Who realy needs him?

"Following technical analysis of the Osama bin Laden tape aired today, the CIA assesses that it was the voice of Osama bin Laden" said some anonymous voice from that department. The official provided no details about how the Central Intelligence Agency concluded that the voice was actually that of Bin Laden. It doesn't really matter if it was "him" or not.
How come that the CIA concluded, and the US government subscribed to this statement in such a short period of time?
It dawns on me that BOTH, the US government AND the extremist muslims need to keep the phantom of Ossama alive. What do they have in common? Both of them advocate perpetual warfare, a lofty fight for freedom on issues that are striking in their resemblance. Ossama for the one group "is" the devil, for the others he is the focal point to "fight" the devil (infidel).
If we keep this trend and continue to be stuck in present fixed parameters of this obnoxious view of "evil" , both in the west and in the east, I can guaranty you that Ossama will stay alive for at least a couple more generations to come, despite his kidney problems...

Yes, Bush needs Osama the way Osama needs Bush. Ironically, their families have enjoyed many meals and investments together over the years.

A good point. Osama is like the boogeyman. If you don't do want big daddy Georgie wants, Osama is going to get you. Personally, I think they should be cell mates somewhere.
