Usama Bin Hidin, but Who Bin Lookin?

September 10, 2006

UBLTomorrow is five years gone since 9-11, and the person with the face that’s been put on the attacks— the mastermind —is still at large. I can afford to be merely disgusted at this failure*— to fall short of: completely consumed with hot rage that no one has been brought to justice for the crime —because none of the victims were family or close personal friends.

A trial would be cathartic for everyone, though, wouldn’t it?

“I truly am not that concerned about [Bin Laden].”OFFAL

*No, the failure is not that of the troops putting their life on the line in the search. The blame is on a leadership that is truly not that concerned with justice, or closure. . . Or, maybe they are. (MTT:) Maybe they’re all over it. Maybe we’re in for an October closure surprise.

**I know, I know. It was concise without the blockquotes and the end notes, and the image.

    but we got Saddam in a U.S. controlled prison – doesn’t that count for anything?

    Apparently it does serve to vindicate the VP’s assessment before that Iraq would not be a long, costly battle.

    As he explained to Russert this past Sunday:

    Q But again, wasn’t your judgment overly rosy — greeted as liberators —

    THE VICE PRESIDENT: No, you gave me a choice, Tim — “will you be greeted as occupiers or liberators;” and I said, “We’ll be greeted as liberators.”

    Q But I said, “What about a long, costly, bloody battle,” and you said, “It’s unlikely to unfold that way.”

    THE VICE PRESIDENT: And that’s true within the context of the battle against the Saddam Hussein regime and his forces. That went very quickly. It was over in a relatively short period of time. What obviously has developed after that, the insurgency has been long and costly and bloody. No —

    So, yeah, it does count for something.
