According to www.homelandsecurityus.com
, it looks like there might be another explanation
to why the U.S. is waiting to declare Osama caught.
"29 January 2004-- Analysis by Sean Osborne: It's connect-a-dot time...
I think there is a valid and logical reason for a State Department denial of the Osama capture reports. I think State spoke up because they are
in active negotiations with Iran over this issue, either via a second party's "good offices" or directly with the Iranians. This has the potential
to make such contact an absolute necessity. The US State Department would have to become involved due to PROTOCOL if Osama were in fact captured on
Next series of dots...
With the immediate and multiple threats of an al Qaeda nuclear attack and/or other weapons of mass destruction on US soil, the ramifications for
Iran would be horrendous to say the least. (a potential retaliatory US ICBM strike or similar against Tehran for example would be in keeping with US
nuclear or WMD use policy).
al Qaeda weapons have been intercepted by Coalition troops in Iraq having crossed the frontier from Iran. These weapons include highly
sophisticated C4 and explosives combined with chemical warheads.
So, what COULD be the State Department be discussing with the Iranians regarding Osama's capture, if he is in custody?
All of the above. Osama captured in Iranian territory. Massive chemical weapons coming from Iranian territory, and the very real possibility of a
nuclear strike or the destruction of an American city at the hands of al Qaeda...all of this with Iranian duplicity would tend to indicate that State
is TELLING the Iranians in no uncertain terms that they MUST comply and act to stop any al Qaeda actions against the US homeland, and US forces in the
southwest Asia area of operations.
Failure to do so will result in the immediate retaliation against Iran by the strategic nuclear forces of the United States. We will hold Iran
responsible for any further actions by al Qaeda against the United States or its allies. Period and exclamation point.
While these hypothesized "discussions" are ongoing, officially the US will be mum on the capture of Osama within Iranian territory. The
Iranian's are being offered a political carrot with the threat of a nuclear stick should they fail their obligations as a civilized nation.
Now, how much you wanna bet the next call the Iranian's make is to Vladimir Putin asking "Now what boss?! The American's have us caught between
Iraq and a hard place!!".

You'll have to go about 3 quarters a way down to verify this.
Remember awhile ago www.homelandsecurityus.com was reporting Osama's capture in Iran?????
Hmmm, I'm going to keep a close eye on this one.
