Jacques Chirac clings to the idea bin Laden still lives but he wouldn’t understand how sick one can get fighting Typhoid Fever with no antibiotics while hiding out in a cave in Afghanistan if he caught it on his pinky toe.
Chirac says no evidence bin Laden has died
PARIS - President Jacques Chirac said Saturday that information contained in a leaked intelligence document raising the possibility that Osama bin Laden may have died of typhoid in Pakistan last month is “in no way whatsoever confirmed.”
Chirac said he was “a bit surprised” at the leak and has asked Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie to probe how a document from a French foreign intelligence service was published in the French press.
The regional newspaper l’Est Republicain on Saturday printed what it described as a copy of a confidential document from the DGSE intelligence service citing an uncorroborated report from Saudi secret services that the leader of the al-Qaida terror network had died.
Silly Fwenchman Jacques Chirac is more concerned about who leaked the news than the actual content. Other than that, he has no comment.
What is today anyway? September 23rd? Thirty days hath September. One week left until the October surprise. Daily Kos and friends must be frantic.
I have had my doubts that bin Laden was still alive ever since the invasion of Afghanistan in late 2001. After all, he hasn’t been seen on video. How can we be sure that it is really his voice in all the recordings?
Typhoid Fever is no longer a big problem in America because our caring civilization requires that children be immunized. We care about life. If Osama did indeed die of Typhoid Fever that’s amusing to me. He deserved it and so much more.
Maybe this is why Pakistan’s Musharrif called off the dogs.
Or maybe we are trying to get a reaction from him.
Could this be the reason why Bill Clinton went batty with Chris Wallace?
ALLAHPUNDIT slept in today but still has an interesting post on the news with loads of great links and trackbacks.
The Median Sib has the photo we all hope will soon be bin Laden’s new lodgings.
