Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive or Dead many years ago?

As so often in connection to events like this - in this case the death or supposed death of Osama bin Laden (Usama bin Laden) - a lot of theories around what is true or not starts to circulate.

According to some commentators, Osama bin Laden died already in the attacks towards the Tora Bora caves in december 2001.
Why this wasn't announced is said to be related to the overall geopolitical decisions within the USA and President Bush's administration and its wish to have a 'diabolical' opponent in order to justify the military spendings and decisions of interventions in different parts of the world.
This whether or not these interventions are aimed at trying to capture Osama bin Laden, defeating terrorism, defending democracy or just spreading the power of USA in the world, taking advantage of different natural resources or any other riches these countries can offer.

On this level the USA is not acting differently compared to other major powers or even small countries in the world, it's just that the impact is often greater as the USA - up til this point - has been and is the biggest and most powerful nation in the world.

American USSR is a site that claim things about the hunt for Osama bin Laden that are contrary to the US Government information and they offer different kinds of 'proofs' for their theories.
Their aim is to 'reveal' the lies and treasons presented to the people of the USA by the US Governments through history. As it says on their site:
"An Extensive Archive of America's Hundreds of Lies, Treacheries, Wars, False Operations, Torture, and Murders".

On the other hand one must ask oneself if George W. Bush really would have omitted telling the world of the death of Osama bin Laden, as it, in this case, occured during a moment during the Bush administration when the USA still had a lot of compasion and understanding for its actions all around the world.
Therefore I question this theory as well.
President Bush could well have argued for the continuation of his 'War Against Terrorism' in the same way as President Barack Obama does now.

One thing one can say is that the burial of Osama bin Laden at sea, offers no real possibility to identify him.

On the other hand, Osama bin Laden - as has been stated by many others - is more important as a symbol for both the USA and the loosely knit 'terrorist organization' Al Qaida/Al-Queda.
Those men and women being convinced that they are fighting against 'the Great Enemy'/'The Great Satan' - the United States (and its allies) - will of course continue, under different kinds of leaderships all over the world.

The overall symbol for Al-Qaida, is at this moment the 'second man' after bin Laden - maybe the brain behind all that has been done in the name of Al-Quaida - namely Ayman al-Zawahiri.
