional requirements.

The title "our village people" is not even protected by village law, provincial law, national law, or international law.

However, the title of intellectual is not protected in some other villages, where different villages use their own criteria to define an intellectual in their midst.

Although there are many intellectuals with undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in our villages, anyone can refer to him- or herself as an intellectual without any qualifications.

In other words, a person can legally describe themselves as an intellectual and obtain qualifications such as a degree by mail or online from a non-accredited institution.

Nonetheless, it is recognized that intellectuals have an increasingly important role to play in various villages as well as on various blogs around the world.

Give credit where its due, in the case to all the intellectuals in our midst.

I love Bob Marley's music, never cared about any lyrics by Peter Tosh and company.

What did Bob Marley and Peter Tosh do for their own people beside perpetrating a perpetual cycle of a culture of drug addiction and illusionary masks of wannabe revolutionaries?

How true that "Ignorance is bliss", while "Little knowledge is more dangerous."

There are some who keep quoting Bob Marley's lyrics yet still can't fathom what the Buffalo Soldiers went through while fighting for their very survival in hostile territory?

The Buffalo Soldiers doomed if they did, and they were doomed if they didn't perform their combat assignments at the time.

Guess, the distinguished Tuskegee Airmen (ground crews and pilots) who fought in World War II, were "Buffalo Airmen" as well, given the Jim Crow laws that racially segregated the American military?

Hard words break no bones, and that's why unconditional forgiveness in memory of the real "MM", Mark Matthews, the last of his kind, the last of his breed, the lasta Buffalo Soldier who passed away on September 6, 2005, at the age of 111 years.

And all the Tuskegee Airmen on whose shoulders many continue to stand, and on whose wings many continue to fly in various capacities.

"They were be we were. They were so we could be. They were so we could continue be for generations to come."

RIP.

OK. Admittedly my posts are mostly not in supplication and worship of the feckless bumpkin. In fact, the one that was pulled down was talking about the current food protest by Muhoroni residents and flashing back to what happened when Jomo Kenyatta was in Kisumu at some function or other dedicating a new hospital. Someone was saying how people are hungry and should be fed. And i was just arguing that history can repeat itself as a farce.
But that's OK to dump posts mister moderator. Your blog. Your prerrogative. Thank you.

Dale is one of the finest thinkers we have today.

We add this. One of the greatest historians, Gibbons, teaches us this:

"The loss or desolation of the provinces (3rd world today) from the ocean to the Alps, impaired the glory and greatness of Rome; HER INTERNAL PROSPERITY was IRRETRIEVABLY DESTROYED by the SEPARATION of AFRICA."

He continues to teach that:

"The rapacious Vandals confiscated the patrimonial estates of senators (today, foreign /Western "investors"), and intercepted the regular subsidies which relieved the poverty, and encouraged the idleness of the plebians ... and the province (Africa),

Hear this:

so long cultivated FOR THEIR USE by INDUSTRIOUS and OBEDIENT SUBJECTS, was ARMED against them (Rome) by an ambitious Barbarian."

Does that sound like 2011? Yes, but, that was over 1500 years ago.

In other words, the relationship between African/s and New/Rome remains as it was over 1500 years ago.

As the loss of Africa destroyed Rome/West, so, would be real freedom (loss of Africa) of Africans in 2011.

Very unfortunately, most of us know only what CNN, BBC and other propaganda outlets tell us.

Armed to the teeth with that little useless knowledge about our history, and our real situation, we walk very proud of our service to the Empire.

It is so pathetic that, when you try to tell your fellow Africans the real deal distilled from irrefutable evidence of history, they see you as the enemy and their enemies as their friends.

How sad Lord!

Did Osama become complacent due to severe pyschological isolation and agonizing longterm detachment from his ground troops and network of loyal warriors in various battle zones?

Or did he suffer a total nervous collapse, a situation that ended up forcing him into seclusion far away from Afghanistan?

