More fig leaf's

America's Top Bin Laden Expert: Osama's Dead, the Tape is Phony:
ABC News
Op-Ed by Kevin Barrett,

As a Ph.D. Islamologist and Arabist I really hate to say this, but I'llsay
it anyway: 9/11 had nothing to do with Islam. The war on terror isas phony as
the latest "Bin Laden tape." (1)

It's a tough thing to admit, because I know on which side my bread
isbuttered-and dropping Islam from the 9/11 equation is dropping my sliceof
bread butter-side-down. The myth that 9/11 had something to do withMuslims has
poured millions, if not billions, into Arabic and Islamicstudies. I finished my
Ph.D. last year, so all I have to do is keep myeyes in my pocket and my nose on
the ground, parrot the party line, andI'll be on the fast track to tenure

The trouble is, it's all based on a Big Lie. Take the recent "bin
Laden"tape-please! That voice was no more bin Laden than it was
RodneyDangerfield channeling my late Aunt Corinne from Peoria. I recentlyhelped
translate a previously unknown bin Laden tape, a real one fromthe early 90's,
back when he was still alive. I know the guy's floweryreligious rhetoric. The
recent tape wasn't him.

The top American bin Laden expert agrees. Professor Bruce Lawrence, headof
Duke University's Religious Studies department, has just published abook of
translations of bin Laden's speeches. He says the recent tape is a fake, and
that bin Laden has been dead for years. (2)

Ersatz Bin Laden tapes, "verified" by the CIA, are nothing new. Every"Bin
Laden" statement since 2001 has been blatantly bogus. The last weheard from the
real Bin Laden came in his post-9/11 statements toPakistani journalists: "I
stress that I have not carried out this act,which appears to have been carried
out by individuals with their ownmotivation... I have already said that I am not
involved in the 11September attacks in the United States... I had no knowledge
of theseattacks..." (3)

Then on December 13th, 2001, as George Bush was whining about
the"outrageous conspiracy theories" that were spreading like wildfire, thefirst
and shoddiest of the "Bin Laden speaks from beyond the grave"tapes appeared. The
video's sound and picture quality were horrible. Itshowed a big guy with a black
beard, doing a passable imitation of BinLaden's voice, claiming foreknowledge,
if not responsibility, for the9/11 attacks, and chortling over their success.
The trouble was, the bigguy clearly was not Bin Laden. He was at least 40 or 50
pounds heavier,and his facial features were obviously different. (4)

The "Fatty Bin Laden" tape was widely ridiculed, and I have yet to meetan
informed observer who considers it authentic. (If you haven't figuredthis out
yet, go back and look at the images from the tape, and comparethem to other
images of Bin Laden.) But the media let the fraud passwithout asking the hard
questions: Why was the US government waving thisblatantly fake "confession"
video in our faces?

Perhaps due to the widespread hilarity evoked by "Fatty Bin Laden," thenext
"Osama from beyond the grave" message had no images-it was an audiotape
delivered to al-Jazeera in fall, 2002. The CIA verified it asauthentic, and then
got a rotten egg in the face when the world'sleading voice identification
experts at IDIAP in Switzerland reportedthat "the message was recorded by an
impostor." (5)

Every "bin Laden" message since then has been equally phony. They
arereleased at moments when the Bush Regime needs a boost-and the Americanmedia
goes along with the fraud. Remember the bogus bin Laden tape thatmade headlines
right before the 2004 presidential elections? If youdidn't figure out that it
was a CIA-produced commercial for George Bush,I have some great bridges to sell
you. Walter Cronkite, bless his heart,opined that Karl Rove was behind that
tape. (6) But the rest of themedia just kept pretending that the Emperor was

And the fraud continues. Last week's "bin Laden" tape has been ridiculedby
America's top bin Laden expert-yet the US media keeps right onholding a
transparent fig leaf in front of the Emperor's crotch!Professor Lawrence
believes that this phony tape was designed todistract world opinion from the
horrific massacre of Pakistani civiliansby an errant CIA drone. But it may have
another, more sinister purpose:To prepare public opinion for another false-flag
9/11 style attackdesigned to trigger a US-Israeli nuclear attack on Iran.

As our top Bin Laden expert Professor Lawrence informs us, the real
BinLaden, who insisted that he had nothing to do with 9/11, has been deadfor
quite some time--probably 1since 2001. The fake messages have beenfabricated by
al-CIA-duh to support the Bush regime and its phony "waron terror." It is time
for Americans to rise up in revolt against thefake-terror masters who are
looting US taxpayers, torching ourConstitution, demolishing our economy, and
threatening nuclear Armageddon.

The Other Big Brother: The Defense Department

Late on a June afternoon in 2004, a motley group of about 10 peace activists showed
up outside the Houston headquarters of Halliburton to protest the corporation's
war profiteering. To US Army analysts at the top-secret Counterintelligence
Field Activity (CIFA), the "peanut-butter" protest was regarded as one of many
potential threats to national security and began warrantless civilian monitoring.

Partial List of IP Blocks Used by US "Terrorist Surveillance Program

The following partial list of IP blocks are routinely used by the US government entities (supported by private contractors) to gain access to, to monitor, and in some cases, to destroy IT networks. Such activity is related to the US “Terrorist Surveillance Program.” Most of the registrants of the blocks listed below are not aware of these activities. Concerned network admins should examine traffic logs closely. A correlation of traffic from several of these IP blocks likely indicates that a network is under surveillance or has had access attempted by the US intelligence community and affiliated entities.
