Osama’s death confirmed by Al-Queda

As post posted on Jihadist Internet Forum, the death of Al-Queda’s founder Late. Osama Bin Laden is the fact. It has approved the death of Bin Laden by US-operation in his apartment at Abbotabad, Pakistan.

The post also states the anger and revengeful opinion of Al-Queda’s against US and it’s supporting countries. Stating the “blood of Laden will not be wasted”, challenges have been given to attack US regularly and its allies.

The US-operation held in Pakistan without prior information to Pakistan’s authorities has created rivalry between

these hostile countries.Several rallies and street protest were launched in Pakistan against USA and it’s operation in Pakistan.

‘Revolt’

The statement published on jihadist web forums, signed by “the general leadership” of al-Qaeda, said an audiotape would be released of Bin Laden speaking a week before his death.

“[His blood] will remain, with permission from Allah, the Almighty, a curse that chases the Americans and their agents, and goes after them inside and outside their countries,” it warned.

“Their happiness will turn into sorrow, and their blood will be mixed with their tears. We call upon our Muslim people in Pakistan, on whose land Sheikh Osama was killed, to rise up and revolt.”

The release of a statement from “the general leadership” of al-Qaeda may do something to undermine the conspiracy theories circulating in some quarters that Osama Bin Laden is not dead.

However, there will no doubt be some for whom even this will not be enough, who will argue it is not definitive proof.

The message is also a means for al-Qaeda to stress that it remains in business and is committed to continuing its former leader’s work.

The US is attempting to exploit the death of Bin Laden to undermine the organisation. It is using intelligence retrieved from his compound to go after others, and trying to undermine the mythology surrounding the al-Qaeda leader to weaken the morale of his supporters.

The statement also opens the way for al-Qaeda to name a successor. Ayman al-Zawahiri is one possibility although he is believed to be a divisive figure.

Correspondents say many Pakistanis are angry at what they see as a US infringement of their country’s sovereignty.

They are also critical of Pakistan’s government for allowing the commando operation to happen, although officials deny they were told.

Hundreds of people gathered in central Abbottabad following Friday prayers. They set fire to tyres, blocked a main road and shouted “Down, down USA!” and “terrorist, terrorist, USA terrorist”.

Anti-American sentiment also appeared to be high at a similar protest in the south-western city of Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province.

However, a BBC correspondent in Rawalpindi says the anti-US protest there was much smaller than expected with about 50 people turning up.

Monday’s helicopter-borne raid by US special forces has further strained relations between the US and Pakistan.

On Thursday, Pakistani military leaders warned they would review co-operation with the US if there were any more unilateral raids.

Officials also admitted “shortcomings” for failing to locate Bin Laden in a compound that was in a suburb of Abbottabad about a kilometre from the Pakistan Military Academy, and said an investigation would be launched. The Al-Qaeda statement said an audiotape of Bin Laden recorded before his death would be released

Meanwhile, reports from the US says documents found at Osama Bin Laden’s compound suggest he was planning further attacks on the US, including on the 10th anniversary of 11 September 2001.

One plan was to target a US rail route, officials said, although no imminent threat was detected.

Officials are examining computers, DVDs, hard-drives and documents seized from the compound where Bin Laden is believed to have been hiding for about six years.

One of Bin Laden’s wives being interrogated by Pakistani security officials said she had never left the upper floors of the compound the entire time she was there.

She and Bin Laden’s other two wives were taken into custody following Monday’s raid.

Pakistani authorities are also holding eight or nine children who were found there, but it is not clear how many of them are Bin Laden’s.