Were his protectors aware of his diminished status as a leader who was revered by many of his own and reviled by the rest of the rest of world?

What did his hosts and protectors stand to gain by harbouring one of the most wanted furgitive with a twenty-five million reward on his head, dead or alive?

Nevertheless, Christiane Amanpour was right on to something but was by many ignored at the time, although the lastest events at Abbottabad have proved her right for another time.

She's quoted as having said that, she "talked with a woman, who told her that Osama bin Laden was no longer living or hiding in the mountainous region of Waziristan but was being sheltered in a villa located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region by loyal Pathan hosts."

Never ever laugh at nor celebrate your enemy's tragic downfall however much you may have hated him/her.

Case in point, what are the chances a nemesis and an archnemesis would get what was due to them within several months apart in 2011?

Osama bin Laden had a ongoing just resentment against Hosni Mubarak to the point where he couldn't avert the malignant nemesis of death.

While Hosni Mubarak had vowed to crash Osama bin Laden and his people to the point where he ended up being so blinded by vengeful power and consequently succumbed to his arrogance.

If you would know what is in your best interest.

If you could have some wisdom. Sample this:

Recently, there was a royal wedding in Sverige. In one of the interviews, the guy said he has ben going thru an educational process. One of the subjects he mentioned was HISTORY. You can hear the guy here:

http://is.gd/9PJsDd

So,

(a) did your mother/family teach you history? The answer is obvious. No. They told you, go to school and you will get a nice job.

(b) why do you think royals are taught history and not the politicians?

And, why not teach them journalism, tourism management, engineering, etc

And, even better, why don't they tell the royals to sit infront of TV as you do and learn?

(c) why are royals taugh history at home and not Ivy League of FOOLS?

Anyway, enough of history.

Jana, we wrote this:

"Conquered states ... can be held by the conqueror in three different ways.

(a) The first is to ruin them,

(b) the second for the conqueror to go and reside there in person and,

(c) the third is to allow them to continue to live under their own laws, subject to a regular tribute, and to create in them a government of the few who will keep the country friendly to the conqueror." – Niccolo Machiavelli.

Now, in the 2007 OPIUM session, some of you elected Kibaki, others Raila and some Kalonzo.

Do you wanna see how they ensure TRIBUTE is paid as per (c)? Read here:

http://is.gd/bOYiRw

Anyway, you:

(a) keep on parading dogs and soldiers on Uhuru day.

(b) Even better, make sure you serve DILIGENTLY in the Babylonian military to ensure the TRIBUTE is collected from your mother's empty pocket.

(c) make sure you get your OPIUM CARD for 2012 OPIUM SESSION.

When you have done all this, all will be well.

Go back and watch TV.

Since you hae no clue, what all this is all about is the Pakistani nuclear technology.

In other words, using Osama as the pretext, the "War on Terror" will now be expanded into Pakistan properly.

As usual, the IDIOTS do not understand such geopolitical calculations for all they know is what Dear Leaders says on TV and what STATE miseducation told them.

Should you wake up from your SLUMBER induced by STATE miseducation and too much TV watching of the Dear Leader, please, look for a paper called:

The Geographical Pivot of History, by H.J. Mackinder. Published in April, 1904 in the The Geographical Journal Vol. 23. No. 4.

NB: Check when it was written, 1904. All what you see was decided a 100 years ago, but, the Dear Leader will never tell u this.

NB: Stop seeing the world in short term reality dude. It does not work that way unless your are foolish enough to think so.

Obama has already said it was a covert mission. Osama was actually tracked down using a courier so it made sense to use a different approach to break into his fortress. Talk about hiding in plain sight

If you start flying drone planes in the middle of the night don't you it can be rather obvious you are about to be raided especially if you have informants in the Pakistani intelligence services who would simply phone ahead and confirm they are not aware of any of their planes operating in the area so you had better get out before you are trapped

The Killing Fields of Turkana are Ancient as the Blue Nile.

