Yes, irrelevant. Want to kill him? Go ahead; few deserve such punishment more than he. However, he is irrelevant. If dead, he is irrelevant. If alive, not only is he irrelevant, but also powerless and, more to the point, a coward. Hiding behind al Jazeera, making vague claims of "revenge" and threats of more violence? I'd be laughing at his lame ass if he wasn't so evil. Al Qaida continues to exist, much diminished. I have little doubt that international police efforts will put them out of business, much as the Red Army Faction, and others, were put out of business. A continually diminishing threat exists; it will eventually go away. In the meantime, if he is alive, bin Laden is irrelevant, and a coward. I am saddened that anyone would follow a man who hasn't the courage of his convictions. Here is a question, Mr. Irrelevant Man: If you and your followers are so eager to die, fighting the "infidel", why are you hiding? Coward. You are irrelevant.
