Just As I Thought

Conspiracy theory #72

Hmmm. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I’d wonder about this article, considering other rumors that surfaced this week:

President Bush has approved a plan to intensify the effort to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, the New York Times reported Saturday on its Web site, quoting senior administration and military officials.

It said the plan would apply new forces and new tactics to the task of hunting down bin Laden, and take advantage of better intelligence and improving weather along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

The force is gradually shifting its resources to Afghanistan to step up the search for bin Laden, accused mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, and the ousted Afghan Taliban leader, Mohammad Omar, it said.

First off, if the rumors are true and bin Laden has already been captured, this is a way to ramp up the “Bush is a hero” story before they announce it. If the rumors aren’t true, which is likely, I wonder why it’s taken years to “gradually shift resources” to find him? What in the hell have they been doing all this time? Why has the administration shifted their attention to Iraq and called that the war on terror? Is it because they know they could defeat Saddam Hussein and feel powerless over bin Laden?
