Skip to comments.Charlie Chan and the Mystery of the Mansion Hideout
Posted on 05/07/2011 5:58:11 AM PDT by Not gonna take it anymore
As the story of the death of Osama bin Laden grows more curious by the day, it's time we call in that legendary Honolulu police detective of yesteryear, Charlie Chan, to visit the scene.
With his Number One Son, Jimmy, Chan arrives at the former hideout of the deceased mass murderer, where a small crowd of on-lookers still lingers. This conversation ensues:
Jimmy: Gee, Pop, this doesn't look like a mansion. It looks more like a three-story police headquarters in a provincial capital in Guatemala.
Chan: True, but look around, Jimmy. Few houses are nearby, and none is bigger. Nor is there another house surrounded by a tall wall topped with barbed wire. But you are right, Number One Son. It does look like a jail, but given its secluded location and size, to some here it might appear to be the home of a rich man.
Jimmy: If bin Laden was hiding here from the Pakistani authorities, as well as from the Americans, isn't this a high profile place to hide?
Chan: Yes, Jimmy. And within your question lives another: Was he hiding from the Pakistani authorities?

American Thinker needs to get their thinking caps on. Jimmy Chan was Number Two son. Lee was Number One. :) Ten points to whoever can tell me where Sidney Toler (the second man to portray Chan) was born and where he is buried. No fair using Google.
Sidney Toler was born in Warensburg, Missouri. Did I win? Did I win?
Jimmy may be Number one son... But Obama will always be Number 2 to me....
Outside of a high end community here in the U.S. where the place would be sold as a tear down and rebuild, the place would likely not fetch more than a couple hundred thousand. The place is an absolute DUMP. and is already falling apart. I have to believe that there are few if any Real Nice areas of Pakistan. I can't believe that this place could cost that much money anywhere in Pakistan>
The guy wasn't living in a cave, but the house was Ugly, poorly furnished and was located in The armpit of the World. I could be wrong, I have never been to Pakistan, perhaps Barak Obama can explain it to me. After all he has spent considerable time in Pakistan as a young adult.
At the end of Capote’s “Murder By Death”, his Charlie Chan, “Sidney Wang”, when asked if there had been a murder or not, replies “Yes; killed good weekend!” ...
Must correct failing mind: Neil Simon’s “Murder By Death”. Capote just played in it...
Also, wouldn’t you expect OBL to have a number of bodyguards in the compound and for them to be armed? Seems as if everybody was extremely relaxed. IOW, they felt safe. Most likely because the Pakistani military was supposed to be protecting him. That is why he was surprised and confused when US Navy SEALs rushed in. I have no doubt that Pakistan sold OBL out, that we have known his location for atleast several months, and that Obama’s motivation for taking him out was personal gain. Who knows what he gave Pakistan in return. Obama is a liar and a fraud.
Front seldom tell truth. To know occupants of house, always look in backyard.

OOPS!! Here’s another shot at the link:
Lee is number one son. I have the charlie chan dvd’s with warner oland. Key luke was lee.
Conversation like television set on honeymoon...unnecessary.
I fondly remember the Charlie Chan movies.
Did you get them on Amazon.com? I bought the Perry Mason series there.
Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner!! Now for the bonus round; where is he buried?
Charlie Chan was based on a real Chinese detective in Hawaii. Sadly, his exploits are not well known. The franchise should be re-started using Chinese actors and set in Hawaii. Cut the corny sayings and any hint of racism and it could be a hit today.
barnes and nobles had them at the store.
