ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan (Sputnik) - Almost 11 years since Osama bin Laden, leader of al-Qaeda*, was killed in the Operation Neptune Spear, eyewitnesses and Pakistani journalists that investigated the events told Sputnik they still doubt whether the whole raid was staged as there is no confirmation bin Laden was at the compound that day.

One of the Pakistani journalists who covered the operation on the ground, Suhail Abbasi, told Sputnik that he believes what happened in Abbottabad in May 2011 was nothing more than a performance to save Washington's face in front of the global community and American citizens.

"We are all sure that bin Laden was not in the building. But his family had definitely lived in the area for several years," one of the eyewitnesses, Raja Harun, told Sputnik.

Harun observed the entire operation as it was unfolding, up to when the Pakistani government released a statement called the Abbottabad Commission. He lived a few feet from the building where bin Laden was allegedly located. At first, there were no follow-up reports or other evidence that someone had died in the US raid, Harun noted. "Only later we, same as everyone else in the world, were surprised by the reports in the American and Western media that Osama bin Laden had been killed in our city. Then journalists, both local and foreign, began to arrive. This was followed by statements and congratulations from [then US President Barack] Obama on the killing of the head of the most dangerous terrorist organization in the world. The fact that his body was thrown into the sea is just stupid and ridiculous," Harun said. Operation Neptune Spear was the code name of the US operation to eliminate the leader and founder of al-Qaeda. Since late 1990s, bin Laden was hiding in Afghanistan with the support from the Taliban*, which ruled parts of the country. After the 11 September 2001 terror attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon building in Washington, which claimed lives of over 3,000 Americans, the United States demanded the extradition of bin Laden from Afghanistan. The Taliban's refusal to extradite the terrorist prompted the nearly 20-year-long US military intervention in the country. However, bin Laden managed to escape arrest after the Taliban regime in Afghanistan was overthrown by the US and its allies. For several years, the al-Qaeda leader continued to be politically active, constantly appeared on the TV and made new threats, while his location remained unknown. In 2010, the CIA tracked down bin Laden's courier who was visiting his alleged compound in the city of Abbottabad in Pakistan. The operation to kill the al-Qaeda leader commenced on 1 May, 2011, from Afghanistan, after months of surveillance and training the special forces to raid a copy of bin Laden's compound. The terrorist's body was transported to the base in Afghanistan's Jalalabad. There, the body was photographed and the day after, the DNA analysis confirmed that it was bin Laden. Afterwards, the body was taken to the USS Carl Vinson carrier in the Arabian Sea and dropped into the sea "in accordance with Muslim customs" before any independent party could confirm bin Laden's death.On 6 May, al-Qaeda confirmed that their leader was dead.

OBL died 20(?) December 2001 and was buried in a hidden place as per his beliefs.

I was of the mind that the whole thing was faked as at the time Obama’s Approval was tanking hard. I also believed that the Spec Ops that were killed in that subsequent helicopter “accident” were incentive for the other guys to keep the lie going.

I don’t know what happened to OBL, and the only people who actually do are those who were close to him. In my mind, the whole thing was a fabrication from the beginning when he was just a guy named Tim Osman.

These alternative scenarios come from reasonable conclusions that can be gathered from a number of news reports that lock together much more tightly that the wild stories told in the "mainstream."

The conventional apologists need to stitch their tales up with whoppers like the "Islamic burial at sea" for the lonesome remains of Osama bin Ladin.

There is no such custom in Islam, and Wahabis, Salafists or whatever you call them generally bury in unmarked graves in the dirt. Sometimes a small monument is permitted, so many inches high - no more. The aircraft burial story just shows how desperate the PTB are to cover shit up. Reminds you of the JFK Jr. burial that was also held at sea off a carrier deck although that man had virtually nothing to do with the naval service.

They think we're stupid. And all in all, I think they're right.

Mad Maddy said that the "hunting bin Laden" lie would be kept alive as long as it was useful.

Buckwheat finally decided to use it, kill Seal Team 6, and look like a hero to the really, really, weak-minded and uninformed.
