Very interesting!!!

That may help explain why our chopper was 'shot' down and they have no true explanation for it.

Did we bargain with Pakistan to let us take this credit instead????

Raises the eyebrow a bit

I don't understand why everyone was posting that they didn't know what the president was going to say, when the heading of this thread says it all?????


Thread title was edited afterwards, obviously.

I have a theory about the tape

the reason why they would not display it right now in obviousness

Osama saying on the tape after a little speech that his Alquaeda cells in USA
have succesfully acquired a portable NUKE and have activated in one american city
without mentionning which one

Imagine the mass panic that would create
better then any attack .. lie or not .. the us would be in total choas caused by fear

Obama would then impose the martial law in each states

Ummm ok American version Osama, Arabic version Usama and it's doubtful she would have said his full name in the midst of firefights.

Fair enough. I thought they called him something else over there. Still, amazingly lucky to catch that in the heat of battle.
(BTW there's no such language as "American"; I assume you mean English.)


Ah, well maybe they did. Ok yah American version to me was just what we would say here in America, but you are right.


As you say, fair enough!

Every time the same happens to any of our soldiers we scream with righteous rage, the barbarians etc. But we are allowed to just assassinate whoever the president gives the ok to, classifying people with labels like combatants, that imply guilty until put in the ground. I thought we were supposed to have the moral high ground in this righteous war?


So. No. You don't have any law to quote.

Prisoners of war DO have international regulations.

Bin Laden's compound was close to a military garrison and was only around 40 miles from the capital Islamabad.



Assuming it is now likely Pakistan has already supplied nukes to Al Qaeda, and that is in fact why Osama's compound was in an area of Pakistan that is also home to MANY retired Pakistani military officials.

Do you really want to know how deep this rabbit hole may go?

For all we know, the nukes are in-route, or already inside of either, or both the USA and UK, and cells are awaiting messages to deploy and detonate them at specific targets, according to a timed plan, set before Osama's untimely demise.

There are "insiders" who claim that the CIA has known this location to be an Al Qaeda compound for a very long time, why all of the sudden was the urgency for the raid?

Was Osama really even there, did he even exist?

May be a good idea to prepare for the mother of all 'terrorist' attacks, just in case.

Preferably before June.

Chinooks are noisy as hell, you can hear them from miles away

No better way to advertise your arrival.
Somebody was asleep, with earplugs & all............


Yeah,
Thank god for someone with a bit of common. I've seen them often enough, not only are they noisy, you feel them from miles away. This thing is crazy. There are other things to consider too. When the troubles here were bad, some of the ethnic groups, non Irish or english. living here built similar fortifications for protection, while us, as long-term residents didn't. The difference though, is that everybody knew who they were, You'll know what I mean.

On Fox news, Musharraf has made a statement that while although he is glad Osama is taken out, he feels the sovereignty of Pakistan may have been violated in the raid....so, ya know, BO gets the go ahead of UN and NATO forces to go into Libya, but doesn't even get permission from the Pakistani govt., although they knew our drones were in their space.

Well as the critics of Obama have always said...Obama is green and inexperienced at foreign policy

and his supporters say: Thank god for that...

Pakistan is just upset that they didn't get enough time to move him again...

Pakistan's sovereignty is threatened by its own rogue military and the rampant cultural corruption every day on a far extreme level than a this operation threatened it.

Interesting. Here is a video of a Pakistani official saying that they gave consent for the operation. Seems we have conflicting stories within Pakistan as well.

What I've gleamed so far is that 3 Sikorsky MH-53 were initially used in the operation:



Each one could carry a squad say, so about 30 Navy Seals took part in the take out. One helicopter was shot down by RPG fire (according to Pak sources) but backup helos were on station and got all the Seals out (and the body)

The US carrier Carl Vinson has been mentioned, so this may have been staged from there. Also the body was buried at sea, and Afghanistan is land locked.

You can view the compound on Google Earth with these co-ordinates: Bin Laden's compound @34.169275,73.242545

I am a little surprised at the number of people bemoaning the death of this mass murderer, who led nutjobs to attack embassies in Africa, the USS Cole, 9/11, 7/7 and others. Are you rooting for this guy? Do you have a prayer bump? You guys are on the wrong side of history.

Killing any leader of an organization will have an effect, and this is positive for slowing down Al Kaka. I won't be hiding under my bed for any possible "retaliation". That's what they want.

Personally I think they killed him because they did not want a three ring circus for the next 2 years, and I for one am glad I don't have to hear or see him again. They retrieved computer hard drives and documents from the compound so more retaliatory ops against others may be forthcoming.

The only thing that concerns me is that this compound was only a km or so from the Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) which is like the US West Point and CIA headquarters. They must have known Bin Laden was there and protected him. If Pakistan didn't have nukes, I wouldn't care, but this will be interesting geopolitically.

Anyone UK based intrigued by the fact this information is released on May Day, during an extended 4 day holiday that marks the Royal wedding? A lot of people are in a very relaxed 'bank holiday' mood here- the timing seems too perfect, especially with the media being saturated with 'wedding fever' and sense of the masses being united in celebration of a 'unifying' event.

Anyone got any thoughts on this?


I said to someone last week to watch out for something happening around this time while there's a feel good factor about the place. Royal wedding, decent weather, long weekends have gotten people in a good mood. Now this story about Bin Laden breaks and people could think the worst is over when in fact the worst could be yet to come.

First date to watch for is May 14th, FA Cup Final day.

Hopefully it will pass without incident but somethings going down soon and it ain't Bin Laden to Davy Jones's. locker.

Who cares? It's becoming clear that Pakistan was indifferent, if not complicit in him hiding there,

Not sure why you're surprised either. Obama has already said that if Pakistan was unwilling to act, we would regardless.

Yeah, cos' it's just so easy to transport nukes to various western countries and sit on them like eggs until the green light comes.


Al Qaeda don't have nukes. They have boxcutters. And even if they did, they wouldn't have a clue how to use it.

Stop fear mongering.

"Pakistan's sovereignty is threatened by its own rogue military"


That's just what Ike said of the US military all those years ago, also post use of nuclear weapons. So what's new?
