Why Would The Government Lie About Osama's Death?

Why do these idiots think we're dead?
If there's one thing that could be learned from these conspiracy theorists, it's that most of the time they're insanely entertaining,but are they insane? Yes, most of them are. Then again blind faith in the government is equally insane. Sure it's not popular to withhold information from the general populace, but us rational individuals know why they have to keep certain things from us. It's to either protect us, business interests, or keep our enemies from getting dangerous information. A fully transparent government would be absurd, especially in this- the age of the internet. But a shady government like that of Libya, North Korea, or China, is equally as shitty as a fully transparent one. As Americans we take this balanced amount of information we receive for granted. A prime example of that would be, of course, the death (killing/murder/assassination/ whatever your view of that is) of Osama Bin Laden. While reading all these Osama conspiracy theories, I thought to myself, "what would be the point of lying about Bin Laden's death?" So I came up with a few bullshit reasons that our government would lie about his death.

  • 1. Our overlords are preparing a big event to take away more of our "freedoms"(the reason I put that inside quotation marks is because, I might be a bit naive but since 9/11 the only freedom I feel I personally lost was the freedom to keep my shoes on in the Airport terminal during a security check.) They're going to stage a giant event for us to be afraid of so that they can equip us all with those fancy RFID chips (google it) and be able to track our every movement. Yes some people really think this way.
  • 2. To balance the budget. I never see any conspiracy theorists talk about this but by all means it seems very plausible when you think about it. We bit the head off the snake so we can slowly start to pull out, slowly start spending less on the war effort eventually converting it into a reconstruction effort. We can start watching oil prices drop which in turn would mean the cost of transporting goods would drop meaning lower prices on goods which would translate into Americans getting more for their buck, which in turn would leave more money in the pockets of Americans for which they can spend on education, retirement, or just superfluous shit to further boost our dwindling economy.We'll lose our dreaded imperialistic stereotype and watch international relations improve. Could that happen, well it's a long shot but it's possible. 
  • 3.Our government just likes fucking with us. Those in power love to see us inflamed, scared, joyous, and confused. It's sort of a sick game for these business leaders who have too much money and too much free time, they study us and gauge our reactions, we're all some part of a huge experiment on human nature. That sounds cool, it also sounds like bullshit.
I'm not one to buy into conspiracy theories, but trying to figure out what these people think is going on is a pretty fun thing to do. With all the details about Bin Laden's death and the cause of it becoming more and more clear, it's nice to think we know the whole story, but we don't and we probably never will. So the next time you read or hear something from Alex Jones or some other person you'd call a deranged lunatic, don't just stop reading or stop listening. Embrace what they're saying and think on your own. For every secret there's billions of possible truths that we just don't know so don't let one person tell you something and you buy into it, we need you speculate on your own, ask your own questions, and come to your own conclusions. Share them with others rationally, not like some crazy asshat calling those who don't believe what you believe "sheep" defend your views, and embrace other plausibilities and add on to your own.
For the record, there's no UFO at area 51- but hey what do I know. Now if you excuse me I have to go boil my water to make sure the fluoride is too ineffective to convince me to vote for Barack Obama in 2012. Expand your mind dudes.

  1. My biggest complaint about conspiracy theories is that while those who support them supply good evidence and logical points those who oppose them just talk about how crazy and stupid the supporters are. If someone makes a logical point it deserves an equally logical rebuttal.

  10. I do agree with you that the government has to withhold some information so it doesn't get into the wrong hands, but how much and what information is withheld is only up to the government itself. So if there is someone who wants to withhold some information about some certain things and is in the government, he could make sure that none of this goes public and maybe earn a sh*tload of money. I guess all of you know that money is power and power is the only thing mankind actually desires in the end.
    Conspiracy theorists are arguing with facts and information with a valid background so everything is understandable and proven not to be made up. What is the rest of the people doing? Either they are listening or they are just claiming: 'Ah those conspiracy theorists again, they are just making up stuff that could not possibly be true!' Poor arguing and as far as I know humans I rather tend to believe conspiracy theorists that state that certain events have occurred in the past due to a few individuals willing to do anything to gain more money!

  11. I can't stand conspirators. Even when something is proven, they'll still find something to get suspicious about. Obama's birth certificate is a perfect example.
