Rubbing the Osama Lamp

Whenever President Bush has faced oblivion — at the polls or in his approval rating — he’s had one ally more reliable than Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Fox News, Rugh Limbaugh and the American press corps put together: Osama bin Laden.

All Bush needs to do is rub the Osama lamp, and out comes the genie to restore some luster to The Decider’s Global War on Everybody.

Remember those timely video appearances by Osama before the 2002 and 2004 elections? Remember John Ashcroft’s recurrent Big Scares about impending attacks? The yo-yo use of the Department of Homeland Security’s color codes?

    It’s all a massive lie. “Al Qaeda” doesn’t exist except as a well funded CIA front with some clueless patsies thinking they’re doing great works tossed in. Looking at it that way solves the riddle of why AQ always pops up so suspiciously propitiously for Bushco.In Iraq the occupation is fighting the patriots who want them out, but it can <>never ever<> be framed in such a simple manner, hence we get the “fighting the AQ” propaganda.The overlords never go wrong thinking they can put one over on us dead-from-the-neck-up americans.

    Apparently < HREF="http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/index.html" REL="nofollow">I’m not the only one who’s caught on<> to their crap.AQ is the new communism. Anything and everything that is opposed to the fascist takeover in america, or presents a problem to the thugs automatically gets the terror appelation at home and the AQ brand abroad. The dead Osama is useful as a face of the enemy.

    I posted today, Terrorism: Made in USA with Foreign and Domestic PartsIt’s a long post, and many bloggers enjoy shorter posts. I felt it needed to written.

  4. haha true… just like when clinton was in office, he rubbed the osama lamp and boom…there goes USS Cole.although my personal opinion is that Osama is already dead from kidney problems. You cant live without getting dialysis
