Skip to comments.CIA Looks for New Clues on Al Qaeda Trail, Reviews Evidence From Bin Laden Compound
Posted on 05/02/2011 2:08:01 PM PDT by PSYCHO-FREEP
Vehicles are parked inside the compound of a house where it is believed Usama bin Laden lived in Abbottabad, Pakistan, May 2. Usama bin Laden's body sank to the bottom of the Arabian Sea Monday morning after he was buried in accordance with Islamic practice.
But while his death marked the end of one counterterror mission -- a big one -- it could unlock new clues as intelligence analysts start to review the materials captured at bin Laden's Pakistan compound during the raid.
Along with bin Laden's body, electronics and hard drives were seized by U.S. forces following the firefight Sunday afternoon.
They have started to arrive at the CIA's Virginia headquarters, officials said. They described the cache as a "volume of materials" that will be "exploited and analyzed" at CIA headquarters.
It's unclear what kinds of information the files might contain. Intelligence officials spent years tracking the threads of information that eventually led them to the courier that led them to bin Laden's compound. But officials have said the successful mission Sunday is only one step in the ongoing fight against Al Qaeda and its affiliates.

why is the MSM calling this property a “$1 million resort compound?”
Before or after the firefight, the place is a dump.
This is all you get in Pakistan for $1 million? Worse than SF.
“Prevailing wage” labor union laws in Pakistan?
The exact location of that home should never have been released.
Once we have the needed intel from it remove the structures.
Not even an olive tree....
more like 50 goat compound.
For the uninitiated, Abbottabad is just 2 KM from Costellobad.
Was Osama too close to Obama?
” Clues At Hideout Will Help Bury Al Qaeda “
There’s a reason that Intelligence is so highly classified - and, no, it’s not because “Top Secret” makes for really juicy NYT headlines....
There are as many forms of his name and spelling as Gadaffy.
Don’t ask me why......
Hanukkah or Chanukah?
Either our intelligence service pretends that they have gleaned valuable information which they didn’t to scare the villians into flight, or we really did recover valuable information and we just tipped off the villians into flight.
But then, they will know they are being hunted like dogs by some very deadly hunters......
Please don’t change titles.
Did Senior Military/Intelligence Officials Overrule President Obama Regarding Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden?
by Ulsterman in Issues, May 2, 2011
A reluctant American president who was ultimately overridden by senior military and intelligence officials to finally take out terrorist Osama Bin Laden.
Note: This communication came from our long time D.C. Insider and details the past, present, and ongoing conflicts surrounding the decision to assassinate terrorist Osama Bin Laden. This has been reproduced here as originally communicated to us.
Please get this out ASAP. Want specific people to know we know.
RE Osama Bin Laden. Significant push to take him out months ago. Senior WH staff resisted. This was cause of much strain between HC and Obama/Jarrett. HC and LP were in constant communication over matter both attempted to convince administration to act. Administration feared failure and resulting negative impact on president. Intel disgusted over politics over national security. Staff resigned/left. Check timeline to corroborate.
Now Intel already leaking to media facts surrounding how info obtained. Namely from enhanced interrogation efforts via GITMO prisoners. Obama administration placed in corner on this. Some media aware of danger to president RE this and attempting protection. Others looking for further investigation. We are pushing for them to follow through and already meeting with some access.
Point of determination made FOR Obama not BY Obama. Will clarify as details become more clear. Very clear divide between Military and WH. Jarrett marginalized 100% on decision to take out OBL. She played no part. BD worked with LP and HC to form coalition to force CoC to engage.
IMPORTANT SPECIFIC: When 48 hour go order issued, CoC was told, not requested. Administration scrambled to abort. That order was overruled. This order did not originate from CoC. Repeat this order did not originate from CoC. He complied, but did not originate.
Independent military contacts have confirmed. Stories corroborate one another. This is legit.
The killing of Osama Bin Laden was in fact a Coup within Obama WH.
Speaking with additional contacts RE info.
HC = Hillary Clinton
BD = Bill Daley
LP = Leon Panetta
CoC = Chain of Command/Commander in Chief
They can run, but they can’t hide.
