Will Osama bin Laden ever be caught alive?

CNN, quoting an aide to the Iraqi prime minister, is reporting that the Iraqi insurgent leader Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi has died in US bombing. Zarqawi, who carried a $25 million bounty on his head and was the most wanted man in Iraq, was a long time ally of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. With rumours of a major operation in Pakistan during the last few days, will Osama bin Laden ever be caught alive or, like Veerappan, will he only be brought in dead and carry all his secrets to the grave? On second thoughts, is Osama alive at all?
