Israel does not rule out strike on Iran 08 May 2011 After the former Mossad chief described striking Iran as a "foolish idea," an Israeli security official says there is no solution but to attack Tehran if other options fail.

Abbottabad residents: Operation led by US military 'a complete hoax' - CCTV News video 04 May 2011 Reporter, Danial Khan: "Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has denied that Pakistan knew about Osama bin Laden's presence in the country. And those who live close to this compound say that Osama bin Laden was never in that house. [Pakistan eyewitness:] 'I have lived here all my life. I have never seen Osama bin Laden come or go from here. We are a close-knit community. At least we would have seen him once, but we did not. And even if he was killed, the Pakistani Army should have conducted this operation.' Surprisingly, even the members of the anti-terrorist squad couldn't confirm Bin Laden's killing.

Al-Qaeda compound facing the wrecker's ball

May 8, 2011 by legitgov

Al-Qaeda compound facing the wrecker's ball --Sources have told The Sunday Age that demolition of the concrete buildings and high perimeter wall is being considered to stop it becoming a shrine. 08 May 2011 Pakistani authorities are reported to be considering demolishing Osama bin Laden's hideout in the garrison town of Abbottabad to prevent it becoming a rallying point for extremists. While al-Qaeda has finally admitted bin Laden's death, many Pakistanis are sceptical about claims the al-Qaeda chief was killed in the raid and question the White House's decision not to release photos of his body. The US disposed of bin Laden's body at sea so his grave wouldn't become a shrine for extremists. But if the past few days are any guide, the al-Qaeda chief's house has pulling power. [Heads up! Crime scene is about to go bye-bye even quicker than when Rudy Giuliani recycled and shipped the steel (evidence) from the exploded WTC!]

The videos, seized from bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, gave the world a first glimpse into the al Qaida leader's private life behind his compound walls, and the image that emerged was of a man concerned both with his appearance and his portrayal by the media. Bin Laden holds a remote control in his right hand [he's left-handed] and flips between channels, at least one of which featured his picture with Arabic writing underneath.
