    I think what happens is they really don't know if he's dead or alive so they float these "He's dead" rumors out there in order to force him to do something to prove he isn't dead. They literally goad him into proving he's alive.

    Yeah, that's what a whole bunch of imbeciles were saying 2 years ago leading up to the presidential elections, or that we had already captured him and were just holding him for the right time.

    I've read where this is a distinct possibility. In reading about UBL possibly being dead, there was an interesting point of note. I guess UBL hasn't made a video message in over 2 years (2004). He's only made audio messages since. The last audio message was in July of this year. It's interesting because it makes me wonder if his health is such that he doesn't want people to see him weak and dying.

    right, he just turned up on videotape 4 days before the election, which effectly ended any momentum Kerry had. what a coincidence.

    As helpful as that video was to GW, I think this is what did in John Kerry:

    I love funny political pics, and it beats the GW picture for sure.

    Taliban to ABC News: OBL Alive and Safe

    September 27, 2006 11:53 AM
    Rahimullah Yusufzai Reports:

    In a surprise phone call to the home of an ABC News producer in Pakistan, the top Taliban military commander, Mulla Dadullah Akhund, said Osama bin Laden is alive and that there is no truth to the rumors of his death from typhoid.

    "Sheikh Osama is all right. He is safe," Dadullah told ABC News' Rahimullah Yusufzai. Dadullah would not disclose the location from where he was calling.

    In the past, Dadullah has issued statements to the effect that bin Laden and Taliban leader Mulla Mohammad Omar are alive and leading the resistance against U.S.-led foreign forces in Afghanistan.

    When pressed for evidence to show that bin Laden is alive, Dadullah hinted that there is a possibility of a tape being sent to media organizations to prove that the al Qaeda head isn't dead. Dadullah, however, declined to say as to when this tape would be made available.

    The last time bin Laden released an audiotape was in late July. In it, he eulogized the sacrifices of al Qaeda leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al Zarqawi, and described him as a martyr.
