after U.S. Special Forces (SEALs) launched a late-night raid on his compound in
Abbotabad on Monday Osama bin Laden, the face of al-Qaeda and the man who
introduced suicide bombing to Pakistan in the mid 1990s, blew himself up to avoid
capture. This is according to a senior Afghan intelligence
It has been learned that his
body was cut to pieces, as happens in suicide attacks, leaving no option for U.S.
forces other than simply to identify him. The senior Afghan intelligence
official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that the Americans had planned
to nab him alive. “But they miscalculated. Osama blew himself up to avoid
capture,” he said confidently, but declined to give further details. The
source asserted that before and after the action, he was in frequent contact with
the U.S. Special Forces involved.
According to one counter-terrorism
expert we spoke to, “The Americans had to conduct a DNA test to help establish
his identity. That is why U.S. President Obama straightforwardly blocked
publication of the photos, saying 'they might act as incitement to additional
violence.' He (Osama) was left unrecognizable, which is why the photos are too disturbing
The expert said that U.S.
claims that their forces shot him (Osama) dead are completely false, adding that
in a case of death by gunshot to the dead, he would have been
identifiable, no matter how many times he was shot. The Americans claim they
shot Osama in the head and chest. So why didn't they show his body parts?
As he was the man who introduced
suicide bombing to Pakistan by directing the first-ever such suicide attack on the
Egyptian Embassy in Islamabad in 1995, Osama fits the profile of someone who
would use the tactic. “Back then, it was an Egyptian dissident who rammed a bomb-laden
vehicle into the Embassy,” one of the experts emphasized.
Only the Tamils of Sri Lanka
had taken up this trend earlier. “Osama combined his vision of Arab bravery and
Tamil precision. He had begun recruiting around the world and he ordered
hundreds of suicide attacks in Pakistan.
“So in the end, he, too, blew
himself up. That is why the Americans have nothing in hand to show or prove
that they shot him dead. A suicide bomber explodes into pieces and only their DNA
can identify them,” our expert said.
The authorities kept the
compound closed for several days, only opening it to the media later on, which
also raises questions about the authenticity and credibility of the U.S.
In November 1995, a suicide
bomber crashed a car loaded with explosives into the Egyptian Embassy in
Islamabad, killing 14 people and injuring 59, including diplomats. A militant
Egyptian organization, el-Gamaa el-Islamiya (Islamic Group), claimed
The deadly attack was carried
out only months after Pakistan had signed an extradition treaty with Egypt under
which dozens of suspected terrorists were to be expelled.
al-Zawahiri - Egypt's 'most wanted' and al-Qaeda's
no. 2 - planned that attack in 1994, shortly after aligning himself
with Osama bin Laden.
