Fidel Castro: Osama bin Laden is a CIA Agent

Saturday, August 28, 2010

Fidel Castro says al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is a CIA agent who always popped up when former President George W. Bush needed to scare the world, arguing the recently released documents prove it.

Castro told state media:

“Any time Bush would stir up fear and make a big speech, bin Laden would appear threatening people with a story about what he was going to do. Bush never lacked for bin Laden’s support. He was a subordinate.”

The provocative statements by the 84-year-old Cuban revolutionary are not the first to suggest that both Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein are modern-day versions of George Orwell’s 1984’s Emmanuel Goldstein. Goldstein is the mythological leader of the opposition Brotherhood and using doublethink, Orwell creates a character that does, and does not exist. Goldstein is the number One Enemy of the People, according to the Party. He is never seen but is used by the government to strike fear in the people.

Castro, who stepped down as Cuban president in 2006 due to failing health said the actual voice of Osama bin Laden was last heard in late 2001, not long after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He said the person heard making warnings about terror attacks after was nothing more than a “bad actor.”

Whether you agree or disagree with Castro’s remarks, it’s interesting to note that the secretive group known as “The Family,” one of the most powerful, well-connected Christian fundamentalist movements in the United States and whose membership includes Democratic and Republican congressmen, corporate leaders, generals, and foreign heads of state, cited both Pol Pot and Osama bin Laden as outstanding men whose commitment to their causes is something to be emulated.

    I’ve always found is suspect that some lousy state like Mississippi can find some cat who is behind on his child support but, the whole power and force of the U.S. intelligence community and military can’t find bin Laden living in a cave in NW Pakistan. Sorry folks, but it doesn’t logically add up.

    Remember Gary Brooks Faulkner?

    American Hunting Osama Bin Laden Was Intent on Avenging 9/11

    American Gary Brooks Faulkner was arrested in Pakistan who was on a solo mission to hunt down Osama bin Laden told police he was intent on avenging the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks.

    Curious that Faulkner would be arrested? Could it be a free Osama bin Laden is far more useful to the U.S. government as the face of its “war on terrorism?”

    Osama bin Laden looks like someone hired by central casting to play a shadowy terrorist. I would hope our government wouldn’t be so shamelessly cynical in its attempt to control the population but, I’ve lived long enough to see the world for what it is and isn’t.

  4. That’s gotta be a sweet paying gig.

  5. Jolly Roger says:

    Uh, of COURSE he at least was? We flat-out created al Qaeda. Thank Saint Ronnie for that.

  6. Estacada says:

    Reagan thought highly of Osama bin Laden.

    But Reagan was absorbed into “the Family” when it was determined he would not only become governor of California but one day, president.

    You see, 1976 was an anomaly. Carter wasn’t supposed to win. This is why to this very day, Carter is still the butt of every conservative joke about what’s wrong with the Democratic party.

  7. VicoDANIEL says:

    Osama bin Laden hates Jews and gays.

    In a 2002 letter, he called on Americans to “reject the immoral acts of fornication (and) homosexuality, intoxicants, gambling, and usury.”

    He also believes in antisemitic, Jewish conspiracies, writing: “These Jews are masters of usury and leaders in treachery. They will leave you nothing, either in this world or the next.”

    There can be no reconciliation between Muslims and Jews. Muslims who try to co-exist with Jews are considered “Heretics” and represent “enemies of Islam.”

    If Osama bin Laden is on the CIA payroll then I think an argument can be made that the agency needs to be torn apart and rebuilt with careful oversight to avoid a repeat of 9/11.

  8. Walk on Socks says:

    For many years after they murdered President John F. Kennedy, they tried to blame Fidel Castro for his death.

    Of course, this was patently absurd. Castro even told an interviewer he like and admired Mr. Kennedy and Cuba lacked the resources to carry out such a hit.

    Now most Americans understand President Kennedy’s assassination was an inside job hit job planned by Pentagon Hawks and carried out by rogue spooks in the FBI.

    This is very interesting. And, Christopher, thank you for not dirtying up your blog with coverage about that fool Glenn Beck and his bitch, Sarah Palin. I refuse to even turn on the cable news today. Call it my personal boycott.

  10. Joe says:

    I, too, have wondered why Bin Laden is still at large. I, too, have long thought that the CIA has used his memory and purported recordings to drum up support for the war.

    Kennedy tried that, look what happened to him.

    Bin Laden’s been dead since at least…if memory serves me…2003 or early 2004 when Bush let loose in a press conference that “Bin Laden is no longer our prime objective.” He may have been on CIA payroll at one time – really, I don’t doubt it, but odds are good he’s very dead now.

  12. Miss Courtet says:

    If Osama bin Laden is indeed, dead, why then do we have covert plans to invade Northwest Pakistan?

    Remote aerial drones launched from bases scattered throughout the region could deal with the 50 or so al Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan. I fear a much larger military engagement on Obama’s watch.
