Tough guy hid behind missus

Most decent blokes will go down defending their missus. Not Osama bin Laden.

Osama bin Laden is said to have been hiding behind a woman, presumed to be his wife, when US forces raided his compound, US officials have revealed.

The head of US counter-terrorism John Brennan has a told a White House media briefing the way Osama was killed will harm his image among supporters, Britain’sThe Telegraph reported.

“Living in this million dollar plus compound, in an area that is far away from the front, hiding behind a woman: it really speaks to just how false his narrative has been over the years,” he said.

Mr Brennan said a woman, “presumed to be bin Laden’s wife” was “positioned in a way that indicated that she was being used as a human shield, whether bin Laden or his son put her there, or she put herself there”.

What a coward. hiding behind the skirts of a woman. Sniveling coward is perhaps more apt.

They should have put his head on a pike and fed his body to the pigs. Unfortunately the Americans gave him a decent burial.

The body was photographed before being buried at sea, although no images have been released by the Obama administration.

The US official who disclosed the burial at sea said it was not possible to find a country willing to accept the remains. Pressed by reporters to say which countries had been contacted about taking the remains, the official said, “I’m not going into details of those conversations.”

Obama said the remains had been handled in accordance with Islamic custom, which requires speedy burial.

An official at yesterday’s Pentagon briefing said the body, once aboard the USS Carl Vinson, was washed and placed in a white sheet. It was then placed in a “weighted bag,” and a military officer read prepared “religious remarks,” which were translated into Arabic by a “native speaker” who was not further identified.

The body was then placed on a “prepared flat board, tipped up, whereupon the deceased’s body eased into the sea,” the official said.

I hope those religious remarks were “Go to Hell”

    All I want to know is why they didn’t cut his hair and put it on e-bay or Trade Me? and then donate the money to fuel vouchers for us all, since his actions some would say raised our fuel prices? Is he even dead? Can we believe anything the Americans say?????

  • monty

    but the irony is that his rotting corpse will be food for the pigs of the ocean, (Crabs, sea lice, worms) still pigs – but of the sea.

    Nice that the Greenies have come out and scorned the death of this lowlife.

  • cadwallader

    He’d have more than wife I expect, mind you they could all well look more like a bloke than he did! It adds to the adage that most bullies are cowards.

  • titanuranus

    The tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy brigade is in overdrive already.
    Personally I have irrefutable evidence that Osama was the guy on the grassy knoll and is now working at a mid Ohio walmart with Elvis and Marilyn.

    • thor42

      Yeah….. no surprise, seeing the tinfoil-hatters and pathetic “9/11 truthers” coming out of the woodwork.
      The US ***has said*** that it will “almost certainly release photos” – both of the body, and of the burial, IIRC.

      I have also seen a reference that **an al-Qaeda site itself** has described him as a “martyr”.
      They wouldn’t do that if he wasn’t dead, and if they weren’t **sure** that he was dead.

      The other test for the tinfoil-hatters(of course) is to see if we get any *more* Bin-Laden videos released, mentioning the “killing” (they would put it in quotes) and scorning the US.
      If he *were* still alive, he would definitely now release a video to prove it.

      Oh, and yes – I’m aware that videos can be faked. Anyway, let’s see what happens in the next few days – let’s see if the US releases photos and a video.

  • hawkes

    And you just uncritically swallow what the victor says about a hated foe? I don’t like Bin Laden any better than you do, but I thought you were smarter than that.

    • titanuranus

      If you have evidence to the contrary perhaps you could present it?
      Unless they yanks are doing this just to fool you ,but they can`t fool you,cos` you are obviously way too clever.

  • johnqpublic

    Since when did the freakin’ “conspiracy theory” become the default belief in such situations? What advantage is there in the US fabricating his death? I mean really, the simplest explanation is usually the right one. They got him, move on.

    • thor42

      I agree! It’s amazing, seeing how widespread “conspiracy theorists” are these days.

      A few months back, I took a taxi-ride and the driver was one of these “9/11 truthers”, doubting that al-Qaeda did the terrorist attacks. I was ***furious*** – if there is one thing I can’t stand, it is ***wilful fucking ignorance.***
      So, I absolutely ***hammered*** him in a debate during my ride. I mentioned the website which has debunked every one of the so-called conspiracies about Sep 11 – this one here –

      It just seems that there are some things (like Sep 11) that some dickheads out there find so overwhelming that they feel that they have to find a conspiracy in it. Yes, Sep 11 was bloody awful, but these dickheads ***do not understand*** that ***Islam teaches Muslims to fucking HATE us.***
      We do **not** have to do anything “wrong” in order for them to hate us. Being non-Muslim (infidel) is enough.
      I will tell you now that my knowledge of Islam is excellent. Ok, I don’t know every chapter and verse of the Quran, but I am familiar with **many** of them. I am also very familiar with how Muslims operate, and how they **deceive** people.
      The most common way is for a Muslim to quote a “sweet-sounding” verse from the Koran.
      Many Westerners will simply be taken-in by this. However – what the Muslim will NOT tell you (and he will lie if you ask) is that the verse he quoted to you has almost certainly been “abrogated” (made obsolete), so it is no longer “in force”.
      If you go through the Quran through time, the “innocent” verses tend to appear earlier (when Mohammad had very little power), and the really evil verses tend to appear later. If two verses conflict in some way (and this is quite common), the **later verse** (which is almost always really evil) **always** abrogates the earlier one.
      See what I mean?
      This site is excellent if you want further infor on that – WikiIslam –
      1500+ critical articles on Islam, based on its own sources.

        Fuckin`A Thor,spot on.

        Whale ,any chance we can get the thumbs back?

        • thor42

          Thanks, titanuranus! :)

          The other thing I wanted to mention is that in Islam, ***lying*** is not only allowed – it is **encouraged.**
          This is called “taqiyya” (pronounced “tacky-yuh”)

          This page has a really good article on that –

          Quote – highlight added by me –
          “Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur’an and Sunna, including ****lying under oath in testimony before a court****, deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a “religion of peace”. A Muslim is even permitted to deny or denounce his faith if, in so doing, he protects or furthers the interests of Islam, so long as he remains faithful to Islam in his heart.”

            While I’m here, I might as well pop these links up.
            These are **outstanding** sites which will give you the TRUTH about Islam, and it is not pretty.
            Btw – these sites contain *many* links to other sites too, which also give a critical (and *truthful*) view of Islam.

   – Founded by the legendary Robert Spencer – a long-time critic of (and expert on) Islam.

   – Founded by apostates from Islam

   – Atlas Shrugs – by Pamela Geller – another long-time critic of Islam

            and the most hard-hitting and un-PC of all……
   – The Jawa Report

    I was referring to the comment about him hiding behind his wife, which has apparently since been debunked.

  • thor42

    Oops… forgot to add this site to my previous post. This is a **really good** site. Just found it a few days ago.
    It is one of the best sites for anyone who has no knowledge of Islam –

    I recommend you start with this page – this gives a really good backgrounder on Muhammad –
