    DJ Bin Laden Cornered Near Pakistan-Afghan Border - Report

    NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--U.S. and U.K. special forces have cornered
    al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in a mountainous area of western
    Pakistan near the Afghan border, a U.K. tabloid newspaper reported
    Sunday, citing an unnamed U.S. intelligence source.
    Several print media outlets reported the development, citing the
    Sunday Express newspaper. The story wasn't immediately available on
    the tabloid's Web site.
    According to the Sunday Express, bin Laden and about 50 of his
    followers were "boxed in" in an area of 16 kilometers square at an
    altitude of some 3,000 meters north of the city of Quetta, published
    reports said.
    The zone is under surveillance by a U.S. spy satellite, and U.S.
    forces are confident bin Laden can't escape, reports cited Sunday
    Express as saying.

    Actually, identifiable body parts would be the most preferable.
  6. Dow Jones was an actor. I believe he played the father on "Leave it to Beaver" . Later he went on to found the Dow Jones Newswire.
  7. it must be pretty hard to catch a 6'7'' formerly CIA-employed, donkey riding Arab attached to a dialysis machine....I see at least 40 of those a day.......lights, camera, action.

  9. You know I have been searching new sites for references to Osama and can find none with today's date. By the way, I was looking at the guys picture and realized that without the beard, he looks just like a guy I went to high school with. Incredible.
