(Newser) – Omar bin Laden doesn't know where his infamous father is, but "he's still alive," he tells the Telegraph. This doesn't appear to be more than a hunch, however: "If that sort of person dies, you could never make it a secret. The world changes if he dies." He adds that he loves and misses Osama and quotes his dad as saying that the only worthwhile American exports are weapons like Stinger missiles.

Omar has far different views: He's partial to Jim Carrey movies and harbors an odd wish: "I want to go to America and I would love to meet Drew Barrymore. I am single now and she is the most beautiful woman in Hollywood." Doesn't seem likely the CIA will be rushing to interview him about his hunch about dad.
