Do you think Osama Bin Laden still roams this earth?

I would say he's been dead for some time now. He hasn't made a video tape in years, and although they claim his last audio tape was legit, I don't buy it. It's in Al Quaeda's, and your governments best interests that he remain "Alive" to you people, as a sort of boogieman, although few people seem to even remember who he is, and at least we've stopped blaming 9/11 for just about everything short of our bowel movements.

And also I had no idea that the unit in the CIA dedicated to finding him (Set up under Clinton I might add) was disbanded in 2005 :?

You forgot the option I'd select. "Who cares?"

Just wondering . . . who are these "you people" you're talking about?

Dead and most likely cremated as to prevent the finding of his body.

He will be the eternal bogeyman now

I think the majority of people (those who's heads receive sunshine) know who he is. And, IMO, it makes no difference whether he's alive or dead. Like Lord Tammerlain says, "He will be the eternal bogeyman."

If he's as cagey as many would have us believe, he would have been smart enough to pre-record enough video to make us believe he's 125 years old.

OBL is the boogie-person***, representative of fear and ignorance.
"9-11" was not that long ago.
Such an event - to those people who have forgotten, ship them over to Iran/Iraq/Afghanistan/Pakistan to make them remember.....
***just a little politically correct sillyness....lol.
It would be great, if he were caught...I'd imprison him in a pig sty, better yet, with wild boars. I have nothing against these beasts.

No Muslim will ever permit another Muslim to be cremated, it is against the teachings of the Koran.

IMO I think it possible he still lives.
