OBL was the face of terrorism__the enmy of Merica needs a face, or at least that's what Cheney had trained W to believe.<quoted text>
Of course, Bush wanted to kill Osama. Why do you think we bombed the heck out of Afghanistan immediately following 9/11 and then bombed the heck out of the mountains where he thought Osama was hiding?
When we lost track of Osama and had reason to believe he was dead inside one of those mountains, there were much bigger fish to fry and Bush concentrated on the bigger fish at that point.
It would have been distracting if the American public were led to believe Osama was the only mastermind of 9/11 and there weren't others just as dangerous, if not more so, in the al Qaeda ranks.
A lot of them were wiped out or captured in Iraq when they scurried over there to claim Iraq the frontlines.
This president would have ignored all other threats and all other al Qaeda ring leaders believing Osama was the brass ring when he wasn't anymore.
Honesty isn't this president's strong suit. Looking good and taking all the credit for someone else's tough decisions is.
Cheney could work W like a puppet, knew just how to massage and which words to use.
Hah, honesty is not your strong point babe.
