Default Has Osama Bin Laden been dead for seven years

I know it's in the Mail - but interesting read...

Has Osama Bin Laden been dead for seven years - and are the U.S. and Britain covering it up to continue war on terror?

tbh i reckon hes been dead for ages, as to the truth who knows and frankly i dont think anyone in the powers that be (either good or evil) gives a shit anymore as both sides need the near mythical leader
The forces of "good" need a reason to keep hunting and the forces of "evil" need a figurehead so neither side will admit it if he is dead or not.

i do remember reading some stuff about him years ago that said just before 9/11 that he was being treated in the american hospital dubai for kidney problems and at the time the prognosis was that he didnt have long to live.
who knows and if anyone does they aint talking

Anyone who thinks Bin Ladin's death would end the war on terror is either ignorant or woefully misinformed.

Islamic terrorism won't end until Islam as most people know it ends...the problem is the doctrine giving people excuses to commit terrorism.

I saw him at Oddbins at Clapham Junction and he seemed to be in good spirits.

Yes - and the Americans posted a bodyguard on his hospital door to keep him safe - they still, at that time, regarded him as a hero of the 'mujihadeen' who fought the Russians in Afghanistan in 1979..... with US and British weaponry, training, etc.......

According to sky news he's apparently "alive". Whether he is dead or alive, Bin Laden is the face of terrorism - this works for both the islamic extremists and the Americans...

and yet on another thread you claim to have read about the cia sponsored war in pakistan and afghanistan against the russians. Which were that actually the case you would know that he was very real and in fact trained by the very people you quote in the other thread.

Yes, I do believe CIA played an active role in motivating jihadis and poured a lot of money to create madrassas/train jihadis, supply weapons etc to defeat Russia. But I still dont think Mr. Laden was part of that. In fact I just dont think he is really something the way has been portrayed. C'mon he lives in caves and is able to bring distruction from 1000s of miles away to a power like the US. And he is alive even after that carpet bombing of the mighty tora bora caves in a country where the war killed millions but this one bloody ba$terd is still alive laughing and challenging the americans? What an ultimate set of bollox.

eh btw hes released a new one yesterday, ..I mean a 'video'.
