Osama's Posthumous Reprisals

Updated on May 6, 2011


Late Sunday evening on May 1, 2011 after President Barack Obama announced on national television the death of Osama bin Laden a large crowd had gathered outside the White House jubilantly chanting “USA USA.” Even on New York Times Square people were celebrating the demise of one of the most hated villains in human history. We can all understand the American people's overwhelming exuberance over the great closure of this national tragedy, but it does not end the hatred for our country among the Islamic radicals in the world. It only adds fuel to the fire of the chain of command that is still functioning in the world of terrorism today.

Americans celebrate the Death of Osama bin Laden

President Obama and the Islamic World

Many Americans have harsh words and criticism for President Obama's handling of Osama bin Laden's posthumous events such as the burial at sea and withholding the release of the fallen villain's photographs. Although I do not agree with Obama's policies on abortion and same-sex marriage, but I do commend him for respecting the dead even though he is the enemy. Obama might have made those decisions out of fear that Islamic people in America and all over the world will not support him if he did otherwise.

Obama has a personal struggle to kill a Muslim

Muslims have difficulty killing another Muslim

Obama knows more about Islam than any other U.S. president in history. He was born a Muslim with a Muslim name. His father, grandfather and everyone in his father's family are Muslim's. Even after his parents were divorced his mother, who was an atheist, married an Indonesian Muslim, and the family moved to Indonesia which is a Muslim country. A large percentage of Americans believe that Barack Hussein Obama is still a Muslim at heart, not openly but in secret, but definitely has great leanings towards Islam.

President Obama has repeated the slogan “America will never be at war with Islam.” But radical Islam is constantly at war with America!

The "Mansion" where Osama bin Laden was killed

It is NOT a "Gutsy Call" and not a "MISSION IMPOSSIBLE" after all

Sending the Navy SEALs on that mission to kill Osama bin Laden without prior consulation with the Pakistani authorities is not such a “gutsy call” by the president as John Brennan, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, described it.

It was the obvious thing and only thing to do because the Pakistanis could not be trusted not to tip Osama and let him escape. When the American intelligence knew that Osama bin Laden was holed up in that “mansion” which is so close to the military academy it would be very difficult for the Pakistani authorities to explain why and how they did not know he was there all the time. Recent interrogations with one of Osama bin Laden's wives reveal that they had been living in that same building for six years.

Also, it was not a “Mission Impossible” for the Navy SEALs after all, because there were no bodyguards, no heavy firearms and no booby traps against unwanted intruders. The main occupants in that building consisted of unarmed men who are civilians, women and children. There was very little or no resistance for the Americans to face; which made the mission very easy to accomplish.

It is highly probable that the Pakistani armed forces did not want to engage in combat with the American elite forces, and the local forces had waited for the Americans to leave before they arrived. The Navy SEALs had been in the compound for forty minutes. If there was an actual firefight between the Pakistanis and the Americans it would really complicate matters especially when there are fatal casualties. It would appear that Pakistan was protecting Osama bin Laden from the Americans.

There will be Reprisals

Al Qaeda's largest anti-American rally took place in the town of Khuchlak in southwestern Baluchistan province, where about 500 people attended.

"America is celebrating Osama bin Laden's killing, but it will be a temporary celebration," said Abdullah Sittar Chishti, a member of the Jamiat Ulema Islam party who attended the rally in Khuchlak. "After the martyrdom of Osama, billions, trillions of Osamas will be born."

The terror network admitted today that U.S. forces had tracked and killed their leader, but they have vowed to keep on attacking America.

The statement by al Qaeda was released on the Internet and should end any doubts that the terror mastermind is dead, despite President Obama's Islamic funeral rite at sea and his refusal to release gruesome photos showing bin Laden's body with a bullet hole in his head.

Al Qaeda Vows to take Vengeance on America

Al Qaeda said bin Laden's blood "will not be wasted" and Americans' "happiness will turn to sadness." The group pledged to continue attacking America and its allies.

"We stress that the blood of the holy warrior sheik, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is precious to us and to all Muslims and will not go in vain," the 11 paragraph statement reads. "We will remain, God willing, a curse chasing the Americans and their agents, following them outside and inside their countries."

The statement, dated May 3 and signed by "the general leadership" of al Qaeda, also incited Pakistanis to violence, telling them to rise up in revolt against their leaders.

Will America have to find and Kill Al Qaeda's New Leader ?

Al Qaeda's statement opens the path for a new leader of the terrorist group to be named. Bin Laden's deputy and the group's possible new leader is Ayman al-Zawahiri.

America may have to face a More Dangerous Enemy than Osama bin Laden

Bin Laden, killed in a raid by Navy SEALs on Sunday, had long thought to have been more of a figure head in the organization over the last few years with the daily planning of the group's attacks handled by Zawahiri. However, the trove of computers, documents and thumb drives retrieved in the raid revealed that the man who planned the 9/11 attacks was still actively pursuing attacks against the United States.

One U.S. source told ABC News that bin Laden kept almost a playbook of al Qaeda activities. The files include possible targets within the United States and a fixation on dates and anniversaries, the source said. One possible terror plot included targeting U.S. rail systems on the tenth anniversary of Sept. 11.

The group hinted at the release of a bin Laden audio tape that they claim was made the week before he died.

      I think that God will always protect a nation that is faithful to Him and I think that is truly at the root of it all. The politics are all swirling around the behind the scenes spiritual events.

      No way, it's just another false flag to make Obama look good. Some US citizens are stil gullible to our Gov. tricks. Osama died some where around in 9-11-2001 in a Pakistani Hospital from a fatal Kidney diease. His body was kept on ice until now. It's all a farce. If you believe Obama and company, you will believe the moon is made out of green cheese. Check out Alex Jones and the comments made by Jeff Piecznek. Go to either or . Honestly, you should check things out and prove all things.

      If there is any kick back it will not be from the Moslems but the Anglo-American supported Al Qaeda to put fear into the unwary American people. It's an inside job just like 911 was by our own crooket leaders. They can't even keep their story straight. Now they are saying there was no fire fight. And why dump his body at sea? Just like a Mafia hit, hide the body and after you murder some one that they say was Osama. Liars, liars, liars there pants are on fire.

      This is so perplexing to me. If we just acted instead of showing our hand, proving weak to the enemy, giving way instead of standing ground, I think the problem would shrink as well. This has mushroomed since President Obama has been our leader. All of the careful stepping has cost far more lives than just being honest and tough on people that declare themselves our enemies. Great hub, imformative and thought provoking.
