As Pentagon Releases Details Of Osama Compound, Iran Claims bin Laden Killed Due To Risk Of Leaking Joint US-Al Qaeda Operations

Tyler Durden's picture

Minutes ago, the Pentagon released a 5 page powerpoint presentation showing exclusive details of the Abbottabad compound where bin Laden was supposedly killed (and where the PCR test to confirm he was in fact "he", took about 1/20th the time it usually takes in leading US Universities). And even as the Pentagon collects kudos from the population for spending hundreds of millions and taking ten years to eliminate a person who is now largely irrelevant tactically (if not symbolically), Fars News out of Iran proposes an alternative explanation of everything that happened on Sunday night: "The West was fully satisfied with bin Laden's performance during the
past years and today… it was obliged to kill him to prevent possible
leakage of the priceless intelligence that he had," member of the
parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Javad
Jahangirzadeh told FNA on Monday. Surely not something that the US public would want to hear...

From the Pentagon's just released powerpoint (full presentation here)

And here is Fars News with a radical counterexplanation of what really happened:

 TEHRAN (FNA)- The US has killed the Al-Qaeda leader, Osama Bin Laden, in a bid to prevent any possible leakage of intelligence and information about the US-Al-Qaeda joint terrorist operations, a senior Iranian legislator underscored on Monday.   

"The West was fully satisfied with bin Laden's performance during the past years and today… it was obliged to kill him to prevent possible leakage of the priceless intelligence that he had," member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Javad Jahangirzadeh told FNA on Monday.

He mentioned that the West seeks to rebuild its damaged face in the international community, and reiterated that Bin Laden's survival could endanger the interests of the western countries and disclose their past and future clandestine operations.

Jahangirzadeh warned the world countries that the West has hatched a new plot to find new pretexts for invading and occupying the Muslim countries.

Obama announced on Sunday that bin Laden was killed in a US operation in Pakistan.

Obama said he had directed helicopter-borne US armed forces to launch an attack against a heavily fortified compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan on Sunday acting on a lead that first emerged last August.

"A small team of Americans… killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body," Obama said.

Senior US officials said that in addition to bin Laden, three adult males died in the raid, two who were believed to be couriers for the Al-Qaeda leader, and one who was said to be one of his adult sons.

One woman who was being used as a human shield was also killed, the officials said.

Swarms of anti-Iran and clueless American 'patriots': 1, 2, 3... 

That Ben Laden worked some time in partnership with the CIA is a fact no serious person denies.

Can I be against both the Iran regime and whoever is backing the American one?

TheGreatPonzi's picture

Yes. I am not a fan of the current Iranian regime too, but I oppose the mass media fearmongering about this country. Ahmadinejad never said he wanted Israel wiped off the map, for example, and also condemned repeatidly atomic weapons as being haram

Can I hate Ahmad for just his mustache?

she could be killed next since they seem to be mopping it all up now - she does talk a little bit more than they would like

I just googled her. She looks Iranian to me - that's still a capitol crime, right?

As opposed to what?

"a mainstream media worshipper"

In that case I would much rather keep my objectivity and be called a "conspiracy theorist"... by definition a conspiracy theorist takes data point and fits them into a logical framework instead of just believing anything that the propaganda ministry feeds us.

 The same banks finance both sides of a conflict with the agreement that the winner pays for the losses of the loser. Reconstruction financing is made before the conflict so is who will be financed enough to win.

I just received the same info a couple of hours ago and more. usama renigged on part of an inside deal also. thus a greater reason for him being killed instead of captured.

OBL was a big time hate monger and hes dead... big deal... he got alot of people into a big mess and sent out audio books about how happy he was


that and the US empire is the best game in town... the world is crazy man, he had to know alot of people wanted him dead imean they guy loved brutality like a big boy

 Like Clint Eastwood in " Fist Full of Dollars " Osama played both sides for cash and fame. Worshiped by some hated by others. The real story will probably never be told.

ml8ml8's picture

Never be told?  Are you kidding me?  I'll bet CNBC's Originals is already producing "Terror, Inc.:  Inside Bin Laden's Money-Making Machine," a nicely packaged 60 minutes of salacious and highly factualized truthiness detailing the side businesses UBL ran to fund his far flung terror operations.

bull shit.

