FOXNEWS.COM HOME > WORLD > NATIONAL Report: Bin Laden Already Dead Wednesday, December 26, 2001 * E-Mail * Respond * Print * Share: o Digg o Facebook o StumbleUpon o MySpace o Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader. "The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said. Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his grave was made as per his Wahabi belief. About 30 close associates of bin Laden in Al Qaeda, including his most trusted and personal bodyguards, his family members and some "Taliban friends," attended the funeral rites. A volley of bullets was also fired to pay final tribute to the "great leader." The Taliban source who claims to have seen bin Laden's face before burial said "he looked pale ... but calm, relaxed and confident." Asked whether bin Laden had any feelings of remorse before death, the source vehemently said "no." Instead, he said, bin Laden was proud that he succeeded in his mission of igniting awareness amongst Muslims about hegemonistic designs and conspiracies of "pagans" against Islam. Bin Laden, he said, held the view that the sacrifice of a few hundred people in Afghanistan was nothing, as those who laid their lives in creating an atmosphere of resistance will be adequately rewarded by Almighty Allah. When asked where bin Laden was buried, the source said, "I am sure that like other places in Tora Bora, that particular place too must have vanished."

I'm pretty sure bin Laden is dead but he probably died a long time ago. They just released information about his death a few days ago. It's weird how it coincided with Hitler's death lol

Wow, if he is really willing to testify that would be a huge break. I wonder if Obama knew about the situation? Is it possible that he had/has no clue that his strike team didn't kill Usama? Assuming, of course, that the article and statements are accurate.
lol..you think that guy will either a) live to testify or b) not testify at all due to judicial system being under the influence of politicians who are under the influence of corporations

Yet another thread showing yet more ignorance. "deny" ignorance its says on this site. If you were to put all evidence for the death of bin laden on a table and withdraw all that provided by the US government, the majority of evidence would still be on the table !! DUH!!!
Oops sorry, local pakistanis are paid by the US. Bin ladens wives paid by the US, bin ladens children paid by US etc etc.
THIRD PARTY NON US EVIDENCE PROVES HE WAS KILLED DAYS AGO BY US FORCES.
