Dick Cheney: Osama Bin Laden Not Behind 911

Sultan Hijazi | Terminal X Desk
With each new day passing by, many more revelations are coming to the forefront as to why Raymond Davis was caught with sensitive equipment and photographs. The first mainstream medium to establish Davis as CIA was the UK’s Guardian. The American press was requested by officials at Langley not to make mention of this fact days before the Guardian’s publication, as there were “fears for Davis’ life”.

However, now that the British print media had revealed the story, there were adequate reasons and ground for their American counterparts to do so too. Whenceforth Reuters, the NY Times and the Washington Post also published this story, establishing once and for all around the globe that when it comes to national security, Pakistanis do not fire off “conspiracy theories”, there really is something sinister going on.

Intelligence agencies of each country have their own motives for surveillance and espionage around the world in various locations, sometimes even in countries who are “friends” and “allies”. In the case of the CIA, this is one intelligence agency which is even a more complex web than Israel’s Mossad. Whereas the latter specializes in covert operations and assassinations, the CIA deals in global drug-trade, black ops and “fraudulent diplomacy”, as can be evident from the Davis case.

On August 18, 2010, Barack Obama had signed an Executive Order (#13550) for the establishment of a “Pakistan and Afghanistan Support Office”. It states:

Sec. 2. Purpose of the Temporary Organization. The purpose of the PASO
shall be to perform the specific project of supporting executive departments and agencies in strengthening the governments in Afghanistan and Pakistan, enhancing the capacity of those governments to resist extremists, and maintaining an effective U.S. diplomatic presence in both countries.

Sec. 3. Functions of the Temporary Organization. In carrying out the purpose set forth in section 2, the PASO shall:
(a) support executive departments and agencies in efforts to enhance civilian control and stable constitutional government in Pakistan

By “enhancing civilian control”, the Executive Order refers to more funding for the Intelligence Bureau under Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik for upgrading of the apparatus it possesses in an attempt to sideline it and eventually supersede the Inter-Services Intelligence headed by a serving Lieutenant-General. “Maintaining an effective US diplomatic presence” is akin to strengthening the presence of undercover intelligence operatives of the CIA, Xe LLC and Special Taskforce 373 in the US Embassy Islamabad, which is a shadowy dystopian empire in itself.

Speaking to Terminal X on condition of anonymity, a senior intelligence official confirms that the main purpose of the US Embassy is to fortify the IB under the Ministry of Interior in Pakistan and make it the most powerful Pakistani intelligence agency, with the obvious notion that it will receive directives directly from the Pentagon.

“For about three years now, there have been constant attempts to bring the ISI under civilian control. Since that judgment received extensive backfiring from top brass of the Pakistan armed forces, the strategists at the Obama administration have been looking for alternative ways of making their civilian installment in Pakistan a rigid one”, he continued.

“And the primary objective for that is a fully-optimized civilian intelligence agency with handpicked officers who will not even take a minute to nod to the directives they receive”

While discussing the issue of Raymond Davis, several facts and certain public assumptions were confirmed. “He would not be in jail now were it not for the ISI”, the official informed “Do you really expect the police to be so bold and lock him up? He was being pursued by the ISI before the unfortunate incidents happened, and he is under their constant surveillance as we speak. There were reports that Davis will be killed and disposed by his recruiters because of the vital and extremely sensitive cache of classified information he has with him. He is our asset now”

This adds weight to the claims that just yesterday, the Lahore High Court had delivered a request to the ISI for picking up the Davis case as the police officials were not providing required investigative assistance. Police officials have declined to comment on this.


In March 1974, chief Pakistani nuclear engineer Munir Ahmad Khan had summoned a meeting of leading atomic scientists to initiate work on the atomic bomb. Pakistan’s Atomic Energy Commission had completed the final blueprints for nuclear weapons by 1977.

News reached Langley from where several black-ops agents posing as “diplomats” were planted inside the US Embassy in Islamabad. In 1979, a group of these self-professed “diplomats” was found involved in suspicious activities. Some of them would leave for areas around Kahuta. One of the CIA operatives from the Embassy was picked up in isolation, where he confessed to their actual mission. The ISI’s counterintelligence turned the operative into a double-agent, Codenamed ‘Star’. His leads got the agencies right on target and the whole group of CIA operatives were arrested. This was a major bust. In the following days, all their details were made public and they were sent back to the US only after they had revealed sufficient information. One of the declassified leads was a coordinated attack at Kahuta by these stingers.

Public sentiment back then also was laced with anti-Americanism, which resulted in a massive civilian outburst of anger and the US Embassy Islamabad was attacked on the 21st of November, 1979.

