Skip to comments.Pakistan's Prime Minister Says U.S. 'Martyred' Osama bin Laden
Posted on 06/26/2020 4:10:53 AM PDT by Cronos
Pakistans prime minister said on Thursday that the United States martyred the al-Qaida leader and mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Osama bin Laden, a term that reflected a subtle stab at Washington as its mainly used for honorable figures slain in battle.
Imran Khan delivered the stab in a rambling budget speech in parliament, attacking his predecessors foreign policies and saying that Pakistans partnership with the United States in the war on terror was a mistake.
Khan also said Washington used abusive language against Pakistan, blaming Islamabad for its failures in neighboring Afghanistan and most of all refused to tell Islamabad of its operation against bin Laden in 2011 before carrying out the Navy SEALs nighttime raid. The special operations force swooped into Pakistans military garrison town of Abbottabad in the middle of the night on May 2, 2011, killing bin Laden and several of his operatives.
We sided with the U.S. in the War on Terror but they came here and killed him, martyred him and
used abusive language against us (and) did not inform us (of the raid), ... Khan told Parliament.

Didn’t his country protect Bin Laden when he was in hiding in that compound?
This guy Khan is a LARPer.
Nonsense. 100% Bush's fault. What a stupid retard.

Well, thats a weird thing to say. We side with you on the War on Terror. But we are angry because you killed the biggest terrorist of all.
> Nonsense. 100% Bush’s fault. What a stupid retard. <
Right. Blaming Obama for the Afghanistan/Iraq mess would be like blaming Nixon for the Vietnam mess.
And in a way George W. Bush was even worse (stupider) than LBJ. Johnson had no history to learn from, except maybe the Korean War. W had all the mistakes of Vietnam right in front of him. Yet he repeated almost all of them.
If they ever put up a statue of George W. Bush, I wouldnt tear it down. Im not an anarchist. But I would DEMAND that your phrase be inscribed on the statue: What a stupid retard.
Well Nuke You Paki...
After 9/11, bush could have done ANYTHING. He could have taken over Pakistan’s government and stationed 500,000 troops there. He could (should) have seized all their nukes. Instead he trusted the Godfather of the Taliban to help defeat the Taliban.
Pakistan has been playing both sides forever.
They hate Trump because he will not pay them off.
> After 9/11, bush could have done ANYTHING <
Right. Bush had a historical opportunity, one that comes maybe only once in a thousand years. He could have crushed radical Islam into dust. Just as FDR crushed Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany into dust.
But instead Bush told us - and the world - that Islam is peace.
So Ive got to ask myself. Had Al Gore been elected in 2000, could he have done any worse? I dont think so. It least Gore would not have invaded Iraq while the Afghanistan war was still raging.
Id better stop now. My blood pressure is spiking again.
Martyred? He’s not even dead. Why else would there be no proof/evidence? Dumped his body at sea? Yeah. Whatever.
Imran Kahn had the world at his feet when he played soccer. Married to Jemima Goldsmith (UK, big important family) for a while. Divorced from her......just doing what his Pakistan supporters now. Too bad. He used to be a sex symbol, now just another wacko Politician.
IF, he is really dead.
its mainly used for honorable figures slain in battle
Similar thought with McCain. Could he have done worse than Obama, and the answer is probably YES. We would have had a mass amnesty 5 times the size of 1986, in addition to a new Cold War with Russia and a few hot ones as well.
this is why I pray for Trump, and hope his successor is not a Nikki Haley or other globalist traitor.
Pakis loved Osama.
