Counterterrorism Blog on Bin Laden Death Claims

I thought Bin Laden was on dialysis myself. It is interesting that this turns out not to be true:
What is somewhat amusing about these two erroneous claims [of Bin Laden's death] is that they are apparently both based upon the same faulty premise--that Usama Bin Laden suffers from a serious kidney or liver ailment. This is not say that Bin Laden is in perfect shape--indeed, he has his own share of long-term medical problems. However, there is virtually no evidence to suggest that his ongoing condition has been critical enough to fundamentally disrupt or incapacitate him from participating in the planning of military operations, nor the coordination of terrorist financing.
