Osama Bin Laden Dead Long Before US Raid- Iran's Intelligence Minister Says

Iran's intelligence minister says the country has reliable information that former head of the al-Qaeda terrorist group Osama bin Laden died of disease some time ago.
“We have accurate information that bin Laden died of illness some time ago,” Heidar Moslehi told reporters on the sidelines of a Cabinet meeting on Sunday.

He questioned Washington's claim that bin Laden was killed by American troops in a hiding compound in Pakistan on May 1.

“If the US military and intelligence apparatus have really arrested or killed bin Laden, why don't they show him (his dead body) why have they thrown his corpse into the sea?” Moslehi asked.

“When we apprehended [former Jundallah ringleader Abdul Malik] Rigi, we showed him and also aired his interview,” ISNA quoted the intelligence chief as saying.

By releasing such false news, he said, the White House seeks to overshadow regional awakening.

Moslehi said US officials resort to such PR campaigns to divert attention from their domestic problems as well as their “fragile” economic situation.

US President Barack Obama claimed that Osama bin Laden was killed by US forces on May 1 in a hiding compound in Pakistan.

A US official later announced that bin Laden's body was abruptly buried at sea, falsely boasting that his hasty burial was in accordance with the Islamic law, requiring burial within 24 hours of death.

However, burial at sea is not an Islamic practice and Islam does not have a timeframe for burial.

US officials also claimed their decision for a sea burial was made because no country would accept bin Laden's remains, without elaborating on which countries were actually contacted on the matter.

Analysts, however, have raised serious questions as to why US officials did not allow for the application of a DNA test to officially confirm the identity of the corpse before its hasty burial.

How then can he explain about what alQeada just confirmed that OBL is really killed recently in the U.S. raid? The Iranian minister should stop spouting conspiracy theory unless he wants the world to perceive how lunatic he is.

Once again... the idiocy continues. Even alQeada confirmed that the U.S. just recently killed Bin Laden. But there are still people who think of it as a conspiracy... (against what?) Get a life!

Oh, that's right! It is Pakistan that has a lot to hide. Pakistan is a nation of liars.

For people like you you'll never know a fact when it hits you in the head. Your prejudice obscures all possibility of an objective analysis. No wonder Pakistan is in such a mess.

I suggest you start questioning Al Qaeda for admitting to the killing of their founder. Besides, the US President will not stake his reputation and risk his reelection on a cheap public lie that is sure to eventually leak into the media (this one is what you call accountability and part of the checks-and-balances mechanism in a democratic society, which you do not have in Pakistan).

BTW, I'm from SEAsia.
