In a strange way it makes more sense, Omar is locked away, trial over, no visitors. One day he gets a transfer, and the guards never see him again,
and really don't care, as long as the paperwork is in order.
Now who better could you recruit to "escape" (so bin Laden would be told) than this guy. Who could get close to bin Laden better than this guy? Who
would love a change of name and the chance to run a newspaper stand in some banana republic with a swiss bank account to draw on in his old age?
bin Laden might name names, tell secrets, so he could never come to trial, and after a while he's no longer a worthwhile asset. He's got too well
known of a face to hide under an assumed name. But Omar isn't remembered. Right now, 95 people out of a 100 couldn't pick Omar out of a lineup, much
less recognize him on the street.
And then, in four or five years, you release the news that Omar died in a prison hospital of prostrate cancer, and all is well.
Just a stray idea.
