Osama In Coma, Near Death
John Batchelor, WABC Radio - NYC ^ | February 15, 2003 | TommyDale

Posted on 02/15/2003 8:15:06 AM PST by TommyDale

Just before midnight last night, John Batchelor, on location in Kazahkistan, reported that Osama Bin Laden is under heavy guard in a cave in Western Pakistan. He is yellow in color, from failing kidneys, and slips in and out of a coma. The required kidney dialysis has failed to help him.

Apparently, when he comes out of a coma for a brief period, they will record his voice. Of course, if he dies soon, he will be denied his wish for martyrdom. It was stated that some see this as a punishment from God.

Exactly. He looked awful bad a few weeks after the bombing in Ashcantistan started, if you recall like me, one of the last live sort of photos of him showed. His lips were purple and he looked as if he was on his last leg. Wish I could find that photo.
Yours aye!

Dialysis staff? 3-7 days might be long enough if the condition is already poor.

I still believe bin Laden is cave caulk somewhere under Tora Bora. All the "evidence" nothwithstanding, I think he's been dead for more than a year.

I have a feeling you're right ... the guy has an ego larger than Pakistan. If he had survived Tora Bora, he have been releasing videos every week.

Symptoms

Symptoms of ESRD include weight loss, nausea or vomiting, general malaise, fatigue, headache, hiccups, itching, decreased urination, easy bruising or bleeding, lethargy, difficulty breathing and seizures. Symptoms may be mild until kidney function has dropped to 15 percent or less of normal.

Usually by the time ESRD occurs there is a long history of kidney disease. Levels of creatinine and blood urea nitrogen, chemicals ordinarily removed by the kidneys, are markedly elevated. Dialysis is generally considered when a specific set of problems has developed, including:

I think you are probably right!

They are trying to keep his status "alive" until it suits them to martyr him. Maybe blame us for an illegal act?

My personal favorite theory, at least as far as how wickedly optimal it would be if true, is that the CIA is holding Osama, and it will be arranged that his martyrdom takes place in Bagdad. Muahhahahahahahahah.

Well it would explain the sudden switch to infrequent audio messages from the post-9/11 finger-wagging videos he seemed to enjoy.

Wherever he is, he's obviously in no condition to be filmed. The terrorists are sure to concoct some lie to glorify his death, consistent with the falsehoods with which the life of their Prophet, Mohammed is surrounded.

The truth is that bin Laden has, or will die a sick and broken man, hiding from the consequences of his actions in a hole in the ground, like the troglodyte he is.

Maybe he was wounded but they don't want to admit that so are sticking to the kidney story.

John Batchelor and Paul Alexander host the late-night talk show on WABC Radio in New York City. It is heard in 38 states. Their sources have been quite accurate in the past.
Ther is an article about them from the New York Times at

I like your theory. Mine is similar, that Osama is actually already dead, or near death, but the CIA doesn't want anyone to know it yet. We want to DENY him the ability to be a martyr, and we can't afford to tell of his death (or imminent death) because liberals will immediately tell us the "war on terrorism is over".

Assuming this is all true, it would be wonderful if Osama's body could be somehow captured and fed to pigs, a video made and broadcast on the islamic channel.

Better that he be in a coma than moving toward Miami with a new face. May he die the death of every person he has directly or indirectly killed. For eternity.

He is yellow in color, from failing kidneys, and slips in and out of a coma.

Batchelor and Alexander are heard in 38 states now? I thought they were only on WABC in NYC.
