In my opinion, if OBL made any action aside from putting his hands in the air, then he was going to be killed. OBL's entire evil operation revolves around bombs. If the seals hadn't given OBL the "double tap", it could have meant certain death for all. How were they to know whether or not OBL had that entire compound to wired with explosives with a trigger on or near his person?

What I find hypocritical is the fact that OBL sat atop the "Most Wanted" list for almost 10 years with a "Dead or Alive" next to his name. For the entirety of that time, I do not recall one single instance where anyone questioned the "Dead" part of the "Wanted" list. If dead was not an option for some, then where was the outcry before his death?


Thank you very much! This is perfectly reasonable and true.

hahaha , I hope most of you realise that this all part of their game.

Think about for a second, When we heard the news OBL got murderd ,most of us here went like B.S.
Now with all this new information comming out,people go like " ha sure,explosive vest , like he was wearing a suicide vest" . And there you have it people dont believe that he was wearing a vest, but suddenly they do believe he was killed. pretty clever.

Your goverment is doing a darn good job convincing he was indeed killed.

Gotta love it.

Apologies for the bad grammar

Haven't you all heard? Wearing explosive vests to bed is all the rage in Pakistan at the moment. Seriously though, if they thought he was wearing an explosive vest, why did they shoot him in the chest? I mean gun fire from an automatic power rifle would trigger off any cheap explosives he would have been wearing.

There are more holes in the US Governments story than Swiss cheese, I think they've really messed up on this occasion. This just goes to show the Government can so easily lie to us and most of us gobble up every budget deficit war words they speak.

Bin Laden might have been evil, but he was a human being. All human beings no matter how bad deserve equality and to be treated like everyone else. I'm sure if Bin Laden were related to Obama somehow in another life, things would be different..

New poster, long-time lurker here (6 years ha). If 9/11 was an inside job like MANY claim it to have been, and bin Laden was America's scapegoat, the one to blame for the attacks, then they had to kill him, not capture him. It could have come out that he was working for the US gov't and the US gov't couldn't have that. They said "Let's put an end to this 9/11 chapter by finally taking him out. We're at a low point in America at the moment, and this will help to re-patriotize (?) our people." But he could not be taken alive... if the whole "9/11 was an inside job conspiracy" is true.

Looking forward to contributing to the boards folks!


Yes, you are absolutely right. However, another scenario is that this was not Osama but one of his many lookalikes, used over the years by the CIA to make the occasional video or audio tape whenever the CIA wanted to put more life into the phony war on terrorism. Remember how Jack Ruby silenced the patsy Lee Harvey Oswald before he could reveal that he was working for the CIA as a double-agent spying on pro-Castro people and that he did not shoot JFK? I agree that the same motive was behind this attack, but I am not sure it was Osama. It could have been one of his lookalikes whose contract with the CIA was suddenly "terminated with extreme prejudice" because the CIA had decided they did not want the world to believe that Osama was still alive. That would explain why his body was dumped at sea - no body to be returned to Osama's relatives for them to uncover the deception. And, of course, why no photos were released of the man's body.

Some of these stories are just getting more and more laughable, perhaps out of pure desperation on the part of the MSM and our governments to make us believe them.

Yeah, I'm sure every paid up member of Al Qaida(TM) and it's affiliates go to bed every night wearing a suicide vest!


Seriously, who writes this garbage?

White House: Dude, three days in and they're not buying why we had to shoot an unarmed terrorist.

Director: Oh, I know! We can tell them....

Not really a comment. Something a child does when they are asked to go to bed. take their medicine or do something helpful and useful that they simply do not like or understand.

Sure I think they should have done what we do here in the USA and put a weapon in his hand. What is the difference. The man is dead. Now everybody is sticking up for him? Get a life people.

Just who are we all sticking up for here?
All we want is the truth of the matter, not contradictory ever-changing "facts" and spin. So far, few "facts" have been presented that have not been withdrawn or proved inaccurate.
The whole "fog of combat" excuse is laughable too. This was not some bloody raging battle, it was a small incursion against a house with a few occupants. If they cannot present a full and accurate accounting of a brief period of time from a few players within minutes, then there is something seriously wrong and we are being played.

Alive? Sorry Pal, dead is the only way that this waste of breath should have been taken. Wrap his corpse in pig skin then inject swine guts into his body.. ON VIDEO!

I see allot of people speaking up and saying OBL wasn't responsible for 9/11 and this was an illegal assasination.

