Bounties: US Offers $10 Million Bounty For 2008 Mumbai Terrorist– Haviz Mohammad Saeed

In Washington, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters Tuesday the bounty on Saeed is about “justice being done” and that there should be no impunity for those who kill Americans overseas. She emphasized that the reward was not just for information leading to Saeed’s arrest, but also for information leading to his conviction.

Man, let’s get this guy. This is also a great way to snub Pakistan (again, because they deserve it for hiding Bin Laden all of these years and supporting the Taliban) and show some support for India (who does deserve our support and would tick off Pakistan), by helping to nab this guy.  He has been pretty open in Pakistan and so he shouldn’t be hard to find.

What is key with this bounty though, is that the US wants information that will lead to his location and arrest/conviction. So you might be able to locate him, but in order to get the full amount, I think we want a little bit more. I would say information leading to arrest and conviction would be far more valuable in this deal and would probably give that tipster the full amount.

But of course this whole bounty program is a contradiction in terms. By all intents and purposes, this is a bounty.  According to the Rewards for Justice FAQ, bounty hunting is not prohibited with this deal though. So could a company find the guy and get all of the juice on him, and then find some random person to be the ‘lone individual’ to report the whole thing?  I don’t get that.

By offering a reward, aren’t you encouraging bounty hunters?

We strongly discourage bounty hunters and other non-government individuals from pursuing the capture of terrorists; instead, RFJ provides rewards for information that will enable appropriate government authorities to locate and apprehend such individuals.

To me, the DoS should be up front and purposeful about promoting bounty hunting. It is a form of offense industry that if properly constructed, will definitely produce results. At this time, their Rewards For Justice program is terribly inefficient and poorly set up.

They should be reaching out to all and any parties/groups/individuals/companies, and providing a set of rules and licenses in order for them to do what they need to do to find these folks. Issue a Letter of Marque and Reprisal–with an emphasis on ‘reprisal’ and tell these folks to get bonded, and then let them hunt. Matter of fact, let hundreds of groups go hunting, all being innovative and motivated, and turn ol’ Haviz Mohammad Saeed and others like him into a prize. But that would first require the DoS and governments to stop demonizing bounty hunters and utility….. –Matt

Funny Stuff: Advertising On Usama Bin Laden’s Compound Wall In Abbottabad?

I read today that PETA has approached Pakistan to ask if they could advertise on the compound wall of Usama Bin Laden’s house in Abbottabad. Personally, I think they should deny it and bulldoze the compound.  But if Pakistan did sell advertising space on that wall?…… –Matt

Funny Stuff: Pornography Found In Usama Bin Laden’s Hideout

Now this is funny!  So I wonder what kind of stuff he had….or I mean…his ‘sons’ had? (wink, wink….) Either way, there was pornography found at the UBL mansion and that is hilarious. Al Qaeda’s head honcho was a smut peddler!!!

Here is the other angle on this. Because like with the whole controversy about the ‘gun’ used to kill UBL and all that attention brought to the manufacturers, the favorite porn of UBL and family would probably increase the sales of whatever company produced it and make the actors equally famous (or infamous). lol –Matt

Exclusive: Pornography found in bin Laden hideout: officials
May 13, 2011
By Mark Hosenball and Tabassum Zakaria
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A stash of pornography was found in the hideout of Osama bin Laden by the U.S. commandos who killed him, current and former U.S. officials said on Friday.
The pornography recovered in bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, consists of modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive, according to the officials, who discussed the discovery with Reuters on condition of anonymity.
The officials said they were not yet sure precisely where in the compound the pornography was discovered or who had been viewing it. Specifically, the officials said they did not know if bin Laden himself had acquired or viewed the materials.
Reports from Abbottabad have said that bin Laden’s compound was cut off from the Internet or other hard-wired communications networks. It is unclear how compound residents would have acquired the pornography.
But a video released by the Obama administration confiscated from the compound showed bin Laden watching pictures of himself on a TV screen, indicating that the compound was equipped with video playback equipment.
Materials carted away from the compound by the U.S. commandos included digital thumb drives, which U.S. officials believe may have been a principal means by which couriers carried electronic messages to and from the late al Qaeda leader.
Three other U.S. officials familiar with evidence gathered during investigations of other Islamic militants said the discovery of pornography is not uncommon in such cases.

Funny Stuff: Feral Jundi Had Some ‘Potential’ Viewers In Abbottabad, Pakistan

This is funny.  Over the course of this blog’s history, I have had five visits from Abbottabad Pakistan according to my Google Analytics. They found the site through Google, and these are the dates they visited.

Sept 28, 2010
August 16, 2010
June 30, 2010
April 7, 2010
October 8, 2009

Now what I did was to go back to each of these dates and see what stories they were attracted to.  Well what I found out was that it wasn’t a story they clicked on, but a Funny Stuff poster I posted a long time ago called Potential.  I posted this poster to show how ridiculous our enemy was, and how little regard they had for human life.  So did Bin Laden or any of his clowns check out the poster?  It is a good possibility because on those dates, there wasn’t anything of significance interest to their efforts, and the Potential Poster had top viewing. lol

The reason for that is because it reached the first page of Google Images for the search ‘funny stuff’.  Thousands of people over the course of the image’s history have viewed the thing because of it’s placement in the image search.  And it looks like I was able to piss off five folks with that ultra-offensive poster.  Score!!!  The best part is that thing will continue to do it’s damage to the psyche of booger eaters world wide. hee hee –Matt

Edit: Just so folks know, I was not the original creator of this poster.  I just found it floating around out there on the internet and thought it was pretty funny.

Al Qaeda: Usama Bin Laden Is Dead!!!!

This is incredible news, and I am writing this as it is coming over the news. Usama Bin Laden is dead and it sounds like his body has been recovered, and identification has been made. President Obama is soon to come on the television and make the announcement. This is such awesome news.

By the way, all of Al Qaeda and it’s supporters better watch out–because you are next!…… –Matt

Edit: An American team was tasked with killing or capturing UBL at a mansion in Abbottabad, Pakistan. There was a firefight, and OBL was killed in the firefight. The body was identified by DNA and all of this was confirmed by President Obama in his speech.

Edit: CNN Reports that it was Navy SEALs that came in by helicopter to assault the mansion that UBL was at. Supposedly one of UBL’s sons was killed in the attack as well.
