LONDON – Osama bin Laden personally has targeted Iraq-bound Prince Harry, saying he is wanted “dead or alive,” says an exclusive breaking report today in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Code-breakers for MI6, Britain’s external intelligence agency, have cracked al-Qaida’s secret communications system and discovered Prince Harry is named as a prime target for the terror network when he goes on active service to Iraq.

The MI6 code-breakers also have discovered the first real evidence in over a year that bin Laden is alive and personally has authorized the capture of the young prince – third in line to the throne – “dead or alive.”

The phrase is a chilling echo of that used by President Bush about bin Laden after 9/11.

Bin Laden has a $40 million bounty on his head after five years of evading capture. The U.S.-led hunt so far has cost over $1 billion.

While no reward so far has been offered by al-Qaida for Harry’s capture or death, the terrorist group recently published a reminder: “We do not forget that our enemies will pay well to capture our beloved Sheik Osama. When the time comes we will also reward those who kill our enemies.”

Both the queen and Prince Charles have been separately told by their private secretaries of the mounting intelligence concerns after they met with MI6 chief Sir John Scarlett.

“The Royals recognize Harry is no ‘ordinary soldier’ and that his capture would be a priceless propaganda prize for al-Qaida. What would Blair do if they threatened to behead Harry?” asked a senior intelligence officer.
