And if it's indeed that war on terror is over, could it be that there is a grand shift in strategy?
it seems that MSM suggests that there is a new cold war coming.
could it be; good bye war on terror, we have new war to work with now since we got our man?

Well it goes like this..
We chase one fella around the globe, invading countries, spend billions upon billions of dollars, suffer 34k American casualties (4k deaths, 30k severe and critical injuries) and when you fail to come up with an explanation as to why we have come up with nothing...
Well you change the name to someone you already got.
Though, I think this means the War on Terror is over, if we got our man, eh?

Don't believe what the White House is saying!! Osama Bin Laden is indeed the mastermind. Khalid Sheik Mohammed was the scapegoat. The White House doesn't want Osama Bin Laden hurt by any American vigilantes. So if you say that Osama was not the mastermind but Sheik Mohammed who is already caught, then nobody needs to go after Osama Bin Laden, and he is safe. But I believe Osama did it since he ordered it.

9/11 Memories By Owners, Members and Staff
The pentagon released a tape of Osama bin Laden discussing the successful attacks of September 11. Administration officials said it makes clear that bin Laden was the mastermind behind the operation. Ray Suarez begins our report.
RAY SUAREZ: The tape bore a label indicating it was made on November 9. Administration officials wouldn't reveal exactly how or when they got it, except to say it was found in a house in Jalalabad after anti-Taliban forces moved in. The U.S. Government translated the Arabic conversation and provided subtitles. The tape, which has a home video quality, shows bin Laden sitting on the floor in a bare room in a house in Kandahar. With him are several other men, including two aides and an unidentified cleric, or Sheikh. Bin Laden, identified on screen as UBL, made it clear he planned the September 11 attacks.

Semantics, folks. She clearly identified bin Laden's role in the briefing and it had not changed from the role they've pegged on him since day one. Bin Laden was the one who setup the plan required to carry out the plot and gave the ultimate orders, KSM was the one who actually masterminded the plot itself. You're arguing over nothing more than a semantical difference between Dana Pierino & Tony Snow. FOX News (and virtually every other news organization) used the term "mastermind" to describe bin Laden because it is a far quicker, more provocative title than "Al Qaida leader who gave the final orders to carry out mastermind KSM's plot." Tony Snow was FOX's #1 man so obviously he brought alot of the same semantics to the position at the White House that he had used on a daily basis on air at FOX.
It's the same thing if Keith Olbermann ever takes a position as press secretary for the Democrats and refers to Karl Rove as "Turd Blossom" while the next guy in simply calls him Karl Rove. My God, if this isn't running very close to the "it depends on what the definition of is, is" nonsense.
