    I first that and wondered why this hasn't been done before? Shouldn't Bush have been trying to do this all along? Or is he still the man who claims, "I don't think about him [bin Laden] much?"

    Then it occurred to me that perhaps sending the Special Boat Services to a landlocked nation probably wasn't the best idea since Teddy Roosevelt's people invited the Secretary of the Swiss Navy to attend his inauguration. Are the SBS like the SEALs? I know a good deal about the SAS as they're the people who nearly shot me in Northern Ireland, but know very little about the SBS.

    While I want to see bin Laden unleashed to a crowd of 9/11 survivors in Times Square, I wonder why we haven't have been searching this zealously all along and I suspect, with the most disdain in my mind for even thinking it, if this isn't a political ploy that's been planned for some time to coincide with Bush leaving office. If it is, then my contempt for Bush and his cronies has just descended past anything I thought possible.

    At this point I doubt Bush can find his own shoes.

    I wondered about that SBS thing too. I've never heard of them before. Have they not noticed every video that bin Laden sends out is from a cave or perhaps basement bunker type tv studio. What makes them think he is adrift at sea after all these years? :confused: Why not call out Scotland Yard and Deputy Dawg while he's at it?

    I have no doubt that they will miracuously 'find' Osama bin Laden just in time to make Mc Cain look like an ideal President. Just like they did with the hostages in Iran back in 1980. The republicans brokered the deal so that they would be released after Carter left office. Thereby making it appear that Reagan had brought our people home.

    I'm completely convinced this is precisely the agenda that's been planned all along....and, in fact, I've been calling this one at least as far back as Saddam's capture. Time will tell...

    You mean he's still in Pakistan? And all this time I thought Osama was sharing an apartment with Manual Noriega in Miami Beach.

    Why doesn't the Pres just get his dad or James Baker to put a call into their friend Shafig bin Laden? I'm sure old Shafig must stay in touch with his little bro.

    LOL, so that's why the French soldiers wasn't allowed to catch or kill him. Bin Laden has been sighted by the French more than once, but every time they have been ordered to leave him alone by the US commanders.

    My thought as well... I bet he's been enjoying life in the US for years - or perhaps on an luxury island of his choice.

    Well - it's been rather handy having the 'bogeyman' out there in the big wide world for the last 7 years. Think of the all wonderful things the Department of Homeland Security has been able to do to protect Americans, indeed the world, from him. But now it looks better to catch him.

    Anyone who doesn't understand why British special forces are the best choice for a Pakistan based operation really doesn't know much about military or political history.

    I hope Bin Laden stays hidden til Obama is Commander in Chief - but my intuition tells me this main be a vain hope.

    Yes, George Bush is really guilty of all the allegedly wacky conspiracies the lunatic-fringe on the left accuse him of so I will let you all in on a little-known secret = you are correct; we have been working with Osama the whole time!

    We fixed him up with a beautiful luxury cave in the mountains of Pakistan complete with air-conditioning, running water and a toilet with a solid gold seat for his admirable efforts. Oh yeah, and Bush along with his &#8220;oil buddies&#8221; built a special pipeline up to the cave so Osama can drink all of the oil he wants complements of George Bush! As a special favor Tony Blair even stole some crystal from the queen for Osama to drink his oil out of!

    I will let you all in on some more secrets soon so you can put all of those that see you as nothing more than the far side of the lunatic-fringe in their place for a change!

    I know for a fact that Osamma Bin Ladin is being protected in a spaceship behind the moon by a crew of self-aware Tater Tots. If we pour out enough ketchup, they will come.

    This is so flashback from seven years ago.

    Fact remains, Bush & Co. failed to find Bin Laden and basically declared him a non-issue. To capture him now is nothing more than a trophy - and as insignificant and pointless as the pictures of Saddam in panties or his execution.

    The fight against terrorists, or sub national groups, which operate outside of any central control, is the issue. Resources should be going towards finding a way to combat them before regressing to the impotent Bin Laden. :smile:

    Somewhere Donald Snow and other scholars of the WoT are scratching their heads and asking 'what the fuck is going on, do we have priorities?'.

    We shouldn’t be so quick to conclude anything here; we may well know exactly where he is at and have known all along using him for gathering intelligence. Leaving Osama in place all this time could easily have netted the location of thousands of his “friends” worldwide.

    This latest announcement (if it is true) could be another in a long line of similar announcements that stir up a beehive of communication activity amongst the religious wacko’s allowing our guys to know where to aim the next artillery barrage.

    Not in the US. He's too recognizable.

    Where did you hear or read about the French being told to leave him alone? Do you have any citations?

    You think? You think he's not capable of shaving and wearing a suit? Or perhaps jeans and sneakers? Bollocks would anyone recognise him - he'd get looked through just 90% of other foreign looking types. Cept maybe at airports - but I rather suspect when he travels he does so on an Indian, or perhaps even Israeli*, passport. That's if he hasn't bought a US passport, of course.

    * No - I would not put it past him.

    I was wondering the same.

    But hey, if the French did see him and wanted to engage it'd only be to surrender :rolleyes::wink:

    I wouldn't know why the French would sit around and wait to contact the US and ask permission to take this guy down. That alone don't make any sense. So much freaking bullcrap you can't believe a thing anymore.
