The Mysterious Case of Osama Bin Laden

It seems another Bin Laden special is going to air on TV!


And lest you think my last post on this subject was weird, read this from the Washington Post as to why 9.11 isn't on the web page for OBL:

"There's no mystery here," said FBI spokesman Rex Tomb. "They could add 9/11 on there, but they have not because they don't need to at this point. . . . There is a logic to it."

No logic to it? So what does that say about needing to bring justice to the citizens of America for the crime perpetrated against it? What was our reason for invading Afghanistan, if not to catch Bin Laden, the so-called mastermind of the worst act of aggression on our soil since 1941? No logic, or no reality to the illusion that has been presented to the American public?

But it goes on, "It might seem a little strange from the outside, but it makes sense from a legal point of view," said Kelley, now in private practice. "If I were in government, I'd be troubled if I were asked to put up a wanted picture where no formal charges had been filed, no matter who it was."

I can agree with that, but it underscores my point that OBL has been made out to be Public Enemy #1, and yet legally nothing has been done which means that legally this administration has no real reason to justify utilizing resources in pursuit of this friend of the Bush family.

So then is terrorism really why we are in Iraq? And is it really the reason we are sabre rattling about Iran?

I don't think so.
