Bad taste,

but a cleverly timed peice of work with a clever message.

For right or wrong it works well.

has absolutely no reference to bin laden at all.
might have been "tactical" 6 years ago.

Google Maps is the end of creation. That has to be one of the most tired idea in advertising. Still get the point across though.

The line doesn't work. Should be just "We'll find you."

"We'll still find you", implies that there is something wrong with the product. We'll find you despite our product being a piece of shit.

Don't mind this, actually.
Aerial shot + 'Afghanistan' = topical.
Will gain attention/comment.
Hence comments above.

Should have had DHL courier going into a cave.

And I won't be surprised if they do manage to find Osama. All the people in the world including the press is able to find these terrorists and other crimilnals but the Army or the police can never manage to reach them.
