Straw in the wind - OBL
According to somebody who had dinner with Antonio Martino last week, the Italian defence minister is sure that Bin Laden will be in custody by September. This is more optimistic than the State Department which is betting on 'before Christmas'.
There is also a seriously well sourced story that OBL has been in Iran in the last year and is being supported by elements in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard - this from a couple of Iranian defectors. The defectors are regarded as "highly reliable" by the US and have in the past been responsible, through their information for "saving American lives".
