Sploid – July 4, 2006
July 4 is always a special day for the United States, and today is no different -- although instead of celebrating past glories and canceled freedoms, today Americans are celebrating the utter failure of the U.S. government
to capture the alleged mastermind behind the attacks of September 11, 2001.
But that "failure" has been a terrific help to the Bush Administration, according to a shocking report released today
. The CIA saw Bin Laden as "helping Bush's re-election," while the 9/11 attacks turned an unpopular, bumbling president who needed the Supreme Court to "elect" him into a "war president" who managed to barely win a second term.
It was also revealed today that the CIA closed its special Osama bin Laden unit
... a whole year ago!
The special terrorist-hunting unit was called "Alec Station" and had been pursuing Bin Laden, a former CIA operative, since the mid-1990s.
While CIA officials weakly claimed the search for Bin Laden "remains a high priority," it's obviously not important at all
It turns out the Bush Administration needs Bin Laden on the loose, no matter if he's actually alive – the FBI believes Osama has been dead four years
– and no matter if he had anything to do with terror attacks
in the United States.
To this day, no less an authority than the Justice Department's FBI has found "no hard evidence"
linking the wealthy Saudi to 9/11. In fact, the FBI is only dedicated to protecting Bin Laden's "right to privacy
," not bringing him to justice.
The dramatic news was all released on Independence Day, when absolutely nobody is paying attention to the news.
But the damning revelations won't surprise those who remember the terror bogeyman has always firmly denied having anything to do with the psychologically devastating attacks on America.
Only in a clumsily faked video
put out by the Pentagon did "Bin Laden" even claim to have a few days' advance knowledge of the attacks – the Pentagon, CIA, Justice Department, FBI
and White House
in advance, while preparations for the attacks
had been in the works
