BREAKING … Osama Bin Laden DEAD !!! *Update #6* with Video – Pakistani TV Picture – Geographic Maps

The President has spoken and announced the death of Usama Bin Laden.  It is now confirmed  Usama Bin Laden is DEAD.   He was killed by a US operation deep inside Pakistan, near Islamabad on Sunday. (video of the assault on compound click here)

UPDATE 4ISLAMABAD, May 2, 2011 (AFP) -Pakistani television stations on Monday broadcast what they described as unconfirmed images of Osama bin Laden’s bloodied face after the United States said he had been killed.  “The picture of Osama bin Laden’s dead body has been released. It is unverified,”   said the commentator on Pakistan’s largest TV network, Geo.  Other  channels also showed the image of a face, which sported a bushy and black beard  without any visible traces of the white or grey detected in the most recent video footage of bin Laden when he was alive.  There  were extensive blood stains on the forehead and left temple. The right eye was shut but the whites of the left eye were visible.  The hair was mangled and the mouth was slightly open with teeth showing.

Television also broadcast footage of flames rising from a compound in Abbottabad overnight and footage after daybreak of armed Pakistani forces standing guard at the
building where bin Laden was reportedly killed.  The compound is in Bilal, in the suburbs of Abbottabad, which is about 50 kilometres (30 miles) northwest of the Pakistani capital Islamabad.  One local resident told AFP that he heard helicopters circling overhead before heavy gunfire erupted between midnight Sunday (1900 GMT) and 1:00 am on Monday.  “People were sleeping. I heard helicopters roaring in the sky,” the man told AFP on
condition of anonymity because he was worried about security.

“I woke up and then heavy firing started. It was severe. It continued for quite some time,  when I heard a heavy explosion. It was huge. People woke up and came out of their houses. We didn’t know what is going on.”  “We heard ambulance sirens and security people  shouting.  We saw flames coming out of one place. Everybody is scared. I am afraid.”

“Today I heard from the TV about Osama’s death. I haven’t sent my children to school.
Police and other security people have cordoned off the whole area and we are not
allowed to go out,” the local resident added.

Update #1 Last week, the Taliban managed to reach an area located approximately 100 kilometers from the capital Islamabad before being repelled. Zardari ruled out the possibility of nuclear weapons falling into the hands of the Taliban but the conversation got real serious over there. “The nuclear capability of Pakistan is in safe hands,” he said.   The Pakistani government said the Taliban had completely withdrawn from the district, but reports quoting local eyewitnesses said Taliban fighters were still present on the ground.  This geographic proximity represented a more significant threat to Pakistan than previously existed.  I believe it was during that al Queda / Taliban push toward Islamabad the Pakistani’s finally said “ENOUGH”, and decided to give up the location of the bastard to the United States.

Essentially Usama Bin Laden was the cause of his own demise.  His Taliban’s success in almost reaching Islamabad was ultimately his undoing.   At some level, high governmental and military officials in Pakistan had to posess information about his whereabouts.  It was the Taliban getting this close to Islamabad that made them rethink their illicit “turn the cheek” position and divulge where he was hiding.    Once covert operations could figure out exactly where he was, and intelligence confirmed, they moved on Sunday to attack the home and compound where he was hiding.   President Obama stated a gunfight took place which ultimately led to UBL being shot dead.  The Covert Ops team recovered his body and took it with them when they bugged out.    (More information will follow)

UPDATE #2 - US president Barack Obama said bin Laden, the most-wanted fugitive on the US list, has been killed on Sunday in a US operation in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad, about 150km north of Islamabad. “Tonight, I can report to the people of the United States and the world, the United States had carried an operation that has killed Osama Bin Laden, a terrorist responsible for killing thousands of innocent people,” Obama said in a statement.

“Today, at my direction, the United States carried out that operation… they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body. “The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date against al-Qaeda. “We must also reaffirm that United states is not and will never be at war against Islam. Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader, in fact, he slaughtered many Muslims,” Obama said.

Barack Obama called bin Laden’s death the ‘most significant achievement’ against al-Qaeda [EPA]   As the news of bin Laden’s death spread, crowds gathered outside the White House in Washington DC to celebrate. Former US president George Bush called his death a “momentous achievement”.

“The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done,” Bush said in a statement

According to Al Jazeeera’s Rosalind Jordan in Washington, the operation had been in the making for the last nine or 10 months. “The fact that it happened inside Pakistan, there have been suggestions that Pakistani intelligence may have been protecting them,” she said. Patty Culhane, another Al Jazeera correspondent, said the US authorities got intelligence last September and were able to track bin Laden down through his couriers. They followed them to his compound which is reported to be worth over a million dollars.

