Bin Laden dead? Doubtful, but if true, didn't Bin Laden even have access to antibiotics? How bad were the sanitary conditions he was living in?

The French newspaper l'Est Republicain printed what it described as a confidential document from the French foreign intelligence service DGSE citing an uncorroborated report from Saudi secret services that bin Laden died of typhoid last month. . . . .

While there is some doubt that this story is correct, if it is, Bin Laden would have been unlikely to have died if he wasn't on the constant run from allied troops. Didn't the guy even have access to antibiotics? Couldn't he even get antibiotics within a couple weeks? Talk about him being isolated. If all this does turn out to be true, it should be marked up as a kill by our side.

Classic typhoid fever is a serious disease. It can be life-threatening, but antibiotics are an effective treatment. The disease lasts several weeks and convalescence takes some time.

The disease is transmitted from human to human via food or drinking water, and it is therefore mainly hygiene and sanitary conditions that determine its spread. It is primarily for this reason that it is no longer so commonly seen in Europe. . . . .
