Iranian state radio quoted its reporter as saying the arrest happened a long time ago. "Osama bin Laden has been arrested a long time ago, but Bush is intending to use it for propaganda maneuvering in the presidential election," he said.
Both American and Pakaistani officials deny the allegation. We'll just have to wait and see.
I'm not sure even Osama can help Bush at this point. Dubya did too good of a job of distracting a lot of people away from OBL with Iraq and now many are focused on the current state of the economy. Yes, he will undoubtedly show an uptick in the polls, but it should just be another speedbump to the third ring of hell.
