Bin Laden dead? Maybe not

Intelligence sources in Saudi Arabia, along with French counter-intelligence claim to have obtained information that Osama bin Laden died of typhoid in August.

But former U.S. counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke, who now is an ABC News consultant, said he doesn't believe the report of bin Laden's death.

"Unless we hear from other sources," he said, "unless we hear chatter among the al Qaeda people themselves — and, frankly, in the end, unless we see the body — we should not be jumping to the conclusion that he's dead."

If it's true, good riddance to this menace to the world. Until the body is produced though, I remain skeptical.