Reporting from Pakistan, Al Jazeera’s Kamal Hyder said the development had caught a lot of people by surprise . “He was considered by many as a hero, but not to the extent that people would come out on the streets. The reaction so far not likely to be strong on the streets, perhaps a protest here or there by the religious parties,” he said.

‘Symbolic victory’ – Qais Azimy, Al Jazeera’s correspondent in Kabul, said Afghan officials described bin Laden’s killing as a “symbolic victory”, since he was no longer directly connected to the group’s field operations.   “This organisation (Al Qaeda) is more than Bin Laden, it may be symbolised by Bin Laden, but it definitely is more than Bin Laden”.

Mark Kimmit, a US military analyst, said bin Laden’s death “was not the end of terrorism, but an end of a chapter.” “Capturing or killing bin Laden has more iconic value. It will have symbolic value, because it has been a number of years since bin Laden has exercised day to day control over operations. We still have an al-Qaeda threat out there and that will be there for a number of years.

“This organisation (al-Qaeda) is more than bin Laden, it may be symbolised by bin Laden, but it definitely is more than bin Laden,” he said. It is, however, a major accomplishment for Obama and his national security team. Obama’s predecessor, George Bush, had repeatedly vowed to bring to justice the mastermind of the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, but never did before leaving office in early 2009.

He had been the subject of a search since he eluded US soldiers and Afghan militia forces in a large-scale assault on the Tora Bora mountains in 2001. The trail quickly went cold after he disappeared and many intelligence officials believed he had been hiding in Pakistan. While in hiding, bin Laden had taunted the West and advocated his views in videotapes spirited from his hideaway. Besides September 11, Washington has also linked bin Laden to a string of attacks – including the 1998 bombings of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania and the 2000 bombing of the warship USS Cole in Yemen.

Having the body may help convince any doubters that bin Laden is really dead.

Pakistani Television stations today carried images of Osama bin Laden’s bloodied face after the US announced that the world’s most wanted terrorist had been killed. “The picture of bin Laden’s body has been released. It is unverified,” Pakistan’s largest TV network Geo TV announced. Other channels also showed the images of the face of the world’s most wanted man, sporting a bushy and black beard without much traces of white or grey detected in his most recent video footage released to the media. The picture showed extensive blood stain on his forehead and left temple. The right eye appeared shut, but the whites of the eyes were visible.   The hair appeared mangled and mouth was shown slightly open with teeth showing.

    Here’s the thing. Everyone says this is not a war on “ISLAM”! Well that is the problem right there. No one can get the “gray” out of there eyes anymore because we have been fooled and subjected by the “EVIL” that makes us blind. We don’t know right from wrong if it is looking at us in the face. A spade is a spade and I for one know the difference. Judge by the actions or “FRUITS” of what ever needs to be wisely judged. What fruit has the Faith of ISLAM done for the world or it’s people. How about the women??? When Christianity was brought into the world, along with it came works of mercy, love thy enemy, pray for those who harm us and don’t return evil for evil. Don’t kid yourselves, we have the right to protect and defend, but what Christ taught has been slowly but surely being trashed. Don’t get me wrong the Churches have screwed us big time and that has nothing to do with what God taught us. Our “LEADERS” have been lousy and have allowed us to be led astray from what Christ taught us. The history of Islam has showed its face for a couple of thousand years and if it had not been pressured by the westerned civilizations would not have hospitols, orphaniges or anything else for the people. Oh yeah they are still alowed to take a wife and have her stoned to death because of so called affairs while Christ calls us to forgive. What is wrong with the world that can not see that huh????

    Here’s the bottom line fellow Americans! The real question to ask ourselves is if we are truely a Christian Country still? We have been slowly led astray from our morals and high standards and we are blinded by the “GRAY” and don’t know evil when we see it looking at us in the face because of our personal weaknesses. Black and white good and evil. Can you tell the difference. Well one lesson we should always look at and that is what the “fruits” are from any given action. The fruit of this great country that was born on the backs of GOOD men with a strong Judeo/Christian backbone is our right to chose and freedom. Christ teaches us to forgive our trespassers and to love and pray for those who harm us. Islam…. well I know they still stone their women for there so called affairs and have no room or belief in tolorating other beliefs. Remember to love the sinner and not the sin. Now don’t misunderstand me here. I am talking about what Christ taught us and not the actions of some of our horrific leaders who have failed to lead us in what Christ taught us. I can see white and black good and bad and still I am a sinner who has his own problems. But where are the fruits of Islam and what he taught??? Can anyone see what is going on and how gray our eyes have become?

