Drudge links this blurb from Reuters:

‘Israel tried to kill bin Laden in 1996: paper”

According to the Israeli daily Yedioth Aharonoth: [say that fast ten times]

“Israel's Mossad spy service and a foreign counterpart enlisted a confidante of Osama bin Laden to kill the al Qaeda leader in 1996 but the plan fell apart over a political dispute, a newspaper said on Thursday”…

A woman described as “close” to bin Laden “was meant to kill bin Laden, but the mission was aborted as a result of a breakdown of ties between Israel and her country linked to Israeli-Palestinian tensions.”

That those “tensions” have cost the US dear is well known. If this is true, the cost may prove to be higher than ever imagined…
