Where is Osama

On Sept 10, in 2002 and 2003, Osama bin Laden came up with his lecture to the world and surprisingly this year there was no message. This has led B. Raman to wonder

The absence of an anniversary homage to the terrorists of the 9/11 operation by Osama is interpreted by some as an indicator that either he is already in the custody of the US or Pakistan and will be produced before the world just before the polling day in the US or that he is dead or that his health has deteriorated aggravating the speech disability reportedly suffered by him due to the sharpnel injury. There is, however, no evidence to corroborate any of these interpretations. He must be presumed to be alive and free till there is evidence to the contrary.[Osama
