I don't think he is dead, mainly because US troops and special forces are still actively on the ground in Pakistan seeking him.
If he had of been killed you can be sure that the people who had got him would have put their hands up for some credit. That hasn't happened so I think he's in the mountains of Pakistan somewhere.
By the way, he has no real power now anyway, except as a symbolic figure. I doubt very much that he has the wherewithall to plan setting off a firecracker in Lahore, let alone a bomb anywhere else. Anything done by 'Al Qaida' these days is done via disparate cells, and not through the planning of OBL.
Prior to 9/11 OBL was a symbolic figure to Al Queada. Post 9/11 OBL is a symolbic figure to us. He should have been symbolically cut in half with an M-16 a long time ago.
I want my pound of flesh!
I'm partially with Bit on this one. Going on 6 years since 9/11 and no OBL. Why is it all we ever hear from the CIA is their clerical justification/non-justification, whatever, for this 'war' in Iraq. What is the CIA doing in Iraq TODAY is what I wanna know! I've sent them several letters re: my plan to get the whole country of Iraq high on acid to stop the violence but no reply from them.
[QUOTE=bitonti]he planned a failed hit on Cheney not too long ago, he's not dead[/QUOTE]
Why do you believe whatever any raghead claims?
[QUOTE]the Taliban's top military commander, told Al-Jazeera that bin Laden planned and supervised the attack that killed 23 people outside the big U.S. base at Bagram during Cheney's visit.
"You may remember the martyr operation inside the Bagram base, which targeted a senior U.S. official. ... That operation was the result of his wise planning. He (bin Laden) planned that operation and guided us through it. [b]The operation was a success,[/b]" Dadullah told Al-Jazeera. He did not say how he knew that bin Laden planned the attack.
A U.S. military official, however, immediately reacted with skepticism, calling Dadullah's interview "an opportunistic claim."
hey it all depends on where you live... the real world or the fake world. maybe in the fake world OBL is kicking up daisies because that's what you want, in the real world, he's chilling in pakistan and no one's saying boo.
