Photos of Osama Bin Laden’s Compound

Date: May / 02 / 2011 + Comments: 2

Osama Bin Laden was living for the past few years not in a cave as many thought, but in a relatively luxurious compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

The mansion was worth an estimated $1 million dollars. Constructed in 2005, it was eight times larger than nearby homes. It was protected by concrete walls and barbed wire.

22 people lived in the mansion and all of them were killed, according to military reports.

    The google earth location doesn’t look anything like the location in the image released by the government.

    compare the two. http://news.yahoo.com/video/world-15749633/25090486#video=25087015

    After President Obama announced the death of Osama Bin Laden, the exact location of its 1 million dollars compound was showed in Google Maps. The September 11 mastermind was hiding out in a mansion in Abbottabad, Pakistan, about 80 miles north of Islamabad.

    Bin Laden’s compound is just north, of a hospital for women and children and a cinema. About 800 feet to the west is the Cantt Police Station.

    If the U.S. had prior knowledge of the house layout and were able to construct a practice structure to rehears in where and how did they get a hold of the architectural drawings and who arranged construction and paid for it? By the way I think you can get a nicer looking place for a million bucks especially in that part of the world.
