Bin Laden’s son asked US for death certificate

A son of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden asked the United States for a death certificate after US Navy SEALS killed him reports quoting a letter released by WikiLeaks said.
The letter, stating it is from the US embassy in Riyadh, is among about 70,000 documents dubbed "The Saudi Cables" the whistleblower website published.
The letter is signed by Glen Keiser, the US consul general in Riyadh and addressed to Abdullah bin Laden on September 9, 2011 about four months after a US raid killed his father in Pakistan after a decade-long manhunt.
"I have received your request for a death certificate for your father, Usama bin Laden," Keiser wrote.
Legal experts in the State Department advised that no such document was issued, he said.
"This is consistent with regular practice for individuals killed in the course of military operations."
Instead, Keiser provided Abdullah bin Laden with US court records in which officials confirmed his father's death and, as a result, dropped a criminal case against him.
"I hope that these US government documents are of assistance to you and your family," Keiser said.
The bin Ladens are a prominent Saudi business family. The kingdom stripped Osama bin Laden of citizenship in 1994.

  3. Asking for Bin Laden's death certificate is like asking for Obama's birth certificate. Neither will ever be furnished because neither exist.

  4. Uh, yeah. We believes yas. Let's see...the FBI didn't have bin Laden on their most wanted list because they had no proof of him doing anything in regards to 911. Although Bin Laden applauded the act, he never took credit. That's kinda funny if you are World Terrorist.

    Sorry, he's Bin Laid in a grave a long time ago.
