I got back from the US not long ago, and it couldn’t have been better timing since my first day there was an epic day of celebration – Good job Obama, goodbye Osama.
I’m sure all of you would have been well-informed of the documented attack by now, but if you were a little deluded the way I was, don’t feel silly. Here’s more details of the reality VS the imaginary below… It’s exactly as how I LOL-ed on my friend’s blog post.
America caught and shot Osama bin Laden in a rundown, decrepit compound, lacking any direct contact with the outside world.
But in 2001, the Times of London (and the Pentagon) thought he was living in a comic villain’s super fortress, a kind of bunker that would make even Lex Luthor blush.
What was described in this mystical underground oasis:
“… Ventilation system to allow people to breathe and to carry on. An arms and ammunition depot. And you can see here the exits leading into it and the entrances large enough to drive trucks and cars and even tanks. And its own hydroelectric power to help keep lights on, even computer systems and telephone systems.”
That’s some imagination and it was taken pretty damn seriously too, but sadly he was found in a crappy house that resembled many Hotel 81s.
