It could just be a coincidence that no one has seen or heard from Fidel Castro or Osama bin Laden during the same period of time. Or it could be the two are hanging out together on the beach courtesy of some Bush/Oil/Halliburton conspiracy.
A top Taliban commander said Al-Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden is alive and well, according to US-based analysts monitoring extremist publications.
“All praise be to Allah, he is extremely healthy and active,” the commander Mansour Dadullah said in a video interview, according to a transcript of the video’s English subtitled translation, released Tuesday by the analyst IntelCenter.
Dadullah, whose brother Mullah Dadullah was also a top commander in the Afghanistan-based militants and was killed this year, said he had been contacted by Bin Laden, the man blamed for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.
“I received a message from him in which he advised me ‘I must follow Mullah Dadullah and continue the same activities so that the mujahedeen (Islamic fighters) may not weaken,” he said, according to the transcript.
The video is dated June 15, 2007, IntelCenter said.
Maybe the two have gotten to spend some alone time on the beach, sharing a mutual hatred of America and drinking Mai Tais under the sun. They both always seem to have a tan, and have shared interests. Throw a pare of sun glasses and they do kinda look alike. Come to think of it they have never been seen in public at the same time and UBL is very elusive. Anyway this theory makes more sense than Rosie saying that steel has never been melted by fire, or Charlie Sheen being a demolitions expert.
