US Intelligence : Bin Laden Read About ‘Illuminati Conspiracy Theories’ and MKULTRA


The National Intelligence recently released a list of books that were (apparently) retrieved from Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan. He apparently enjoyed reading about the Illuminati, occultism, MKULTRA and even 9/11 conspiracy theories. Is mass media trying to associate the ‘truth movement’ with terrorism with a phony book list? 

Four years after the triumphant announcement of Osama Bin Laden’s death by the US government, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence recently released a list of books allegedly found in his compound. This list of English-language books can almost be dubbe ‘conspiracy for beginners’  with titles such as Fritz Springmeier’s “Bloodlines of the Illuminati”, John Coleman’s “The Committee of 300”, the 1977 MKULTRA hearings and Manly P. Hall’s “Secret Teachings of All Ages”. Bin Laden apparently also enjoyed reading about US Foreign policy and 9/11 conspiracy theories. Here’s the full list of of books as reported by BBC.

After the release of this information, mass media newspapers (such as The Guardian) jumped on the story to ridicule “truthers” and to slyly associate them with terrorists.

Obsessed with plots to ruin America, terrified of bugs implanted in tooth fillings or women’s clothing, and secluded away from even his confidants, Osama bin Laden may not have been in the most healthy frame of mind during his years in hiding.

It should perhaps come as no surprise, then, that his personal library included conspiracy theories about the occult, the Illuminati – and even 9/11.
– The Guardian, 9/11 truthers (naturally) wary of Osama bin Laden’s conspiracy theory obsession

In the above article, The Guardian goes as far as shaming David Ray Griffin, the author of “The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11″ because Bin Laden apparently owned that book.

The Guardian does not seem to know that US intelligence and the CIA are not exactly about journalistic accuracy. They are about propaganda and information wars. When they release “information”, it is not because they believe this information is “interesting to know”, it is because it serves a specific purpose. This entire “book” story seems completely fabricated to serve a specific purpose. Why even release this information? Is it because it serves the on-going Agenda of vilify “truth seekers” and to associate them with terrorism?

To make things even more convenient, there are no physical copies of these books – Bin Laden apparently preferred PDF e-books.

The timing of the release of this information is also strange. Why come up with this story more than four years after the death announcement? This story (along with one claiming that Bin Laden was planning another major attack) was made public only days after the release of Seymour M. Hersh’s “The Killing of Bin Laden”. In his 10,000-word article, the Pulitzer Prize winner described how the entire story behind the killing of Bin Laden was falsified by the CIA. Hersh even points out in his article that there was no “treasure trove of information” retrieved from Bin Laden’s compound.

“Despite all the talk,’ the retired official continued, there were ‘no garbage bags full of computers and storage devices. The guys just stuffed some books and papers they found in his room in their backpacks. The Seals weren’t there because they thought bin Laden was running a command centre for al-Qaida operations, as the White House would later tell the media. And they were not intelligence experts gathering information inside that house.’


Five days after the raid the Pentagon press corps was provided with a series of videotapes that were said by US officials to have been taken from a large collection the Seals had removed from the compound, along with as many as 15 computers. Snippets from one of the videos showed a solitary bin Laden looking wan and wrapped in a blanket, watching what appeared to be a video of himself on television. An unnamed official told reporters that the raid produced a ‘treasure trove … the single largest collection of senior terrorist materials ever’, which would provide vital insights into al-Qaida’s plans. The official said the material showed that bin Laden ‘remained an active leader in al-Qaida, providing strategic, operational and tactical instructions to the group … He was far from a figurehead [and] continued to direct even tactical details of the group’s management and to encourage plotting’ from what was described as a command-and-control centre in Abbottabad. ‘He was an active player, making the recent operation even more essential for our nation’s security,’ the official said. The information was so vital, he added, that the administration was setting up an inter-agency task force to process it: ‘He was not simply someone who was penning al-Qaida strategy. He was throwing operational ideas out there and he was also specifically directing other al-Qaida members.’

