The last video of Al-Qaeda founder, Osama Bin Laden, alive features him with a trimmed, dyed beard.  Bin Laden, who hadn’t been seen in three years prior to the video’s release, had previously been identified over past decade with his trademark unruly, gray beard.  Although the Muslim religion does not require one to grow a beard, members of the Taleban Movement considered it essential to their beliefs; however, dyeing their facial is certainly uncommon.  Muslim Academics and Leaders have weighed in on whether it was an war-like ritual or a mere act of publicity.  What do you think? Was this terrorist leader just going through a mid-life crisis?
