Bin Laden Son Reported Killed In Pakistan

by Mary Louise Kelly

NPR.org, July 22, 2009 · U.S. officials believe Saad bin Laden — a son of Osama bin Laden — has been killed by an American missile in Pakistan.

Saad bin Laden reportedly spent years under house arrest in Iran before traveling last year to Pakistan, according to former National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell.

It's believed he was killed by Hellfire missiles fired from a U.S. Predator drone sometime this year.

A senior U.S. counterterrorism official tells NPR that without a body to conduct DNA tests on, it's hard to be completely sure. But he characterized U.S. spy agencies as being "80 to 85 percent" certain that Saad bin Laden is dead.

The U.S. counterterrorism official says Saad bin Laden wasn't important enough to target personally — that he was "in the wrong place at the wrong time."

He was active in al-Qaida, but was not a major player, the official said. He was believed to be in his late 20s.

"We make a big deal out of him because of his last name," the official added.

It's not known whether Saad bin Laden was anywhere near his father when he died.

Success...lets cut some more funding! Was he mirandized? I bet he would like to choose Gitmo behind door number 3 about now!

I'd like a confirmed kill and 80 - 85 percent is not confirmed. I'd say its more he said she said and we got enough of that to say we think we go a kill.

I hate to talk about a human in the same tone as I would talk about a prize Elk. But... The f*cker has got a prize on his head for a reason right?

big deal they killed 1 of the 20 or 30 sons he has.

Those people bread armys.



On a side note, he does have a few sons who hate him and what he stands for, who have resided in the us living a somewhat normal life.
....I know this for fact.
