Bin Laden May Be Toast
Now we don’t know if it is true, but some people are reporting that Osama bin laden may have died of Typhoid in Pakistan.
Some people think it sucks because we didn’t get to kill him. I disagree. Nothing would be more trouble for the Pakastano government, or any of the other US friendly governments in the region if we had killed OBL in their countries. They too would be facing the jihad crap from the terrorist friendly states like Iraq is.
If the report is true, and OBL did die of typhoid thi is a major achievement of the Bush doctrine. This would mean that the other nations who are helping the US track and hunt down terrorists are still on board. If OBL did die in Pakistan, then it is even a bigger achievement.
If OBL died of typhoid it means he wasn’t living in the comfort of a base or stronghold of al Queda, but rather in some really less than secure conditions. He was in hiding, not leading his terror network. He was being forced to live in darkness. He was forced to hide in the darkest regions, which, if they did not have clean water, also did not have good contact to the outside world.
Dead or alive before this, it is proof that the head of al Queda was not at the helm.
