Bin Laden possibly dead; US silent

JNN 25 Dec 2010 : A former White House spokesman has lashed out at the US government for using ‘Osama bin Laden’ as a pretext to continue its occupation of Afghanistan.

Suggesting bin Laden may be dead, ex-spokesman Robert Weiner and James Lewis, a US national security analyst at Robert Weiner Associates wrote “Since 2004, we have seen no new bin Laden videos.”

The article published in The Washington Times last Thursday read

“We’ve only heard audios. One video released in 2007 could be a compilation of older videos. So why does the intelligence community continue to support the impression that he’s alive?”

The article read “Last week, al-Qaeda issued its annual Christmas threat to the United States, promising suicide bombings during the holidays. Here’s a better idea for a Christmas present from al-Qaeda: a video showing Osama bin Laden – or his grave.”

The two analysts in their article said “Is bin Laden dead or alive? Nobody seems to know for sure, or, if anybody does, he isn’t saying. The White House’s Afghanistan-Pakistan review this month didn’t even mention him despite an ongoing, decade-long manhunt.”

They also underlined that bin Laden is unlikely to be still alive due to his ill health.
