Is Osama still relevant?

Read Anderson Cooper's blog on CNN where he was asking if Osama Bin Laden is still relevant in the news today. He's been on the run for so long and with al qaeda only a shell of it's former capabilities, perhaps it's about time he's slowly forgotten.

Nowadays, I think Osama only serves as a stark reminder of the failings of the US government, with Bush and Rumsfeld in particular. Catching Bin Laden used to be the number one priority, but since then it's been a sequence of missteps which just keeps compounding one after another. Now it turns out Iran may be WAY more dangerous than Saddam ever was. Am I looking forward to Osama finally getting captured. Not really. However I'm looking forward to the presidential elections.
