Is Osama dead, alive or just a cardboard poster boy for endless war...?

i'm glad to see this possibility getting a little more traction in the traditional media, even if it IS the uk media... i have harbored a nagging suspicion for a very long time that the "war on terror" was a red herring, carefully crafted to keep us in a perpetual state of war... do ya s'pose that maybe, just maybe, some of the truth is starting to emerge...?
Undeterred, Barack Obama has launched a fresh operation to find him. Working with the Pakistani Army, elite squads of U.S. and British special forces were sent into Waziristan this summer to 'hunt and kill' the shadowy figure intelligence officers still call 'the principal target' of the war on terror.

This new offensive is, of course, based on the premise that the 9/11 terrorist is alive. After all, there are the plethora of 'Bin Laden tapes' to prove it.

Yet what if he isn't? What if he has been dead for years, and the British and U.S. intelligence services are actually playing a game of double bluff?

What if everything we have seen or heard of him on video and audio tapes since the early days after 9/11 is a fake - and that he is being kept 'alive' by the Western allies to stir up support for the war on terror?

Incredibly, this is the breathtaking theory that is gaining credence among political commentators, respected academics and even terror experts.

like i've repeatedly said, at this point in my advanced state of cynicism, i believe everything and i believe nothing...
