911 Commision member says U.S. has Bin Laden pinpointed.
Former Navy Secretary John Lehman said Thursday that the Pentagon has pinpointed the location of Osama bin Laden in the Baluchistan Region of Western Pakistan, but is holding back on rounding him up because it could destabilize the
government of Pakistani leader Pervez Musharraf.
Pick a date for the capture. My pick is Wednesday the 27th
Bin Laden is living in South Waziristan in the Baluchistan Mountains of the Baluchistan Region, Lehman told the San Bernadino Sun, after delivering a keynote speech on terrorism at Pitzer College in Claremont, Calif.
Well why don't we catch him? Read below.....
"There is an American presence in the area, but we can't just send in troops," he told the Sun. "If we did, we could have another Vietnam, and the United States cannot afford that right now."
But if we were not diverting all of our resources from the real war on terror, IE Bin Laden we could have the troops and support to take him. Of course we can not afford it we have spent $200B on turning Iraq into a hotbed of insurgents, terror, and model of discourse. I believe that in the U.S. We would support a long drawn out conflict if the greater cause was to get rid of Bin Laden and Al Quaida.
Lehman said that because Pakistan's Baluchistan Region is "filled with Taliban and al-Qaida members" who do not recognize the legitimacy of President Musharraf, the U.S. military is holding back.
No shit John, neither should we. The man took over in a coup, hates everything about us except for our money, and is a terrible dictator. I thought we spread democracy?
"We'll get [bin Laden] eventually," he added. "Just not now."
But maybe on Wednesday, this political season is wearing me out....
Can't you see the republicans sitting around giggling like a bunch of school girls, saying we are going to get Bin Laden and deliver the White House to Dubya. Maybe Lehman, is the only one with enough integrity to call the October surprise and warn us.
