Isn't he head of the organisation that insisted that Saddam had chemical ballistic missiles that endangered the entire world and were about to be fired unless we went in, had him executed and took his oil? Not a good track record so far. Boy who cried wolf and all that....
But...of course Bin Liner is in Pakistan - it's not like the son of a Saudi billionaire would risk roughing it in Afghanistan when things are going rough. He fled to Pakistan years ago. Propaganda is one thing, but he's keener on creature comforts off-camera than Bear "Bacon" Grylls!
Perhaps and that's why we were so nice to Mushie and the ISI while they were vigorously supporting the Taliban. Makes Chamberlain in Munich look overly assertive.
Bloody golden goose for the Pak army. I doubt they'd hand over the lanky fecker even for Saudi gelt. Pak brass trousered a few billion in aid from DC thanks to him. There are rumors BL died of natural causes a few years back and they have been keeping it quiet. I would not put it past them, either keeping stum or seeding the rumors.
