Insurance almost never covers an act of war. that it what they will claim (esp. if we declare war on osama). check the fine print on your life, home, etc. insurance policy.

An action isn't an act of war just because the insurance company says it is. War can only be declared by another state - anything else is just criminal action by, um, criminals.

Assuming it is Bin Laden: The U.S. does not recognize the Taliban as the legitimate rulers of Afghanistan, so it wasn't a nation that did it. Insurance companies will have to pay.
