I think the hideout of OBL must satisfie a few criteria to elude capture:
- out of direct or indirect (pakistan) influence of the USA
- an inner circle of true believers in the extremist muslim cause, in order not to get sold out for a reward.
......try Cheznya for example, the usa can't look there, because the russians wouldn't like usa involvement overthere, the russians would capture
OBL also if they have the change, but other than the big cities, the russians do not really control Cheznya , there is plenty room for hideouts and
extremist muslimrebels that would grand OBL hospitallity ?????
Syria, while syrian middlemen continously pop up in international terrorist plots, i don't believe they would like to harbour OBL inside their
borders, to avoid pretext for an american invasion.
Iran, would be a good one, exactly because it's highly unlikely
OBL is known to be proud and never allowed sjji'ite fighter to join the Mujahedin
during the war in Afghanistan ("They are not real muslims" he said) , likewise I would expect him to decline an unlikely invitation of Teheran, also
Iran is not exactly waiting for invasion pretext, not with their precious "peacefull" nuclear program nearing completion.
