Abstract

The most bewildering similarity between Robin Hood and Osama bin Laden is their hidden presence. To this day, scholars who expended their entire intellectual capital on tracing Robin's historical whereabouts are unsure whether he operated from Sherwood forests in Nottingham or from Barnsdale parks in Yorkshire. This controversy muddles history but nonetheless furnishes texture to Robin's legend. Now cometh Osama! Despite technology and resources available to experts and spies and despite a $25 million bounty placed on his head, Osama's whereabouts remain a deep mystery.

Keywords: legends, Robin Hood, Osam bin Laden, Mystery, law enforcement, bounty
