A team of UCLA geographers have found Osama bin Laden.

They’ve published an article in the MIT International Review scientifically narrowing his locations to one of three houses in North West Pakistan!

Amazingly, this was not the journal’s cover story.

    Um, today isn’t April 1st and Mardi Gras is next week, so that leaves me searching the calendar for whatever foolishness day today might be.

  2. It is a surprisingly interesting little read. I wish I were close enough to IC folks to know how close this mimics approaches used inside the USG to find him.

    …don’t suppose there is a branch of Special Forces Geologists is there?.

    I think that geologists are the most likely to find him but not because they’ve analyzed satellite photos.

    That’s complete BS. I saw him at Zel’s Beef Sandwiches just today. Dude needs a shave, though.
