  1. Bruce says:

    Bin Laden’s death comes just a few months before the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, which killed more than 3,000 people.

    The attacks sparked a series of events that led to U.S. wars in Afghanistan and then Iraq.

    The State Department alerted United States embassies and warned its citizens abroad for possible reprisal attacks from al-Qaida and its affiliates around the world after the death of group leader Osama bin Laden hands of U.S. forces in Pakistan.

    In a global warning – issued shortly after President Barack Obama announced on Sunday night the death of bin Laden in a military operation – the State Department said there was a “high potential for violence given the recent anti-American counter-terrorism activities in Pakistan. ”

    He said U.S. citizens living abroad, particularly in areas where there has been anti-US violence in the past, should avoid leaving their homes and gather in large groups.

    1) The death of Osama bin Laden has captured the world’s attention. After more than a decade, the world’s most wanted man is dead. Details are starting to emerge about precisely what happened and when.

    August 2010 Pentagon receives tip that Osama bin Laden may be in compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Tip is considered promising, but is just one of many. President Obama is informed.
    February 2011 Pentagon determines that Abbottabad compound is likely location of Osama bin Laden.
    March 2011 Series of national security meetings held to discuss how best to attack the compound.
    Friday April 29th 2011 President Obama gives the order to attack the compound, following advice from security officials.
    Sunday May 1st 2011 At around midnight, 40 US special forces operative attack the compound. Osama bin Laden is killed.
    Monday May 2nd 2011 Bin Laden’s body is buried at sea.

    It’s very clear that this was a long-planned operation. Bin Laden had slipped away before, so the US wanted to be very careful and methodical. They clearly believed that bin Laden would stay at the compound until or unless he believed he had been located

    2) Because he has done many bad things against the USA. He killeds lots of American people in too many terroristic attacks like the one on 11 of September, 2011 on Manhattan.

    3)Some people think he is still alive because they have said nine times that he was dead, and he was still alive. Some others think is true.

  4. Lucas Posse says:

    We were shocked by what we saw, an extraordinarily unique compound,” a CIA official said. “It has 12-to-18-foot walls, topped with barbed wire; internal walls sectioned off different areas of the compound; access was restricted by two security gates.”

    U.S spys tried to find Bin Laden for many years.U.S spys knew some places that they were expected to be Terrorists.Finally they discovered a secret base that had 12 to 18 foot tall walls with barbed wires on top.They were just to security gates.

    He was wanted because he made a group named ‘Al-Qaeda’.That group destroyed the twin towers.They killed thousands of people.

    They think he isn’t dead because he was thrown to the sea very fast.They dind’t even showed the dead corp.

  5. Franco Demaria says:

    1)U.S. helicopters landes at bin Laden´s hide out near a pakistani military academy and had a firefight with his body guards. Bin Laden and one of his sons were killed that night. Bin Laden was shot in the head and he was buried in the sea.
    2) he was so wanted by the U.S. because he had planned and executed the terrorist attack of the 11/09/2001.
    3) Some people don´t belive he is dead because there is no proof that the U.S. troops have ever had an encounter with him.

  6. Tadeo says:

    1)
    Osama Bin Laden was caught by a militar action of EE.UU.He actually died in that attempt because a messenger of his intimate group was located by the servicies of EE.UU ,they located the messenger in the area he was working.He was located 55 km at north of Islamabad (Pakistan),in a fortified mansion.In march Obama knew about this opereation and he aprobated this opreation the day 29 of april. Any counrty knew this operation even Pakistan.It lasted 40 minutes by a small group of elite U.S. military.
    2)
    He was so wanted by the U.S.A because he killed a lot of american people in terrorist attacks ,like the one on Manhatan in 11/09/2001.
    3)
    Some people believe he is still alive because USA said a lot of times that he was death and it was not ,because it was a dream of USA to he be dead and beacause they did not show the body or photos of the body ,nothing they show.

    1.

    Some USA helicopters arrived to Bin Laden´s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan. He was killed by a shot in the head. The USA knew since August but they had enough information about Bin Laden one week before they killed him.

    2.

    Because of what happened on 9/11/01, Bin Laden´s terrorist attack. Obama says that the USA is still suffering because of the four planes that attacked the USA that day. That four airplanes were send by Bin Laden. Two planes crashed the Twin Towers and New York was the most affected area that day, but two more were directed to Washington. One hit the Pentagon, the other that was directed to the White House never arrived. Obama says that it was the worst attack to American people in history.

    3.

    Because the USA never showed Bin Laden´s body. They through him to the sea very quickly.

  8. josefina says:

    Osama binladen was caught by the american fources. he was found 10 years after he had caused all the damadge to the U.S.A hiding in a cave in pakistan.
    the american fources found him , killed him and later took his body.

    He was wanted my the U.S.A because in the 11 of september of 2001, he threw a bomb and exploted the two twin towers. In the insiden, about 50 people have been killed and during other years, he killer thousands of innicent people from allover the world.

    Some people still believe osama bin laden isnt dead because The U.S.A hasnt showed any pictures or videos of Osama binladen. Also, because osama bin laden could still be hiding anywhere.

