Has bin Laden been dead for a month? Was the White House saving that information for October to give Republicans a boost in the mid-term elections?

Nobody knows. But if he really did die of typhoid, I'm not sure that's good for electoral prospects. Think about it: we send troops to fight a war, spend five years fighting, never find him, and he dies from a common third-world disease. It's pretty hard to spin that as a victory. Not that they won't try if all this speculation turns out to be true.
