Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden vowed Monday that he would never be caught alive. His comments were aired on an al-Qaida-affiliated website. "The US and its agents are using the same barbaric tactics once used by former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein," he declared. The al-Qaida leader claimed that the US army's morale was at an all-time low due to the high number of casualties sustained in Iraq and Afghanistan. He alleged that instances of suicide were increasing among American soldiers.
