Edward Snowden claiming Osama bin Laden is still alive
Edward Snowden is claiming that Osama bin Laden, who was supposedly killed in Pakistan in 2011 by US Special forces, was living in the Bahamas. He made these claims in an interview with the Moscow Tribune.
Snowden has claimed that not only is Osama alive and living in the Bahamas but that he is also on the payroll of the CIA. He claims that Osama was transported with his family to an undisclosed location in the Bahamas.
While Snowden’s claims are believed to be of some merit, him being a former CIA agent, it is to be kept in mind that Edward Snowden is a fugitive of the law from the United States. He is living as a fugitive under the territorial jurisdiction of the Russian state. Snowden being under the protection of the Russian agency is also something to be kept in consideration.
The credibility of Snowden’s claim is difficult to determine. While he does claim to have documentation to back his statements, until his claims are verified by a neutral third party, one cannot say if this is some sort of ploy of the Russian agency.

bin Laden lives?

Maybe Snowden has been reading the speculative book Osama's Angel by Michael McWilliams where the author says that bin Laden was captured at Abbottabad and interrogated in Germany. The story meshes with all the known happenings both before and after the raid and explains ho and why the Chinook filled with the SEALs that captured bin Laden was shot down shortly after the raid.

Bin Laden

I would take Snowden's word over that of ANY government, anyday. Snowden has a conscience and is interested in revealing the truth. Governments are run by sociopaths with a vested interest in hiding the truth. Thank you, Mr. Snowden - again!

he's alive and well

i don't see dead people and the man is alive and well and up to his old tricks! i never left my home in Tn to see him -a trick he learned from the CIA. He is no friend to America and once again by showing a terrorist their intelligence he is using it, selling it and using it against them. What do you expect?
