Didn't Ol' Sammy bin Laden train under Bush, the Elder's CIA?
I wonder why on earth we haven't yet caught him? Want to bet that we
never will? There is a possibility that /his/ hatred is well-planned.
Of course I know all about the rugged terrain of Afghanistan and his
myriad of hidey-holes but, DANG! If I had spit on the sidewalk and
gone to ground the local police would have me inside of 15 minutes. He
can't be that good when we have down-looking satellites all over low
earth orbit that can find a fly speck on the jacket of anyone using
several wavelengths of light.
As for the planes, there is also a large nuclear power plant nearby (in
fact within the flight path of at least a couple of the planes) the
plane-bombing of which would possibly have devastated the entire east
coast, no time requirements. If the intention was large numbers of dead
that would have been my choice. Why not do greatest damage instead of
Why, then, focus on Iraq and Saddam who had yet to do us any damage?
Don't you think that a few hundred thousand troops in Afghanistan would
have been the main thrust, Saddam to come later?
The whole scenario just doesn't make any sense.
