Finding Bin Laden: The Truth Behind the Official Story

Gareth Porter, Truthout: "It is now clear that CIA officials were blatantly misrepresenting both bin Laden’s role in al-Qaeda when he was killed and how the agency came to focus on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

 In fact, during his six years in Abbottabad, bin Laden was not the functioning head of al-Qaeda at all, but an isolated figurehead who had become irrelevant to the actual operations of the organization.

The real story, told here for the first time, is that bin Laden was in the compound in Abbottabad because he had been forced into exile by the al-Qaeda leadership."

Former Bush Aide: Mitt Romney ‘Etch-A-Sketched’ Openly Gay Spokesman Off Campaign

As you may have heard through the din of President Obama’s trip to Afghanistan, yesterday afternoon Richard Grenell, Mitt Romney’s newly-hired foreign policy spokesman, resigned from the campaign.

The thing that made Grenell’s resignation notable is that he is gay—and his hiring prompted a furious backlash from the homophobic right, which declared victory upon his departure. The Romney campaign strenuously denies that it wanted Grenell to quit, but it’s clear that they refused to publicly defend him from the right-wing bullying, and based on this report from Alexander Burns and Maggie Haberman, Grenell believes he was hung out to dry:
