This is pretty incredible:
Seymour Hersh: Bin Laden Raid “One Big Lie”

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh says that the raid which killed Osama Bin Laden in 2011 is “one big lie” and that “not one word” of the Obama administration’s narrative on what happened is true.
Seymour Hersh: Bin Laden Raid One Big Lie 270913bin

In a wide-ranging interview published today by the Guardian, Hersh savages the US media for failing to challenge the White House on a whole host of issues, from NSA spying, to drone attacks, to aggression against Syria.

On the subject of the Navy Seal raid that supposedly resulted in the death of the Al-Qaeda terror leader, Hersh remarked, “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true.”

Hersh added that the Obama administration habitually lies but they continue to do so because the press allows them to get away with it.

“It’s pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama],” Hersh told the Guardian.

The raid that supposedly led to Bin Laden’s death has been shrouded in mystery for over two years. Speculation that the Obama administration may have embellished or outright lied about the true account of what happened has persisted, mainly because the White House has refused to publicly release images of Bin Laden’s body.

Although the White House said the corpse was immediately “buried at sea” in line with Islamic tradition, it quickly emerged that this was not standard practice.

Numerous analysts have claimed that Bin Laden had in fact been dead for years and that the raid on his alleged compound in Pakistan was little more than a stunt.

Other questions also persist, such as why the narrative and timeline of the raid has changed multiple times, why the White House initially claimed that “situation room” photos showed Obama watching the raid live when in fact there was a blackout on the live feed, and whyneighbors in the immediate area surrounding the compound said with absolute certainty that they had never seen Bin Laden and that they knew of no evidence whatsoever to suggest he lived there.

During the rest of the Guardian interview, which is well worth reading in its entirety, Hersh lambastes the corporate press and particularly the New York Times, which he says spends “so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would.”

Hersh’s solution is to shut down news networks like NBC and ABC and fire 90% of mainstream editors, replacing them with real journalists who are outsiders and not afraid to speak truth to power.

“The republic’s in trouble, we lie about everything, lying has become the staple,” concluded Hersh.

  2. Since Gulf War I, the press has only been “allowed” to report in a controlled way. Ask a tough question and you are out, as in three strikes. Since 1990 there has been only two sources for newsfeeds- Reuters and AP. Both paid for bitches of the system and who will never bite the hand that feeds them.

    Anyone still watching them has a serious case of “normalcy bias”. Not to mention the Supreme Court has ruled they have “no duty to report the truth.” Think about that.

    Obama Man could commit ten unlawful bombing raids-Bin Laden-Benghazi-IRS gate-Fast & Furious Watergates and they won’t go after them like they did Nixon. Oh wait….

    • Even those two, AP and Reuters do on occasion put some damning stuff out but it never goes very far.

      I would have hoped that Reuters would have a fire lit under them after their reporters were murdered. If Reuters did anything about it, it was subdued enough I never heard about it.

    • The guys who publicized the My Lai massacre were feted as heroes.

      Fast forward… and Bradley Manning is a “terrorist.”

      And from the regime’s perspective, I suppose he is…

  3. Of course the whole story was a lie. It was a blatant and obvious lie from the get go. The deaths of those who supposedly did the mission shortly there after just reinforce it. The american public believe it or at least pretend to, to be socially acceptable.

    I declared OBL dead in 2006. Why? It was widely reported that he was dying of end stage renal disease in 2001. On US government 3 times a week dialysis, life expectancy is five years. That’s with US government 1960s level, cost effective, clinical treatment. OBL did not have access to anything even close to that. This means his body would suffer far more complications, far more stress, and he would die even sooner. Someone could live on indefinitely with the right sort of daily treatment, but OBL didn’t get that. Americans don’t get it either when they end up on government care.

    Osama Been Dead. Dead for years before Obama took office. Perhaps dead before sept 2001 which made him the perfect boogie man.

    Site issues: Login refuse here and at clovercam. Clovercam is still showing the hacker’s screen. Hackers like this apparently have nothing better to do.

    • Yeah, I still have a lot of work to do. Thanks Brent! Shit sucks because I have so many project to get done over the weekends and this shit aggravates the fuck out of me!

