    The figure was revealed by a regional government enquiry, when the Alternative for Germany (AfD) asked about the individual known as Sami A.

    German media has not reported the man’s full name for security reasons. Sami A. has resisted deportation to Tunisia because he says that he could be tortured there.

    According to witness testimony from a German anti-terror trial in 2005, the Tunisian served as one of Bin Laden’s bodyguards in Afghanistan for several months in 2000. He denies that, but judges in Düsseldorf believed the witness.

    Sami A was investigated for alleged Al-Qaeda links in 2006. Bin Laden, leader of Al-Qaeda, was implicated in the 9/11 terror attacks on the US in 2001. He was allegedly shot dead by US special forces in Pakistan in 2011.

    At least three of the alleged 9/11 suicide pilots wielding box cutters were said to be members of an Al-Qaeda cell based in Hamburg, Germany.

    Currently Sami and his family receive an allowance as “refugees” from the German government, Alice Weidel, representative for the AfD in the German parliament, said.

    According to her, Sami together with his wife and four children, who have German citizenship, receives an allowance of roughly 1200 euros. The AfD acquired the information as the result of an official request to the Nordrhein-Westfalen authorities.

    After Bin Laden was allegedly killed in his own residence in 2011, he was hastily buried at sea without an autopsy. Strangely, none of the thousands of crew members on the US vessel witnessed the burial.

    Seymour Hersh, one of the best-sourced journalists in the US, says that the official US government story of Osama Bin Laden’s assassination is “one big lie, not one word of it is true”.

    The SEAL unit tasked with “killing Bin Laden”, mysteriously all died in a helicopter crash.

    For a while there were news reports that the families of these dead SEALS rejected the government’s official account. Moreover, the families reported receiving messages from the SEALs that suddenly they felt threatened and did not know why. The SEALs had been asking one another: “Were you on the Bin Laden mission?” Apparently, none were. And to keep this a secret, the SEALs were killed, Paul Craig Roberts, a FreeWestMedia contributor believes.

    In an interview with Bin Laden, conducted by the Karachi, Pakistan, daily newspaper, Ummat and published on September 28, 2001, 17 days after the alleged, but unsubstantiated, Al Qaeda attack of September 11, 2001, revealed that the alleged “mastermind” of 9/11 said that he and Al Qaeda had nothing to do with the 9/11 attack.

    The FBI itself has stated that there is no evidence that Osama bin Laden is responsible for 9/11. In 2006, Rex Tomb of the FBI’s public affairs unit said, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Osama bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11″. So far, the US Justice Department has not sought formal criminal charges against Bin Laden.

    On 18 July, 2002, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation’s counter-terrorism chief, Dale Watson, declared that Osama bin Laden was “probably” dead. It was the first time a senior US law-enforcement official publicly offered such an opinion.

    It is said that Osama bin Laden died in December 2001 of renal failure. Sami A. may in fact be able to shed some light on his employer’s demise.
