    Bin Laden trail goes ‘stone cold’

    Bin Laden trail goes ‘stone cold’

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14724112/

    The clandestine U.S. commandos whose job is to capture or kill Osama bin Laden have not received a credible lead in more than two years. Nothing from the vast U.S. intelligence world — no tips from informants, no snippets from electronic intercepts, no points on any satellite image — has led them anywhere near the al-Qaeda leader, according to U.S. and Pakistani officials.

    "The handful of assets we have have given us nothing close to real-time intelligence" that could have led to his capture, said one counterterrorism official, who said the trail, despite the most extensive manhunt in U.S. history, has gone "stone cold."

    But in the last three months, following a request from President Bush to "flood the zone," the CIA has sharply increased the number of intelligence officers and assets devoted to the pursuit of bin Laden. The intelligence officers will team with the military's secretive Joint Special Operations Command(JSOC) and with more resources from the National Security Agency and other intelligence agencies.

    Is he dead?

    I think he's dead. The last time we saw his face was almost 2 yrs. ago--that video b/4 the '04 election. We've had audio tapes that "probably" are his voice, but no images. The only face we see is his #2 guy.
