It is ironic that because he is innocent that he has to pay for it
with his life, while some, obviously guilty like Gadafi and Assad, are
allowed to live happily ever after.
Osama may be guilty for supporting the 9/11 suicide bombers but that
does not make him a murderer. If he were a murderer, then many other
Muslims are also murderers, as so are many US a nd western supporters
of the murderous Jewish Israeli soldiers.
Is Osama guilty of ORDERING suicide bombers to attack USA? These are
voluntary soldiers that are willing to sacrifice themselves. They are
not ordered against their own free will. They are not even paid. How
can they enjoy the money paid to them? The stupid jewish propaganda
that these suicide bombers are paid money to their mothers are just
nonsense. Is there any mother who would prefer money over their dead
sons, who can earn much more if they are alive, or sold as slaves,
rather than dying? Only sick minds will consider such actions.
To explain the reasons is to explain why the American passengers
decided to to fight to the death to stop the aeroplane from hitting
the white house. They know that they will die anyway, so why should
they bother about dying? It is just a standard human reaction. If they
know that their fight is useless, they don't mind dying.
A very interesting comment by the reporter who interviewed Osama for a
few times. He is surprised to have been called a Muslim for his honest
reporting. This is actually a standard Muslim practise and comment but
utterly alien to the westerners. For Muslims, the teaching of Islam is
not unique to Muslims. Even non-Muslims, are capable of practising the
standard practise of Muslims and will be rewarded in the hereafter.
You don't need to be a follower of Muhammad to be granted heaven, or
to be called Muslims.
Not only Osama, who has been saying these things(treating high
integrity westerners as Muslims), but also my friends, which I
believe, is a result of our Muslim upbringing. This may be alien to
the Christian or Buddism or Hinduism, but it does not mean that Islam
has to be similar to them.
As to Obama being innocent. There are 20 US soldiers versus only about
4 from AlQaedah, including Osama. All are dead, not even a single
witness. There are even reports that Osama is not even armed. One
report suggested that he was trying to take a gun. Come on, the
fighting had been going on for a few minutes. Why should he try to
look for a gun just before he was shot?
Maybe Osama was also brainwashed by the movies that he used to see as
a teenager, of Western soldiers who will not kill unarmed villains, no
matter what the cost in their lives are. They was just movies after
all. Osama is not even a villain. He is not in the same class as
Hitler. Osama has never ordered people to kill. Suicide bombers are
not soldiers who are ordered.
Gadafi and Hitler ordered soldiers, paid with money for daily expenses
and luxuries, to kill on their behalf. The mercenaries in Libya now
are just as innocent as the German soldiers in the 2nd world war. The
guilty ones are Hitler and Gadafi.They should be the one who should be
killed in order to save countless innocent lives, the Western Allies
as well as the Axis soldiers. The stupid western governments keep on
repeating the same mistake. Killing the mercenaries and paid soldiers
of Gadafi while allowing Gadafi scot free.
On the other hand, killing an unarmed, non-violent Osama. Osama has
not even threatened western lives. He only advised them that they will
get what they did onto others, i.e. death and destruction, by the
victims of the western atrocities, in Palestine, Saudi Arabia and
Iraq. Western governments may not be atrocious but by supporting
atrocious leaders like Mubarak, Gadafi and Sadam, they are just as
Muslims, as well as Osama, are just as confused as to who are the real
innocents. But if someone feels that they are willing to die for
revenge against atrocities committed against their people, the
Palestinians or Iraqis, who are we to judge against them. It is like
judging the suicidal US passengers who tried to stop the plane from
crashing the white house and thus kill more innocent lives that are
not even related to them, apart from just being US citizens.
Similarly for the Saudi citizens, flying the jets into the twin
towers. They are fighting for their Muslim comrades in Palestine who
are suffering under the Jewish Israeli regimes, strongly supported by
the US government, although t hey are not related to the Palestinians.

In the first few hours after the world learned that U.S. forces had
killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, most news reports said he had
been involved in the firefight at his compound in Abbottabad,
Pakistan, and at least implied that he was armed when he died.

Osama bin Laden.
And it was said that a woman on the scene had been used as a human
By Monday evening, as more details emerged, it was being reported
(including by The Two-Way) that bin Laden likely did not fire a weapon
in the last moments of his life and that the woman who was killed
likely was not a human shield and died in crossfire.
Now seems like a good time to go through the transcripts to see just
what has been said:
— Sunday, 11:35 p.m. ET: President Obama addresses the nation and says
"Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted
operation. ... A small team of Americans carried out the operation
with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed.
They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a firefight, they
killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body."
— Monday, 12:03 a.m. ET: "Senior administration officials" brief
reporters. One says that bin Laden "did resist the assault force. And
he was killed in a firefight." He also says that "one woman was killed
when she was used as a shield by a male combatant."
— Monday, 2 p.m. ET: John Brennan, the president's top
counterterrorism adviser, tells reporters that bin Laden "was engaged
in a firefight with those that entered the area of the house he was
in. And whether or not he got off any rounds, I quite frankly don't
know." Brennan also says "there was a female who was in fact in the
line of fire that reportedly was used as a shield to shield bin Laden
from the incoming fire."
— Tuesday, 1:57 p.m. ET: White House spokesman Jay Carney, during his
daily briefing, says "there was concern that bin Laden would oppose
the capture operation — operation rather, and, indeed, he did resist.
In the room with bin Laden, a woman — bin Laden's — a woman, rather,
bin Laden's wife, rushed the U.S. assaulter and was shot in the leg
but not killed. Bin Laden was then shot and killed. He was not armed."
Asked about what type of resistance bin Laden put up, Carney says
"resistance does not require a firearm. But the information I gave you
is what I can tell you about it."
After another question on the topic, Carney says "it was a highly
volatile firefight. I'll point you to the Department of Defense for
more details about it, but it was a — he resisted. The U.S. personnel
on the ground handled themselves with the utmost professionalism and
he was killed in an operation because of the resistance that they
The New York Times writes this morning that Carney "and other
officials reiterated that this was a violent scene, that there was
heavy fire from others in the house, and that the commandos did not
know whether the occupants were wearing suicide belts or other
And Fox News reports it has been told by a "senior U.S. official" that
bin Laden "appeared to be reaching for a weapon before being shot."
The National Journal says it has been told by officials with knowledge
of the situation that the Obama administration preferred that the
mission end with bin Laden's death, but that if he had indicated he
wished to surrender he would have been taken into custody.
