The political conversation about the Bin Laden raid, a key event in the counter-terrorism paradigm, is based on a government-created conspiracy theory. People argue about the nitty-gritty details of the raid as if it actually happened in the real world. Since May 1, 2011, numerous versions of the infamous raid has come out, each one contradicting the other.
Instead of asking if the raid is real, political commentators and columnists are debating about which version of the raid is true. In effect, they are conspiracy theorists, something that they accuse 9/11 truth-tellers of because they can’t handle the truth.
It is difficult for any society to challenge and question the credibility of the ruling regime by deconstructing its official myths and narratives. So it is totally understandable why liberals, conservatives, and libertarians still believe in the validity of the 9/11 story despite the emergence of evidence that points to the U.S and Israeli governments as the main perpetrators behind the events.
