Former German Intelligence chief on OBL, December 2010

Here's a retrospectively very accurate report based on an interview with the former German Intelligence Officer tasked with hunting Bin Laden, Dr. August Hanning. It's from December 2010 ie before OBL's assassination in May 2011.
We have got information always on where he was. And that’s the problem — days, week later.

“I knew there was a chance in Afghanistan I think immediately before Tora Bora and in Tora Bora … I think there was a real opportunity to catch him and afterwards in Pakistan it became very difficult,” Hanning told CNN.

Hanning, who was appointed State Secretary in the German Federal Interior Ministry at the end of 2005 — one of the country’s most senior counter-terrorism positions — retired late last year.

He says he agrees with recent comments by an unnamed senior NATO official to CNN last month that bin Laden is alive and well in Pakistan.

“I think there are still a lot of hints that he is in Pakistan, and according to my estimates he is in the tribal areas in the region near Peshawar: the border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan,” Hanning told CNN.

Pakistani officials consistently deny bin Laden’s presence on their soil. Hanning believes rogue elements in their intelligence service, the ISI, are hiding him.

“It’s hard for me to believe that they know nothing,” he said, and in some ways the al Qaeda leader is useful to Pakistan. “So long [as] bin Laden is in Pakistan so Pakistan will get support from the Americans’ fight against terrorism.”

And Pakistan would be in a bind if bin Laden were caught, because to some Pakistanis he is a hero. “If he were caught the Pakistani government would be in a very difficult situation, because the Americans would ask the Pakistanis to extradite him.”

Hanning believes bin Laden’s presence in Pakistan is one of the United States’ most delicate diplomatic problems and one that needs to be solved before U.S. troops can safely withdraw from Afghanistan — because given the chance al Qaeda would return to Afghanistan.

Rivero quotes his own rubbish

Rivero's back to quoting himself for his 'quote of the day' spot. Narcissist?

It's complete rubbish too - look at his first claim:
"Scientists talk about how "lucky" we are that Earth is in the "right" place for life to develop, but they have it backwards. We are the life that evolves on a planet in these conditions. We find Earth comfortable because we evolved here. We see the so-called visible spectrum because that is the light that gets through the atmosphere to illuminate the world. Beings from another world may well see Earth as hostile in the extreme and marvel that we are able to survive and thrive under such unpleasant conditions." -- Michael Rivero
Scientists do not say 'how lucky we are that earth is in the right place'.

Typical Rivero, completely misrepresenting what someone says.

Super Troofers - Part One. Karl B Schwarz, presidential candidate and nanotechnology expert.

Karl B Schwarz


One of the greatest Troofers of all time.

A giant of a ......Troofer.
Schwarz, 54, officially announced his candidacy for President on a public telephone-seminar Thursday night, where hundreds joined him in a question and answer period to map out a strategy to “rid America of the neo-con stranglehold on Washington.”

Schwarz, best known for his 800 age book bashing Bush and the neo-cons, titled “One Way Ticket to Crawford Texas,” has been rallying support and organizing his third party for more than two years, ever since coming on the national scene with his detailed analysis of how the bush administration is actually a “front government” for the New World Order, bent on destroying American democracy under a one world oppressive government.

Concerning terrorism, Schwarz has openly accused the Bush administration of being part and parcel of 9/11, saying it definitely was an inside government job. Since coming forward as a strong Bush critic, Schwarz has been in the forefront of the 9/11 truth movement, pointing out numerous inconsistencies and overt cover-up by the administration to keep the truth from the American people."

Not content with running the country, he also runs nanotechnology. So he said.

Patmos NanoTechnology. Remember them? LOL.

Rivero on the scav again

Why ask for 'just a little bit'? If it's so little, why ask?

And because they had to pay to survive a DDOS attack? Oh, what rot.

He's dead

Good and gone.

ETA - Rivero says:
"Yes, we were hacked. Starting just moments before President Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden, our website was hit with what the hosting company described as a massive distributed denial of service attack, no doubt to prevent the public from accessing the documentation showing Bin Laden actually died in December of 2001 of natural causes."
HAHA. Does he really believe that?

Documentation that Bin Laden died in December 2001? HAHA. Look at Rivero's definition of documentation!

Rivero cites Fox News' reference to a Pakistani Observer article.....
Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader.
Documentation! It appeared in the Pakistan Observer - good enough for Rivero. It just must be true, right?
