In a State of Political Theater: The Bin Laden Raid and Government disinformation

The latest and greatest:

Al Qaeda Playbook Revealed

“U.S. intelligence is now in possession of a veritable “playbook” of al Qaeda operations — from potential terror attack targets to information on international safe houses and top commanders — thanks to the Navy SEAL raid that took down Osama bin Laden Sunday, officials told ABC News today.”

The US military/intelligence community has been on the hunt for the “Al Qaeda Playbook” for years and years, letting sources milk untold amounts of money out of the US Defense establishment in pursuit of a myth, a fabrication, something that never existed.  I’ve seen this up close and its absolutely disgusting.  Even low level intelligence analysts were telling me that the AQ playbook is total BS.

Think about it, why would a decentralized organization that consists of a loose nit group of autonomous terror cells make a playbook?  And if they did, what use could it possibly have?

Today, it was also splashed all over the headlines that Al Qaeda confirms that Bin Laden is dead and vows revenge.  This message comes to us via SITE, an organization led by Rita Katz, whose father was executed by the Saddam regime for being an alleged Israeli spy.  SITE claims to be a terrorist watchdog that monitors internet chatter.  They have also been the origin of many other dubious AQ and UBL messages.

Needless to say, I would be highly skeptical of much of the information propaganda being put out at the moment.