Lets get past that portion... (Even though, I feel he is responsible for 9/11 also)
1) 1992 bombing of the Gold Mihor Hotel in Aden
2) Bin Laden funded the Luxor massacre of November 1997
3) November 14, 1995 truck bombing of a U.S.-operated Saudi National Guard training center in Riyadh
4) 1998 United States embassy bombings in Africa;

The world is a better place without this SCUM !!

The US offered the body to the Saudi's (which i wouldn't have) They didn't want him... Why would we bring the body back? Feed it to the pigs!

Alive you say? So we can spend Billions on security and the court fiasco it would turn into. Some of you will say that the US govt. doesn't want him to have a speaking platform... really? Like the man couldn't have released a video AT ANY TIME, saying anything he wanted to. Lord knows, the media would have aired it..

Some others, with mental deficiencies, keep saying "He didn't do 9/11 and they don't want him to tell the world that"

Really?
Osama Bin Laden 2004


"We decided to destroy towers in America," he said. "God knows that it had not occurred to our mind to attack the towers, but after our patience ran out and we saw the injustice and inflexibility of the American-Israeli alliance toward our people in Palestine and Lebanon, this came to my mind."



Guilty as charged... "Hey Osama, can you feed the fish for me?"

Yeah.. and here's the thing. If we are to trust anything that clown Obama says, he watched the whole thing go down live on video screens in the comfort of the Whitehouse... Yet for some reason currently unknown to all but himself and his cronies, he allowed these inaccurate stories go to air first. The man and his advisors were more than aware of what was being reported through the media... and this bozo just let it go on.

This whole debacle has quickly descended into one mighty cluster-f**k... and I feel this is by design. The next logical question is "why?".

Let me get this straight!

1. One Pakistani neighbour to the compund is twittering that there's a lot of noise from helicopters over his house at the exactly same time the raid supposedly is taking place.

2. The official story says the raid took 40 minutes in total before they took one OBL away in one of the helicopters.

3. Yet they want us to believe that during that noises going on - OBL was still asleep in his bed, with a suicide vest, during loud helicopter noises and loud shooting (in the supposed firefight between the OBL-people in the coumpound and the commandos fighting their way into the compound) only to wake up exactly at the same second they reached the 3rd floor where they say OBL suddenly reached for the wall and his stash of guns dressed in one of those suicide vests under his sleeping Pyjamas.

They are actually trying to sell that OBL tried to reach his guns, only when he was just newly awakened from bed (despite all noises) dressed in one suicide vest under his pyjamas - and it was only then he tried to reach his guns when he saw them storming up the stairs in to his third-floor bedroom - and YET! knowing that this man was loaded with explosives around his body, they shoot this suicide-vest-wearing-man in the chest from a very near distance without any thoughts of any explosion which could have killed all of them in such a closed space?

Yeah right!

Wow, sleeping in a suicide vest for 10 years must have been really uncomfortable. What if his wife got mad at him, do you think she would pull the detonator?

This angle was clearly created in response to those crying out about shooting an unarmed man (something I personally do not have a problem with in this case). But that is what it's all about.

They're making it up as they go along. Listening to the chatter as it comes in and then adjusting the story accordingly.

First OBL was armed but it raised concerns he would be considered a hero/martyr. So then they said he was unarmed. That resulted in some being upset that they killed an unarmed man so they now claim they feared he was wearing a suicide vest. lol

If I wasn't so mad, I would actually be laughing at this circus.

The OP article says it was a double shot to the head, which is totally consistent with a belief that OBL may have been wearing an explosive vest. The article makes no mention of a shot to the chest. If you are going to discount that part of the article and believe that there was a shot to the chest, then why not discount the entire article?

I love how people selectively take "facts" from different unofficial sources and piece them together so that the story fits their agenda or belief.

From the OP article:


Instead, he was shot twice in the head in a so-called “double tap”, which is typically used to kill suicide bombers as it ensures instant death, with no risk of them being able to detonate their device.

Google 'Osama shot in head and chest' for the original story. THIS article may make no mention of a chest shot but others do.

I guess it wasn't possible for his wives or teenaged daughter to be wearing a suicide vest?

Shouldn't they have been killed also?

These are questions the MSM should ask, one would think. But who am I? I don't have a degree in journalism.

OOo this story goes against anderson coopers story, He said he was shot dead because of a fear that there was weaponry behind the door

Obviously! My point is that if the OP article is inaccurate in one aspect of it's story, then how can we blindly accept the remaining portions of it?
