Al-Qaeda Confirms Death Of Osama Bin Laden

File-Osama_bin_Laden_portraitThe jihadis vow to take revenge, of course, posting messages on extremist websites saying that Al-Qaeda will remain “a curse chasing the Americans and their agents.” Peter Walker reports for the Guardian:

Al-Qaida has confirmed the death of its leader, Osama bin Laden, and vowed vengeance, pledging in a statement posted on militant websites that his blood “will not be wasted”.

In what is apparently the first official reaction from the militant Islamist group since Bin Laden was gunned down by US special forces troops who raided his hideout in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad, the group called on the people of Pakistan, “where Sheik Osama was killed”, to rise up against their leaders.

The group would soon release an audio message from Bin Laden recorded a week before his death, said the statement, dated 3 May and signed by “the general leadership of al-Qaida”. There was no independent confirmation that the message was authentic but it was posted on websites through which al-Qaida habitually issues statements.

It continued: “We stress that the blood of the holy warrior sheikh, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is precious to us and to all Muslims and will not go in vain.

“We will remain, God willing, a curse chasing the Americans and their agents, following them outside and inside their countries. Soon, God willing, their happiness will turn to sadness, their blood will be mingled with their tears.”

The statement came as US intelligence officials said Bin Laden had remained in close touch with the rest of the al-Qaida network from his safe house and had continued to plot potential terrorist attacks, including one against the US railway system…

    “Al Qaeda released a statement on jihadist forums confirming the
    death of its leader, Osama bin Laden, according to SITE Intelligence
    Group, which monitors militant messages,” reports CNN.

    “The statement, translated by SITE, lauded the late militant,
    threatened to take action against the United States, and urged
    Pakistanis to “rise up and revolt.”

    SITE’s claim that “Al-Qaeda” has confirmed the official White House
    version of events concerning the death of Bin Laden, thereby lending
    presumed credence to a narrative that has quickly attracted derision and
    suspicion even amongst mainstream journalists,
    is about as credible as if Barney the Purple Dinosaur had made a
    statement assuring us that Osama was killed on Sunday evening.

    SITE is a US military-industrial complex front and has been caught
    red-handed releasing fake Al-Qaeda tapes on numerous occasions.

    The SITE organization is nothing more than a contractor for the U.S.
    government, receiving some $500,000 a year annually from Uncle Sam,
    the majority of which is paid for by U.S. taxpayers. The group was
    founded by Rita Katz, the daughter of an executed Israeli spy. Katz has worked closely with the Department of Justice, Department of the Treasury, and the Department of Homeland Security.

    SITE’s website content was found to be largely copied from the U.S.
    State Department. “SITE’s “Terrorism Library, on cursory investigation,
    looks to be a straight data scrape from the U.S. Department of State’s
    Patterns of Global Terrorism – 2003, Appendix B,” notes SourceWatch. This organization is nothing more than a dummy group which acts as a conduit for Pentagon propaganda.

    Everything about SITE indicates that it is nothing more than a trojan
    horse that is regularly used by the military-industrial complex to
    release staged Al-Qaeda videotapes as part of the ongoing propaganda
    offensive to justify the brutal, pointless and manufactured war on
    terror.

      Well so much for the hopes that this would quiet down all my conspiracy friends claiming that OBL is still alive. But then, people still don’t take their word at having done 9/11 either.

      Of course, Al-Qaeda prefers him dead as they happen to really like martyrs.

        who would think a dying man since 2000 would still be alive? he couldn’t have made it to 2011…

      So, according to Alex Jones, are there any legitimate sources of information, or does he just select any detail from any source to fit his narrative?

      As long we’re making wild statements without providing any proof, I’d like to mention that Osama was actually a rainbow-shitting time-traveling unicorn and a scout for the planned invasion of our planet by the forces of Pegasus 9, a planet from the Sirius star system. The US gov’t has admitted this in tapes that don’t exist anymore. Isn’t it suspicious that the gov’t refuses to even acknowledge the notion that Osama was a unicorn? Why would they do that unless they had something to hide?

    Do any of you real people wonder about how many posts are written by the fake people created by our government.

    • Tuna Ghost

      As has been noted several times (recently, and on this very site), conspiracy theorists are notoriously resistant to things like evidence and reason. Any government sock puppets would be the ones arguing for the conspiracy theories in order to distract the public from more immediate, more actual threats and abuses.

      To be honest, though, I would kill for one of those sock puppet jobs. My brother works for the state department and he gets crazy good benefits.

        I’m sure his benefits are nothing close to as good as Congress’s
