Osama has bin laden!

Osama has finally bin laden.  Pardon the pun, but he has been finally laid to rest.

The most notorious terrorist of the 20th century – the guy who carried out some daring attacks and inspired the sickest mindsets the world over of many a faithful, is dead.

Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in a mansion outside the Pakistani capital of Islamabad along with other family members, senior U.S. official tells CNN.

The real story here shouldn’t be that he is dead, but where he died! Outskirts of Islamabad, in a mansion – points to a clear case of harboring of him by an organization like the ISI – Pakistan’s Intelligence force. We at Drishtikone.com have been saying this time and again. Earlier, the other important guy – Khalid Mohammad was also captured from Rawalpindi, which isn’t far from Islamabad. But, last time when Mohammad was caught, no one asked the obvious question – what the heck was he doing there, and WHO OWNED that place?

Can we please ask this simple question this time around? Just get the property papers of the mansion he was in as well as the last few occupants? It will be easy to know who was controlling the inmates of that place. Also, if the US media can be kind enough to ask the CIA to reveal who visited/frequented that mansion from the Pakistani Government/Army/ISI, then it will be a great help! It will also let everyone know, as to who continues his mission now that he is no more. For those who sheltered him to fervently, will shelter his goals as much!
