Technically we'll find him, but he won't be alive anymore. I think we'll eventually find his dead body in some cave in Afghanistan.

We might be able to if we actually put some effort into doing so. But as I see it the us regards Osama as just another stick in the sand

Differs on what you mean by 'find'.

1.) Knowing his location: NATO has found his location several times (most before 9/11, after that there was only one that I know of). He got away each time due to failures on the operatives parts (except the one after 9/11 with delta force, that one he was helped out of the area by warlords).

2.) Having him in detainment: I agree with the general statement that we won't find him until after he's dead, unless the USA has some fun in Pakistan.

I remember back just after 9/11 people were placing bets on when we would find him. Some said 2 weeks, some said by January....

I think it will be after he is dead, like Hitler. They might find his body, but I don't think he will let us catch him alive. Especially after how we handled Saddam.

Side: yes

Those that say no are quitters! We will find him dead or alive.

why can't we? because there are quitters! Why can we? because there are people with self- confidence.

In order to find a criminal, send a criminal or at least someone who used to be or someone who understands their twisted minds. WE WILL FIND THAT FUGITIVE!

Actually those that say no are using some logic. Lets get it straight-Bin Laden is very good at hiding. Conventional means of seeking targets have failed us 99% of the time. Now, in the 1% time they work, we've never been able to effectively follow up, because "collateral damage" is completely unacceptable to most people. So at the moment, its pretty unlikely we'll find him.

Hi.

Side: yes

Hi, I first joined around 600 days ago stayed for a week remained inactive for 574 days.

Side: yes

We will find him. We will not forget the day that the towers fell. We will not rest until he is found- dead or alive. Even if we withdraw our troops, we can still launch covert operations to find him.

"The reader may surmise that a political opposition to Big Brother— namely, Goldstein— was psychologically necessary in order to provide an internal enemy posing a threat to the rule of the Party; the constantly reiterated ritual of the Two Minutes Hate help ensure that popular support for and devotion towards Big Brother is continuous."

In other words, you think that 9/11 was a conspiracy conducted by the US government?

Perhaps the US does need a common enemy to unite against, but that doesn't mean we "invented" the whole thing about Osama Bin Laden. Any such accusation is patently absurd. If sectarian radicals didn't attack the twin towers, then why would they take credit for the attack?

Well, considering how Obama absolutely loves to give terrorists rights, I would have to answer no.

No he's some were at the bottom of the ocean so it would be extremely unlikely to find him.
