The truth always conceils itself
No matter when and how long we try to cover it.

The big secret makes political scandal: Navy SEAL Book reveals: ‘Bin Laden Had No Intention Of Fighting’. This was a title on A statement opens hundreds of questions in terms of human rights, ethical standards, and justice. Last year,

Osama bin Laden was killed by the SEAL American Team,

People were divided into supporting or criticizing the operation. We bring here two comments as examples: This comment noted immediately after the assassination of bin Laden last years: I leave as it is without correction, or editing,  it reads:

“WHAT the hell is wrong with people? The thought of us murdering anyone is hateful and turns my stomach. But do people just not remember or understand? The Cole? Lockerbie? 9/11? HUNDREDS of INNOCENT people from countries all over the world, of all nationalities and religions were slaughtered. ON OUR OWN soil! The Pentagon was attacked. They were heading for the White House!”

My comment: May be you’re right, but, Hay…Hiroshima… Nagasaki ….etc. are just a reminder. But your attitude may change if you ask: who benefits from the 9/11 after Huntington conflict theory, the Oil producers? I don’t think so, plus, killing the man is alright under the law, when Osama bin Laden was killed, the White House made very clear it wasn’t an assassination. But he was unarmed. The truth was never revealed, until ‘No easy Day” book publication show up.

Under the title of the book on Kindle edition, this statement was written: “This brisk first-person account by a Navy SEAL is an important historical work, though it, like the mission itself, is not flawless.” Followed by the author’s note reads: “Thank you for your . My readers mean the world to me and I trust that the ideas will keep flowing to provide maximum entertainment. Enjoy.” I wonder what enjoyment in killing stories, considered as a patriotic act? While they are assassination of human rights and justice.

The war in which we find ourselves today – honesty should compel us to call it the “war for the American way of life” – was joined in 1980. With the overthrow of Iran’s shah and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the full-scale militarization of US Middle Eastern policy commenced. Jimmy Carter’s promulgation of the Carter Doctrine committed the United States to using all necessary means – diplomatic code for threatening to employ force – to prevent any hostile power from controlling the Gulf. What followed was an ever-escalating penchant for US military interventionism, to which Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and Bill Clinton each contributed in turn. Rather than simply preventing others from dominating the Gulf, we sought willy-nilly to dominate it ourselves.”

One may wonder according to one reader, was bin Laden armed or not? What woman served as a human shield? Who actually was killed beyond the main target? The administration deserves mountains of credit for its painstaking, conspicuous effort to brief the world on the mission, knowing a lot of information would have to be held back to protect sources, operatives, methods, and sensitive data. Which makes the carelessness of the errors somewhat surprising. The costs: the media coverage sours, the President’s opponents (especially on talk radio) go crazy, other details of the mission unfairly get called into question, and the wild theories of global enemies and conspiracy seekers get a foothold.

Comments also on the death of Osama bin Laden according to one reader  is a momentous episode in American history that will undoubtedly re-shape the political dialogue for weeks and months to come. Impacts of the operation were analyzed, the death of Osama bin Laden is a momentous episode in American history that will undoubtedly re-shape the political dialogue for weeks and months to come. Some say, President Obama will likely experience a significant popularity boost in the aftermath of the news. And  is a significant moment in the Obama presidency — perhaps the biggest moment and it is assumed that bin Laden’s death will be a significant issue in 2012

President Obama and his advisors and secretaries in the White House, were equally partners in managing the operation, which ended the legacy of bin Laden, the imaginary head of 9/11 conspiracy attacks. The decision was taken, and the operation was completed.

In the well equipped operation room with high-tech audio-visual technology room in the Pentagon, President Obama and his advisors as shown in the picture on the top, were watching and guiding the operation from far.

The news carry headlines about bin Laden termination, the recent description denies that bin Laden was armed. It means that he was killed in cold blood , assassinated by intention. If this is true, then it is safe to conclude that the news show how much civilization phenomena are becoming honored with savage political behavior committed by the United States forces in the act of assassinating an unarmed person.

Last year (May 9, 2011) one week after the assassination, a book was published under the title: No Easy Day: A Factual Account of The Mission that “Killed Osama Bin Laden by Conrad Powel. It was 97 pages

The short Kindle summary of the book,  it  begins  with a statement reads:

“Mr. President. We are approaching the Haveli compound. ETA 10 minutes. It is 19:50 hundred hours Zulu Time. Black Hawk 2 is ahead of us. They should be on location as we speak.” Said spinner, the pilot of the modified helicopter Black Hawk 1.”

Two weeks ago, the Fiction account is becoming real not imaginary. The book is published by another person under the same title with little change of Capital letters. “No easy Day.”  By Mark Owen, a neck name for the author. The eyewitness, book writer says: “[bin Laden] hadn’t even prepared a defense. He had no intention of fighting.” Which means he was killed in cold blood, with no mercy. “No Easy Day” gets its title from the SEAL motto about the grueling training for SEAL candidates at the base in Coronado: The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday. Bissonnette explains that he got hooked in junior high school on being a SEAL after reading the novel “Men in Green Faces” about SEALs in Vietnam, by former SEAL Gene Wentz and co-author B. Abell Jurus.

