Bin Laden Prediction

Saturday, February 28th, 2004 · 1 Comment

I’ve been meaning to post my prediction here for the past few months, so given the headlines this morning, now seems as good a time as any. I just wish I had beat these headlines, and, in fact, was just talking about this with Jen last night when the same topic came up on Real Time with Bill Maher, who, with Ian McKellen, also believes this theory.

I predict that Osama bin Laden will suddenly be “captured” just prior to this November’s elections.

Is it really that crazy a prospect? Remember what Saddam’s capture did for Bush, his ratings, and the media spotlight?

Not that Iran is all that trustworthy, but what would they have to gain by making a claim that bin Laden was captured more than a year ago?

Reuters via New York Times: “The U.S. Department of Defense denied reports by Iran’s official IRNA news agency on Saturday that al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has been captured.”
