    According to a news source in the middle east (not sure which one), Osama bin Laden was killed and buried on December 5, 2001.

    Whether this is true or not remains to be seen, but I thought I'd report it anyway.

    Thanks for the news, Abe! Let's hope it's true. Normally I don't like to think of people dying but in his case, I hope he suffered plenty.

    If it's true, that is...

    My source is a radio show that I either download the mp3 or, if I'm up early enough, listen to live via the internet. It's a show out of Pittsburgh (WRRK 96.9 FM), and the website is www.warroom.com if you are so inclined to check it out. This came from the July 11 show.

    As for this particular subject, the story came from The Arab News (the 1st English newspaper in Saudi Arabia). Bin Laden is reportedly buried in the mountains of southeast Afghanistan. Pakistan's president reported it 6 months ago, and an Al Qaeda member currently being held by US authorities has supposedly confirmed this. There have been many denials since then, though, so it's tough to figure out who is to be believed.

    While the validity of the story is certainly in question, there are many points which add an air of plausibility to it. Even if he is not literally dead, the entire structure of his terrorist network has been obliterated, rendering him politically dead.

    Again, I am not saying that he is dead; I'm just presenting the theory that I heard, and above I posted a link for someone to find the audio if they so choose, lest they think I've been hittin' Glenn's crack pipe too hard. [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]

    Well, let's hope so anyway ...

    Am I the only one that hopes he isn’t dead? His death will not be a victory for us in probably any way. His death will only make him a martyr, and elevate him to a god like figure in the radical Islamic world. It might even push his people here to orchestrate a huge attack. But if we capture him, and broadcast pictures of the mighty bin Laden in a prison cell in Cuba, it would be more a kick to the balls of the radicals than to hear there hero dying in the heat of battle.

    I hope he is dead, and I hope he suffered before it happened.

    The Islamofascists will make ANYONE a martyr, so it really doesn't matter what happens to bin Laden.

    I just hope that if he is confirmed dead we don't use that as an excuse to lighten up in our war efforts. This is like a cancer, and it ALL has to be rooted out or it will always be a threat.

    No fucking shit.

    If someone's fucking goat dies, it's portrayed as a martyr.

I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    German Intelligence: Bin Laden Alive
    Sat Jul 13, 3:16 PM ET

    BERLIN (AP) - The head of Germany's foreign intelligence agency said in an interview published Saturday that he believes Osama bin Laden ( news - web sites) is still alive and hiding along the border between Afghanistan ( news - web sites) and Pakistan.

    August Hanning, the head of the Federal Intelligence Service, also estimated that more than 5,000 supporters of al-Qaida and Afghanistan's ousted Taliban militia remain in Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan, while many others have returned to their homelands.

    "They are preparing attacks from their new locations — they will try everything to strike again," he was quoted as saying in the Welt am Sonntag newspaper. "We must be prepared for that."

    He referred to no specific plans.

    Bin Laden and his al-Qaida terrorist network are held responsible for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the United States. Shortly after the attacks, Bush said he wanted bin Laden "dead or alive."

    Since then, Bush and other U.S. officials have played down the search for bin Laden, saying the more important goal is disrupting al-Qaida and preventing future attacks.

    "As our knowledge stands, we are convinced that bin Laden is still alive, in the border region of Afghanistan and Pakistan," Hanning was quoted as saying.

    "He is still the symbolic figurehead of al-Qaida, but apparently moves around little and when he does, in a very secretive manner," Hanning added, without elaborating.

    Last Monday, President Bush ( news - web sites) said he does not know whether bin Laden is dead or alive.

    German security agencies have worked closely with their counterparts in the United States to investigate the Sept. 11 attacks after it emerged that three of the suicide hijackers had lived undetected in Hamburg.

    Hanning said bin Laden was consulted in planning for major al-Qaida attacks "but he did not operationally prepare the actions, and probably didn't even know all the details of the preparations."

    He added the preparations for Sept. 11 "didn't cost much more than $1 million."
