Report: Bin Laden Already Dead Fox News - Report: Bin Laden Already Dead - U.S. & World

Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, thePakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader.

"The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said.

Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his grave was made as per his Wahabi belief.

About 30 close associates of bin Laden in Al Qaeda, including his most trusted and personal bodyguards, his family members and some "Taliban friends," attended the funeral rites. A volley of bullets was also fired to pay final tribute to the "great leader."

The Taliban source who claims to have seen bin Laden's face before burial said "he looked pale ... but calm, relaxed and confident."

Asked whether bin Laden had any feelings of remorse before death, the source vehemently said "no." Instead, he said, bin Laden was proud that he succeeded in his mission of igniting awareness amongst Muslims about hegemonistic designs and conspiracies of "pagans" against Islam. Bin Laden, he said, held the view that the sacrifice of a few hundred people in Afghanistan was nothing, as those who laid their lives in creating an atmosphere of resistance will be adequately rewarded by Almighty Allah.

When asked where bin Laden was buried, the source said, "I am sure that like other places in Tora Bora, that particular place too must have vanished."

Obama, Cameron discuss tightening pressure on Gaddafi

Obama, Cameron discuss tightening pressure on Gaddafi | Reuters

(Reuters) - President Barack Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron Wednesday discussed the need to increase diplomatic and economic pressure on Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, the White House said.

The two leaders agreed that U.N. Security Council resolutions demanding that the Libyan government cease violence against civilians must be fully implemented.

"In addition to increasing military pressure and protecting civilians through the coalition operation that NATO is leading, the leaders discussed the importance of increasing diplomatic and economic pressure on the Gaddafi regime to cease attacks on civilians and comply with U.N. Security Council resolutions," a White House statement said.

Royal wedding: two protests planned as police consider pre-emptive arrests

Scotland Yard to mount one of its biggest ever operations on the day of the wedding amid fears of disruption by activists

Police across the country could make pre-emptive strikes in the coming days to arrest activists intent on causing trouble during the royal wedding, Scotland Yard has revealed.

The Metropolitan police are working with other forces across England and Wales and using local intelligence to identify activists and anarchists who they believe are committed to carrying out criminal activity on 29 April.

"We will attempt to prevent people coming to London to carry out criminal activity," said assistant commissioner Lynne Owens, head of central operations at Scotland Yard, adding there would be police activity in the days ahead of the event to "disrupt any criminal behaviour that may be anticipated".

But the tactic of making pre-emptive arrests of groups or individuals planning demonstrations is controversial. Police have to prove that a criminal plot has taken place before moving in, or that a breach of the peace is imminent, for example seconds, minutes or possibly hours away, according to legal experts.

Scotland Yard has also said that two groups have applied for permission to protest in the immediate area of the wedding on the day. Muslims Against Crusades, an offshoot of the outlawed group al-Muhajiroun, is in ongoing discussions with the police. The Yard has refused them permission to demonstrate outside Westminster Abbey but cannot stop them mounting a static protest elsewhere. In response, the English Defence League has indicated they will mount a counter-demonstration, raising fears of a flashpoint on the day.

No Time for Civility

American Thinker: No Time for Civility
Most of the current leaders and many of the rank and file within the American conservative movement have as their defining characteristic a bottomless pit of pessimism and timidity, combined with an overarching fixation with civility. Their political opponents, the liberals, have as their defining characteristic an air of confidence that they are always right as well as the smartest people in any room, combined with the knowledge that they can intimidate and exploit the aforementioned natural proclivity of the conservatives. There is an obvious cause and effect at play.

Those on the left side of the American political spectrum have latched onto political theories and philosophies that stress the importance of a collective or strong central government as the primary solution to man's need to survive and prosper. These concepts have as their core the need for a central ruling class, theoretically benevolent, which dovetails nicely with the innate superior mindset of the left.

In order to govern and control the levers of power, the left must obtain the consent of at least the majority of the citizenry. That is relatively easy to do, as the preponderance of the population will choose the path of least resistance in order to acquire security and prosperity. Thus the left has an easy sell when they promise that they, in charge of the government, will guarantee a substantial standard of living for all.

