In classic Immortal Technique style, the underground hip-hop artist's latest essay contextualizes the death of Osama Bin Laden and the "War on Terror" within the waves of frenzy that have been created since 9/11. The essay meticulously lists many of the inconsistencies that the fourth estate has fed to the public over the last nine and a half years.

While many Americans jump for joy as the bell tolls for Osama (as if the wicked witch were dead), Technique pulls the curtain of the public spectacle back to reveal a system of corruption and governmental negligence that refuses to be washed away. 

Ding dong, Bin Laden's "dead"…now what?

Immortal Technique's article is the first in a series, (I hope), of well-needed critiques about the current events transpiring before our eyes.
