Murder Inc.

1,007 words

According to the US government, on Sunday, May 1, Osama Bin Laden was killed by a team of US commandos near Islamabad, Pakistan.

Three other men were killed in the raid, one of them a son of Bin Laden. A woman was also killed, but we are assured that she was killed only when used as a human shield by the bad guys. Our gallant American soldiers are better than other soldiers. Americans only kill women who get in the way.

Bin Laden’s body, we are told, was dumped in the ocean, making the whole story conveniently unverifiable. No mention was made of cement shoes.

“Justice has been done,” gloated President Barack Obama in a television appearance at the White House.

Well, I hate to interrupt the whooping and high-fiving for Team America, but “doing justice” in a civilized society means due process of law, including a presumption of innocence until guilt is proven. Osama Bin Laden was accused by our government, not tried and convicted. Is justice done when the police gun down a suspect so the government need not even bother trying to prove his guilt?

To be more precise, Osama Bin Laden, a former CIA asset, was accused of terrorism by the very government that once supported him. On the face of it, this has about the same probative value as the accusations of an embittered ex-wife.

And do we really believe that there was any thought given to taking Bin Laden alive? Since when is assassination justice? Even lynch mobs sometimes go through the motions of due process — a “kangaroo court” — before stringing up their hapless charges.

But of course if Osama Bin Laden had been allowed to testify in court, the results might have been quite embarrassing to the US government that once supported him and the Israeli government that certainly had advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks that Bin Laden was accused of masterminding.

The assassination of Bin Laden might be seen as poorly timed, given that the United States is currently engaged in piously lecturing and bombing Muslim countries over “human rights.” But then again, when isn’t the US hypocritically scolding and killing other people over human rights?

White Americans apparently are to be hectored about decades-old lynchings of blacks (and only blacks) until we all go hang ourselves to make the voices stop. But Osama Bin Laden can be accused by the government that once worked with him, tried in the media, lynched with a hail of bullets, and dropped in the ocean, and Barack Obama thinks that “justice has been done.” This is the kind of stupid talk that makes people want to see Obama’s law school transcripts. You’d think that the product of an interracial coupling would be more sensitive.

Earlier on the same day, NATO warplanes tried to assassinate Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi who was visiting the home of one of his sons in Tripoli. Gadhafi and his wife survived, but his son Seif al-Arab Gadhafi and three of his children, ages six months to two years, were killed.

This is the second time that Gadhafi has lost a child to a NATO (read US) assassination attempt. In 1986, Gadhafi’s daughter Hannah was killed when Ronald Reagan had Gadhafi’s home bombed. In that case, Reagan was trying to show Gadhafi that he could not sponsor terrorism with impunity, and Gadhafi seemed to take the point. The lesson seems to have been lost on subsequent American presidents, however.

I remember the killings of Saddam Hussein’s sons Uday and Qusay, as well as Qusay’s 14-year-old son Mustapha, in Mosul on July 22, 2003. The whole operation was staged like a mafia hit, and even discussed as such by military officials. An unnamed senior US military official in Iraq told UPI: “This is a very beneficial hit. They cannot feel anything other than doom, since if we can take down these guys, we can take down anybody.”

As I listened to the chorus of gloating from Bush and his flunkies Blair, Rumsfeld, etc., I had to wonder: If the 9/11 terrorist attacks meant anything, they meant that the United States is not invulnerable. Yet the entire course of America’s reaction to 9/11 was premised on invulnerability. Did George W. Bush ever give a thought to the possibility that if he went down that road, someday the enemy might retaliate, and Americans might be sifting his own daughters’ teeth out of ashes hoping to make a positive ID? Has the same thought ever crossed Barack Obama’s mind?

One of the most repugnant things about politicians are their little gentleman’s agreements not to assassinate one another. Instead, when they have conflicts, only the blood of the “little people” is to be spilled. But such agreements make perfect sense from the point of view of politicians. If they try to kill their opposite numbers and their families, their opposite numbers might try to kill them and their families back. And that is something they will not risk. Leaders do not regard themselves as expendable. And when leaders play by these rules, they prove that they really are leaders, not merely the expendable front men of hidden powers.

Thus, when heads of state start acting like terrorists, assassinating other heads of state and their families, you have to ask: Is it just hubris, a false sense of invulnerability that is begging for retribution, human or divine? Or are things not as they seem?

Can Gadhafi and Bin Laden be killed with impunity because they are just disposable flunkies rather than independent actors who can actually threaten to retaliate against their attackers?

Or is Barack Obama — who in one day has made himself the most hated man in the Muslim world twice over — himself just a disposable flunky, just a front man and a fall guy for the real killers operating with impunity behind the scenes?

