JournalistÂ Seymour Hersh has just dropped a major bombshell about the Bin Laden raid that transpired in 2011,Â afterÂ Obama rushed to give himself theÂ complete credit, thereby securing his reelectionÂ bid.
According to Hersh’sÂ account, the Obama administration was not flying solo, but had a great amount of support from the Pakistani government for the military operation. One of Hersh’s sources within the Pakistani government, points out several inconsistencies with Obama’s account of events, and the timeline that senior intelligence officials within the Pakistani government lay out.
â€œThis spring I contacted Durrani and told him in detail what I had learned about the bin Laden assault from American sources: that bin Laden had been a prisoner of the ISI at the Abbottabad compound since 2006; that Kayani and Pasha knew of the raid in advance and had made sure that the two helicopters delivering the Seals to Abbottabad could cross Pakistani airspace without triggering any alarms; that the CIA did not learn of bin Ladenâ€™s whereabouts by tracking his couriers, as the White House has claimed since May 2011, but from a former senior Pakistani intelligence officer who betrayed the secret in return for much of the $25 million reward offered by the US, and that, while Obama did order the raid and the Seal team did carry it out, many other aspects of the administrationâ€™s account were false.â€
â€œOsama was cowering and retreated into the bedroom,â€ Hersh said, putting a hole into the narrative that there was a firefight.Â â€œTwo shooters followed him and opened up. Very simple, very straightforward, very professional hit.â€
Even more shocking, is Hersh’s claim that Bin Laden was never even buried at sea,Â which would be yet another blatant lie perpetrated upon the America people.
â€œHigh-level lying nonetheless remains the modus operandi of U.S. policy, along with secret prisons, drone attacks, Special Forces night raids, bypassing the chain of command, and cutting out those who might say no.”
It’s unfathomable how this administration continues to blatantly lie to the American people, all while maintaining a straight face. But at this point, does it really surprise anyone?
