Evidence in last year for or against Bin Laden being alive
I think he's dead and that comments Bush has made about him previously indicate he knows it, doesn't care about that aspect of it, but nobody is gonna blow the whistle because it's good to keep Bin Laden as the Whip-Up-Terra frontman.

Reading today about Zarquawi getting pushed to the front of the bus as the New-Terra-Man while the govt downplays Bin Laden makes BL being dead high-odds.

What's the proof, pro or con, for B L being alive at this point? Links?

1. Audio Tape in April 2004
http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/asiapcf/04/15/binladen.ta... /

Arab language TV network Al-Arabiya aired Wednesday what it said was an audio tape from bin Laden, in which he threatened revenge on America, but offers a truce to European states.

The CIA -- after evaluating the tape -- said Thursday that although it's impossible to be absolutely sure the voice on the tape is bin Laden's, it most likely is.

CNN experts who have listened to the tape say the speaker sounds like bin Laden but there is no way for CNN to independently confirm the speaker's identity.

Dubai-based Al-Arabiya declined to say how it received the tape, but the speaker referred to events that occurred less than a month ago.
