A few conflicting reports...
Three US officials confirmed Hamza's death to a TV station while another report says he died in the last two years.
NBC reported on Wednesday that three US officials had confirmed they had information of Hamza bin Laden's death, but gave no details of the date or place, and did not indicate if they had confirmed the information.
The New York Times newspaper also reported that the US had a role in the operation that led to Hamza's death, which it said took place in the past two years.
Al Jazeera could not independently confirm the report at the time this story was published.
And from BBC
Hamza Bin Laden, the son of al-Qaeda founder Osama Bin Laden, died in an air strike, US media outlets report, citing intelligence officials.
The place and date of death were unclear. The Pentagon did not comment.
Bin Laden, thought to be aged about 30, had released audio and video messages calling for attacks on the US and other countries.
As recently as February, the US government offered $1m (£825,000) for
Hamza bin Laden, the son of the late al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, is reported dead, according to multiple news organizations citing U.S. officials.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, officials said Hamza bin Laden was killed during the first two years of the Trump administration, but they did not disclose where or exactly when the operation occurred, nor what role the U.S government played, according to the New York Times. They said he was killed before February 2019 when the State Department announced a $1 million reward for information about his whereabouts before U.S. officials could confirm his death.
The death of Osama bin Laden's heir was first reported by NBC News.
President Trump was asked by reporters about it on Wednesday, but he said only, "I don't want to comment on that."
WASHINGTON — The United States has obtained intelligence that the son and potential successor of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Hamza bin Laden, is dead, according to three U.S. officials.
The officials would not provide details of how Hamza bin Laden died or if the U.S. played a role in his death. The death occurred some time in the past two years, said the officials, but confirmation came only recently.
Asked by reporters on Wednesday whether the U.S. had intelligence that Hamza is dead, President Donald Trump said, "I don't want to comment on that."
So, what do you think? Is he dead? and When?
Have no idea! POTUS says no comment. If he is dead this would be a good thing.
Osama bin Laden, Hazma bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Ayatollah Khomeini, Ayatollah Khamene'i, not a single one of these makes an iota of difference, alive or dead is of no consequence. None of these Islamist's are the effect and or cause of the root problem for the world or for the West, i.e., the United States of America. When one Islamist leader passes, another will if fact take his place. The international terrorist groups like ISIS (ISIL), Al Qaeda, Al Shabaab, Boko Haram, Hezbollah & Taliban, just to name a few, once again for all intents and purposes every one is irrelevant on it's own. But together, they all represent the scourge of humanity around the globe. The one anchor all these organizations and individuals share, is Islam. World leaders including our United States politicians from both sides of the aisle repeatedly refer to these terrorist entities as "Radical Muslims or Radical Islam". Simply using the identifier word "RADICAL", is the P.C. way of pussy footing around the truth, dancing with the Devil so to speak. Anyone who refers to these "evil doers" as radical Muslims or radical Islam has never studied the Geo-political organization of Islam. Islam, under the guise of religion hides it's political agenda of world domination. Doesn't anyone wonder why Muslims do not assimilate to the cultures and nations they infiltrate and take over? I have for many years studied Islamic domination of Europe. Ask yourselves why haven't Muslims in the U.K. assimilated to the culture there, or in Germany, or Spain or France. It is not Islamic intention to assimilate to other cultures, but instead, the Islamic ideology is thrust upon the cultures and people who Islamic leaders and followers dominate. Playing victim, demanding refugee status, begging to be taken in, fed, clothed, and feigning misunderstanding, Islam will by attrition control the nations that accept, invite and cater to them.
Make no mistake, the United States is a top priority on the Islamic domination hit list. Our neighbors to the North (Canada) have already succumbed to many facets of Islamic Muslim demands. In England there are now two sets of laws, one Islamic and one Western. There are at the very least 147 (?) Sharia Courts active in the U.K. Ask yourself why! Because Islam will never submit to assimilation, the Islamic culture is a culture unto itself and Muslims are forbidden to assimilate. Today, right here in the United States we have 3 Islamist's duly elected to congress. Islamist's who hate Christians, Jews and any other people they determine through their sick twisted ideology to be "Infidel". They were not sworn in with their hand on the Bible, but instead on the Quran. The Quran forbids allegiance to any belief but Islam, the Quran is the complete antithesis to the U.S. Constitution. It would be advantageous for all American citizens to know that "Islam" is the only officially protected religion in America. With the oncoming Socialists moving this nation to truly crazy insane Liberal ideas, that will in fact bring our economy to it's knees and result in America becoming just another 3rd world country. Who do you think is waiting in the wings to gather the remnants of this once greatest nation the world has ever seen? If you guessed Islam, you are 100% correct. Islam isn't going away, the ideology will not vanish if it is ignored, it will continue to grow and strengthen. Islam must be recognized for what it is, called out and exposed, or Islamic domination is on America's horizon.
"You knew I was a snake when you took me in." Never has a statement of tale of woe been so true as it is today in our Republic.
Good post Jerome. I'm guilty of referring to Islam as radical when in fact it is most evil. We the USA is at war with the evil.I feel fortunate that we conservatives and R's here in AZ have two great people who speak at forums and events educating our community on the dangers of this evil.
