Let me make myself perfectly clear ...
... regarding the last line of the previous post, where I stated that we have higher priorities than the capture of Osama bin Laden.
I still have a great desire to see Osama's head decorating the White House fence, with his body "sent to glory in a Glad bag" in some undisclosed landfill.
However, that is only one objective in the total War on Terror -- and we must never lose sight of this. When we take his life, another will spring up in his place ... and we must make sure that we have preemptively denied that "other" the tools, the people ... and even any shred of a moral/geopolitical standing ... that would allow him to continue bin Laden's brutal dream.
That -- and not just Osama's capture -- is how we will progress to victory in this war.
