    According to this article, OBL's 2004 video appearance has influenced the election results and it could do the same thing if a video would be released anytime between now and November 4.

    If Osama Bin Laden does release a video, and if you think that video could influence the results, which candidate would benefit from it more?

    I've cut the article's introduction but you can read the full article here.

    I don't know, last I remember it didn't seem like anybody cared OBL was even alive.

    I think you're right, judging from the overwhelming response this thread has received. :lol:

    Yeah, 7 years is a long time, the 9/11 attacks are starting to move to the back of peoples collective memories, especially since the world has this financial crisis to worry about right now. That's one of the main reasons why even though McCain scores higher on national security issues, Obama's ahead in the polls. Americans frankly don't care about national security so much right now since the news is practically shoving wall street down our throats 24/7.
