Is Anybody Paying Attention?

On June 20, 2005, it was reported that CIA chief Porter Goss has an "excellent idea" where Osama is hiding. Unfortunately, however, Goss held that legal notions of state sovereignty prevent the United States from swooping into Osama's sanctuary and abducting him.
"When you go to the question of dealing with sanctuaries in sovereign states, you're dealing with a problem of our sense of international obligation, fair play"
Funny thing, however. Four days later, on June 24, it was reported that thirteen (13) alleged CIA agents abducted a muslim cleric in 2003 from his home in Italy (a sovereign state) and flew the cleric to Egypt for interrogation and alleged torture. A clear violation of Italy's sovereignty, right?

Is anybody paying attention? Why didn't anybody point out this obvious contradiction? Let me get this right, we are willing to violate one of our closest ally's sovereignty in order to kidnap some anonymous cleric, but we don't want to offend the sovereignty of Pakistan, Iran, Tajikistan, or Uzbekistan for the prize of catching Osama bin Laden? Is this some kind of twisted joke? Since when did international law get in the way of this administration?

Like I've asked before, does our current administration truly want to catch Osama bin Laden? If we caught or killed him, wouldn't that be like killing the goose who lays the golden eggs? The neocon agenda has more to gain from a living, plotting, and dangerous Osama Bin Laden than a dead or captured Osama Bin Laden. Thats not an opinion, thats a fact. The neocon policy of worldwide petrol-hegemony (at any cost!) thrives on Osama Bin Laden.

Isn't it better to keep him out there, keep the fear machine cranking, perhaps raise the terror level from time to time when the President's polls are in deep trouble? Perhaps he can release a videotape from time to time to remind us that we need to spend more money waging wars against brown people who sit on top of the world's oil supply.

This isn't a conspiracy theory, this is too obvious to be a conspiracy theory! Its plain as day if someone cared to look. The dots are there to be connected.

There is the old saying about "following the money" to solve a case. Well, follow the money. Who has gained the most from 9/11?

Is anybody paying attention?

I ask you to send your prayers to the victims of the London terrorist attacks today. Pray for a better tommorrow my friend. God bless.

Pray for the victims of the London terrorist attacks. And also pray for the people of Egypt who's envoy was just killed by terrorists.

In regards to your post, yes, I do tend to believe that the neocons enjoy chasing bin Laden because it has its benefits.

Of course we're not paying attention. Too many more important diversions going on like pop-star trials, brain dead patients rights, court appointments, and of course our war in Iraq.

Sheesh, even today's London attacks will be linked to Iraq soon enough. Osama? You're right. He serves these neocons much better as an elusive target.

My prayers are certainly with those families who suffer today as a result fo the bombings. And my heart also goes out to innocent people who will likely get caught up in the crossfire of further retribution.

I can only wonder what nation will suffer for the actions of a few people today.

Once thing that always gets forgotten is that revenge does not equate to justice. We all want justice!

He has an excellent idea of where he is...within what tolerance? Does he have an address? Does that mean he's almost positive bin Ladin is in Pakistan? Either is a reasonable interpretation of Gosses words. If Goss knew an address, there would be no excuse not to take him out. If Goss knows what country Usama is in but not nearer than 500 miles and those 500 miles happen to be mountains swiss-cheese like with caves, that's an entirely different thing. I tend to think that when Goss says he has an excellent idea where bin Ladin is, he's talking about the latter, not the former which makes the going in and taking out an entirely different proposition.

Further more, UBL is guarded at all times by a small army with numerous layers of protection. Even if Goss knows where UBL is nearer than 500 miles, going in and taking UBL out will be much more complicated than a few coverts sneaking into a home in the middle of the night and spiriting him out of Italy. What we're talking about is sending a large number of heavily armed troops to search mountains and caverns not known to us but which UBL knows intimately. The size of force required could only be considered an invasion of a country, an act of war. That's an entirely different ball of wax than an in-and-out mission that no one might even be aware of until the mission was completed.

Even that last paragraph is moot if UBL is in Iran, say, rather than where I think Goss thinks UBL is. Though I can't prove it, I really don't think that any games are being played here.