"anti-Iran"? Who is pro-Iran? I dont even think Iranians are pro Iran, partly because of the fact that the whole nation is bulit on absolute horse shit and lies.

"I have already said that we are not hostile to the United States. We are against the [U.S. Government] system, which makes other nations slaves of the United States, or forces them to mortgage their political and economic freedom. This system is totally in control of the American-Jews, whose first priority is Israel, not the United States. It is clear that the American people are themselves the slaves of the Jews and are forced to live according to the principles and laws laid by them. So, the punishment should reach Israel. In fact, it is Israel, which is giving a blood bath to innocent Muslims and the U.S. is not uttering a single word...

...In fact, the Western media is left with nothing else. It has no other theme to survive for a long time. Then we have many other things to do. The struggle for jehad and the successes are for the sake of Allah and not to annoy His bondsmen. Our silence is our real propaganda. Rejections, explanations, or corrigendum only waste your time and through them, the enemy wants you to engage in things which are not of use to you. These things are pulling you away from your cause. The Western media is unleashing such a baseless propaganda, which makes us surprise but it reflects on what is in their hearts and gradually they themselves become captive of this propaganda. They become afraid of it and begin to cause harm to themselves. Terror is the most dreaded weapon in modern age and the Western media is mercilessly using it against its own people. It can add fear and helplessness in the psyche of the people of Europe and the United States. It means that what the enemies of the United States cannot do, its media is doing that. You can understand as to what will be the performance of the nation in a war, which suffers from fear and helplessness." -Usama Bin Laden 2002


This guy could have been a ZH commenter with that insight...and that was 9 years ago he recognized this.

it does not follow that helping Osama fight the Russians in Afghanistan in the 1980s means the CIA also helps Osama fight the Americans in the 2000s

Wow! Now that the power-point is out, we can all rest easy.

Remember Powell's UN power-point and how to the point it was.

Glad the power-point jockeys have the world's nuts in their expert hands.

And: After murdering their finest asset, they then murdered Benazir Bhutto.

Now, what three lettered "agency of murderers" would have done that?

Everyone and anyone who has worked with the dark side better watch their backs as it appeasr they are thinning the herd. Those they consider expendable, untrustworthy or "outsiders" will likely be culled.

Well didn't Penetta get the nod to replace Gates?

So ex-CIA head will probably be our defense secretary.

I mean how open about it can they get?

Powerpoint...used by losers to get a sympathetic grade...from older technically illiterate teachers...since the 1990's.

Powerpoint makes it easier to see how far, exactly, was the location of the compound to his at-sea burial.

Ah, the typical magazine cartoon image of 'proof', like the cartoon pictures of mass, mobile biological weapons units of Iraq, that Colin Powell shamelessly plastered up at the UN while warning of the return of satan as justification to blast Iraq into the stone-age. TD, why do you even bother.

How would Bin Laden get this intelligence information and how did we know taht he had it? Sounds pretty ridiculous to me but I'm glad he is dead. However I do not feel any safer from terrorists. Bin laden is only one of hundreds of thousands of weeds that want to kill us.

Scared? It was a lucky strike.....or planned....either way...we had (still have, but different one) a dipshit who read the memo (or didin't) and did crap to stop it gets you scared?


A few buildings out of a few hundred million in America gets one scared?

When was the point where we were supposed to feel FEAR from the terrorists? 9/11? Any day since then? The answer to both is neither, but I can understand the first.

Two wars, and we find him in a 3rd country.  Thanks idiots.  Which way did he go....well obviously where we weren't.

There is no more 'war on terror'.  It was to get him, he's gone.  They burned that card, time to bring our troops home....this time though, we still send aid, unlike after soviet withdrawl. 

You know one side of the political aisle just shit their pants for 2012. 

But of course, whoever doesn't run on a Glass-Steagall platform isn't fit for office, no matter the party/movement, which is just about everyone including Lipton.
