Why It Took Ten Years


Pages: 1 2

America failed to locate Osama Bin Laden for almost 10 years not because it wasn’t trying hard to find him, or because American intelligence is incompetent. It took so long because the Godfather of Terror was surrounded by many Muslims who would rather protect him with their lives than give him up to America — and no amount of financial reward was going to convince them to give him up.

There is no doubt that many Muslim leaders knew exactly where Osama was hiding — and that it was not in the caves of Pakistan and Afghanistan, but in a huge mansion with very high fences that indicated to the whole neighborhood that someone big was hiding there. Nothing happens in a Muslim country without the knowledge of its intelligence and leadership. Also nothing goes unnoticed in a Muslim neighborhood where people habitually monitor activities on the streets and who comes in or goes out of homes.

Muslim leaders knew very well that their lives were on the line if they handed over Bin Laden to the Americans. They know where the Islamist groups are, where the terrorists train and where their money and support comes from. Support for Al Qaeda and many other jihadist and terrorist groups, even the so-called reformed Muslim Brotherhood which produced Al Qaeda, runs deep in the psyche of many Muslims.

But gradually the love affair of many Muslims with Bin Laden started fading away and other jihadist heroes took his place. That was a signal to the leaders of Pakistan and perhaps other Muslim leaders to go ahead and give him up to the United States since it is now less dangerous for them and perhaps can be used as leverage for some demands from the U.S. government. The calculations for giving up Bin Laden now were much better than before. The capture of Bin Laden also coincided with a sharp decrease in Obama’s popularity — which desperately needed a boost before next year’s elections. The need for America was increased and the fear of Muslim leaders of giving him up was decreased; and so, voila: Bin Laden was killed.

    I'm happy that OBL got it, but Obama's statement that he was not a real Muslim was typically ignorant and arrogant. OBL WAS a true Muslim, just as Obama is a true know-nothing.

    • Raymond in DC

      Apparently Obama thought Osama was Muslim enough to deserve the "honor" of a Muslim burial. We wouldn't want the Islamic world to think we don't respect them now, would we?

      • tanstaafl

        Why he couldn't be buried with a pig escapes me. After all, he wasn't a "true Muslim". I mean, the President would know who a "true Muslims is, won't he?

    • bayo

      you guys are nuts with zero brain. i wish we could deport all of you to pakistan to face the music.

  • Jay

    I wonder if the trees and the rocks told the Americans where to find Bin Laden, just like it says in the hadith…..

    No, wait a second…..actually the trees and rocks only talk to MUSLIMS and only when they're trying to kill Jews. Silly me,

    Article: Years of Deceit: Bil Laden Long Dead

    • Yetwave

      Midgie,
      If you believe this, your name aptly describes the dimensions of your intellect. While it is true that John Wilkes Booth actually yelled "Sic semper tympani" when he hurdled from Lincoln's box because he was rejected as a kettle drum play in the Ford's theater orchestra, and the anti tobacco radical Charles Guiteau was aiming for a spittoon when Bill McKinley accidentally obscured his line of fire, there is no truth to the rumor that Osama had been cryogenically frozen to be ised as a prop to bolster Obama's sagging polls.

    midgie you've got a midget sized brain!!!

      the photo they been showing goes back to 2010?(according to this blog)-That was my point. Not the article.

        As Richard Grenier famously pointed out: "Conspiracy theory is the sophistication of the ignorant."

    Passing out sweets today! We should send some to the terrorist supporters at the terrorist supporting hama-linked terror supporting organization and their terrorist supporters at cair. Here's a link…. http://www.mariniscandies.com/product/BACON-01/Ch

      Send them a "we're happy the son-of-a pig is dead" fruit basket. hee hee

    Gimme a break. If all this was President Obama's covert intent, he would have thought of it well before November 2010. Cut the man some slack — it took a long time to find bin Laden because he was protected by his own kind and because those who might have ratted him out would have been dead meat.

      whatever the reward was it should go to the Wounded Warriors Project to help our members of the armed services who have been chasing this man and others for us.

  • tagalog

    Who gets the multi-million dollar reward? I hope the SEALs get it, but they probably won't.

  • rockman

    Bin Laden sleeps with Luca Brazzi.
    To whom do we send the NY Times wrapped fish?

  • tagalog

    As far as I'm concerned, they can have all the virgins they want, as long as it's in the afterlife and they're dead.

    Please do not paint all Muslims with the same brush. Read Stephen Schwartz's book, "The Two Facres of Islam."

  • chsmith

    Congratulations to our military, may they ever be about defending this Nation, not used as a perverted social experiment, by our inferiors. And yes the jihad will continue

  • jtbaumgart

    Bravo Zulu to the Seals. Being a former Sailor, I can say, "Well Done Guys"

    Now to the article. I would have to disagree with MS Dawish. Pakistan has been rather dubious in it support of the US in our attempt to bring UBL to justice. In fact, some agencies, the ISI of Pakistan is helping Al Qaeda.

    I read where it was Bin Laden's wife who sold him out the SEALS. I guess she got tired of him beating her..

    What was that song that Clint Eastwood's character sang in the film, Paint Your Wagon ? The lyrics were something like:

    I talk to the trees, but they don't hear me . . .

    I guess the Eastwood character was writing a haditha. And, now, the CIA and Seals have written the last one for OBL. I guess OBL bet on the weak horse.

  • Gamaliel Isaac

    There was a lot of American incompetence also. Read the The Mission The Men and Me. America bombed empty buildings which simply caused leaders like Osama to move away from where they could be destroyed years ago.

  • John

    How many billions are we going to keep giving away to other conteries – we need to shut it down then the'll like us again and help us more?

  • Steve

    I saw somewhere the Pakis gave up OBL in return for the USA out of Afganistan. At the very least, an interesting idea.

    If I have a date with a pretty girl and apropos nothing she shows me her passport to assure me she is a citizen my mind might go through several steps: 1. Isn't that odd. 2. Why show me her passport? 3. Who cares if she is a citizen or not? 4. Wait a minute, if she works so hard to convince me she is a citizen, there is a good chance that she isn't a citizen and that the passport is a fake.

    Why the DNA on Osama? Why the fast funeral? Our armed forces have killed a lot of Muslims before and nobody worried about burying them so fast. We are shows hundreds of pictures of Osama over the past years, shooting a gun, riding a horse, in meetings, climbing rocks. How about a picture of the dead Osama???. Would that have been against Muslim religious law which the White House follows so properly? Donal Trump might ask for a death certificate. Maybe that will come by and by – like the birth certificate. It's hard to find fast forgers.
