Heard any good conspiracy theories lately?

I heard this one the other day:

The reason why Osama bin Laden hasn't been caught yet is that we've cut a deal to not capture him in exchange for no more bombings/terror attacks here in the US. Makes you wonder, but I doubt it myself.

Anyone have a good one you've heard lately or an old favorite?

Not a bad theory. Question is.....Would that be a reasonable deal to make to maintain the peace?

Tough question to answer.

The reason why we have so many conspiracy theories, is to keep us from discovering the real conspiracy.

I suppose a current one is that the Bruce Ivins wasn't responsible for the anthrax mailings, just a scapegoat and now the government can close a case of "domestic terrorism."

With satellite pictures

Zillo provides satellites pictures

Wonder if the military grade satellite cameras provide greater clarity? If the military satellite cameras do - then I suggest the (military) has already seen Osama.

I've heard numerous accounts from ex-CIA people that they had the chance to capture / kill OBL up to 10 times during the Clinton days, but just ignored it..I suppose he wasn't wanted as badly as he is now?
I still find it hard to believe that we "can't find him" though, I mean, come on...
Something is up.

That's not a conspiracy, it's a fact. You don't believe it? Just look at your tax bill.
In case you don't have tax bill, I could -temporarily- help you out with mine ....
