Bin Laden dead from Typhoid Fever?

Recommended Posts

From France's L'Est Republicain, English version by WorldNetDaily.

Osama bin Laden died within days of contracting typhoid fever in Pakistan last month, according to unnamed Saudi police sources quoted today in the French daily L'Est Republicain.

"According to a commonly reliable source, the Saudi police believe that Osama Bin Laden has died," said a Sept. 21 confidential note transmitted by the Directorate-General of External Services.

If true, what an underwhelming way to go. I was expecting (and hoping for,) capture by U.S. forces, and a real trial. Although this ignoble of a death guarantees that it's not a "martyr's death", at least.

Please note, this is not confirmed by any other source at this point. It is one French newspaper, citing anonymous sources.

Could not have happened to a more deserving fellow. :)

Boring sentiments, from simple minds?

Not really, according to Chavez (and Muslim extremists), Bush is the Diablo (must be a Lamborghini fan, I guess)...I can still smell the sulfur ;)

Even if Bin Laden is dead, terrorism continues, extremists are alive and well in Iraq.

At anyrate, Bin Laden will not go on trial, he'll commit suicide before then. He's already a 'martyr' in the minds of some. Focus on the causes, treating the symptoms rarely proves effective in the long run. Simplistic analysis, a la Q & FS is an excercise in futility and ignorance. And that ends our Jessica Simpson lesson for the evening.

I don't reall¥ have 480 posts (at least 5 of them are "hidden"....deleted by hypocritical mods)

News reports on this here in Oz have two different stories; 1, that he has passed away, and 2, that he is still alive, but is in a critical condition.

However as Udaman has mentioned, this is not the end of the saga, just the beginning...

Best if he really passed away, saves a lot of misery and money.

Put Bin Laden in jail and probably several innocent people will be captured to force the U.S. to release him. They even might cut off more heads....

Not longer amongst us is best. Look at Saddam, the trial goes on and on .... and for what?

If OBL is really dead, that would be a major pain in ze ass for the U.S. It will take years for American Govt agencies to find/train/equip a replacement.

Sounds convenient. If it really happened, well, sayonara. If not, he's got to realize that such a report wouldn't be taken seriously by the U.S. Government.

Say a body turns up. Do we have a way of verifying that it really is Osama?
