Osama bin Laden was a CIA asset who died in December, 2001. “Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader,” Fox News reported on December 26, 2001. “Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his grave was made as per his Wahabi belief.”
If ignorance of the facts were actually painful, perhaps we would get fewer gushers of drivel like that US taxpayers received from Senator Menendez in this encounter with the corporate media.
You have to shake your head and ask yourself, what on earth could have prompted Menendez to make that statement, in light of the fact this guy has to know Bin Laden is dead?!?
