Did Seal Team 6 members strangle Green Beret to cover up fake “Bin Laden killing”?

Official "Bin Laden killing" story is a joke. Now two Seal Team 6 members being investigated for murdering a Green Beret who may have learned too much...

Did Staff Sgt. Logan J. Melgar learn something unusual about the alleged killing of Osama Bin Laden by Seal Team 6?

If he did, he took the secret to his grave. Sgt. Melgar turned up dead last June 4 in the housing he shared with Seal Team 6 members at the US Embassy in Bamako, Mali.

Now two Seals from Team 6 are under investigation for murder — and speculation is swirling about the possible motive, including “whether Sergeant Melgar had stumbled upon some illicit activity the SEALs were involved in, and they silenced him, according to interviews with troops and their families.” (NY Times)

One of the most egregious examples of “illegal activity” would be the supposed killing of Osama Bin Laden on May 2, 2011 in Abbottabad, Pakistan. According to Seymour Hersh’s sources, the murdered individual said to have been Bin Laden was never positively identified by anyone, including the shooter who essentially shot the head and body into bloody pulp without any other team members having caught so much as a glimpse of the individual who was shot.

According to Hersh’s sources, the mess that remained of “Bin Laden” was bagged and dumped from a helicopter over the mountains. A ludicrous cover story about a supposed “burial at sea according to Muslim custom” was invented by idiot higher-ups, who perhaps did not realize that no such Muslim custom exists: Islam insists on land burial where at all possible.

Hersh’s sources claim that Pakistan’s ISI, which holds few if any secrets from CIA/NSA who created it, held Bin Laden under house arrest at the Abbottabad compound from 2006 onward, almost certainly with the full knowledge and complicity of the US government.

This scenario completely demolishes the official story of 9/11: If Bin Laden were really involved in 9/11, the US government would have put Bin Laden on trial and convicted him in a real, civilian court of law (not the kind of kangaroo court currently being used to lynch Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and other “9/11 conspirators”).  It wouldn’t have ordered the Pakistanis hold him under house arrest for five years!

Even more obviously, if Bin Laden were really the 9/11 ringleader, he would have been captured and interrogated, not killed. After all, the information he could provide could stop attacks and save lives!  (The same is true of all the other patsies who are summarily executed as “terrorists” — if they were real terrorists, every effort would be made to take them alive.)

But is Hersh correct in assuming that Bin Laden was really killed in Abbottabad? Hersh’s account, supposedly corroborated by people who were there, suggests that not the slightest effort was made to positively identify Bin Laden either before or after the execution! Instead, a single gunman blasted “Bin Laden” to smithereens, and nobody else saw anything but the human hamburger that was left…which was quickly disposed of.

To call this account suspicious is an understatement. If true, it is proof positive that Bin Laden was NOT killed that day. Why? Because in the event of an actual Bin Laden execution, positive identification of Bin Laden would have been the highest priority. Instead, it appears (according to Hersh) that AVOIDING positive identification of “Bin Laden” was the highest priority. Ergo, there was no Bin Laden killing.

Yes, something really happened in Abbottabad that night…but what it is ain’t exactly clear. Did Sgt. Logan J. Melgar find out what really happened—perhaps in drunken conversation with Seal Team 6 members—and pay the price?

There is good reason to think Bin Laden died in December, 2001, as Pakistani and Egyptian newspapers reported. David Ray Griffin’s short book Osama Bin Laden: Dead or Alive? shows that Bin Laden was innocent of involvement in 9/11, likely died of kidney failure in late 2001 and was buried in an unmarked grave (according to actual Salafi-Islamic prescription).

But Griffin’s hypothesis is not a fully-proven slam dunk, just a best guess. The only thing we know for sure is that the official story of the “Bin Laden killing,” like the official story of 9/11, is an obvious load of horse manure, riddled with internal inconsistencies and impossibilities.

  1. Osama bin Laden definately passed away in late 2001 . he was sadid to be tall , about 6’3″ i guess.

    they guy shot in 2011 may have only been 5’6″ to 5’9″ , I have no way of confirming but I have an inkling this is so .

    About these Troops on Zionist Conquests , I mean Theyre being treated like crap , or a Condomn , They take Each Soldier to the Max and Crack them up with Chemical Pills for increased Alertness & massive Guilt which Shows up as PTSD .
    Now IF the Government lives upto its Commitment to the Professional Soldiers that would be good that would mean the Soldier being taken care of Before & After action and surely taking care of Soldiers Health & Monetary needs . But govts are not doing thar , Couple of Days Ago Government of Canada announced the ” Elite Troops ” Who are Sick for longer than 180 days , Their Benefits will be cut.
    Imagine Being an ELITE Soldier and even then being dumped by the government IF Your Recovery is Slow .

  2. Whoever did the photo that was sent around the world had an excellent photo-reworking program and remarkable expertise. The “re-touched” photo is a good example of what can be done with a photo.

    • Very basic photoshop 101. I have seen the “sections” that were pieced together to make the photo…. I think it was about four overlays.

      Still fooled a lot of people, but most people don’t know or care to know that he isn’t the cave dwelling boogie man and that he died years ago.

  3. The photo of the White House staff, displaying their acting abilities, was of course, a fraud. CIA Director Leon Panetta made the statement that no signal was being received by the White House at that time. It has surprised me that he did not have a fatal heart attack or shoot himself in the back of his head, twice, after revealing the truth.

  4. It will be a secret investigation which may result in a secret trial with a secret judgment or a public clarification thats means nothing. Thats all you need to know. Don’t worry be happy and keep the line moving because there is nothing to see here for your pay grade and Zero security level. Someone getting murdered is just the usual price of doing business and business is not only good, it’s great. Government agents at all levels, including Seals, are the most expendable people on the planet because they have volunteered to be expendable, irregardless of cost to an unlimited budget.

    • Seals should start to realize that even they can ‘get in the way’ and be a problem. There are times when just following and carrying out orders is not going to save your ass.

    • that I believe! and they don’t hide the fact…
      has Lee Harvey Oswald got his star too?
      how bout McVey?

      all CIA used and abused

  5. Excessive and reckless use of our special forces, will only ensure that the honorable will revolt and leave, while promoting the less scrupulous. The best of the best being lead by the worst of the worst, is not a scenario with a good ending. This string of events is more than a strong indication, it is a symptom of far progressed results of misuse and abuse of our special forces.
