November 13, 2001 - Osama bin Laden, in an interview with the Pakistani newspaper Dawn, is denying reports he had been hospitalized in Dubai for kidney treatment. Here is an excerpt of the interview:
HM: A French newspaper has claimed that you had kidney problem and had secretly gone to Dubai for treatment last year. Is that correct ?

OSB: My kidneys are all right. I did not go to Dubai last year.

November 2, 2001 - Everyone except the physician, who will not comment, is denying that Osama bin Laden received treatment for kidney disease at the American Hospital in Dubai this last July. Story from Financial Times/The Scotsman.

November 1, 2001 - Officials at the American Hospital in Dubai are denying French newspaper reports that Osama bin Laden was treated there for a kidney problem in July. Here is a summary from a UK television station web site.

For those of you that are fluent in French, here is the article from Le Figaro.

October 6, 2001 - This story from the National Post (Canada) reports that secret negotiations for Osama bin Laden's surrender include providing a dialysis machine to treat his kidney disease (see last paragraph in linked story).

September 18, 2001 - Here are reports from the past two years that suggest that Osama bin Laden is suffering from kidney failure, is undergoing dialysis treatments, and is seeking a kidney transplant:

  • July 2, 2001 - The South Asia Analysis Group reports that "Bin Laden, who suffers from renal deficiency, has been periodically undergoing dialysis in a Peshawar (Pakistan) military hospital with the knowledge and approval of the Inter-Services Intelligence, (ISI) if not of Gen. Pervez Musharraf himself."

  • April 10, 2001 - This article from the "whistleblower" Australian magazine Crikey states that, "Due to its racist and inept ways, the US is convinced hepatitic old Usuma bin Laden personally directs ALL international terrorism from his cave near Kandahar, despite the fact he is on dialysis and the Taliban have taken all his satellite communications equipment away."

  • July 31, 2000 - "Bin Laden fears for life as Taliban withdraw welcome" - This article from the Sydney Morning Herald mentions that he is urgently seeking a kidney transplant.

  • March 16, 2000 - Bin Laden was reported to be dying of kidney failure.

Seems to me that he would be able to get any number of kidneys from his suicidal band of murderous followers. I can't imagine that they would die for this pig but would not give him a kidney.

I was hurt by the statement that someone would want to use dialysis to kill bin Laden. I don't believe we as doctors and nurses have the right to kill anyone, and I mean anyone. That is not our right and it is a shameful remark to make.

Just listened to CNN. Over 27 organizations that supply funding to terrorist groups have been "strangled"! That should go a long way in cutting off money and supplies to Osama. I quite frankly don't care what happens to him. As my mother always said "you made your bed, now lie in it!"

I don't believe Osama Bin Laden needs a kidney, with all his wealth he can buy one or just plain kill for it. It's just propaganda I don't believe it, not a bit

He could be a zillionaire and it wouldn't help him-- the local hospitals have had their transplant programs curtailed because the government wouldn't pay them. The transplant doctors left to get jobs in places where they could earn a living. Dialysis for the poor is being stopped in many clinics. I think it's karmic justice that his life now depends on Western medicine.

Gee, Women in the USA complain about some of the men here. Some of the men in the middle east treat women like dirt! On news this a.m. saw a group of Taliban's "enforcers" beating a woman with a stick because her veil slipped and partially exposed her face!
My guess would be that women there definately do not get dialysis if they need it!
Justice would be going there, removing the women to countries where they could learn to read and write, and have freedom! Let the Taliban there to cook and clean for themselves.

One of the techs said something like that to me the other morning, and I said, "You think you could do that, but I bet you wouldn't be able to if given the chance, even if the guys with the machine guns weren't watching your every move."

Fantasies of revenge are a useful part of grieving, but to move on and learn something from all this tragedy, think awhile about that particular patient you sometimes think you would like to kill.
You know the one I mean, that legend of noncompliance who greets you each morning with sarcasm and verbal abuse, the one you wanted to stick in the eyeball when he tipped over the catheter tray? He doesn't seem quite so bad when compared to having to dialyze Bin Laden, now does he? And you know you would do it with the same professional skill and concern that you did any other patient, no matter how much it tore you up. Or not: it's your choice and your karma.

Any one care to speculate what type of filter supposedly was used in his machine?

I agree that if he needed a kidney, he would willingly find donors from his supporters.

And just tactically, the best way to stay hidden is for people to think you are weakened or even possibly dead. The news of
his renal insufficiency may be greatly
exaggerated - probably by the Taliban themselves.
