Default Confused ...Video Footage of Bin Laden....living in "Luxury"??? - 05-07-2011, 07:47 PM

Pentagon releases 'bin Laden tapes' - Americas - Al Jazeera English

Most media reports following Bin Laden's death emphasized the notion that Bin laden lived in a mansion, and existed in a luxurious lifestyle in which dined on goat meat (since when is goat meat gourmet?), drank American Soda( if that's luxury, convenient stores are the seat of the wealthy) and lived in a mansion

but this place depicted here looks like a slum, even in Third World standards

where's the luxury? I'm not a Bin Laden supporter; but is it more important to lie to serve our agenda than to show the truth?

well it's not the cave that they were searching for so they are still pretty much in shock.

He was living in a less than average house with not much furniture at all. there is nothing shocking except people making up things to suit a story LOL.

Look at the facts presented.

The majority of Americans believe what is dictated to them by the media because many only have a single source on information (such as Fox News) and cannot be bothered to search up news topics via independent and reliable sources.

If they have more than one source it is still likely to be American and hence promote an American government agenda.


Anyone with half a brain can see through this agenda if they go online and look for news through a variety of sources.


The notion of a free and independent media goes out the window when the American government asks congress for more money to spend on promoting pro-government propaganda news channels creating a monopoly as a result of rising competition from foreign news sources such as RussiaToday. Their American branch RTAmerica is growing in popularity because it gives a different point of view from the mainstream channels and the government sees this as a threat to its agenda.

The facts were presented from the Pakis and guards questioned. They referenced him living in luxury while they had to pull security.

You can use things like Zeenews and that other TV News (the one ghundal favors...that mule.) They present so much un-related topics from their news that they tend to be considered anti-american.
