Re: [jyotish-vidya] Osama
Did you read the following...
Note: In a 1998 interview, Bin Laden gave his birth date as March 10, 1957. Source: >Wikipedia<
I included this information just above the chart itself (top of page). Did you happen to read it, by chance?
Also please note that AstroDatabank gives the following:-
"Mark Penfield quotes a website on 2/1/2002 in which George Rijke, an operative with interpol in Brussels, says that he saw a copy of Bin Laden's birth records and they give March 10 1957, 10:58, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Mark says that the progressions fit perfectly for this time using LMT. Marguerite dar Boggia quoted Zip Dobyns in July 2002, that Karen Hamaker-Zondag said she had data for Osama Bin Laden from his hospital records. It is March 10, 1957, in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia, at 10:58."
Obviously this must have been my source back in 2002 when I first cast the chart. But, as it was so long ago and the memory not so good these days, I could not recall (when I did the write-up) just where I got the data from.
Apart from all this, my own experience in rectifying charts leads me to feel fairly confident that the above data is correct. Of course you are free to believe/disbelieve whatever you choose. However, to quote Sri Yukteswar (again):-
"It is never a question of belief; the only scientific attitude one can take on any subject is whether it is true."
Having delineated the horoscope myself, I find all the major factors of his life verified. Nothing stands out as being questionable...this is my proof that the data (I used) is correct.

Astrodatabank is giving a different date of birth for Osama.
Not just the time of birth but even the date is suspect.
If we continue studying his chart it will be merely conjecture and not based on facts.