Never mind that the centralized approach to governing by a dominant ruling class has ultimately failed throughout the history of mankind, whether it was designated as a monarchy, oligarchy, or dictatorship, or in the modern era, adherents of Marxism, socialism, or communism. For these philosophies to succeed, they must have an economic underpinning that can provide the foundation for massive social spending.

Conservatives, on the other hand, have a much harder sell. They must tout the fact that only limited power granted to government combined with a capitalist economic system can produce sufficient wealth to underwrite a social safety net for the public and finance the wealth and security of any nation.

Capitalism does by its nature celebrate the success of the individual, not the collective. Individuals, separately or together, driven by the motive of self-enrichment, produce goods or services desired by others. In the process, jobs and wealth are created, thus benefiting society as a whole.

Book To Reveal Obama’s True Identity?

Book To Reveal Obama’s True Identity?

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

The street date is a LONG month away, and author Jerome Corsi, the man who torpedoed John Kerry’s presidential dreams with SWIFT BOAT, has gone underground and is holding his new findings thisclose.

“It’s utterly devastating,” reveals a source close to the publisher. “Obama may learn things he didn’t even know about himself!”

Does Corsi definitively declare the location of Obama’s birth?

Will the president’s attorneys attempt to interfere with the book’s distribution? [The publisher vows to vigorously fight any legal action that may be taken.]

Will the book finally — once and for all — put an end to the growing controversy?

Federal Borrowing on Pace to Hit Debt Limit in Less Than Week

Federal Borrowing on Pace to Hit Debt Limit in Less Than Week |
Wednesday, April 20, 2011

( - Federal borrowing is on pace to hit the legal limit on the national debt in less than a week.

As set in a law passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama on Feb. 12, 2010, the legal limit on the national debt is $14.2940 trillion. As of the close of business Tuesday, according to the Daily Treasury Statement released at 4:00 pm today, the portion of the national debt subject to this legal limit was $ 14.268365 trillion. (The total national debt, including the portion exempted from the legal limit, was $14.3205 trillion.)

This left the U.S. Treasury with the authority to borrow only an additional $25.635 billion before it hits the statutory debt limit.

On April 4, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) in order to warn Congress that the Treasury was approaching the legal debt limit. In an appendix to this letter, Geithner pointed to the rapid pace at which new debt was accumulating.

“On average,” Geithner wrote, “the public debt of the United States increases by approximately $125 billion per month (although there are significant variations from month to month).”

The OKC Bombing Top Ten Reasons To Question

The OKC Bombing Top Ten

Top ten reasons to question
the official story
By: Holland O. Van den Nieuwenhof

1. John Doe #2 And Other Accomplices

Timothy McVeigh is supposed to be the only one who drove the Ryder truck full of explosives up to the Murrah building and detonated it. But the government only produced one witness during McVeigh’s trial to place him in Oklahoma City. That witness, Daina Bradley, lost her children, her mother and her leg in the bombing. Under cross-examination, she admitted that she saw McVeigh with another man, the fabled John Doe #2, in the Ryder truck. Numerous ( 1 2 ) other witnesses state that they saw McVeigh with other perpetrators the day of the bombing. There are also numerous other witness accounts of McVeigh accompanied by other men during his preparation for the bombing and even when he rented the Ryder truck. In some cases, these suspects have been identified by witnesses and yet the government claims that McVeigh was the sole actor in the tragedy of April 19, 1995.

2. Why Was The ATF AWOL

Paramedic Tiffany Bible, who was on the scene within five minutes, has stated in an affidavit that agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) told her that they were not in their office that morning. EMT Katherine Mallet also overheard one ATF agent say to another, “Is that why we got the page not to come in today?” Bruce Shaw, as interviewed on KFOR-TV, was also told by ATF agents that they had been paged not to come in to work. ATF agents initially denied these claims and now variously claim that one of their agents was in a free-falling elevator (this has been disproved), or that they had been on an all-night stakeout or that they had been at a golf tournament. As they try to sort out their lies, all we want to know is: did the ATF receive a warning, and if so, why did they not pass it on to others in the Murrah building?

