Bin laden wasn't hiding 300m down the street from his moms house in the middle of a European capital, with everyone in the country looking for him.

That's why he's the record holder, obviously. This Belgian waffle had no hope of even a year let alone decade+

The audacity alone of hiding like that and having a willing network to help, is what scares most people.

Bin laden had the benefit of being a terrorists hiding in Pakistan, which the equivalent of hiding a cow in a field of cows at night.

As if entirely scripted, once Yemen plunged into civil war the stage was set for isis to establish a base. and now they've carried out an attack killing 22 in Aden (this won't be receiving much coverage, obviously)

Fighting Intensifies Between CIA-Backed Militias and Pentagon Backed Syrian Rebels
Clashes between militias trained by the CIA and the Pentagon are intensifying as bitter fighting has broken out near Aleppo and the Turkish border. The fighting has intensified over the past two months, as CIA-armed units and Pentagon-armed ones have repeatedly shot at each other as they have maneuvered through contested territory on the northern outskirts of Aleppo, U.S. officials and rebel leaders have confirmed. In mid-February, a CIA-armed militia called Fursan al Haq, or Knights of Righteousness, was run out of the town of Marea, about 20 miles north of Aleppo, by Pentagon-backed Syrian Democratic Forces moving in from Kurdish-controlled areas to the east. "Any faction that attacks us, regardless from where it gets its support, we will fight it," said Maj. Fares Bayoush, a leader of Fursan al Haq.
