If he's alive, he sure isn't standing anywhere.

Stop looking in caves and start looking in Dubai penthouses.

I've been of this opinion for years. But I'm thinking more Saudi Arabia.

With you all on this one. He'd shave his face up, clean up his look, wear modern clothes and nobody would be able to pick him out of a crowd.
He's rich as hell and I don't think it takes an enormous amount of work in those M.E countries to change your identity.
Of course, he'd change his name to something ridiculously obvious..

I'd still like to know why it is/was so farking hard to find a six and a half foot Arab on dialysis.

Because we stopped looking 7 years and 10 months ago.

law of averages suggests he will be caught or killed at some point.

Yes. Also, the law of mortality suggests he is either already dead or will be at some point in the near future.

Is it a fact he has kidney issues or just internet rumor?

Bush was on the job. He could have been in the rose garden and W and Co would've farked it up.

I am in a class with him. During introductions, a guy said "My name is Usama. But for the last 15 years, I have asked that people call me 'Sam'."


Kinda like that poor kid, born in 1930 whose parents named him Adolph.

more so, when we had "actionable intel" and willing soldiers ready to go get him, why was the mission scrapped last minute. Listen, I dont think we should unnecessarily send our troops into situation where they may be at great risk, but the men on the ground in tora bora on that fateful night were ready to go. And it was pretty much confirmed he was there. We had nothern alliance with us and while the mission would have resulted in probably pretty high casualties, this is war. We had our chance. And someone pulled the rug out.

Obama is going to get him. Then the shiat will hit the fan! We'll end up letting him go because he wasn't properly Mirandized in Farsi.

Actually if he was white and not Arab, he'd be easier to spot.

C'mon you people! You gotta think like an Arab!
 
2009-09-11 01:47:27 PM  
Dead or not?? YOU decide!! I think he's dead, and I'll just leave this here...

Are you talking about the Bill Clinton "Wag the Dog" incident?

Or was there another time he could have been had?
 
2009-09-11 01:47:59 PM  
He's here in America. He was to be the 20th hijacker but he got scared and couldn't do it. As a result, Alqaeda is looking for him as is everyone else. He is most likely in Michigan.
 
2009-09-11 01:48:11 PM  
Not finding him is truly the defining failure of Obama's legacy.
 
2009-09-11 01:48:40 PM  
I know both an Essam and a Usama. They both go by Sam, of course.

FTFA: Peter Bergen says Osama bin Laden is still alive and still significant eight years after September 11.

You see that. Peter "I'm the motherfarker who tells you what's up" Bergen has spoken goddamit. All you best heed the words of the all-wise Peter "who the fark am I, again" Bergen.

heh.. there was an SNL/Mad TV/something skit a long time ago that I can't seem to find just yet, but rather than find Osama bin Laden they found Osama bin Zaden. At the time, it was funny

Been dead for a loooooong time.

I believe this was post 9/11. I cant remember exactly. They talk about it in Ghost Wars by Steve Coll. AWESOME BOOK.

But you people wouldn't know that.

"On the 2007 tape, the al Qaeda leader had even dyed his white-flecked beard black, suggesting that as the Saudi militant entered his fifth decade, he was not immune to a measure of vanity about his personal appearance."

While it isn't as satisfying, it may be for the best. Having the US kill or imprison him would have become a rallying cry for every Islamic extremist from here to Kabul. Better to let him slide into obscurity. Sure we talk about him, but how often does his image appear in protests like they did in the first few years? Does he still have the recruiting draw he did in 2002?

/don't know the answer
//Either dead or in some Pakistani compound. The Kingdom doesn't trust him either so he won't be there unless he's hiding.
