From The Files Of Absurdity, Volume CXLI: US General Petraeus Says Bin Laden Is Probably Hiding In Pakistan Mountains! (The Man Is Clueless!)

For my next File Of Absurdity, I turn again to the US Government and media insistence that Osama Bin Laden is still alive and directing his "Al Qaeda" forces from a cave somewhere in either Afghanistan, or Pakistan. It is absolutely ludicrous that they continue with this lie, because most people are no longer that clueless and realize that Osama Bin Laden has been DEAD since December, 2001.

However, the US Government is still going forward with phony claims that their lost war in Afghanistan is for capturing Osama Bin Laden. Here is the latest totally laughable Bin Laden report that comes courtesy of the website: www.hindustantimes.com. In this article, General Petraeus himself is still trying to parrot the US Government stance that Bin Laden is alive and somewhere in the mountains of northern Pakistan. Here is that article:

'Osama probably buried in Pak mountains'

Press Trust Of India
Washington, August 16, 2010

A top US General has said Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, is probably hiding in the remote mountainous regions of Pakistan, even though no one known where he actually is. "I think he remains an iconic figure, and I think capturing or killing Osama bin Laden is still a very, very important task for all of those who are engaged in counter terrorism around the world," General David Petraeus Commander of US-led NATO forces in Afghanistan told NBC television's "Meet the Press" when asked about the Al Qaeda leader's whereabouts.

The top American General said, "I don't think anyone knows where Osama bin Laden is. The fact that it took him four weeks to get a congratulatory message out, or a message of condolence in, say, in the course of the last year or so when we've seen these, indicates, literally, how far buried he is probably in the very, very most remote and mountainous regions".

In the interview, that was recorded in Kabul on Friday and aired in the US on Sunday, Petraeus said that there is unlikely to be any possibility of peace talks with Mullah Omar – the Taliban leader.

"But (there is) every possibility, that there can be low and mid-level reintegration and, indeed, some fracturing of the senior leadership that could be really defined as reconciliation," he said in response to a question.

Petraeus said US is not facing some kind of a monolithic Taliban enemy in the region, but it is a syndicate of terrorist outfits.

"What we face is not some kind of monolithic Taliban enemy. In fact, it's more like a syndicate, is the term that we often use for the enemy that faces our troopers and our Afghan counterparts; and the Afghan civilians," he said.

"But what we face generally, of course, is, again, in the southern part of the country, this is the Taliban, the Afghan Taliban. Then, as you work your way up into the eastern part, you start to get the Haqqani network linked to the Taliban.

Again, it has a symbiotic relationship with them.

But it is not subservient, one to the other," he said.

NTS Notes: I hope that everyone has caught the Hindustan article's caption about Bin Laden "BURIED" in Pak mountains. It is obvious that there is something that the publishers of this article are well aware of, that even this clueless US General doesn't want to admit? The word "buried" is definitely the truth in this entire laughable article!

I cannot believe that this completely clueless moron is actually in charge of US and NATO forces in Afghanistan! The man is either a dimwitted clown, or he actually believes the BS that Bin Laden is still alive. The only other alternative is that he has been commanded from Washington to continue to preach to the more cynical masses that the war in Afghanistan is not about drugs, but about fighting against phony terrorism!

General Petraeus says in his comments that "I don't think anyone knows where Osama Bin Laden is". Well, I have news for this shill and fool. Osama Bin Laden is long dead and buried, and if anyone still wants to search for him, then they had better bring a shovel!

Another file for my Files Of Absurdity, definitely. But as usual there will be plenty more coming...

More to come
