Found: Secret CIA Bin Laden Training Facility…or Stage?
by Zen Gardner
Here’s something I just stumbled upon in the news.
Before you read the article below, just think. They’ve supposedly found a fugitive’s hide out and assume they have enough time to reconstruct the whole thing and practice rather than just go in and get him? Nonsense. Whatta scam. He’d been dead for 10 years already anyway.
So while something did apparently transpire at a similar location in Pakistan, this way they can be sure they get certain camera shots for the cover story and it goes down according to plan. And as you’ll see below, they erased the evidence of the so-called “training” location completely….as well as the Navy SEALs that supposedly performed the fake operation who were conveniently shot down in a helicopter in Afghanistan.
The whole operation was full of holes from the get go, but this makes a nice final nail in the coffin if you ask me.
Satellite Images of the CIA’s Secret Bin Laden Training Facility
One of the reasons U.S. Navy SEALs were able to so skillfully execute the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound last year was a CIA training facility in North Carolina that mirrored the architecture of bin Laden’s actual compound in Pakistan. In 2011, during those crucial months that SEAL Team Six trained there, it was one of the most secretive facilities on U.S. soil. Now, for the first time, the facility has been revealed on Bing’s satellite map service during a phase when it was under construction. Peekaboo!
That’s an aerial shot of Harvey Point Defense Testing, a CIA training facility in North Carolina. It was taken on February 15, 2011. Look familiar? Here’s a shot of Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, shortly after the May 2011 raid.
It’s a fascinating discovery and it’s all thanks to the eagle-eyed folks over at Cryptome.com, who identified the compound this morning after reading the book No Easy Day by former SEAL Team Six member Matt Bissonnette. In multiple passages in the book, Bissonnette mentions training for the raid in North Carolina. “This training exercise down in North Carolina sounded like another bad mission. But I wouldn’t know until Monday,” Bissonnette writes in the book. From there, the folks over at Cryptome apparently pored over acres of satellite imagery of CIA facilities in North Carolina. Below is a view of the larger CIA center with the mock-up circled in red:
But here’s where this gets really interesting. What happens when you view the same training facility at the same coordinates on Google Maps instead of Bing?
Poof! Vanished! It’s gone:
Apparently, just like the real-life compound in Pakistan, the CIA’s mock-up compound has also been destroyed. Anybody know why? (It’s an open question.) The other thing we can divine from this is that Bing apparently has less up-to-date maps than Google. But in this case, that’s quite a valuable feature! Source
