Poll: Bin Laden will never be caught, most Americans say

Nearly nine years after the September 11 terror attacks, a record number of Americans believe the United States is unlikely to ever capture or kill Osama bin Laden, according to a new national poll.

A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Thursday reveals that only 36 percent think the country is safer from terrorism than it was before the 2001 attacks.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans, however, are not personally worried about becoming a victim of terrorism. And most say they are prepared to deal with an attack if the worst should happen.

    I guess it's not unusual for the "most wanted" to never be found eh?

    Really folks!! are we even looking for him. I am sure if we really wanted to get him we would and could. The president and him are probably good friends.

    Most of US know that if an illegal from Mexico can sneak in with a can of beans, so too can one from "alqueda" with a can of anthrax. If they wanted US dead, we would be dead. Our borderis open, and our water supplies are not guarded at all. How hard could it be to poison them?
