PARIS (AP) - The head of terrorist network al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, has died, according to information from the Saudi police, transmitted by the Directorate-General of External Services (DGSE), and reported on the Lorraine daily newspaper L'Est republicain in its Saturday edition.
"According to a commonly reliable source, the Saudi police believes that Osama Bin Laden has died," said a September 21st confidential note from the DGSE classified as "defense." L'Est republicain will publish it in its Saturday edition. The note, specified the daily newspaper, would be re-printed "un-edited."
According to the note to be published by the L'Est republicain, the Saudi police "would try to obtain more details, in particular the location of the burial site, and then announce the news officially." The DGSE specified in the note that no "jihadist Internet site has for the moment been made aware of the death of Osama bin Laden."
According to the note, "the head of al Qaeda may have fallen victim to a strong case of typhoid fever while in Pakistan, on August 23, 2006," and may have died within a matter of days.
The French news organization transmitted this note to the President of France, to the Defense and Prime Minister and the Ministers of the Interior Department on September 21, according to the regional daily newspaper, which added that a prior note transmitted on September 19th to the leaders of France explained why the Saudi police "sought to confirm the death of Osama bin Laden."
ok I'LL START...
I FEEL THE ICE IS SLOWLY MELTING...
IT SEEMS LIKE YEARS SINCE ITS BEEN HERE...
HERE COMES THE SUN, DO DO DO DOOO
We need another Patton. He had the right attitude.
Maybe because some believe that seeing a video confirms that he's alive. If they see a video of me 200 years from now people will think I'm alive.
If he had died of "poor health", (he's had issues for years), WE may not have killed him. Cavuto asked specifically if WE had done the job.
They may have had to pay the warlords a bit of the reward money, just to help confirm his death. Could still be waiting on testing, not wanting to release information and then have everyone yell "Bush lied"......
Maybe THE tape was confiscated at the time the sample was taken? Is it too much to ask for?

You haven't the slightest idea what a troll looks look. LOL
You're 100% correct.
Later, quite a few FREEPERs turned into trolls and even when they were banned, their drooling sycophants would post long threads for them.
LOL.....I'm as clam as a cucumber. :-)
LOL...but he wasn't a troll.
During your searches, did you find out when the first MODS appeared? I know that FR didn't have any until at least 2000.
That we did!
I think you're spot on, Miss Marple.
"The answer might be that word has reached someone in his family."
I'd like to see the frames around it. AND you know we have better views than that.
No, our government doesn't have to 'splain the photographs that are classified.
There was a big meeting between Karzai and Musharuff in the last couple of weeks, too.
It wasn't released it was leaked:
See here: http://www.kare11.com/news/news_article.aspx?storyid=134420
IMO after it was leaked the gov had to come up with a story. (Note they tried to pull it first.) It may be they changed the date to cover the boots still in the area.
I might add that OBL reveled in his role as leader and spokesman. I have always thought it out of character for him to allow others to appear on the tapes in his place.
On other words, I have long thought him dead.
The Admin Mods sign up date on their profile page is 9/3/01,
but my memory is that they were around before they had the profile thing.
Why don't we ask them.
Hahaha that is so funny.
In the beginning, there was no religion Mod, for example.
Hopefully some MOD will see the ping and come to the thread and tell us.
And no wonder BJ Clinton is all upset and screaming... The hopes for a DemocRAT US Senate and/or House is now just a disappearing mirage.
Maybe Rove poisoned UBL's water supply? ;^)
Are you old enough to be talking to me?
Given the fact that he refered to John Kerry by name in one of the 2004 videos, that seems highly unlikely.
We have dudes that can do Jimmy Stewart better than Jimmy Stewart. Would an imitator's voice show different? These tapes are likely NEVER 1st generation.
I can use these naughty words because I'm older than you.
I'm pretty sure that kind of thing can be detected.
But whatever. I hope he's dead, but I'll believe it when I see the pig intestines being poured into his coffin. (At least that's what I'd do.)
I've seen this before. There is no evidence that it ever happened.
The guy looks like a cadaver. Old video with voiceover..
Id prefer seeing his remains in a pig sty-slowly ground into the earth under the trampling pigs..
How is typhoid fever spread?
Salmonella Typhi lives only in humans. Persons with typhoid fever carry the bacteria in their bloodstream and intestinal tract. In addition, a small number of persons, called carriers , recover from typhoid fever but continue to carry the bacteria. Both ill persons and carriers shed S. Typhi in their feces (stool).
You can get typhoid fever if you eat food or drink beverages that have been handled by a person who is shedding S. Typhi or if sewage contaminated with S. Typhi bacteria gets into the water you use for drinking or washing food. Therefore, typhoid fever is more common in areas of the world where handwashing is less frequent and water is likely to be contaminated with sewage.
Once S. Typhi bacteria are eaten or drunk, they multiply and spread into the bloodstream. The body reacts with fever and other signs and symptoms.
Oh, I remember Eschoir and Ash very well!
Wonder if they've found a home on DU?
I don't know where ASH is, but Eschoir has jumped around the net, joining one anti-FR site after another; though I don't know where he is now.
Interesting that you would ask..... There's a small coffee/cappuccino shop in the lobby where I work, family-run, which happens to be......muslim. Guess what they were serving for lunch yesterday? HOT FRESH SPINACH WRAPS.
Damn, that would have been such a good score.
Agree Completely.. Won't trust any muslim source. Or French sourses either. i.e. Lance Armstrong doping tests
Researching the death of Osama "The Cat" bin Laden. I'm looking to see if this might actually be the final, terminal, 9th of the 9 lives:
October 2001, killed in Tora Bora attack
October 16, 2001, killed by his own men, shot in the back, along with Mullah Omar
December 2001, died of kidney failure
December 2001, died in US led attack (not sure if this was before or after the kidney failure killed him)
Feb 4, 2002 killed by US Hellfire drone launched missile
April 28, 2005, dead of unknown causes, possibly, for the second time, kidney and other organ failure
October 2005, died in earthquake
December 2005, died a third time of kidney failure
August 23, 2006, died of typhoid fever
Yep, this is the 9th life. He's cashed them all in. Definitely dead. This time. Yep. For sure. Uh-huh. Gotta be.......
and during Ramadan!!!
If it had been UBL funeral, and we hit it, we would never have been able to sort out the dna to confirm his death.
God be Praised! LOL
And I thought I knew evertyhing")
Yep, I understand that.. though that's not the reason we didn't strike.. The Terrorists are pure animals that have and will continue to show no mercy towards our troops and us, recent example: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1707038/posts
It would have been a good score.
Did you hear?
