Bin Laden's Death - The Ever Evolving Story

First, consider the following -
The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden’s Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.”

The ISI's official line has been that bin Laden's compound had "slipped off our radar" after it raided the building in 2003 while hunting for another senior al-Qaeda operative.The agency claims it was unaware that bin Laden was hiding there. Additionally, Pakistan claimed it had identified the potential hideout in 2009.

Barack Obama kept military commanders hanging by declaring he would 'sleep on it' before taking 16 hours to give the go-ahead to raid Bin Laden's compound.

Had it not been for heavy cloud cover on Saturday, troops would have been deployed then, but they waited another day, and reached Pakistan just before midnight on Sunday evening. Obama refused to tell Pakistan about the mission in case it was leaked by jihadist sympathisers within the administration and Bin Laden took flight.

A 40-minute raid on a million-dollar compound compound is conducted in the city of Abbottabad, Pakistan about 100 kilometers (62 miles) north of the capital Islamabad. Time of attack - Day.

The operation - code named 'Geronimo' - was watched by the President in real time from the helmet mounted camera of an elite Navy SEAL commando blacked out for 20 - 25 minutes.

The SEAL team was flown in by an elite Army Special Operations unit, known as Team 6 the Knight Stalkers based out of Fort Campbell, Ky. in a stealthier, top secret and never-before-seen version of a routinely used special ops helicopter. 'During the raid, we lost one helicopter due to mechanical failure'  The helicopter made a hard landing and was destroyed by the military team at the site, leaving behind wreckage for experts to analyze. It was destroyed with explosives before the SEALs left

17 or 18 people were inside the compound at the time of the attack.

As the SEALs moved into bin Laden's compound, It was a firefight going up that compound. "There were many other people who were armed ... in the compound," (5/3) only one of the five people killed in the raid that got Osama bin Laden was armed and fired any shots.(5/5) they were fired on by bin Laden's courier, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, who was in the guesthouse. The SEALs returned fire, and the courier was killed, along with a woman with him. Mr Brennan said on Monday that it was Bin Laden's son Khalid who was killed in the attack. (5/2) One of his adult sons - possibly 19-year-old Hamza bin Laden - the courier who led the CIA to Bin Laden and the courier's brother were also killed. She was hit in the crossfire.27-year-old Amal Al-Sadah, who was shot in the thigh as she rushed towards the SEALs when they entered his room.

The Americans were never fired on again as they encountered and killed a man on the first floor and then bin Laden's son on a staircase, before arriving at bin Laden's room.

John Brennan: 'He [Bin Laden] was engaged in a firefight with those that entered the area' a Pentagon official said that when SEALs stormed the room he was in, he was armed with an AK47 rifle and used a woman as a human shield so he could fire shots. 'He was firing behind her,' the official said.(5/2/2011, retracted)

It is understood Bin Laden, code named 'Jackpot', who had £450 worth of cash hidden on his person wasn't armed but that there were guns in the room. was unarmed but did 'resist'. And by the time they got to the third floor and found bin Laden who appeared to be lunging for a weapon The Al Qaeda leader had begged for his life and said 'it's not me' when he was confronted by the hit team . I think it - this was all split-second action on the part of the Seals."

The US Navy Seals made the final decision to kill bin Laden rather than the president.

Although President Obama saw the terror chief killed by a single bullet to the head, heard about Bin Laden being shot in the head and in the chest it was only when he received the signal 'Geronino E-KIA' - which stands for 'Enemy Killed In Action'- that he knew Bin Laden was dead.

At this point the SEAL team used a facial recognition system to positively identify the body of Bin Laden and Amal Al-Sadah, also helped to identify the body. Officials produced a quick DNA match from his remains that they said established Bin Laden's identity, even discounting the other techniques, with 99.9 per cent certainty.

Security officials said they did not recover any arms and explosives (5/2) During their detailed search of the compound and the 13-roomed house, during which they removed a squirt gun, two buffalos, a cow and around 150 chickens. A senior U.S. official said Navy SEALs had recovered 10 hard drives, 5 computers and more than 100 storage devices from the compound - including discs, DVDs and thumb drives. Those materials have been taken to the FBI lab at the Marine Corps base at Quantico, Va.

Pakistani Version
(Pakistani) Night
A Pakistani official rejected U.S. accounts of a bloody firefight, saying: ‘Not a single bullet was fired from the compound at the U.S. forces and their choppers. Their chopper developed some technical fault and crashed and the wreckage was left on the spot.’ They might not have even gotten bin Laden at all. (5/16)

Osama bin Laden and his comrades offered no resistance when killed by U.S. special forces in a Pakistani town. (5/5)

Surviving Bin Laden relatives, including six children and one of his wives, had been taken to hospital in Rawalpindi.

Senior Pakistani security officials said Osama bin Laden’s daughter had confirmed her father was captured alive and shot dead by the US Special Forces during the first few minutes of the operation carried out at the huge compound in Bilal Town, Abbottabad. 

The huge mansion has now been taken over by Pakistan’s security forces and the media is not allowed to go inside.

A neighbor, Tsur Shezaf,  claims Osama did not live there.


A U.S. government spokesman said it had been decided it would be difficult to find a country prepared to accept the body and then bury it within 24 hours of death as dictated by Islamic custom.

Preparations for burial began at 1:10 am EST (0510 GMT) on Monday and were completed at 2am EST.

The body was take to the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson and was washed before being covered in a white sheet and placed in a weighted bag. A military officer read prepared religious remarks which were translated into Arabic by a native speaker,' the U.S. official said over the corpse. 'The burial of Bin Laden's remains was done in strict conformance with Islamist precepts and practices,' said the White House counter-terrorism chief John Brennan.

His corpse was lowered toward the sea on one of the aircraft carrier's elevators. 'After the words were complete, the body was placed on a prepared flat board, tipped up, whereupon the deceased's body eased into the sea.' (North Arabian Sea)

Mainstream media starts circulating known bogus death photos.

Obama gets a 9 point jump in popularity polls.

Republican leadership doesn't want evidence - House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, says he has no opinion on whether the White House should release photos of bin Laden to establish that his body was in U.S. custody and he died as a result of gunshot wounds inflicted by the Special Operations unit that invaded his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Senator Scott Brown said - "I have seen the pictures. I've received the briefings. I've spoken to the operational leaders and I can tell you for a fact that he is dead,"(5/4) "the photo that I saw and that a lot of other people saw is not authentic."(5/5)

Obama visits ground zero.

Finally, please consider other government farces such as - Jessica Lynch and Pat Tillman.
