    The influential Saudi Binladin Group has been suspended by Saudi Arabia after one of its cranes at the Grand Mosque in Mecca collapsed last Friday, killing 107 and wounding 238 people at the holiest site in Islam which houses the Kaaba cube Muslims pray towards. Ironically the lethal crane collapse took place on September 11 amid high winds and a sandstorm; Binladin Group was founded in 1931 by the father of Osama bin Laden, the infamous late terror leader of Al Qaeda who conducted the 9/11 attacks against the US exactly 14 years earlier. Osama's brother Bakr runs the Binladin...

    Business Insider ^ | 05/11/2015 | Maxwell Tani
    Veteran investigative journalist Seymour Hersh is vigorously defending a controversial new story that claims the White House lied about crucial details of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.Hersh's story, published in the London Review of Books on May 10, alleges that the US government misled the public about many of the details surrounding the 2011 raid on bin Laden's compound in Abottabad, Pakistan.Relying largely on a single anonymous source, described only as a retired senior US intelligence official, Hersh claims that Pakistani intelligence officials were aware of and actively hiding bin Laden.He claims that the intelligence tip that led...
  • Did Obama lie about the Osama bin Laden raid?

    The official story of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden reflects American derring-do. US forces snuck deep into Pakistan to conduct a commando raid on the world’s most-wanted terrorist less than two miles away from Pakistan’s premier military academy. The Pakistani government vehemently protested the action afterward, but America finally got the top terrorist of the network that conducted the 9/11 attacks. Barack Obama took credit for making the call on the dangerous incursion, and reminded voters repeatedly during the 2012 election that he was the man who got bin Laden.Four years after the raid, a new version...

    Four years after U.S. forces shot dead Osama bin Laden at a house half a mile from Pakistans top military academy, the Pakistani doctor who allegedly ran a fake vaccination program for the CIA to find the al Qaida chief but didnt find him is serving a long prison term on questionable charges of aiding an insurgent Pakistani militant group, his attorney said. Suspected CIA operative Shakil Afridi has paid a heavy price for the huge embarrassment caused to Pakistans powerful military and its security services by the discovery of bin Laden: In addition to his 23-year term,...

    On August 6, 2011, a military helicopter Extortion 17 carrying thirty-eight men (including twenty-five of the elite SEAL Team 6, five National Guard and Army Reserve, and eight Afghan commandos) was shot down over Taliban-controlled territory in eastern Afghanistan. They had been on a top secret mission to take out a high-value target. It was the worst loss of life in a single day since the war in Afghanistan began. Per a 1250-page military report, it was simply the result of a lucky shot by Taliban soldiers perched on top of a building. Per families of those killed and military...

    Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes isnt afraid to talk to the press. After the Navy SEAL raid in which Osama bin Laden died, he spoke to The New Yorker, Newsweek, the Washington Post, National Journal, and Vanity Fair at least. He also helped coordinate access for the filmmakers of Zero Dark Thirty. He recently cooperated with a New York Times profile of himself, and his mother, Jane Rhodes, answered questions for a GQ feature about him and his brother, CBS News President David Rhodes the byline of which included Bens former White House colleague Reid Cherlin.

    Would Mitt Romney have ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden? President Barack Obama's reelection campaign released a new video on Friday that strongly implies that he would not have, using the presumptive Republican nominee's own words against him. Ever since Vice President Joe Biden boiled down Obama's 2012 slogan to "bin Laden is dead, GM is alive," it has been clear that the embattled incumbent would not hesitate to use the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL strike as a political weapon. The video, taken from footage shot for Obama's 17-minute campaign commercial "The Road We've Traveled," opens with...

    Osama Bin Ladens three widows and children will be deported from Pakistan to Saudi Arabia after this Tuesdays expiration of their 45-day jail term for illegally entering and living in the country, their lawyer said on Friday.

Indian television and CNN quoted their lawyer as saying they would be sent out of the country Wednesday.

    WASHINGTON The enormous cache of computer files taken from Osama bin Ladens compound contained a considerable quantity of pornographic videos, American officials said on Friday, adding a discordant note to the public image of the Islamist militant who long denounced the West for its lax sexual mores. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity about classified material, would not say whether there was evidence that Bin Laden or the other men living in the house had acquired or viewed the material. The discovery of the pornography, first reported by Reuters, may not be surprising in a collection of five...

    A new picture emerged Thursday of what really happened the night the Navy SEALs swooped in on Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan. CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports the 40 minutes it took to kill bin Laden and scoop his archives into garbage bags were all recorded by tiny helmet cameras worn by each of the 25 SEALs. Officials reviewing those videos are still reconstructing a more accurate version of what happened. We now know that the only firefight took place in the guest house, where one of bin Laden's couriers opened fire and was quickly gunned...

    Its been less than 72 hours since President Barack Obama announced that U.S. Special Forces a small team of Americans had killed Osama Bin Laden. Since then, his administration has been hard at work screwing the whole thing up. Lets start with that speech Sunday night. It was originally announced for 10:30 but didnt happen until 11:30. By that time, the news Obama was supposed to be breaking had broken already. Not the best start. Presumably he was delayed arguing with his speechwriters about keeping in all the I, Me, and Mine. Everything having to do with this raid was...

    ISLAMABAD - Photographs acquired by Reuters and taken about an hour after the U.S. assault on Osama bin Ladens compound in Abbottabad in Pakistan show three dead men lying in pools of blood, but no weapons. The photos, taken by a Pakistani security official who entered the compound after the early morning raid on Monday, show two men dressed in traditional Pakistani garb and one in a t-shirt, with blood streaming from their ears, noses and mouths. The official, who wished to remain anonymous, sold the pictures to Reuters. None of the men looked like bin Laden. U.S. President Barack...