There is certainly criticism that bin Laden received no trial and that the USA invaded a foreign destination. I do think the U.S. had every right to perform this procedure. Who, if not the U.S.?

    US expects to grill bin Laden women ‘soon’

    10/05/11 17:03 GMT

    Share:

    The United States said it expects Pakistan will “soon” allow it to question three women apprehended during the commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden, despite Islamabad’s fury over the operation.

    The apparent concession came as further details emerged about the dramatic May 2 assault in which the Al-Qaeda kingpin was shot dead by US forces not far from Islamabad, eliminating the architect of the September 11, 2001 attacks.

    Bin Laden’s Yemeni wife, who was shot in the leg during the raid, has told Pakistani investigators that they had lived in the compound in the garrison town of Abbottabad for five years.

    With the pivotal US-Pakistan relationship under severe strain, the White House had called on Islamabad to help counter growing mistrust by granting American investigators access to the three women.

    “The United States expects to be granted access soon,” the US official said, without providing more details. Senior Pakistani officials were either unreachable Tuesday or refused to comment on the claim.

    The three women, who are believed to be wives of bin Laden, have been in Pakistani custody since the assault along with several children.

    The New York Times meanwhile reported that the elite US Navy SEALs who gunned down bin Laden had permission to kill Pakistani forces if necessary.

    The newspaper said President Barack Obama raised the prospect of a clash 10 days before the operation, resulting in two extra helicopters being deployed to protect the assault team.

    Citing a senior Obama administration official, it said the SEALs would have been allowed to fight back if engaged by hostile local police officers or soldiers.

    “Their instructions were to avoid any confrontation if at all possible. But if they had to return fire to get out, they were authorized to do it,” the official said.

    On Monday, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani dismissed as “absurd” accusations that complicity or incompetence had allowed bin Laden to hide out for years in the sizeable compound two hours’ drive from Islamabad.

    He vowed a full investigation into the security and intelligence lapses — to be overseen by a Pakistani general — but also hit out at Washington’s decision to strike on its own deep inside Pakistan.

    Pakistan is a key ally in the US-led war on terrorism centered in neighboring Afghanistan. But tense relations have been stretched even further by the discovery of bin Laden living less than a mile from a military academy.

    Britain’s Guardian newspaper reported Tuesday that Pakistan granted US forces permission almost a decade ago to conduct a unilateral raid if Washington knew where bin Laden was hiding.

    Under the deal between then military leader General Pervez Musharraf and president George W. Bush both sides agreed that in public at least, Pakistan would vociferously protest the incursion after it happened.

    A spokesman for Musharraf’s political party — which he runs from self-exile in London — denied the claims.

    “It is a ridiculous claim. This is all nonsense,” said Mohammad Ali Saif, secretary general of Musharraf’s All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) party.

    “Mr Pervez Musharraf has already clearly stated that he did not have any understanding or agreement on this issue.

    “Musharraf has always said if there was any understanding, it was that our own forces will take action or carry out operations on Pakistani soil and that no foreign forces will be allowed to take action inside Pakistan,” he said.

    Washington emphatically refused Monday to say sorry for the raid which killed the world’s most wanted man, blamed for masterminding the 9/11 attacks on the United States in which almost 3,000 people were killed.

    “We obviously take the statements and concerns of the Pakistani government seriously, but we also do not apologise for the action that we took, that this president took,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said.

    There is considerable US suspicion that there must have been some kind of collusion to enable the Al-Qaeda leader to live undetected in Abbottabad.

    But Gilani told parliament he had “full confidence in the high command of the Pakistan Armed Forces and the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).”

    Obama on Sunday said bin Laden must have had some kind of “support network.”

    And the chairwoman of the US Senate intelligence committee, Dianne Feinstein, charged Monday that bin Laden must have had help to evade capture and live in Pakistan.

    “I just don’t believe it was done without some form of complicity,” she said.

    Outraged US lawmakers are demanding that billions of dollars in US aid be suspended.

    The highly influential military establishment is perceived to be Pakistan’s strongest institution but the debacle has left it red-faced.

    It has hit back at criticism, demanding that the United States cut its troop presence in the country to a “minimum” and threatening to review cooperation if another unilateral raid is conducted.

    Gilani also insisted Pakistan reserves the right to “retaliate with full force,” although he stopped short of spelling what, if anything, would be done if the US staged another high-profile anti-terror raid.

    A US official, speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity, said the CIA had no plans to withdraw its top spy from Islamabad after his identity was allegedly divulged in a Pakistani newspaper.
