I am not going to belabor the point that “bin Laden” was a bad guy. No doubt he will soon surpass Hitler as the “worse than __________” argument goes. Among theological blogs the argument is whether it is right to rejoice in his death. And as usual, the Protestants go “bible verse shopping” to marshal their arguments.
As to rejoicing over his death, I don’t really care either way. As to the legality of the American mission in Pakistan, it’s a moot point. Very few things our government has done have ever been legal.
Before I advance the following consideration, I need to make clear that what happened on 9-11 was a deep tragedy. That is the context for the following remarks. And while I do not believe the “official guvmint story” on 9-11–I mean, everything the government tells us is a lie and we already know that–I am not so sure that the US government pulled it off. Were they aware of it? Probably.
Joseph Farrell has suggested that 9-11 was an “op within an op within an op.” More on what that could mean later. Contrary to the rednecks and neocons, I doubt bin Laden attacked us “because he hate our freedoms.” If you think about it, that is probably the stupidest line I have ever heard. I think he, or more likely the Nazi international elite, attacked us–or more precisely attacked the symbolism–of American power. Consider the “Twin Towers.” Given that the American system is deeply Masonic and deist at core, and that its current economic foundation rests on the manipulation of raw matter, whoever attacked us knew the symbolism.
