3. The $25-Million Answer: How Nostradamus Told Where to Look
This title remains available, but a second edition has re-issued it under the title:
The $50-Million Reelection Gift: How Nostradamus Really Told Where to Look
This is the modified cover
The story remains the same, but updates have been added to the second edition.
This book deals with the character that shaped the stage of world terrorism as it is known today – Osama bin Laden. I began writing this book in January 2011, when bin Laden had been a fugitive on the F.B.I.’s Ten Most Wanted list for nearly a decade (9 years, 4 months). From the onset of my ability to understand the quatrains of Les Propheties, which was soon after the events that occurred on September 11, 2001, I saw that someone like bin Laden was written into several poems, even knowing (based on the information surrounding that character) where a concerted search should take place.
Soon after the reward of twenty-five million dollars was offered for the arrest and capture of bin Laden, I called the local F.B.I. office and talked to a field agent, requesting a meeting at some coffee shop, so I could produce the quatrains that indicated someone very much like bin Laden and expose where those quatrains indicated where his leadership found refuge. I was not willing to disclose full information over the phone, and the agent suggested I call back “after he had told his superior and got approval for such a meeting.” When I got back in touch he flatly said he would not meet without more information, at which point I told him it was a “prediction” of Nostradamus. I explained I could act as a “paid advisor,” teaching them how to decipher what he wrote. If captured, I would not expect any reward money. I was told by the agent at that point, “The F.B.I. does not pay for advisers.”
The motivation to call the F.B.I. was more to offer my assistance, as a citizen; but at the same time I was hesitant about helping the U.S. government, as I have serious doubts about the trustworthiness it has earned. Nostradamus wrote about terrible times ahead, based on the corruption of the leaders of world powers (the U.S. being only one of those corrupted). Therefore, once I was rejected by that field agent, I was relieved to have been told “No.” I was exonerated of all guilt for not doing my "patriotic duty."
In my book The Letters of Nostradamus, the character that fits Osama bin Laden was not specifically named, so I could not speak in the voice of Nostradamus and say, “Osama bin Laden.” That character could only be identified generally, based on the words Nostradamus wrote; and no character of the future was ever specifically named [not even Adolph Hitler] by Nostradamus. While it was his naming of mythological and historical figures, whose characteristics could be projected on the characters of the future, no one of the future was referenced by specific name. Thus, all evidence that can be attributed to Osama bin Laden is solely based on general characteristics.
As the year 2010 came to a close, I felt it was time to identify that character [which many published authors of The Prophecies had also seen] in a series of quatrains that contained the word “mountain” (singular, plural, and various spelling in French). Osama bin Laden is strongly associated with being a “mountain man.” In two of those quatrains, the same specific “mountains” were named, which was where I felt Osama bin Laden could be hiding out. Those mountains were far from the Middle East, thus no one would think to look there. Thus, I began work writing and editing this book, which I published in March 2011.
After nine years and seven months, on May 1, 2011 (May 2 in Pakistan), the news came out that Osama bin Laden had been killed. My book had not even been out two months, so no one had purchased it. No one was wanting to get the $25 million reward, which was very quickly taken down by the F.B.I. No one ever read [well, nobody except maybe a friend or two who bought copies of the book from me] where I said Nostradamus told he would be hiding, which was not in Pakistan.
When I said that Nostradamus wrote about the corruption of world leaders as why I did not feel the F.B.I. was 100% trustworthy, let me just say that Barry Scheck (of O.J. Simpson DNA mumbo-jumbo fame … that led to jurors questioning hard evidence of a murderer) would have a field day cross-examining the Navy SEAL Team Six's wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am DNA testing that they reported proved the body they threw into the Arabian Sea was Osama bin Laden's. We have to take the government's word as truth … which helped Barack Obama win re-election.
Anyone ever hear how Lee Harvey Oswald told reporters, “I’m a patsy,” not long before someone shot him on live television? He was, in effect, denying he was the gunman, much less the “lone gunman” in the JFK assassination. Soon afterwards, Oswald was walked to his assassin, when the "patsy" was gunned down on live television, so Oswald could speak no more. Did the American public buy that force-fed conclusion? Hardly. Few believe the conclusions our tax paid dollars have paid for government investigations.
There is a show on The History Channel (“Hunting Hitler”) that has presented reason to believe that Adolph Hitler did not commit suicide in the Berlin bunker in 1945, like all the history books say. Instead, evidence shows he escaped capture and went to Argentina, where many other high ranking Nazis went also. My point is we Americans cannot always believe what we are told to believe. It is that lack of trustworthiness our government has earned, from decades of lies having been exposed.
Let me just add that I have no problem with this book being read and analyzed. Even Sasha Cohen [Borat] joked about Osama bin Laden still being alive [in The Dictator, 2012], with only a body double having been murdered. Keep in mind how Barack Obama won reelection in 2012, largely because he claimed he was the hero that killed America’s worst enemy. It forces one to ask the question: Why couldn’t America’s ace intelligence personnel capture bin Laden years earlier?
If all that was a lie, then Osama bin Laden is still out there … hiding in plain view … with no one looking for him. Knowing that is a real possibility, I suggest reading the news, especially that about the recent move by Catalonia's efforts to secede from Spain and become an autonomous nation. Prior to that there have been increased terrorist acts in France, especially in Southern France (the region Nostradamus lived). While all of that seems disjointed and not linking together, my book makes all of that tie in with the character that is still in hiding, whose character is like Osama bin Laden’s.
As I edited the first book, I was amazed to see that I had published an interpretation in The $25-Million Answer that was a quatrain telling of a great deception planned, as far as making it appear that Osama bin Laden had been killed. When I wrote the first edition (not knowing of the Obama-led actions that would come, saying Osama bin Laden had been killed) attributing that deception to the al Qaeda efforts to quickly bury the dead at Tora Tora, causing the C.I.A. to exhume bodies and check DNA for bin Laden's. After the facts of the 2011 U.S. Navy SEAL mission came out, that quatrain clearly can be attributed to that act of deception.
