OBL Dead from Typhoid? So Say the French.

Update: Al-Qaeda's reaction to the French small press release of the news that OBL might finally be dead, is to start releasing videos of torture victims, allegedly US soldiers which AQ allegedly tortured to death. Notice all of the allegations--no proven facts as of yet. FOXnews has more details and a video report.

For those of you who don't read/understand French (the headline links to the original article in French), we offer you the English interpretation by The Jerusalem Post.

According to the French regional newspaper, l'Est Republicain, Al-Qaeda (former) leader, Osama bin Laden contracted typhoid in Pakistan on or about August 23, 2006 and later died from it. The exact date of death is not known, but the Saudi Security service first heard of OBL's alleged death on or about September 4, 2006 (see screen shot of Al-Jazeera video below).

Saudi Security has requested the location of the burial site but have not yet announced having it found it yet.

In Pakistan, a senior official of that country's top spy agency, the ISI or Directorate of Inter-Service Intelligence, said he had no information to confirm bin Laden's whereabouts or that he might be dead. The official said he believed the report could be fabricated. The official was not authorized to speak publicly on the topic and spoke on condition of anonymity.
