Osama Bin Laden is dead. He's been dead for a couple years now...Those CIA Bin Laden tapes are doctored,cut and paste style to bring forth fear and justification for raids on Americans, further destruction of our civil liberties, and continuing the Endless Wars in Iraq and Afghanistian...
"Pakistan's president says he thinks Osama bin Laden is most likely dead because the suspected terrorist has been unable to get treatment for his kidney disease.
"I think now, frankly, he is dead for the reason he is a ... kidney patient," Gen. Pervez Musharraf said on Friday in an interview with CNN.
Musharraf said Pakistan knew bin Laden took two dialysis machines into Afghanistan. "One was specifically for his own personal use," he said.
"I don't know if he has been getting all that treatment in Afghanistan now. And the photographs that have been shown of him on television show him extremely weak. ... I would give the first priority that he is dead and the second priority that he is alive somewhere in Afghanistan.""http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2000/03/16/world/main172666.shtml
"March 16, 2000 - Suspected terrorist Osama bin Laden reportedly is dying of kidney disease.
The weekly news magazine, quoting "a Western intelligence source who has been tracking him," said the Saudi Arabian millionaire remains mostly conscious and is able to talk and hold meetings.
The kidney disease reportedly had begun to affect bin Laden's liver and associates were trying to obtain a dialysis machine to stabilize his condition. But "the man is dying," Asiaweek quoted the source as saying."

Which leads me to this story:
If Osama Bin Laden is dead how did he conveniently release a new tape? Magic? An Al Quaeda Seance?
"He argued that Washington — even under Obama — was under the thrall of "neoconservatives and the Israeli lobby." He said Obama and White House officials "act like Cheney and Bush and promote the previous policies of fear to market the interests of big companies" and pull Americans into wars that he said have bankrupted the United States.
The main front now is Afghanistan, where the Obama administration is contemplating sending more troops to battle al-Qaida's ally, the Taliban. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, commander of U.S. and NATO forces said Friday he sees no signs of a major al-Qaida presence in the country.In the audiotape, posted late Thursday on Islamic militant Web sites, bin Laden sought to depict Obama as merely continuing the policies of Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney."
I agree with the above two quotes from Fake/Dead Bin Laden. We are fighting an Endless War. We did not formally declare war through Congress. Obama is just a continuation of the Bush Administration. Whomever put this video together at least made an astute observation of the current administration...
There is no way Osama could have survived in the Mountains or Deserts of Afghanistan if he were still alive...Dialysis patients have to be dialyzed every 2-3 days. This is usually a 4 hour process and uses very sensitive equipment. Any sort of damage to the machine or unsterile administration of Dialysis would lead to a quick infection and subsequent death if left untreated. Also Dialysis Patients really aren't the hiking type. They usually have poorly controlled Hypertension, Type 2 Diabetes, End Stage Renal Failure, and a co morbidity such as Congestive Heart Failure or Coronary Artery Disease. I have taken care of these patients...and they are truly disabled and wouldn't last in the unforgiving elements for a second...
