Bin Laden was a 911 truther

The American Office of the Director of National Intelligence has now released a list of some of the books that apparently graced Osama bin Laden’s shelves in his Pakistan hideout. The translated declassified documents, mostly letters to and from bin Laden and his associates, reveal an unsurprisingly deep fear of surveillance, as well as things like applications for prospective al-Qaeda members and a letter “to the American people.” [5] The release of the documents comes less than two weeks after journalist Seymour Hersh published an article casting doubt on the official story of bin Laden’s killing. Among Hersh’s claims — which the White House has sought to discredit — was that the “treasure trove” of documents obtained from bin Laden’s compound was either worthless or fabricated. [6] The books taken from Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad, Pakistan compound  reveal him to be a 911 truther and a conspiracy nut.  The full list includes what ABC News describes as “conspiracy theory-themed works.” The library of the most wanted man in the world include titles by authors who have appeared on the Alex Jones Show.  [1] Those authors include Greg Palast, Fritz Springmeier, John Perkins, David Ray Griffin and John Coleman.  [1]  Bin Laden also owned books by famed Watergate scandal reporter Bob Woodward and US academic Noam Chomsky. And his interest in conspiracy theories was not confined to 9/11 – there were also books on the kinds of powerful shadowy elites obsessed over by conspiracy theorists, including the “Illuminati” and “Committee of 300”. More mainstream titles on international terrorism also featured heavily in his reading material, as did US foreign policy reports. [3] The insinuation is clear: the number one terrorist enemy of the United States read literature by English language authors deemed subversive by the government and based, in part, his philosophy on material produced by them.  [1] How better to discredit the arguments of critics of US foreign policy and the agenda of the corporatist elite?  Here is the full list posted on the Office of the Director of National Intelligence website:

Among the more surprising texts that were found at the compound is A Brief Guide to Understanding Islam by IA Ibrahim.  Another title that stands out is Grappler’s Guide to Sports Nutrition by John Berardi and Michael Fry – although it is listed by the US government as “probably used by other compound residents”.  The texts suspected of belonging to other residents also include the 2008 Guinness Book of World Records, Children’s Edition and Is It the Heart You Are Asking? – a suicide prevention guide. [3] A sizable collection of manuals for computer programs, printers and virus protection software paint a picture of the more banal side of life as the world’s most wanted man. [3]  Think “McAfee Virus Scan 6.0 Manual,” “HP Printer Owner’s Manual,” and “Adobe Acrobat Manual.” If a theme stands out, it’s the importance of web and video production, with references to Adobe’s tools, the now Google-owned On2 Technologies, and a professional lighting effects suite. This revelation, granted, is not nearly as useful as more reports on the US intelligence community’s surveillance program — parts of which are up for renewal this month — would be. [5] The Office of the Director of National Intelligence notes that the “Game Spot Videogame Guide” and “Delta Force Extreme 2 Videogame Guide” were “probably used by other compound residents.” [5]
