Bin Laden is Dead Says Report

 

A French secret service report published in a regional newspaper has quoted a French secret service member as saying that Saudi Arabia now believes that al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is dead.

The report dated September 21 said "According to a usually reliable source, the Saudi services are now convinced that Osama bin Laden is dead." Due to “a very serious case of typhoid which led to a partial paralysis of his internal organs."

A senior Pakistani interior ministry official told reporters: "We have no information about Osama's death."

  Mmm  
 
Nope not dead, you know why? too far from the mid-term elections...even when he dies...or whatever the US still will attach real strings to his arms and lips and film tapes threatening more attacks.

Danger danger, my arms a flailing wildly...expect more attacks!

  DNA Testing Required  
 
I've read a couple of reports that Bin Laden may be dead but I dont think anyone will believe its true until a body is retrieved and can be positively identified.

"partial paralysis of his internal organs" - Sounds painfull, just as he would deserve.

  bin ladin dead [to public consciousness] says repo  
 
<joke>
sorry citizens,
we're just running an article to test whether bin laden still pulls in the crowds like he used to. Since 9/11 he no longer draws the public to the Bush cause like he used to.

Out agents were going to replace him with Tom Cruise. If his box office ratings fell much further against Saddam's.

We've recorded your response to the announcement and will take it back for evaluation. But thank you for your co-operation. Now, move along, there's nothing to see here.</joke>

  if he IS dead, Saddam is safe  
 
They're gonna have to try Saddam for the next decade. If Saddam dies, who's gonna be the CIA poster-boy for hate? Hmm, hey, digital_darkness, you free for the next 10 years?

I wish I was a lawyer. [not Saddam's, they get offed too often]. It's a job for life (for Saddam's lawyers too).

  Dead?  
 
Not gonna' believe it until I see the body. Produce the corpse!

  As you mentioned, this is the Xth time  
 
they say he is dead.
Ok, if he is _REALLY_ dead, who took his place and is he an attention wh0re who will be extremely violent to compensate for his childhood issues?

  Beware the Osama clone!  
 
The Bush administration will not be able to maintain its grasp on power without a scapegoat, someone to point the finger at, a pasty to instill fear in the masses. “The boogie man is coming! He’s hiding under your bed and only the Republicans can protect you!”

OMG!! Kerry and Gore are hiding under my bed??

Eeeek!
 
  by: carnold     09/23/2006 03:06 PM     
  They already have a new boogieman  
 
And he's in Iran. Next stop for the neocons. Of course no WMDs will be found...and they all know it.

It's all about perception, lie and die.

  REMEMBER THE "DRONE" ?  
 
A short while back, that had all the terrorists at a funeral? "could that have been? ha ha ha.. that would be so "typical" of the many "blunders" of this and past adminstration. NOPE we can't bomb them in a cemetary? Well there in the exact spot they need to be bombed in.. no transporation needed to their final resting place.

Yea that must be very painful. I hope Bush dies the same way too.
@other. "Whore??" funny this word is only used on Women and there is no equivalent in Men. And stil getting used by a woman...Very ugly word.

  @ kinko  
 
i agree, it is an ugly word, but i couldn't find another way of saying that!
women have a lot of degrading descriptions ye hardly any exit for men!!(no, i am not a feminist but i do believe in equal rights)

  do you think they killed him off BECAUSE of Iran?  
 
<conjecture>
If we had Iran to deal with, Osama to deal with, Saddam, Kim Il Jung, Chavez, Musharraf, I suppose the public will feel overwhelmed. They wouldn't feel overwhelmed with the sheer number of 'enemies dujour' but just an overload on the senses to feel emotionally charged against so many different boogiemen.

Maybe US just decided, two boogiemen at a time was more than enough, so had to finally kill off Osama to make way for Iran.

They're not going to allow a civilian autopsy are they? (not that I can see that will prove anything).

Shakespear's novel (I think it was Hamlet) says:
"All the world's a stage, and every man doth watch it on the Fox News".
</conjecture>

  So now what?  
 
Now is it just up to "Al-Quaeda's #2 man" to provide the terror to keep the Repubs in? They keep killing him though, and he keeps coming back. Durn #2 man's resilient, if nothing else...

  By the way...  
 
... did you notice how this unconfirmed and spurious bit of fluff news popped up at the exact same day that the US war dead climed above the number killed in the Sept 11 attacks? Coincidence or diversionary tactic?
 
  by: Mister crank     09/24/2006 04:25 AM     
  did you know  
 
i <deleted by admin> 11 times on sept 11th?
Coincidence or not?
Give me a break
If you look closely at ANYTHING you can find coincidences...thats part of being human, but don't let it be a cloud of smoke obscuring of whats really true or not.
 
  by: sp00ky187   09/24/2006 05:18 AM     
  @Mr_crank: source please  
 
Can you back up that claim, I kinda missed it about US troop dead > 9/11 deaths.

Link Please.

  could it be  
 
A small french newspaper scooped FoxNews, CNN and the NY Times?
 
  by: monstrddg   09/24/2006 02:29 PM     
  French Idiots!  
 
You CANNOT base fact on supposition.
And that is what this report is.
Dumb idiot wrote the report and supposed that bin laden had died of Typhus.The report was made out in the absence of any facts.If this report was real,then this is the fifth time bin laden has died!

Mmm-hmm, Sp00ky. On to opinions that matter...


@redstain:
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/...
I'm not surprised you didn't hear about it. I couldn't find a trace of it on CNN, so I'm assuming Fox would bury it even deeper. I was expecting to see a Shortnews post about it, but it really seems to be buried. I'm thinking no one in the gov't or the media really wants to spend too much time reflecting on the fact that the US gov't is now directly responsible for more deaths than happened on Sept 11/01...
 
  by: Mister crank     09/24/2006 05:00 PM     
  @Mister crank  
 
CNN reports the numbers of deaths daily, maybe you aren't looking hard enough. ( at least whenever i flip "past" the news channels i get a glimpse of death totals)

http://www.cnn.com/...

This shows all, even including deaths from other countries, also the afghanistan is separate but there is a link to view that as well.
The break up of numbers is going to be different i think because of including all nation's deaths are on there.

You are just pointing out a obvious fact that happens in every war, show me one wars that have been fought with a different outcome.

Did you even see the comparison of Pearl Harbor vs Iraq?

What's even more funny, is you are saying the U.S is using this to blind side the americans when it was the French that disclosed this. So when the French was against this war....they are now playing along?

The only opinions you think that matter are ones that back your little conpiracy theory, you are the few that make people who speculate this war look like fools, looking into every detail and trying to conjure something up.

  Osama Dead yet again  
 
Yawn.

Lol, I so agree with Mr anderson, it will be a puppet on a string job if he is really dead.

Who knows he may come back and haunt us, who know? :)
