Where In The World Is Osama Bin Laden?? by bIG bLOGGER on 5 July 2008 3:42pm
 
I don't exactly know,myself,yet I can't believe that the American Intelligence Agencies don't know where he is. Why hasn't he been captured,as was Saddam Hussein? (Intelligent comments only,please.)

Have you looked behind the couch?

One of our British members posted something about this recently. He is in Eastern Pakistan's tribal areas.
The four hour Frontline special Bush's War spelled it out. We really do not want to be in Afghanistan, known for 2500 years as the "graveyard of Empires."
We would like to catch him, but will not go all out.

I think it was actually British Special Forces that tracked down Saddam but politics dictated that the ( glory ? ) should go to the U.S forces.
I should however add, that there many theories about the truth of the event but most doubt the actual date of his capture and believe he was caught possibly weeks earlier.

tucson mike: Thank you for your useful and intelligent comment:is this posting still available for reference? It has crossed my mind that if the Americans WERE to catch him,there could well be a serious 'Downside'...it would almost certainly cause uproar in the Muslim World,and would probably incite numerous terrorist 'reprisals',worldwide.
JTM: Yes,as usual you seem to be well informed.I have twice heard similar reports (unoffically) that Saddam was caught thanks to the valiant efforts of BRITISH Intelligence, but unfortunately the U>S> claimed the Credit,by announcing "Ladies and Gentlemen...WE got him..."

If Osama is captured, a fitting punishment would be life imprisonment. Why?
He will lose respect among Islamic militants for not being martyred.

Would you give him a trial first Mike ?
What would the charges be and where would he be tried ?
 
Re: Where In The World Is Osama Bin Laden?? by tucsonmike on 7 July 2008 2:36pm
 
Probably some sort of International Tribunal. Not sure where.

Would he be in the dock with Dubya and Blair ?
 
Re: Where In The World Is Osama Bin Laden?? by kazzzz on 8 July 2008 3:17am
 
I still say he's behind the couch.

Don't forget to pop our ex PM in the dock too.
