A story from March 25, 2011 by Christopher Hope, Robert Winnett, Holly Watt and Heidi Blake for the Telegraph hints at what we might have to look forward to now that Osama is fish food:

Al-Qaeda terrorists have threatened to unleash a “nuclear hellstorm” on the West if Osama Bin Laden is caught or assassinated, according to documents to be released by the WikiLeaks website, which contain details of the interrogations of more than 700 Guantanamo detainees…

A senior Al-Qaeda commander claimed that the terrorist group has hidden a nuclear bomb in Europe which will be detonated if Bin-Laden is ever caught or assassinated. The US authorities uncovered numerous attempts by Al-Qaeda to obtain nuclear materials and fear that terrorists have already bought uranium. Sheikh Mohammed told interrogators that Al-Qaeda would unleash a “nuclear hellstorm”…

Osama Bin Laden: Death Of An Advertising Icon

It may come as a surprise to some Americans, but since 9/11, Osama bin Laden’s name and visage have been prime fodder for use in corporate ad campaigns (elsewhere) around the world, symbolizing a range of meanings. Buzzfeed has an overview of some of the best examples of Osama advertising, demonstrating that terrorism, like sex, sells. Just imagine the unbelievable bankability he would have commanded had he not been in hiding.

Was Pakistan Hiding Osama Bin Laden?

Del474753Bin Laden was discovered not in the godforsaken, lawless borderlands but living in a million-dollar mansion in a touristy suburb nearby Pakistan’s top military academy. Steve Coll of the New Yorker writes that the Pakistani military was obviously sheltering bin Laden and that al-Qaeda’s other top leaders are likely being given safe haven as well, but the United States simply cannot press the issue — Pakistan has nuclear weapons and is “too big to fail”:

Abbottabad in the hills to the north of the capital of Islamabad, is in an area where much of the land is controlled or owned by the Pakistan Army and retired army officers. The city is most notable for housing the Pakistan Military Academy, the Pakistan Army’s premier training college, equivalent to West Point.

Looking at maps and satellite photos, I saw the wide expanse of the Academy not far from where the million-dollar, heavily secured mansion where bin Laden lived was constructed in 2005.

Unanswered Questions Surround Bin Laden Death

Osama Bin LadenYesterday the New York Times ran a story entitled “The Persistence of Conspiracy Theories,” the essence of which was that “those who doubt Mr. Obama’s citizenship fit the mold of other conspiracy theorists: they don’t loose their grip on their beliefs easily, if at all.”

Kate Zernike, the author of the story, quotes Kenneth D. Kitts, a professor of political science at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, who says “It almost becomes an article of faith, and as with any theological belief, you can’t confront it with facts.”

Later the same day came the news that American “Special Forces” had killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. It comes as little surprise, given the skepticism at large in the U.S. today, that obvious candidates such as Texas radio host Alex Jones called it a staged, faked event, immediately publishing a story on his InfoWars site entitled Red Alert: Government Had Osama bin Laden Frozen for Years.… Read the rest

Bizarre Coincidence: Bin Laden And Hitler Died On Same Day

Adolf HitlerFrom Global BC:

In a truly odd coincidence Osama Bin Laden and Adolph Hitler apparently died on the same day, well, at least the announcements of their deaths occurred on the same day.

Sixty-six years ago it was announced on the evening of May 1, 1945 that Hitler killed himself in his bunker in Berlin.

On Sunday night in the USA it was announced that Osama Bin Laden was killed in a firefight with U.S. forces.

Keep in mind, the timing of these death announcements are all in U.S. Eastern Standard Time.

Osama Bin LadenHas Mad Muammar taken a leaf from George W. Bush’s playbook — If in doubt blame Bin Laden? From BBC News:

Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi has told state TV that Osama Bin Laden and his followers are to blame for the protests racking his country.

In a phone call addressed to residents of the town of al-Zawiya, Col Gaddafi said young people were being duped with drugs and alcohol to take part in “destruction and sabotage”.

Col Gaddafi is battling to shore up control of Tripoli and western areas. Protesters have been consolidating gains in cities in the east. Opposition politicians and tribal leaders have held a key meeting in the eastern town of al-Bayda to show a united front against Col Gaddafi.

The telephone call addressed al-Zawiya, 50km (30 miles) west of the capital, where fighting now appears to be the most fierce.

Col Gaddafi said the protesters had no genuine demands and were being dictated to by the al-Qaeda leader.

Expert Points to Strong Evidence of Raising the Dead: Bin Laden Presence in Yemen

An Al Qaida expert tells Gulf News he has no doubts that wanted Al Qaida leader Osama Bin Laden either visited Yemen or is actually based there…

I Smell BullshitOsama bin Laden is dead. The news first came from sources in Afghanistan and Pakistan almost six months ago: the fugitive died in December [2001] and was buried in the mountains of southeast Afghanistan. Pakistan’s president, Pervez Musharraf, echoed the information. The remnants of Osama’s gang, however, have mostly stayed silent, either to keep Osama’s ghost alive or because they have no means of communication.

With an ego the size of Mount Everest, Osama bin Laden would not have, could not have, remained silent for so long if he were still alive. He always liked to take credit even for things he had nothing to do with. Would he remain silent for nine months and not trumpet his own survival? [New York Times, July 11, 2002]

“I have no doubts that Osama either visited Yemen or is actually based there,” Atwan told Gulf News in an interview.… Read the rest

Osama bin Laden Living Comfortably in Pakistan

It's no great surprise to learn that bin Laden isn't hiding in a mountain cave, considering that he's probably been receiving kidney dialysis and other medical treatment for years. Barbara Starr reports for CNN:
Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Osama bin Laden and his deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri are believed to be hiding close to each other in houses in northwest Pakistan, but are not together, a senior NATO official said. "Nobody in al Qaeda is living in a cave," said the official, who declined to be named because of the sensitivity of the intelligence matters involved. Rather, al Qaeda's top leadership is believed to be living in relative comfort, protected by locals and some members of the Pakistani intelligence services, the official said...
