“Conspiracy theorists” have been providing aid and comfort to al Qaeda by simply asking questions? investigating beyond the BS that the MSM reports from their “official sources”? That seems to be the implication.
The U.S. government is releasing this week the list of English language texts that were recovered from Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound after the U.S. raid that killed the al Qaeda leader in 2011…
“In terms of the materials that are there, some of the things that we’ve found to be of note were that Bin Laden was probably an avid conspiracy theorist,” Buzz Feed
It was bound to happen.
The propagandists who brought us the “death of bin Laden story” 1.0 and 2.0 (with Sy Hersh) have decided to finally go for broke by associating some of the biggest names in investigative journalism, critics of our imperial wars overseas and “conspiracy theorists” to the dreaded Osama bin Laden.
Basically anyone who writes or says anything bad about the glorious Big Brother party that is developing here and in Britain are on bin Laden’s “DIGITAL” reading list. His “digital” bookshelf.
What does that mean?
That means the powers that be have decided to exploit the new Sy Hersh bullshit story about “the truth” of the raid on the bin Laden compound (or maybe that’s why Sy’s stupid story came out in the first place) by releasing what they claim they found on disk drives or memory sticks. The fact that they are digital means they wont be able to find bin Laden’s actual fingerprints on an actual book of any kind.
Of course if you notice that, you’re a “conspiracy theorist”
In short, they can put any book or writing they want on that list. Anything they wish to be viewed in a certain light.
The English language list is republished below the fold and on it you will find a number of critics of our Global War of Terrorism along with folks like Bev Harris (exposed electronic voting machine rigging), John Perkins (economic hit-man), Michael Ruppert (great work in Crossing the Rubicon), David Ray Griffin (outstanding work on 9/11), Michel Chossudovsky (anti-globalization), Eustace Mullins (exposing the Federal Reserve) and the usual slate of unpopular investigative journalists and activists like Greg Palast, William Blum and Noam Chomsky.
These apparently are today’s leading thought criminals.
It really is the beginning of a modern day book banning movement I suppose.
I can see Fox News ranting about how the “conspiracy theorists” are providing aid and comfort to the likes of bin Laden and how he was probably using their work to further radicalize new al CIAdah members across the Middle East.
As obvious as this bit of disinformation is with regard to a new effort to demonize real investigative journalism, what might be more telling is who is NOT on the list.
There is nothing from Di$info Jone$ on that list and I thought he was King of All Conspiracy Theorists. I guess he’s just a shill.
There is nothing from Seymour Hersh either. I guess his latest story bought him a reprieve of sorts.
Our friend Jeremy Scahill (I call him Scaghill) is absent from that “to be banned” list as well and he chimed in real early on this story…
Nothing from Matt Taibbi, Amy Goodman, Glenn Beck, Steven Jones (nanothermite), Judy Wood (ray beams from space), Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Ron Paul, Glenn Greenwald, “Edward Snowden” or Hillary Clinton for that matter.
The list is below the fold. It’s pretty obvious why they made it. Of course “truth tellers” like Scaghill seem oblivious to that obvious reality. It pays to be obtuse in ‘Merika these days.
