Osama Bin Laden, hiding in a million dollar mansion; now deceased

Osama Bin Laden

It’s been at the top of the news around the world. The most wanted terrorist, Osama Bin Laden, the founder of the militant Al-Qaeda organization was killed on May first during an operation in Pakistan that had been under the directive of U.S. President Barack Obama. Bin Laden, fifty three years old, was shot in the forehead while inside a mansion valued one million U.S. dollars in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Bin Laden was responsible for the September eleventh suicide plane crashes into the Twin Towers in New York and on the Pentagon in Washington, as well as other terrorist acts around the world.  Bin Laden first made it onto the F.B.I. Ten Most Wanted and on the F.B.I. Most Wanted Terrorist list after the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya.  Nations around the world have been congratulating the U.S. government on the successful mission that removed the head of Al-Qaeda.  C.E.O. in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Alexis Rosado, also discussed the operation with the U.S. Ambassador to Belize.

“I don’t know that Al-Qaeda is the force that it used to be one time and I don’t know that Bin Laden was as influential as he was now as he was back then either; so I am not too worried that it will have disastrous effects—that we should expect what they call revenge or something like that brought upon the U.S. or any other nation. That does not mean however that we should let our guard down, but like I said earlier, the world has also learned how to deal with terrorism.”

Jose Sanchez

“All in all though, there will be some sort of diplomatic note or congratulations to the U.S. Government from Belize?”

Via Phone: Alexis Rosado

“Well I could tell you that just yesterday I had a meeting with the U.S. Ambassador where he fully briefed me on what transpired and how they looked at it and of course, I welcomed the news and expressed our solidarity as we have always done. Remember now this is not something that only the U.S. was looking for Al-Qaeda and other terrorists, this is something that the entire international community through the U.N. had send out a signal and had deplored these acts. Bear in mind that even though it occurred on U.S. soil, it was really an act of barbarism against nations, civilized nations.”

The U.S. is contemplating the release of images of Bin Laden to satisfy naysayers.

    Like many, I rejoiced at the news because I remember a time when we could board a flight without taking our shoes off, when we did not have to show up 4 hours before the scheduled take off for an overseas flight & did not have to stand in line outside LAX in the middle of the summer waiting as they scanned every bag on the newest antiquated machine they could get their hands on after this man’s followers blew up the WTC And if anyone remembers flying America West, some got the “star” treatment, an additional pat down before they were allowed to board. Yes we had a lot more freedom & we’re not getting it back.

    As far as his living arrangements, he is no different from other leaders They live in luxury while others sacrifice & shed their blood because it is easier to die poor & stupid while lashing out at other people who are just a paycheck or two away from poverty instead of asking the big man why if he is as concerned about fairness & godliness as he professes & has the ignorant believing Why did he chose to hang on to the trappings that his privileged background afforded him? There will be more idiots, I’m sorry believers, willing to kill in his & Allah’s name but whose status will not change because the man with the gold will not relinquish his power, he’ll just show the ignorant what the other gluttonous infidels are doing to keep him down.

    With Bin laden death there is sense of celebration, with a knot of fear in our hearts. Terrorism is meant to inspire fear both in the flesh and in the minds of those targeted by its power, but as a civilized people we should not tolerate or accept terrorism of any kind.
    As I sit back in the depth of my anticipation of what’s to come, it fills me with a sense of cool inside when I say ………………..Go to hell Bin laden.

    I really hope that this is no political scam to have ratings up. I would prefer to see photos although those can be retouched. Seeing Saddam Husseain hanged was proof, where is the proof?

    watch WAG the Dog movie and then you all will know how the U.S.A secret intelligence works then you all will think twice before believing everything the U.S tells you.

    Why be skeptical of this? No way it is fake. Too many people with different agenda agree on this thing. The US politician stab his best friend in the back if he get the chance. Then he smile real big and tell him “no comment”. That man is dead. Proof is not entitled to everybody. We need to stop expecting things, all over the world need to do that. Pakistan lucky old GW Bush not still in office. He would have something to say about this. Slap them with that Texas glare. Looking back on Bush, i no agree with that man so much, but he see things a certain way. He see through some a the BS out there. He knew to take the tough position. For good or bad, we up against evil at times it seems. Good to have these world leaders that can make tough decisions that will help us in the end. I’d rather live in a US style world than a Afghanistan one anyday. I need a coca cola, a belikin, a smoke now and then. And not that Hookah they got over there. This Bin Laden was a sorry individual. Selfish and proud. He see himself as GOD i think.
    That no good for the ego! Humble bin Laden Humble!!! ha! Too late, mister, Too LATE!

    Osama never watched army movies before. Otherwise he would have known that America always wins and that the US Millitary is nothing to mess with.

    ok…so Bin Laden, is dead! kudos to the US Gov’t and the brave elite Navy SEALs who through courage and special tactics put and end to the life of the world’s most wanted terrorist. Anyways, just listening to Mr. Rosado, the CEO in the Ministry of Foreign affairs gave me a headache.

Anyways, just listening to Mr. Rosado, the CEO in the Ministry of Foreign affairs gave me a headache. The man has no clue as to what in the world he is trying to say. My 8 year old nephew could have spoken with more diplomacy! The man sounds as dumb as he looks. You and your government are an embarrassment to our Nation. Your vocabulary is so limited it is pitiful! It is said to see that the only time you can part take in a conversation is when you and Gasper Vega speak about contraband and buying votes! You have nothing to do and you are still getting paid…Read a book dude, and when you’re finished, pass it on to Mr. Vega, (word of advice…pick a book that has more words than pictures!)
