    US tracked couriers to an elaborate bin Laden compound

    It started with a courier's name.

    Senior White House officials said early Monday that the trail that led to Osama bin Laden began before 9/11, before the terror attacks that brought bin Laden to prominence. The trail warmed up last fall, when it discovered an elaborate compound in Pakistan.
    "From the time that we first recognized bin Laden as a threat, the U.S. gathered information on people in bin Laden's circle, including his personal couriers," a senior official in the Obama administration said in a background briefing from the White House.
    After the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, "detainees gave us information on couriers. One courier in particular had our constant attention. Detainees gave us his nom de guerre, his pseudonym, and also identified this man as one of the few couriers trusted by bin Laden."
    In 2007, the U.S. learned the man's name.
    In 2009, "we identified areas in Pakistan where the courier and his brother operated. They were very careful, reinforcing belief we were on the right track."
    In August 2010, "we found their home in Abbottabad," in an isolated area.




    "When we saw the compound, we were shocked by what we saw: an extraordinarily unique compound."
    The plot of land was roughly eight times larger than the other homes in the area. It was built in 2005 on the outskirts of town, but now some other homes are nearby.
    "Physical security is extraordinary: 12 to 16 foot walls, walled areas, restricted access by two security gates." The residents burn their trash, unlike their neighbors. There are no windows facing the road. One part of the compound has its own seven-foot privacy wall.
    And unusual for a multi-million-dollar home: It has no telephone or Internet service.
    This home, U.S. intelligence analysts concluded, was "custom built to hide someone of significance."
    Besides the two brothers, the U.S. "soon learned that a third family lived there, whose size and makeup of family we believed to match those we believed would be with bin Laden. Our best information was that bin Laden was there with his youngest wife."
    There was no proof, but everything seemed to fit: the security, the background of the couriers, the design of the compound.
    "Our analysts looked at this from every angle. No other candidate fit the bill as well as bin Laden did," an official said.
    "The bottom line of our collection and analysis was that we had high confidence that the compound held a high-value terrorist target. There was a strong probability that it was bin Laden."
    This information was shared "with no other country," an official said. "Only a very small group of people inside our own government knew of this operation in advance."
    The raid
    The operation went smoothly except for a mechanical problem with a U.S. helicopter, which was lost, the senior officials said. No U.S. personnel died. All were able to leave on other helicopters. the officials would not name the type of helicopter or say how many U.S. personnel were involved.
    "Ths operation was a surgical raid by a small team designed to minimize collateral damage. Our team was on the compound for under 40 minutes and did not encounter any local authorities."




    Bin Laden himself participated in the firefight, the officials suggested.
    "Bin laden was killed in a firefight as our operators came onto the compound," an official said.
    Did he fire, a reporter asked.
    "He did resist the assault force, and he was killed in a firefight," an official said.
    Four adult males were killed: bin Laden, his son, and the two couriers.
    "One woman killed when used as a shield," and other women were injured, the officials said. The women's names were not given; it's not clear whether bin Laden's wife was among them.
    Handling bin Laden's body
    Officials said they will take care with bin Laden's body.
    "We are assuring it is handled in accordance with Islamic practice and tradition," an official said. "We take this very seriously. This is being handled in an appropriate manner."
    The officials also said they expect attacks from bin Laden's loyalists who may step up the timing of attacks.
    "In the wake of this operation, there may be a heightened threat to the U.S. homeland. The U.S. is taking every possible precaution." The State Department has sent advisories to embassies worldwide and has issued a travel ban for Pakistan.
    "Although al-Qaeda will not fragment immediately," an official said, "the death of bin Laden puts al-Qaida on a path of decline that will be difficult to reverse."

    IT WAS JOINT US-PAK OPERATION

    "Osama bin Laden's death is likely to have a dramatic impact on the dynamic between the U.S. and Pakistan, where relations recently have been strained, and in the Afghan war, the longest in U.S. history.

    Mr. bin Laden was killed in Abbottabad, 40 miles from Islamabad, in what a Pakistani intelligence official said was a joint operation. President Barack Obama also noted Pakistan's contribution to the raid Sunday night. Pakistan's contribution to the assault may help overcome U.S. frustration that Islamabad has not been more aggressive in reaching Mr. bin Laden. "

    I told you yaar, it's a conspiracy - There never was a perrson called Osama - and if there was, he was never in Pakistan - but if he was killed in Pakistan, then Fauj and ISI did it -- it help if you are Pakistani, then you'll have no problem understanding how all of this makes perfect sense
