    Special operations sources have claimed that the terror leader was shot more than one hundred times in the fatal 2011 raid. A new report from a website known within the intelligence and armed services community claims that the sheer number of times that Osama bin Laden was shot is the reason why the government has never released photos of his dead body. Citing two confidential sources, The Special Operations Forces Situation Report tells how 'operator after operator took turns dumping magazines-worth of ammunition into Bin Laden’s body'. The site goes on to argue that while the Navy SEALs may have...

    A top White House official who has been with President Barack Obama since he first became a senator nine years ago is resigning. Alyssa Mastromonaco is Obama’s deputy chief of staff for operations and often described as the most influential person inside the White House who isn't well known outside of it. …

    Not only did former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta leak the name of the Navy SEAL group responsible for the killing of Osama Bin Laden in 2011, but the release of the Pentagon Inspector General’s (IG) report revealing the incident, which was ready in July 2012, was delayed until now. In the spring of 2012, GOP members accused Barack Obama’s administration of leaking national security secrets to help Obama get reelected, but the administration denied it. At a CIA awards ceremony on June 24, 2011, Panetta named the SEAL group and its commander. Among those present were 1300 military and...

    Osama Bin Laden 'blew himself up with suicide belt after Navy SEAL shot him in the thigh' claims terror leader's former bodyguard Osama Bin Laden was not 'shot dead by Navy SEALs but instead blew himself up with a suicide belt', it has been claimed. The terror leader's former bodyguard, Nabeel Naeem Abdul Fattah, has claimed that the al-Qaida chief triggered his explosive belt when US soldiers broke into his compound, killed two of his guards, and shot him in the thigh.

    A federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that the U.S. government had properly classified top secret more than 50 images of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden taken after his death, and that the government did not need to release them. The unanimous ruling by three judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected a request for the images by a conservative nonprofit watchdog group. Judicial Watch sued for photographs and video from the May 2011 raid in which U.S. special forces killed bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan, after more than a decade of...

    On Wednesday, counterterrorism expert and retired Marine Lt. Col. Bill Cowan told Breitbart News that the Obama administration’s failure to work for the release of Pakistani doctor Shakil Afridi, who helped the US find Osama Bin Laden, was “disgraceful.” He also labeled it a massive intelligence risk for future operations. “From a pure intelligence perspective,” said Cowan, “anybody who is providing clandestine intelligence support to us, any assets who are agents, have to be nervous when they see how we threw Dr. Afridi under the bus for political purposes. We would look as though we were mean and tough in...
  • Who really killed bin Laden?

    03/27/2013 6:19:01 AM PDT · by Perdogg · 44 replies
    In February, Esquire magazine published a lengthy profile of "The Man Who Killed Osama bin Laden." The story did not identify the killer by his real name, referring to him only as "the Shooter." The Shooter told Esquire that the night bin Laden was killed he had encountered al Qaeda's leader face-to-face in the top-floor bedroom of the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where bin Laden had been hiding for more than five years. The Shooter explained that when he found bin Laden in his bedroom the al Qaeda leader was standing up and had a gun "within reach" and it...

    ISLAMABAD - Globally recognised intelligence and forecast STRATFOR has rejected the US Central Intelligence Agency claim that the man killed in Abbottabad’s compound by US Naval SEALs was al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden. This was one of the reasons the CIA kept Pakistan’s premier intelligence agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in dark. The STRATFOR says: “The possibility that bin Laden was already dead and in terms of his impact on terrorist operations, he effectively was. That does not mean, however, that he was not an important ideological leader or that he was not someone the United States sought to capture or...

    You've heard what the politicians and news pundits described it. Now read how it really took place by the team that actually killed Bin Laden: _________________________________________________________ Osama Bin Laden was killed within 90 seconds of the US Navy Seals landing in his compound and not after a protracted gun battle,according to the first account by the men who carried out the raid. The operation was so clinical that only 12 bullets were fired. The Seals have spoken out because they were angered at the version given by politicians, which they see as portraying them as cold-blooded murderers on a “kill...

