Al Qaeda says Bin Laden is dead, but will Deathers believe it?

(CNN) — Al Qaeda released a statement on jihadist forums Friday confirming the death of its leader, Osama bin Laden, according to SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors Islamist websites.

The development comes days after U.S. troops killed bin Laden in a raid on a compound in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad.

The statement, translated by SITE, lauded the late militant, threatened to take action against the United States, and urged Pakistanis to “rise up and revolt.”

Will this news have any affect on the Deather claims? Or will the Deathers continue on doggedly ignoring reality? Most likely the latter.
Much like its parent Conspiracy Theory its a faith. And all faiths have their own set of rules outside of reality.

Some Deathers are just paranoid, not trusting anything that they cant control themselves. While some were trying to be logical, but lacking the reasoning to realize that the claim was being confirmed by non US sources. But then there is the other element that was using Bin Ladens death for another reason to discredit the US Government, in a bid to marginalize it out of importance.

The paranoid and the logical (or illogical) thinkers on their own are not dangerous, maybe a little annoying, but not dangerous.
The propagandists on the other hand, the ones that are using Bin Ladens death to attack the creditability of this country. Well this type of propagandist is dangerous to everyones safety.

I know they will cry and fume and say that its their right to question the Government. And of course with doubt that ir our right, our duty even. I do not discourage questioning the Government, I fully promote such questioning. And I do it myself. I question the power of Political Parties and the Rights onslaught on basic human rights.

But the constant marginalizing and accusations and attacks on the Government isnt just merely Questioning the Government.
It is propaganda to marginalize the Government in order to replace the US Government with something else.

And the Deather movement much like the Truth Movement is just that an attack on the common people on their rights and on Democracy itself. Im sure this observation will not sit well with those that have such goals. They will cry and scream and attempt to marginalize myself for even uddering such blasphemy. But it is our duty to question the Government and those that oppose our Government. That is the responsible thing to do. No one can assume that they have the peoples best interest in mind.

In WW2 the Nazi’s convinced the people that their Government was so irrelevant that Nazism was a good direction. Are we doomed to repeat history and let one of these factions take away our rights? Which should we submit too? Has the voice of the generation that fought the Nazi’s been silenced? As a nation we should always be on the look out for those that want to destroy our nation. But this can be done without the paranoia that was McCarthyism. But we need to question groups that want to transform our country into that which it isnt and wasnt designed to be. America is unique as any country is unique, not above or below any other country. We can be proud of the good we have done, yet aware of the mistakes. It is mistakes that make us a better people, for we know what is a mistake, and not repeat them again. But that takes vigilance and cooperation, it takes Democracy. We are indeed an collective of individuals with a single voice. That is if we treat each other as equals, true equals not teams. IMHO…
