    Bin Laden Son Reported Killed In Pakistan

    Bin Laden Son Reported Killed In Pakistan

    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.
    Real shame he wasn't having a family reunion at the time the Hellfire stopped by for a visit.

    You mean go back to ignoring al Qaeda like we did pre-9/11?

    Wouldn't that mean we'd invite more attacks by only being on the defensive?

    I hope they are carefully examining the region he was found, good odds he was near his father.

    That's true he has several scores of the little buggers who are supposedly his. After all he did have at least one legitimate wife, a few neo-wives, a parawive, an a concubine or two.
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    You're "Slightly Liberal"? If you really mean this, you've "grown"...
