    DUBAI: Al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden was betrayed by his deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri who led US forces to his hideout as the two were involved in an intense power struggle, a Saudi newspaper has reported.

    The two top al-Qaida men had differences and the courier who led US forces to bin Laden was working and had more loyalties for Zawahiri, al Watan newspaper reported quoting Arab sources.

    "The Egyptian faction of al-Qaida led by Zawahiri was de facto running the militant group, after bin Laden was taken ill in 2004 and they were trying to take full control," the paper said.

    The courier was a Pakistani national and not a Kuwaiti as the US suspected and the man knew he was being followed but disguised the fact.

    The paper claimed it was Zawahiri's faction which had persuaded Osama to leave tribal areas close to Afghanistan-Pakistan border to take shelter instead in Abbottabad, where he was finally killed by US Seals on Monday.

    The plan to dispose off bin Laden had been hatched by a prominent al-Qaida commander Saif al Adel of Egyptian descent, who returned to Pakistan from Iran, last autumn.

    Al Adel had reportedly escaped to Iran escorting Osama's other son and family members after 9/11.

    Al Adel is a member of the majlis al shura of al-Qaida and a member of its military committee, and he provided military and intelligence training to members of al-Qaida and Egyptian Islamic Jihad in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Sudan, and to anti-UN Somali tribes.

    I have been saying this for quite some time. USA doesn't want total destruction of Al-Qaeda or Taliban, it just wants total control over the two organizations which were originally founded and funded by USA. Rule of Northern Alliance in Afghanistan doesn't suite USA's interests in South Asia. After the fall of Iraq, Iran is a bigger threat to US interests in this region than any other nation or organization. If USA divorces Pakistan now, China will eagerly fill the position. If USA leaves Afghanistan without buying peace with Taliban, it will be Russia and China who will be calling the shots in Afghanistan.

    USA is the last country which might be effected by such organizations like Taliban or LET or Al Qaeda, 9/11 was just an exception. USA used 9/11 as an excuse to invade Iraq. USA is not an emotional country its not even emotional about either 9/11 or Osama, its just using all reasons and tricks to ruthlessly further it's national interest.