These claims were fabrications: there wasn’t much activity for bin Laden to exercise command and control over. The retired intelligence official said that the CIA’s internal reporting shows that since bin Laden moved to Abbottabad in 2006 only a handful of terrorist attacks could be linked to the remnants of bin Laden’s al-Qaida. ‘We were told at first,’ the retired official said, ‘that the Seals produced garbage bags of stuff and that the community is generating daily intelligence reports out of this stuff. And then we were told that the community is gathering everything together and needs to translate it. But nothing has come of it. Every single thing they have created turns out not to be true. It’s a great hoax – like the Piltdown man.’ The retired official said that most of the materials from Abbottabad were turned over to the US by the Pakistanis, who later razed the building. The ISI took responsibility for the wives and children of bin Laden, none of whom was made available to the US for questioning.

‘Why create the treasure trove story?’ the retired official said. ‘The White House had to give the impression that bin Laden was still operationally important. Otherwise, why kill him? A cover story was created – that there was a network of couriers coming and going with memory sticks and instructions. All to show that bin Laden remained important.”
– Seymour M. Hersh, The Killing of Osama Bin Laden

People often forget the fact that Bin Laden was an ex-CIA operative who was used to advance the US agenda in Afghanistan against the USSR in the 1980s. He was used again (as a boogeyman) to advance the US agenda in Afghanistan (and around the world) from 2001 to 2011.

When one considers that Bin Laden was a pawn in an international game of chess, that he might have died long before the “announced’ symbolic date of May 1st 2011 (read my article about it here) and that 9/11 was an inside job, then the truth about this “book story” becomes evident: It is a rather heavy-handed attempt to associate “truthers”, “conspiracy theorists” and anyone who questions mass media with terrorism.

He was reported killed on 3 separate occasions. Nothing surrounding him and the media is accurate!

1 year 27 days ago

Osama, the then most powerful Arabian multimillionaire's only aim in life, even during his Afghan war against USSR was always to "Clear Palestine from Zionist Jews". Zionists retaliated using USA as financial, military and media vehicle. Greater Israel clearly won but US paid all the costs thru depleted economy, ruined freedom and global bad name.

Which Bin Laden was into conspiracy?

The real one, the one who Benzhiar Bhuuto said was killed by another terrorista or the one they say we killed? Or maybe one of the CNN stunt doubles?

I'm confused…

Its not quite surprising that Bin Laden was a fall guy for the US agenda in the middle east as the "Corrupt Intelligence Agency" plans to further its interest by starting off their own war and blaming it on so-called terrorists for it as I've read in past articles about their own war going on. And yet conspiracy theorists and whistle blowers are being labelled as terrorists when all they're doing is exposing the truth that the elite does not want the masses to know about regarding their plans for a New World Order/ One World Government. Regardless of how they try to come up with smoke screens to cover up on what really happened and what their actual plans were, there are other ways in which the truth can still come out without ever being distorted. Propaganda and Information Wars are surely the other actual names of the game… Read more »

I don't get it. He was supposedly killed in 2011, and what is the point of releasing this info 4 years later? And I am not surprised since he and his family had close ties with the Bushes. Bush Sr. was the Director of CIA.

The day the American public and also the rest of the world will actually understand all this BS, is the day the elite or whoever feeds this BS to people will tremble.

I do not live in the US but I have been there on several occasions, for months at a time. When I look at the news on VC lately, I tremble at the thoughts of going back there.

Is it ignorance? Is there any hope left for the USA? Why do people take for truth whatever they hear on the TV. I have been reading on the Kennedys then on the Kings and the Lincolns…these things should be obvious by now.

Or did the elite or whoever succeed at blinding people over the ever so popular "patriotism"???

This whole "100+ Docs" story is complete bullshit. The man died in 2001 and was buried in Tora Bora. There is no authentic proof of his existence after that, just lies like this article. You cannot prove anything with computer docs. Langley has had 4 years to get the release just the way they want it. There area "million" other docs, surely not all pertinent to National Security. Let's see them.

