I'm guessing that he was still CIA while running the imaginary Al Qaeda organization, and probably died due to his illness. If he was still playing with his friends today, he would have done a few videotapes by now. He looked ill when we last saw him. So his old friends at US intelligence have made him immortal by keeping him alive figuritively speaking.

They've been doing the same thing with Zarqawi in Iraq. Except, the news of his death was going against their goals in Iraq, so they put together that embarrassingly bad performance with an actor pretending to be Zarqawi and released it to the media. If Zarqawi was real and that black and white photo was of the real Zarqawi, he didn't look anything like the video.

He's gotten camera shy.

They're not going to do squat about the Valerie Plame case. They're more concerned about who leaked the info about the domestic wire taps. Getting rid of all of the whistle blowers in the government and military seems to be their new goal.

I don't know about the syrian intelligence you are referring to. Was this pre-first gulf war?
