The personal character of Bin Laden is fascinating and complex, to those of us in the west he was a monster of biblical proportions but to those who
met the man he was as Ayman al-Zawahri has described him. Any description of his personal character that I have ever come across does refer to him as
a caring loving father. According to journalists who interviewed him he showed them the highest degrees of hospitality, inviting on journalist I read
about to sleep in the same room as himself. When he spoke his tone was soft and his words were articulate yet polite with a vast mix of his religious
rhetoric and ideology filling his words. That however is one side of the man, his warped theological perspectives justified the killing of many
innocents and the suffering of his enemies. He could be harsh and ruthless to those who opposed him, it is said he may have killed one of his mentors
Abdullah Azzam in 1989, however this has never been proven. The two sides of the man are something of a paradox, on the one side a caring father and
host yet on the other a monster who justified mass murder. He was of course human we are all capable of grate evil and grate good.
To get to the OP’s question.
You first have to ask why you think he died in 2001, do you believe he died during the battle of Tora-Bora or do you think he died of kidney failure.
Then there are reports from French and Saudi intelligence that he may have died from Typhoid and claims from Pakistan that he died from other natural
causes. All of these claims have strong counter arguments, many of these claims were later retracted or have been debunked.
The consensus amongst the conspiracy theorists is that he died before 2011 and his death was kept under wraps until it was politically advantageous
for his death to be revealed. If that were the case then would all these claims of his death prior to 2011 not have been counterproductive to the
conspirators? Then why did Bush not take advantage of his death, why allow the kudos to go to a Democrat President? And what about Pakistan how do you
get them in on the conspiracy without the sympathetic ISI blowing the whistle on the entire operation and expose the American President as a liar?
The idea that Operation Neptune Spear was staged to boost Obama’s popularity is just too much of a risk for the administration and when one thinks
about it logically makes absolutely no sense. The only reasonable conclusion is that Bin Laden was indeed either killed or captured during the
