It’s been long since Osama bin Laden’s chapter has closed but some recent reveling surely show the truth, lies and propaganda behind the whole operation that led to the fall of world’s the most wanted terrorist. The latest details that came to the fore recently show that everything we know about the entire episode so far: the way ‘Operation Neptune Spear’ has been handled, executed and the aftermath that followed was a blatant lie. At least, the official account from US administration differs completely to what exactly happened.
Lies, lies and more of it

The whole thing started with a former Pakistani intelligence officer disclosing the whereabouts of Osama to CIA in exchange of $25 million bounty on the world’s most wanted terrorist. The news reveals it that rather than hiding in Pakistan, Osama was the prisoner of the army and was under house arrest. Pakistani army was taking care of his upkeep in return of huge funds from Saudi Arabia.
The beginning of hunt
The hunt to send Osama to the graveyard began in 2010 after a Pakistani military official disclosed the whereabouts of Osama to the then CIA’s station chief in Pakistan’s embassy. US confirmed the information and put the building under satellite surveillance. US administration later informed the ISI and the raid was well planned and practiced before the operation was executed.
Prepare for more lies
Now let’s come back to the misleading accounts and blatant lies that involve in the whole episode. Two of the Pakistan’s most influential military officials of the time: army chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and ISI chief Ahmed Shuja Pasha lied about knowing or being informed anything about US raid on Abbottabad premise. Instead, when US contacted Pak military officials, they wanted Osama dead and the news of the same to be reported after a week. Saudi Arabia also knew about Osama’s presence and asked Pakistani officials to keep him as a prisoner.
Pakistan wanted to come clean

Pakistani officials wanted Americans to say that Osama was found in a mountainous region of Hindukush so that Afghanistan and Pakistan in particular can come up with clean hands. However, things went other way round when Obama, without consulting Pak army chief, addressed the nation live and thrashed Pakistan army. One more important thing that remains to mention is Dr. Shakil Afridi, a physician by profession, but a CIA aid that helped in tracing Osama is in jail now. He has no clue about the Operation. Instead, he was used as a cover to hide the real story.
Are we surprised?
The revealing is shocking and we aren’t impressed the way US of A misled its own countrymen and the whole world on the entire episode involving the fall of world’s most ferocious terrorist. Whether the information reveled earlier or now is true or not makes no sense. The fact is US hammered the last nail in Osama’s coffin on the night of May 2, 2011. What US stated, what exactly happened and what is reported has great anomalies. The million-dollar question is why the world is surprised. It hasn’t happened for the first time. Rather, is the nature and habit of world’s manipulator of highest order US of A that is.
US episode of Osama hunt, the way ‘Operation Neptune Spear’ was planed, executed and what was reported differ considerably. US not only misled its own fellow citizens on the account involving Osama’s hunt and his killing but also the whole world.
