NEW DELHI: The United State of America claims to have killed dreaded terrorist Osama Bin Laden in 2011 however, shocking reports have erupted which say that the mastermind behind 9/11 attacks is still alive and living in Bahamas. Not only this, a report also said that Osama is being protected and pampered by American external spy agency the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
These reported started doing rounds on Sunday evening when Edward Joseph Snowden, a whistleblower who leaked classified information from the US National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013, was quoted by a website as saying that Osama was hiding in the Bahamas under CIA’s protection.
In his claims published in the report on, Snowden said that he has some documents that prove that Osama bin Laden is still on the CIA’s payroll.
The report also added that Osama continues to receive an amount of over $100,000 a month that is directly transferred to his account. It quotes him saying, “I have documents showing that Bin Laden is still on the CIA’s payroll. He is still receiving more than $100,000 a month, which are being transferred through some front businesses and organizations, directly to his Nassau bank account. I am not certain where he is now, but in 2013, he was living quietly in his villa with five of his wives and many children.”
“They organized his fake death with the collaboration of the Pakistani Secret services, and he simply abandoned his cover. Since everyone believes he is dead, nobody’s looking for him, so it was pretty easy to disappear. Without the beard and the military jacket, nobody recognizes him,” Snowden said in the report.
However, the cover was blown after it was found that the website that published the article was a satire organization. Osama bin Laden was killed on May 2, 2011 in the Abottabad region of Pakistan in a highly secretive mission carried by the US Navy Seal Team 6. 
Snowden is currently an escapee and fled the USA after leaking documents regarding the NSA’s surveillance programme.
