The Interesting, The Strange, The News.

Last Refuge of Osama bin Laden

The last hideout of the United States’ most wanted terrorist, Osama bin Laden, appeared peaceful the day after U.S. Navy SEALs killed bin Laden Monday during a predawn raid on his fortified compound in Abbottabad (map)Pakistan.

It’s shocking that bin Laden was found in this Pakistani army-garrison town just 72 miles (116 kilometers) north of the city of Islamabad, according to Don Belt, National Geographic magazine contributing writer. Belt has briefed the U.S. Congress on Pakistan and visited Abbottabad many times.

That’s because the picturesque town is home to thousands of troops, and it’s neither a Taliban stronghold nor a vast, hard-to-search metropolis.

Sidenote: Me personally, I feel as though there are several things about this incident that don’t seem to add up. There are some inconsistencies I noticed in the official report and it seemed almost like a strategic move as far as politics go. I may be speculating but the truth is always stranger than fiction and everything isn’t what it appears to be. With that said, this is interesting nonetheless.
