"I am not that concerned" (gwb about obl)

Bush didn't capture Bin Laden.

He had 3 years
He had 3000 reasons
He has 3 days left to spin it

Well, apparently, he doesn't have the "magic presidential I-have-a- plan" wand that Kerry seems to be claiming that he has. In lieu of the magic wand - which if he had he could have waived and produced OBL on a platter - he did what other mortal presidents do. He tasked the military to (a) topple the Taliban, (b)crush al Quaeda, (c) capture 80% of the leadership structure of al Quaeda and (d) oddly enough, prevent an attack on America or it's civilian/diplomatic assets for 3 years.

Here's the problem with your post. If you expect a President to do something personally - like capture OBL, you will always be disappointed. Even Kerry isn't going to leave the oval office to "slap the cuffs" on OBL. Presidents operate through others, like the military, and a wise leader will allow the people in the field to exercise discretion and to occasionally fail.

But, hey, if you want perfection, vote for Kerry. Apparently he can make cripples walk. And he's got a "secret plan."

Listen up - I work in the intelligence community. We are dealing with a very large range of risks.
If you were asked to repaint a room, and before you were done, or put on a second coat, how would you like it if a handful of narcissistic weenies living in comfort dwell endlessly on one spot under a window sill.
Terror did not start and does not end with bin Laden.

Stop hating your fellow citizens who are working to keep your head, feet, and hands attatched to your thorax. You'll make people think that you're nothing more than a horse's ass.

Maybe the CIA should hire you since you seem to know where he is. We hadn't heard from OBL in a year in a half because we had him hiding in the bowels of the earth for fear of his life.
