Top General Says Terrorism Won't Be Eliminated if bin Laden & Zarqawi Are Captured

@ 12:01 PM (104 months, 7 days ago)

Looks like the Bush apologists within our own military have their latest talking points from 1600.

BushCo knows they have some explaining to do to the American people for the failure to capture Osama bin Laden, so they trotted out General Allen Peck, the Number 2 person in charge of coalition forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, to say that terrorism won't be eliminated even if Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi were to be captured.

Peck says "There's no single face to the enemy that we're fighting" and he questions whether bin Laden is the biggest threat to stability in the region.

Memo to General Peck and the rest of the Bush apologists: Of course terrorism will not be eliminated with bin Laden's capture.  Terrorism will never be eliminated as long as this earth exists in its present form. 

But we owe it to the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives on 9/11 to actively pursue the man responsible for that horrific event.

Instead, you serve as an apologist for a half a&s "Commander-in-Chief" who went from saying he wanted Osama bin Laden dead or alive, to saying he didn't know or care where Osama is.

In case the memory needs refreshing on Idiot Son's bin Laden bait and switch:

"I want justice.  And there's an old poster out West… I recall, that said, 'Wanted, Dead or Alive.'"

-  George W. Bush, September 17, 2001

"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."

- George W. Bush, September 13, 2001

"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."

- George W. Bush, March 13, 2002

"I am truly not that concerned about him."

- George W. Bush, March 13, 2002
