The death of Osama bin Laden announced by President Barack Obama on May 1, 2011

Osama bin Laden’s death was announced by President Barack Obama on Sunday evening May 1, 2011. Obama described bin Laden as the perpetrator of 911, and public enemy number 1. Bin Laden’s death was celebrated by many mainstream U.S. media outlets, political leaders and organizations. For many Americans, it brings closure to an incident that traumatized the American psyche and sparked a relentless global War on Terror. On the other side of the political divide, are those claiming that bin Laden had been killed some time ago and that the announcement was to be trotted out at the most politically expedient time for the Obama administration. There is more than political expediency behind the announcement of bin Laden’s death. There is a powerful archetypal element behind it. Not least is the irony of President “Obama” announcing “Osama’s” death given the name similarity. In a definite sense it brings closure to an ugly chapter in American history. For Obama, it represents a way of answering his critics over the direction he is taking the country. The U.S. is now free to concentrate on new emerging challenges in the international arena. Yet it’s hard to ignore the massive evidence that much of the Global War on Terror was contrived. Does the announcement of bin Laden’s death clear the path for the USA to embark on a new contrived global threat? This time, rather than extremists hiding in remote Afghanistan caves planning terrorist attacks, it will be against a more technologically advanced enemy – extraterrestrials?

First, this is what President Barack Obama had to say about Osama Bin Laden:

Good evening. Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children. It was nearly 10 years ago that a bright September day was darkened by the worst attack on the American people in our history. The images of 9/11 are seared into our national memory — hijacked planes cutting through a cloudless September sky; the Twin Towers collapsing to the ground; black smoke billowing up from the Pentagon; the wreckage of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where the actions of heroic citizens saved even more heartbreak and destruction.

Whether one agrees or not that Bin Laden has just been killed by U.S Special Forces, his announced death certainly brings closure to the threat posed by him as the mastermind behind the 911 attacks, and as the head of Al Qaeda. There has been, however, much evidence that 911 was a contrived incident, and that Bin Laden and Al Qaeda were puppets for mysterious forces that operated at the highest levels of government in the U.S. and internationally. These forces operate clandestinely to manufacture new global threats to justify the massive U.S. military industrial complex, and an enormous number of covert operations run by the CIA and other intelligence agencies around the world.

Bin Laden’s announced death clears the path for a new contrived global threat. Now what would be the new threat? To answer that question, we can turn to someone who had deep insider knowledge of the mysterious forces behind the U.S. military industrial complex and covert operations around the world. A mysterious force that has more than ample means, resources and opportunities to manufacture global threats.

Dr Werner von Braun was one of architects of the NASA space program, and before that helped Hitler’s Nazi Germany in the development of the V1 and V2 rockets. During his decades in advanced military and aerospace research, von Braun became very familiar with inner workings of the military industrial complex. More importantly, he learned at first hand how global threats are manufactured or contrived by mysterious forces in control of the U.S. military industrial complex. During the final four years of his life, he confided his deepest fears on what these mysterious forces had in mind for the world. This is what he said, according to Carol Rosin who worked with him at the Fairchild aerospace company:

What was most interesting to me was a repetitive sentence that he said to me over and over again during the approximately four years that I had the opportunity to work with him. He said the strategy that was being used to educate the public and decision makers was to use scare tactics That was how we identify an enemy. The strategy that Wernher Von Braun taught me was that first the Russians are going to be considered to be the enemy. In fact, in 1974, they were the enemy, the identified enemy. We were told that they had “killer satellites”. We were told that they were coming to get us and control us-that they were “Commies.”
Then terrorists would be identified, and that was soon to follow. We heard a lot about terrorism. Then we were going to identify third-world country “crazies.” We now call them Nations of Concern. But he said that would be the third enemy against whom we would build space-based weapons.
The next enemy was asteroids. Now, at this point he kind of chuckled the first time he said it.
Asteroids- against asteroids we are going to build space-based weapons.
And the funniest one of all was what he called aliens, extraterrestrials. That would be the final scare. And over and over and over during the four years that I knew him and was giving speeches for him, he would bring up that last card. “And remember Carol, the last card is the alien card. We are going to have to build space-based weapons against aliens and all of it is a lie.”

Osama bin Laden’s death will not end the need for new enemies to justify the enormous expenditures to run the military industrial complex, and the covert programs that help create the global and political circumstances supporting such expenditures. New enemies will be found. Von Braun’s warning about a contrived extraterrestrial enemy is not science fiction. There are many hints that the American public is being conditioned and prepared for the announcement of an extraterrestrial threat by a multitude of movies and television programs. War of the Worlds, The Event, V, Skyline, Battle: Los Angeles, Cowboys & Aliens are but a few of the recent movies and TV shows that portray extraterrestrials as the new enemy. Almost exactly one year ago, one of the world’s foremost astrophysicists, Professor Stephen Hawking, described extraterrestrial life in terms of a new kind of global threat if they were ever discovered.

Osama bin Laden’s death closes one chapter in what America has been conditioned to accept as a global threat. Now a new chapter will follow. Perhaps that chapter is already well underway with a covert psychological warfare program using the US media and key scientists. Advanced space based weapons have been covertly developed and deployed. The groundwork has been laid for contriving extraterrestrials as a threat like no other. This would enable the funding and development of advanced space based weapons, super solider programs and other exotic technological operations to move from the black covert world of little known military corporate programs, into the white world of congressionally mandated appropriations through the Department of Defense. All that remains is for an announcement by President Obama that extraterrestrial life is real, and they form a new type of global threat.

