Re: bin Laden Death Report Questioned
Steve notes at the end of bin Laden Death Report Questioned that UbL is unlikely to go without medical treatment. He cites his wealth and stature.
Certainly UbL's place at the forefront of the mujahideen would make him a priority candidate for medical treatment. Likewise the number of physicians - such as Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri - who are likely to be close to him would increase his likelihood of receiving medical care.
On the other hand - his wealth has been over stated for years and is now part of his lore and mythology more than reality.
Is he dead? Unlikely.
