  • George Walker Bush, the man whose prime campaign plank has been his ability to wage war on terror, could have had Osama Bin Laden's head handed to him on a platter on his very first day in office, and the offer held good until February 2 of 2002. Bush and Co. did not 'fail' to capture Osama Bin Laden in Tora Bora, it was a deliberate strategy -- If they ended the terrorist threat too soon, how could they continue to carry out the war on Terror? George W. Bush and Richard Cheney have cynically used a national tragedy to further their aggressive policies of 'Great Power' domination, and Bin Laden remains Bush's biggest asset.
  • The political idiots didn't want a full-scale commitment to the war, so we did it on the cheap with few troops and local tribes. Various factions of various tribes basically allowed him to escape into Pakistan.
  • Because they're allies. If it hadn't been for him, Bush wouldn't have gotten past Egypt! Let alone Afganistan, 9/11 was the best thing that could've happened for him.
  • To provide an excuse to obtain more energy and effort to prolong the Iraqi occupation so they can solidify the infrastructure and security around the oil producing regions.
  • Because Osama Bin Laden is not guilty of the attacks on 9-11, Bush and his bastards did it so that they could attack Iraq and steal all of the oil. These depraved sons of bitches thought that they could lead us all around by the nose in the name of patriotism, when they are nothing but a bunch of corporate pirates stealing money from tax payers.
  • I prefer not to say what I think, here are two videos which explain why bin Laden was not captured in Tora Bora.
  • The Tora Bora area is a mess of horrible terrain and lawlessness. The people there feel no loyalty to any country and the terrain is horribly inpassable for military forces. There are so many caves and such a network of tribes there that would work in concert with each other for bin Laden because he is a Muslim and he has money that it is nearly impossible to find him among the caves and hide outs. He has the upper hand as the hunted because he knows where he will be next and he does not spend much time in any one place. Eventually, I believe he will be caught, but it could take years.
  • Perpetual war is what tBush wanted, so why REALLY try and capture the guy who can keep that going?
  • How else could he beat the Iraqi war drum otherwise? He needed Osama out there. Osama, if captured alive, would have refuted any Iraqi connection. In that case, BAM! The neocon dream of oil domination disappears faster than a Clinton budget surplus. If we could not "Find" him, then the plausible lies about Iraq could work. It was all planned. Long before the election.
  • About a month after the tragic events of 9/11/01, an NPR reporter was interviewing a group of highly educated Pakistanis in Islamabad, and asked them if Osama Bin Laden could have been responsible for the WTC and Pentagon bombings. Most of the intellectual doctors, lawyers, and clerics in the room said that Bin Laden couldn't have done such a horrendous thing. It was impossible. In May 2001, a high-level CIA operative was definitely seen visiting Bin Laden in a French hospital where the Saudi was supposedly having surgery. This was after an arrest warrant had supposedly been issued by Bill Clinton in September of 2000. Bin Laden was in very bad healthy prior to 9/11, and many Saudis, Pakistanis, and Afghanis have said, off the record, that Obama died shortly before, or shortly after, 9/11. It is very clear to me that the U.S. Executive Branch (the Intelligence Community (CIA/NSA/DIA), the FBI, the FAA, and the military) acted very suspiciously prior to, and after, 9/11. The crime scenes at the WTC and the Pentagon were desecrated beyond forensic use, the evidence was destroyed, Bin Laden's relatives in the U.S. were flown out of the country by order to GWB. In an after-the-fact analysis of the WTC bombings, it was pretty obvious that there was a stand-down order given by high-level Air Force officers to keep the jet fighters from reaching the WTC in time to shoot down the airliners. It is pretty clear from after-the-fact analysis that bombs had been planted in the WTC Towers which caused them to implode and collapse, just like controlled demolitions. It is pretty clear, as a result of scientific-engineering investigation, that a Boeing 757 did not crash into the Pentagon. It was a smaller type of attack aircraft. 10 tons of 757 engine metal, titanium and steel, cannot be consumed in a fire fueled by kerosine, which is jet fuel. The entire video footage of the Pentagon crash was recorded on surveillance cameras at a service station across from the Pentagon wall. Momments after the crash, "moments," federal intelligence agents, probably from the DSA or the NSA, confiscated the tapes, and no one has seen them since they were taken into federal Executive Branch custody. How could federal agents be there so quickly unless they knew it was going to happen? Good question? I think that Osama was either nearly dead, or dead, when the military was allowing him to escape at Tora Bora. It was, really, all a ruse, like others have astutely said in this blog, to allow Bush to pursue a needless and deadly war on terror for the sake of oil and imperial federal power. The Patriot Act was an exercise in unconstitutional legislation (much like the late 18th Century Alien and Sedition Act, which Thomas Jeffverson said "was as constitutional as a golden calf in the U.S. Senate). God will never forgive the White House war criminals who have created a needless war, sent nearly 5,000 GIs to their needless deaths, and killed over a 100,000 innocent Iraqis. It's too bad they got away with murder in this life.