Stories of flying saucer crashes secretly retrieved by elite military teams have been boosted with the release of a new electronic reading room by the FBI known as “The Vault.” Among the documents first released by the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and now more easily accessible to the American public in The Vault is one by Special Agent Guy Hottel. In 1950, Hottel sent a memorandum to J. Edgar Hoover about flying saucer crashes. The Hottel memo is causing a sensation in Britain since the Daily Mail discussed it in a provocative article titled: The memo that ‘proves aliens landed at Roswell’… released online by the FBI.”. The Daily Mail story was quickly followed by other major media outlets. The memo is startling since it reveals that an unidentified Air Force Investigator, most likely with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, was relaying accurate information about three flying saucer crashes recovered by the Air Force in the 1940s to an FBI Special Agent.

The Hottel Memo states:

Three so-called flying saucers had been recovered in New Mexico. They were described as being circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50ft in diameter. Each one was occupied by three bodies of human shape but only 3ft tall dressed in a metallic cloth of a very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed flyers and test pilots.

The document cites as its main source an Air Force investigator without giving details of his rank, position, or how he received the information. Given that the memo’s recipient was none other than FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, it can be safely assumed that the Air Force investigator was a credible military source being cited by an FBI field agent reporting directly to his boss. Hottel’s job as an FBI Special Agent was to relay accurate information of activities coming under his field of operations, or of particular interest to the FBI Director. In relaying such information, Hottel would have to judge the significance and accuracy of the information before relaying it in an official FBI memo to his superior. What the Hottel document does prove is that an Air Force Investigator was willing to share information about crashed flying saucers to an FBI agent who judged the information relevant and significant enough to relay it directly to his superior.

The Hottel memo does not go into specifics as to what flying saucer crashes the Air Force Investigator had in mind. This has led to much speculation and debate among researchers as to whether or not it confirms the 1947 Roswell Crash, or other historic cases such as the 1948 Aztec UFO crash. The FBI’s launch of The Vault has certainly had the effect of sparking public interest in the FBI’s X-Files.

The Dome of the Rock is an Islamic Shrine built over Jerusalem's Temple Mount

Eligael Gedalyovich, who released the first video of a UFO hovering over the Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem on January 28, 2011, claims to have found new video that reveals in greater detail the UFO that appeared that day. Eligael claims to have been present during the filming of the very first video of the Dome of the Rock UFO which he posted to his Youtube channel. Another video soon emerged from a different source (Shshsh331) from another angle, and appeared to independently confirm the original video posted by Eligael. These first two videos have been widely viewed to be the most credible of the videos that have emerged so far of the Dome of the Rock UFO incident. At least one of the subsequent videos that have emerged, has been concluded to be a fake intended to discredit the first two genuine videos. Now Eligael has posted 3 seconds of what he claims to be conclusive proof that the Dome of the Rock UFO was in fact an interplanetary extraterrestrial vehicle.

The new Eligael video shows what appears to be a large metallic shaped flying saucer hovering over the Dome of the Rock, and casting a light in the vicinity. In Eligael’s original video, the UFO was descended over the Dome of the Rock and hovered for about 25 seconds, before quickly shooting up vertically. The new video appears to be a close up of the UFO during the period it was hovering. Eligael claims that the new video is three minutes in total, and the three seconds released so far is a teaser of what’s to come. It appears with captions: “Now the answer is clear” and “We are not alone.” Here’s the video.

Veteran Israeli UFO researcher Barry Chamish, was interviewed on the Kevin Smith show on February 4 about the Dome of the Rock UFO. He talked about the hundreds of witnesses and how the Israeli media and public is vigorously discussing the UFO sighting. He said that he had absolute confidence in the authenticity of the first two videos and claims that Eligael is a credible source. His interview can be heard here: Chamish is one of the few UFO researchers that can speak with authority about UFO sightings in Israel. These first two videos can be seen side by side and provide the context for the new video posted by Eligael.

The new video is bound to raise further controversy over what happened over the Dome of the Rock on January 28. If the Dome of the Rock incident involved an interplanetary vehicle its significance cannot be underestimated. It is a site holy to the world’s three major monotheistic religions: Islam; Judaism; and Christianity. A UFO appearing over the Dome of the Rock may well have the principal function of uniting humanity in response to the imminent appearance of extraterrestrial life. Alternatively, it may be setting the scene for a Second Coming type of event that some believe is part of a covert operation called Project Blue Beam using holographic technologies Was the UFO conducting a form of galactic diplomacy in preparing humanity for events that will point to the existence of extraterrestrial life? Or was it a scene setter for a contrived Second Coming and/or alien invasion?

One thing that is not in dispute is that soon after the January 28, Dome of the Rock incident, Hillary Clinton recalled up to 260 U.S. ambassadors from around the world to Washington DC for a one week conference that began on Monday, February 14. The unprecedented diplomatic recall involved discussion of issues too sensitive even for the Top Secret diplomatic communication channels used by the State Department. It is worth pointing out that the Wikileaks material that has been released so far involves diplomatic cables classified below Top Secret (Secret and Confidential) that were widely shared between different U.S. bureaucracies. In this writer’s opinion, the State Department recall was related to forthcoming events with momentous global significance that far exceeded in scope the official agenda released to the U.S. media.

If the new video posted by Eligael is genuine and conclusive proof of the visitation of extraterrestrial life over one of humanity’s most important religious sites, then it would qualify as the kind of global event that would have required secret discussions by the diplomatic elite of the U.S. in a highly secure environment. Eligael has given no date for when the rest of new video will be released. If genuine, its contents may well change the world as we know it.
