Obama 'obliterated' Osama's family, sons say

WASHINGTON - THE sons of Osama bin Laden broke their silence on Tuesday denouncing his 'arbitrary killing' and burial at sea as the United States sought to question the Al-Qaeda leader's widows.

In a statement given to the New York Times, the sons asked why their father 'was not arrested and tried in a court of law so that the truth is revealed to the people of the world.'

'We maintain that arbitrary killing is not a solution to political problems,' it said. In a separate statement posted on jihadist sites, the sons also slammed the 'criminal mission' ordered by US President Barack Obama which 'obliterated an entire defenceless family.'

Osama was killed by US forces on May 2 after being tracked down to a Pakistani compound where the architect of the September 11, 2001 attacks is believed to eluded capture for years, despite a massive global hunt.

The statements denouncing his father's killing are said to have been prepared at the direction of Omar bin Laden, 30, and also called for Pakistani authorities to release the Al-Qaeda leader's three wives and children.

The United States is keen to question the three women in hopes of finding out more details of Al-Qaeda's reach and organisation, as well as details of Osama's final years. -- AFP

Pakistan is preparing to block a lawsuit in a US court that alleges complicity of its spy chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha in the audacious 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, on the grounds that it will pour "gasoline on the fire" of Indo-Pak relations. The country's military-run ISI has roped in American la wyers, who are moving to quash the lawsuit in a Brooklyn court by arguing that if the case proceeds, it "will fuel violence and extremism" that will threaten Pakistan government and pour "gasoline on the fire" of relations between Pakistan and India, NBC News reported

70 killed as Taleban claim Osama revenge

SHABQADAR (Pakistan) - PAKISTAN'S Taleban on Friday claimed their first major strike in revenge for Osama bin Laden's death as at least 70 people were killed in a double suicide bombing on paramilitary police.

More than 100 people were wounded in the deadliest attack in the nuclear-armed Muslim country this year, which came with the government deep in crisis over the killing of the Al-Qaeda chief by US forces on May 2.

The explosions detonated in northwest Pakistan as newly trained paramilitary cadets were getting into buses and coaches for a 10-day leave after a training course, and they were wearing civilian clothes, police said.

'This was the first revenge for Osama's martyrdom. Wait for bigger attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan,' Pakistani Taleban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told AFP by telephone from an undisclosed location. 'Two of our fedayeen (suicide bombers) carried out these attacks,' he added.

The bombers blew themselves up outside a police training centre in Shabqadar town, about 30km north of Peshawar in the north-west region where Taleban and Al-Qaeda-linked militants repeatedly attack security forces.

Police officials confirmed that at least 70 people had been killed, making it the deadliest attack in Pakistan since Nov 5 when a suicide bomber killed 68 people at a mosque in the north-west area of Darra Adam Khel. -- AFP

Egyptian named new Al-Qaeda leader

WASHINGTON - AL-QAEDA has chosen a former Egyptian Special Forces officer as interim leader of the violent extremist group in the wake of Osama bin Laden's death earlier this month, CNN reported on Tuesday.

Saif al-Adel, a top Al-Qaeda strategist and senior military leader, has been tapped as 'caretaker' chief of the group, CNN reported, citing former Libyan militant Noman Benotman, who has renounced Al-Qaeda's ideology.

Pakistan's The News newspaper corroborated the claim, citing unnamed sources in an article datelined Rawalpindi, a city home to the military headquarters of the Pakistani Armed Forces near the capital Islamabad.

The decision to chose Adel, also known as Muhamad Ibrahim Makkawi, came as militants grew increasingly restive over the lack of a formal successor to Osama, who was killed in a dramatic US commando raid deep in Pakistan on May 2, Benotman told CNN.

Osama's long-time deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri, another Egyptian, is considered to be his presumed successor.

Mr Benotman said the appointment of Adel on a temporary basis may be a way for the group to gauge reaction to having someone outside the Muslim holy region of the Arabian Peninsula at the helm. -- AFP

Doesnt matter, it is nothing more than a rag tag disorganised bunch of nuts incapable of doing any thing, it clearly proves a point, successful terrorism needs a state support.

The image of terrorist is motivated by ideology or desire for liberation with political agenda (using the armed forces) backed by funding: though the new image of terrorism has different motives, sponsors and agenda. There is no rational way to win the war on terror, for we must have the same agenda and diminish all that pose risk as new terror.

Some terrorists are actually freedom fighters  but are often labelled as rebels too.
Politicians and crooked businessmen resort to unacceptable practices in order to get what they want.
Of course corrupt officials accept bribary too and close one eye on terrorist activities.
Terrorists can also make two countries fight against each other.
