Every so often, the question arises of where the al-Qaeda leader has vanished to.
bin Laden’s whereabouts were a mystery as far back as 1999.
Osama bin Laden, the Saudi millionaire accused by the United States of plotting bomb attacks on two U.S. embassies in Africa, has left Afghanistan, Afghan sources said Saturday.
People have been asking the “Where’s Osama?” question for awhile now. The CIA would like to know.
The question has inspired some take-offs.
There’s several versions of the popular “Where’s Waldo?” children’s game out–on the Internet anyway–featuring the man who murdered almost 3000 people on September 11 2001.
The Iraqi version of “Where’s Osama?”
Some commentators say that Osama Bin Laden is dead; that he’s food for the worms. Others point to the stream of threats and instructions he’s issued via videotape.
Every time a new Bin Laden tape appears, the questions start again.
Given the political outlook of most Hollywood celebrities, Osama should be a star in a motion picture.
Many have speculated that Osama is sick and tied to a kidney dialysis machine somewhere in a cave in Pakistan.
That might be true.
Or he might be dead.
Or, he may be alive and in disguise, living in the Middle East.
Although, with a price of $50 million on his head, surely some enterprising youngster would set himself up for life–if they knew where he was.
At least one guy in the picture above has an idea for tracking bin Laden down in a hurry.
Although these pictures are amusing, the man they portray is not. However, it’s said that one of the better ways to deal with stress is through humor.
So be it.
It’s been 2372 days since September 11 2001. That’s 6 years, 5 months, 29 days, including today.
2372 days since 2998 people from over 80 countries lost their lives.
Most of them were Americans.
It would be satisfying to know.
If he’s found, his fate will most likely be anything but humorous.
