Seymour Hersh on the Killing of Osama Bin Laden and the War in Syria



…by Jonas E. Alexis


Let me start by saying that there is enough good information and ammunition in Seymour Hersh’s new book to get things moving. In The Killing of Osama Bin Laden, which was released last month, Hersh drags the political cat out of the bag by saying that there was a

“series of lies about the killing of Osama bin Laden,” and that in 2013 Obama “sought congressional approval to bomb Syria, while concealing the fact he had been put on notice that the nerve agent allegedly used by Assad didn’t match any of those known to be in Syria’s arsenal.”[1]

“The White House’s story,” Hersh continues, “might have been written by Lewis Carroll: would bin Laden, target of a massive international manhunt, really decide that a resort town forty miles from Islamabad would be the safestplace to live and command al-Qaida’s operations?”

Of course not. In order for that theory to fly, Bin Laden had to be one of the dumbest terrorists to ever live. But we all know that that’s not the case. Even the burial of ben Laden at sea, says Hersh, was a hoax.

Hersh also argues that Erdogan has been a strong supporter of terrorist groups such as al-Nusra and ISIS, which sought to obliterate the Syrian government from time immemorial. VT has been reporting on this since the war started. Hersh then asks,

“How could such a high-minded person endorse, as Obama has, the compilation of hit lists made up of suspected terrorists around the world, including American citizens, to be targeted and killed without judicial process”?[2]

Hersh is a good journalist, and we all wish we had people like him around. Back in 1991, he did a great job detailing how Israel obtained nuclear weapons without international law or the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

When U.S. officials finally learned about Israel’s nuclear weapons—more than one hundred of them—they were completely shocked because they had underestimated Israel. The officials admitted when they first saw some of those warheads,

“Our thought was ‘Holy shit!’ How could we have been so wrong? We always said, ‘So the Israelis got ten warheads? Okay. So what? Anybody can build those.’ All of a sudden we learned they’d become sophisticated. It blew everybody’s mind.’”[3]

Others in the Reagan administration were “paranoid.” One official declared, “It was kept away from the people at Z Division [a special group that provides the United States Intelligence Community with information about foreign nuclear programs].”[4]

But throughout his new book, Hersh excluded the Israeli or Neoconservative influence in Washington, and this is a low blow on the entire book because Obama would not have taken some extreme and really unnecessary measures in the Middle East without the Israeli regime dictating to him what ought to be done. Hersh writes,

“It’s now evident, fifteen years after the 9/11 attacks, that Obama’s foreign policy has maintained many of the core elements of the Global War on Terror initiated by his predecessor—assassinations, drone attacks, heavy reliance on special forces, covert operations and, in the case of Afghanistan, the continued use of American ground forces in combat.”[5]

True. But Hersh must know that Obama’s predecessor was driven by the Neoconservative ideology, which we all know by now is a Jewish political and essentially Talmudic movement and which has given us nothing but death, misery, and bloodshed in the Middle East.

This is not a conspiracy theory, as some would irrationally charge. This position has been maintained by mainstream scholars and writers of various stripes.[6]

For example, Neoconservative luminary Francis Fukuyama of Stanford (formerly of Johns Hopkins) compares the Neoconservative movement to Leninism. Neoconservatism, according to Fukuyama, is the reincarnation to some extent of both Leninism and Bolshevism.[7]

Fukuyama’s observation makes sense when even Irving Kristol proudly admitted that the “honor I most prized was the fact that I was a member in good standing of the [Trotskyist] Young People’s Socialist League (Fourth International).”[8]

Kristol was not just a former Trotskyist, but a former neo-Marxist and neo-socialist.[9] And this neoconservative movement, as Jewish writer Sidney Blumenthal has shown, found its political and intellectual ideology “in the disputatious heritage of the Talmud.”[10]

This is just historical scholarship, and Hersh cannot wiggle out of this equation without thoughtful examination. Hersh must also know that Bill Kristol once called Obama “a born again Neocon.” To ignore all of that and then jump on Obama as the main culprit in this pernicious activity is somewhat politically dishonest.

