Wayne Madsen Report - The Killing of Osama bin Laden hoax By Moeen Raoof

Wayne Madsen Report
 The Killing of Osama bin Laden hoax

By Moeen Raoof

One of the greatest deceptions in recent US history was the biggest hoax of them all, the killing of Osama bin Laden, the head of the Al Qaeda terror group, on the night of May 2, 2011 by U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU).
We are led to believe that the most wanted man in the world was hold-up in a compound in the Pakistani cantonment city of Abbottabad, one of the largest military cantonment areas in the country. Bin Laden's compound was allegedly opposite a major military complex and right under the noses of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), the equivalent to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The astounding story really boggles the mind.
As the story goes, SEAL Team Six entered Pakistani airspace during the night of May 2, 2011, at 1 am local time, on board two Sikosky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters. The aircraft are said to have taken off from the city of Jalalabad, in Nangarhar province, Afghanistan, heading for the city of Abbottabad in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province (formerly known as the North-West Frontier Province (NWFP)), located in a neighbouring sovereign nation and covering a distance of approximately 158 miles.

Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk
Furthermore, the two Black Hawk helos are said to have been in the Abbottabad OBL compound area for approximately 40 minutes, with engines running. One Black Hawk was hovering in the air near the compound, while the second helo hovered over the compound where the SEALs slid down ropes into the compound. Aboard the two helos we are told were 25 SEALs, an interpreter, and a tracking dog.
According to reports about the raid, one of the Black Hawks started to shudder uncontrollably in the thin air of the night heat in Pakistan, forcing the pilot to attempt landing the craft. After the tail and rotor hit a wall in the compound, the helo crashed, nose down in the dirt. Luckily, all personnel, including the two pilots, evacuated into the outer courtyard of the building.
The two helos were carrying a full load of personnel with weapons, ammunition, night vision goggles, and full kit, including bulletproof vests, boots, helmets, and extra magazines. The equipment required a minimized strain on the two helos, resulting in the absence of external fuel tanks with their extra fuel loads. Special operations required that with weather factored in, cargo was calculated down to the ounce. In this case, the total distance the helos could cover was 368 miles. The helos were specifically manufactured by Sikorsky for special operations, with mufflers added to the tail rotor and engine sound minimized. Maximum weight load was 11 personnel, not including the pilots.
Taking into account the distance covered from Jalalabad to Abbottabad, 158 miles, and hovering for 40 minutes, or so, equates to a distance of 231 miles from Abbottabad. Total distance, not including hovering period of 40 minutes, would have been 389 miles, with no mention of refueling stop either in Pakistan or Afghanistan. According to the Sikorsky UH-60's performance statistics, the helo has a combat radius of 368 miles.
One of the greatest mysteries regarding the OBL Raid of May 2, 2011, is that Bin Laden was not even wanted for the 9/11 attacks.  The FBI Most Wanted Fugitive poster does not mention the attacks at all.

The “official” White House press release stated the following regarding the OBL raid and killing:

Nineteen SEALs would enter the compound, and three of them would find bin Laden, one official said, providing the exact numbers for the first time. The second [helicopter] was to hover above the roof to drop SEALs there, then land more SEALs outside, plus an interpreter and the dog, who would track anyone who tried to escape and to alert SEALs to any approaching Pakistani security forces. If troops appeared, the plan was to hunker down in the compound, avoiding armed confrontation with the Pakistanis while officials in Washington negotiated their passage out. The two SEAL teams inside would work toward each other, in a simultaneous attack from above and below, their weapons silenced, guaranteeing surprise, one of the officials said. They would have stormed the building in a matter of minutes, as they'd done time and again in two training models of the compound. The other aircraft did not even attempt hovering, landing its SEALs outside the compound. Now, the raiders were outside, and they'd lost the element of surprise. They had trained for this, and started blowing their way in with explosives, through walls and doors, working their way up the three-level house from the bottom. They had to blow their way through barriers at each stair landing, firing back, as one of the men in the house fired at them. They shot three men as well as one woman, whom US officials have said lunged at the SEALs. Small knots of children were on every level, including the balcony of bin Laden's room. As three of the SEALs reached the top of the steps on the third floor, they saw bin Laden standing at the end of the hall. The Americans recognized him instantly, the officials said. Bin Laden also saw them, dimly outlined in the dark house, and ducked into his room.

