I agree that Bin Laden is still alive. And, I also agree that the last thing we (meaning the US government) wants is a martyred Bin Laden. I think
the comment that he will "go out with a bang" and the do everything to assure his own state of martyrdom is probably right. One, it makes political
sense for him and his cause and , also, if he really does believe what he says he believes, he would want to be a martyr for personal, religious
I've toyed with the idea that we have him prisoner and are just not spilling the beans...holding him for the most opportune time (ie: the elections),
but my real, gut feeling is that he's very much alive and surrounded by his supporters.
