I call Dustbin Laden "a James Bond in disguise." Because he was a double agent. I would not believe most of what this video here says. I saw a video of a lecture of Prof. Michel Chossudovski, who said, chuckling, that Dustbin was not in fact what he was pictured to be. The Prof said: "He is protected on the highest echelons" - and he said more, but I would not be allowed to write it down here, so much it is in opposition of what we are told officially. And the Prof. said he had some of his information from Dan Rather, Canadian reporter assigned to American affairs. Try to find that video what I saw, and think. Prof. Chossudovski teaches economics at Univ. of Ottawa and he is Director of the "Center of Research for Globalization." Ok, so, if Dustbin was not what he is believed by the public to be, well, it turned out that Tovarish Gorbachov was also a double agent, a seemingly Communist "enemy," but his invasion of Afghanistan was the pretext for Dustbin's heroic fight against Communism and the support he and Hell Kakaida got from the West. And today Tovarish Gorbachov is Lord Gorbachov. There you are, first he was an "enemy," and later a "friend." And Dustbin was a "friend" first, and later an "enemy." Nothing is what it seems, we are being fooled by international intrigue makers.

Directed by Darren Conway in 2004, this 56-minute documentary depicts a life of one of the world's most notorious figures.
At the time, he was still alive contemplating another US attack.
The film uses first-person accounts to trace the influential events in Bin Laden's life from his privileged childhood in Saudi Arabia to his battles with the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, culminating in the evenets leading to the 9/11 attack.
It provides profound insight into the man who masterminded the most deadly terrorist act of our times.
