During a conference, one of the leading terrorism reporters in America, Rukmini Callimachi exposed how Obama manipulated the media in order to hide information about Al Qaeda. She described how after Osama Bin Laden was killed, Al Qaeda was still thriving. However, they stopped reporting on Al Qaeda to make it seem like Obama had destroyed Al Qaeda right before the 2012 election.
“The overall narrative that I think was being pushed to the press, and if you look back at the editorials that were done when that trove came out, was an image of bin Laden isolated, he had lost control of this group,” she explained.
“Think back to when bin Laden was killed. It was 2011, it was right before a major campaign season. I don’t want to underplay the role that the killing of Osama bin Laden had. But I think that that was theorized into something much bigger,” she explained.
