Do you think Osama bin Laden is still alive?

Asked by troubleinharlem (7976points) September 21st, 2010

Do you think that he’s still holed up in a cave somewhere, or that he’s been dead for a long time, and why?

I think he is. It wouldn’t be hard to hide out in a big city in Pakistan. Just have one loyal person bring you food/supplies and never leave your room.

The problem is is that we actually care. Even after we found out that the mastermind beind 9/11 is already in custody in Quantanimo. KSM is the mastermind! Osama is just a figurehead that has cost us trillions to Diefy him.

It doesn’t really matter.

If he is alive he is just an old man who spent a lot of time hiding out in a cave while his importance in the grand scheme of things steadily eroded to the point of irrelevance.

If he is dead, he was denied his opportunity for martyrdom because we (wisely) chose not to parade his head around on a stick.

Some think that we may have killed him and simply kept it hush hush so as to not make him a martyr.

If we killed him, it would be announced, since killing him is a prerequisit for leaving Afganistan.

To believe he is dead is a nice thought, unfortunately I think Osama bin Laden is alive, and I doubt he’s in a cave somewhere. He has the resources to keep himself safe. The Bin Laden family fortune has been estimated at 5 billion dollars. If he was dead it would also make sense to keep it hush hush, but I really don’t think so. Wish he was dead.The peanut gallery at my house thinks he’s dead.
