Al-Qaeda confirms bin Laden death

Terrorist group vows to avenge leader’s death


 

Al-Qaeda released a statement Friday confirming the death of Osama bin Laden, five days after U.S. President Barack Obama announced that Navy SEAL commandos had found and shot bin Laden in a raid on his Abbottabad compound. The Islamist militant group referred to their former leader as a martyr and vowed revenge on the U.S. and its allies, including Pakistan.

Al-Qaeda confirms bin Laden death

  1. The success of an operation like the assassination of Osama bin Ladin can best be judged by the severity of the response it provokes. In typical vitriolic fashion, the dogs of Al-Qaida howl for vengeance for their slain Master, threatening not only the United States and its allies, but its gracious host, Pakistan, as well.

    It ain't over till it's over, but for Osama bin Ladin, it's over. That will have to be enough for now.

  2. According to all the experts, Al Qaeda is a spent force. I truly hope they are right. This last decade has not been an easy one. As though flying wasn't a miserable enough experience pre-9/11.

  3. Message to all Western governments:
    Stop endangering your people by permitting mass immigration! We don't need to turn Canada, America or Europe into the next Afghanistan. It's great that Bin Laden's dead but his sick ideology is still alive and its fanatical followers have already infiltrated the West thanks to immigration. Are we waiting for these creeps to impose Shariah law on us? Why are the dangers of mass immigration always ignored except on specialized websites like vdare.com, jihadwatch.org or immigrationwatchcanada.org?

    • I'm black and I agree with you.

      The disclaimer was just in case people started howling "racism."

  4. Wow. While I dislike the initial lies that were circulating about how the killing took place, (40-minute shootout, Osama using a wife as a human shield? Gimme a friggin' break), I also dislike the apologists like, apparently, the CBC. There was nothing remotely dignified about the way that monster lived his life and if dignity eluded his death, well then it's rightfully so.
