I hadn't hear about the earlier sitings. Here's the link if interested: http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=928 Bin Laden was actually spotted in the flesh just a few days ago - according to DEBKAfiles counter terror sources. Between October 17 and October 19, an Indian air force reconnaissance plane picked him up in the Tibet-Laddakh region close to the North-Eastern corner of Pakistan bordering India and China. Additional surveillance aircraft were called in and identified the al Qaeda leader on the move with a 10-vehicle convoy of black Japanese minivans. So now Bin Laden is doing commercial spots for Toyota? Makes me wonder how he could be sited and one of them 500 lb bombs not called in within minutes?
