    I'm sure there are plenty of kidney dialysis machines set up all over the reqion.

    Of course when you're surving on the illegal drug trade anything's possible.

    This proves that the French hate the USA. They will go to extreme measures to thwart any effort on the war on terror! Why else would Chirac say it's not credible!?!?!? They want the USA to run in circles because it amuses them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!












    LOL, don't take this post seriously

    since the global terrorism has been developing to this stage, does bin laden dead or not really matter anymore?

    I'm pretty sure he'll turn up some time between the Congressional elections and 2008 when it's politically convenient.

    Idiomatic transliteration always makes for the best reading. :)

    so if UBL is dead, and he died of natural causes or disease, and the info is being kept secret to provide maximum political benefit for the GOP -- does the bush administration really collect credit for his dying?

    "we kept him from a hospital" is really pretty weak.

    Well IF he is dead from natural causes, then Bush won't get the big ratings boost for essentially doing nothing to catch him.

    OBL won't get the funeral march martyrs parade either.

    Just a whole lot of senseless death and destruction left in their wake.

    But he said unto them, Except I shall see that they’ve found in his hands the blueprint of his rails, and put their hand to test the DNA from his side, I will not believe.

    Now why would the Saudi SS have such good info about ObL? Doesn't that strike anyone as being just a little strange?

    Tongue in cheek, King? He did show up in a video right before the election and helped swing the polls in Bush's favor. Whether the polls in Ohio were also swung in Bush's favor through other means is another topic altogether, but al Qaeda always seems to do its best to focus US elections on the "war on terror" to the benefit of the frothing at the mouth crowd.

    Not only was he a Saudi national, but he has quite an extensive family that is well connected in Saudi Arabia. Saudi intelligence would actually be a quite logical place for news of this sort to reach.

    Of course, that is in no way an endorsement of the veracity of the information.

    It STILL bugs me that after grounding the entire nation after the events of 9/11
    that the Bin Laden family was given special permission to leave the country.

    We dont here much from the republicans on that one do we? Im sure the fact that Bush's failing oil businesses were financed by this family of Bin Ladens has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Kinda makes you wonder what they had on Bush that was powerful enough to make him jump through hoops to get them out of the country so fast.

    The Bush family and the Saudi royals are family. They are as close as blood relatives.