The three SEALs assumed he was going for a weapon, and one by one they rushed after him through the door, one official described. Two women were in front of bin Laden — yelling and trying to protect him, two officials said. The first SEAL grabbed the two women and shoved them away, fearing they might be wearing suicide bomb vests, they said. The SEAL behind him opened fire at bin Laden, putting one bullet in his chest, and one in his head. It was over in a matter of seconds. Back at the White House Situation Room, word was relayed that bin Laden had been found, signaled by the code word "Geronimo."  That was not bin Laden's code name, but rather a representation of the letter "G."  Each step of the mission was labelled alphabetically, and "Geronimo" meant that the raiders had reached step "G," the killing or capture of bin Laden, two officials said. As the SEALs began photographing the body for identification, the raiders found an AK-47 rifle and a Russian-made Makarov pistol on a shelf by the door they'd just run through. Bin Laden hadn't touched them. They were among a handful of weapons that were removed to be inventoried. It took approximately 15 minutes to reach bin Laden, one official said. The next 23 or so were spent blowing up the broken chopper, after rounding up nine women and 18 children, to get them out of range of the blast. One of the waiting Chinooks flew in to pick up bin Laden's body, the raiders from the broken aircraft and the weapons, documents and other materials seized at the site.
The helicopters flew back to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, and the body was flown to a waiting U.S. Navy ship for bin Laden's burial at sea, ensuring no shrine would spring up around his grave.

Had a Boeing CH-47 Chinook twin-engine tandem rotor heavy-lift helo entered Pakistani airspace and landed or hovered over the OBL Compound in clear sight of one of the largest military bases in Pakistan, it would have been heard long before it would have been seen. Therefore, the scenario of being detained in the compound with Washington having to negotiate their safe passage would have taken place in real time, yet not one of these scenarios came into play. Those familiar with the Chinook helo would be familiar with its size and sound and would be astounded that this craft could enter a built-up area without being noticed.

Boeing CH-47 Chinook
Here is where the greatest raid story starts to unravel. According to witnesses on the ground, including Pakistani military personnel who saw the whole episode from arrival of the two helos, to the crash of one of them and the departure of the other, no other helos were seen approaching or landing near the OBL compound area. So this begs the question, how did 25 SEALs, one interpreter, one tracking dog, and two pilots from the crashed helo, as well as the body of OBL, fit into one UH-60 Black Hawk helo?
Witnesses in Abbottabad have provided first-hand accounts of the night the White House claimed a major triumph, yet not one person on the ground saw a third helo either in the air or approaching the compound to pick up personnel. This is the greatest hoax of our lifetime.
Moeen has in the past also undertaken an investigation of the President Bush Yellowcake/Iraq claim prior to the Iraq invasion by traveling to the Agadez region of Niger at the same time as Ambassador Joseph Wilson’s mission. andBenghazi, Gold for Arms – Libya, Syria, South Sudan and East Africa

Is NSA behind Samsung smart phone immolations? By Wayne Madsen Report

Is NSA behind Samsung smart phone immolations? By Wayne Madsen Report
Samsung may not have to look any further than the National Security Agency's malware as the culprit behind its exploding Galaxy Note 7 smart phones, off of which have been recalled after a number of them began smoking and catching on fire, including one on a Southwest Airlines that forced the evacuation of the aircraft. Samsung has recalled all of its Galaxy Note 7 phones and has ceased production of the model. Experts agree that the problem is with the phone's lithium-ion battery. However, as previously reported by WMR, Samsung phones may be particularly vulnerable to a National Security Agency Trojan implant that purposely drive up the radio frequency (RF) energy of phones to cause the phones to become permanently disabled.

