The world’s most wanted terrorist has been killed by U.S forces in a join military operation with Pakistan’s ISI. U.S has for long used Osama as an excuse to invade foreign lands and kill millions of innocent people.
Osama bin Laden — the longtime leader of al Qaeda — was killed by U.S. forces in a mansion about 100 kilometers, or 62 miles, north of the Pakistani capital of Islamabad along with other family members, a senior U.S. official said.
Bin Laden resisted the assault and was killed in a firefight, senior administration officials said.
Three other men were also killed in raid, as was a woman who was being used as a human shield, senior administration officials said.
The U.S. team was at the compound for about 40 minutes, the officials said. There were no casualties on the American side, although a U.S. helicopter crashed during the raid due to mechanical problems. The helicopter was then destroyed for security reasons, senior administration officials said.
A senior administration official told reporters that Obama’s administration did not share intelligence gathered beforehand with any other country — including Pakistan — for security reasons.
The official said only a small group of people inside the U.S. government knew about this operation ahead of time. Another official said a “small U.S. team” was involved in the operation; but the official would not confirm any U.S. military involvement.
However, a senior defense official said U.S. Navy SEALs were involved.
