Osama bin Laden is dead

Yes indeedy, OBL is taking the long dirt nap. We'll never find his remains so it can be verified beyond a shadow of a doubt, but nonetheless he's a corpse. How can I be so sure? He never taunts the US anymore. All high level communications from Al Qaeda are now issued by al-Zawahiri. We can stop the charade of calling him Al Qaeda's No. 2, he has now inherited the No. 1 spot.

You know what really steams al-Zawahiri? Jews. You know what else? Barrack Obama.

Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader lashed out at President-elect Barack Obama in a new audio message Tuesday, accusing him of not doing anything to stop Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip, according to an intelligence monitoring center.

In the comments, which were posted on a militant Web site and obtained by the SITE Monitoring Service, al-Zawahiri described Israel's actions in Gaza as a "crusade against Islam and Muslims" and called it "Obama's gift to Israel" before he takes office later this month.

"This is Obama whom the American machine of lies tried to portray as the rescuer who will change the policy of America," al-Zawahiri said, according to SITE. "He kills your brothers and sisters in Gaza mercilessly and without affection."

Well maybe the media did over hype the whole Hope and Change thing. And Zawahiri probably isn't alone in his disappointment that Obama's not going to flip the switch on American foreign policy come January 20. But geez, he hasn't even been sworn in yet. Obama effigies and hate mail are a little premature.

It's just sad how some folks are just so determined to bring Obama down they can't even wait for him to take office before they start with the bashing.

You know who else Zawahiri hates? Hosni Mubarak:

Al-Zawahiri, who is Egyptian, also criticized Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, calling him a "traitor" for keeping Egypt's border with the Gaza Strip closed since Hamas seized power.
Yeah, what happened to Egypt? They used to be all about fighting the Jews. Now they build walls to keep out Hamas just like Israel. No wonder he's ticked. Maybe he should go to Gaza and publicly protest. No doubt a warm welcome could be arranged.
The audio message was accompanied by a still photograph of the al-Qaida leader sitting with a gun in his lap.
A still photo and some audio tape? Either he's just mailing it in or he's already dead and releasing tapes from beyond the grave just like Tupac Shakur. A super villain owes his henchmen better. North Korea arranges for Kim Jong-il's stunt doubles to show up on video, is some grainy footage of a body double asking too much?

We can take solace in the fact renal failure is a miserable way to die. Hellfire missiles are too quick and painless. Enjoy your shallow pauper's grave, Osama.

If so, I'm glad he was looking over his shoulder for the last years of his life, thanks to US Special Forces, crawling from cave to cave.

G.:

If he is dead it must be awful, waiting--knowing, dreading, the result of his terrible mistake. There are no virgins or paradise, just the knowledge of a monstrous burning lake that awaits him. There is no sign of his god. There is no Allah to help or answer his pleas---only the judgment of YAHWEH, the Great I AM.

JLawson:

I'm thinking Osama's been dead since around Tora Bora. If you've got the sound files you can do some pretty sophisticated cutting and pasting with even the utilities that come standard with Windows.

Play it out to a cheap recorder, play that one to another, and you've obscured anything that might give away that the 'new' message is really just a hash of bits and pieces.

That may well be why we haven't pushed the issue with Pakistan - why go after a corpse, when he's serving as excellent flypaper?

You are probably right in your premise that Oasam Bin Ladin is dead. I am still hoping for a video of a Navy Seal coming out of a cave with his head on a stick.

Chad:

Hey guys, anybody else remember the big funeral in pakistan that they got all pissed off about us dropping in a munition. All the big terrorist leaders were there, could it have been OBL? I've been telling my wife he's dead for 2 years, I didn't even realize this was news anymore. I'd like to be the guy coming out of the cave carrying his head. That would be a privilege. a smelly privilege, but I'll take it.

The possibility OBL is dead is very real. His boys are still active, however and we are way to nice in fighting them. Collateral damage isn't important to these guys. They only whine about it to get sympathy from civilized nations. If this wasn't the case they wouldn't hide among women and children like a bunch of cowards. Go get 'em.

I remember that Chad. You could be right I told my wife the same thing.

Steve Skubinna:

The truth is that since 9/11 OBL became largely irrelevant save as a symbol. Alive or dead, he has already started the machinery in motion. Prior to 9/11 most terror groups had a hands off policy regarding attacks within the US proper, given the amount of financial and PR support they get from the useful idiots, fellow travelers, and fifth columnists. Burying him won't make any difference at all in whom we fight and why, although the left will pretend it means the WOT is over.

Which is why, I think, we haven't heard any confirmation or even speculation from the GWB administration over OBL's current status.

Uh, could I get some clarification here on how exactly you kill someone with affection? Or is that some kind of Muslim thing?

Big Mo:

I've thought he was dead since Tora Borra or shortly after. And I think that's the real reason why Bush went from "wanted: dead or alive" to "not important" (or whatever it was he said).

We nailed him, or he died from kidney failure, and we felt it was much more important that we went along with the fiction that he was alive than say he was pushing up daisies.

I have no real proof, of course. But it would be so simple for him to contact some sympathetic journalist and do an interview that proves without a doubt he was alive.

Chad:

I think they buried him real deep so they could keep claiming we'd never get their "great leader". However he died, I hope it was in pure and utter agony over months of suffering. His misguided followers will be hearing tapes of him for years to come, just like all of those "Elvis" sightings that we hear about.

Chad:

Did Jimmy Carter forge a lasting peace, or was it Egypt and Israel that were tired of shooting at each other? I seem to remember both sides hating the sinai, and trying to cross it with an army. I hate to break it to you vixon and iron man. OBL is room temp. maybe even a little less. He was not a "highly trained proffessional", there is no such terrorist. Not unless you work for a government. Proffessional means you get paid to do it. It's your proffession. Terrorism is not a proffession, it's a criminal act. As to highly trained, I'd have to say mostly self taught. Not that he wasn't good at it, but that was more of a paranoid nature, personal wealth, and being fairly smart. We should've offed the guy back in the 90's.

james griffin:

The tape in which bin Laden "admits" 9/11 was a joke. They guy's nose was too small and short and he was right handed. Usama was left handed.
Even the FBI admit that...also the "FBi's Most Wanted" is only after UBL for the African Embassy bombings. Asked about this the State Dept. say they have'nt enough evidence to pin 9/11 on him in court. But enough to go war?
Ask yourself this...from the 2nd tower being hit to the Pentagon strike there was 35 mins for Cheney to launch fighters and shoot down a commercial airliner. Andrews Airbase was about 12 miles away, so only a few mins flying time.
Where were the F16's????
Under oath and in camera Norman Minetta the Transport Sec said that they were briefed by a young man on the progress of a plane heading for Washington but Cheney did nothing. You can see it on the internet.(Left out of the Commission report by Zelikow).
Wake up Amaerica.....just ask yourself why no interception?
