    President Obama has endured entertainment industry criticism over the last few years for requesting premium broadcast air time for making speeches. But Sunday night’s abrupt and unexpected interruption is unlikely to draw any complaints. Multiple news organizations are reporting that the White House is set to announce that, at last, Osama bin Laden is dead. ABC, CBS and NBC have cut away from scheduled programming to cover this enormous news. With all the back and forth between President Obama and Donald Trump in recent weeks, Twitter flared up with amused conspiracy theories when NBC News cut away from Trump’s Celebrity...

    WASHINGTON — Osama bin Laden is dead and his body has been recovered by U.S. authorities, U.S. officials said Sunday. U.S. President Barack Obama was to make the dramatic announcement shortly in a hastily called, late-night appearance at the White House. It is a major accomplishment for Obama and his national security team. Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, had repeatedly vowed to bring to justice the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, but never did before leaving office in early 2009. U.S. officials said that after searching in vain for the al-Qaeda leader since...

The frightening information was in thousands of pages of dossiers of detainees being held at the controversial Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba.

    Liberals are no longer seeing "change we can believe in." Just 37 percent of self-described lefties say in the latest Rasmussen poll that they still strongly approve of President Obama's performance. That's way down from 63 percent a year ago, 57 percent earlier this year -- and 52 percent just a week go. And the 19 percent who said they "strongly approved" equaled not only the lowest percentage of the 2-year-old presidency but also less than half of the 39 percent who said they "strongly disapproved." Pollster Scott Rasmussen blamed the stunning drop in support on Obama's liberal base, noting...

Some could face U.S. military tribunals. President Bush defended his plan to put terrorist suspects before a military tribunal, saying Friday that they will be treated more fairly than Americans were in the deadly attacks of Sept. 11. The number of prisoners jailed at the makeshift detention center at Afghanistan's Kandahar Airport has risen steadily this week, and the Pentagon was expecting the addition of a ...

    l-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden called on France to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan in exchange for releasing French hostages being held by affiliates of the extremist group, according to a new audio message broadcast on an Arabic news channel Friday. "The exit of your hostages out of the hands of our brothers depends on the exit of your troops from Afghanistan," bin Laden said in the message broadcast by al-Jazeera. Bin Laden reminded the French people of President Nicolas Sarkozy's refusal in November to withdraw the French troops from Afghanistan and to negotiate with al-Qaida over the hostages.

The official, who has access to sensitive intelligence information, told CNN that Bin Laden was not holed up in a cave, but has been moving between houses in the Chitral district and the Kurram valley, which neighbours Tora Bora in Afghanistan, from which he fled in 2001. Recent reports had placed him much further south, in North Waziristan, the base for many Taliban insurgents moving back and forth across the Afghanistan-Pakistan border....

    Intelligence officials and people familiar with an unfolding terrorist plot to target Europe tell NPR that Osama bin Laden is involved. Several months ago, sources say, bin Laden used couriers to send a message to al-Qaida's affiliates and partners: He told them that he would like to see a Mumbai-style attack on at least three strategic targets — the United Kingdom, Germany and France. Osama bin Laden's directive is meaningful because it suggests that the core leadership of al-Qaida still has influence over its followers and that the group has added a new style of attack to its repertoire.

"The fact that it took him four weeks to get a congratulatory message out or a message of condolence... indicates literally how far buried he is probably in the very, very most remote and mountainous region."

The truth is that there have been credible leads, and these leads point to Iran....

    AFP - Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday denied recent press reports that Osama bin Laden is in Tehran and insisted that the Al-Qaeda leader is, in fact, in the US capital of Washington. "Rest assured that he's in Washington. I think there's a high chance he's there," the Iranian leader told ABC television in an interview. Without backing up the claim, the Iranian leader said he had "heard" that bin Laden was in the US capital.

    <p>Usama Bin Laden Is Living Comfortably in Iran, Documentary Asserts By Ed Barnes - Usama bin Laden gets up each morning in his dark, damp cave in northern Pakistan, gripped by fear, listening carefully for the telltale sound of a drone that is searching for him... An Iranian who supplied falcon camps says he saw and met with Usama Bin Laden six times since 2003. His eyewitness accounts adds to a growing body of evidence that the world’s most wanted is living comfortably in Iran. Usama bin Laden gets up each morning in his dark, damp cave in northern Pakistan, gripped by fear, listening carefully for the telltale sound of a drone that is searching for him. His isolation is almost complete. Only a few trusted associates know where he is, and they visit rarely -- bringing food and news, but careful not to fall into a routine. There is no radio or other electronic device whose signal might be followed. He can’t go out in daytime for fear of satellites. It is a grim, lonely existence. At least, that is the picture that has emerged of the life of the world’s most wanted man since he fled Tora Bora in 2001. But a new and vastly different picture of the Al Qaeda leader's life has been emerging over the past few years. In this scenario, he wakes each morning in a comfortable bed inside a guarded compound north of Tehran. He is surrounded by his wife and a few children. He keeps a low profile, is allowed limited travel and, in exchange for silence, is given a comfortable life under the protection of Iran's Revolutionary Guard. The idea that Bin Laden is in Iran got a strong boost recently with the premiere of a documentary called “Feathered Cocaine.”</p>

    One line sheds light on Bin Laden’s condition in Iran: “In the movie, Parrot said the Iranian regime is giving bin Laden “a long leash” but is holding his family hostage in Tehran in the event bin Laden revealed his relationship to them. “This was confirmed by one of bin Laden’s sons last year,” Parrot said. This seems like a very plausible theory. As Parrot mentions, one of Bin Laden’s sons has confirmed that his family is being against their will in Iran. One daughter escaped via the Saudi embassy.
