Killed in a hide-out in Pakistan, Osama bin Laden’s body will be transferred to America.
United States President Barack Obama has confirmed that al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden is dead. Bin Laden was killed in a hide-out in Pakistan, north of Islamabad, according to the White House. The Jihadi terrorist was the mastermind of the Trade Tower bombings on September, 11, 2001.
“We conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden,” the president said in a televised address to the United States public.
Other Al Qaida actions against America included bombings of two American embassies in Africa. Obama is vigilant about stamping out terror, a welcome move that would no doubt have environmental and health benefits for the entire Middle East region. While sparse and well planned for media feedback perhaps, bin Laden, believe it or not, was a supporter of climate change. “This was the last conversion to the environmental cause that anybody would have wanted,” the Guardian reported last year.
Playing the blame game, the Saudi Arabian born al Qaida leader pronounced himself a believer in climate change and blamed America and other industrialised economies around the world for not stopping greenhouse gas emissions from changing our atmosphere. He did not mention Saudi Arabia’s role in climate change, or that of any other OPEC oil producing nation’s role.
“Speaking about climate change is not a matter of intellectual luxury — the phenomenon is an actual fact,” the tape says according to al-Jazeera. “All of the industrialized countries, especially the big ones, bear responsibility for the global warming crisis.”
Back in 2002, he made another appeal for the environment, and sent a note to the US: “You have destroyed nature with your industrial waste and gases more than any other nation in history. Despite this, you refuse to sign the Kyoto agreement so that you can secure the profit of your greedy companies and industries.”