No doubt that the death of Osama on Beltane was a major sacrifice. But if he really died several years earlier, it wouldn't be a true sacrifice. The Illuminati must perform a real sacrifice on this day to gain power from Lucifer, from what I've read. Also, interesting that he read Fritz Springmeier, because as a CIA operative, he could have been mind controlled himself. Perhaps his programming was breaking down, and memories were returning so they decided to sacrifice him on this date.

This is nothing but a "black list" of books that are actively exposing the truth of what a screwed up nation we live in.

Unsurprisingly, nearly ALL of those books and articles are 'controlled opposition'… books put out by zionist controlled western 'intelligence' agents (Greg Palast!!?)…pure BS – strictly for the 30% of western population true-believers….someone should sue the gov't for this shit – make them provide detailed answers to what are straight up crimes..even f you lose you win…like the "Holocaust denial" trial in Toronto….if ever there was a cryptic win following a losing verdict,, that was it, imho…

Don't feel Springmeier is BS. He's the real deal in my opinion.

actually i would say some books made the list, populated largely with deception to make them look just as bad. john perkins economic hitman story is likely true.

there was a brief story that police armaments are to be reduced in the US… isnt that what hitler did in ww2 fearing a coup?
i also noticed it is hard to find the documentary beyond treason for sale.

We need to keep printed copies of these documents. Book banning and book burning aren't too far away I'm afraid. Electronic and .pdf copies aren't enough.

What a big scam this government keeps creating and piling more on to ………

I think this phony book list is just to try to Psychologically Manipulate the Public into associating these authors and their books with terrorism……. to make the public believe that anyone who reads these books and their authors can be considered domestic terrorists….

Anyone who has heard of illuminati had their ears perk up instantly the moment the newscaster said such. It was such a completely obvious dig at conspiracy theorists you couldn't miss it. If there was nothing to worry about they would not have put it out there. Clearly they are unhappy that the truth is being told on the Internet and picking up steam.
Tough thing for everyone is when they give the Internet to un in October of this year. The Internet is our last freedom of speech. Mass media has already been taken over. Can anyone imagine a world with no freedom of press? Well we are headed for that and a whole lot more…

It seems to me that they are searching for a reason to ban books and websites related to the truth movement that exposes the Illuminati and the NWO. The terror connections is the perfect excuse to do so.

I find the timing (Politically propogandistic, I think) interesting since the official death of Osama Bin Laden was several years ago. This reminds me of the release of Sadam Hussein's art collection with American fantasy artists.

"The Guardian does not seem to know that US intelligence and the CIA are not exactly about journalistic accuracy. They are about propaganda and information wars." On the contrary VC, the Guardian knows this all too well, for it is nothing but another tentacle on the multi-tentacled controlling octopus. Left wing, right wing, both wings on the same bird. The Guardian (or Grauniad as it's commonly referred to in the UK by non Guardian readers) is a left wing rag. It's a diabolically partial broadsheet that promotes the LGBT, multicultural, indigenous destruction, feminist, pro anti racism and pro anti family propaganda. It's editor and owners are all no doubt in bed with the CIA, FBI, NSA, FED, MOSSAD and all other organisations that are pushing for world government, a world banking system and a totalitarian socialist state. In a nutshell there isn't one main stream media outlet that isn't controlled.

Other than referring to the bible, can anyone please give a valid reason why the lgbt community is considered so bad? Honestly. That's like the wingnuts at Landover Baptist demonizing vegetarians and vegans as child predators. I swear I'm not making that up. I don't enjoy consuming murdered animals, but that doesn't mean I have sick designs on children. For the lgbt community, I feel everyone deserves love and happiness. You can't help who you fall in love with, my trans friend is a kind soul, so why paint good people as bad over a book that has been tampered with in translation to push an agenda on willing people who are encouraged to blindly follow in faith and compare themselves to sheep?
