If OBL is dead and I were in power and wanted to keep this war going I would not admit it. I think he is dead and unfortunately the administration is going to keep using him to further it's justification to go after Iran. [Edited by Don W]
I hope they do not mix it up with Iran. This is a tool that Iran will play just as well as the US; it could get ugly. Iran is in a rather bad position with the rest of the world. It's almost a repeat of the Saddam thing. Show us the weapons or we get you. This time it's stop or we get you. Bad scene either way.

- G.W. Bush March 2002
Bin Laden's voice was detected regularly until [14 December 2001] by intelligence operatives monitoring radio transmissions in Tora Bora, according to the Pentagon [details]. Since then, nothing has been heard from the al-Qa'eda leader and President Bush has hinted in private that bin Laden's silence could mean he has been killed. [Telegraph, 12/28/2001]