Under the title of the book on Kindle edition, this statement was written: “This brisk first-person account by a Navy SEAL is an important historical work, though it, like the mission itself, is not flawless.” Followed by the author’s note reads: “Thank you for your . My readers mean the world to me and I trust that the ideas will keep flowing to provide maximum entertainment. Enjoy.” I wonder what enjoyment in killing stories, considered as a patriotic act? While they are assassination of human rights and justice .

Titles of articles like “How the Navy SEAL Matt Bissonnette describes the Bin Laden Raid”; “Overexposed SEAL Team 6 Has Been ‘Likely Benched,’ Says An Insider” and tens of other titles review the book or comment on it. Here are some.

The Christian Monitor under the title: ‘No Easy Day’: Pentagon has ‘very serious concerns’ about secrets in book, by Anna Mulrine, staff writer, she wrote:

“Pentagon officials say they are considering legal action against the former Navy SEAL who wrote an insider account of the Osama bin Laden raid, warning that the book reveals “sensitive and classified” information that has never before been in the public realm.”

Other titles: Pentagon: SEAL’s book has classified info, don’t follow protocol, an article by Barbara Starr, CNN Pentagon Correspondent. In the article the writers says: “Pentagon press secretary George Little told reporters that officials believe the book contains sensitive and classified material.” The book according to Amazon released news, the pre-orders put “No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden” at No. 1 on Amazon’s bestseller list for two weeks.”

In the White house press room, an inconvenient questions may be asked like : what about pumping bullets into Bin Laden (after death) as he lay defenseless on the floor? Doesn’t the Geneva Convention require the rendering of aid to even the most despicable of wounded combatants? Or do such rules not apply to U.S. special forces? The answers Possibly will be avoidance of such questions by the White House, which insisted bin Laden was killed in a firefight.

LATimes book review: ‘No Easy Day’ is a compelling account of Bin Laden’s killing”. The review starts with this scene from the book: “But he fired follow-up shots quickly and without remorse, as he describes in vivid, gruesome detail in “No Easy Day,” written under the pseudonym Mark Owen with co-author Kevin Maurer:

“The point man’s shots had entered the right side of his head. Blood and brains spilled out of the side of his skull. In his death throes, he was still twitching and convulsing,” he writes. “Another assaulter and I 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.”

After the SEALs had identified the dead man as Bin Laden. “the operation completed President Obama was informed,  and a coded phrase was relayed to an admiral in Afghanistan, who flashed the news to a waiting President Obama: The mission to get Bin Laden.”

I think the writer politely gives the impression that  President Obama was not aware of the mission, or doesn’t know about it, even though the scenes were audio-visually broadcasted in his high-tech room in the Pentagon, the pictures show the moments second by second.

Brandon Webb, a former top level operator with the SEALs, published an ebook titled, “No Easy Op”, offering an analysis of Matt Bissonnette’s controversial book.  Webb in his book says:

“We are already aware of several operators at SEAL Team Six who have been pulled from regular deployment cycles in order to deal with the aftermath of No Easy Day. They are just sitting there on the bench. This will affect the way that the SEALs plan operations. In our opinion the whole command will be on the bench as well because the consequences of this are so serious.”(Business insider)

The book summary reads on Amazon:

For the first time anywhere, the first-person account of the planning and execution of the Bin Laden raid from a Navy Seal who confronted the terrorist mastermind and witnessed his final moments. From the streets of Iraq to the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean, and from the mountaintops of Afghanistan to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden’s compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group–commonly known as SEAL Team Six– has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts readers alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the twenty-four-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives. The blow-by-blow narrative of the assault, beginning with the helicopter crash that could have ended Owen’s life straight through to the radio call confirming Bin Laden’s death, is an essential piece of modern history. In No Easy Day, Owen also takes readers onto the field of battle in America’s ongoing War on Terror and details the selection and training process for one of the most elite units in the military. Owen’s story draws on his youth in Alaska and describes the SEALs’ quest to challenge themselves at the highest levels of physical and mental endurance. With boots-on-the-ground detail, Owen describes numerous previously unreported missions that illustrate the life and work of a SEAL and the evolution of the team after the events of September 11. In telling the true story of the SEALs whose talents, skills, experiences, and exceptional sacrifices led to one of the greatest victories in the War on Terror, Mark Owen honors the men who risk everything for our country, and he leaves readers with a deep understanding of the warriors who keep America safe.”

