What To Believe? : Bin Laden book ’contradicts official account’
2012 08 29

By Elizabeth Leafloor | RedIceCreations.com

A new book has been released entitled ’No Easy Day’, written by a former Navy SEAL. It "reveals bin Laden was unarmed and already dead when troops rushed into his room in the Abottabad, Pakistan compound."

The BBC reports:

The book says Bin Laden was shot dead as soon as he looked out of his bedroom as Seals rushed up the stairs, AP says.

But US officials have stated he was shot only once he had ducked back into the bedroom.

They have said his actions suggested he might be reaching for a weapon.

The alleged contradiction will add to existing controversy over the book.

It was written under a pseudonym, Mark Owen, but only hours after the book’s existence came to light the author’s real name was revealed by Fox News.

Military officials also say the publishers failed to submit the book to the Pentagon to ensure it discloses no secret information - part of normal protocol - and are scrutinising its contents.


The book was scheduled for release September 11, 2012 (how’s that for timing?), but the date has been changed to the September 4, "after a surge of advance orders".

In this obfuscated and knotty issue of the alleged killing of Osama bin Laden [OBL] it’s good to get any information released, through official channels or otherwise. But any critical thinker will come to the conclusion that none of the narratives at this point are trustworthy. Accounts of that day were muddied, conflicting, and wrong from the first moment of release. They continue to be to this day.

There is no more proof today that OBL was ’taken down’ and thrown into the sea than there was when he was officially declared dead in May of 2011.

Questions still remain about the bloody bodies filmed, the accounts from the women that were allegedly present, the presence of the downed ’stealth’ chopper, OBL’s ’burial at sea’, and another helicopter crash which allegedly killed members of the same SEAL unit that was involved in the raid. Why was OBL not detained, rather than gunned down?

There also exists the possibility that OBL died in 2001, as reported by media sources at the time. If that’s true, then what can we believe about the subsequent tapes ’he’ released? Who benefited from OBL’s continued ghostly presence for a decade? What exactly were the special forces doing in Abbottabad in May? Who was killed, and why?

The excerpts released from the book make it unclear who exactly shot OBL. Is this new account suggesting OBL was assassinated before they entered the room? By whom? Was he killed by an unidentified sniper before he could be detained?

From a DailyMail article:
Owen wrote that a member of the elite squad saw the terror leader as he ducked into his bedroom, and the soldiers, who were climbing stairs to the third floor, followed.

He said: ’We were less than five steps from getting to the top when I heard suppressed shots. BOP. BOP. I couldn’t tell from my position if the rounds hit the target or not. The man disappeared into the dark room.’

While various media outlets reported that bin Laden was armed and showed no intention of going quietly, the soldier wrote that the notorious terror boss was already taking his last breaths.

Owen writes that as bin Laden lay dying, he and another commando ’trained our lasers on his chest and fired several rounds. The bullets tore into him, slamming his body into the floor until he was motionless.’



While the ’unauthorized’ book seems to challenge the official narrative and cause controversy, there’s no real justification to believe any of the stories, unless and until there’s actual PROOF presented, and not just exciting and dramatic reenactments.

Quibbling over details of unsupported accounts as the anniversary of 9/11 approaches brings the public focus once more to terrorism, September 11, the military, OBL, and all the other emotional triggers. Add to the mix a contentious US presidential race, and the disturbing threats of war with Iran, and a scared populace will put their faith in the powers-that-be. The problem-reaction-solution formula ensues.


Pentagon admits it has no photo evidence of Bin Laden’s death, nor video of the event. What were high ranking government officials watching in the situation room?



The TRUE story of Osama bin Laden and his life and death will undoubtedly remain an unresolved mystery - a mystery that acts as a malignant tumor, blackening the legitimacy of the country’s leadership, consuming America’s reputation on the world stage, and becoming swollen with the suspicion and misgivings of the public.

This is what was reported May 2, 2011 by a credulous press:
Administration aides said the operation was so secretive that no foreign officials were informed in advance, and only a small circle inside the U.S. government was aware of what was unfolding half a world away.


That’s probably more true than we know.
