#3 As for OBL hiding in trucks among cargoes of chickens + goats, cement, etc. I doubt it - the man I remember from the anti-Soviet War deeply believed his faith would protect him, + liked to ride openly.
I'll believe it iff Ayman or Mullah Omar, + certain others, say its true, i.e. that OBL changed + grew cautious in his age or his ways.
