I reckon our troops had the oppurtunity to capture him at that moment, but in the confusion of battle they lost sight of him and Bin Laden managed to slip away. I say we just bomb the heck out of that country and that's the end of that. (No nukes though as that's just distasteful).

Why do people keep trying to resurect Bin Laden. Bin Laden was killed in the caves at Tora Bora. You want to see his body as sure proof that he is dead? Tora Bora cave system was hit by numerous bunker busting bombs and Bin Laden was buried under half a mountain. You want to see his body get a really good excavation company and in probably a few years you might get to his body. The intel services do not want him dead. Dead he's a martyr. 'Alive' he can be manipulated to any scenario. Fully understand Bin Laden is dead. No one can convince me lived after Tora Bora because before then he couldn't keep himself off videos or news films. But since then nothing, nada. Just supposed sightings or audio tapes, which with modern inteligence people can manipulate. Alive he's useful. dead is dead.

Its called first hand experience, I was 2nd Recon Bn scout sniper.
I personally think he is dead so they don’t have anyone to protect even if that were the case.
