whole buncha acewholes disavowed and their double-00 status rescinded...,

zerohedge |  But according to NBC News, which has reportedly been conducting their own investigation for the last several years, Hersh’s claims aren’t that inaccurate after all.
Two intelligence sources tell NBC News that the year before the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, a “walk in” asset from Pakistani intelligence told the CIA where the most wanted man in the world was hiding – and these two sources plus a third say that the Pakistani government knew where bin Laden was hiding all along.

The U.S. government has always characterized the heroic raid by Seal Team Six that killed bin Laden as a unilateral U.S. operation, and has maintained that the CIA found him by tracking couriers to his walled complex in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

The new revelations do not necessarily cast doubt on the overall narrative that the White House began circulating within hours of the May 2011 operation. The official story about how bin Laden was found was constructed in a way that protected the identity and existence of the asset, who also knew who inside the Pakistani government was aware of the Pakistani intelligence agency’s operation to hide bin Laden, according to a special operations officer with prior knowledge of the bin Laden mission. The official story focused on a long hunt for bin Laden’s presumed courier, Ahmed al-Kuwaiti.

The NBC News sources who confirm that a Pakistani intelligence official became a “walk in” asset include the special operations officer and a CIA officer who had served in Pakistan. These two sources and a third source, a very senior former U.S. intelligence official, also say that elements of the ISI were aware of bin Laden’s presence in Abbottabad. The former official was emphatic about the ISI’s awareness, saying twice, “They knew.”
The one thing that President Obama could hail as a success during his tenure as President has now been exposed as an outright lie.

 Slate  |  Here’s what NBC wrote earlier this week:
Two intelligence sources tell NBC News that the year before the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, a “walk in” asset from Pakistani intelligence told the CIA where the most wanted man in the world was hiding.
If true, that would be major news. But NBC now says it’s not actually true. Here’s what now appears atop NBC’s story on the walk-in:
Editor's Note: This story has been updated since it was first published. The original version of this story said that a Pakistani asset told the U.S. where bin Laden was hiding. Sources say that while the asset provided information vital to the hunt for bin Laden, he was not the source of his whereabouts.
While NBC’s story doesn’t use the word correction or retraction, that’s what this appears to be. The walk-in “did not provide the location of the al Qaeda leader’s Abottabad, Pakistan compound,” the story now says.

(Let's see. Let's see. How do I convince the blog owner that I not just trying to confound his observations about THE PAST - the hit that FEW PEOPLE WOULD CONTEST and have him to put emphasis on the PRESENT DAY DIVERSION SCHEME? GOT IT)

Dear Brother CNu:

Do you remember this chocolate beauty?

Zerlina Maxwell

* Grew up in New Jersey

* Daughter of a Civil Rights Activist

* NAACP Young program

* Made her rounds as the "Obama Administration Defender" on Fox News, The Root, The Grio and TheLoop

When the "Street Car Named 'Obama' " had that new car smell, CNu - operatives like Zerlina Maxwell were sent into the media to CHEERLEAD FOR OBAMA.

Please recall that when:

* Obama Killed Osama - Maxwell and the new class of "Black Journalists and Opinion Shapers" CHEERED. At this time, CNu - I used my blog to note that ALWAYS they were turn their cheering into a DEMAND that the WHITE RIGHT WING ADVERSARY PRAISE OBAMA as a CAPABLE IMPERIALIST equal to his 43 predecessors

* THEN LIBYA HAPPENED. The line "I am running a HUMANITARIAN MISSION IN LIBYA" had not been used successfully on another African nation since King Leopold II of Belgium used this as a Hegelian Head Fake to justify his colonization of "The Congo". When GADDAFFI WAS KILLED this same crew CHEERED AGAIN!!! The oppressor who was going to kill millions was DEAD. "THANK YOU PRESIDENT OBAMA"!!

* The Present Condition Of The PEOPLE IN LIBYA

"OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD......................TENS OF THOUSANDS OF AFRICANS TODAY ARE STRUGGLING TO STAY ALIVE IN LIBYA AND THE HORN OF AFRICA" - after the handiwork of US Foreign policy and no domestic protests in the USA or Press Advocacy.

THIS IS THE COUP (in America)

nah Feed..,,i aim't hip to none of the above. please explaon how it all hangs together.

CNu said...

Why exactly are you here again?

BigDonOne said...

Fundamentally, to show that it's genes causing the ContinuousProblemz, not 400 years of oppression....

CNu said...

That's the equivalent of Ken and ConFeed trying to turn this into the evangelical power hour - and it's not going to happen. You see BD, you're not accumulating the information density required to make your case. So here's what I'm going to do for you again, - your spot is ready and waiting for you - please begin holding forth on your HBD suppositions over there. Running in and out of these other threads with your smoldering little bags of poo poo aren't going to carry the day in making your case that it's the genes and not your own silly neurosis writ large that have caused these problems.

[quote]if you believe any of the statement you've written above - I expect to see your prompt disavowel of the garrison state. [/quote]

Did you get the license plate of that bus that just drove through the room?

You post artifacts that YOU explain that you don't totally agree with and then charge ME with misunderstanding your point for posting.


The point of my posting of the video was to show that there are narratives that run contrary to what the US FEDERAL GOVERNMENT told us about "Libya" or, what was NOT SAID as this same government wised up and saw that WARS OF RENDITION in which Americans are not killed are more effective as the USUAL SUSPECTS don't protest and the "Blood Thirsty War Machine" is pleased that the bombs are still dropping. They are left to argue that the "Commander In Chief" is not doing MORE.

(And some people wonder why I am verbose. It is because I try to capture all "jump off" points by which MY VIEWS can be contorted).


When A GROUP OF AMERICANS are so fused to LIVING VICARIOUSLY through a government official that they are so blinded to the ACTIONS OF THE GOVERNMENT - the same one's that they used to protest against - then we must focus upon WHAT THEY POSSESS INSIDE OF THEM that they can be taken so easily.

"Evangelical Power Hour"?

I don't even feel the need to contrast my agenda with that of BigotDedOne .

As I told a high school friend on FaceBook (who later asked me if I had a blog. ::) ) "I Focus On BIG PICTURE TRENDS" while others are TRANSACTIONAL (Transactionally offended or transactionally juiced) - , my good man CNu - what you interpret as "Evangelizing" - I see as CORRECTING THE DISCUSSION TO THE PROPER CONTEXT.

This is why more people are making personal attacks on White Right Wing Ann Coulter's looks after she did critical analysis of Michelle Obama's graduation speech, while missed the point that as they are connecting to this powerful woman's COMMON RACIAL VICTIMIZATION they were unpersuaded when I told them that people like BigoDedOne are PLEASED to see President Obama playing a part in the destruction of nations of color like Libya and Yemen in pursuit of American interests.

CNu said...

lol, merely rhetoric..., but see, I've accumulated the artifactual density to hold up my end of grown folks discussion. Ghadafi made some pointed remarks concerning Dimona, duplicitousness and death threats.

The reason you're verbose is because you don't really have a firm and fixed point you're proposing to make. You're just endlessly gassing for entertainment. Dood - everybody is becoming wise to your game and when that happens, you won't have any more game left to play.

Better start staking a position and defending it like it was your job.

lol, I wouldn't recommend it. BD has staked out a fixed position. An obviously incorrect and outmoded fixed position that he's demonstrated himself personally incapable of defending - but something straight-up, simple, and plain just the same.

You on the other hand...., well, you're all over the place and have demonstrated a commitment to hokum that's leaving either your internal logical consistency, or, your sincerity open to serious questioning.