Subsequently, after this major bust, it was a few years later that on March 11 1983, Munir Ahmad Khan and the PAEC carried out the first cold test of Pakistan’s atomic bomb [Reference: “Pakistan Became a Nuclear State in 1983- Dr. Samar Mubarakmand”, The Nation (Islamabad) datedMay 2, 2003]


As our sources confirm, the ISI has been keeping a rigid watch on Davis at Kot Lakhpat jail. For starters, the food he receives by Consulate staffers each day is checked before it is served. There can be a possibility that after it was made public through his call records that he was in touch with militants in South Waziristan and his on-camera confession of being a CIA agent, he can be killed directly/indirectly. This can range from food-poisoning to a hit-and-run operation. The CIA wants to discard ‘Raymond Davis’ as he is the acting station chief for Pakistan and possesses a dearth of classified information which is vital for the ISI’s counter-intelligence and counter-terrorism wings.

The leads which have been obtained so far and that are yet to be abstracted can open up a giant Pandora’s box for Pakistan’s security infrastructure and find the tail of the Monster of Terrorism fomented by the CIA and MOSSAD which calls itself the “TTP” or Pakistani Taliban.

On June 23, 2009 Press TV had reported that Qari Zainuddin Mehsud, who was once an active militant alongside Hakimullah Mehsud and the TTP, was killed after he distanced himself in time from the terrorist organisation which he revealed was in close coordination with American and Israeli intelligence services.

The CIA can discard of its recruit once their whole institute’s reputation is at stake. History is a witness to a case which took place before:

On June 7, 1998 CNN aired the “Tailwind” report as a feature news segment on their show “Newsstand.” Reported by CNN veteran Peter Arnett, the stories stated that the CIA connected Studies and Observations Group (SOG), then commanded by CIA veteran and Army General John Singlaub, had used the lethal gas during covert operations into Laos. In particular, the “Tailwind” story reported that American defectors were the intended targets of the attacks.

> As many as twenty U.S. defectors were targeted for elimination by
Special Forces troops assigned to SOG in the Tailwind mission into the 
Savan region of Laos in 1970
> Sarin gas was employed in the mission

> Defectors were a routine "high priority" for execution on all SOG missions
inside Laos 

As the Express Tribune reports, “The Lahore killings were a blessing in 
disguise for our security agencies who suspected that Davis was 
masterminding terrorist activities in Lahore and other parts of Punjab,” 
a senior official in the Punjab police claimed.

In the coming days, more startling revelations await public exposure step-by-
step as Davis is debriefed. The CIA vis-à-vis the US Consulate Lahore can try to
get him eliminated either silently or through subversive means (tipping-off
a police officer with handsome reward to do their job). This is unlikely, however,
considering that the ISI's field officers are keeping an eye on Davis and his cell

Partial acknowledgment by the White House to Davis' status as a CIA just 
recently is part of a process to "accept the blunder, now let's move on". 
Panetta and Gates both fear another Operation 'Rising Sun' looming overhead 
that can expose all covert American presence in Pakistan, and also the fact 
that the US Embassy is the centre of all foreign intelligence warfare 
taking place in Pakistan today

Former Pakistani intelligence chief Hamid Gul went on the Alex Jones Show today and characterized the unverified assassination of Osama bin Laden as symbolic theater.

Gul said the event was a “make believe drama” designed to be used for Obama’s upcoming re-election campaign.

The supposed hit as described by the government and the corporate media is the “stuff of folk lore, for legend-making and the ballad,” Gul explained.

Obama’s “Big Lie”: White House Propaganda and the “Death” of Osama bin Laden

Obama’s “Big Lie”:  White House Propaganda and the “Death” of Osama bin Laden

by Larry Chin
Global Research
May 2, 2011

On the evening of May 1, 2011, President Barack Obama declared that the CIA, on his personal order, successfully killed Al-Qaeda “mastermind” Osama bin Laden. In a conveniently scheduled Sunday evening telecast, Obama shamelessly wielded tired lies and 9/11 propaganda, while congratulating himself and the CIA. In classic lying George W. Bush fashion, Obama announced “mission accomplished”.

Obama has pronounced Osama bin Laden to be dead. But according to historical facts and extensive documented evidence, he may never have been alive in the way that the official propaganda has portrayed him. Or alive at all.

Osama bin Laden has been a CIA asset in reality, and a propaganda boogeyman in official fiction.

The official Osama bin Laden narrative, along with “Islamic terrorism” and Al-Qaeda, is a CIA military-intelligence fabrication designed to provide a pretext for an eternal global war agenda, and to provide an ongoing propaganda pretext for the “war on terrorism”.

The “Militant Islamic Network”, including bin Laden himself, has been, since the Cold War, an intelligence network that has been “run” on behalf of Anglo-American interests.

The attack of 9/11 was a false flag operation, planned and carried out by Anglo-American intelligence assets, blamed on “Al-Qaeda”, despite no credible supporting evidence.