    THE mission to kill Osama bin Laden was almost called off at the last minute due to a lack of certainty over whether the terrorist leader was living in a Pakistani compound, a new documentary has revealed. In his first detailed interview since the al-Qaeda leader was shot dead by Navy Seals, US president Barack Obama revealed that he took a “gamble” and was advised not to go through with the risky operation. Just days before the May 1 attack, the CIA had advised there was a 60-70 per cent certainty that bin Laden was holed up with his family...

    President Barack Obama gave the go-ahead for U.S. forces to raid a northern Pakistan housing compound based on "what was probably a 50-50 chance that Osama bin Laden was there," his national security adviser said. "At the end of last year, we assessed that al Qaeda had been diminished ... to its weakest since 2001," said the security adviser... On April 28, Obama attended the last of several National Security Council meetings focused on finding and going after the al Qaeda leader. During that meeting, some advocated for the commando raid while others advised against it, Donilon said, given there...

    -snip- This new offensive is, of course, based on the premise that the 9/11 terrorist is alive. After all, there are the plethora of 'Bin Laden tapes' to prove it. Yet what if he isn't? What if he has been dead for years, and the British and U.S. intelligence services are actually playing a game of double bluff? What if everything we have seen or heard of him on video and audio tapes since the early days after 9/11 is a fake - and that he is being kept 'alive' by the Western allies to stir up support for the...

    The photos released of the fortified villa in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where Osama bin Laden died on Sunday night, May 2, show a satellite dish as well as cables and wires snaking along the outer and inner walls. Smashed computers appear in shots of the interior rooms. Far from dispensing with electronic devices and Internet connections as widely reported, the fortress that was the al Qaeda leader's last haven proves to have been equipped with both. All this up-to-date electronic technology would have opened the six-year old building wide to outside intelligence penetration and surveillance. Bin Laden additionally suffered from a...

    IT just doesn't add up. The official American explanation for the operation against Osama bin Laden keeps changing every day. But at every point it requires such a leap of faith into the extraordinarily unlikely that it has a disturbing ring of contrivance about it. There is no doubt the Americans conducted an operation and killed bin Laden on Monday, but the surrounding detail and overall narrative is difficult to swallow.

    All information about bin Laden should be treated with a healthy dose of skepticism. A Pulitzer Prize-winning 2006 book, The Looming Tower [1], scoffs at previous reports -- apparently well-regarded by the CIA -- that bin Laden has Marfan syndrome or kidney disease. Vital Statistics Bin Laden was born on March 10, 1957 [2a] . General Appearance [How tall is Osama bin Laden?] A journalist who met bin Laden in the 1990s described him as 6 feet 4 inches in height and "lithe and muscular" [3]. His beard has been streaked with white since around January 2000 (at least), when...

    Within hours of the raid on Osama bin Laden's Pakistan compound, the CIA had used 21st technology to get "a virtually 100 percent DNA match" on the dead man. But something out of another century may come back to haunt the United States: the al-Qaida leader's burial at sea. Conspiracy theorists on the left and right were quick to insist bin Laden was either still alive or had been dead for years, pouncing on the government's decision to slide the body of the world's most wanted man off a board into the Arabian Sea. The burial at sea largely followed...

    Sky News/Yahoo News ^ | May 2, 2011 | Sky News
    The circumstances surrounding Osama bin Laden's reported death raise urgent questions over how the US is so sure it got its man. US officials have said DNA testing has proved the al Qaeda leader was killed in a villa in Pakistan. They have also identified him by facial recognition. But photographs of Bin Laden after his reported death have not been released. The release of a photograph purporting to show bin Laden's corpse - which was later confirmed to be a fake - added to the confusion. Journalists have not yet had the opportunity to ask more than a few...

    OSAMA bin Laden's supporters say the al-Qaeda leader is dead. Shahid Ayan, who was hiding in Afghanistan's Tora Bora mountains with bin Laden during United States air raids in December, said the terrorist chief died 10 months ago. "Yes, Osama bin Laden is dead, but the jihad will continue until Judgment Day," he told United Arab Emirates newspaper Al Bayan. Shahid said that late on December 10 – "the 24th night of Ramadan" – there were "some scary explosions" in the area where bin Laden's cave was located. "The cave was completely erased from the ground and became nothing," he...
