ISLAMABAD, May 6 : Al Qaeda confirmed Osama Bin Laden was dead on Friday, dispelling some of the fog around the killing of the holy warrior, and vowed to mount more attacks on the West.
The announcement by the Islamist network, which promised to publish a taped message from Bin Laden soon, appeared likely to silence doubts expressed by some that he had died at all.
In a statement online, it said Bin Ladens blood is more precious to us and to every Muslim than to be wasted in vain.
It will remain, with permission from Allah the Almighty, a curse that hunts the Americans and their collaborators and chases them inside and outside their country.
Al Qaeda urged Pakistanis to rise up against their government to cleanse the country of what it called the shame brought on it by Bin Ladens shooting and of the filth of the Americans who spread corruption in it.
Before the sheikh passed from this world and before he could share with the Islamic nation in its joys over its revolutions in the face of the oppressors, he recorded a voice recording of congratulations and advice which we will publish soon, God willing, the militant group said.
We warn the Americans not to harm the corpse of the sheikh or expose it to any indecent treatment or to harm any members of his family, living or dead, and to deliver the corpses to their families, it added. US officials say Bin Ladens body has been buried at.

How do they know, really? Did he stop responding to their emails? Maybe he’s just on a long vacation and hasn’t gotten around to them.
Al Qaeda confirmed Osama Bin Laden was dead
Supposedly theres no bod
Oh, that's right...America has had Jihad declared on it for several decades now.
The Seal team effort is a huge success. You know why? They are telling us.
The article does not mention any person's name. Read it.
It would appear that nobody is racing to be a leader of prominence.
but, but, but...we didn’t show the picture and we didn’t pi** on his corpse and bury it in a hog wallow. They shouldn’t want revenge now.
Have to maintain their boy, Barry’s credibility, don’t they?
It’s sickening that he’s kept the photos under lock and key.
This is just insane.
hussein obama is a liar, his friend osama bin laden died may years ago.

“Its sickening that hes kept the photos under lock and key.
This is just insane.”
This is not insane; it is perfectly reasonable. Of course, the photos will leak eventually. But in the meantime, what do you suppose would be accomplished, aside from satisfying morbid curiosity? When the Zapruder film came out of hiding all it did was feed Oliver Stone et. al.’s paranoia.
My reasonable to you, but the reason given was BS
If you're really worried about inflaming the middle east, then GET OUT of the middle east.
Based on these pictures, they're already inflamed.
Picture a stack of queerans, or whatever those “books” are, together with a mass of PAKISTANI FLAGS being BURNED. Let that go viral...
They are club nuclear, all they need is an ayatollah.
“If you’re really worried about inflaming the middle east, then GET OUT of the middle east.”
That’s a good point. Though there might be ground between immediate withdrawal of embroiled troops and rubbing people’s faces in a dead body.
“Based on these pictures, they’re already inflamed.”
I’m thinking the “Pakistani religious party Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam” may not be Obama’s target audience. People tend to forget muslim nations have their “silent majorities,” too, watching their Pakistani Idol, or whatever, and not paying attention until salacious things pop up.
Now, if only he could get Al Queda to confirm his birth certificate...
Because his "wife" - the one he was given on her 15th birthday - lived to tell the tale. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's why she wasn't killed.
While she may not be a physician, I'm guessing she understood the medical significance of a large, gaping hole in her husband's head.
I'd be as happy as anyone to (largely) withdraw from both Afghanistan and Iraq. BUT, we're kidding ourselves if we think the reason they're inflamed is because we're there. That shouldn't be the impetus for our departure.
They hate us because we're not Muzzies, and they hate us because we won't abandon Israel - probably in that order. Even if we withdraw, and Israel ceases to exist, they'll still hate us, and they'll still be inflamed because THAT's what their religion tells them to be.
Eventually being defined as right before the election...
I don’t want to sound to paranoid, but not releasing the pictures is causing psychological issues on a national scale.
Obama kills a dead terrorist and now he’s acting like John Wayne. How Gutsy of you Mr. Obumma.
A quran makes an excellent fire-starter
I get that.
I was using middle east withdraw to make a point about the admin not releasing the pictures.
....and here we thought they would all stay so mellow, just as long as we didn’t release any photos of Bin Laden’s corpse.
No proof but the Islamists KNOW brother Obama wouldn't lie to THEM!
promised to publish a taped message from Bin Laden soonfrom the castle of Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Come get some!
The headline should read: Al Qaeda pulls DimBO’s bacon out of the fire.
Following is an abridged version of the text of the statement issued by Al Qaeda on the death of Osama bin Laden. The translation from Arabic is by Reuters.
"Congratulations to the Islamic nation on the martyrdom of its good son Osama after a life full of effort and work, determination and patience, incitement and holy struggle, generosity and giving, emigration and travel, advice and good preparation, wisdom and experience...
"That the Americans were able to kill Osama is not shameful to us. Where else do men and heroes die except on the battlefield? Every end is predestined. But can the Americans with their media, agents, machinery, soldiers, intelligence and equipment kill what Sheikh Osama lived and fought for? Never, never. Sheikh Osama did not build an organization that will die with his death and leave with his departure..."
"The nation that gave birth to Osama is a fertile nation. Many more men and heroes like him will come, who will enjoy sacrifice and find patience sweet, who will make the life of their enemies bitter and open to them the doors of hell or lead them to heaven in shackles...
"We assert that the blood of the mujahid Sheikh Osama bin Laden,

Except Osama died hiding out on the third floor of a ratty block building, surrounded by women and an 18 foot wall where he was growing his own weed. So much for being a "hero".
The bin Laden photos will never see the light of day......Barry gave them to Bradley Manning for safe keeping.
Outstanding. That explains why he had others do his martyring for him; he had no use for those 72 virgins.
Why are they so inflamed? Allah apparently decided not to give him divine protection any more. Either that or there is no Allah to protect as Bin Laden claimed.
I hear the latest signature drink in bars across America is the bin Laden: Two shots and a splash of saltwater.