WMR previously reported that NSA's Advanced Network Technology (ANT) Division has fielded special units code-named WATERWITCH that boost the radio frequency (RF) output of mobile phones causing them to overheat and, sometimes, emit smoke and flames. Special equipment code-named TYPHON target specific makes and models of mobile phones.

According to sources inside NSA, this editor was burned by his own Samsung cell phone in January 2011 as a result of NSA cell phone targeting. Although NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden had not yet revealed details of WATERWITCH at the time, NSA sources confirmed the overheating of the Samsung phone was due to a classified NSA program designed to sabotage various phones. Samsung phones appear to be particularly vulnerable to WATERWITCH attacks. The WATERWITCH/TYPHON operational suite can target phones up to a mile away. In densely-populated locations like Louisville International Aiport, where a Galaxy Note 7 began emitting smoke on board Southwest Airlines flight 994 while the plane was boarding passengers at the gate, a mile can take in a number of smart phones.

Is NSA's WATERWITCH behind the burning of Galaxy Note 7 smart phones?

The burn caused by this editor's Samsung phone, began as what was similar to a bad sunburn but soon developed into a second-degree burn with blistering on the right neck and shoulder. This skin burn began on the evening of January 6, 2011. On January 8, NSA insiders informed me that the burn was a result of NSA's highly-classified RF boosting program that targeted specific cell phones. The contour of the burn mark was oddly similar to the two equal halves of the Samsung's flip-top phone, with a white stripe in the middle where the hinge was located.

2011 burns caused by Samsung cell phone.
In its zeal to wage offensive cyber-warfare, NSA has ignored the collateral damage that can be caused by its activities in cyberspace. An example of this is the Stuxnet malicious software worm program developed by NSA and its Israeli counterpart, Unit 2800, to infect Iranian programmable logic controllers (PLCs) that operated the centrifuges used for uranium enrichment. PLCs are found in computers that operate supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems found in various industries, including nuclear power plant operations. The Iranian infection was caused by a Stuxnet-infected USB flash drive being inserted into a Microsoft Windows computer. From Windows, Stuxnet infected Siemens Step 7 software that operated the centrifuge PLCs.

However, the Stuxnet malicious software spread far beyond its intended target. Although 58 percent of the computers infected by Stuxnet were in Iran, the damaging code also infected computer systems in Azerbaijan, Indonesia, India, Pakistan, China, Russia, Germany, Hong Kong, Brunei, Kuwait, South Korea, Canada, Malaysia, the United States, Turkey, and Japan. Stuxnet spawned off two related and similar programs, Duqu and Flame, the latter of which infected computer systems in Palestine, Egypt, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Russia, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, Austria, and Hungary. It was reported that Stuxnet infected the computers that operate the integrated British railway system. Since the deployment of Stuxnet, British rail collisions at Norwich Station, Plymouth Station, on the Abellio Greater Anglia line, and on the Scarborough to Liverpool Lime Street line, were all blamed on varying degrees of system failures. The accidents resulted in one fatality and 38 injuries.

A possible Stuxnet infection of the PLCs that controlled the emergency shutdown operations of the nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant following the March 11, 2011 Tohoku earthquake may have resulted in the meltdowns of the Unit 2 and 3 reactor cores.

Samsung phones catching on fire, railway system security being compromised, and nuclear meltdowns may all be the result of an unsupervised NSA cyber-warfare program that has placed dangerous toys in the hands of infantile generals and admirals.

Friday, October 07, 2016 the latest CIA addition to Internet disinformation By Wayne Madsen Report the latest CIA addition to Internet disinformation
By Wayne Madsen Report
WMR has previously reported on how certain highly-touted websites are nothing more than disseminators of disinformation on behalf of the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA's presence within the "established" and "accepted" Internet media should come as no surprise. Upon its founding in 1947, the CIA made arrangements to place its agents-of-influence within the newsrooms of America's largest newspapers, as well as all radio and television networks.

