Introduction — Oct 23, 2013
This really is an insult to the intelligence of anyone capable of INDEPENDENT thought. It’s also an indication of how low the corporate media has sunk in promoting the latest chapter in the contrived “War on Terror”.
More than that though it also reflects how the powers that be, working through the corporate media, now hold the general public in utter contempt.
From 9/11 to 7/7, numerous episodes in the “War on Terror” have been carried out with the assistance of the very agencies meant to be fighting terrorism.
You only have to look at reports of Bin Laden’s links to the CIA during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan to know that there’s more to the millionaire Saudi businessman than the media-intelligence complex would have us believe.
The fact that former British foreign secretary Robin Cook told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was used by U.S. Intelligence and the Saudis to funnel arms and assistance into Soviet occupied Afghanistan tends to back claims that it was originally created by covert Western intelligence.
All the more so as the previously healthy Robin Cooke died from an alleged heart attack shortly thereafter.
Yet now al Qaeda is held as justification whenever new legislation is being considered in the “War on Terror”. While the name bin Laden is repeatedly used to invoke the image of a terrorist threat, rather than the immensely rich Saudi businessman he was.
This latest episode almost reads like an episode from a poorly scripted TV drama. As if it had been written by hacks in the employ of Western intelligence to perpetuate the theatre.
This isn’t journalism. It’s propaganda masquerading as journalism that goes along with the official story. Without question.
For example, it doesn’t ask WHO put the 34-line poem found on Samantha Lewthwaite’s laptop? Was it really Samantha Lewthwaite? Or was did anonymous scriptwriters working for covert Western intelligence put it there?
After all, the 34-line poem could very easily been placed on Lewthwaite’s laptop waiting to be found by investigators.
Nor does it question whether Lewthwaite wrote the alleged “love poem”. Instead it reports the story exactly as officials claim it to be and nothing more.
Without querying the official account once we are expected to believe this; just as we are supposed to think that bin Laden masterminded 9/11 and the flawless demolition of what had hitherto been the world’s tallest building from a remote mountain cave Afghanistan.
British fugitive Samantha Lewthwaite wrote ‘love poem’ for Osama bin Laden
Haroon Siddique — The Guardian Oct 22, 2013
The British woman allegedly linked to the Kenyan shopping centre attack penned an ode to Osama bin Laden, declaring: “My love for you is like no other,” it has emerged.
The 34-line poem was found on a laptop belonging to Samantha Lewthwaite, who was married to 7 July 2005 suicide bomber Germaine Lindsay. Last month, Interpol issued an international arrest warrant for Lewthwaite in connection with suspected terrorist offences in 2011.
In the ode to Bin Laden, the 29-year-old told the dead al-Qaida leader he was “in a better place”, adding: “Us we are left to continue what you started. To seek the victory until we are martyred. To instil terror into kuffar.”
The laptop was found by detectives at her house in the Kenyan city of Mombasa, Sky News reported. A flash drive found by police showed she had spent eight years researching chemicals, explosive ingredients and how to make bombs, it said.
Among the documents she downloaded was one called the Mujahideen Explosives Handbook. But as well as bomb-making she appears to have been preoccupied with her personal appearance.
Examination of the laptop’s hard drive showed she had also Googled a significant number of workout and weight loss sites, as well as makeover sites which demonstrated how to have hair like the singer Taylor Swift. There were also self-portraits of Lewthwaite, including one with her children, Sky News said.
There has been intense speculation linking Lewthwaite to the attack on the Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi for which the al-Qaida-linked Somali group al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility but the warrant does not relate to the atrocity, which left at least 67 dead. The Kenyan Red Cross says 23 people are still missing.
Sky News said its investigation revealed that Lewthwaite had acquired three addresses in the Kenyan capital, including one where she lived for seven months in 2011.
In the aftermath of the 7 July 2005 bombings in London, Lewthwaite insisted that she was horrified by them. But she later disappeared with the couple’s two children, only to re-emerge in Kenya as a committed jihadi who is believed to be working with al-Shabaab.
