In the years since the September 11 attacks, few more chilling documents have emerged than "Military Studies in the Jihad Against the Tyrants," a how-to terrorism manual that investigators believe has been used by followers of Osama bin Laden.
The 180-page volume, seized from the Manchester, England home of a bin Laden disciple, offers jihad members guidance on subjects such as assassination, forging documents, and preparing poisons in its 18 chapters. The terrorism manual was placed into evidence last year by prosecutors during the federal trial of four men accused of involvement in the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania (the below English translation was also placed in evidence). All four defendants were convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
On May 2, 2011, U.S. Special Forces raided an al-Qaeda compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and killed the world’s most wanted terrorist: Osama bin Laden. The entire operation, which lasted only 40 minutes from start to finish, was the culmination of years of calculated planning and training. Ultimately, bin Laden was found and killed within nine minutes, and SEAL Team Six was credited with carrying out a nearly flawless mission. Almost 10 years after 9/11, here's what led to the death of Osama bin Laden.
Around 2007, U.S. intelligence officials discovered the name of one of bin Laden’s closest couriers, whom they speculated may have been involved in supporting or harboring the terrorist. By late 2010, analysts were able to link the courier to a large, highly-secured compound in Abbottabad, a town about 35 miles north of Islamabad. The compound’s unusual and extensive security features, along with further intelligence information, prompted suspicion that the residence was Osama bin Laden’s hideout.
On April 29, 2011, President Barack Obama authorized a small special operations team, known as SEAL Team Six, to carry out a raid on the compound. Stealth Black Hawk helicopters took off from Afghanistan, carrying a group of 25 Navy SEALs. The choppers land on the compound in Abbottabad. One helicopter crashed, but there were no injuries. The mission continued, uninterrupted. Osama bin Laden was located on the third floor of the compound and was shot in the head, above the left eye. Sometime during the operation, three other men (including one of bin Laden’s sons) and a woman in the compound are also killed. The team locates and retrieves multiple items from the compound for intelligence investigation. At 4:05 p.m. The first helicopter exits the compound. The team destroys the chopper that crashed. A backup helicopter with the remaining SEAL team members return to Afghanistan. President Obama received further intelligence information that the body killed in the raid is that of bin Laden. President Obama addressed the nation about the raid. Osama bin Laden’s body was buried at sea within 24 hours to comply with Islamic Law. The next day, a DNA test confirmed that the body was indeed that of Osama bin Laden.
In addition to killing the man who was considered the mastermind behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks, U.S. forces snagged valuable items from the compound during the raid. Ten computer hard drives, five computers and more than 100 storage devices were retrieved. Osama bin Laden’s personal journal was also recovered. These materials provided much-needed intelligence about bin Laden’s role within al-Qaeda and the organization’s inner-workings.
The death of Osama bin Laden was a significant victory for the U.S. government and the American people at large. For many families of 9/11 victims, bin Laden’s death symbolized justice and retribution. The terrorist leader was not only a major player within al-Qaeda but also a figurehead that attracted supporters and recruits from around the world. International reactions to bin Laden’s death ranged from favorable to mixed. Some Arab countries and leaders condemned the actions of the United States.
Still, SEAL Team Six’s bold raid to take down bin Laden was an extraordinary operation that most experts regard as a resounding success. But, the war is not over.
While The Smoking Gun has previously published small excerpts from this terror bible, we now present the entire document, a remarkable window into bin Laden's network of cold-blooded fanatics.