Lest we forget, what became of the old adage, 'A forewarned opponent is [always] forearmed'?

The Turkana have known very well that when their sworn enemies from across are bound to come over and kill Turkanas as right of passage to prove their silly notions of manhood once the circumcision rites are over and done with.

So why don't the Turkana arm themselves, be on full alert and strike back harder whenever their sworn ancient enemies venture across from the other side in search of killing the innocent Turkana?

So far, politicians like John Munyes have been sleeping on duty and wasting valuable time participating in worthless rallies around the country, while his own people and constituents are massacred as if they were wild birds or herds of antelopes in their own backyard of North Turkana.

Fight fire with more constructive fire power, if the current government can't guarantee adequate security for its ordinary citizens living in the North Turkana region.

The bloodletting history has been going for decades, so why don't they find a permanent solution that extends beyond the impotent police post, arming the local residents or creating a people's militia to defend that particular region of Kenya?

One of the appropriate solutions would be to establish a permanent basecamp with a well equiped rapid reponse paramilitary unit (RRPU) to counter the cyclical murderous incursions into Kenyan territory.

Let them do the needful and answer later to the powers that be, as in It was justified as an act of national self-defense at a crucial time when the lives of Kenyan citizens and personnel were in harm's way.

On the other hand, what became of the so called patriotic politicians and chest thumpers who are known to shout out loud about Kenya's sovereignty when it suits them well?

Kwani our Turkana people and other marginalized Kenyans are not within or part of that sovereignty?

John Munyes and company, should wake up and get your prioties straight, because so many of them have grown up watching similar senseless killings of their fellow Turkana take place in the name of a very primitive and barbaric sport, the "rite of passage" which is carried out against the Turkana people just because they (Turkana) don't perform the same circumcision rites as many of their neighbours from within Kenya and across Kenyan national borders.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! STOP THE KILLINGS INNOCENT KENYAN CITIZENS!.

The embarrassed Pakistani military generals were caught with their starched pants hanging on the clothesline, not once but twice.

First of all, they have been so embarrassed and lost face over the fact some elements within the Pakistani military and intellegence service knew all along that Osama bin Laden and other fugitives on the run were hiding in plain sight and in very well protected areas for the last six years.

Then along came the Navy Seals who sealed the deal on Pakistani soil, allowing the the rest of the world to soon figure out that the most wanted fugitive in the world had been granted a safe haven not far from sensitive military installations, institutions and neighbourhood that's inhabited by the military top brass, both active and retired personnel.

And, when all the dust had settled, it took the military over two and half hours to figure out what was happening and mount a some type of face saving response.

The unwelcomed incident will give rise to movies similar to 'Black Hawk Down' and others entitled, 'Raid On Abbottabad' or 'The Abbottabad Masion' or 'Ten Year Hunt' or 'Golden Bullet' or 'Just Deserts'.

Some Kenyans never cease to amaze. They always claim to be experts in the Queen's language, but their "natural instinct" for the same has never put their books on the bestsellers lists around the globe.

Maybe, that's one of the main reasons my former English teachers from lower school, middle school, intermediate school and upper school have yet to publish a simple novel or textbook after so many years wasted on harassing and terrorizing many of their students with the gestapo type of grammer checks, police-marking in bright colours and what else there was to hold against students.

And so, we all continue to get even by haunting them with our "poor (e)nglish (g)rammar" while at the same time taunting the lesser demons in our former teachers as to why and when "the experts, protectors, purveyors and 'little Brits' of the Queen's language will ever dare compete against or even unseat the likes of Joanne "Jo" Rowling (the biggest failure I knew), a one time teacher of English as a foreign language who has sold more than 400 million copies of her books.

The Obama administration and the corporate media are concocting an ever-more elaborate and spectacular theater around the “heroic” murder of the CIA intelligence myth/CIA asset Osama bin Laden. Not content to simply to exploit the 9/11 atrocity for political gain, the administration is heaping new layers of lie and cover-up to the original crime.

