#1 So how are his clones doing. I am sure that a man of his wealth had more than a nose run over by a steamrollers to provide tissue for clones of the master caliph!

#2 True or not, I have always felt it would be strategically advantagous to make him prove he was alive at least once a quarter...
"But I'm not dead yet..."

#3 i wish we would play on the fact that binny has been running and scared since 9/11, can we not somehow highlight the fact to the 'muslim world' just how weak and pityfull this strategy of binnys is. We need to explain to them that great heros and fighters dont hide like frightened little wimps from those they choose to pick a fight with. In many respects that is what should dominate in the argument with muslims, do they really want their great hero being remembered as a running scared coward?

#4 Khalilzad should personally taunt him on al-Jizz regularly. Call him a girly man who is afraid to show his face in public, etc.

Actually, we have. To Bush's immense credit, he has had the courage to tour in hostile territory like Pakistan and do so openly. This is one he|| of a lot more than bin Laden has done since Clinton tried to nail his @ss in Khost.

#6 Michael Ledeen has said the same ...
And, according to Iranians I trust, Osama bin Laden finally departed this world in mid-December. The al Qaeda leader died of kidney failure and was buried in Iran, where he had spent most of his time since the destruction of al Qaeda in Afghanistan. The Iranians who reported this note that this year's message in conjunction with the Muslim Haj came from his number two, Ayman al-Zawahiri, for the first time.

#7 ...I have said this befor and I will say it again - the smartest thing we could ever do is to NEVER admit Bin Laden is dead. If this is true - and I'm sorry, I don't think it is - the screaming for us to get out of Afghanistan and Iraq will be deafening from both sides of the aisle.

#9 Think a $25 million dollar U.S. bounty has anything to do with O.Bin Ladens hiding out?

#10 No, it was fear of death BiStander.

#11 Using an Islamitard as a source? I don't know. Who knows, maybe Bin Laden had to much of the Meccan Allah Approved "Swine Sperm Beer" and it did in what remained of his kidneys. We can only hope.

I would think having a $25 million bounty on ones' head would cause a "fear of death".

#13 What nitwits, Binny should have had one of his boys turn him in just proir to death so the $25 mil would go to fund fighting for another year or month or whatever.
These guys need some imagination.

#18 LODI now LADIS - in any case, find the body and publicly prove it in front of America and the world. Iran is an oil nation so any health probs Osama had can easily be treated iff not resolved by his Iranian, etal, supporters, and wid out a verifiable body young, dumb, and full of 72 raisins-happy, suicide-happy impressionable Muslim youths have no one to call a Hero, Saladin, or a Mahdi.

#19 Happy St Patty's Day and Top of the Morning to All of You:

I like those in the good fight against Islamo-Fascism, but I do not like to have my hopes lifted by false prophets. Am I going too far to suggest that Rep. Weldon just might be a ... crank?