Whatever the truth, I am upping my own security threat level to red, and I do not plan to fly in and out of Washington, D.C. and New York City for the foreseeable future.

    In my view “Government as Murder, Inc.” is a good thing — if it’s truly my government. Think handing Ernst Röhm a pistol and telling him to do the right thing, or sending Rommel down the road with a vial of poison….

    Well, on this matter, America is nothing if not consistent. The orgy of torturing, lynching, shooting, and God-only-knows what else of the vanquished at Nuremberg, etc., in the wake of the Allied victory in World War II, was an exercize in absolute monstrousness disguised as “justice,” that would make ‘ol Joe Stalin blush – and most Americans either couldn’t care less, or simply have no idea one way or the other.(and worse, many more have naught but praise the whole barbaric spectacle.)

    The same folks that figuratively fellate the so-called “greatest generation” are quite pleased to have a whole new crop of camouflaged paid-assassins to worship!

    Just keep up the mantra about “freedom” and “liberty” and hope no one notices the chains shackles around their necks. Thus far it has worked famously…

    Good piece Greg, and it has wide appeal which is doubly good. Hopefully such articles can help those ‘on the fence’ see a little common sense.

    I would like to suggest a film to any of those interested in 9/11, Osama, Israel/the Jews and the connection between them. The film is called Missing Links, which can be watched for free on the Missing Links website:

    http://www.911missinglinks.com/watch-movie/

    The film was directed by Michael Delaney, AKA Prothink (you may know some of his other work). It is really damning to the Jews, though it takes the “Israeli” angle for obvious strategic reasons. Mike speaks the truth on the Jew specifically in other videos and articles though.

    Enjoy!

    As much as I loathe Barack Obama, I always felt that his one upside was that he was not a war mongering lunatic like John McCain or George W Bush. I thought that whatever Obama’s deficiencies, he would at least keep the USA from becoming further embroiled in foreign wars and perhaps by his very presence in the White House knock a few White Americans out of their dogmatic slumber. It doesn’t look like either one of those things is working out as I’d hoped.

    Greg Johnson:

    Leaders do not regard themselves as expendable. And when leaders play by these rules, they prove that they really are leaders, not merely the expendable front men of hidden powers.

    It makes one wonder who the hidden powers really are on this planet. And by that I mean I would like to know the names of the actual individuals, not the groups they belong to such Jews, Bankers, Corporate Elites, Zionists, Mossad, the US Military Industrial Complex, or whoever.

    It’s pretty clear the US President is not at the top of the global oligarchy.

      Don’t get trapped in Lucy’s Rules Football.

      The names keep changing, and we all know people who run down the rabbit hole of metaconspiracy – Bilderbergers! INSIDERS! Trilateralists! Rothschilds! Guelph! – to end up burned out, and reduced to helplessness.

      Most of what THEY do to US, WE allow them to do, to us.

      My new focus is on effectiveness – what WE can DO about “it” – the metapolitical project.

      Money donated to Counter-Currents helps immensely.

      Bob Whitaker’s Mantra is an excellent starting place.

      Covington has the Analytical Framework to get us there.

      Lew:

      If my comment above is crisp, it’s because people discuss metaconspiracies to the point they are (1) overwhelmed by the metaconspiracy’s magnitude, and (2) compensate for their learned helplessness by a feeling of superiority – “I KNOW all about the metaconspiracy. We are helpless before them.”

      They never matter, because they play “Lucy’s Rules” Football, and never make contact with something that matters.

      Why are our Opponents effective?

      They have a relentless metapolitical focus.

      Simple as that.

      With few exceptions, we lacked a metapolitical focus.

      This must change.

      Now, we know how.

        Fourmyle, yes, those are excellent observations. Your comments are always outstanding, BTW, some of the best I’ve seen in years of perusing sites with excellent contributors. I get your point and do agree we need to do what we can and avoid the conspiracy rabbit hole.

          Thanks for the kind words.

          Greg Johnson defined the metastrategic imperative.

          Covington said, “We have always thought too small.” Worse, it was the wrong thoughts.

          We uncritically made their Dreams OUR Dreams, taking the bait suggested to us (“Lucy’s Rules Football”). “They” suggested we become a useful Opposition; entertaining, amusing, impotent and ineffective.

          The metapolitical project inspires a brutal discipline; to address substantial issues, in an Adult manner, after Rockwell and Covington.

          We will define, accurately, (1) WHAT is wrong, and (2) WHAT can be done about it, on OUR Terms.

    This business of killing children and grandchildren begs the questions : is criminality hereditary ? and does it not forbid any form of reparation?

