View Full Version : More stuff you won't find on the party spoon ...

It appears that dear leader made his "GUTSY CALL" only when his hand was forced by events beyond his control.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">WikiLeaks may have triggered the killing of Osama Bin Laden, it was suggested last night.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>For although the CIA has thought since September that he was in hiding in Abbottabad, special forces stormed his fortress only days after the website published new secret documents.</span>

These made reference to named ‘couriers’ carrying Bin Laden’s message to his followers, and also to Abbottabad as a possible Al Qaeda bolthole.

America has already revealed that it was led to Bin Laden by tracking a man identified as his key courier.

When that courier was found in Abbottabad, the CIA began surveillance that led to the raid.

As a result, last night it was suggested <span style='font-size: 11pt'>the operation had to be launched before Bin Laden knew the game was up.</span> The theory is based on a leaked U.S. Defence Department assessment of Guantanamo Bay prisoner Abu Faraj al-Libi, 40.

The assessment, currently available on the internet, was among information first released to newspapers including the Guardian and the Telegraph, and identifies al-Libi as an operational chief of Al Qaeda, and long-term close associate of Bin Laden.

After working at the centre of the terror network in Afghanistan for more than a decade, al-Libi fled to Pakistan following the Allied conquest of Kabul in November 2001.

The top secret document claims: ‘In July 2003 In July 2003, al-Libi received a letter from Osama Bin Laden’s designated courier, Maulawi Abd al-Khaliq Jan, requesting detainee take on the responsibility of collecting donations, organizing travel, and distributing funds to families in Pakistan.

‘Osama Bin Laden stated al-Libi would be the official messenger between Bin Laden and others in Pakistan.

‘In mid-2003, al-Libi moved his family to Abbottabad, and worked between Abbottabad and Peshawar.’

Al-Libi remained living in Abbottabad until 2004, the document continues, before moving within Pakistan and eventually being captured by Pakistani special forces the following year. He was then handed to the Americans, who continue to detain him to this day.

Compound: <span style='font-size: 11pt'>Reports are suggesting that the attack on Bin Laden and his lair was triggered by the latest revelations on the WikiLeaks website</span>

Although the document does not suggest Bin Laden has hidden in Abbottabad, it clearly identifies the city as known to the Americans as a possible Al Qaeda leadership bolthole, and identifies by name several couriers.

It is not yet clear whether the named couriers are those who did indeed lead the CIA to Bin Laden – but even so the document could have provided evidence for Al Qaeda that the net was closing in.

US diplomatic memos about corruption in the Middle-East, published by WikiLeaks, have been linked to the violent uprisings across the region.

The document in the current controversy also says al-Libi is a senior Al Qaida member who as well as long years fighting in Afghanistan – he went on Al Jazeera and ‘bragged he killed approximately 100 Americans in Afghanistan in 200’ - also helped control anti-American attacks in Iraq, and claimed to have 50 suicide bombers waiting for martyrdom.

As well as claims that al-Libi headed an operation to hide remote control bombs in children’s Sega computer games, the document also features the chilling suggestion that if Bin Laden was killed, Al Qaeda planned to detonate a nuclear bomb in its possession – a bomb said to be kept in Europe.

WikiLeaks, headed by Julian Assange, has faced attacks from around the world, particularly America, for its publication of leaked secret documents.

So Julian Assange is in the running for the Medal of Freedom?

If he can come up with a BC containing 50 Photoshop laters, he might replace Biden on the ticket.

April 27, 2011 2:35 P.M.
By Nathan Goulding

We have received several e-mails today calling into question the validity of the PDF that the White House released, namely that there are embedded layers in the document. There are now several other people on the case. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>We looked into it and dismissed it.</span>

The PDF is composed of multiple images. That’s correct. Using a photo editor or PDF viewer of your choice, you can extract this image data, view it, hide it, etc. But these layers, as they’re being called, aren’t layers in the traditional photo-editing sense of the word. They are, quite literally, pieces of image data that have been positioned in a PDF container. They appear as text but also contain glyphs, dots, lines, boxes, squiggles, and random garbage. They’re not combined or merged in any way. Quite simply, they look like they were created programmatically, not by a human.

What’s plausible is that somewhere along the way — from the scanning device to the PDF-creation software, both of which can perform OCR (optical character recognition) — these partial/pseudo-text images were created and saved. What’s not plausible is that the government spent all this time manufacturing Obama’s birth certificate only to commit the laughably rookie mistake of exporting the layers from Photoshop, or whatever photo editing software they are meant to have used. It’s likely that whoever scanned the birth certificate in Hawaii forgot to turn off the OCR setting on the scanner. Let’s leave it at that.

UPDATE: I’ve confirmed that scanning an image, converting it to a PDF, optimizing that PDF, and then opening it up in Illustrator, does in fact create layers similar to what is seen in the birth certificate PDF. You can try it yourself at home. </div></div>

Got it now? No more of this nonsense please.

I know you are slow on this ... but the topic is dear leader's "GUTSY CALL" being just another myth spoon fed to the O-cultists.
