Usama Bin Laden is dead

Postby Vega » Wed May 04, 2011 4:53 pm

Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. In addition, Bin Laden is a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world.

Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden has been killed by US forces in Pakistan, President Barack Obama has said.
Bin Laden was shot dead at a compound near Islamabad, in a ground operation based on US intelligence, the first lead for which emerged last August.

No doubt the world became safer with his disposal. However, shall we expect new bin Ladens in future as pert as he was?

He should have been dead years ago. You just cannot trust a Pakistani to tell you the truth. Knew some. Worked with some. Hated all of them. Bunch of liars and selfish. However, the most disturbing here to me is that his whatever wife was protecting him. I mean, what kinda human being was she? That man had blood on his hands and she protected him dearly?!?!? She's one of the reasons why those Arab men think women don't own half the sky. Pitiful!
