    Osama Bin Laden’s Obituary Notice. December 26, 2001

    This article was first published by GR on November 21st 2013

    A Funeral Notice for Osama bin Laden was published on December 26, 2001, in the Egyptian newspaper al-Ward. An English translation is provided below. Anyone fluent in Arabic is invited to verify or correct the translation. This item was sent to me from a reader abroad.

    Also below are is a CNN interview with its medical correspondent who examines the last non-faked video of bin Laden and concludes that bin Laden is seriously ill.

    There is also below a 2002 report that Israeli intelligence has concluded that bin Laden is dead.

    I cannot attest to the correctness of any of these reports, but it is unclear why there would be so much disinformation from such varied sources about bin Laden’s condition or what purpose is served.

    You can use this information to evaluate the Obama regime’s unsubstantiated claim that Navy SEALs killed bin Laden in Pakistan a decade later.

    Try to identify a single event that the US government has not lied about. Weapons of mass destruction? Iranian nukes? Assad’s chemical attack? Spying on Americans? 9/11? The assassination of President John F. Kennedy? The unemployment rate?

    News of Bin Laden’s Death and Funeral 10 days ago
    Islamabad –

    A prominent official in the Afghan Taleban movement announced yesterday the death of Osama bin Laden, the chief of al-Qa’da organization, stating that binLaden suffered serious complications in the lungs and died a natural and quiet death.

    The official, who asked to remain anonymous, stated to The Observer of Pakistan that he had himself attended the funeral of bin Laden and saw his face prior to burial in Tora Bora 10 days ago. He mentioned that 30 of al-Qa’da fighters attended the burial as well as members of his family and some friends from the Taleban.

    In the farewell ceremony to his final rest guns were fired in the air. The official stated that it is difficult to pinpoint the burial location of bin Laden because according to the Wahhabi tradition no mark is left by the grave. He stressed that it is unlikely that the American forces would ever uncover any traces of bin Laden.

    Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Bin Laden would need help if on dialysis
    (CNN) 1-21-02

    –Speculation about the whereabouts and
    health of Osama bin Laden picked up over
    the weekend when Pakistan’s president, Gen.
    Pervez Musharraf, said he thought bin Laden
    had likely died of kidney failure.

    One Year On, Still No Evidence For Osama Bin Laden’s Killing
    CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta
    spoke Monday with CNN’s Paula Zahn about bin
    Laden’s appearance in recently released
    videotapes and the possibility that the accused
    terrorist leader was undergoing kidney treatment.

    ZAHN: For a point of reference, I’d like for you
    to analyze pictures of Osama bin Laden that
    apparently were taken prior to September 11.

    Describe to us the color and the tone of his skin,
    and then I want you to contrast that with pictures
    we know to have been taken much later.

    GUPTA: You can look [at pictures from a
    December 2001 video] and notice that he has
    what some doctors refer to as sort of a frosting
    over of his features — his sort of grayness of
    beard, his paleness of skin, very gaunt sort of
    features. A lot of times people associate this with
    chronic illness. Doctors can certainly look at that
    and determine some clinical features.

    But even more than that, it’s sometimes possible
    to differentiate the specific type of disease or
    illness that he may be suffering from. The sort of
    frosting of the appearance is something that
    people a lot of times associate with chronic
    kidney failure, renal failure, certainly someone
    who is requiring dialysis would have that.

    He’s also not moving his arms. I looked at this
    tape all the way through its entire length. He never
    moved his left arm at all. The reason that might
    be important is because people who have had a
    stroke — and certainly people are at increased risk
    of stroke if they also have kidney failure — he
    may have had a stroke and therefore is not
    moving his left side. And in the rest of the
    videotape, he does move his right side a little bit
    more than he does his left. So those are some of
    the things that are sort of “of note” here in this
    more recent videotape.

    ZAHN: I think we need to remind the viewers
    once again that the president of Pakistan talked
    about [bin Laden] importing two dialysis
    machines into Afghanistan. Of course, no one
    other than the president of Pakistan right now is
    confirming that [bin Laden] in fact needed
    dialysis.

    GUPTA: That’s right. And again, renal dialysis –
    talking about hemodialysis — is something that
    really is reserved for patients in end-stage renal
    failure. That means their kidneys have just
    completely shut down.

    Israeli intelligence: Bin Laden is dead, heir has been chosen
    SPECIAL TO WORLD TRIBUNE.COM
    Wednesday, October 16, 2002

    TEL AVIV Osama Bin Laden appears to be dead but his colleagues have decided that Al Qaida and its insurgency campaign against the United States will continue, Israeli intelligence sources said.

    Al Qaida terrorists have launched a new campaign of economic warfare and are targeting shipping in the Middle East, according to U.S. intelligence officials.

    The Israeli sources said Israel and the United States assess that Bin Laden probably died in the U.S. military campaign in Afghanistan in December. They said the emergence of new messages by Bin Laden are probably fabrications, Middle East Newsline reported.

    But Bin Laden’s heir has been chosen and his colleagues have decided to resume Al Qaida’s offensive against the United States and Western allies, the sources said.

    They said the organization regards the United States as the main target followed by Israel. “In this case, it doesn’t matter whether Bin Laden is alive or not,” a senior Israeli intelligence source said. “The organization goes on with help from key people.”

    The sources said Al Qaida has already determined Bin Laden’s heir. They said the heir has not been identified, but is probably not Bin Laden’s son, Saad. Saad is said to be in his 20s and ranked within the top 20 members of Al Qaida.

    Earlier this week, Bin Laden’s deputy, Ayman Zawahiri, was said to have released a videotape in which he claims that the Al Qaida leader is alive and functioning. Bin Laden’s voice was not heard on the tape.

    A senior Bush administration economic official said last week that another major Al Qaida attack anywhere in the world could have devastating economic repercussions.

    The FBI warned last week that Al Qaida may be preparing for a major attack. The warning followed the release of an audio tape featuring the voice of Zawahiri.

    Bombings in Bali aimed at tourists, an attack on U.S. soldiers training in Kuwait and the bombing of a French tanker in Yemen are signs of the new campaign, Geostrategy-Direct.com reported in its Oct. 22 edition.

    The first attack was carried out last week with the Al Qaida terrorist attack on the French tanker Limburg, a 157,000-ton ultra large crude oil carrier, that was bombed as it picked up a pilot before mooring at the Yemeni port of al Shihr.

    One crew member was killed and others were injured in the blast.

    According to intelligence officials, a small boat approached at high speed from the starboard side of the ship and detonated a large explosive device.

    A week earlier, the Office of Naval Intelligence issued an alert to ships in the Middle East to be alert for Al Qaida terrorist attacks.
