Is Bin Laden Dead
 
Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has a water-borne illness, a Saudi intelligence source told CNN on Saturday, a report that conflicts with an article in a French newspaper saying that the man who has been hunted by the United States for the past five years is dead.

we can hope
 
A Time.com news story reports:

Quote:

Fugitive Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, believed to be on the run in rugged terrain in the Afghan-Pakistani border region since the September 11 attacks five years ago, has become seriously ill and may have already died, a Saudi source tells TIME, echoing earlier reports in the French media.
Quote:

The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, says that Saudi officials have received multiple credible reports over the last several weeks that Bin Laden has been suffering from a water-borne illness.
Is Bin Laden Dead?

yes.. we can only hope. and yes, I hope he is "SUFFERING", hope it hurts like heck, and that's is slow and painful. I think it would be only fitting that instead of TAKING This guy out.. he just slowly fades away from a freakin' water-borne illness and he rots away in some freakin' cave somewhere. There, I feel better already :cool:

oh yea
 
Yes, it's the BASH BIN LADEN THREAD

This would be welcome news.. a good way to start off the weekend !

What bothers me is that it appears that some of these reports are coming out of France and Saudi Arabia. I don't trust either. But I will eagerly await confirmation.

And Kansast, yes you are correct. I hope he's suffering big time.

now I don't usually find comfort in another person's suffering.. but in this case I'll make an exception.

Makes me feel like singing a song :)
Anyways, yes, we can only hope this correct. But it seems we hear about this kind of story every few months. And yes, I don't trust the French too much either.

It doesn't matter if he is dead
 
There are many more like him to take his place. At one time we could say that he was unique in his hatred for America and that by eliminating him we would find a sense of security. But our actions in the region have created a entire population that relishes the opportunity to kill all things American.

We have met the enemy, and it is us.

Do you really believe that we are the enemy? Then why don't you move to Iraq or Palestine and strap on a bomb and live (or die) by your beliefs and convictions? Or do you simply believe that enemies should not be engaged or dealt with?

But don't buy your plane ticket yet... I have news. Muslim extremists have wanted to kill “infidels” long before Bin Laden re-popularized the program with a new face. What ever gave you the notion that Bin Laden was unique in his hatred for America? (and I would include our Allies as well) Now that the dream of having a nuke is actually within reach for the non-infidel world, they are reaching. I really can’t blame them for reaching or us for stopping them. Neither side will have 100% success 100% of the time. Both sides will have successes and failures as the “terrorist war” continues. Speaking for myself, I hope “we” win! And I would never do anything to give comfort or lip service to the enemy, even if I had some valid criticism of how our side comes up shorter than 100% from time to time.

Personally I think that much of the “failure” in Iraq is due to the fact that we didn’t come up with WMD’s predicted by the massive intelligence agencies all over the free world. I am curious how such well equipped and funded agencies were fooled or could get it wrong. I have no evidence, but my gut feeling is that we were fooled, but only because we announced months ahead that we were going to strike. The CIA isn’t stupid and neither is our enemy. If you knew you were going to be hit, what would you do, hide your WMD’s, or not hide them? LOL  I think what was there has gone to Syria and other American hating countries before we even got there. Our acting in a politically correct to appease the UN and democrats with a countdown way may have severely weakened our security, verses launching an unannounced strike and coming up with an full bag.

Pardon the French but they are always behind the curve. Osama is just
a small part of the problem. Iran and Syria is who is backing all the terror
and guest who backs Iran and Syria that would be Russia. (Edomites)

You think we are the problem ?? My, my you have sold out to socialism.
Think you make friends with these bastards by rolling over and kissing there
butt. WE (USA & UK) first ones every time there is a disaster to take care
of the third world and they wont to kill us ? We need to take it to them
and take it to them where they wont be back at our door any time soon.
Study the war of 1917 General Allenby. I it will be over when Chist comes
at the second advent.

Regardless of how 'important' he may or may not be... I hope he's sick, ill, dying, or already toast. just my .02
