An exclusive behind the scene looks reveals the U.S.' unsung heroes, an elite band of about 2,400 special operators most famously responsible for the 2011 raid that led to the capture of Osama bin Laden.
He was born in the bin Laden family to billionaire Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden in Saudi Arabia. He studied there in college until 1979, when he joined the mujahideen forces in Pakistan against the Soviets in Afghanistan. He helped to fund the mujahideen by funneling arms, money and fighters from the Arab world into Afghanistan, also gaining popularity from many Arabs. In 1988, he formed al-Qaeda. He was banished from Saudi Arabia in 1992, and shifted his base to Sudan, until US pressure forced him to leave Sudan in 1996. After establishing a new base in Afghanistan, he declared a war against the United States, initiating a series of bombings and related attacks.
AN Irish Muslim once arrested for allegedly threatening to kill Barack Obama says the Boston bombers gave Americans “a taste of their own medicine”.
Dubliner Khalid Kelly, 46, refused to condemn Chechen terror brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Three people, including an eight-year-old boy, were killed and more than 260 wounded when two devices exploded at the Boston Marathon on April 15. Tamerlan, 26, was later killed during a shootout with cops while Dzhokhar, 19, is in custody.
But convert Terence Kelly — nicknamed Taliban Terry — said he was not surprised by the attack, the first on US soil since 9/11. And he insisted Americans should be thankful there were not MORE deaths.
Kelly told the Irish Sun: “Thousands of Muslims are being killed every day from Syria to Afghanistan.
“A lot of them are being murdered at the hands of the Americans, and they never have a minute’s silence.
“Where are the tears for these people? Three people get killed and they have a big day of remembrance. They should remember the people they are killing.
“This is a war and they should be thankful that it wasn’t more.”
And extremist Kelly warned that attacks will continue as long as the US continues to exert its dominance on Muslim lands.
He said: “Sheikh Osama Bin Laden said that until the last soldier leaves our land, you will never enjoy one day of security. And his words are coming through now.
“They are worried all the time and they should be worried. As long as you are killing people, then you will be killed.
“This is a taste of the same medicine that America is dishing out around the world.”
Born Terence Kelly, from the Liberties area of the capital, he converted to Islam while serving a jail sentence in Saudi Arabia for illegally distilling and selling alcohol.
He later travelled to Pakistan, where he claims he trained with tribal warlords with the intention of going to Afghanistan.
Kelly was arrested by gardai in May 2011 following a newspaper interview when he said al-Qaeda had chosen Ireland as a perfect place to launch an attack on Obama. He has since denied those claims. Speaking this week, Kelly — who insisted that Ireland would NOT be a legitimate al-Qaeda target — compared the warped killers involved in the London and New York attacks to Irish hero Michael Collins. He added: “Michael Collins was celebrated on the Late Late Show a few years ago as a hero, but 100 years ago he was a terrorist.
“At a later stage, the IRA said it would have a bigger effect on the English if we bombed them at home. And it did.
“They went to London and it was very effective. I think that is what is happening at the moment. You have come to our homeland and are bombing and killing Muslims.
“If people cannot get to the Jihad, what are they going to do? They are going to fight the enemy where they can find them.
“Whether it is right or not I don’t know, but I’m telling you what is happening. And in America, where they have easy access to weapons, it’s honestly surprising that it’s not happening every week.”
