    Theres a few more people out there that would fund Al-Qaeda if he was dead, one example i think is - Saddam Hussian.

    Sure he may be a bogeyman now, but the U.S. would score a propaganda victory if he were dead.

    Oh and yes I believe he is still alive, but since he's most likely in Pakistan he's protected. Otherwise we would have blown the hell out of Pakistan too. It's an interesting balancing act. We can't let Pakistan fall into the hands of extremists since they have nuclear weapons so for now we'll be friends with Pakistan and we can't send in troops to kill Bin Laden. What a tangle web we weave.
    I suppose I'm getting cynical as I grow older, and I should have said our government (referring to the USA) however the UK is onboard with this as well. They need to keep UBL "alive" to keep us distracted from all of the domestic problems. Notice just in the last few months, we had a "tape" released around election time, then another "tape" around the time Powell was trying to make his case to the UN. We're also told of impending terrorist attacks at any given time, and that there is "hundreds" of sleeper cells just waiting for orders to attack. All you need is a high-profile bust every once in awhile and it keeps the people from questioning too many moves of their government (such as the fact that we've gone from a projected surplus to a deep deficit in just under two years).

    As far as the Pakistan issue goes, check out this transcript from PBS:

    I believe he is alive as the places for him to hide are infinite and he isn't a stupid man so he could figure a way to disguise himself and get help. Remember he from Saudi Arabia so he has some ties there. So the probability of him being dead is small.

    started a topic Osama Bin Laden, is he dead?

    Osama Bin Laden, is he dead?

    Bin Laden, we haven't seen a fresh picture of that scumbag denouncing the western world and misusing religion as a pretext for an Islamic Jihad in front of a microphone in a very long time. Rumor has it that he's sick with kidney problems. Last time he spoke it was simply his voice. Why would they do this? Well could it be that he died? Any of his militants can make an attempt at an authentic Bin Laden voice and give another speech. After all, if he were dead, Al Qaeda wouldn't announce it, why? they could loose support. So of course they'd pretend he's alive to show other extremists that this terrorist organizations is still going strong. For all we know, this could be the case. Based on this information, I'm starting to think that this man is burning in hell as we speak.

    What are your views?
