Question Bin Laden 'surrounded'

Bin Laden 'surrounded'

February 22, 2004
A BRITISH Sunday newspaper is claiming Osama bin Laden has been found and is surrounded by US special forces in an area of land bordering north-west Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The Sunday Express, known for its sometimes colourful scoops, claims the al-Qaeda leader has been "sighted" for the first time since 2001 and is being monitored by satellite.

The paper claims he is in a mountainous area to the north of the Pakistani city of Quetta. The region is said to be peopled with bin Laden supporters and the terrorist leader is estimated to also have 50 of his fanatical bodyguards with him.

The claim is attributed to "a well-placed intelligence source" in Washington, who is quoted as saying: "He (bin Laden) is boxed in."

The paper says the hostile terrain makes an all-out conventional military assault impossible. The plan to capture him would depend on a "grab-him-and-go" style operation.

"US helicopters already sited on the Afghanistan border will swoop in to extricate him," the newspaper says. It claims bin Laden and his men "sleep in caves or out in the open. The area is swept by fierce snow storms howling down from the 10,000ft-high mountain peaks. Donkeys are the only transport."

The special forces are "absolutely confident" there is no escape for bin Laden, and are awaiting the order to go in and get him.

"The timing of that order will ultimately depend on President Bush," the paper says. "Capturing bin Laden will certainly be a huge help for him as he gets ready for the election."

The article says bin Laden's movements are monitored by a National Security Agency satellite.

On Thursday last week, General Richard Myers, chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, said America had been engaged in "intense" efforts to capture bin Laden, who was believed to be hiding in the border area between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

But he insisted that the focus of the search had not narrowed for months.

That coward will never be taken alive, I'd be willin to bet on it. It will be a MIRACLE if they capture him. Let's all hope & pray. It would serve a little justice for all the innocent people that he's killed and maimed.

I'll never forget the World Trade Centers crumbling to the ground. I saw it from Jersey City. I have a hate burning inside of me for Bin Laden and his bunch of terrorist scumbags since 9-11.
He has to be caught Dead or Alive. And all those terrorists have to be killed. No matter where they are and who is harboring them.

Hopefully, this is accurate and we have him surrounded. Capturing Saddam was great for our country and world, this would be the icing on the cake. Let us all pray that our military is close.

I also agree that a bullet is far too good. Noriega was held in a federal penitentiary in Illinois until he died. Just knowing that he was isolatated, a world away from his people would work for me.

Of course, it doesn't help to know that many of the Saudis have been schooled to hate the West. In other words, I doubt it will stop terrorism long term. HOWEVER, I FULLY SUPPORT ALL ACTIONS OUR GOVERNMENT IS TAKING TO PROTECT OUR COUNTRY AND PROMOTE FREEDOM ACROSS THE GLOBE. On a personal side, one of my coworkers is a sniper SGT. recently deployed to Tekrete. Although his mission is terrible, I wish him God-speed and good hunting.
