Typhoid Osama?

Posted by Mark on September 23, 2006

With apologies to Mary….typhoid may be given a new name. A not-so secret French document has leaked rather strange news:

France and the United States said on Saturday they could not confirm a report that Osama bin Laden had died and France launched a probe into how a secret document containing the claim was leaked.

French regional daily L’Est Republican, published in Nancy, quoted a document from France’s DGSE foreign intelligence service as saying the Saudi secret services were convinced the al Qaeda leader had died of typhoid in Pakistan in late August.

Uh…don’t hold your burqa breath. Nothing short of LOPPING off his head….and providing film to Al Jazeera for the Arab world to see- would I believe Osama is dead. C’mon….Al Qaeda would never let that be known. His legend and myth are too important…

Time magazine separately posted an article on its website citing an unidentified Saudi source, who claimed bin Laden was stricken with a water-borne disease and may already be dead.

Osama dead?….nah….he’s alive…but the question is: does he have a 1001 Arabian nights left?