The growing cover-up

The desperation is palpable. Just days since the “big announcement”, Obama administration officials have already been forced to backpedal, issuing multiple corrections, adding to the confusion over the location of the killing, whether bin Laden was armed or unarmed, whether there was a “fire fight”, if an alleged wife was involved, the burial at sea, whether to release “graphic photos”, etc. The mainstream corporate media—following approved CIA/White House narratives—is spewing and regurgitating a tidal wave of red herrings that add to the inconsistencies.


“As the alleged body has been dumped into the ocean, nothing remains but the word of the US government, which lied about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction and al Qaeda connections, about yellowcake, about Iranian nukes, and, according to thousands of experts, about 9/11. Suddenly the government is telling us the truth about bin Laden’s death? If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I’ll let you have for a good price.”





To borrow from the lexicon of world planner Zbigniew Brzezinski, 9/11 was a successful attack “on the order of Pearl Harbor” that “united” the American people behind an “imperial mobilization”—the “war on terrorism” for oil. With 9/11, the masses fully supported nearly a decade of war, atrocities, subversion, and unprecedented government criminality.

The militant and unquestioning public embrace of “war on terrorism” lies underscores how that the 9/11 has succeeded beyond the wildest dreams of the Anglo-American war criminals who orchestrated it.


The 9/11 “shock effect” remains fully potent, as evidenced by the frenzy, euphoria, and stomach-turning jubilation of crowds of Americans joining in celebration orgies over a fictional murder of the fictional Osama bin Laden, a fictional revenge. Even the “intellectuals” and “experts” are treating this charade as if it is real. Corporate media headlines have declared that “the world has changed”, and the masses love it.

The post-9/11 era has spawned an entire generation of vicious and ignorant drones, whose moral compass has been shaped by war, lies, violent entertainment, and brainwashing. The future American police state will be built upon this new culture of thuggery. This is “Obama’s Animal Farm”.

To Obama, this is “what makes America great”.

Rescripting reality

In Orwellian fashion, the legend of the death of Bin Laden changes nothing in reality, but turns the mass perception of this reality upside down.

Suddenly, an unpopular Obama and his failing presidency are recast, in true Bush/Cheney fashion, as a heroic—and now successful— “war president”. He is now Obama the 9/11 avenger, protector of the American people, and the great military master.

This burnished new image, which is preposterous as the one given to George W. Bush during his reign of terror, grants Obama his own new “political capital”. Two years of flummoxing and failure, wiped out. Attacks from all sides, stopped. Obama has a political weapon to fend off attacks from the right-wing. They can no longer attack Obama for being weak on foreign policy. At the same time, Obama’s corporate liberals (who care only about gaining political points on the Republicans) can return to deluding themselves about Obama’s populism, appeal and effectiveness, despite two years of absolute failure and purposely broken campaign promises. With one stroke, Obama is being handed the 2012 election.

Suddenly, Obama is not only just as “great” as Bush, but an even “cooler customer”, who singlehandedly ordered and carried out a covert operation that Bush/Cheney could not.

Osama is gone, Bouazizi lives on. Which will win? Bouazizi of course!

For a new page as well as a brand new book is being written by strong young Arabs who want to become free, well educated citizens of democratic nations.

The Arab people deserve the respect that has been denied to them for decades by tyrannical regimes and their hardline sponsors in the west.

The death of Osama bin Laden-that leader of religious extremism-adds to the fall of Tunisian and Egyptian regimes, and is an advent of the fall of those in Libya and Yemen.

In the final analysis of the aftermath at Abottabad the biggest losers and winners respectively from the Bin Laden assassination whether real or a cover up are:-

1) the ideology of radical Islam which is considered the backbone of the so called war on terrorism

2) the people of Pakistan who courtesy of their security agencies have been made to look embarrassed with their trousers down

As someone said Osama is gone but terrorism still lives on. the whole ideology of terrorism did not start with him neither will it end with him.

