According to Al-Qaida Spokesman Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, Bin Laden is still alive. Of course the Al-Qaida has been soooooo trustworthy to date. Not to mention the simple fact that the message is NOT coming from Mullah Omar or binladen himself. Frankly I doubt that either are alive. If they had been we would have already seen a videotape of either of them holding up a current newspaper, or commenting on their latest attack against the Western World. But we haven't seen or heard anything at all like that. If bin Laden were alive it would be quite odd, considering his penchant for videotape and ranting at the top of his voice.
