TEHRAN — Al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden was a prisoner in US custody for “sometime” before he was killed by the American military, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday.
“I have exact information that bin Laden was held by the American military for sometime… until the day they killed him he was a prisoner held by them,” the hardline president said in a live interview on Iranian state television.
“Please pay attention. This is important. He was held by them for sometime. They made him sick and while he was sick they killed him,” Ahmadinejad added.
Phi Beta Iota: We support an International Tribunal to investigate the alleged assassination of Osama Bin Laden, similar to the International Tribunal convened to investigate the deal of the Lebanese Prime Minister. At this time we believe that Bin Laden has been dead for several years if not a decade, and that “patsies” were put in place by CIA for the SEALS to kill–unarmed patsies. We believe everything the SEALS found at the “safehouse” was prepared by CIA and is fraudulent. We could be wrong. We certain of one thing only: the US public cannot trust its government to tell the truth.
