OSAMA BIN LADEN'S LETTER TO PRESIDENT BUSH:
After hearing numerous times that, "We don't know if Osama Bin Laden is
still alive," Osama himself decided to send a letter in his own handwriting
to US President George Bush, just to let him know he was still in the game.
Bush opened the letter, which contain a single line of a coded message:
Bush was baffled, so he forwarded it to Condi Rice. Condi and her aides had
no idea either, so they sent it to the FBI. No one could solve it at the
FBI, so it went to the CIA, then finally to the NSA.
With no clue as to the meaning of Osama's letter, the Bush Administration
eventually asked Britain's MI-6 for help.
Within a minute, MI-6 cabled the White House with this reply:
> "Tell the President he's holding the message upside down".