On the other hand, evidence abounds concerning the manipulation of terror assets, including bin Laden, by the CIA. This milieu was thoroughly examined by Mike Ruppert in Crossing the Rubicon, in which he concluded:

“Given the degree of documented intelligence penetration of al Qaeda; the fact that Osama bin Laden had been a CIA asset during the first Afghan conflict against the Soviets; the fact that a number of the so-called hijackers and/or al Qaeda members had been trained in CIA training camps in Chechnya; had fought in CIA/US-sponsored guerrilla conflicts (e.g. in Kosovo with the KLA in 2000), or had received military training at US installations; given all that, it is reasonable to assume that one or more top al Qaeda officials were in fact double or triple agents…”

“Based upon what is known about successful intelligence penetrations for years prior to the attacks of 9/11, Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda could not have sneezed without the CIA or the NSA knowing about it.”

The assertion that bin Laden’s whereabouts have been unknown, that he could have eluded detection for a decade (including the “he’s hiding in caves along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border” and other such fables) was debunked years ago. According to a November 2003 Reuters report, bin Laden received kidney dialysis in a US military hospital in Dubai two months before the 9/11 attacks, and again on September 10, 2001, according to Pakistani intelligence. These and other reports support the conclusion that Osama bin Laden was not only a CIA asset (one whose whereabouts were more than known), but one who was deathly ill. Other reports over the years suggest that the “mastermind” may have certainly died at some point, even while his image continued to be used incessantly to keep the “war on terrorism” alive.

President Obama’s lying before the cameras was as shameless as the clumsiness of the mainstream corporate media dance surrounding it. At the same time Obama stated in his speech that the killing of bin Laden had taken place “tonight” in a mountain hideout in Pakistan, various reporters on competing networks, citing multiple sources, contradicted Obama, stating that bin Laden was killed a week ago in a firefight near Islamabad, and that bin Laden’s body had been tested for DNA since then. This conflict alone raises enough doubt to throw this new official story into the question. In the coming days, there will undoubtedly be more holes revealed.

Seasoned observers have said for years that Osama bin Laden—the mythic figure— would elude capture as long as the Anglo-American elites needed to continue the current course of war in the Middle East and Central Asia. He would never be captured, absolutely never be put on trial, and would not be “killed” unless political expediency demanded it. The elites, for various reasons, have chosen this hour to end this tired and overused trump card.

The “successful kill” of bin Laden comes at a convenient time. Obama’s popularity has plummeted. His political opponents are threatening to unseat him in 2012. The continued US presence in the Middle East and support for the “war on terrorism” is fragile, weakened by popular protests, and ambivalence among Americans.

The “war on terrorism” narrative, the continuing world war carried out in its name, will never end. It is clear, however, that some change in course is in the works; at the very least, a tactical shift.

In the meantime, Barack Obama can now claim to have “finished the job” in Afghanistan, just as he promised to do when elected, and declare himself to be a champion anti-terrorist, a “take-charge” military leader and bastion of justice who has avenged 9/11. Obama will ride this hard for his re-election campaign.

In response to Obama’s victory speech, crowds (of unknown origin) gathered outside the White House chanting “U.S.A.”. Whether this spectacle was staged or genuine is not known. What is known is that the vast majority of the American public remains oblivious to the fact that their own government, Bush/Cheney and Obama administrations alike, have never stopped lying to them about 9/11, the “war on terrorism”, or Osama bin Laden.

Bin Laden died In 2001, 9/11 a false flag

(Says Top US Government Insider Dr. Steve Pieczenik)

Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under three different administrations Steve R. Pieczenik says he is prepared to tell a federal grand jury the name of a top general who told him directly 9/11 was a false flag attack.

Top US government insider Dr. Steve R. Pieczenik, a man who held numerous different influential positions under three different Presidents and still works with the Defense Department, shockingly told The Alex Jones Show yesterday that Osama Bin Laden died in 2001 and that he was prepared to testify in front of a grand jury how a top general told him directly that 9/11 was a false flag inside job.

Pieczenik cannot be dismissed as a “conspiracy theorist”. He served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under three different administrations, Nixon, Ford and Carter, while also working under Reagan and Bush senior, and still works as a consultant for the Department of Defense. A former US Navy Captain, Pieczenik achieved two prestigious Harry C. Solomon Awards at the Harvard Medical School as he simultaneously completed a PhD at MIT.

Recruited by Lawrence Eagleburger as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Management, Pieczenik went on to develop, “the basic tenets for psychological warfare, counter terrorism, strategy and tactics for transcultural negotiations for the US State Department, military and intelligence communities and other agencies of the US Government,” while also developing foundational strategies for hostage rescue that were later employed around the world.