3. Other Bombs Going Off

Several survivors vividly recall that the Murrah building began to tremble and pitch before the truck bomb blew off the fa├žade of the building. Jane Graham of HUD felt an earthquake sensation and felt the building pitch back and forth. A warning was yelled out to get under the desks, which saved the lives of Graham and everyone else in the room when everything collapsed 8-10 seconds after the initial tremors. Jack Gobin of the Dept. of Agriculture also felt an earthquake sensation and got under his desk before the collapse. Michael Hinton, a federal agent, was on a bus several blocks away when two separate blast waves nearly tilted the bus over. Given that the blast wave of an ANFO bomb travels at 1,100 feet per second, it is inconceivable that one event could be responsible for the 10 second gap between the episodes. The seismograph at the University of Oklahoma also records two separate episodes, 10 seconds apart.

4. Experts Refute The Official Story

Air Force General Benton Partin, who for years headed the Air Force Armaments Laboratory, examined evidence of the bombing and issued a report concluding that, “the massive destruction was primarily the result of four demolition charges placed at critical structural points at the third floor level.” Dr. Sam Cohen, inventor of the neutron bomb, also agrees, stating, “I believe that the demolitions charges in the building were placed inside at certain key concrete columns did the primary damage to the Murrah Federal Building,” and that, “It would have been absolutely impossible and against the laws of nature for a truck full of fertilizer and fuel oil… no matter how much was used… to bring the building down.” So who planted those charges, and why have they not been brought to justice?

5. More Bombs Found In The Building

There were several additional evacuations of the Murrah building after the initial damage due to what were later attributed to baseless bomb scares. But several witnesses have declared that real, unexploded ordnance was discovered in the wreckage of the Murrah building and that this ordnance was recovered by the bomb squad. OKC Fire Marshal Dick Miller reported that a second bomb had been found with a timer set to go off ten minutes after the first explosions, apparently to target the responders. The OK Highway Patrol dispatch logs state that a second bomb was found, as does a Dept. of Defense Atlantic Command log which states that, “A second bomb was disarmed, and third bomb was evacuated.” NurseToni Garret has reported that four rescue workers had told her that another bomb had been found set to detonate ten minutes after the first detonations. The official story says that these bomb scares were due to a suspicious briefcase, a gimmick alarm clock or an inert training device used by the ATF. Recently OETA, the public broadcasting channel in Oklahoma, reported that the bomb scares were contrived in order to make the media pull back from the scene, even though many victims were abandoned during these evacuations. As the various agencies and mainstream media outlets try to sort out their stories, all we ask is: who planted these bombs and why is the government lying about them?

6. Informants Told The Government The Murrah Building Was Going To Be Bombed

ATF informant Carol Howe had infiltrated Elohim City, a white separatist community in eastern Oklahoma, in the months before the bombing. She reported to her handlers that extremists were plotting to bomb federal buildings and assassinate government officials and that they were making reconnaissance trips to OKC. She has named Andreas Strassmeier, Michael Brescia, Dennis Mahon and Peter and Tony Ward as probable accomplices to Tim McVeigh. It should be noted that McVeigh placed a phone call to Andreas Strassmeier at Elohim City shortly before the bombing. Her testimony was ruled inadmissible and an ABC 20/20 special on her story was cancelled following a call made to ABC by the Dept. of Justice, according to the show’s producer. Furthermore another informant, Cary Gagan, was granted a letter of immunity by the Dept. of Justice for his work in reporting on a terrorist group that was plotting to destroy the Alfred P. Murrah Building. He warned his handlers that he had been delivering explosives for this group and that he had been sent on scouting missions to the Murrah building.

7. Foreknowledge

A U.S. Army nurse reported to the Oklahoma Bombing Investigation Committee that a call was placed to her office at Walter Reed Army Hospital three or four days before the bombing. The “Pentagon… or congressional liaison to the Governor of Oklahoma’s office” requested information on the “triage for victims of blast overpressure.” The nurse’s supervisor corroborates this statement. This was followed up by a second phone call to a Colonel in the office who has refused to release the notes of the conversation. The colonel was never subpoenaed nor were the phone records for the governor’s office. Just what was this liaison to the state government preparing for?

8. Bomb Squad At The Federal Courthouse Before The Bombing

Randall Yount met an acquaintance of his at the bombing scene who was a member of the OK Co. Bomb Squad. This man told Yount, “Yeah, we’ve been down here since early this morning looking. We got word there was going to be a bomb, and we thought it was going to be at the courthouse. We went over and couldn’t find anything.” Renee Cooper, Attorney Dan Adomitis, J.D. Reed with the Ok. Co. Assessor’s Office, Norma Joslin of the Ok. Co. Board of Elections and private investigator Claude Crissall report seeing the bomb squad at the federal courthouse that morning, before the bombing.

