Former CIA Officials Admit To Faking Bin Laden Video

250510LadenBy Steve Watson at We Are Change LA/PrisonPlanet:

Two former CIA officials have admitted to creating a fake video in which intelligence officers dressed up as Osama Bin Laden and his cronies in an effort to defame the terrorist leader throughout the middle east.

The details are outlined in a Washington Post article by investigative reporter and former Army Intelligence case officer Jeff Stein.

Stein’s sources told him that during planning for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the CIA’s Iraq Operations Group considered creating a fake video of Saddam Hussein engaged in sexual acts with a teenage boy, then flooding Iraq with copies of the tape.

That idea, along with faking Iraqi news bulletins, never came to fruition according to the former CIA officials, because agreement on the projects could not be reached between the Iraq Group and CIA’s Office of Technical Services.

However, the two sources reveal that the agency did previously concoct at least one fake Bin Laden video:

The agency actually did make a video purporting to show Osama bin Laden and his cronies sitting around a campfire swigging bottles of liquor and savoring their conquests with boys, one of the former CIA officers recalled, chuckling at the memory. The actors were drawn from “some of us darker-skinned employees,” he said.

The former officials told Stein that the project was taken over by the military after it ground to a halt:

The reality, the former officials said, was that the agency really didn’t have enough money and expertise to carry out the projects.

“The military took them over,” said one. “They had assets in psy-war down at Ft. Bragg,” at the army’s special warfare center.

This latest revelation bolsters evidence that the intelligence agencies, and perhaps more significantly, the military have been engaged in creating fake Bin Laden videos in the past.

As we have exhaustively documented, Intelcenter, the U.S. monitoring group that routinely releases Bin Laden video and audio, much of which have been proven to be either rehashed old footage or outright fakes, is an offshoot of IDEFENSE, a web security company that monitors intelligence from the middle east.

IDEFENSE is heavily populated by long serving ex military intelligence officials, such as senior military psy-op intelligence officer Jim Melnick, who served 16 years in the US army and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in psychological operations. Melnick has also worked directly for former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Intelcenter notoriously released the “laughing hijackers” tape and claimed it was an Al-Qaeda video, despite the fact that the footage was obtained by a “security agency” at a 2000 Bin Laden speech.

IntelCenter was also caught adding its logo to a tape at the same time as Al-Qaeda’s so-called media arm As-Sahab added its logo, proving the two organizations were one and the same.

Could the CIA group of “dark skinned actors” have been behind the infamous December 2001 “Fat nosed” Bin Laden video, that was magically found in a house in Jalalabad after anti-Taliban forces moved in?…

    What is with the CIA's infatuation with little boys? The CIA has a cache' of kiddy porn they resort to when they need to CG someones face on?

    • Neo2012

      Because they are more sick than serial killers.

  • Cerebralcaustic

    Let me see if I understand: The US Central Intelligence Agency was engaged in counter-intelligence and psychological warfare?

    Shocking!!1!

      Creating false intelligence to be used to tell lies to the American public
      Which one is that – counter intelligence or psychological warfare ?

      • Laws456

        Their psychological intelligence is confusing me also. lol.

    Crafty folk, them spooks.

    This would be an OUTRAGE…if only Osama Bin Laden weren't a dangerous fellow who had it coming. Furthermore, anyone honestly worried about the defamation of Osama's character is a wildly misguided individual.

  • Hadrian999

    the real problem seems to be the CIA's total inability to keep anything a secret these days

  • hunter349

    Funny how the CIA came up with the notion of needing gays to perform on camera for them when our government seems so scared of the prospect of having them work along side them in service.

  • tonyviner

    Can you imagine, national security advisors, CIA operatives and jarheads, all beating each other off to a video of Saddam Hussein nailing a little kids bunghole?

    • RONIN

      I don't think I wanna imagine that. It's far too sexy.

  • Neo2012

    Doesn't it seem a little ironic that JFK was destroying the CIA, yet they still exist and LBJ appoints the CIA director that JFK fired to the Warren Commission. George H.W. Bush, who's father was Adolph Hitlers largest financial supporter was CIA director….Watergate. Concerning Watergate…nobody ever ssaid what was to be stolen….Nixon on recorded tapes mentioned the Bay of Pigs…Bay of Pigs = JFK murder! The same government that killed JFK are running things today…just with much more ignorant people!

      And a dumber society

      I agree with that statement, but it is important that we don't put JFK on a pedestal. He was a politician just like the rest and deserves to be treated as such.

      People should looking LBJ’s mistress’s death bed confessions. In that She claims LBJ. and His thugs had JKF killed. JKF was just about to release a tape exposing the gov’s secret agenda, and LBJ’s Illegal affiliations. LBJ was pared with JFK not by chose, but by the ruling class direction. JFK. Was about to kick many of them out of office.

      Just a Note… “ The Lamb now speaks a dragon”.. Our nation is Doomed, Soon her sins will be visited upon, and God allow our enemies to over come us for our Lavish, lives of sin. Repent America, and pray that you will be spared the brunt of the wrath to come. Islam is a punishing tool of God to bring destruction upon the apostate nation we’ve become. Islam is not gods way but he sill use it to serve his purpose.

    They’re not fooling me. Bin Laden was killed in the initial invasion of Afganistan.
