Via the Ace of Spades roach motel. Adam Corolla (mild language warning) in video and print asks Leslie Stahl an interesting question: how would you obtain information from people who intend to kill Americans and don't feel like talking about how they're going to do it?
Of course, the progressive Left doesn't have an answer to that. First off, they're not bothered with the idea of dead Americans as long as it isn't them personally. Dead bitter-clinging yahoos in fly-over country is just a price they are willing to pay in their quest to transform our country. Second, in their world things happen without application of hard work, hard choices and hard times. Much like 'Julia' in the Obama campaign's latest ad, one floats along in life while government makes the bad stuff, from evil Rethuglicans to the occasional terrorist, go away. Perhaps it's the unicorn dust.
Because when they could have stop something and didn't, they obstruct and cover up their inaction that led to thousands of deaths. See how they buried the story of Sandy "Papers in his Socks" Berger.
Brig (r) Shaukat Qadir says Osama's personal courier Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, his wife Khairiah, and other friends betrayed him
A year after the late Osama bin Laden ... who was potted in Pakistain... was killed in a US raid in Abbottabad ... A pleasant city located only 30 convenient miles from Islamabad. The city is noted for its nice weather and good schools. It is the site of Pakistain's military academy, which was within comfortable walking distance of the residence of the late Osama bin Laden.... , evidence uncovered by retired Pakistain Army brigadier Shaukat Qadir suggests friends in the Al Qaeda network betrayed the network's chief.
"My year-long research has shown that Al Qaeda sold bin Laden out to the Americans," says Brig (r) Shaukat Qadir, who was given exclusive access to bin Laden's residence and family.
His book, Operation Geronimo: The betrayal and execution of Osama bin Laden and its aftermath, will be published electronically by Amazon.com.
Brig Qadir said bin Laden's personal courier Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, his wife Khairiah, and other unidentified friends betrayed the Al Qaeda chief.
Khairiah, bin Laden's Iranian wife, had left him in 2003 and was insisting on reuniting with him in 2010. Al-Kuwaiti was bragging with several people in Beautiful Downtown Peshawar about his connections and the wealth he had amassed while he was in the Middle East.
Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, a senior Al Qaeda leader, convinced bin Laden to accept Khairiah back. "But Khairiah was extremely jealous of Amal al-Sadah, the youngest wife of bin Laden," Brig Qadir said, because bin Laden had only been sleeping with Amal for four years.
On the night between May 1 and May 2 when American helicopters were hovering over bin Laden's compound, al-Kuwaiti warned his wife that the Americans had arrived. "How on earth did he know they were American helicopters and not Pak?"
He said al-Kuwaiti and his brother, living in the same premises, had Kalashnikovs, but did not fire even a single bullet on the raiding American commandos. "But it's a mystery why both of them were killed if they had reached any kind of deal with the Americans."
Some experts believe al-Kuwaiti was not a traitor, but became careless, and that helped the CIA track bin Laden down.
Brig Qadir said al-Kuwaiti was first detected when he bragged about his business in the Middle East, told people he was running a pharmaceutical agency, and bought a bulk of medicines. The information reached the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). For reasons not yet known, the ISI did not show haste in following the trail.
It has recently been claimed that the ISI had given the American CIA al-Kuwaiti's telephone number, and that proved to be the most crucial lead to bin Laden. "The ISI gave the CIA the telephone number of al-Kuwaiti's brother," Brig Qadir clarified.
Dr Shakeel Afridi, who ran a fake polio ...Poliomyelitis is a disease caused by infection with the poliovirus. Between 1840 and the 1950s, polio was a worldwide epidemic. Since the development of polio vaccines the disease has been largely wiped out in the civilized world. However, since the vaccine is known to make Moslem pee-pees shrink and renders females sterile, bookish, and unsubmissive it is not widely used by the turban and automatic weapons set... vaccination campaign in the area at the CIA's behest, might have spoken to Khairiah on telephone, he said. "There is a possibility the CIA experts had her voice matched."
Brig Qadir said bin Laden's compound was not built to shelter the world most wanted man. It was an ordinary house which did not even have an emergency escape route. It had 10 rooms for 27 people. There were no secret chambers or basements for the residents to hide in case of a raid.
The owner of the six-kanal house was Ibrahim Khan from Kohat, he said. Earlier, the media had reported that one Arshad Khan owned the house.
An official Pak probe team called the Abbottabad Commission is investigating the events and circumstances that led to the presence of bin Laden in Pakistain and his eventual death. It has summoned several civil and military officials.
But analysts believe it would not reach a conclusion to the benefit of either Pakistain or the United States. "It is just a formality the government of Pakistain is fulfilling," an expert said.
