New Business Model 

Well, he's still dead or alive:
Al-Jazeera on Thursday aired an audiotape purportedly from Osama bin Laden, who says al-Qaida is making preparations for attacks in the United States but offering a truce "with fair conditions" . . . .

U.S. counterterror officials said Thursday they have seen no specific or credible intelligence to indicate an upcoming al-Qaida attack on the country.

The United States will not let up in the war on terror despite the threats on the tape, said White House press secretary Scott McClellan. "We do not negotiate with terrorists," McClellan said. "We put them out of business."
Our formerly-BARBARic colleague John at Blogenlust notes that OBL must be awfully fond of his arch-nemesis GWB, since he has a funny tendency to pop out of his mole-hole whenever the President's numbers are in need of a serious goosing.

At least we think that's what he's noting.
