    Inspiring Stories of Hope
    The U.S. government uses technology to help figure out what Osama Bin Laden may look like now.

    Osama Bin Laden is getting a digital makeover courtesy of the FBI.

    As part of the ongoing search for the terror mastermind, the feds have released two computer renderings of what Bin Laden may look like today, at age 51, almost a decade after the nine-eleven attacks.
    The two images portray Bin Laden with graying hair and slightly deeper wrinkles than he sported in his most recent video, issued a year ago.
    One picture shows him wearing his traditional clothing – robe and turban. The other features him in a simple collared shirt, with a trimmed beard and shorter hair.
    The FBI’s website also notes that Bin Laden walks with a cane. The impact that the new images will have on the hunt for Bin Laden may be minimal.
    Already, the FBI has placed a $25 million bounty on his head for the September 11 attacks and the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya – to no avail.
    Many terror experts say that Bin Laden is likely hiding in the cavernous region along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, far from the fashion police.