9. The Extra Leg

According to Stephen Jones, McVeigh's attorney, State Medical Examiner Vernon Jordan has stated, “We have eight people with traumatically amputated left legs, and we have nine left legs.” Dr. Jordan also added that the chances that someone was buried with two right legs to be zero. Chief Pathologist for Northern Ireland T.K. Marshall had performed autopsies on 2,500 bombing victims in his time and has stated, “There is never an unknown victim.” One must assume that this leg belonged to a perpetrator close enough to the bomb for his body to be “disrupted” to such an extent, leaving only a leg behind. So who was this person?

10. What Is On The Surveillance Tapes

There were dozens of video surveillance cameras that recorded what was going on the morning of the bombing, yet almost none of these have been released and none show what transpired with the Ryder truck at the Murrah building. Most recently, the government has claimed that all the cameras pointed at the Murrah building, in many different buildings and maintained by different offices and businesses, were having their tapes changed at the same time, 9:02 a.m. This is ludicrous, and insulting to the memory of those who perished in the bombing. What do they have to hide?

Demand the release of the surveillance tapes!

Many of these questions could be put to rest by the release of the dozens of security tapes in and around the Murrah building on April 19, 1995. These tapes were seized by the FBI immediately after the bombing and only a select few have been released to the public. Furthermore, dozens more are known to have been seized from convenience stores along the route of the Ryder truck from Kansas to Oklahoma. If there is nothing to hide, all the perpetrators brought to justice and the case closed, why does the government continue to hold these tapes under the seal of “national security?”

Speak and write to your local and national representatives to ask for the release of these tapes which will ultimately let the American people decide for themselves if the official account of the bombing is true or not. And if it is not true, we must demand accountability for those who lied. Accountability is the only way to ensure that attacks like these do not happen again. And it is the only way to honor the 168 men, women and children whose lives were cut short that day.

Do your own research. Ask questions.

EXCLUSIVE: Arizona Sheriff Cites Flood of Border Agents Confirming Feds' No-Apprehension Policy

An Arizona sheriff says he has been flooded with calls and emails of support from local and federal agents who back his claims that the U.S. Border Patrol has effectively ordered them to stop apprehending illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexican border.

“Upper management has advised supervisors to have agents ‘turn back South’ (TBS) the illegal aliens (aka bodies) they detect attempting to unlawfully enter the country … at times you even hear supervisors order the agents over the radio to 'TBS' the aliens instead of catching them,” one San Diego border agent wrote in an email to Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever.

“This only causes more problems as the aliens, as you know, don't just go back to Mexico and give up. They keep trying, sometimes without 10 minutes in-between attempts, to cross illegally,” continued the email, which was among a number of communications to Dever reviewed by “This makes the job for agents more dangerous. Not only are the aliens more defiant, they also begin to feel like they can get away with breaking our federal laws.”

Michigan: Police Search Cell Phones During Traffic Stops

Michigan: Police Search Cell Phones During Traffic Stops
ACLU seeks information on Michigan program that allows cops to download information from smart phones belonging to stopped motorists.

CelleBriteThe Michigan State Police have a high-tech mobile forensics device that can be used to extract information from cell phones belonging to motorists stopped for minor traffic violations. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan last Wednesday demanded that state officials stop stonewalling freedom of information requests for information on the program.

ACLU learned that the police had acquired the cell phone scanning devices and in August 2008 filed an official request for records on the program, including logs of how the devices were used. The state police responded by saying they would provide the information only in return for a payment of $544,680. The ACLU found the charge outrageous.

"Law enforcement officers are known, on occasion, to encourage citizens to cooperate if they have nothing to hide," ACLU staff attorney Mark P. Fancher wrote. "No less should be expected of law enforcement, and the Michigan State Police should be willing to assuage concerns that these powerful extraction devices are being used illegally by honoring our requests for cooperation and disclosure."

A US Department of Justice test of the CelleBrite UFED used by Michigan police found the device could grab all of the photos and video off of an iPhone within one-and-a-half minutes. The device works with 3000 different phone models and can even defeat password protections.
