    And right on cue, shortly after former Pakistani premier Bhutto's own slaying, two key al-Qaeda news items appear. First, "senior US officials" are checking into an al-Qaeda claim of responsibility for the assassination, and—lo and behold—"Osama" himself will soon release a message regarding Iraq.

    Bhutto asserted to David Frost less than two months ago that bin Laden had been murdered by Omar Sheikh, whom the Sunday Times once described as "no ordinary terrorist but a man who has connections that reach high into Pakistan's military and intelligence elite and into the innermost circles" of bin Laden and al-Qaeda. (Watch video starting at 5:33 for mentioned part.)

    I'm not saying what she said was true, it could've been a slip-up. What gets me is that she NEVER backs out of it.

    I too have always felt he was dead. I think we got him on one of the very first bombing missions.

    I was reading on Digg that she may have meant OBL's son. I didn't read why they were saying that, but I know some said that it may be the case.

    I wouldn't be suprised if the guy was dead. He had a number of health issues, including some serious kidney problems.

    It may have been a slip-up. But she never backed out of it.

    This is the first time I've heard anything about anyone assassinating OBL, surely that's a slip of the tongue. She may have been talking about Zawahiri, OBL's #2, who is supposed to have organized the assassination of Sadat, or she may have meant to say General Zia or her father. Any other assassinations of note in that area lately? I guess we'll never know now.

    She was as eloquent as she was attractive and also had political charisma and now she's a martyr. This may be the event that turns the Pakistani public against the Islamists and turns the tide. Or it could throw Pakistan into a tailspin and open civil war. These are interesting times.

    This bears watching. Pakistan is a powder keg with many fuses.

    He can't be dead. You posted an article yesterday that he got a kidney transplant from a US doctor in Dubai or somewhere. And also that OBL was a set up by the Bush admin and that Mushariff was a puppet of Bush's so there is no way that Bush would have ordered Musharaiff to kill off OBL.

    According to your stories.
