Special guns for killing bin Laden
Osama bin Laden has no intention of being taken alive and has designated a "special gun" to be shot in the event of imminent capture, one of the al-Qaeda chief's former bodyguards says.This is not a particularly new revelation, but it gives me an opportunity to say that the special forces have many special weapons that can use to kill this odious person. Also it is no revelation tht Osama would like to murder more Americans. If he could he would.
Abu Jandal, who was with bin Laden in Afghanistan from 1996 to 2000, told the CBS news program 60 Minutes that his old boss had given strict instructions on what should happen if he was cornered.
"If he was going to be captured, Sheik Osama prefers to be killed," Jandal said in the interview, to be broadcast tomorrow. "There was a special gun to be used if Sheik Osama bin Laden was attacked and we were unable to save him, in which case I would have to kill him."
Jandal, who lives in Yemen, said he believed bin Laden was hiding in Afghanistan rather than Pakistan and warned that his most recent threats of another terrorist strike on the US should be taken very seriously.