Conspiracy theorists can chase ghosts in every shadow about the manufacturing of Bin Laden by the American Capitalist conglomerate in order to oil the wheels of war which is financed by the dollars pumped back into US economy but as usual the simple questions will always remain unanswered by the brain credentials-in particular what about the numerous faceless victims? what is life going to be like for them now?

America has done the world a favour on this one and we will forever be in their debt even as the rest of the nations around the world continue to stand firm against extremist murders who are unable to convince anyone of their persuasion simply using their words but instead chose to blow up themselves and the closest bystanders in a cowardly way of utilizing fear as a tool for including people in their jihad or army of terror

You ask about victims? Let us see the answer to that question then.

Terrorism is nothing, but, criminal law stuff and there is nothing special about it. So, how does this law deal with criminal liability?

It is a question of causation. In other words, did the defendant's conduct/omission cause the harm/damage to the victims?

When we apply factual causation principle, we apply as the starting point, the BUT FOR test.

According to what you write, you accept the role of the USA in the creation, funding of this "organisation." The only question to you is, what about the victims. Fine.

We just need to ask, BUT FOR the USA's creation, funding and direction of "Al Qaeda" would have the "Al Qaeda" or Osama, been able to kill/maim the victims?

The answer would be resounding no. This being the case, you now know who ought to be answerable for these crimes.

And, even if we had other players and therefore, invoked the legal causation, we would still come to the same conclusion.

So, fool yourself as much as you want, but, the truth shall remain.

We assume truth is SACRED to you. If not, then, you have descended below the level humanity to that of a brute wild animal.

It's already Monday aternoon 1:10 PM and there should have been a new post since morning.

BTW, the prime minster's position (glorified vice presidency) was created to quell havoc and appease a certain segment of the population.

Don't you think it's time the duplicitous position was done away since it has served its purpose intended in the aftermath of '07/'08-PEV?

Why should a poor country like kenya continue to waste precious resources on funding such a political position when the same resources could have been utilized elsewhere or where they are needed most?

Who really needs a prime minister once the senators and governors have been elected after 2012?

Unless there is still an expectation and fear of massive vote rigging by PNU's and ODM's stalwarts in the coming general elections of 2012.

What have been the pros and cons of having the prime ministership in the last four years?

Has anything changed for the greater common good or for the real benefit of the whole cuntry besides the usual negative ethnic waxing and wrangling from the two major ethnicities in Kenya?

- lack rural access roads,
-lakc transportation,

- lack modern medical facilities,
- women give birth in very unsanitary conditions,
- schools are 100% worse than cow sheds, horse barns, dog houses and pig stalls in the west, just google and compare.
- provincial towns and districts trading posts still resemble the early 1900s colonial base camps.
- unemployment galore,
- preventable diseases galore,
- cyclical hunger galore,
- lack of basic foods galore,
- politics is the prized industry in Nairobi, in little towns and in the all villages of Kenya,
- zero industries beyond the confines of Nairobi or Mombasa,

ahahhahah, ehehehe, Juma is just another HIGH PRIEST.

In his recent interview, promoting his new book, he said this:

"It is the responsibility of an African president to modernise the economy and that means essentially starting with the modernisation of agriculture."

What Juma cannot tell you, and he cannot because, he is a BREAD FED SCHOLAR, is this.

If you analyse the Congressional Hearings on the Bretton Woods agreement, you will see a clear fear by the Americans that, the Latin American and African farmers would undersell American farmers. By so doing, they would displace the American agri. exports.

It is from this fear, the limited discussions on agriculture were how the WB and IMF could be used to benefit the American agri. exports to 3rd world.

Hear their own words. The Ass. Sec. of State Clayton observed this as apertains to WB.

He said, the WB lending program:

"would certainly be a very good one for the AGRICULTURAL exports, because as you help develop these countries, help develop their resources (Read, raw materials), and help them develop industrially, you will SHIFT their economy somewhat from an AGRICULTURAL ECONOMY to an industrial economy, so that I think in the end you would CREATE MORE MARKET for your AGRICULTURAL products..."

