Are you sure? That would make it a lot easier to find him as you need a lot of materials for dialysis and a certain degree of sterile equipment. Furthermore the dialysis needs to take place 2-3 times a week, unless the kidneys didn't recover which happens from time to time and you can skip the dialysis for some weeks to month.
Broken kidneys require constant monitoring by doctors, food control and an environment that's comfortable for the patient.
I wonder if you get this in cavelands Pakistan
If Osama is really a weekly patient for dialysis he wasn't living there, damn sure.

Independent reports from Islamabad and Peshawar suggest that :
* Bin Laden, who suffers from renal deficiency, has been periodically undergoing dialysis in a Peshawar military hospital with the knowledge and approval of the Inter-Services Intelligence, (ISI) if not of Gen.Pervez Musharraf himself.
Pakistan intelligence sources tell CBS News that bin Laden was spirited into a military hospital in Rawalpindi for kidney dialysis treatment.
"On that night," said a medical worker who wanted her identity protected, "they moved out all the regular staff in the urology department and sent in a secret team to replace them." She said it was treatment for a very special person and "the special team was obviously up to no good."
"They military had him surrounded," said a hospital employee who also wanted his identity masked, "and I saw the mysterious patient helped out of a car. Since that time," he said, "I have seen many pictures of the man. He is the man we know as Osama bin Laden. I also heard two army officers talking to each other. They were saying that Osama bin Laden had to be watched carefully and looked after."
It was Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf who said in public what many suspected: that bin Laden suffers from kidney disease, saying he thinks bin Laden may be near death.
His evidence — watching the most recent video, showing a pale and haggard bin Laden, his left hand never moving. Bush administration officials admit they don't know if bin Laden is sick or even dead.
"With respect to the issue of Osama bin Laden's health, I just am...don't have any knowledge," said Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
They will. They know how to keep things secret. If Usamah isn't captured yet but pinned down he won't be able to get out however

There is no way we have OBL right now. Something that big could not be kept quiet. If we capture him, we will all know within a short amount of time. The government would probably want to keep it a secret to get all of the intel out of him and to prevent attacks that are probably planned to start upon his death/capture, but they won't be able to keep it quiet.

Ok people this how the administration is going to play the capture of bin-laden.
It's going to way 2 or 3 days prior to elections. The reason if this is, most Americans will be so "surprised" that they will call him hero and the popularity will bring him back for 4 more years. Remember a lot of people don't sit and think immediately most of the time.
If he brings bin-laden a week or two weeks before election that will give time to the opposition to counter attack and that, is not an option.:lol
One or two weeks are enough for most Americans to realize that it was all planned.
So this is my opinion of how is going to play with American public.

We here at ATS know for sure, OBL is already in custody. He is the proverbial Red Herring. Most likely he's been dead for sometime on ICE, and they will unfreeze his butt just in time, to push the fence rider's to vote for 4 more years.
I don't belive main stream media, the only thing I watch it for is local news, and weather.
Something that smacks to me of why the media just bamboozles and lies to the public, is this;
Barely any Demonstators at the DNC, I live in Boston so I know. The media Begrudginly reports 10,000 protestors or more, and violent one's at that, at the RNC.
So if Bush is the United States darling, and he is quote un quote ahead in the polls by double digits, why are there many, many, more Protestors at the RNC? I got 3 words for you "Media Polls Lie"
The Farce, Blanketed on the television, Bush is the popular choice, and Kerry is not.
The Reality, Huge protests at the RNC, barely a Peep at the DNC. You do the math, Government controlled Media...
The general populace, let's their media do the thinking for them.
Plus with how broken the Electoral College is, the only state that matters is one on the fence, your vote will not be heard unless you are in a state that has no majority Party Populace.
In Fact I'm going to start a thread, on the Electoral College.
