Bad intelligence or done on purpose?
For the past however many years, we have been spoon-fed the lie that Bin Laden was “hiding in the mountain caves”, living like a wanted man, trying desperately to keep his Al Qaeda network alive though couriers and recruits. However, as with most stories told to us by the Federal government, not only was it “incorrect”, it was a lie. Bin Laden spent the last 5-6 years living a custom built mansion in Pakistan with every possible amenity you could ask for. He wasn’t even really hiding. So when you think on how he was “captured and killed” at the start of the 2012 presidential election cycle at a time when Obama poll numbers keep dropping, just chalk all this up to an a-m-a-z-i-n-g coincidence. Yep, that’s it.
“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Osama bin Laden lived for the past five to six years in the compound deep inside Pakistan where the al Qaeda leader was killed by U.S. forces, President Barack Obama’s counterterrorism adviser said on Tuesday. Bin Laden, who was living in Afghanistan before a 2001 U.S.-led invasion helped topple its Taliban regime, was holed up in a compound in the military garrison town of Abbottabad in Pakistan before Sunday’s operation to kill him.
“Well I think the latest information is that he was in this compound for the past five or six years and he had virtually no interaction with others outside that compound. But yet he seemed to be very active inside the compound,” White House counterterrorism chief John Brennan said on the CBS Early Show program. “And we know that he had released videos and audios. We know that he was in contact with some senior al Qaeda officials,” Brennan added.
“So what we’re trying to do now is to understand what he has been involved in over the past several years, exploit whatever information we were able to get at the compound and take that information and continue our efforts to destroy al Qaeda,” Brennan added.
The fact that the al Qaeda chief had lived in the compound for such a long time has prompted some U.S. lawmakers to demand a review of the billions of dollars in aid the United States provides Pakistan, which is fighting a Taliban insurgency.” source – Yahoo News
