Seems everybody wants to say Osama Bin Laden had no communication from his compound. But I would like to point out this photo with a dish.
But this is not a satellite dish because it is not pointed in the sky to satellite. This dish is most likely a long range Wifi antenna. Here is a company located in Abbottabad. GOWIRELESS PAKSITAN.www.ugowireless.biz...
Seems they sell wifi connections that use the same dish located at Osama's compound.And then we need to figure out where is it pointed from my best knowledge it is pointed away from the military buildings that Osama's compound was near. Seems it was pointed in the oppisite direction. Put there is not much in that direction and a mountain is nearby which would block any transmissions past them. And then theres the case of the sign painted on the walls at Osama's compound for a Jamia Girls College. Seems this college never existed. They even have a website in the sign that never existed? jamiagirlscollege.com
Did Osama possibly have the internet and was in communication with others? Are they just trying to cover it up? Seems even the dish is gone now.

Trolls will troll OP. They stated that he didn't have an Internet connection. They need to interview locals in the area.

I asked that in my thread too...dunno what the "official story" is. I believe there were no phone or internet LINES. Could have been satellite for both.
Intel shows bin Laden held firm control:
Kinda hard to hold firm control without some kinda communications.
