    Osama Bin Laden For the past ten plus year this has been the way his name was spellled, but I mlook at the FBI wanted list this is how it's spelled Usama Bin Laden. Does anyone have an idea why it spelled this way on the FBI wanted list?

    FBI — USAMA BIN LADEN

    From a 1999 wanted list his name was spelled Osama bin Laden

    Osama bin Laden[a] was the leader of al-Qaeda and was wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States embassies, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. Bin Laden and al-Qaeda is alleged to be responsible for the October 12, 2000, attack on the USS Cole off the coast of Yemen, which killed 17. Although bin Laden later appeared on the first publicly released FBI Most Wanted Terrorists list on October 10, 2001, he was listed there for his alleged role in the 1998 embassy attack, and not for his alleged role in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people, because the most wanted lists name fugitives charged with a crime by a prosecutor or under indictment by a grand jury. Bin Laden was named as an "unindicted co-conspirator" in, for instance, the federal indictment against convicted terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui, but has not been formally indicted for his alleged role in the September 11, 2001, attacks. He was announced dead on May 1, 2011.
    Osama bin Laden was the subject of a $50 million[14] reward through the State Department's Rewards for Justice program targeting international fugitives, especially alleged terrorists, plus $2 million through a program developed and funded by the Air Line Pilots Association and the Air Transport Association.[a][15][16]

    I believe Muslims change the spelling of their name every few years.

    Is this a hint that the world now looks to go into Pakistan?

    Who gives a fuck how it's spelled. The guy is dead so he certainly doesn't care.

    It's the new politically correct spelling that's been brought forth by the left. It's been changed from Osama to Usama because Osama is too close to Obama. They don't want such a close psychological link between Osama and Obama, both known radicals with muslim names.