Pieczenik also served as a senior policy planner under Secretaries Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, George Schultz and James Baker and worked on George W. Bush’s election campaign against Al Gore. His record underscores the fact that he is one of the most deeply connected men in intelligence circles over the past three decades plus.

The character of Jack Ryan, who appears in many Tom Clancy novels and was also played by Harrison Ford in the popular 1992 movie Patriot Games, is also based on Steve Pieczenik.

Back in April 2002, over nine years ago, Pieczenik told the Alex Jones Show that Bin Laden had already been “dead for months,” and that the government was waiting for the most politically expedient time to roll out his corpse.

Pieczenik would be in a position to know, having personally met Bin Laden and worked with him during the proxy war against the Soviets in Afghanistan back in the early 80′s.

Pieczenik said that Osama Bin Laden died in 2001, “Not because special forces had killed him, but because as a physician I had known that the CIA physicians had treated him and it was on the intelligence roster that he had marfan syndrome,” adding that the US government knew Bin Laden was dead before they invaded Afghanistan.

Marfan syndrome is a degenerative genetic disease for which there is no permanent cure. The illness severely shortens the life span of the sufferer.

“He died of marfan syndrome, Bush junior knew about it, the intelligence community knew about it,” said Pieczenik, noting how CIA physicians had visited Bin Laden in July 2001 at the American Hospital in Dubai.

“He was already very sick from marfan syndrome and he was already dying, so nobody had to kill him,” added Pieczenik, stating that Bin Laden died shortly after 9/11 in his Tora Bora cave complex.

“Did the intelligence community or the CIA doctor up this situation, the answer is yes, categorically yes,” said Pieczenik, referring to Sunday’s claim that Bin Laden was killed at his compound in Pakistan, adding, “This whole scenario where you see a bunch of people sitting there looking at a screen and they look as if they’re intense, that’s nonsense,” referring to the images released by the White House which claim to show Biden, Obama and Hillary Clinton watching the operation to kill Bin Laden live on a television screen.

It’s a total make-up, make believe, we’re in an American theater of the absurd….why are we doing this again….nine years ago this man was already dead….why does the government repeatedly have to lie to the American people,” asked Pieczenik.

“Osama Bin Laden was totally dead, so there’s no way they could have attacked or confronted or killed Osama Bin laden,” said Pieczenik, joking that the only way it could have happened was if special forces had attacked a mortuary.

Pieczenik said that the decision to launch the hoax now was made because Obama had reached a low with plummeting approval ratings and the fact that the birther issue was blowing up in his face.

“He had to prove that he was more than American….he had to be aggressive,” said Pieczenik, adding that the farce was also a way of isolating Pakistan as a retaliation for intense opposition to the Predator drone program, which has killed hundreds of Pakistanis.

“This is orchestrated, I mean when you have people sitting around and watching a sitcom, basically the operations center of the White House, and you have a president coming out almost zombie-like telling you they just killed Osama Bin Laden who was already dead nine years ago,” said Pieczenik, calling the episode, “the greatest falsehood I’ve ever heard, I mean it was absurd.”

Dismissing the government’s account of the assassination of Bin Laden as a “sick joke” on the American people, Pieczenik said, “They are so desperate to make Obama viable, to negate the fact that he may not have been born here, any questions about his background, any irregularities about his background, to make him look assertive….to re-elect this president so the American public can be duped once again.”

Pieczenik’s assertion that Bin Laden died almost ten years ago is echoed by numerous intelligence professionals as well as heads of state across the world.
Bin Laden, “Was used in the same way that 9/11 was used to mobilize the emotions and feelings of the American people in order to go to a war that had to be justified through a narrative that Bush junior created and Cheney created about the world of terrorism,” stated Pieczenik.

During his interview with the Alex Jones Show yesterday, Pieczenik also asserted he was directly told by a prominent general that 9/11 was a stand down and a false flag operation, and that he is prepared to go to a grand jury to reveal the general’s name.

“They ran the attacks,” said Pieczenik, naming Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Stephen Hadley, Elliott Abrams, and Condoleezza Rice amongst others as having been directly involved.

“It was called a stand down, a false flag operation in order to mobilize the American public under false pretenses….it was told to me even by the general on the staff of Wolfowitz – I will go in front of a federal committee and swear on perjury who the name was of the individual so that we can break it open,” said Pieczenik, adding that he was “furious” and “knew it had happened”.

“I taught stand down and false flag operations at the national war college, I’ve taught it with all my operatives so I knew exactly what was done to the American public,” he added.

Pieczenik re-iterated that he was perfectly willing to reveal the name of the general who told him 9/11 was an inside job in a federal court, “so that we can unravel this thing legally, not with the stupid 9/11 Commission that was absurd.”

Pieczenik explained that he was not a liberal, a conservative or a tea party member, merely an American who is deeply concerned about the direction in which his country is heading.
