New Evidence that Bin Laden is dead ?

A terrorism expert says he has seen evidence showing al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is either seriously ill or dead.

Dr Clive Williams, director of terrorism studies at the Australian National University, says documents provided by an Indian colleague suggested bin Laden died of massive organ failure in April last year.

"It does seem reasonably convincing based on the evidence that I've been provided with that he's certainly either severely incapacitated or dead at this stage," Dr Williams said.

Dr Williams said Ayman al-Zawahiri, bin Laden's deputy who was the target of a US air strike in Pakistan last week, has been making all statements on behalf of the terror network for the past year.

Dr Williams said proving whether the terrorist leader was still alive might be impossible.

"It's hard to prove or disprove these things because there hasn't really been anything that allows you to make a judgment one way or the other," Dr Williams said.

"But it does seem strange that Dr Zawahiri has been making all of the statements since then, and nothing's been heard from bin Laden since, I think, the December of the year before." ( Note : There is plenty of evidence to suggest the December tape in question is a fake)

Dr Williams said even if bin Laden was dead, those who upheld the same philosophies would continue to fight for their cause.

Of course we have been here many times before . We have posted on the 'claim' of his death more than once ( the last such post is here ) . It is worth bearing in mind , with his constant need for dialysis it is extremely unlikely that he survived long after the attack on Tora Bora in 2001 and the odds on him still being alive today are next to zero .

Anyway the death of Bin laden must come as quite a shock to those who went to his Funeral in December 2001 . Still just like the movies I am sure he will make a few more comebacks yet. Just like our other constantly reincarnating nemesis Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

I always promoted the idea that Bin Laden has ceased to exist long time ago...
But that is not a practical imagery!
We need enemies to "exist" and be on the run to fullfil our mission!
Fear is the nucleus to maintain the war on terror.
With no enemy picture alive, it is a tough thing to conduct.

P.S. Thanks for visiting my sacred island in Maine - it is my haven of tranquility amongst this crazy mess.

Iran is heating up:

Mr Danesh-Jafari's warning added weight to veiled threats by Iran's president on Saturday. Iran had a "cheap means" of achieving its nuclear "rights", Mr Ahmadinejad said, adding: "You [the west] need us more than we need you. All of you today need the Iranian nation."
