"My Pakistani security intelligence sources told me five years ago that Osama bin Laden was hiding in an urban area in Pakistan. If I, a humble journalist, had a good idea where OBL was, why did it take CIA so long to find one elderly man who had brazenly set out to defeat the mighty American Imperium? The whole Osama bin Laden saga keeps getting more and more bizarre and incredible. I am reminded of the ending of the film the Wizard of Oz, wherein the fearsome wizard is revealed as a frightened old man with fake scenery and a terrifying noise box." (05/10/11)
