War on Terror: Obama wins over Osama, real masterminds still at large!

 Special Report

Osama bin Laden (1957 – 2011)
WASHINGTON — Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the most devastating attack on American soil in modern times and the most hunted man in the world, was killed in a firefight with United States forces in Pakistan on Sunday, President Obama announced.

In a dramatic late-night appearance in the East Room of the White House, Mr. Obama declared that “justice has been done” as he disclosed that American military and C.I.A. operatives had finally cornered Bin Laden, the Al Qaeda leader who had eluded them for nearly a decade. American officials said Bin Laden resisted and was shot in the head. He was later buried at sea.

The news touched off an extraordinary outpouring of emotion as crowds gathered outside the White House, in Times Square and at the Ground Zero site, waving American flags, cheering, shouting, laughing and chanting, “U.S.A., U.S.A.!” In New York City, crowds sang “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Throughout downtown Washington, drivers honked horns deep into the night.  (The New York Times)

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Monday confirmed the death of al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in an “intelligence-driven military operation” conducted by the US army, in the early hours at Abbottabad.

A statement from the Foreign Office said the most wanted terrorist mastermind was killed in an operation “conducted by the US forces in accordance with declared US policy that Osama bin Ladin will be eliminated in a direct action by the US forces, wherever found in the world.”

The Foreign Office termed it “a major setback to terrorist organizations around the world.” The statement said President Obama telephoned President Zardari on the successful US operation which resulted in killing of Osama bin Ladin.

Osama bin Ladin’s death illustrates the resolve of the international community including Pakistan to fight and eliminate terrorism.

The Foreign Office statement said al-Qaeda had declared war on Pakistan. Scores of Al-Qaeda sponsored terrorist attacks resulted in deaths of thousands of innocent Pakistani men, women and children.

Almost, 30,000 Pakistani civilians lost their lives in terrorist attacks in the last few years. More than 5,000 Pakistani security and armed forces officials have been martyred in Pakistan’s campaign against Al-Qaeda, other terrorist organizations and affiliates.

Pakistan has played a significant role in efforts to eliminate terrorism. “We have had extremely effective intelligence sharing arrangements with several intelligence agencies including that of the US. We will continue to support international efforts against terrorism.”

“It is Pakistan’s stated policy that it will not allow its soil to be used in terrorist attacks against any country. Pakistan’s political leadership, parliament, state institutions and the whole nation are fully united in their resolve to eliminate terrorism,” the statement said. (The News International)

  1. I am disappointed with this blog post. All you have done is to quote what others are saying without bothering to ponder over what has been said. It all sounds like a story worthy of Alice in Wonderland. On day 1 my take on this fantastic tale is given in my blog post here:

  2. The biggest terrorist country in the world is USA administrations of all times (please refer Noam Chomsky: The New War Against Terror; http://mitworld.mit.edu/video/98; http://www.counterpunch.org/chomskyterror.html; http://www.chomsky.info/talks/200202--02.htm), and their slaves in various countries as client head of the states. These are the members of biggest mafia headed by all US administrations that are worst killing machine in the world for their strategic interests (selfish material interests) especially of inhuman corporate coglomerates of the world that practically rules the world. Therefore deservingly the USA has been named as the biggest terrorist country in the world with its worldwide network of clients and agents.

    The US history did not started suddenly on 911. We all need to get out of this amnesia. The ordinary citizen of all the countries need to get their freedom from these blood thirsty corporate coglomerates.

    So, nothing has changed. One freedom fighter has met his ultimate goal of sacrificing his life for the mission that is dear to him, namely getting ordinary people, in this case the oppressed Muslims, free from clutches of blood thirsty US administrations with its monsterous hegemony.

    Now its a test of those who are alive. We, the people of the world should exterminate all these soul selling agents of aggressors, the ruling elites of US/EU & company, from their ranks namely political parties, bureaucracy, the govt, intelligent agencies, and the sold out elements of their military. Otherwise, freedom of each one of us would be just a mirage. May Allah (SWT) provide true freedom to every Pakistani and every individual of the world citizenry from these beasts.

  5. Bin Laden was the ‘Golden Goose’ that the army had kept under its watch but which, to its chagrin, has now been stolen from under its nose. Until then, the thinking had been to trade in the Goose at the right time for the right price, either in the form of dollars or political concessions.
