bin Laden Probably Still Alive

The good news: We may still be able to interrogate him.

The bad news, via the Times of London, is that we may still be able to interrogate him:

Aftab Khan Sherpao, Pakistan'’s interior minister, responded to questions about Bin Laden last night by saying: "“We have no such information. I have never heard anything about this."”

Intelligence officials in America and Asia insisted they would have known about the report if it had been true, and said no such information had crossed their desks in recent days. One Washington-based official said: "“I don'’t think this is a piece of information that would remain secret for long — no one would have any interest in keeping it quiet."”

A source with indirect links to Al-Qaeda claimed Bin Laden had been seen alive by one of his commanders earlier this month.
