    Is he a terrorist, or is he a suspected terrorist. We all know Bin Laden is a terrorist. What has this man done other than has ties to Al-Qaeda an may be involved in “possible threats” to the US. In this day, every muslim is a possible threat to the US, according to Bush and his neocons.

    The Commissioner of Police is right. Dont worry, be happy, relax and have a rum and coconut water.