Translated: The WB,IMF lending was to to be accompanied by growing food deficit and hence, higher import dependency.

Has this been realised? Let us hear from Juma where he says:

"He estimates that while food production has grown globally by 145% over the past 40 years, African food production has fallen by 10% since 1960, which he attributes to low investment."

Source: http://is.gd/K9ocpv

Bingo, just as planned. And, now, without challenging the framework within which this has been achieved, Juma tells us that, we can improve agriculture in Africa.

So, how does he propose we improve agriculture?

"The professor's blueprint calls for the expansion of basic infrastructure, including new road, irrigation and energy schemes."

Fine prof Juma.

However, can you tell us, how will Africans do that, when they do not have monetary sovereignty which was usurped by the WB, IMF and associated satanic entities?

Well, being a BREAD FED SCHOLAR, he cannot mention such stuff because, the next day, he will be looking for a job.

Simply, the modern university is not devoted to the truth, quite the opposite. So, do not give us shit from so called professors. We know how to read and we can do our own research.

Anyway, remember this:

You mean IRREFUTABLE FACTS like this?

"Dozens of African migrants were left to die in the Mediterranean after a number of European military units apparently ignored their cries for help, the Guardian has learned. Two of the nine survivors claim this included a Nato ship."

Your friends who are defending civilians, in Libya, by throwing missiles at them, cannot even abide by one of the most humane and most ancient law of maritime law, i.e. a ship captain, is obligated by the common law and common humanity and the Divine Law, to deviate from the appointed course of his ship so as to rescue life at sea.

mmmmm, they cannot even bother to rescue women and children:

"... boat carrying 72 passengers, including several women, young children and political refugees, ran into trouble in late March after leaving Tripoli for the Italian island of Lampedusa. Despite alarms being raised with the Italian coastguard and the boat making contact with a military helicopter and a warship, no rescue effort was attempted.

All but 11 of those on board died from thirst and hunger after their vessel was left to drift in open waters for 16 days."

Mwarang'ethe said....

The key issue here is fear of underselling American farmers by a SHIFT in the economies of the Latin and African farmers from agrarian based economies to industrial manufacturing economies. higher food import dependency in favour of the western world is currently the status quo because Kenyans have done a very good job of perfecting the annual famine cycle not only in the NorthEastern parts of the country but even parts of the Rift Valley which is supposed to be our breadbasket


Therefore Juma is right about underinvestment being one of the main causes for a drop in African food production because Kenya has refused to utilise to farm in their dry and arid areas as if its impossible to do so

If IMF monetary policy plays any role at all in this matter it boils down to mismanagement of funds given for the purpose of building capacity in agriculture. Manage whatever little you have well and you not only reverse the economy in less than 22 years(forget vision2030) but you also improve agriculture sector which currently maximises on tea coffee and flowers. A good example is the lack of abattoirs in NE part of Kenya which is a good farm scheme for such a dry area.

When the Irish were perishing in their millions due to starvation, grain, meat, butter and cheese were carted away for EXPORTATION along the roads lined with the starving and past trenches into which the dead were piled.

Why so Sir? Simple. These exports of food by the Irish people there was no return or very little return, but, a TRIBUTE.

The Irish exported food as a TRIBUTE. So, are our exports.

And, what did the IMPERIAL ECONOMISTS say then? They said, "the imprudence of the Irish peasants."

What do we hear today? The "imprudence of the Africans."

Where is that satanic like sound coming from? From our own intellectuals like Prof. Juma and bloggers like you.

What did the IMPERIAL ECONOMISTS do in Ireland? They introduced potato to improve the conditions of the poor. What was the result of this experiment?

The consequence was rise in RENT and a lowering of WAGES. When this was combined with potato blight, and frequent famine, there was only way for a people who were forced to live very poorly. That next step was mass starvation.

