NOTE: The questions got more interesting as it went along, but Manousos only got the beginning of the Q&A recorded, so watch for other videos elsewhere.

Hey kidz!!! Always remember when calculating the COST of WAR . . .

"In war, truth is the first casualty."
- Aeschylus Greek tragic dramatist (525 BC - 456 BC)

(clipped 26 December 2001 headline and article from Fox News)
"Report: Bin Laden Already Dead - 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. 'The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead,' the source said."

Notice that not a single Main Stream Media outlet is challenging this latest wagging the dead guy story in the least. . .

. .. looks like everyone is "on board" . . . just like on 9-11.

Cui bono? Who benefits?

1 - Take the Libya assassination attempts that killed Gaddafi's child and grandchildren off the front page?

2 - Allows Obama to declare "Victory" and get out of Afghanistan with "honor" before the U.S. suffers the same fate as the FORMER Soviet Union?

3 - Allows the Zionists to stage another 9-11/7-7 "False Flag" operation that can be blamed on Israel's enemies (Syria? Iran?) seeking "revenge" so we can continue Netanyhu's "Eretz Israel" agenda?

4 - To allow our "Special Friend" Benjamin Netanyahu a bed of roses to walk on when he arrives this month to address Congress . .. after all, we couldn't have 9-11 without Israel's help . . .I mean we could have never "killed Osama bin Laden" without Israel's help . . . ;-)

5 - To guarantee that Obama gets a second term over Dr. Ron Paul?

6 - To make everyone quit talking about that very suspicious Birth Certificate and get Obama's numbers back up in the "Hope And Change Range"?

All this ol' fool knows is that any time the Zionists start waving the dead guy around, bad things happen in the world. . .

So, did the top secret "tip" in August about OBL's whereabouts come from Rita Katz's "S.I.T.E" agency??? . . . ;-)

"Ding Dong! The Witch is dead.
Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
Wake up you sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead.
She's gone where the goblins go,
Below - below - below.
Yo-ho, let's open up and sing and ring the bells out.
Ding Dong' the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Witch is dead!"
- "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead" from The Wizard of Oz
