    Default Bin Laden: A Witness is Silenced

    After the 9/11 twin tower attack in New York, a joint US-Pak intelligence operation to hunt down terrorists of Al Qaeda in the War against Terror was started. Pakistan picked some 20 Al-Qaida top elites master minds of 9/11 attack who were on run in Afghanistan and after US invasion of Afghanistan were now escaping from there and trying to melt away in Pakistani cities in disguise along with other three million Afghani refugees. All the captured persons were handed over to US– whereas after a decade long struggle US after finding just one head Osama Bin Laden carried out a raid at his compound for which Pak ISI had also provided US a lead. This scoop has made US wild mad and over-joyous and they killed Osama Bin Laden at spot coldblooded. The raiders secretly swished his body away as a prized trophy, only to dump it later in the sea. Of course; elimination of most wanted person Osama is a grand trophy for US to celebrate her well sought victory in the US War against Terror.

    But for the hundreds of Conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11 attack and subsequent Bush hegemonic War against Terror that people call it a phoney war initiated by Neocons in which millions in Middle East, Afghanistan and Pakistan died at the hands of US lead invading forces— but the only witness and contender to all this who would expose US designs; namely Osama Bin Laden is —- silenced.

    Ironically; pictures showing Osama’s demise and burial are not allowed to be published but statement of his young wife Amal who hail from Yemen, is circulated widely to prove that; raiding Seal Team 6 killed not a frail, ailing Osama but a potent terrorist.
    Pakistan and US are although allies in the War against Terror but have got bottom rocked marriage like strange and full of distrust relations. After having killed Bin Laden by stealth helicopters raids and having swished away his dead body as a trophy; rather than being thankful to Pakistan for her decade long assistance and also leading US to capture the trophy target Osama; US has aversely turned back and allege Pakistan of being complacent in hiding Osama.

    Pakistan has categorical denied that they got any knowledge of Osama presence in Abbotabad, where the man was eventually found living a life which can be termed as vegetative life as it is now revealed that he as an ailing frail person was spending his days as an impoverished person in a high walled compound, staying off from the sight of local peoples and with his strict parda observing conservative family. He had not stepped out of his compound for last five years.

    There has been a practice that US and Pakistan have always been sharing all the intelligence information but ironically; US did not exchange the information when they had found that in the compound to which ISI had indicated to US, was in fact in occupation of Osama Bin Laden and kept this information as their Lion share. Even the raid attack on Osama compound was also kept secret to themselves which is a sheer betrayal and conduct unbecoming of an ally.

    As ISI has openly admitted that they were not in knowledge of Bin Laden presence in Abbotabad; they well not be aware of it and it may be counted toward their intelligence failure too but if CIA also checks their own track record; it may find that it is also not very promising. Reportedly CIA spends some $80 Billion per annum for their services which is more that what all the Intelligence agencies collectively use but it is known fact that they did not imagine the fall of the Soviet Union, the revolutions of Eastern Europe, the breakup of Yugoslavia, the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks against New York and Washington, the nonexistence of Saddam Hussein’s arsenal of weapons of mass destruction, the global financial crisis and, most recently, the Arab Spring.

    ‘We might ask ourselves how we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at George W. Bush’s compound, assassinated him, and dumped his body in the Atlantic’; says Noam Chomsky.

    Anyhow, after the death of Osama Bin Laden, Al-Qaeda, ultimately, is now a spent force in the region. Perhaps it is that his mystique does not turn him to become ‘Viva Zapata a Mexican revolutionary, known as incorruptible rebel leader who is guided by his desire to return the land to the peasants, who have been robbed, while forsaking his personal interest. His story meditates on power, military and political, which corrupts men.

    But question is that why play up Osama bin Laden’s death with such fanfare that you even forget your allies who enabled you; to come around and make a scoop for trophy and celebrate a Victory; which is invariably bestowed to US after countless sacrifices that Pakistanis rendered as a labour of love for US and acting as front state in the War against Terror.

    Credible Intel info was received and confirmed, The United States had to take a swift action to prevent losing a window of opportunity. The Special/Ops Boys were ordered to do their jobs, with ROE, fire when fired upon. Even a slight delay to advised the Allies prior to this mission would have been a bad idea. The President of The United States made a good call on this one. Kudos Mr. President....

    Pakistani ISI has a mixed record of cooperation in the war on terror. The 24 pakistani troops that were bombed near the border were firing, or were next to people firing at NATO forces in Afghanistan. This shows fairly inept intelligence within the 'tribal regions' where Usama Bin Laden was quite popular and gave money to tribal people who likely did not know that he boasted about murdering 3,000 American civilian office workers on 9-11. He, UBL, developed a taste for building up rebelious armies and raising money from oil rich, whahabists when he was an asset working to oust the Soviets from Afghanistan in 1980's. After the Taliban, who included the ISI supported Mujahedin took over Afghanistan, in the vacuum left by the Soviet withdrawal, and their collapse as an empire. He kept get funding and was eventually banned from returning home to Saudi Arabia after speaking against and plotting to attack the house of Saud. After the invasion of Kuwait in 1990, he offered the Mujaheddin fighters to fight Iraq's million man armored invasion force., but was outbid by the US offer of 500,000 troops, quartered in the Saudi Kingdom prior to the liberation of Kuwait. Rebuked, he then took up the cause of keeping infidels out of Saudi Arabia and attacking the royal family there.While the Al Qaeda organization, a list of names, the base, is spent is has inspired other dangerous groups that exist even today and will be destroyed.The racist members of al qaeda are at odds with freedom and the rule of law and the nation state system.

    The capture of Osama Bin Laden has been US policy for years. He is listed on the FBI 10 most wanted list. His death, while resisting capture to be tried for his crimes against humanity is a fact. Some governments engage in propaganda and we are understandably wary of these reports. osama Bin Laden used to work against the Soviet Army along with many wahhabist Jihadis. His role was more as a fund raiser and by giving money to local tribes in the Pakistani tribal areas created a safe haven there. he was found in pakistan near a Pakistani Army Base after all. Not everyone in pakistan is pro American but about half are and many have family in Europe and are trying to prosper. The politics of Al Qaeda are out of date and losing support among Arabs who have taken over their own governments during the Arab Spring movement of the last two years. The Muslim Brotherhood has there man as president of Egypt, the military council will protect him from any foreign policy misstep ofcourse as they work for the USA and are paid over 1 Billion per year to keep order in Egypt.The younger educated generation is rejecting the violent approach and becoming part of the political process. In time they will be good neighbors and strong allies.

    There is no doubt that Osama Bin Laden was killed long after the dailymail article referenced here says he died of kidney failure at tora bora or maybe by the heavy bombardment. Osama Bin Laden died along with 3 others and his son at a compound in Abottobad, a suburb of the Pakistani capitol. This article among thousands should help clear this up. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americ...132275789.html.
    We are all entitled to our opinion and point of view, however when spreading ideas like this, that O B L the pervert, and killer of children, died back in 2001 it can serve to undermine the legitimate efforts of decent people to keep order in society. The holocaust happened and your troubles are your own doing. Allah Akhbhar
