My personal opinion is that the emphasis has been taken off bin Laden because al Quaeda has been effectively disorganized to the extent that he is no longer a legitimate priority.

He can't hide forever, I don't believe, and eventually we are going to capture someone who knows where he is and is willing to talk.
Remember that, as much as everyone here hates government secrecy, we can't tell the world everything we know or we will blow our progress and advantages.
