Re-hunting Osama

By Michael J.W. Stickings

In a move that I'm sure is entirely unrelated to Bush's sagging approval rating and rising opposition to the Iraq War -- see here -- "the CIA is moving additional man power and equipment into Pakistan in the effort to find Osama bin Laden and his deputy Ayman al Zawahri," according to ABC News.

Don't get me wrong, this is a good thing. It's just that it should have been the focus all along. Instead of the ongoing and rather disastrous misadventure in Mesopotamia.

But who knows what's really going on? Who knows what's truth and what's just more spin?

  • Cheney stamped his foot, so Musharraf got someone arrested just to placate him. I'm sure Musharraf and the ISI have it all under control -- I'm sure they're telling Americans all kinds of things, but nothing that would actually lead to the al-Qaeda leadership. Musharraf won't really cooperate with us -- he values his job and his life too much.

  • (I meant to say I'm sure whoever was arrested is misdirecting the Americans.)

  • Funny how just a couple of weeks ago, Osama was no big deal. Think it has something to do with the latest polling putting Bush back down to 30%? In fact I saw 29% somewhere.
