America's Most Wanted, Part 2

The Fixer at Alternate Brain, in an introduction to a long excerpt from an investigative piece done by der Spiegel on the bin Laden clan (which I highly recommend; at the very least, read Fix’s excerpt), notes:
Since we seem to have forgotten about Good Ol' Osama, killer of 3000 friends and neighbors of mine, I figure it's time to see what others have been doing to track him. I mean, it's not like (p)resident Dicknose gives a shit anymore.
No kidding. Which reminds me...

I decided to check back in on the FBI to see if they had updated their Most Wanted information on old Osama, since, as of February of this year, it still hadn’t been updated to include 9/11.

Well, the entire FBI site seems to have been redone, and the list of their Top 10 Most Wanted Terrorists note still has Osama in the top spot…but still no mention of 9/11 on his rap sheet:
Bin Laden is believed to be in Afghanistan. He is left-handed and walks with a cane.

Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. In addition, Bin Laden is a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world.
What is up with that? Can some clever Shaker who knows more about this kind of thing than I do explain why 9/11 would be so glaringly absent from that list?
