he had pleaded with Special Forces officers to block
the trails to Pakistan. 'The Americans would not listen, even when I told them that one word with me was worth more than $1

absolutely safe." This is crazy. If they had been willing to take casualties to capture Osama then, perhaps they'd have to take
fewer casualties now.'" (John F. Burns, "10 Month Afghan Mystery: Is bin Laden Dead or Alive",

Mercedes-Benz automobile in which British Princess Diana was killed in a Paris car crash, 31Aug97.
The Princess was not wearing her seat belt. Even though it was a head-on collision,
and her bodyguard was sitting in the front, whereas she was sitting in the rear, he survived because
he was wearing his seat belt.|
