LAHORE: The US helicopter ‘accident’ in East Afghanistan in which 25 Navy SEALs perished has given rise to a number of questions.


According to an Indian TV channel, the presence of as many as 25 SEALs in the same helicopter has astonished everyone. It is significant that 20 out of these 25 Navy SEALs were those who had taken part in Abbottabad ‘Get Osama Operation’. It is worth mentioning that neither any video of Osama Bin Laden’s killing has surfaced nor have any photographs been released.


The only proof of the death of Osama Bin Laden (OBL) were the 20 Navy SEALs reportedly on board this helicopter and all of them died. Thus all proof of the death of Osama bin Laden have disappeared, according to the Indian report. Now what US Secretary of Defence says will be final and will have to be accepted.


In the past too there have been incidents that eyewitnesses of US operations and their confidants have been killed in ‘accidents’.


The elimination of eyewitnesses of OBL’s death has shaken the American credibility.


All the 20 SEALs were made to board the same helicopter. All of them perished in the disaster bringing an end to all the proofs about the death of OBL.


Now no one can say with certitude whether the helicopter had in fact met an accident or there were some other reasons of its destruction, said the report.