      • Just in case: I wasn’t trying to get on anyone… just reporting what I noticed. I can’t login in so I don’t know what other people have mentioned. I’ve found the more eyes looking for damage the faster it’s found and fixed.

        I’ve run my own stuff for many years… Once someone hacked into my game back in the early 90s. I can’t remember if that was time I had to fix it at 300 baud or 2400 baud because when I wasn’t at school I did not have decent connectivity. I had to search floppy disks for back up files, then code them back up to date, then code up additional security…. good times… good times… as they say 😉

          • If these hackers are bored 14-year-olds, it wouldn’t bother me nearly as much. But I believe it’s being done by elements trying to screw with any site and anyone that does not toe the line.

            I read a news story the other day about MSM sites eliminating their comments sections – so that the articles (and point of view) aren’t challenged. Apparently, many of the pro-statists/pro-authoritarian pieces they’ve been peddling have been generating enormously overwhelmingly negative comments.

            Can’t have that!

          • “I doubt the authoritarians at facebook approve of those queers”

            Unless faCIAbook is sponsoring/hosting them and other worm breeders like them. I cringed when one well meaning user here announced that he had established a facebook presence for epautos.

            I’m gonna saddle my hobbyhorse again:

            This shit starts with feeding the trolls. Trolls keep coming back to the sites where they are fed, and I’ve never seen such troll feeding as we have here. Trolls bring their pals to sites where they are fed.

            The favorite pet troll, whose screen name has been accorded iconic status in the vocabulary of the site, quickly logged on after the hack and bumped up the old ‘epa is dead’ thread to post a statement that the site should be closed. That shows that he had knowledge of the hack and possibly had helped instigate the attack.

            I know that several users here love to hone their chops by posting their lovingly reasoned responses to the pet trollturd’s blatherings. Everyone who does so, and I’m guilty as well, can see the result of the practice:

            DOS attacks and takeover hacks.

            I suggest that we no longer feed ANY trolls, and that any of us who use faCIAbook, restrain ourselves from linking to epautos from that troll/hacker breeding ground.

        • “I wasn’t trying to get on anyone… ” Naw dood, I didn’t take it that way at all. Shit is just ridiculous to me. We get hacked on fucking weekends every fucking time! Whoever is doing this knows me and my moves intimately. I have three jobs. My regular 9-5, this site, and a concrete statuary sideline. The only time I have for the concrete stuff is on the weekends. When these fuckers do this it costs me. I think it’s obvious this ain’t some phantom asshole. It’s someone who truly has an issue with what we’re doing here. I’m really kind of pissed at myself for not doing daily backups. My most recent backup is from the 23rd. As far as I can tell the only thing we lost on this install is the entire user list and a few boiler plate directories and files. I was able to replace the lost directories and files, but not the users list. So now I’m asking myself whether we want to loose all the fucking comments from this past week, or just roll with what we have. If we roll with what we have everyone will have to re-register and do their whole avatar bit, but that’s all.

          FYI: Our vBulletin (Forum) software is super stable and has yet to be seriously hacked.

            • Hi Gary,

              “Dom, how much does it cost to have one of those monitoring services do the grunt work to protect the site from attacks?”

              Dom and I had this conversation last night – we’re looking into it.

              We’re still struggling to balance the time/effort/expense necessary to keep this site up in a post-Google environment. I’ll post something about this shortly.

          • Dom, I would re-register to the main page but can’t find the old sign in/register entry box. The forum is a great platform. It beats the hell out of this WP commentary application.

      • The beauty of WordPress is that it has all these available themes and options to customize your site. The bane of it is that there are legions of assholes well versed in it’s weaknesses and attack it vigorously. Your culprit is likely some assinine plug-in. Watch out!

  4. Something is definitely wrong with the site as far as posting is concerned. The top page is not updating. Back on topic… As far as I remember there were stories that people in that Pakistani neighborhood recall a helicopter crashing. Funny how all of that got all too typically swept under the carpet.

  5. This is weird. I see a few other users commenting, but I can’t log in here. No problem logging into the forum, but apparently none of the regulars are logged in there right now.

    I did manage to catch one comment from Dom about a hijack of the site, before the “What’s Happening” list moved on to newer comments. Ah, well.
