I was trying to think back to the last time there has been a confirmed sighting, or a video or audio tape that is confirmed to be of him and could be fairly accurately dated. Is the guy dead or what?
There have been some audio tapes purporting to be from Osama that were released since 9/11, and one or two of them had references to contemporary events that allowed approximate dating. None of them, however, have been determined conclusively to contain his voice. I recall that the CIA was sure it was him on a couple of them, but independent analysts couldn't tell.
I suspect that he's dead.

I read something about him two days ago, but I just can't remember well (now the loud sound that you're hearing, it's me banging my head on the wall).
Anyway, US intelligence knows where he is: in the mountains of western Pakistan (the article I referred to even mention the name of that place). But apparantly the Pakistaneses are not really in a hurry to go and get him.

Oh no !
We haven't received a new Betamax home video from Osama in a few weeks.
He MUST be DEAD !!
And if he is DEAD, then obviously GWB killed him !
Praise the GREAT Leader, GWB, the vanquisher of Osama, he of the monthly video release specials. The mighty leader has slain the wolf who would come into your home and eat your first born.

You know that the most likely place he would be is somewhere in the western world. a guy who has BILLIONS can surely manage to get a fake passport and visa to virtually anywhere. since no goverment agency has high reslulution photos of him a simple shave would probably lead you to belive that he is a normal person.
so WHY the "west"? Simple, every area of the big cities has a "ethink background settlements" now if the FBI were to arrest OBL lets say in NYC and there was no reason to arrest him. with a good lawyer he could get out of it. we learned this in con law "that a non-us citizen arrested without a charge ( they really cant just walk into your house and arrest you on suspicion that you were doing something without proof) cannot be in trail in the US.
It was something like that if anyone needs to know what it exactly sais you can google it.
Also no one likes living in caves. i really dont belive that OBL lived in a cave while in afghanistan. now in the west he would have money and with money you can buy anything.
But hey he just my be a dirtbag and live in a cave somewhere

Dead or else, he has done his time and succeeded.
Today, the entire planet is dotted with a few active and a lot of dormant terrorist cells, some direct products of his teachings, many copying it.
In the tradition of well organized obscure operations they are not part of an organisation, they are independent and self-sufficient. There is absolutely no way to fight an enemy you do not see.
G. Bush and Co, contrary to what many think, do understand that.
He also knew that he had to do something after 9/11 and that Afghanistan was nothing more than a local and temporary success, at the very best it carried a strong message.
He could have chosen to elaborate on this, together with the 45+ countries that (really) went in with the US, and with a full mandate from the UN.
He choose not, and that is a mistake many will pay dearly for in the years decades to come.

Osama, every morning wakes up, puts on his Nike trainers and tracksuite, ans goes for a jog outside the white house, gets a McDonalds breakfast then goes home and dances to mtv for a bit, gets dressed and gets in his Chevy and goes for a drive. That is his standard routine.
How hard could it be to find a guy in a dessert that is 6.2 with a camel and dialysis machine?
I wonder if he ever looked on the tag of where the technology for his dailysis machine came from or where it was manufactured?
remember straight after the attacks, some radical islamic group first claimed responsiblity for only 30 minutes to pass before they retracted their statememnt, I think they then realised that a hiding second to none would be coming there way then, if they were responsible.

It is hard to accept & totally unjust
but lets face it.. OBM has been succesfull in meeting his evil goals
Lets hope is is found & brought to justice..

From the same place that made his Stingers AAM's, the folks that hunt him now probably were his dinner partners in the eighties. Hard to rewrite history..
: What a liberal really means: I hate Bush so much, I will forget all the people this man helped kill! 9/11? That's old news! What a conservative really
: He was seen this morning stepping off the Isle of Wight ferry at 9am Glenn
