French Reporting OBL Is Dead. Can You Say October Surprise?

Reported by Marie Therese - September 23, 2006 -

FOX News just announced that the the French Secret Service is reporting vis a tip from the Saudis that arch-terrorist Osama bin Laden died of typhoid on August 26th. American intelligence services are neither confirming nor denying the story. Ho-hum. Liberals have been speculating for months that the "October Surprise" would be the announcement that OBL had either been captured or killed. Despite Bush's statement that he doesn't think much about the mastermind of 9-11, the GOP knows that it stings every time a Democrat makes the charge that bin Laden is still alive. Wonder if the French decided to blow the whistle just a little bit early and take the wind out of Rove's sails? As for Mr. Al Qaeda, if he is dead, good riddance!