    Théophane Vénard went to the Tonkin as a catholic missionary. There he was martyred by local king Tu-Duc in 1861 (without entering into the complex issue of martyrdom and its purpose, T. Vénard looked for and knew he would be martyred). Today, among king Tu-Duc’s direct descendant one of them is priest for the Fraternité Sacerdotale Saint Pie X (followers of Mgr Lefebvre), and three of them are sisters for the same Fraternité.

    Primitiveness and hypocrisy appear to be the trademarks of those who pull the strings

    A few questions well worth asking.

    Indeed, these leaders are mere puppets. President Sarkozy’s attack on Libya does not serve French people nor the French cause but others’ cause.

    I do expect retribution on French territory – which seems logical – and do worry for people who are still there and have absolutely nothing to do in the business.

    It’s interesting to see that counter-jihadists are not happy either. They understand that this is no victory for the West:

    This morning Peter Gadiel, president of 9/11 Families for a Secure America, presented a voice of sanity. Though I do not know his full views on the “War on Terror,” he correctly stated that the death of bin Laden is merely a symbolic victory. The failed policies of the Clinton and Bush administrations are simply continuing under the current one. Greg Johnson is wise in upping his own security level.

    To the consternation of the CNN host, Gadiel rightly described the jubilation of the new generational myopic thinking college age celebrators at the White House and in Times Square last night as a “circus.” The BBC reported that chants of “Four more Years!” could be heard, and signs of “Latinos for Obama” signs could be seen throughout the coverage.

    U.S. intelligence officials declare there are only 100 to 500 al Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    Secretary of State Clinton said that, “We must take this opportunity to renew our resolve and redouble our effort,” and in her fiendish manner cited the death of bin Laden as an event which will spearhead the continuing “great movements toward freedom and democracy” in the Middle East and elsewhere. Wishful thinking? Yes. This is a clearly a declaration that the imperial hubris of American foreign policy will spread to Syria, Iran, throughout Africa and “elsewhere”….

    Indeed we will have four more years of wars, bombings, assassinations, and killings, as the “Democratic” college kids who denounced Bush are cheering louder and more fanatically pulled by the strings of the neoconservative war puppeteers.

    Silly kids.

      Well said. But it is not just silly kids who are cheering for Team America. People who know better are doing so as well. The desire to identify with a winning team is so strong in people, that racially aware whites will cheer on the system that is destroying us and our future. The killing of Osama Bin Laden, if it even happened, is not a victory of “our” system serving our interests. It is a victory of “their” system serving their interests, the same system that is destroying us.

    From what has appeared on New Zealand Television, hordes of crazed Yanks are taking to the streets and chanting and screaming with glee about the death of Bin Laden in a manner somewhat reminiscent of the way militant muslims get frenetic in street demonstrations for their causes, which Westerners tend to regard as displays of primitive religious fanaticism.

    Among the differences however is that militant Muslims tend to sacrifice everything for their cause and are more than just big mouths, whereas how many of these jubilant Americans and their counterparts in other countries are willing to do jack shit for any cause other than their own petty hedonism? Many New Zealanders are no better, with radio talkback callers saying they’ll have a beer to celebrate the death of this “bastard.” (sic). Having a beer is pretty much the most many New Zealanders would do in any circumstance.

    It is typical of the lack of chivalry in the decadent West, the last manifestation of which was perhaps during World War I when airmen buried their downed adversaries with full military honours.

    I find it implausible that the USA did not know all movements of Bin Laden and anyone else they wish to target. I suggest that it is more likely they took him out precisely at the time they regarded to be most opportune politically.

    What can also be said is that he died a warrior’s death – the way he would have wished to die. As for Obama and his ilk, no matter where in the world they reside: may the pox strike every scurvy one of the gloating scum.

    I agree 100% that the murders of Osama ben Laden and son and Gadaffi’s son and grandchildren can only have the gravest consequences for the “civilized world.” The unseemly disposal of ben Laden’s body by dumping in the ocean only magnifies the illicit nature of the attack outside Islamabad. Osama should have had a trial and been punished, at most, by banishment to a distant island, like Napoleon. American government is beginning to look like a chimpanzee tribe, vying for dominance against the other, unrelated chimpanzees in the jungle.

    “Abdallah b. Ghalib said when he challenged the enemy: Why would I want to converse with this world? For the perceptive, there is no good in it. By God, if it were not for my love of facing sleeplessness, laying on my bed with my forehead to You, walking between the platoons and the squadrons during the night, and seeking Your reward and the in-dwelling of Your favor, I would desire to depart from this world and its people. Then he broke the sheath of his sword, advanced and fought until he was killed.” – al-Tamini, Kitab al-mihan, 232

    Don’t worry Greg. I am sure that the assassinated heads of state and their families that you are fretting over were all Nazis. Or worse – racists!
