When do you start giving people credit for thinking even though they don't come to the same conclusion that you do?






I do. You get my credit for putting forward intelligent posts for the most part, regardless of whether I agree with them or not. I was unaware I needed to inform you of this. However, I made a statement regarding people relying on the Media to tell them what happened and that is when they are not thinking.... So they do not get the credit.  I don't think that's an unreasonable position to take.

Hmm...you make a habit of accusing people of relying on others to do their thinking for them. Let me ask you, then, about some of the assumptions you make: For instance, what would you consider to be a vehement argument that he was alive. Please, post an example of it. Also, you claim that I deride people who claimed he wasn't. Please show me an example of that as well.

After all, if you are not a person who simply makes assumptions and goes with them, then you must be a person who has a logical reason to believe what he believes, correct? Show us that reasoning.


I don't consider him to be alive, where do I make that assumption? o.O


I'll have to reply to the rest of your post when I get back.

Since cremation was brought up I am pondering something. Maybe its below the belt humor but what is the difference between cremation and igniting ones self amidst an explosive device. Hrmmm... no replies necessary ... LOL

Wandering, you do recall that the entire conversation that quote is from was about his burial at sea, not about cremation, correct?





Yes, I thought it was relevant since they are both on the subject of his death. I was wrong to say  "I know that you personally believed that he was buried at sea" as after finding that topic I realised you didn't specifically say that. I didn't delete it before I posted, my bad. If you want to edit it I don't mind. The part I was more concerned about was that you seemed to be considering the media reports as a likely occurence. This is the holding of your Government to high standards that I mentioned before. It's what they should have done, but people are not known for doing the right thing much less what they should have done.

I didn't accuse you of arguing, only treating people with what I percieved as derision. To be honest after I posted that I regretted it, It will only detract from the discussion.

I would recommend you begin practicing withholding judgements for a while.  You have a bad habit of always wanting to come up with a conclusion.

Your behaviour says otherwise.

The above is one of the reasons I do not regard you as a thinker and consequently do not believe you are ready to understand the process of skepticism.

That is true. We could take the high road and be Strong and Aggressive, but not disrespectful. But in my mind, I only think we should be respectful to those that deserve respect. OBL did not deserve respect.

I think that those that would be likely to turn to terrorism due to the abuse of OBL body would jump at any reason to be fanatical anyway. I believe that the vast majority of Muslims would agree he was a crimnal. I do also believe that purposefully desecrating his body would provide a net reduction in terrorist activity, as only the Martyrs would then think to attack the US and think to escape punishment. That was the whole point of hunting him down.

  Maybe not, but he certainly knew it was gonna happen, and who was responsible for it, and for the years of lies thereafter!!

There would be a lot of hangings if every provocateur of resistance against U.S. military intervention is addressed.  For that is what bin Laden was.  It has never been shown that bin Laden played a direct role in the operational planning of 9/11.

Bin Laden himself credited Atta as general of the operation on more than one occasion, himself denying responsibility and made a prediction as far back as 1998 that the U.S. would use him as the bogeyman with which to invade Afghanistan - he was right.

The evidence available suggests bin Laden did not know every specific of the attack.  Heck, he tuned into his radio at around 9 a.m. New York time, missing the first WTC plane impact.  Hardly the action of someone eagerly awaiting news on success of the attack he had allegedly masterminded for years.  No, the evidence is that bin Laden did not know what time it was scheduled.

A legal case never was presented as to bin Laden’s involvement you know.  What we have is a propaganda campaign; a politically driven witch hunt, the likes of which should not exist in a civilised world where the rule is “innocent until proven guilty”.

There are too many other points to mention in one post.

Operation Northwoods was a 1962 plan by the US Department of Defense to cause acts of violence, blamed on Cuba, in order to generate U.S. public support for military action against the Cuban government. The plan called for various false flag actions, such as staged terrorist attacks and plane hijackings, on U.S. and Cuban soil.

OBL was never indicted by the federal government for any role in 911.

I think the only indictment was out of Texas somewhere, for nonrelated charges.

Yes, the U.S. government promised a paper demonstrating bin Laden’s responsibility though it never materialized.  The U.K. government released a brief but admitted that it was never intended to form a legal case that would stand up in court.

When the Taliban offered to hand over bin Laden for trial in a neutral country the U.S. refused.  That says everything about their priority to bring the 9/11 perpetrators to justice, next to the longstanding agenda of regime change in Afghanistan.

Well, we do appear to have a pretty blatant confession from Usama bin Laden...

Bin Laden's alleged voice claims responsibilities to carry out the attacks were given to 19 men and Moussaoui was not one of them.

"He had no connection at all with Sept. 11," the voice said. "I am the one in charge of the 19 brothers and I never assigned brother Zacarias to be with them in that mission."

"Since Zacarias Moussaoui was still learning how to fly, he wasn't No. 20 in the group, as your government has claimed," bin Laden continued.
