this might explain a few things about what's going on in afghanistan and pakistan right now.

i have to ask myself why? why now? why, so he can go "down in the books" as the guy who "got" osama? this makes me want to vomit. this is insanity.

(sorry i don't know how to do that external source thing yet.)

President George W Bush has enlisted British special forces in a final attempt to capture Osama Bin Laden before he leaves the White House.

Defence and intelligence sources in Washington and London confirmed that a renewed hunt was on for the leader of the September 11 attacks. “If he [Bush] can say he has killed Saddam Hussein and captured Bin Laden, he can claim to have left the world a safer place,” said a US intelligence source.

Bush arrives in Britain today on the final leg of his eight-day farewell tour of Europe. He will have tea with the Queen and dinner with Gordon Brown and his wife Sarah before holding a private meeting with Brown at No 10 tomorrow and flying on to Northern Ireland.

The Special Boat Service (SBS) and the Special Reconnaissance Regiment have been taking part in the US-led operations to capture Bin Laden in the wild frontier region of northern Pakistan. It is the first time they have operated across the Afghan border on a regular basis.

The hunt was “completely sanctioned” by the Pakistani government, according to a UK special forces source. It involves the use of Predator and Reaper unmanned aerial vehicles fitted with Hellfire missiles that can be used to take out specific terrorist targets.

One US intelligence source compared the “growing number of clandestine reconnaissance missions” inside Pakistan with those conducted in Laos and Cambodia at the height of the Vietnam war.

America rarely acknowledges the use of Predator and Reaper drones, but the most recent known strike was on a suspected Al-Qaeda safe house in the Pakistani province of North Waziristan earlier in June. Villagers said the house was empty.

Intelligence on the whereabouts of Bin Laden is sketchy, but some analysts believe he is in the Bajaur tribal zone in northwest Pakistan. He has evaded capture for nearly seven years. “Bush is swinging for the fences in the hope of scoring a home run,” said an intelligence source, using a baseball metaphor.

A Pentagon source said US forces were rolling up Al-Qaeda’s network in Pakistan in the hope of pushing Bin Laden towards the Afghan border, where the US military and bombers with guided missiles were lying in wait. “They are prepping for a major battle,” he said.

The main operations in Pakistan are being undertaken by Delta, the US army special operations unit, and the British SBS.

Special forces are being sent to capture or kill Al-Qaeda and Taliban fighters based on intelligence provided by the Special Reconnaissance Regiment and its US counterpart, the Security Co-ordination Detachment.

The step-up in military activity has increased tensions between Pakistan and the US. A senior Pakistani government source said President Pervez Musharraf had given tacit support to Predator attacks on Al-Qaeda.

Robert Gates, the US defence secretary, said last week that the US would “partner [the Pakistanis] to the extent they want us to” to combat insurgents.

Pakistan lodged a strong diplomatic protest last week over what it claimed was an airstrike on a border post with Afghanistan that killed 11 of its troops.

The United States declined to accept this version of events. “It is still not exactly clear what happened,” said Stephen Hadley, the national security adviser.

I don't think this has anything to do with him wanting to look good in the history books. I think he's afraid that Obama is going to win and immediately pull all of the troops making capturing Osama an impossibility.

Ah, i see George has woken up to the fact that it doesn't matter how much oil he pilfers from the autonomous region of kurdistan, the people of America are focusing on the fact that he has failed to meet the objective which started this whole mess off in the first place.

Now then, i wonder whether or not people are going to realise soon that we basically just spent 7 years in Iraq and Afganistan* getting mortared to *snip* for no reason other than to bring in private security contracts and to pinch a bit of oil.



*Including pre-war subterfuge efforts.

Or could it be that Obama will actually capture Osama and "Tim" will spill the beans? See, my speculation is as valid as yours.

What's he gonna do? Dig up his corpse and parade it around like a trophy?
Can he claim the victory if he was killed by any number of diseases?

Maybe he can take him out cold storage thaw him out and say.."Look! We got him!"

or perhaps find a body double. i guess that's been done before? wasn't there a theory that saddam is lounging on a beach somewher and some homeless man was the one hanged? that whole thing was just weird.

I thought Osama Bin Laden was only made the fall guy for the 9-11 stuff? Bush & Co. probably had him protected in a secret deal, now, in true Bush fashion, his own sorry needs take precedence and so he's prepared to now go back on his deal and bring him out for sacrifice. I guarantee you that if Osama was offered up like this, the majority of Americans would once again forget/ignore/deny that Bush & co. were behind the whole thing in the first place. It would sure take the heat off.
It would also be true to form, for him, and for them.
