Osama Bin Laden ordered a satellite TV dish to watch 9/11 attacks… but couldn’t get a signal

Bin Laden also instructed Mr Al Bahri to shoot him dead if he was on the verge of being captured by Western forces, the former bodyguard said.

‘I would rather receive two bullets in the head than to be taken prisoner,’ he told him. ‘I want to die a martyr, but certainly not in prison.’

Didn’t the liberals tell me that Bush was the only one who knew beforehand…?

These days, I’m sure Osama remembers 9/11 much better than most Americans do.

Moment of horror: Bin Laden was unable to watch the attacks on the World Trade Center because he couldn’t get a television signal

Osama Bin Laden requested a satellite TV dish be installed in his Afghanistan hideaway so he could watch the September 11, 2001 terror attacks as they happened, according to his former bodyguard.

But the Al Qaeda leader was unable to get a signal in the mountainous terrain surrounding his base in Kandahar so couldn’t watch the two hijacked planes hit the World Trade Center in New York, claimed Nasser Al Bahri.

The 37-year-old said: ‘He asked for satellite TV to be able to follow the bombing.’

Mr Al Bahri, who was known as Abu Jandal (The Killer), served Bin Laden for three years before being arrested in Yemen ahead of the 9/11 attacks.

But he claims to know Bin Laden told his media chief Hassan Al-Bahloul: ‘It is very important that we are able to watch the news today.’
