Scripting Bin Laden’s Last Act

Scripting Bin Laden’s Last Act, Richard
Blow, TomPaine.com
Though the military and Bin Laden have yet to enter the end game,
the script has already been written, writes author Richard Blow in
TomPaine.com. ‘…[I]t’s reasonable to assume that
ever since September 11th, White House officials have been
strategizing a Bin Laden end game. The goal: To kill Bin Laden
without martyring him. The method: First, discredit him, to
diminish his value as a martyr. Second, ensure that his death does
not come at the hands of U.S. soldiers. Even if it does.’ In this
light the recent release of the Bin Laden videotape takes on a
different kind of significance. Blow argues that the White House
chose to hold the tapes in order to contribute to the media frenzy
that would ensure the ‘ultimate release saturation coverage’ to
villainize Bin Laden. How exactly does the last dance read? Find
