Osama Bin Laden

Osama bin Laden, hunted as the mastermind behind the World Trade Center attacks, is dead according to several media sources. Details on how and where the murderer was killed were not available, but sources said U.S. forces have the body and DNA testing confirmed that it was indeed bin Laden.

Bin Laden went from being the spoiled son of a Saudi billionaire, to a terrorist leader and the most wanted man in the world, and in history.

Bin Laden created and funded the killer al Qaeda terror network, which was responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York City. Recently the Saudi exile has been on the run, since the United States invasion of Afghanistan, overthrowing the ruling Taliban regime, which gave safe harbor to bin Laden.

In a video filmed two months after the Sept. 11 attacks, bin Laden bragged about the attack, saying it had exceeded even his most "optimistic" calculations.

"Our terrorism is against America. Our terrorism is a blessed terrorism to prevent the unjust person from committing injustice and to stop American support for Israel, which kills our sons," he said in the video.

Bin Laden was known as an enemy of the United States way before the attack on the United States.. He was suspected of playing large roles in the 1998 bombings of two U.S. Embassies in Africa and the attack on the USS Cole in the Yemeni port of Aden in October 2000.

Authorities also say Bin Laden and his al Qaeda network were involved in previous attacks against United State interests, including the failed 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and plots to kill President Clinton and the Pope, as well as attacks on U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia and Somalia.

Bin Laden also used his big millions to bankroll terrorist training camps in Sudan, the Philippines and Afghanistan, sending "holy warriors" to foment revolution.

When one of his top al Qaeda lieutenants was caught in 2003, there had been no confirmed location of where he was.

In recent years, several audio recordings of bin Laden have been authenticated by U.S. officials and made public. In an 18-minute videotape weeks before the 2004 U.S. presidential election, bin Laden threatened fresh attacks on the United States as well as his intent to push America into bankruptcy.

Editors Note: It is beyond me that it took all these years and most likely a Trillion Dollars and there were no results. No matter what anyone says, this terrorist Bin Laden won. Look at how our world has changed, the airports, the buildings we live in and just about everywhere else in New York City. We have to deal with my Id's being scanned at all the major networks, radio stations and even in my building when I have guests. We are dealing with endless amounts of police in Times Square, The National Guard with Machine guns, and even snipers standing guard. We are like a police state here in New York City. No matter what anyone says, Osama Bin Laden won and we and the rest of the world were the losers. Sad that the world has become the way it is now. Sad.....
