Al Qaida confirms Osama Bin Laden’s death…

The world’s most notorious terrorist organization released a statement about the death of their infamous leader. The statement, dated May 3, was the first by the group since Osama Bin Laden was killed by U.S. Navy SEALS in a raid on his hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

“We stress that the blood of the holy warrior sheik, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is precious to us and to all Muslims and will no go in vain,” the statement said. “We will remain, God willing, a curse chasing the Americans and their agents, following them outside and inside their countries..Soon, God willing, their happiness will turn to sadness, their blood will be mingled with their tears.”

The statement also called on the people of Pakistan “where Sheik Osama was killed” to rise up in revolt against its leaders.

The authenticity of the statement could not be confirmed, but was posted on websites where the group traditionally puts its messages. Bin Laden’s successor has not been named but many experts believe his deputy Ayman al-Zawahri will likely take his place.
