From Goldblog reader Marc Robbins:
What does it mean, if true, that Bin Ladin had been living in this compound since 2005? Clearly, he didn't -- and couldn't -- get out much. He was mostly cut off from the outside world. Sounds like he was retired. Maybe the Shaykh of al Qaeda Emeritus. And it also sounds like those putting him up weren't too concerned about his safety. The world's most hunted man sleeping in the same bed for six years? Even if exaggerated, compare that to the stories of Saddam never sleeping in the same bed two nights in a row. And not too many guards around either.
This sounds more like Aung Suu Kyi under house arrest. An incredibly evil Aung Suu Kyi, of course.
You start to wonder if all his computer hardware will prove is that the guy whiled away the time playing Angry Birds.
