This is from today’s Guardian.
A first-hand account of the US Navy Seal raid that killed contradicts previous accounts by administration officials, raising questions over whether he presented a clear threat when he was first fired upon.
Bin Laden apparently was hit in the head when he looked out of his bedroom door into the top-floor hallway of his compound as Seals rushed up a narrow stairwell in his direction, according to a former Navy Seal writing under the pseudonym Mark Owen in No Easy Day. The book is to be published next week by Penguin’s Dutton imprint.
I don’t believe OBL was ever killed in this made-up raid. Why would the US kill him if all the stories were true about OBL leading the al Qaeda network? Wouldn’t they want to torture him for all the information they could extract then kill him?
Read “Secret Affairs: Britain’s Collusion with Radical Islam” by Mark Curtis and see how both the UK and US created intelligence assets for decades to foil the legitimate aspirations of Middle Eastern folk for self-determination and tell me you believe anything about so-called terrorism…
Perfidious Albion is a pejorative phrase used within the context of international relations and diplomacy to refer to acts of duplicity, treachery and hence infidelity (with respect to promises made to or alliances formed with other nation states) by monarchs or governments of Britain (or England) in their pursuit of self-interest and the requirements of realpolitik.
For copious examples of this behaviour I recommend “Secret Affairs: Britain’s Collusion with Radical Islam” by Mark Curtis.
