CIA Asset Tim Osmond...aka Osama Bin Laden
Did anyone hear the cspan caller last Friday mention Osama's code name as Tim Osmond? Any thoughts on that?


CIA missed chance with Bin Laden LLaden

Issue date: 8/31/05

Early this year, Krongard suggested capturing Bin Laden wasn't such a good idea, saying, "You can make the argument we're better off with him (at large). Because if something happens to bin Laden, you might fight a lot of people vying for his position and demonstrating how macho they are by unleashing a stream of terror."

Bin Laden was a CIA asset from 1979 to 1989, when he went under the codename of "Tim Osmond." The CIA's treatment of him, even after the rise of anti-Western Muslim extremism, leaves the possibility he remains an asset to this day. Also questionable was the Sept. 11 breakfast meeting on Capitol Hill of then House and Senate intelligence heads Porter Goss and Bob Graham with Mahmoud Ahmad, head of Pakistani intelligence. According to Indian intelligence, it was Ahmad's agency that had recently wired $100,000 to Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker.

The three were still eating as the planes hit the World Trade Center in New York. According to Senator Graham, during the meeting, "We were talking about terrorism, specifically terrorism generated from Afghanistan." Goss also has his hands dirty from Operation Mongoose (the plan to overthrow Castro) from his time as a CIA officer from 1962 to 1972.

As the 9/11 Commission showed, any investigative team from within the power structures of the U.S. government is going to come to the same conclusions: our government was not complicit, and any failings were an honest mistake
