    Any thoughts?

    It’s a bit tongue in cheek, but u think the Bushies will do anything to stay in power?

    Sunday is my guess. ..slow news day, maximum coverage..?

    Osama Bin Laden is probably already caged-up in Pakistan; He will be handed over Friday afternoon and paraded around the T.V. frequencies for Halloween.

    Bush is such a 4 be 2 like Heir Blair a 4 be 3; They have scammed this one up between them I bet.

    I doubt he’ll be captured at all, as I figure he’s been dead for at least the last year. He hasn’t been seen on tape for nearly two years, and he hasn’t made any statements in a similar timeframe.

    al-Zawahiri has been making all al-Qaeda statements for that period, which gives support to the theory of the seriousness of Bin Laden’s illness which go back all the way to 2001. It could quite possibly have resulted in a recent change of command within al-Qaeda.
    With al-Zawahiri becoming leader, and al-Zarqawi, becoming number two in the chain of command.
    Jamaat al-Tawhid wa’l-Jihad, has appeared to it’s change name to that of al-Qaeda in the past week, with evidence coming from the release of videotape on Tuesday, of a Japanese hostage being threatened with decapitation within unless the Japanese government withdraws it’s 500 troops.

    Not that you’d really know seeing as all the attention is on Margaret Hassan. Who if she was 100% and not 50% Iraqi, would not even get reported.

    Margaret Hassan is female too, which makes the news eds more interested. Your point’s entirely valid. The news orgs have ignored the execution of so many hostages [eg Nepalese].
    I hope Sky aren’t going OTT as, well, you know my views. Less reporting and it may not be as prevalent.
    Who knows? It seems to be a valid question to try to find out who is holding someone, as their chances of survival appear a bit higher if being held by out and out bandit gangsters, not the so-called ‘Al Qaeda’ affiliates, whoever they are.

    It’s not just in Britain that you get this ‘nationalistic’ bias with the reporting of hostage taking. France only runs news of the now 60+ days that their 2 journalists have been held. With the joy in Italy of the release (the ransom demand being paid by the Italians) of the 2 “Simonas”, the media just ignored that the Iraqi (man) seized with them was, in fact, executed.

    Bin Laden may be alive. The fact that it suits a few politicians to keep saying he is, or that every attack is planned by Al Qaeda or one of the Al-Zs when they have no proof, doesn’t mean he’s dead. There’s a bagfull of crazies out there but the politicos can’t very well say “we have no idea who’s behind this” can they? Need the Bogeyman.

    Thing is though, the politicians quit saying he’s alive a long time ago. They don’t know if he is or not <_ <
    As far as the bogeyman issue, you can place the blame on al Qaeda. They fund, aid and train terrorists all over the globe that routinely attack western interests as a matter of ideology. Al Qaeda isn’t a single man control a single group. It’s many groups, working either with or for al Qaeda.

    As far as the Hassan issue, it’s contoversial to say but can the possibility of being staged be ruled out? :unsure:

    Will, UK broadcasters even bother mentioning the fact the body of an asian male( possibly Shosei Koda) was found with gunshot wounds to the head and chest?

    Or the fact two truck drivers from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka were taken hostage and shown on al-Jazeera…

    Or a Polish woman in her 60s who’s married to an Iraqi was also abducted by the Abu Bakr al-Seddiq al-Salafiya Brigades, and demands made that Ploand withdraws it’s troops.

    Hell, i’m surprised none of the networks have jumped on the story of the 7 year old Lebanese kid held hostage. Perfect for GMTV. :rolleyes:

    But then they are not British. Neither are the 100+ Iraqis taken hostage in the last month.

    I don’t get the media. They seem to be ignoring what’s actually hapening and putting a rose tinted view over (scant mention over the execution of 11 Iraqis yesterday), yet if anything but burns they go completely overboard and blow it out of proportion so they can have another dig at the government. The re-deployment of a battalion of the Black Watch being a good example. Saying they are being deployed to the ‘so called Triangle of Death’. Pretty odd, never heard it called that apart from anyone other than news presenter in the last 7 days :rolleyes:

    Maybe not, Sky are reporting that Arab TV will air a video said to be from Osama Bin Laden. although you are right in saying that he will be on T.V frequencies on friday…

    Let’s wait and see what he has to say.

    Well, I doubht it.

    One or two people here seem to be left-wing! Sky News is branded as a right-wing news agency. Not my words.

    But it does seem like a terrible left-wing conspiracy that your talking about. Capuring bin laden – won’t happen within the next week anyway.

    ….speaking of catching him,… he just slapped George Bush with his new appearance on video, saying how Bush has deceived Americans since 9/11 and that U.S. security is in hands of Americans. Of course he also threatens with new U.S. attacks.
    This is a huge blow for Bush just before elections and it will be interesting to see how he will turn it to his own benefit in these next few days.
