Bin Laden is back
Well, despite the biggest manhunt in world history, Osama Bin Lade is alive and kicking. But George "Dead or Alive" Bush has his attentions elsewhere.
In all fairness to Bush, capturing a sole man like Bin Laden is all but an impossible task -- the world is huge and Al Qaeda has a strong worldwide organization that can shelter their leader. What is supremely irresponsible is Bush's obsession with Iraq -- an impotent tin pot dictatorship that hasn't threatened anyone in over a decade-- when our nation's current and most vicious enemy is still loose out and about.
While the US military can fight wars on two fronts, our intelligence infrastructure can only focus the brunt of its resources at one problem at a time. It is clear that Bin Laden and Al Qaeda are our biggest threat, and should be dealt with accordingly.Posted November 13, 2002 07:01 AM | Comments (28)
