Michael Ledeen reports that credible accounts from inside Iran say Osama bin Laden died there three weeks ago:
...according to Iranians I trust, Osama bin Laden finally departed this world in mid—December. The al Qaeda leader died of kidney failure and was buried in Iran, where he had spent most of his time since the destruction of al Qaeda in Afghanistan. The Iranians who reported this note that this year's message in conjunction with the Muslim Haj came from his number two, Ayman al—Zawahiri, for the first time.
The New York Post, reports he's been "quiet as a corpse".
If true, it wouldn't be a bad start to the new year.
