I find it very puzzling that Bin Laden who must have heard the helicopter crash and the shooting downstairs didn’t have his weapon in his hand ready to fire on his attackers when they got to him on the 3rd floor. Also puzzling is why he didn’t even try to destroy the computers and disks so they would not fall into his enemies hands. He had the time. His daughter told Pakistan authorities that her father was captured alive and was taken downstairs and killed. Perhaps she’s telling the truth.May 5, 2011 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #764712cherrybimParticipant
As I said, new truths come out every day. It was in the AM and he was oisek b’mitzvah. 15 fully equipped SEALS versus one old man coward with a gun? Osama was no Rambo and hoped to be taken alive.May 5, 2011 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #764713adorableParticipant
he is a stupid arab and thought he was infallible.May 5, 2011 4:33 pm at 4:33 pm #764714SacrilegeMember
First of all they said there was a fire fight…. that involves weapons. Secondly, if you think you are ever going to find out exactly what happened at that compound, save your time and energy. You arent.May 5, 2011 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #764715
The reports say that Bin Laden was reaching for his weapon when the SEALS came into his room, Bin Laden was not involved in the firefight. My question is why didn’t he grab his weapon before they came in if he intended to fight to the death and not surrender? You are right on your second point, no one will tell, especially if his daghter’s version is the real truth.May 5, 2011 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #764716YW Moderator-80Member
i wonder where they got the known dna of obl to compare to the guy that was killed to confirm his identity.May 5, 2011 5:02 pm at 5:02 pm #764717am yisrael chaiParticipant
The US saved his sister’s brain (died in the US)for future DNA comparisonMay 5, 2011 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #764718YW Moderator-80Member
that explains why they said it was ALMOST a 100% match.May 5, 2011 5:08 pm at 5:08 pm #764719SacrilegeMember
I’m sure there are going to be 100 different reports. He’s dead (hopefully). I dont care how. Party!May 5, 2011 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm #764721EzratHashemMember
There is a whirlwind of information swarming around us, what percentage of it is really the truth? Seems to me our intelligence and military are compromising an awful lot of secrecy if anything we are hearing is true.May 5, 2011 5:27 pm at 5:27 pm #764722midwesternerParticipant
Osama has a huge family, not all of whom are symapthetic to his cause. I heard that they have samples from more than a dozen relatives.May 5, 2011 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #764723
I wouldn’t be surprised if the report of the seizure of computers and disks is DISINFORMATION by the US to scare and confuse existing Al Quieda leaders. As I wrote before, don’t you think Bin Laden or the others there would have at least tried to destroy those computers before they fell into their enemies hands? They had at least a few minutes to do that.May 5, 2011 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #764724Pac-ManMember
When 2 dozen commandos land on a helicopter with guns blazing ready to kill on site, and and are wrapped up in half an hour, the last thing the thugs are thinking of is saving or destroying their computer data. They were pishing in their pants trying to stay alive.May 5, 2011 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #764725boredinofficeParticipant
I still have not seen one solid shred of evidence that he is dead. I think it is a shamMay 5, 2011 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #764726
If the computers were on the 1st floor, I can possibly hear what you’re saying. But if they were on the 3rd floor with Bin Laden as I would guess they would, he would have had several minutes to destroy such sensitive information about the orginization that he lead. You’d think that they’d even have it set to blow up with a push of a button for just such an emergency.May 5, 2011 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #764727Pac-ManMember
Bin Laden only cared about his own life. He couldn’t give a whiff about computer data when he knew the commandos where coming up to get him. He was probably dead within 15 minutes of the helicopter landing. The next 18 minutes was mop up and gathering data. And you don’t know where the computers where, but it was probably on the first floor with the courier.May 6, 2011 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #764728I can only tryMember
Why wasn’t Bin Laden armed?(
Because he was on his way to a costume party, and he was going as Venus de Milo.May 6, 2011 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #764729bezalelParticipant
that explains why they said it was ALMOST a 100% match.
There is no such thing as an 100% match, that would require the tester to have knowledge that there is no other individual that have the same DNA sequence.May 6, 2011 9:39 pm at 9:39 pm #764730deiyezoogerMember
The compound is near a Pakistani militery base with helicapter noise all the time.