The so-called "fact-checking" authentication website is the go-to website for CIA propaganda. On April 19, 2016, WMR reported: "
Snopes enjoys a symbiotic relationship with Wikipedia and they often cross-reference their 'anti-conspiracy' drivel. In comments made in Washington, DC two years ago, former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson described and Wikipedia as the two worst reference sites on the Internet. As a telltale sign of their collaboration, the Wikipedia site contains no criticism, such as that leveled by Attkisson and others, against"

We also reported, " is run by a California couple named Barbara and David Mikkelson, who founded the San Fernando Valley Folklore Society . . . The Mikkelsons chose the name Snopes because it is the name of a fictional family featured in William Faulkner's novels that includes a pedophile, a murderer, a bigamist, a corrupt racist politician, and a thief who live in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County in Mississippi. The idea is to label all those targeted by the Mikkelsons as candidates for membership in the Snopes family. As someone who attended the University of Mississippi in Oxford, where Faulkner lived and wrote, and who took more courses on Faulkner than palatable, this editor can point out that Faulkner also, in creating the Snopes family, had in mind the creation of characters resembling bullshit artists like the Mikkelsons." is on record calling WMR a "
disreputable web site." Nothing says "CIA" more than's description of legitimate news reports of CIA director John Brennan being a Wahhabist and Saudi sympathizer as "bogus."

Snopes's most recent dissembling of the truth was to discount reports from Greece that Turkey has been shipping weapons disguised as furniture shipments to Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and affiliated terrorist groups in North Africa and Europe.

Snopes claims that because the story of a Greek Coast Guard interception of a weapons shipment south of the island of Crete dates from 2015, there is no validity to the Turkish connection to weapons shipments to ISIL terrorists. The ship transporting the weapons was the Bolivian-flagged
Haddad 1, operated by Delta Sea Maritime of Turkey. The vessel had loaded twelve containers at the Egyptian port of Alexandria, a favorite weapons shipment location for the CIA. The ship, before stopping in Famagusta in the "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, loaded another three containers at the Turkish port of Iskenderun, the transit port for the shipment of captured weapons from Muammar Qaddafi's arms warehouses to Syrian jihadist rebels. It was the Iskenderun transport operation that involved the late U.S. envoy to Libya Christopher Stevens; Turkish Consul General in Benghazi Ali Sait Akin; CIA director David Petraeus; and, reportedly, senior advisers to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The CIA had to commission its favorite Internet disinformation site to throw cold water on the Turkish weapons links to ISIL because it threatens to expose the CIA's massive weapons smuggling operations to ISIL terrorists that involved Turi Defense Group of Arizona -- a case just buried by the Department of Justice on orders of the Obama administration and the Hillary Clinton campaign -- and other covert weapons transfers being carried out on the orders of "Al Hadj" John Brennan, veteran of the Islamic ritual pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca.

One of the CIA's smuggling operations entailed the 
Belgian-based arms manufacturer Fabrique Nationale (FN), which has a CIA-connected subsidiary called FNH-USA. One particular FN rifle, the Fusil Automatique L├ęger (FAL), was the standard weapon used by the Libyan rebels in 2011 and 2012, including the jihadist group that attacked the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. The FAL, called the "Right Arm of the Free World" during the Cold War, uses only NATO standard rounds. The weapon was never used by the Libyan Army, which relied on Soviet weaponry. Claims by NATO that the rebels were using Libyan weapons captured from Libyan army arsenals and caches were patently false.

