Bin Laden Revisted – Hollywood Style
Just in time for the holidays, the film presents the dumbed-down American public with yet another ample opportunity to wrap itself tightly in the flag and worship at the alter of Hollywood propaganda. With all the hype, and with the dutiful mainstream press falling in line to gush over the film, one wonders if anyone will care that it’s mostly all Pentagon-seeded garbage. For starters, the picture you see here of the folks at the White House pretending to be watching the Bin Laden raid, it was staged.
One wonders what tiny percentage of the Zero Dark Thirty audience will recollect or care, that against all odds and statistical actuary tables 22 members of the same “SEAL Team 6″ unit which was reportedly involved in the ‘Bin Laden raid’ met untimely deaths in a chopper explosion just weeks after the raid – in what many suspect was a “hit” to extinguish the truth. As Fox News reported:
Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during fighting in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans, most of them belonging to the same elite unit as the Navy SEALs who killed former Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden, U.S. officials said Saturday. It was the deadliest single loss for American forces in the decade-old war against the Taliban.
One wonders if the American movie going public knows or even cares that the “official” White House version of the events of the Bin Laden raid – has done nothing but change since the event was initially reported to the world.
Does the American public actually believe that the most prized target in the never ending ‘War on Terror’, Osama Bin Laden, was successfully located and killed by SEAL team 6, and then in some moment of uncharacteristic empathy for the religion of Islam and the entire Muslim world, the decision was made to fly his body to a waiting US warship so it could be tossed overboard “in accordance with Islamic tradition“? When exactly did the Pentagon start giving a damn about Islamic tradition?
Does not every single line in this ever-changing fiction stretch the limits of credulity? Can every single idiotic fable this government concocts be wiped from the pages of time with a slick Hollywood flick? Does anyone in this country care about truth? At all?
At this point in the story we might all be wise to recall the words of Karl Rove who summed up the current state of affairs in the United States quite well when he said the following:
“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
Zero Dark Thirty opens at a theater near you on December 19. Suspend your disbelief. And bring your flag.
