    Thanx.... one thing you should know, if you can't back something you want to say with a link or a reference, don't say it, no one will take what you say as any more than your unsupported opinion..... just saying.

    I did back it with a link.

    I didn't at first because I thought everyone knew about that quote. I'm surprised you don't. You are less informed than I realized.

    I've read that within of week of his "Bin Laden: Dead or Alive" comment that President Bush regretted it and wanted to back off of it as it made the entire war on terror too focused on just one man.

    You'd be pretty shocked to hear some of his other material. You should have paid attention more closely.

    And? You're not making your point. The SecDef should be more worried about his boots on the ground and the overall strategy. You think they didn't know it would be difficult to catch bin Laden? Of course they did, yet it was part of the mission.....but certainly not all of it. For you to think that Rumsfeld should be sitting in his office waiting for blow by blow report only about bin Laden is silly and/or disingenuous.

    Bush absolutely correct, this Jihad much bigger, much more than Bin Laden.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    I didn't necessarily have a point. You make what you want of it.