Snopes is now questioning Turkey's weapons links to jihadist terrorists in North Africa and Europe. However, photographs do not lie, as seen below. Ammunition and 5,000 shotguns from the Turkish-owned arms dealer Yavex USA were shipped from Istanbul in boxes denoted as plastic office furniture manufactured by the Turkish firm "S
enyayla Plastik Sanayi ve Ticaret A/S" of Istanbul. The Turkish government and the CIA had their "plausible deniability" cover story on the intercepted weapons and ammunition ready to go just after the Greek Coast Guard interception: The 492,000 handgun bullets were destined for the Sudanese national police and were to be delivered through the port of Beirut, Lebanon and the 4900 shotguns were "hunting rifles" destined for Lebanese customers. TheHaddad 1 was stopping at the Libyan ports of Misrata and Tobruk, according to the Turkish government, to deliver bags of "cement mix." At the time of the interception, Libya was subject to a United Nations arms embargo.

Yavex's U.S. subsidiary is located at 
6361 Corporate Park Circle in Fort Myers, Florida. It is clear that both Yavex USA, Turi Defense Group, and FN-USA, now called FN-America, were involved in a covert CIA weapons smuggling operation in violation of the UN arms embargoes imposed on Libya, and later, on Syria, with the connivance of Hillary Clinton. Not surprisingly, FN-America operates from a post office box in McLean, Virginia, not far from CIA headquarters in Langley.

What may have possessed Hillary Clinton to destroy thousands of State Department emails transmitted, processed, and stored on her personal servers? Perhaps it was her involvement in a major CIA weapons smuggling operation that saw U.S. and NATO weapons being shipped to jihadist terrorists in Libya, Syria, and Europe. As Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton had ultimate authority for approving U.S. weapons transfers abroad pursuant to the Arms Export Control Act.

As far as is concerned, nothing they report should be taken seriously. They are as reliable a news source as The Onion.

The "fact checkers" are correct: Huma Abedin is not associated with the Muslim Brotherhood; she's linked to Al Qaeda By Wayne Madsen Report

 The "fact checkers" are correct: Huma Abedin is not associated with the Muslim Brotherhood; she's linked to Al Qaeda By Wayne Madsen Report
Once again, the conservative media has gotten it wrong. After publishing story after story about Hillary Clinton's closest adviser, Huma Abedin, being linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, the "fact checkers" at The Washington Post, and other media outlets got it correct. Abedin has not been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. However, what the Post and others failed to investigate is Abedin and her family's links to an organization far worse than the Brotherhood, Al Qaeda.

When Barack Obama's birth certificate became an issue after he was inaugurated as president in 2009, the media also got it very wrong. Obama's birth in Honolulu in 1961 was never at issue. What was a fact was that his Indonesian stepfather renounced young Obama's American citizenship when he was enrolled in an Indonesian school in 1968. Indonesian law prohibits dual citizenship. Obama carried his Indonesian citizenship after he returned to Hawaii. There was never any document provided by Obama showing that he proactively declared his U.S. citizenship before he turned 21 years old. In fact, Obama was enrolled at Occidental College as a foreign student under a Fulbright Scholarship. All of this may have been a problem for many U.S.-Indonesian children, however, with Obama's mother and grandparents being associated with the Central Intelligence Agency, there was never an immigration or naturalization problem for young Barry Soetoro.

Nor does there seem to be a "problem" for Huma Abedin, born in 1976 to an Indian Muslim father, Syed Zainul Abedin, and a Pakistani Muslim mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, in Kalamazoo, Michigan. From the age of two to the age of eighteen, Abedin lived with her parents in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and was schooled, as any Muslim woman citizen and resident of Saudi Arabia, in the misogynistic tenets of Wahhabist Islam, the most fundamentalist and radical sect of Islam on the planet.

The U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) practices an intelligence-gathering technique known as "contact chaining." When NSA analysts are interested in a certain person of interest, they establish a "contact chain," which is graphically represented by names on a relational chart, sometimes interposed on a map. The contact chain is developed by a database code-named MAINWAY, which develops chaining data from a number of meta-databases created from collecting phone numbers associated with the person of interest. In addition to calls made to and from the person of interest, the phone calls to and from their associates and their associates' associates are added to the contact chain.

