Bin Laden Was Living Near Golf Course
By mustang6560 on 5/2/11
The world thought Osama bin Laden was hiding out in a cave on the rugged Pakistani border. But in reality, he was living in a 3,000 square foot compound near a golf course.

If you type Abbottābad, Pakistan in Googlemaps (or Bing), you'll see Abbottābad Golf Club. I don't think bin Laden was playing much golf (as it's a western game and he hated the west), but the neighborhood he was "hiding" out in didn't look very rugged.

We've been chasing Osama for nearly half of my life and the chase is finally over. The day was so important in history that President Obama cut his golf round short yesterday and only played 9-holes.

Something interesting to read. Check out Sohaib Athar's Twitter. He unknowingly live tweeted during the attack on bin Laden's compound.

Before they dumped that monster's body at sea, a U.S. Team 6 SEAL could have taken it to that golf course and used UBL's nose for a tee... ...and then taken a big divot with a 6-iron, of course. :)

I heard that a local judge in Pakistan ordered bin Laden to carry out a community service sentence at the nearby golf course. His mission was to eradicate a gopher that was destoying the grounds. Oddly enough the gopher's initials are GWB.

I think he was living near a Five Arab Brothers Hood Falafel Shop too.
I don't get the significance.

@ Kurt - is that a rip on Five guys burgers? i like them :( .. also, does this actually MEAN anything other than some guy is dead? I mean --- is gas gonna go down or what?
Kurt the Knife says:
yep, 5 guys, 5 brothers. Not derogatory. just don't get the significance of his compound being near a golf course. Gas prices won't be affected nor will his death make much difference in the global scheme. Al Qaida has a succession list a mile long.
