Transcript of Hide & Seek Osama Style

there were attacks in Baghdad, Iraq which killed 155 people and injured at least 721 people.On January 14, 2009, a new audio recording purportedly by bin Laden posted on Islamist websites called for a new jihad over the Israeli offensive in Gaza and said the global financial crisis has exposed the waning influence of the United States in world affairs and that it will in turn weaken its ally Israel. The recording was accompanied by a still photo of Bin Laden superimposed over the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem Background Of Osama Name:Osama Bin Mohammed Bin Awad Bin Laden
Occupation:Terrorist
Birthdate:March 10th 1957
Death Date:May 2st 2011
Place Of Death:Abbottabad, Pakistan Osama Bin Laden was a son of a billionaire building tycoon Mahammed Bin Laden and was also one of 54 siblings. His father Mohammed died in a helicopter crash, so Osama inherited 80 million dollars from his father. Osama lost his father at 12 and a few years later married at 17 to a young relative, this would help protect Osama from corruption. Osama had his education, he had a degree in public administration from King Abdul Aziz university in Jeddah. In 1979 Osama went to Pakistan and used money and machinery from his own construction company to help the Mujahideen resistance in the Soviet war in Afghanistan. a journalist interviewed Osama. Osama said "I felt outraged that an injustice had been committed against the people of Afghanistan." From 1979 to 1989, the United States provided financial aid and weapons to the Mujahideen through Pakistan's ISI. Bin Laden met and built relations with Hamid Gul, who was a three star general in the Pakistani army and head of the ISI agency. Although the United States provided the money and weapons, the training of militant groups was entirely done by the Pakistani Armed Forces. Osama was quickly disappointed with what he believed was a corrupt Saudi government, and his frustration with the U.S. occupation of Saudi Arabia during the Persian Gulf War led to a growing rift between Osama and his country's leaders. Bin Laden spoke publicly against the Saudi government's reliance on American troops, believing their presence profaned sacred soil. After several attempts to silence Osama, the Saudis banished the former hero. He lived in exile in Sudan beginning in 1992 . in 1993, Osama had formed a secret network known as al Qaeda (Arabic for "the Base"), comprised of militant Muslims he had met while serving in Afghanistan.Under Osama's leadership, the group funded and began organizing global attacks worldwide. the Saudi government forced Osama to relinquish his Saudi citizenship, and cut off his $7 million yearly stipend. Osama was so upset he began planning his violent plans with the goal of drawing the United States into war. In 1996 al Qaeda detonated truck bombs against U.S. occupied forces in Saudi Arabia. The next year they claimed responsibility for killing tourists in Egypt and in 1998 they bombed the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Tanzania, killing nearly 300 people in the process. Osamas actions got himself exiled from their country in 1996. osama went to afghanistan, where he received protection from the country's ruling Taliban. While under the protection of the Taliban, Osama issued a series of religious statements, which declared a holy war against the United States. Among the offending country were the pillaging of natural resources in the Muslim world. In 2001 Osama had attempted, and often successfully executed attacks on several countries using the help of Al Qaeda trained terrorists and his seemingly bottomless financial resources. Get to Know Osama Personally Get to know Osama Personally Osama Personal Life Wrap-up The War on Terror September 11th, 2001 2001 2001 Post 9/11
Response to Terrorism Battle of Tora Bora 2001 2004 Al-qaeda and Iraq attacks 2005 The War continues 2006 A Series of four attacks launched on September 11th would shock America forever. Four passenger airliners where Hijacked by 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists, so that they could be flow into buildings as Terrorist Attacks against the U.S. on U.S. soil. After 9/11 the United State establish the Department of Homeland Security in response to the attacks. The department of Home Securities duty's include, protecting the territory of the United States from terrorist and responding to natural disasters. The battle of Tora Bora was a military dispute in Afghan from December 12Th to December 17th, 2001 during the opening stages of the war in Afghanistan 9/11 damaged many americans and was the start of many wars The US government increased military operations, economic measures and political pressure on groups it accused of being terrorists, as well as on governments and countries accused of sheltering them. On October 2001 the first military action initiated by the US. Under this policy, the US invaded Afghanistan in order to remove the Taliban regime (which harbored al-Qaeda) and to capture al-Qaeda forces. 2001 The United States and it's allies believed that Osama Bin Laden the leader of top-tier terrorist organization Al-Qaeda was hiding in the mountains of Tora Bora. Allied forces pushed back the Taliban and Al-Qaeda forces, and heard Osama's voice in various radio transmissions that had been intercepted.

