So, apparently Osama bin Laden has released an audio message in honor of Israel's 60th Bday (or in memory of the Nakba). It's nothing new... in terms of content... but I just really really doubt it's him. I mean, we haven't seen the guy in for-ev-er.

Of course, I think the Bush didn't help matters (in being seen as less biased) by failing to acknowledge the Palestinian suffering upon the creation of Israel... but then again, I never really expected Dubya to do/say anything different.

Bush made no acknowledgment of the hardship Palestinians suffered when hundreds of thousands were displaced following the creation of the Jewish state in 1948, a counterpoint to Israel’s two weeks of jubilant celebrations.

So...do you think Osama is alive? Does it matter?

I suspect he's dead. If he wants to be taken seriously he has to put out videos. Just ask Madonna or Brittney.

I'm not sure I believe he existed in the 1st place - at least not in the capacity that our military intelligence credits him with (or tells us, anyway). So, while I voted other, maybe it should be doesn't matter.

I don't know either, and as crude as it is to say so, I hope he's dead.

I think he's alive. And we've spent so much time and money in Iraq- we probably would have found him by now.

Nah. My uncle is in special forces. He's still alive. Otherwise someone would have crowned himself in the glory of being his replacement. He's not in Iraq. Bin Laden may be in Syria, Saudi Arabia (Carmen Bin Laden is certain he has contact with his family) Iran, or Pakistan.

But he most certainly is in poor health. We probably won't find him until he dies.
