And if it’s bin Laden we’re concerned about, Fox News reported that he died in Dec. 2001:
Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader.
“The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead,” the source said.
Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his grave was made as per his Wahabi belief.Rest of story
In a Nov. 2008 CBS interview Obama said: I think capturing or killing bin Laden is a critical aspect of stamping out al Qaeda. He is not just a symbol, he’s also the operational leader of an organization that is planning attacks against US targets.

Cheney said bin Laden was not involved in 911:
In this news clip, Cheney says his guess is that bin Laden is operating in an area that is very difficult to get to and that he’s not an effective leader at this stage because he cannot engage with his organization without coming out of whatever hole he’s hiding in.
According to Donald Rumsfield that ‘hole’ is equipped with computers and telephone systems – ‘a very sophisticated operation’.
In a press conference six months post 911, Bush was asked about bin Laden. Deep in my heart I know the man’s on the run if he’s alive at all.
