The article below entitled Who is Osama bin Laden? was drafted on September 11, 2001. (scroll down) It was first published on the Global Research website on the evening of September 12, 2001.
Since 2001, it has appeared on numerous websites. The original September 12, 2001 posting became one of the most widely read articles on the internet, pertaining to Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Since then it has been carefully “recategorized” by the Search engines. It no longer appears in the top pages of google.
The Global Research website was launched 19 years ago on the 9th of September 2001.
The original post of this article was among the first articles published by Global Research.
The original url was:
From the outset, the objective was to use 9/11 as a pretext for launching the first phase of the Middle East War, which consisted in the bombing and occupation of Afghanistan.
Within hours of the attacks, Osama bin Laden was identified as the architect of 9/11. On the following day, the “war on terrorism” had been launched. The media disinformation campaign went into full gear.
Also on September 12, less than 24 hours after the attacks, NATO invoked for the first time in its history “Article 5 of the Washington Treaty – its collective defence clause” declaring the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC) and the Pentagon “to be an attack against all NATO members.”
What happened subsequently, with the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq is already part of history. Syria, Libya and Yemen were already on the Pentagon’s drawing board, the next phase of the US adminstration’s military roadmap.
9/11 remains the pretext and justification for waging a war without borders.
