Bin Laden is dead?

by Ariel (editor), Venice, CA, September 23, 2006


A French newspaper L'Est Republicain published today an article claiming the death of Osama bin Laden, the world's most wanted terrorist. The newspaper cited a leaked report from the DGSE, the French

"According to a usually reliable source, Saudi security services are now convinced that Osama bin Laden is dead," said the intelligence report.

French president Jacques Chirac, along with a number of international officials said that the information couldn't be confirmed. Some however talk of a fabricated report from the Saudis.

IntelCenter director Ben N. Venzke said that he would be surprised if this report was true, adding that Al-Qaida would have been the first to release an official report of his death in order to control the way it unfolds.

If this report happened to be true, is bin Laden's death going to change anything in the war against terrorism? Since 9/11, the world's most wanted terrorist seems to appear more like a fading shadow of Al-Qaida than an actual threat.
