Pictures Of bin Laden's Hideout Released

Tyler Durden's picture




 

From MSNBC.com:
"Jonathan Woods writes: Many images from the compound reported to be
the hideout of Osama bin Laden have surfaced. In addition to images of
the compound, photos of portions of a helicopter have also been made
available to us."

A
crashed military helicopter is seen near the hideout of Al-Qaeda leader
Osama bin Laden after a ground operation by US Special Forces in
Abbottabad on May 2.

Bill Dedman, investigative reporter for msnbc.com, reports that the
operation Sunday went smoothly except for a mechanical problem with a
U.S. helicopter, which was destroyed to protect intelligence
information, senior officials said. Read: How the US tracked bin Laden.

Looks like Tyler is experiencing server glitches again. This thread disappeared only to be resurrected without the comments.

Some kind of inter-dimensional conflict in the space-time continuum...I think. Check the transporter buffer circuits for the missing comments.

ABC news has photos of inside the luxurious 'mansion'. You could have fooled me....looks like a Detroit crack house.

I did appreciate the majestic mountain views.  Hopefully, the maid service will be coming by sooner than later to tidy up...

Was the appraiser who valued the compound at $1 million properly licensed with the Pakistan Department of Real Estate?

 

I want to see the Long Form Appraisers License, please.

"Osama doesn't live here anymore."

"I'm not here. Look somewhere else."

"You're getting warmer..."

"Gone fishing."

That POS is supposed to be worth $1MM?  Our psy-ops program should have worked overtime on this.  But, good to know our propaganda machine is still functioning....

Interesting how that helicopter is "destroyed"... by laying it over a wall...

And that can only be half of it. No way those sheets are hiding the whole thing, even if they did plant charges.  And I'm betting some Pakistani housewife is pissed they took her good sheets...

The whole OBL story is so full of nonsense, it hurts a person with common sense.

 

1) They have positive DNA faster than anybody else can

2) They get rid of the body so nobody else can examine it

3) They actually give him Islamic rites? Hello, am I high on crack or something?

4) They dead guy does not look like OBL at all! Just look at the nose.

5) CNBC kept saying he lived in a "luxury compound". Are those people blind, stupid or both?

etc etc etc

4)  The pictures are fake.  They've been circulating on the Internet for over two years.

Everything else, I agree. 

3)  We spend 10 years to find Islamic extremist/terrorist #1.  Why worry about retaliatory strikes against us for failing to give proper burial rites?  We know we're going to get hit anyway.  If the concern is for peaceful Muslims to be upset for improper burial rites, then the "peaceful" don't recognize OBL extremist views.  Either way, who flippin' cares except for OBL supporters?

You don't think an organization that can throw away helicopters that don't work any more can't run some speedy DNA?


2) They get rid of the body so nobody else can examine it

What's to examine?  I'll be Osama doesn't make any more public appearances.


3) They actually give him Islamic rites? Hello, am I high on crack or something?

Come on, they have to say that to keep the touchy feely types at bay.

 

4) They dead guy does not look like OBL at all! Just look at the nose.

They shot him in the face.  Repeatedly.  A bullet from an M4 is going almost 3,000 feet per second when it leaves the muzzle, which was just a nanosecond before it entered his face.  Upon entry, the bullet fragments.  I'm suprised he even has a head.  Often, peoples faces look a lot like canoes when that happens.

 

5) CNBC kept saying he lived in a "luxury compound". Are those people blind, stupid or both?

You obviously haven't been to any non-oil producing middle eastern countries.  That IS a luxury hide out.

 

Looks like the tail of an MH-60 to me, but I'm not an airplane guy.

OK, Mister Know All,

I have actually bin to the mid east several times, and no, that compound is not luxury by any standard. Yes, donkey herders and peasants live worse, but thats not the point.