Excerpts from the new book “No easy Day” says:

Bin Laden knew we were coming when he heard the helicopter. I had more respect for Ahmed al-Kuwaiti in the guesthouse because he at least tried to defend himself and his family. Bin Laden had more time to prepare than the others, and yet he still didn’t do anything. Did he believe his own message? Was he willing to fight the war he asked for? I don’t think so. Otherwise, he would at least have gotten his gun and stood up for what he believed. There is no honor in sending people to die for something you won’t even fight for yourself.

In other paragraph the book reads:

Bin Laden,  “hadn’t even prepared a defense. He had no intention of fighting. He asked his followers for decades to wear suicide vests or fly planes into buildings, but didn’t even pick up his weapon. In all of my deployments, we routinely saw this phenomenon. The higher up the food chain the targeted individual was, the bigger a pussy he was. The leaders were less willing to fight. It is always the young and impressionable who strap on explosives and blow themselves up.”

According to Matt Bissonnette . , a Team 6 member who was in the room and published the book No Easy Day — bin Laden actually had two weapons — and neither of them was within reach, or loaded.

Let’s go back to history, first Osama bin Laden was perceived as the financier of the 9/11 operation in some quarters, in other, he was used as a fish for a larger hidden monsters, wicked agencies or magic powerful persons, which have something dead smelling parts of conspiracy theory.

Doubts about the motives and goals of 9/11 operation are ambiguous and shaky, research on the topic, shows many fingers were pointing out of suspicion toward several secret agencies, nations, and organizations. In the final analysis, human rights were violated, innocent people died, world politics became in chaos, and accusations and lies became wide field for politicians. Afghanistan was invaded, Iraq was demolished, looking for the supposed operator of 9/11, who lives in caves in the mountains of Pakistan or Afghanistan, or elsewhere, away from the land under invasion. Ten years passed, and the imaginary Osama bin Laden is sought to be killed and pay the price for a crime, he was not alone responsible for. The man was found after a trick used by the civilized American agencies with high-Tech audio-visual technology. In a voyage of hunt, the man was assassinated, and assassination was justified. The official report from the Pentagon and CIA personnel says: the man was armed and was danger to kill American soldiers. So he was killed in self defense. But secrets or lies and lies have short period to stay un-naked. A member of the SEAL team began to reveal the secrets of bin Laden assassination, in cold blood as he observed, Bin Laden was unarmed when he was killed, that what the revealing eye-witness person is saying, in his newly published book: “Not Easy Day”.

The big secret makes political scandal: “Navy SEAL Book reveals: ‘Bin Laden Had No Intention Of Fighting’. A statement opens hundreds of questions in terms of human rights, ethical standards, and justice.  Comments noted immediately after the assassination of bin Laden last years: I leave as it is without correction, it reads:

“WHAT the hell is wrong with people? The thought of us murdering anyone is hateful and turns my stomach. But do people just not remember or understand? The Cole? Lockerbie? 9/11? HUNDREDS of INNOCENT people from countries all over the world, of all nationalities and religions were slaughtered. ON OUR OWN soil! The Pentagon was attacked. They were heading for the White House!”

May be the reader was right, but, Hay…Hiroshima… Nagasaki ….etc. are just a reminder. But his attitude may change if he find out: who benefits from the 9/11 after Huntington conflict theory, the Oil producers? I don’t think so, plus, killing the man is alright as a punishment under the law, (even though I am against it, because no person is perfect) when Osama bin Laden was killed, the White House made very clear it wasn’t an assassination. But he was unarmed. The truth was never revealed, until ‘No easy Day” book publication show up.

Some people uploaded the SEAL team, and did not believe court due process practiced by democratic U.S.A, “Imagine keeping the murderer as a prisoner; looking after him nicely on the taxpayer’s hard earned money; and to add injury to insult he gets the best lawyers (even American) to defend him for the next 3,4,5 years with all that judiciary crappings (remember the law is an ars); who knows he could even be found innocent. So justice was done; the courts are a worst of time and they add salt to the wounds of the relatives of the 9/11 victims. Bravo SEALS, well done.” (left without editing)

Other sent bin Laden to hell. “He derserves to die a thousand times. His soul is already burning in hell before his death. (left without correction).

But questions remain about the book author rights. Has the Writer the legal rights to publish secrets may show indecency of political decision making? Lawyer For Ex-SEAL Who Wrote Bin Laden Book Said: “The Pentagon Has No Room To Sue,” The lawyer who made headlines for his controversial book about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden has said his client had every right to publish his work, while the Pentagon has threatened legal action against Mark Owen for publishing his book, claiming it violates a non-disclosure agreement he signed while serving on active duty.

Well, all possibilities are possible, but who’s right and who’s wrong? I I I don’t know. All what I know is that in politics I used to ignore statements. Even the book published was monitored, and pages were removed for national security, as a close friend told me. It is not a matter of authenticity of what told, but  it is a matter of politician safety net, which permit parts of the truth.

In conclusion, the book as I see is a new kind of wikileaks news. And nothing remain secret, where the truth will show itself and clearly observed, no matter how much we try to conceal  it .
