We all know how successful Bush and his boys have been at finding WMD in Iraq and his hunt for master criminal bin Laden has been just as successful. So here is what one of Bush’s senior generals has said today to make it appear like they are winning the war. This is from Yahoo News:
U.S. General Says Bin Laden ‘Out of the Picture’
By Yousuf Azimy
BAGRAM, Afghanistan (Reuters) – A senior U.S. general said on Friday that al Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden had “taken himself out of the picture” and that his capture was not essential to winning the “war on terror.”
General Peter Pace, vice chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at U.S. military headquarters just north of Kabul that the 11,500-strong U.S.-led force hunting al Qaeda and Taliban militants was not focusing on individuals.
“He (bin Laden) has taken himself out of the picture,” Pace told reporters after visiting U.S. troops serving in Afghanistan.
“It is not an individual that is as important as is the ongoing campaign of the coalition against terrorists,” he said.
The last time I checked you can only capture or kill terrorists, not the terror itself. And we all know, bin Laden has not taken himself out of any picture. He’s still very much active and causing damage all around the world. Bush really wants to appear like he’s winning this war otherwise, it’s Dean or Clark in ’94. Whoo Hoo!!!
