President Barack Obama's national security adviser says he isn't sure if Osama bin Laden is dead or alive.

Retired Marine Gen. James Jones said Sunday that U.S. intelligence agencies are looking at data and watching for confirmed appearances by the al-Qaida leader.

Jones said, "The truth is, I don't think anybody knows."

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs last week said Obama wants bin Laden brought to justice, but that the U.S. is focused on more than just one person.

Jones spoke on ABC's "This Week."
