Serrano - This guy reminds me of that Iraqi Information Minister.

You're thinking of Bagdad Bob, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf. He was the fellow insisting that Saddam was winning even when M1A1 Abrams battle tanks were rolling into Bagdad.

Maybe he's joined the Taliban.

The question is, would the Taliban have more or less morale if OBL had been captured rather than martyred?

I think a trial would have been humilating, whereas summary execution has become an inspiration.

You and al Queda use the word 'execution'.

We say he should've learned what the words 'Free a**hole!' in English mean.

That's our story and we're stickin' to it.

Al-Quaida never said he was executed. His 12 year old daughter was actually there. And she said he was executed.

You don't aim for the head when you are trying to capture someone. I can hear those SEALS in the helicopters now: "Remember boys, this is a kill or, uh, capture mission!" (laughter). The word capture was just a bone thrown in there for the gullible.
