Update! A name has been given, Staff Sgt. Robert Bales. “Two other soldiers” are supposedly also being questioned who supposedly drank with the supposed R. Bales before this supposed person supposedly went shooting.
How strange. First it was declared that the name would be kept secret to protect his family. This means that either they actually don’t give a crap about the family OR there is no Robert Bales anyway, so why worry? This story changes more often than Casey Anthony’s did.
In spite of the recordings and videos indicating that shots were fired from that infamous Grassy Knoll, and the fact that Kennedy and others were hit by multiple bullets, our government still sticks to their story that it was a Lone Gunman firing from the Book Depository. In the process of establishing this pack of lies as truth, the bullets were all somehow lost including the ones in Kennedy’s head, along with a good chunk of his skull. Perhaps a surgeon took it for a souvenir?
Subsequently, all the primary witnesses to his murder died, 32 of them I believe, within a few weeks of his killing, and under very strange circumstances. This includes, of course, Lee Harvey Oswald himself, who was killed right in the middle of that Texas police station by one Jack Ruby, a man with mob connections, who then died himself of a very rare and extremely rapid and aggressive form of cancer.
So I wonder how many are going to die over this latest Lone Gunman Theory. The Afghans have been convnced that there was a slaughter of innocents, even though a lot doesn’t add up, because they’ve been told there was a slaughter. Pretty much the way we were told Kennedy was killed.
However, they are convinced that there was more than one gunman. There was a group of them. Is this story beginning to sound familiar? There were a lot of witnesses and they say that there were multiple weapons being fired from different places. Single rifle shots over here, automatic rifle fire over there, and lots of it all over. Yep, sounds like Lee Harvey Oswald was working his magic again.
The embellishment of this fable is growing. Now we’re told that the Lone Gunman saw a comrade get a leg blown off the day before. Ahh. Really? WHO? Name that amputee, if you don’t mind, huh?
Our military will not release the name of The Lone Gunman “to protect his family” and neither will his lawyer. You know what? I believe that. We will never be given a name, because no soldier of ours did it.
That there was shooting in the village is pretty much a given because it woke up the whole damn village. That a few people may have been killed is a possibility, even a likelihood considering that they needed at least some bodies and there’s always good candidates for death among any large group of Muslims.
That one of our guys was directing this debacle as well as he could, considering the loose-cannon mindset of the Afghan males-with-guns, I don’t doubt either, but he was no soldier. He was a Special Worker, a CIA or other agency operative, which has everything to do with why we will never be given a name. The reports by the villagers of multiple shooters fits perfectly with the rest of this bungled operation, as that fits with Afghan behavior in spite of their being told to “keep it down”, which I’m sure they would have been. No doubt once they heard the first shot, they all started firing.
Then we have the charred bodies. If one gunman was running around shooting, from house to house, and he didn’t set any fires, how did those bodies get burnt? That was another screw-up by the Afghan assistants to this Chinese fire drill. It reminds me of that old joke about the nervous bank robber who told the teller, “Don’t stick around, this is a fuck up.”
They needed a big body count to ensure sufficient rage and horror against us awful Americans, so some of those dimwitted Afghan men-with-guns raided a funeral home, most likely, and took the corpses of females who’d died in a house fire. Females don’t count over there, so taking them wouldn’t have upset anyone much and the family would be happy to keep their mouths shut considering the bribe that was offered. Besides, they got them back afterward anyway.
Probably the few male bodies were those unpopular villagers and the rest were brought in from here and there.
Quite an accomplishment for one lone, mentally disturbed Army grunt with a rifle, don’t you think? Now I’m waiting for the reason they’re gonna give, and you can bet on it that they will, of why some corpses were charred. That’s a loose end that they have to snip off but first they have to set up something plausible. That’s why we haven’t heard the why of it yet after all this time. Up until now they’ve been hoping that part of the story would fade away but sure as Hell, some damn independent reporter will keep pecking away at it and they’ll have to come up with something.
I have to laugh. You can also bet that there’s some red faces and really pissed off Army and CIA people over that little screw up. This reminds me so much of the Kennedy assassination. It was messed up so badly, there were so many loose ends, that the only way to cover things up was to kill off the witnesses. I wonder what the fallout will be over this mess?