So, what has Juma learnt from the Irish problem? Nothing, for he seems not to have bothered to study it.

Above all. Leave here today with this:

(a) Orthodox economics is a CLASS ECONOMICS of the OWNERS of DEBT.

So, Juma and his friends, are nothing, but, the mnyaparas of the owners of debt. Thats why, he knows nothing about Irish problem and what it teaches us.

(b) It is better to listen to those who have fetched from the stars the cornupia that suckled Jupiter instead of those who empty it in the rivers and fire for the fear of glut.

Throwing money at a problem never solves the underlying issues but proper management is the solution.Isn't that how the Irish farmers managed to regain their profitability while still growing the potato to feed their starving masses?

Every problem requires a different solution but without right management people will expertly fail to be prudent no matter how much money they have. Isn't that why you as an accountant balance the books for your cosmetics factory workshop at the end of every month/quater/year?

The hymn refers to the "New Jerusalem", the utopia of heaven from Christian mythology coming to England.(not UK) The song is about Jesus coming to built New Jerusalem (according to book of revelation in the bible) in England's green and pleasant land.

Dr. Dambisa Moyo's Dead Aid: Why Aid is Not Working and How There is A Better Way For Africa (2009),

xxx

Where did Dambisa Moyo get the WEIRD idea that, AID has/was not working?

Aid has worked, just as IS/WAS INTENDED. Where did she go to school by the way? Who did she work for?

Now, if you look at the term "AID", etymologically, it is used today to mean, to help, assist, afford support or relief.

However, in FEUDAL LAW, it meant customary payment by a VASSAL or TENANT to his LORD.

In other words, AID as used in practical sense today, is FEUDATORY which imposes vassalage on 3rd world countries in the form of contractual DEBT services which rep. MORTAGAGES on thei future balance of payment etc.

So, if this is the fact, what does she mean when she says aid has not worked? Talk of brainwash education.

So, what does she propose African do? Oh, yes, just like the other Trojan horse called Juma, she proposes we go to the money market and incur more DEBTS from the SAME BOSS.

mmmmm, remember this:

(a) Orthodox economics is a CLASS ECONOMICS of the OWNERS of DEBT.

In other words, you are asking cattle herders to develop maritime insurance. How Sir?

Rantings of an intellectually deranged blogger. Man I wonder what you for a living in EU-US for your lurking expertise is phenomenal.

As for cattle herders and maritime insurance well kweli nyani haoni kundule. Please stop pretending to be an expert of everything: land/wealth/money/law/terrorism/Bob Marley/politics and even cosmetics.

You are so easily EXCITABLE hitting the keyboard with handy e-reference which you shamelessly quote when warranted but deride when convenient. Imagine no idea original and you live on Kumekucha to expand ego, period.

AND WHERE DID U SCHOOL?Maybe I can ask for refund on your behalf. You are STUPIDLY ARROGANT.

Mwarangethe,

I have been reading comments here without commenting. I think you need to change your attitude.

I'm seeing a case where a blogger will copy and paste one of your post that you did long ago and have forgotten, and you'll disagree with that blogger and call him names such as "Idiot", "Ivy League Fool" e.t.c.

From your comment its as if everybody is wrong, whether they disagree or concur with you apart from you.

High time we left Osama bin Laden rest in peace, wherever his soul went after his body was lowered into the deep seas.

I was watching a documentary where some senior elements in the Sudanese government took all of his construction equipment, homes, two huge mechanized farms and twenty million dollars he had in a Khartoum bank and appropriated all the assets for their own personal use.

My point is that, the man was not a saint by any world standards but there are thousands of people who benefited from him, used him for all it's worth, sheltered him so they could get access to whatever it was they wanted at the time.

That's why I wasn't surprised that there was an established network within Pakistan and beyond that helped shelter Osama at a high premium cost.

I will not be surprised if sooner or later someone or some group of senior Pakistani military officers, or intellegince agents, claim the twenty-five million dollar bounty that have been issued against Osama's head, dead or alive.

