Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive?
David Ray Griffin
Interlink Books, 2009 - 102 pages


The US's political discourse and foreign policy in recent years has been based on the assumption that Osama bin Laden is still alive. George W. Bush promised as president that he would get Osama bin Laden "dead or alive" and has been widely criticized for failing to do so. The US's present military escalation in Afghanistan is said to be necessary to "get Osama bin Laden." The news media regularly announce the appearance of new "messages from bin Laden." But what if he died in December 2001-the last time a message was intercepted? In this book, David Ray Griffin examines evidence for the claim-made by everyone from former CIA agent Robert Baer to Oliver North-that bin Laden is surely no longer with us. His meticulous analysis supports above all one simple and urgent conclusion: if Osama bin Laden is dead, the US should not be using its troops and treasure to hunt him down.
