So what did Osama do exactly?

The recent Al Qaeda threats to Indian brought back a thought that I had long forgotten.

Why is the world looking for Osama Bin Laden?

Well, the world isn't actually. It's mostly America and the ease with which he and his "colleagues" are shooting videos, they aren't doing a terribly good job of looking either. Unless, we talk about looking the other way!

Digging up some information on the web, it seems that the US isn't looking for Bin Laden in connection with 9/11 at all! Surprising, you would say?

Here is the REAL reason why they are looking for him:

"Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people."

So they want him for attacks which killed 200 people but not the one which killed just under 3,000 people? Baffling.

Here's the thing, in nearly 6 years since 9/11 we have not had one shred of evidence which linked Bin Laden or Al Qaeda to the attacks. Al Qaeda hasn't owned up to the attacks. It is simply been the US government that has been claiming Bin Laden's involvement, without proof.

I am not saying Bin Laden is a saint but this certainly is food for thought.