Hersh argues that Obama still views Russia as an enemy, but again the Neocons for the past two years or so have been propounding exactly that. Jewish Neocons such as Ben Shapiro and Pamela Geller were even siding with the Trotroskyite and pornographic group the Pussy Riot because they vowed to create violent revolution in Russia!

 To his credit, Hersh meticulously reports that independent examination revealed that the chemical weapons that were used in Syria “didn’t match the batches known to exist in the Syrian army’s chemical weapons arsenal.” And the sad part is that both the Obama administration and other U.S. officials knew this. A former senior U.S. intelligence official told Hersh,

“We knew there were some in the Turkish government who believed they could get Assad’s nuts in a vice by dabbling with a sarin attack inside Syria—and forcing Obama to make good on his red line threat.”

The Obama administration also knew that al-Nusra “maintained a sarin production cell…US intelligence has long known that al-Qaida experimented with chemical weapons, and has a video of one of its gas experiments with dogs.”

Both Turkey and Saudi Arabia, says Hersh, were in the business of obtaining chemical weapons, sneaking them into Syria and passing them to the so-called Syrian rebels, who were in direct contacts with jihadists.

“Last May, more than ten members of the al-Nusra Front were arrested in southern Turkey with what local police told the press were two kilograms of sarin.”

Funding for all these covert operations came from Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the CIA, MI6, etc. One former intelligence official declared, “The United States was no longer in control of what the Turks were relaying to the jihadists.”

So, since the jihadists were losing the war by 2012, “Erdogan was pissed and felt he was hanging on the vine. It was his money and the cut-off was seen as a betrayal.”

It was understandable, then, that the establishment cooked up the idea that Assad was using chemical weapons. Obama held a dinner in Washington and invited Erdogan, obviously to talk about the situation in the war zone.

“The meal was dominated by the Turks’ insistence that Syria had crossed the red line and their complaints that Obama was reluctant to do anything about it.”

To his credit, Obama cut Erdogan’s representative off twice, which finally angered Erdogan. “‘But your red line has been crossed!’” he said, waving his finger at Obama.

To his credit, Obama defused Erdogan by telling his representative, “We know what you’re doing with the radicals in Syria.” In other words, Obama was getting exhausted with the mad man in Turkey.

It was clear to the intelligence community and even to some doctors at the scene that the so-called rebels used the chemical weapons and then blamed the act on the Assad regime. One U.S. official declared then, “We now know it was a covert action planned by Erdogan’s people to push Obama over the red line.” Erdogan is still supporting ISIS. It has been reported again that:

“Thousands of ISIS associates have been routinely crossing into Syria aided by contacts in Turkey, phone calls tapped by Ankara security forces and handed to the media by opposition MP Erem Erdem reveal. He accuses the government of a massive cover-up.”[11]

Furthermore, why would Assad use gas on his own people when he was winning the war by a landslide? Was Assad that dumb? Didn’t he know that Obama had previously said that using chemical weapons was a “red line”?

These are some of the questions that will never be answered by the Zionist narrative. But again Hersh could never tell his readers that Israel was also behind this covert operation. In fact, Israel prefers terrorist groups over the Assad government.[12]

Thankfully, the Obama administration did not go to war in Syria, and you can thank Russia later. Russia has single-handedly exposed Turkey as a terrorist cell and has castrated its diabolical plan in Syria. Obviously Turkey has gone mad because it has no political teeth. The country seems to have taken revenge on Syrian boys by raping them as they tried to find refuge in the country.[13]

In short, Hersh should be praised for writing The Killing of Osama Bin Laden, but he should also be reprimanded for not pointing out the real joker behind the political curtain. And we all know who is really laughing behind that curtain now.
