Invoking the ghost of bin Laden

Boy everybody is talking about bin Laden these days. The jihadis dropped an OBL video with footage circa 2001/2, but weirder yet is that the Bush administration has been talking about him like he is alive. Then you have the always helpful Democrats complaining that the lack of a bin Laden scalp means it's all been a giant waste of time, effort, energy and lives.

FFS people snap out of it, bin Laden is no more He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace!  'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-TERRORIST!!

I don't know why the administration is talking him up, unless the deranged lefties are right and we do have him, W was just waiting for the right moment to whip him out. It is a blemish to not have "Brought him to justice" , but even if the jihadis are pretending he's still runnin' and gunnin', why should we play along? If OBL is not already cursing Allah for his reward of 72 goats, then why haven't we seen or heard from him. It would go a long way for the morale of the faithful and couldn't hurt recruiting, so why do we get fresh Zawahiri and 5 year old bin Laden?

'Cuz he's dead. Probably from natural causes too, which sucks. I would love to be wrong, so we could catch and hang him, but his team needs the juice he could provide far too much to not use him.

Lst_kabul_2 The pic is my buddy Sammy in Kabul on the one year anniversary of 9/11 and the guys are former Northern Alliance troops who told him the 72 Goats story, which many other folks have confirmed is common.