So many of these people didn't have the courage to capture or kill Osama, so they let outsiders do the job for them as long as they were promised they could collect the prize money after the fact.

Osama had become a huge industry that was exploited by many terrorist groups as well as various governments, institutions and organizations around the world.

Why are we not surprised that Osama never dared lift a figure against Israel? He knew better, not to mess with hornets' nest.

Time will tell whether global terrorism died with Osama or whether we are going to enter into a different phase that will be perpetuated by some demented fanatics who hope to take over the vacancy and the leadership vacuum in the wake of Osama's demise.

Kenya paid a deadly price in August of 1998, so let's hope that some of the crazy headless chickens that have sneaked over to Al Shabaab will not come back to Kenya to roost under any pretext.

Osama bin Laden lived by sword and died by the sword, unfortunately, he used the sword against so many innocent people around the world for all the wrong reasons.

Here is the answer then:

"The so-called modern education, with all its defects, however, does others so much more good than it does the Negro, because it has been worked out in conformity to the needs of those who have enslaved and oppressed weaker peoples.

For example, the philosophy and ethics resulting from our educational system have justified slavery, PEONAGE, segregation, and lynching. The oppressor has the right to exploit, to handicap, and to kill the oppressed.

Negroes daily educated in the tenets of such a religion of the strong have accepted the status of the weak as divinely ordained,...

No systematic effort toward change has been possible, for, taught the same economics, history, philosophy, literature and religion which have established the present code of morals, the Negro's mind has been brought under the control of his oppressor.

The problem of holding the Negro down, therefore, is easily solved.

When you control a man's thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his "proper place" and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary."

We borrow very GRATEFULLY that correct diagnosis from Dr. Carter G Woodson, the author of the Mis - Education of the Negro, 1933.

In simple words, the mis - educated Africans like Prof Juma and Dr Moyo who cannot understand the difference between, CAUSE and EFFECT are some of the greatest menace.

NB: We noted before that, orthodox economics is economics (religion of slave masters) of the OWNERS of DEBT.

You can see Dr Carter used the word PEONAGE as part of modern education principle.

Therein, you can see the modern African chiefs such as Prof. Juma and Dr. Moyo selling Africans into slavery just like the old ones.

The only difference is that, they sell you slavery as hot cake thru CNN, BBC and such satanic mouth pieces. Different means, same ends.

Anyway, let us continue enjoying this:

Build your penitentiary, we build your schools,

Brainwash education to make us the fools.

Here comes the conman (Juma, Moyo)

Coming with his con plan (PEONAGE)

@Mwarang'ethe,

Please Learn to discern the difference between un-armed and un-harmed kapish!

Before I vanish into cyber space, I have a simple swali, were you present at Osama's assasination? or you read about the events from the Dailies and the net like the rest of us.

@Chris,
What's the difference between running a restaurant and managing a restaurant kitchen?

Just ask Wang'ombe what became of his start-up restaurant that was situated in one of the best locations along the canal that's frequented by a steady traffic of seasoned food lovers of modern cuisine.

And why the poor fella blew the golden mining opportunity?

The place ("Gourd" or "Calabash") used to serve a minimum of fifty clients during lunch hours, many more in the evening hours, and it was real magnet on weekends, open from 8:30 am to 11:00 pm on Stardays and Sundays.

Unfortunately, something seems to have kept him away from being on location and enteracting with the guests who really loved the eatery.

Long story short, another restaurant owner has taken over premises and now serves experimental fusion cuisine to a lesser number of clients.

Anyway, if you continue building on what's already in place, they (Kumekuchans and "outsiders") will come and hang around within the castle's walls; but if you continue to neglect, dismantle or destroy whatever that is left of the castle, many Kumekuchans, "outsiders" and frequent observers will fly without parachuting in for a stopover or pitstop.

Keep the place alive and make necessary improvements.
