You see, the neo-cons depend on the image of Osama Bin Laden because he is the modern “Goldstein” who they use to keep us terrified enough to give away our rights, and give most of our federal spending for militarism.
Pakistan’s intelligence service is very tight with the CIA. If they had killed Bin Laden, we’d know about it. So, what is the story with Bin Laden?
Immediately after the attacks of 9/11, Osama Bin Laden actually denied any connection with the 9/11 attacks, and denounced them as a tactic:

The Al-Qaidah group had nothing to do with the 11 September attacks on the USA, according to Usama bin Ladin in an interview with the Pakistani newspaper Ummat. Usama bin Ladin went on to suggest that Jews or US secret services were behind the attacks, and to express gratitude and support for Pakistan, urging Pakistanâ€™s people to jihad against the West. The following is the text of an interview conducted by a "special correspondent", published in the Pakistani newspaper Ummat on 28 September, place and date of interview not given.
THEN, two months later the infamous “Fat Bin Laden” video tape is supposedly found by the CIA in some house the Taliban forces had held in Afghanistan, and conveniently left behind for the CIA to find. This video has been analyzed by experts who say, exactly what your eyes tell you when you look at it, it is NOT Bin Laden. BUT, this fake Bin Laden DOES take responsibility for the 9/11 attacks.

The Bush Admin, CIA’s Goldstein is born. The similarity between this manufactured Bin Laden and Goldstein in 1984, has not gone unnoticed. Steve Watson in an insightful article for Prisonplanet.com wrote,
“Spying? Torture? Illegal airstrikes? SHUT UP and hate Bin Laden.
The NeoCon use of Osama Bin Laden as a tool of fear and control is a tried and tested method whenever the going gets tough. It's predictable and it's tiresome, but the masses buy it every time and that's why he has reappeared once again.
Just as the NSA spying tidal wave gathers increasing momentum, as the media demand more answers on rendition and torture and days after the bizarre airstrike on innocent women and children in Pakistan, we all magically get a timely reminder of just why the government is spying on its own citizens and torturing and killing anyone it likes anywhere in the world.
Just like Orwell's ubiquitous Emmanuel Goldstein, Bin Laden always seems to pop up right on cue so we can disengage our minds from reality and join in the two minutes hate.
We are reliably informed by the mainstream media that this is because he is a very clever man and has an impeccable sense of timing. Yet if this is the case, why can he not work out that EVERYTIME he has released a video or a tape it has HELPED Bush and the NeoCon agenda tenfold?