In these mountains Osama had a complex cave system that housed up to 1,000 in Tora Bora. U.S. forces never came to the strict conclusion that Osama was held in these mountains, but had leaders that he was hiding in the mountains of Tora Bora. americans wanted answers they where still in aw and wondering who had done this to our country, Suspicion quickly fell on al-Qaeda. Although the group's leader, Osama bin Laden, initially denied any involvement, in 2004 he claimed responsibility for the attacks.The FBI investigation into the attacks, codenamed operation PENTTBOM, was able to identify the 19 hijackers within days, as they made little effort to conceal their names on flight, credit card, and other records. By checking flight manifests and comparing them with other information, like watch lists, customs officials were able to quickly find the names of all 19 hijackers. For several months after the 9/11 attacks, no one, nor any group, claimed responsibility for the attacks, so the primary responsibility fell solely upon the hijackers, all of whom were killed and all of whom left no message or any claim of responsibility behind at explaining why they had carried the attacks out. As the media covered the 9/11 attacks unfolding, many quickly speculated that Osama bin Laden was behind the attacks Authorities in the United States and Britain also obtained electronic intercepts, including telephone conversations and electronic bank transfers, which indicate that Mohammed Atef, a bin Laden deputy, was a key figure in the planning of the 9/11 attacks. The investigators were quickly able to link the 19 men to the terrorist organization al-Qaeda, also by accessing material in their intelligence agency files. Based on the evidence, authorities in the United States quickly asserted that Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda organization were solely responsible for the attacks, and other suspects were ruled out. The Government of the United Kingdom reached the same conclusion. Although he denied the attacks at first, Osama bin Laden had since claimed full responsibility. this started the war in afganistan. 2007 2008 2009 2010 Our members of Al-Qaeda, three of British Pakistani descent and one of British Jamaican descent attacked London's public transport on July 7, 2005. Three bombs were detonated on the London Underground and one on a double decker bus. The attacks took place between 8.50 am and 9.47 am. 56 people died during the attacks (including 4 terrorists) and around 700 were injured. The attack occurred the day after the city was selected to host the 2012 Summer Olympics.The 2005 Musayyib bombing was a suicide attack on a marketplace in Musayyib, Iraq, a town 35 miles south of Baghdad on July 16, 2005.The 14 September 2005 Baghdad bombings were a series of more than a dozen terrorist attacks in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.2005 Khanaqin bombings were suicide attacks on two Shia mosques in Khanaqin, Iraq. Terrorist Tapes In 2006 Osama announced "I am the one in charge of the nineteen, I was responsible for entrusting the 19 brothers with the raids". In these videos Osama was seen with 3 of the hijackers from 9/11 while they were in preparation for the attack. Also in these tapes were reasons for the terrorist attacks, the main one being the United States support for Israel. Courier Connection Enter Seal Team Six, Operation Neptune Spear Seal Team Six
Bin Laden chastised followers who had reinterpreted al-tatarrus — an Islamic doctrine meant to excuse the unintended killing of non-combatants in unusual circumstances – to justify routine massacres of Muslim civilians which had turned Muslims against the jihadi movement. Of the groups affiliated with al-Qaida, Bin Laden condemned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan for an attack on members of a hostile tribe, declaring that "the operation is not justified, as there were casualties of noncombatants." Bin Laden wrote that the tatarrus doctrine "needs to be revisited based on the modern-day context and clear boundaries established." He asked a subordinate to draw up a jihadist code of conduct that would constrain military operations in order to avoid civilian casualties. In Yemen, Bin Laden urged his allies to seek a "truce" that would bring the country "stability" or would at least "show the people that we are careful in keeping … the Muslims safe on the basis of peace. Bush Administration After the 9/11 attacks the Bush Administration almost immediately named Bin Laden and the Al-Queda organization the Prime suspect, and offered a reward of 25 million dollars for information leading to his capture or death. In 2007 they raised the reward to 50 million. August 14-17, 2007- US and Afghanistan forces raided a cave where Al-Qaeda members were holding a pre romadon meeting. After killing dozens of Al-Queda members, Bin Laden was not found. The Obama Administration The Hunt for America's most wanted Terrorist On October 7th, 2008, Obama pledged that "We will kill Osama Bin Laden. We will Crush Al-Queda." Upon being elected, Obama planned to renew US commitment to finding Al-Queda leader Osama Bin Laden. Obama rejected the Bush Administrations policy on Bin Laden that conflated all terror threats from Al-Queda to Hamas Hezbollah, replacing it with a covert laser like focus on Al-Queda and its spawn. Locating Bin Laden Information unearthed in 2002 gave possible leads to the location where Osama was found in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The United States; specifically John McCain said that the United states did not torture to get confirmation that there was a alias that the Courier had used. Al-Qaeda's couriers where interrogated by the CIA. Osama Bin Laden did not communicate through phone, mostly because back in 1998 when the U.S. sent missiles to his bases. Osama's Compound The CIA used surveillance photos and intelligence reports to determine the identities of the inhabitants of the Abbottabad compound to which the courier was traveling. In September 2010, the CIA concluded that the compound was custom-built to hide someone of significance, very likely bin Laden.


Built in 2004 the three story house was found on google maps, although it did not show up in 2001, but was built when it was time to take new images in 2005. The compound had no internet service, and the residence of the compound burnt their trash. “ ...a severe and fierce bombardment began...not one second passed without warplanes hovering over our heads...[America] exhausted all efforts to blow up and annihilate this tiny spot – wiping it out altogether...Despite all this, we blocked their daily attacks, sending them back defeated, bearing their dead and wounded. And not once did American forces dare storm our position, what clearer proof of their cowardice, fear and lies concerning the myth of their alleged power is there?! ”
