"I don't think Bin Laden is hiding in some cave in Pakistan or Afghanistan ... have you ever known a multimillionaire to hide in a cave?" â€“ Michael Moore, April 30, 2008
"Osama bin Laden is a multi-millionaire â€“ and if there's one thing I've learned about the rich it's that they don't live in caves for 9 years. Bin Laden is either dead or hiding out in a place where his money protects him." â€“ Michael Moore, October 7, 2010
