The problem facing the Alex Jonesian "fake raid" theorists is the same problem facing Obama: The witnesses
Osama Bin Laden's daughter has claimed he was captured alive in his Pakistani hideout and then shot by U.S. special forces, it was reported today.
Arabic news network Al-Arabiya quoted 'senior Pakistani security officials' who said the 12-year-old saw her father executed and his body dragged to a helicopter.
I've seen the "captured alive" story in the British and Indian
press, but not in the American press. From the Times of India:
An Arabic television station went further, saying, "a source in Pakistani security quoted the daughter of Osama bin Laden that the leader of al-Qaida was not killed inside his house, but had been arrested and was killed later".
It seems that capture was never an option. This was an execution. I think that he was killed because, if tried, he would reveal the names of his former partners in the drug trade.
Think about it: If a Navy SEAL picked off Osama Bin Laden at a distance, thinking that Bin Laden was going for a weapon, that SEAL would be famous now. His name would be released. He'd be an insta-hero. But if a captured and helpless Osama were executed at point-blank range -- well, that's a different story.
The drug angle may also explain Pakistan's involvement in this. If they allowed Osama to reside in that military community, how could they have done so without knowledge of the Americans? Was Osama, in effect, under house arrest?
