Sir Alex Ferguson admitted in a press conference today that he had suspicions over the timing and motives of the U.S raid that killed Osama Bin Laden earlier this month.
"For almost a decade this man has been on the run, yet for some reason he couldn't be found. In fact all talk of him seemed to have died down completely. Suddenly 18 days ago with us 3 points from knocking Liverpool off their perch, the Bin Laden story breaks. Now you tell me whether that sounds a bit fishy to you"
Ferguson went on to contend that U.S President Barack Obama had shown his "true colours" in his decision to execute the raid on the 2nd of May.
"Obama is no mug. He's known where Bin Laden was hiding for 9 months. Why get him now? I'll tell you why. Some Scouse Jihadists that had been protecting him conveniently remembered where he was, and told the authorities. What happened after that was very disappointing. I expected Barack to be respectful of our impending achievement, but I suppose when the Republicans accused him of being a Red, they meant Liverpool supporter rather than Communist".
White House press representatives have declined to comment on the issue.
