Bush used Osama's words as an excuse to keep us in Iraq during his 9/11 Iraq War speech, I find this news very disturbing. From saying he doesn't think about him, to saying he thinks about him all the time--to saying...

Steve:

Thankfully, the president explained his philosophy to the Weekly Standard's Fred Barnes this week during a White House interview.

We now know why the Bush administration hasn't made the capture of Osama bin Laden a paramount goal of the war on terror. Emphasis on bin Laden doesn't fit with the administration's strategy for combating terrorism. Here's how President Bush explained this Tuesday: "This thing about . . . let's put 100,000 of our special forces stomping through Pakistan in order to find bin Laden is just simply not the strategy that will work."

Rather, Bush says there's a better way to stay on offense against terrorists. "The way you win the war on terror," Bush said, "is to find people [who are terrorists] and get them to give you information about what their buddies are fixing to do.

Why does Tora Bora comes to mind? I think Osama is a terrorist and deserves to be captured, don't you?
