Did SEAL Team 6 miss OBL diary?

The E-Ring:

U.S. intelligence and military officials are shaking their heads at a news report out of Pakistan this week claiming that Pakistani authorities possess a heretofore unknown personal diary of Osama bin Laden’s found at the terrorist’s Abbottabad compound after U.S. Navy SEALs completed their mission to kill the al Qaeda leader, but before the compound was demolished last year.

The U.S. team of 79 people, including SEAL Team 6, returned from the historic assault inside Pakistan on May 2, 2011, with a large trove of documents, including a handwritten diary of bin Laden’s that included operational instructions to the dispersed al Qaeda network, several U.S. news agencies reported at the time.

But the mention of a new bin Laden diary this week turned a few heads. The article, first published in The News International, which claims to be Pakistan’s largest English-language newspaper, and picked up by other South Asian news outlets, claims that in the diary bin Laden reveals he had bribed a local tax collector to permit the construction of the three-story building and high-walled compound in which the world’s most wanted terrorist hid for his final days.

“Pakistani officials discovered a diary in which Osama had described that he had to bribe the revenue officials for construction of his compound, which is a unique incident in the history when the Patwari [village accountant] had taken bribe from the most-wanted terrorist of the world,” the story reads.

“The Patwari was in complete ignorance about the identity of Osama when he was taking the bribe from him. But the diaries, which were translated, revealed that Osama was not only well aware of this practice but the bribe was also given with his permission.”

According to the story, the Patwari has been “arrested and investigated.”

The News International often publishes stories that align with the interest of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency, or ISI. But several U.S. intelligence and military officials with intimate knowledge of the mission contacted by the E-Ring were unaware of the purported diary.

“We do not have any way of knowing what information may have been missed during the sweep after the raid,” said Ken McGraw, deputy public affairs officer at U.S. Special Operations Command, which oversaw the SEAL team that conducted the raid and brought back a trove of documents and computer files after reportedly an estimated 38 minutes on the ground. “Special Operations Forces turn over all information collected during an operation to the intelligence community.”

A U.S. intelligence official with intimate knowledge of the raid, speaking anonymously, told the E-Ring, “I’m unaware of any such diary that was left at the Abbottabad compound.”

    The only team that could have pulled this off would have been a Marine Recon team. “SSD” 3rd Recon. Oh! Do any of you know what “SSD” stands for? The Marines would have done the job right the first time and not left an advanced tactical helicopter to be turned over to the Chinese for intel. Yes, the navy left a helicopter-did you forget already or did the government chop that photograph?

    They never found his kidney dialysis equipment is what I’ve long questioned.

    That wasn’t OBL. OBL died either in massive bombings at Tora Bora, or sometime in the interim of kidney failure.

    The news events for the last 4 years are a fiction.

    Does anyone here think we’re going to find out anything more (of substance) regarding Adam Lanza? We know NOTHING. And the entire MSM is utterly and completely incurious — and totally and worshipfully dedicated to The Narrative.

  3. is in it a control on what they want the people to know?
    a control of the truth like the BENGHASI MASSACRE,
    AND IT SEEM TO BE TARGETING REPEATETIVE EVENT WHERE THE NAVY SEALS
    ARE INVOLVED,
    JUST THINK ABOUT THE PLOT MADE WITH THE SEALS WHICH HELICOPTER WAS SHOT
    KILLING 30 OF THEM, it was said the enemy had been tip about the helicopter,he was in position in advance,
    AND ALL WHICH FOLLOWED BECAUSE THE RETIRE SEAL WROTE THE BOOK,
    RESULTING IN HIM GETTING ACCUSE UNFAIRLY, BECAUSE HE WAS THE TARGET INNOCENT TRYING TO TELL THE REAL TRUTH TO AMERICANS, WHO HAD READ AND HEARD SO MANY LIES FROM THE MEDIAS AND EVEN THE WHITE HOUSE,
    THEY JUST ENDED AN OPERATION TO SAVE THOSE TWO PERSONS IN ANOTHER COUNTRY KNOWN VERY DANGEROUS,
    AND TWO HOSTAGES TAKEN 3 MONTHS BEFORE HOW COME IT TOOK SO LONG TO DECIDE JUST THE SAME DAY OF THE OPERATION 3 MONTHS LATE.
    GOOD THAT NOTING HAPPENED TO THEM, I WOULD HAVE BEEN THINKING THAT
    THE LEADER IS TARGETING THE SEALS FOR REVENGE, BECAUSE THEY STOOD UP TO LIES,
    WE MUST KEEP AN EYE ON THEM , BECAUSE THEY ARE SO PRECIOUS FOR AMERICA TO HAVE
    AND CANNOT AFFORD TO LOOSE THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE OF AMERICA
    WE MUST PROTECT THE PROTECTORS

    True! According to the media he was in renal failure and on kidney dialysis 3 days a week. Nothing of the dialysis A-V shunts in his arms on the informal autopsy. Wonder why? Never existed. To educate an individual is treason according to the current administration: “Education is dangerous – Every educated person is a future enemy of the State”. Suprise, America had not figured this out, yet. The real trap is your cell phone and emails. Every email you have ever sent or will send is open to terrorist investigation. As you should all recall, there are no criteria to place you on the idiots “kill list”. Just think, in the not to distant future they will be arrested, detained, and executed you for a thought-it is coming. If you are not a socialist democ”rat”, you are executed. How simple does it get?

  5. a diary like that would not just lay inside a drawer,
    it could have been put on a secret place, inside the wall or under the floor in a trap specially made for his secrets killing decision plans.

    PLUS, IF THERE WAS 79 SEALS IN THAT OPERATION, AND THEY LOST AN HELICOPTER,
    IT MEAN THE 79 RETURNED IN ONE ONLY HELICOPTER PLUS ALL THE PAPER AND STUFF THEY FOUND,
    IS THAT DOABLE,
    OOPS I forgot the body,
    and they from there went straight to dump the body in the water with that loaded helicopter full of the 79 SEALS?
    DOES IT MAKE SENSE?
    WE MUST BUY THE BOOK WRITTEN BY THE RETIRED SEAL,
    ON WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

    If a ”diary” has turned up now, it is most likely a forgery.
    Just like all those so-called “ancient finds” from Muslim lands that “prove” Jesus married or was ”gay.”

    The stories regarding bin Laden’s state of health are myths. From kidney disease and dialysis to Marfan’s syndrome, these are urban legend or propaganda. Kinda like reports of Zarqawi’s leg being amputated in Baghdad. Yet we don’t really question that Zarqawi was killed in 2006, do we?

    @ilovebeeswarzone: 79 SEALs did not storm the Compound. But SEAL Team 6 was part of the 79-man operation.