For example, if MAINWAY was queried on an individual's "Al-Qaida affiliates," the ASSOCIATION database would provide a list of all cell phone calls linked to the target, BANYAN would list all landline calls linked to the same target, and the MARINA database would provide e-mail, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), Skype, and other web-associated links. In addition, other NSA databases would provide global positioning system (GPS) data on the target and his or her associates gleaned from mobile phone companies and GPS companies like Tom Tom, Mio Technology, and NAVICO.

Example of NSA contact chaining for the email chains of two executives of the Chinese telecommunications firm Huawei.

Example of an NSA contact chaining diagram for phone calls only.
If Huma Abedin's name were entered into NSA's MAINWAY query option, there is no doubt that her contact chain would yield some interesting results. However, using information gleaned from bona fide news organizations and other research sites, WMR was able to develop a contact chaining chart for Abedin that yields some alarming results. For example, Abedin, a former assistant editor for her mother's Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, was only four degrees of separation from Wa'el Hamza Jalaidan, the founder of Al Qaeda.

Ms. Abedin was also four degrees of separation from Sayid Qtub, a professor at King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, a sister college of Abedin's mother's Dar al-Hekma College for women, also in Jeddah. Qtub was the inspirational teacher of Al Qaeda's Osama Bin Laden and Dr. Ayman al Zawahiri, both of whom attended King Abdulaziz University. The two colleges are steeped in Wahhabist doctrine and have been nest eggs for radical Salafist and Wahhabist terrorist movements around the world.

Those who have attempted to link Abedin with the Muslim Brotherhood could not be further from the truth. The Brotherhood believes that Islamist domination can be achieved through the democratic electoral process, as previously seen in Egypt before a military coup ousted the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government of Mohamed Morsi. In fact, the pro-Saudi Salafist party in Egypt supported the military coup in its ouster of the Brotherhood, longtime enemies of radical Wahhabism and Salafism.

Huma Abedin's "contact chaining" diagram. One produced by NSA would be even more detailed and alarming for someone who might end up inside Hillary Clinton's Oval Office as a fully-cleared, for all security levels and compartments, presidential adviser. Click on image for larger display.

By trying to link Abedin to the Muslim Brotherhood, an entire lifetime of her connections to Saudi Wahhabism, Salafism, and jihadism was overlooked, either by accident or by design.

Syed Qtub and Mohammed Qtub, his brother who succeeded him at King Abdulaziz University, opposed the Muslim Brotherhood's tactic of achieving power through the electoral process. The two brothers who provided inspiration for Al Qaeda believe that power must be achieved through jihad, or holy war, and violence through terrorism is a justifiable means to an end.

It is the Islamic Wahhabist and Salafist schools of thought, both baselines for Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, which grew out of Al Qaeda in Iraq, that are most closely associated with Huma Abedin, whose path also crossed at George Washington University with another Al Qaeda figure, Anwar al-Awlaki, the Denver-born Islamic cleric who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Although WMR's contact chain on Abedin was not extended beyond six or seven degrees of separation, Awlaki's network included many Al Qaeda- and Islamic State-inspired terrorists, including the Christmas Day 2009 "underwear bomber" Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the 2009 Little Rock armed forces recruiting office shooter Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad (Carlos Leon Bledsoe), the 2010 Times Square attempted bomber Faisal Shahzad, Fort Hood mass shooter Major Nidal Malik Hasan, British Labor Cabinet member Stephen Timms's stabber Roshonara Choudhry, 2013 Boston Marathon bombing brothers Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 2015 San Bernardino Indlan Regional Center mass shootersSyed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, and 2016 Orlando Pulse nightclub mass shooter Omar Mateen.

Although WMR did not extend Huma Abedin's contact chain beyond what could be represented on a single contact chain diagram, if NSA were to conduct a contact chain analysis on Ms. Abedin, it would include all of the aforementioned terrorists. And by extending Huma Abedin's contact chain of known terrorists by just one degree of separation, the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, would be included in the Al Qaeda/Islamic State contact chain, as well.

