Would be quite ironic that after all of those years of being chased by the entire US armed forces arsenal, he was to die of typhoid fever. I don't know why so many people see that his death would make any differance at all. If he dies there still will be terrorism, there still will be suicide bombers, there still will be tension between the Middle East and the West. Terrorism is an idea, not a person, not Bin Laden. Sheesh.
Never tell your girlfriend about all the 'action' you're getting at the airport - only photogs understand that.

Quoting ANCFlyer (Reply 10): France Investigates Leak of info on OBLs death . . .
I caught this first thing when I woke up this morning. CNN's running it with a lot of disclaimers, but they're still running it.
Don't know what to make of it, other than I'd want to be damn sure before I started speculating....CNN doesn't have the best reputation for this stuff, so if I were them I'd check the authenticity until their blue in the face.
If its true, I wish it could have been us to do it.

The most important role of secret sevice organizations is to spread false roumors...
Chirac seemed very embarrassed and has asked a detailes investigation about the journal's source.
If the report -as stated -was "secret defence" it should not have been published.

Of course, like the rest of you, I won't feel sorry for that animal, but what kind of a difference would the death of that make? Personally, I'm more interested in dismantling all the terrorist cells he created all over the world. In case that the freak is dead, all those cells could work on their own and could create even bigger destruction and cause more deaths.

I would wait until the the Saudi's get his body and USA or EU labs can take DNA samples and check it against those of his relatives (like his son).
Even then, al-Queda is more than Bin Laden and I am quite sure some other person will take his place.
It is well known he has kidney disease, so exposure to some diseases may have fortuntally put him at greater risk to die for his age. I just hope he had a very painful experience in his death if true.
