The Bin Laden Question

Well, the Intelligence community is looking for the answer. And no, no, it's not the question of where he is hiding. We all know he is hiding in wazirstan, and that he is alive and well, so well he married last year Hala el shobohsky from the saudi shobokshy family, so that question is no longer valid. The real question of the hour in the intelligence community, it seems, is that concerning OBL's new black beard.

Questions over the elusive Saudi extremist's beard cropped up at a
Congressional hearing Monday featuring top US security experts,
including Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell.

"First, is this his beard?" Republican Senator Norm Coleman asked the spy chief. "Do we expect that — is it a signal?"

McConnell swiftly rejected any possibility that the hair in his chin was intended to send any signal to his Al-Qaeda members.

"So far, we do not think there's been a signal. He's done this
periodically, as has (Ayman al-) Zawahiri (the group's
second-in-command), and there has not been a correlation necessarily
between one of these tapes or a public statement and a particular
event," McConnell said.

But he wondered whether Bin Laden's beard was genuine.

"The big question in the community this morning, 'Is that beard real,'
because as you know, just a few years ago, the last time he appeared,
it was very different," he said.

"So we don't know if it's dyed and trimmed or real, but that's one of the things we're looking at. But no specific message."


I really can't improve on that with a joke. No comment is the best policy here.

    Let’s hope he didn’t get his beard dyed in Iran. They’re arresting barbers for less than that down there these days …

    I think, according of what I have read, that he had to cut his beard in a musin retreat in Asia (Malaysia ?) because the habit there for muslins is not to wear beard ; in reallity, it’s a fake beard

    I read somewhere that dyeing your beard is haram under normal circumstances, but – according to jurists from some of the schools – halal if you’re at war. The writer says that it’s a statement “I’m at war”.

    Personally, I think he’s trying to look more like the pussy we all know him to be.

    The idiot talking heads make as big a deal when Hillary changes her hairstyle, what twits.

    A complete and utter waste of time, but I guess it passes time for those involved.
