In 2011, a group of Navy SEALS stormed an enclosure in the Pakistani city of Abbotabad and killed Osama Bin Laden, the man the United States had been chasing since before the devastating attacks of 9/11. The news did much to boost Obama's first term and played a major part in his re-election victory in the following year. Except the story of that night that was presented to the world was a lie, and the evidence of what actually went on has been covered up.
At the same time, the true story of the US's involvement in the Syrian civil wars has been conducted behind a diplomatic curtain. The White House has turned a blind eye to Turkey's involvement in stirring up the conflict. Meanwhile, open brutality and ruthless subterfuge-such as the Sarin gas attack on Damascus-has been allowed to go on unpunished. As master investigative journalist Seymour Hersh shows in this explosive book, this was just one of many lies that the world's leaders now tell us with seeming impunity. How far do these lies go? And what are their purpose?

This story about Dustbin Laden is pure fiction. He suffered of kidney inefficiency and was treated in American institutions (in secret). My guess if he was dead of kidney failure long before allegedly his location was stormed (in a cemetery?). He played a role in fabricating pretexts for the invasion of Afghanistan, which was planned and published as a plan in 1990 in "Project for a new American century" by the Wolfowitz group. There they said they would invade first Afghanistan, then Iraq, then Syria, and then Iran. Turkey is one of the main allies of America, if they helped create the Islamic state, then it may be part of the Wolfowitz plan. I saw a video of a lecture of Mr. Michel Chossudovski, professor of economics at Ottawa Univ., and he said the Americans called Dustbin Laden an "intelligence asset." And it's not believable that before being killed, Laden would have said, as the media said somewhere, that Laden told his family to live in peace and well in America. First he would attack America spectacularly and then, tell his own family to love America ind live in it? Prof. Chossudovski said more than I quoted here, on the video, but it's so strong, it would not be allowed to tell the public - he referred to info from Dan Rather, and it would mean that the Dustbin Laden attack was a sham. And Cheyney profited from the Afghan war, bec. his company was the general supplier, even of food, for the troops in Afghanistan. I saw him say on TV, directly into the camera that he was proud to be the supplier of that war. Isn't it a conflict of interest? When Paul Martin became PM, he transferred ownership of his shipping company to his sons, for this reason. So, this Dustbin Laden elimination story is bogus, for sure.

I seriously take issue with some fallacious or specious comments under the Publishers Weekly Opinion - - more on that later!
Hersh does excellent work on this, exposing further 9/11 lives, this time under Obama's administration. It doesn't get a full rating as it is an almost arbitrary issue among the far more serious ones: Robert Parry, resigned or forced out former AP investigative journalist [for printing the actual news and now works out of www.consortiumnews.com], exactly described the physical location where they would find bin Laden ten or eleven years ago, yet it took the CIA and other agencies how many years to finally locate him?????
A most important point among many others.
[The US gov't spent $5 billion to overthrow the Ukrainian government, while any fool realizes the absolute strategic importance of Crimea to Russia, just as America isn't going to allow Cuba to be occupied by Russians, et cetera. PW is pushing the propaganda of this administration.]
