Bin Laden dead ?

French Newspaper L’Est Republicain has published a report, citing sources in the French security services who claim that Osama bin Laden is dead of typhoid, having been unable treatment by virtue of his isolation.

« Selon une source habituellement fiable, les services saoudiens auraient désormais acquis la conviction qu’Oussama Ben Laden est mort. Les éléments recueillis par les saoudiens indiquent que le chef d’Al-Qaïda aurait été victime, alors qu’il se trouvait au Pakistan le 23 août 2006, d’une très forte crise de typhoïde ayant entraîné une paralysie partielle de ses membres inférieurs. Son isolement géographique, provoqué par une fuite permanente, aurait rendu impossible toute assistance médicale. Le 4 septembre 2006, les services saoudiens de sécurité ont recueilli les premiers renseignements faisant état de son décès. Ils attendraient, d’obtenir davantage de détails, et notamment le lieu exact de son inhumation, pour annoncer officiellement la nouvelle ».

  1. Yeah observa, you got that one right. The whole gwot, was/is never actually about OBL at all, and even less about nasty dictators, democracy and actual terrorists.

    It is ‘cold war redux’, or rather a whole generation of right wing tragics hoped it would be. The only problem is, that that lovely quote about the repetition of history returning as farce, never had a truer ‘ring’ about it.

    Oh, BTW I like the term ‘multicultural wet’. Where did you get it? Did you make it up? Did someone at Quadrant think it up. They are great those people there aren’t they. So absolutley reliable-you know, on all the really important serious moral questions, they show the kind of tough minded, no nonesense, reality facing backward looking hokum you would expect from a buch of tired old men, and a few ambitious stupid women.
