"Osama bin Laden has been many things to many people: evildoer, terrorist, holy man, and messenger of Allah. Now, in his death, we can add two more labels: fraud and failure. He is a fraud because, for all his invective against the decadent West, he lived in a supersized mansion. And for all his hateful sermons against the 'infidels,' the Al Qaeda network he helped lead for nearly two decades has killed far more Muslims than non-Muslims. ... And he’s a failure, because even before his death, Muslims around the world were losing confidence in him and turning away from his vision of an Islamic caliphate." (05/05/11)
