    Osama bin Laden dead?

    Look what I just saw on my ISP news:

    Can't link to the article, it won't let you in unless you're with my ISP.

    Well, not that I put much stock in reports like these, but I wonder...

    Amen. Even if he is dead, it will not end Al Queda or the war on terrorism.

    I agree completely


    (side note- Does any one else find it amusing that the French president has the same name as a character on Bugs Bunny? I have a problem reading "Jacques Chirac" with out adding "Black" at the beginning.)

    Or it's a trick to launch the next wave of their "holy" war...

    In either way, it would be acceptable to believe he died by now, he's been mortally ill for years, they didn't gave him 5 more years so...

    Bin Laden dying means nothing for the "war on terror." If Bush died, someone else with the same ideology would come to take his place. If anything, he will gain some type of sainthood status, which will feed more and more militant terrorist attacks.

    If he is dead then this is bad for us, a real victory would've been bringing him in alive and putting him on trial and then NOT EXECUTING HIM so as not to make him a martyr.

    This doesn't precisely make him a martyr, but it denies us the chance to make an example of him and dent their morale. So not really as bad as us killing him I guess, but not good either.

    If it's true, of course. It wouldn't be the first time this has been thought.

    Well he's one of theirs and they want him dead as much as anybody I suppose.

    Such a pity he died.
    The whole world will mourn his passing (if he is indeed dead).

    One thing's for sure . . . If he is actually dead, we get to see Karl Rove spin "we spent billions going after this guy for five years and we could have just waited him to catch a realy bad cold instead" into "Victory October Surprise Democrats Hate America." He's good, that guy.

    I agree completely. I will be seriously disappointed if he is actually dead.

    Of course, I don't have much faith anymore that had we caught him, it would have been handled correctly anyway.

    That is true. It would have been nice to make an example of him, but I also agree that it would not have been handled appropriately.

    This is leaked information and hasn't been confirmed yet, until it is I have my doubts. Not that it will matter much, We're fighting our war on terror in Iraq now. So Al-qaeda and the Taliban aren't of much importance.

    What is sounds like an intentional disinformation leak by the French secret service with the intent of making Osama release a tape that he is alive so that we can put a trail on their messneger and hopefully trace it back to Osama himself.

    This of course means that our trail is cold, and we have no idea where he is.
