More reports of Osama bin Laden's death

The news has been full of reports that the founder of Al Qaeda has either been wounded in battle, or has died from earthquake related matters. For example, he may have had difficulty getting the regular dialysis treatments he requires following the quake. The most recent reports have him dead for months of an undisclosed illness. From Halifax Live:
The Pakistani newspaper 'Ausaf' which is based in the city of Multan in the Punjab Province is reporting that Osama bin Laden died last June in a village near Kandahar in Afghanistan.

According to the newspaper report, Bin Laden was campaigning at Bamiyan, fell very ill, returned to Kandahar where he died and was buried in the Shada graveyard in the shadow of a mountain.
By far the most unusual reports involve "remote viewers" in India, using their skills at 'seeing at a distance', getting visions of Osama and/or Al-Qaeda being dead or damaged. (Apparently these remote views aren't as clear as the remote views we get from Predators and the like.) I can't decide whether the Islamic Fundamentalist Jihadis PR branch would handle Osama's death by covering it up, or by bumping him up to Super Martyr status.

Perhaps he will be advertised as the long-awaited Mahdi., as the ever-weird World Net Daily worries? One thing is certain: Osama will die sooner or later. The real uncertainty is: will he be more powerfully dangerous dead than he has been in life?
Update: Josy Joseph, DNA India: Osama Bin Laden is in Pakistan, down but not out.
