US National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden, has made a new controversial claim yesterday, saying that he possessed some classified information proving that Osama Bin Laden is still alive and living in Newry. Snowden, who lives as a fugitive in Russia after leaking documents about the NSA’s surveillance programs has made some previously unreported allegations about the famous terrorist, Osama Bin Laden, during an interview with the Moscow Tribune.
According to him, not only is Bin Laden still alive, but he is living a lavish lifestyle in Newry, thanks to regular payments from the CIA and is also claiming Jobseekers Allowance signing on once a fortnight at Bridge Street dole office.
“I have documents showing that Bin Laden is still on the CIA’s payroll,” claims Edward Snowden. “He is still receiving more than $100,000 a month, which is being transferred through some front businesses and organizations, directly to his Newry First Trust bank account. I am not certain where he is now, but last month he was living quietly in his house in Parkhead with five of his wives and 8 of his children.”
