I wonder why they don't talk about other deaths. How is to possible to fine Laden alone and kill him without hurting any other... Also interesting is Obama's comment that no US personnel were hurt...

What ever GUBO happens, the aam admi across the World will read the words "OBL" "Pakistan" "Islamabad" "Mansion" - very important words in psy-ops. It is not some cave or ravines near the border. This is going to get etched in people's memory.

Report says US team flew into pakiland from Afg, killed OBL, took his body and flew back out. No US casualties.

1. Pakistan's core leadership - i.e. the army - has known of Osama all along
2. Amirkhan found out and last week confronted Pakjabis with irrefutable evidence, large carrots and larger sticks.
3. Pakjabi army gave up Osama.
4. Pakistan is even more f*cked as the more pious start to realize the implications of # 3.


This seems the most logical explanation. Kayani has known about this for a while.

Bin Laden Dead, U.S. Official Says

http://thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/05/01/bin-laden-dead-u-s-official-says/?hp

By HELENE COOPER
WASHINGTON — President Obama announced late Sunday that Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks, was killed in a firefight during an operation he ordered inside Pakistan, ending a 10 year manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist. American officials were in possession of his body, he said.

The fate of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the Al Qaeda number two in command, was unclear.

The death of Mr. Bin Laden is a huge punctuation in the American-led war on terrorism. What remains to be seen is whether the death of the leader of Al Qaeda galvanizes his followers by turning him into a martyr, or whether it serves as a turning of the page in the war in Afghanistan and gives further impetus to the Obama administration to bring American troops home.

One American official said that American forces, acting on intelligence, launched a “targeted assault” that killed Mr. Bin Laden, whose ability to elude capture for so long deeply frustrated the Bush administration.

The news of the death of the leader of Al Qaeda was bound to electrify the world, particularly as it comes a full decade after American forces, under President Bush, launched their all-out assault to find the man responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks.

Since those attacks, Mr. bin Laden was able to elude capture by hiding out in the mountains of Afghanistan and elsewhere. He initially escaped from Tora Bora in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan after an American invasion routed the Taliban, his protectors. Since then, he issued some 30 messages, in audio, video or electronic text. Intelligence officials believe they were passed from hand to hand repeatedly to obscure any trail back to his hiding place. Even while in hiding, he remained a potent symbolic figure. And American officials believe, based on intercepted communications from second- and third-tier Qaeda operatives, that he also still helped shape Al Qaeda’s strategy.

Osama Bin Laden has been killed when TSP reached the bottom-most point in the curve of diminishing returns!

Same as smashing the head of a dead snake.

Abbottabad is less than 5 km from Kakul, where TSP military academy. What does that say, was OBL an instructor there? :lol:

Regardless how the world media spins it, the key words "OBL" "Pakistan" "Islamabad" "Mansion"are good code words that we should use to beat the Pakistani's from now on.

Its fake news.

The reason its being given publicity is because US needs a reason to withdraw from Afg and declare mission accomplished.

Have to admit that the Delta/JSOF of Amir-khan really lived up to their hype by getting a team inserted+firefight+succesful extraction with suspect body without a casualty.

When will we see such Indian ops?

So the pakis kept laden close to their chests, right in islamabad. We did suspect laden would be somewhere in pakistan, but this comes as a surprise - right in islamabad, of all places!

It would be entertaining to see how the pakis sleaze themselves out of this one! What explanation can the fools possibly give for laden living in a mansion right in the heart of islamabad!

Now is the time when India should really feel the pinch about being ripped off by USA-TSP gubo-ment. This is too much of a clinical operation by unkil to be a spontaneous one, it was deliberate, pre-planned and expect lot of the details to be fabricated with 10 bits of disinformation for every grain of truth!

not Islamabad but Abbotabad, which is still close enough to Islamabad :)

The title of this thread "may" be changed :)

Sum:

I am sure that there would be a Plan A, Plan B, and a dozen backup plans for this. I am sure they would have gamed this to death!

You make a very important point. Looks like Unkil and Paki used OBL to milk whatever they could from each other; it was getting so boring that OBL lost importance among his own fold and just when it was going to be a tame draw this happens.

That's easy to answer because it more than likely did not happen. Its fake news - US needs to withdraw from Afghanistan and so comes this story of OBL's death.

So just like Shane Warne knew about the Ind-Eng tie game in WC 2011, Jay Leno had accurately predicted in 2003-2004... His line went like this..
Mushy in a news conference.. Osama is not in Pakistan
Mushy's wife later.. Who then is the guy hiding in our basement

I always believed he was staying in the presidential mansion in Pakistan to be safe from US forces, may be they moved him out to be killed.

Looks like they knew his whereabouts for almost a week. If it is true, then the OBL sympathizers in Pakistan did not come to know about that.
NBC continuing to report it is unilateral American operation. The JSOC elite continuing to be mentioned in NBC.

ramana garu.,
Every spin will come on US media. If u remember the day of 911, they immediately talked about Saddam and Iraq. The media is yet to clearly deliver AlQuida = ISI = PA. This is all actually created to screw India but backfired couple of time in the form of 911 and other attacks against American interests.

Come on people, 330 users online at this point! Need to bring out all the righteous BR venom out to draw out all the BOTS and set some huge web hits. Probably could surpass the 28-Nov 2008 mark of 575 today!

So bring out all the Paki and Unkil perfidy in full force and display! So much for creating a lasting psy op fantasy of OBL hiding in kave kaamplex #420, the vermin was actually done away with in a f$%@*() MANSION! How very paradoxical!

The Pakistani Army helicopter that crashed in Abbottabad was trying to rescue Osama. US forces shot it down.
