No. Assuming the gov't and Osama are on spearate sides of this deal and they really think he is a 'terrorist' and a threat to the US, I think they
would keep him until they needed to show that they were really making headway in this war on terrorism. In other words, they'd let us know about it
only if it gave them an enormous advantage to do so.
I think the idea of having him 'out there' somewhere is a better weapon for the US gov't to keep the people afraid. Knowing that he's just around
the corner with another 9/11 is the most powerful tool they could have in keeping us terrorized and willing to trade our rights for security. So even
if they did have him, I don't think they'd let us know.