2 km in what direction?
"How the US tracked couriers to elaborate bin Laden compound"
It looks like a dirty meth infested flea bag motel with mismatched bed linens and a missing top mattress. Not exactly what I consider a million dollar ‘elaborate’ compound.
This might sound like a crazy question but, at this point in time, do we really want to bury Al Qaeda? After all, it appears that with the growing revolutions in the Middle East/North Africa, Iran and Ahmed Ahadinejhad is the bigger threat in the region. Iran represents a Shia Muslim sect and Al Qaeda represents a Sunni Muslim sect. We might want to keep Al Qaeda intact until these revolutions are over with. I'd hate for us to wake up one day and find an Iranian led Shia Muslim Caliphate in the Middle East/North Africa and no indigenous Middle East force to resist that.
Wat's in Cambodia.
“This is all you get in Pakistan for $1 million? Worse than SF.”
Maybe they had bad credit and that was all they could afford?
“Bin Laden was found at luxury Pakistan compound”
“with his youngest wife in a million-dollar compound in a summer resort”
“Bin Laden’s luxury hideout raises questions”
An insult to Geronimo, who was a REAL warrior and did not hide behind his womenfolk.
If true, this is not a good thing (even if the result was good). Although, in a Democrat administration, what can one expect.
Hint: Al Qaeda is behind those revolutions.
I noticed that today on several channels. I think you’re right. Too easy to confuse “Obama” and “Osama”.
Hmmm, we know under UBL, that Al-Qaeda and Iran were not friends....now with him out of the way, could the two join forces?
Sheila Jackson Lee: Cambodia??? I thought this occurred in Pakistan? It must be near the border.
I’m sure that obl body was dropped into the sea with a black box attached in order to bring him back for future obama photo ops.
Hint: Al Qaeda is behind those revolutions.
I reading more that the Iranian influence in those revolutions is greater than Al Qaeda.
Fox has been calling him Usama since before 9/11. Don’t know why; maybe they just wanted to be different.
Usama bin Ladin is an alternate and correct spelling. Bin Ladin is on the construction company business documents.
Anyone who is anybody wants to live there...
They were not necessarily friends and they were not necessarily enemies. But they were/are Muslims, and Iran has been harboring a number of Bin Laden's operatives for years now.
This truly is a great moment, and a very patiently engineered military and propaganda victory for the USA as a nation. It is a vindication of its people, its military assets, its intelligence community, and even its leaders, past and present.
America's might, when its people are united in righteous determination, is an imposing, formidable, perilous thing. It is not to be trifled with or misunderestimated, even with mediocre leadership.
The worst American President on America's worst day is still infinitely preferable to these Euro-Marxists and Petty Tyrants who rule the rest of the world!
God Bless America: still the envy of the world! Live it, learn it, love it.
What’s on second.
Thanks, Johniegrad. Best laugh I’ve had all day.
His legs must have hung off that bed. It doesn’t look long enough for a six foot terrorist dude.
WHOA! If THAT is all true...the S is going to HTF pronto!
I share your concern regarding the possibility of an override of the CoC, or more specifically in this case, the CiC.
But there is no way in Hell, that after almost ten years of hunting that SOB, and after all the lives lost, those we know about and those we don’t, that they were going to let OBL slip through their fingers because we have a pantywaist Muslim loving CiC.
Sorry... Your transmission is garbled... Say again...
But Zero goong to take full credit for the kill, regardless of the tactics employed, and the people who put the wheels in motion; which at the time WAS a legitiment CiC.
So in that regard, they were carrying out orders.
You have to admit when you’re used to sleeping with livestock, the place is a step up. I hope no four legged animals were harmed in that raid. Perhaps PETA should investigate the cruelty of feeding Osama to sharks. The poor sharks were victimized.
Usama bin Laden's body sank to the bottom of the Arabian Sea Monday morning after he was buried in accordance with Islamic practice... Along with bin Laden's body, electronics and hard drives were seized by U.S. forces following the firefight Sunday afternoon.The carcass should have been ground up and used as pig food. So should the carcass of the son who was killed at the scene, and the bodies of the other combatants.
