  • Obama administration lied about the killing of Osama bin Laden, journalist Seymour Hersh reports

    Veteran investigative journalist Seymour Hersh makes several bombshell assertions in a 10,000-word story about the 2011 Navy Seal raid that killed al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden.Among the key assertions: a former Pakistani intelligence officer offered information on bin Laden’s whereabouts to the CIA station chief in Islamabad in exchange for a US$25 million reward posted by the US.According to the official version of events, US intelligence learned of Osama bin Laden’s whereabouts by tracking his courier to his Abbottabad compound.Hersh also writes that the ISI, Pakistan’s version of the CIA, had captured bin Laden in Hindu Kush mountains in 2006 and kept him prisoner at the Abbottabad compound.The report also says Pakistani and US intelligence had agreed to concoct a cover story to explain bin Laden’s death. They would tell the world one week after the raid that bin Laden was killed in a drone strike on the Afghanistan side of the border, to be confirmed by DNA evidence.Hersh also claims Navy Seals threw parts of bin Laden’s body from a helicopter as it flew over the Hindu Kush mountains.