America has seen ill health denials (Hillary Clinton) in past presidential politics By Wayne Madsen Report

 America has seen ill health denials in past presidential politics
By Wayne Madsen Report
Hillary Clinton's press spokesman Nick Merrill responded in a Twitter message to an NBC News report about the Democratic presidential nominee's ill health by tweeting, "this ain’t news . . . Get a life." A spate of coughing fits by Clinton has resulted in a re-examination of the health issues that have been dogging her ever since a concussion resulting from a fall in December 2012. Although the press has been under steady fire from the Clinton campaign over Mrs. Clinton's repeated coughing seizures, as well as repeated bed rest, such attacks over presidential health issues are not new in American history.

In 1955, when President Dwight Eisenhower suffered a major heart attack, the president briefly considered not running for a second term in 1956. There was an attempt by the Eisenhower administration to keep the seriousness of the heart attack from the press. Neither Eisenhower nor his closest aides wanted to give Vice President Richard Nixon and his supporters reasons to demand Eisenhower step down for health reasons in favor of his scandal-plagued vice president.

First Lady Nancy Reagan and her closest aides fended off questions from the press about President Ronald Reagan's early stages of Alzheimer's disease during his second term. Mrs. Reagan, while not as hands-on in filling in for her husband as was Galt Wilson, was, nevertheless, involved in a number of important presidential decisions.

The most infamous White House attacks on the press over presidential health came during the second term of President Woodrow Wilson. First Lady Edith Galt Wilson claimed that her husband's disappearance from public view in 1919 was due to "nervous exhaustion" from his participation in the Paris Peace Conference in Versailles, outside of Paris. In fact, Wilson had suffered a second stroke -- his first was in 1914 -- that left him permanently paralyzed on his left side. Efforts by most of the press to get to the bottom of Wilson's health issues proved unsuccessful for all of 1919 and early into 1920.

The New York Times, always prepared to carry the White House's political baggage then and now, wrote that the fact that Wilson managed to speak to Republican Senator Albert Fall during a visit to the White House, a call designed to ascertain Wilson's health, "silenced for good the many wild and often unfriendly rumors of Presidential disability." The term "unfriendly rumors" was the "conspiracy theories" pejorative of the day. In fact, Wilson was unable to walk, speak, or write and he tired easily and his attention span was limited. Wilson suffered from frequent headaches and double vision. Wilson's handshake was described at the time as feeling like "a ten-cent pickled mackerel in brown paper."

The First Lady acted in the president's stead in an effort to prevent Vice President Thomas Marshall from assuming the presidency. Marshall was considered too close to Wilson's chief Republican adversary, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge. Conspiring with chief White House physician Dr. Cary T. Grayson, Mrs. Galt Wilson hid the president's massive stroke from not only the American public and the press but even from the president's chief aide, Joseph Tumulty.

She died at the age of 89 on the morning of December 28, 1961, as she was preparing to attend the formal opening ceremony for the cross-Potomac Woodrow Wilson bridge, spanning the river between Alexandria, Virginia and Washington, DC.

What does Wilson and Galt Wilson have to do with Hillary Clinton? Plenty.

If a President Hillary Clinton's health were to decline, it is a certainty that former President Bill Clinton would emulate Galt and act in his wife's stead as president. Senator Tim Kaine was chosen as Mrs. Clinton's running mate because he, as was Marshall, is a milquetoast politician, would not seek to become acting president of the United States in the event of the incapacitation of the president. Marshall was urged to demand to be sworn in as acting president by Secretary of State Robert Lansing and other Cabinet secretaries but the former governor of Indiana, known as a go-along, get-along humorist who is best remembered for his quip, "What this country needs is a really good five-cent cigar," refused.

For Bill Clinton, serving as the de facto president would be an effective third term as president, something barred by the U.S. Constitution.

Photographic evidence showing Okunola constantly at the side of Mrs. Clinton, even helping her to climb stairs and remain steady while speaking, indicate that the Democratic presidential nominee is partially-incapacitated.
