Another Stratfor leak story? Yes. Pay attention: This stuff matters, even if the major media refuses to see its importance.
One of the "liberated" Stratfor emails reveals that Pakistan knew where Bin Laden was all along
I know what you're going to say: Not much of a "revelation." We all guessed as much on day one. But there's a difference between surmise and evidence, and the Stratfor emails could provide congressional investigators with a path toward hard proof. Whoever produced those emails may be subpoenaed; the story can be traced to its source.
Which brings us to the larger issue: Why isn't Congress looking into the Bin Laden mystery?
Ten years ago, there would have been an official inquiry. Now, if you type the words "congressional investigation" into Google, the first autocompletion involves Planned Parenthood. Apparently, the possibility that Pakistan collaborated with Bin Laden is considered unworthy of scrutiny.
Everyone knows that the ISI (Pakistani intelligence) used to work closely with the Americans. So if the authorities in Pakistan were protecting Bin Laden, American intelligence might well have caught wind of the fact. After all, Stratfor did. In fact, Stratfor knew that the Americans knew.

But, I get a very clear sense we (US intel) know names and
Why are so few in the American media willing to talk about the Stratfor material? Is the "Pakistan knew" story going to go down the memory hole, just like the story about the commando raid that crippled the Iranian nuclear threat? As noted earlier
, the JTA story about that raid was unceremoniously obliterated from its website. No apologies; no explanations. Just raw censorship.
Why is this
India, Venezuela, Russia, Israel, Bulgaria. All around the globe, stories stemming from the stolen Stratfor emails are resulting in big news — except in the United States.
WikiLeaks began publishing the more than 5 million stolen and confidential emails Monday stolen from the Austin-based private intelligence firm Stratfor. So far, in the U.S., the story about stealing the emails has been bigger than the stories the emails themselves reveal.
If you dare even to whisper that the U.S. news is managed, people will accuse you of being a conspiracy crank. Nevertheless, America's pseudojournalists refuse to treat any story as important unless and until they see an imprimatur from either the U.S. government or the RNC.
