"60 Minutes": Death of Bin Laden
The former Seal who goes by the name Mark Owen was on 60 minutes tonight. He said the raid on the Osama bin Laden compound was not a kill mission.
He then describes how they were going up the stairs and had been told to expect one of bin Laden's sons to be there. They saw a figure disappear behind a door. They didn't know who it was. A Seal, on a hunch, whispers "Khalid." The figure peeks around the corner. The Seal shoots him dead. It was Khalid bin Laden.
Owen: “Curiosity killed the cat. I guess Khalid, too.”
But this was not a kill mission.
So where is Osama's other son, Hamza bin Laden? In May, he was reported to be in Pakistan. He never was at the compound, he was in Pershawar. The source: Bin Laden himself, in a letter written a month before the raid, a copy of which was on the computer disks seized during the raid and published by the Combatting Terror Center at West Point. The part about Hamza begins on page 8. On page 9, he says Hamza is in Pershewar and he wants someone to tell him to go stay with his mother and postpone his training.
So, if there are still communications, it would be good that one of the brothers calls him from one of the places that are safe to call from, and informs Muhammad that Hamzah is telling him that his father wants him to go with his mother and siblings to Qatar ASAP, and to live there until the situation is resolved soon, Allah willing.
I wonder if Hamza took his father's advice And where he is now.