  9. abril lopez says:

    Bin Laden was caught 10 years later that he did that Bad to the Unites States of America, He was living in Pakistan the fources came and killed him they then took the body to the united states.
    he was so “famous” (but in a bad way) because he Killed a lot of people in the twins towers, and he killed a lot of INNOCCENT people beacuse he wnated!
    some people dont believe he is dead because nobody has shown any videos or some evidence to prove he is dead, he could be everywere but i believe that he is dead they can not lie with a hting like this

  10. Mechi Anelo says:

    1- The CIA was following the messenger of Osama Bin Laden during the last 4 years and finally he was located at a million-dollar home, with no telephone and no internet connections, in Abbottabad, Pakistan. A small group of North Americans soldiers ( The Navy Seals Team Six) carried out the operation. After the fight they killed him and took custody of his body. He was shot in the head, after he and his bodyguards resisted the assault. Three adult males, one of Bin Laden’s sons and one woman (she was used like a shield by a male combatant) were killed too. U.S. helicopters landed in Bin Laden’s hideout and back out in less than 40 minutes.
    2- Osama Bin Laden was so wanted by the USA because he and his group Al Qaeda declared war against the Occidental world. They confessed that the destruction of the twin towers in New York (11-S) and the bombs in Madrid and London were made by them and that they will continue trying to destroy the USA and its friends. Obama said that he can`t allow the threatens to the security of America and a lot of people died because of Osama Bin Laden.
    3- Some people still believe that Osama Bin Laden is still alive because Obama didn’t show any picture of Bin Laden dead. However, I think he is dead because he would not like to be a looser and he would tell he is still alive. I also think that he is dead because his friends want to take revenge.

    1-
    Osama Bin Laden was captured by an special infantry command of American army .HE was living in a house in Pakistan and they found him and killed him and another members of his family.
    It’s very clear that this was a long-planned operation. Bin Laden had slipped away before, so the US wanted to be very carefully and methodical.

    2-
    Bin Laden’s death comes just a few months before the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, which killed more than 3,000 people. He was wanted by the U.S.A because in the 11 of september of 2001, Osama Bin Laden , leader of terrorist group Al Qaeda, was the responsable of that terrible attack to the Twin Towers. He threw a bomb and exploted into the two twin towers. In the insiden, around 2750 people had been killed. A lot of innocent people from all over the world were killed in this attack.
    3-
    The oppositors and conspiracionists doubt Osama’s death because there are too many contradictions in the speeches of the white house when they refer to this topic. Some people think that Osama is not death. Some people think that the death of Bin Laden is a Barak Obama’s strategy to win the near election of 2012.
    Other one of the theories assures that Osama did not go to the one that they killed. Even, there is the idea of that the leader of Al-Qaeda was not the one who organized the assaults of 11-S, since he does not exist. This conjecture affirms that it is a character created whom it is possible to blame for the terrorist crimes.

  12. Delfina D :) says:

    1) After almost ten years of looking for Osama Ben Laden the CIA found him in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The CIA spied for months every movement of him, hidden installed on a house used as a base of operations for the mission. Last Sunday the forces entered in his house and all finished after a thirty eight minutes of crossed fire. Laden died in the attempt. The special forces took possession of the body. Meanwhile this mission took part, Obama and other US authorities were watching this from the white house.
    2) Because he was responsible of the 9/11/01 terrorism attack.
    3) Because Obama doesn’t want to show the “pictures” of the dead body.

  13. juli molmenti says:

    1)Osama binladen was caught by a small team of American troops whowre sendit by obama in a secret operation to pursue and assassinate bin Laden. Bin laden was staing on the ground floor of the house, when he was captured and dragged on the floor to the helicopter after being shot by a goups of soldiers.

    2)Osama Bin Laden was the founder of al-Qaeda, that was an organistion responsible for the September 11 terrorism attack on the United States and a lot of other accidents. that day September 11 terrorism attack, a lot of persons died so, usa wanted him dead.

    3) Not everyone believes Osama really is dead, Was it really him? How do we know? Where are the pictures? those questions are mos of people beliving. To belive such big notices you need some proves and people don´t have them. I agree some things whith them WHY THE DONT show the “pictures” of the dead body.

  14. mateo vidal says:

    1. Osama was caught in his base by a group of the CIA after a lot of search around the world the CIA find Laden´s headquarter and immediately the agents got him on his base in surprise.

    2. Because he was a terrorist and he was the leader of the attack versus the gemel towers.

    3. Because the body of Bin Laden was not showed when they kill them so some persons believe that it could be other person that was killed but the rest of his men say that they will attack the USA so it is believed that he is death.

  15. Sofi Achaval says:

    Osama Bin Laden was catched when he was in Pakistan by the American Fources. They came, killed him and took his body to the U.S.A.
    Because he was a terrorist, he killed a lot of innocent people, he do a lot of bad things and he was the responsable of the attack in 11/09/2001.
    Because Obama didn´t show the dead body. None has show any picture or video proving that he is dead.

  17. juan says:
