Osama Bin Laden
Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden his full name was. The founder of al-Qaeda the organization that takes the responsibility of 9-11 attack on New York and several other armed violence s. He was a Saudi Arabian and an ethnic Yemeni Kindite. He was born to a billionaire father Mohammed Awad Laden in Saudi and studies in the country's universtiy. In 1998 he formed the al-Qaeda. Bin Laden was on the FBI's list of Ten Most Wanted Fugitives for his involvement in 1998 US Embassy Bombings.
He was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on 10th March 1957.According to Wright, the group's real name was not used in public pronouncements because "its existence was still a closely held secret". His research suggests that al-Qaeda was formed at an August 11, 1988, meeting between "several senior leaders" of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, Abdullah Azzam, and bin Laden, where it was agreed to join bin Laden's money with the expertise of the Islamic Jihad organization and take up the jihadist cause elsewhere after the Soviets withdrew from Afghanistan.
"God knows it did not cross our minds to attack the Towers, but after the situation became unbearable—and we witnessed the injustice and tyranny of the American-Israeli alliance against our people in Palestine and Lebanon—I thought about it. And the events that affected me directly were that of 1982 and the events that followed—when America allowed the Israelis to invade Lebanon, helped by the U.S. Sixth Fleet. As I watched the destroyed towers in Lebanon, it occurred to me punish the unjust the same way: to destroy towers in America so it could taste some of what we are tasting and to stop killing our children and women."
— Osama bin Laden, 2004
After his initial denial, Osama bin Laden in 2004 finally claimed responsibility for the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States.The attacks involved the hijacking of four commercial passenger aircraft – United Airlines Flight 93, United Airlines Flight 175, American Airlines Flight 11, and American Airlines Flight 77 – and flying two into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, and the third into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, destroying the former, and severely damaging the latter, while the fourth, either intended to target the U.S. Capitol or the White House in Washington, D.C.,crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, with no survivors. A total of 2,996 people died in the attacks, including 2,192 civilians, 71 law enforcement officers, and 343 firefighters who were in the World Trade Center and in the surrounding area; 70 civilians and 55 military personnel who were in the Pentagon; and 245 civilians, a law enforcement officer, and the nineteen hijackers aboard the four airliners. In response to the attacks, the United States launched the War on Terror to depose the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and capture al-Qaeda operatives, and several countries strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation to preclude future attacks. The CIA's Special Activities Division was given the lead in tracking down and killing or capturing bin Laden. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has stated that classified evidence linking al-Qaeda and bin Laden to the September 11 attacks is clear and irrefutable. The UK Government reached a similar conclusion regarding al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden's culpability for the September 11 attacks, although the government report noted that the evidence presented is not necessarily sufficient to prosecute the case.
The operation, code-named Operation Neptune Spear, was ordered by United States President Barack Obama and carried out in a U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operation by a team of United States Navy SEALs from the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (also known as DEVGRU or informally by its former name, SEAL Team Six) of the Joint Special Operations Command, with support from CIA operatives on the ground. The raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad was launched from Afghanistan. After the raid, reports at the time stated that U.S. forces had taken bin Laden's body to Afghanistan for identification, then buried it at sea within 24 hours of his death.
You know I have a post on my blog appreciating Adolf Hitler. But I don't find any peice or drop of good in Osama Bin Laden. He was a terrorist. A down-right terrorist. He is the one who defines the word terrorism. The one who makes the world hate the whole of Islam. The one who carried blood of many while he sinks in the deepest of ocean. How can a person so disgusting. I wonder was an easy death a real punishment to him? Why is it that thousands of innocent people were tortured horrifyingly in the Guantanamo Bay but the real culprit offered such a death. Why was Saddam Hussein publicly executed while he gets away with some bullets. Even Colonel Gaddafi had a severe death although his deeds weren't as inhumane. But I don't know why deep inside I always have this gut feeling that he isn't just yet dead. That he is still at large.The world isn't a fair place. Lets pray the hell is.
