There's been a lot of talk about cutting and running lately; specifically, from "stay the course" (whatever that means) neo-cons who want us to make Iraq the 51st state.
Well, my conservative friends, there's some "cutting and running" going on in the CIA that should upset you; although I doubt it will. After all, Osama WHO?
Turns out the CIA has closed a unit (known as Alec Station) that was focused on hunting down Osama bin Laden.
For a decade, the mission of the Alec Station unit was to hunt down Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants. But that unit disbanded last year (and why are we just now learning of this?) and it's former employees have been re-assigned elsewhere in the CIA.
CIA Spinmeister Jennifer Millerwise Dyck says that despite the closing of the Unit, the effort to find Osama is as strong as ever. Dyck says "The efforts to find Osama bin Laden are as strong as ever." Really now? I can't tell! Remind me again why we had him corned in Torra Bora and let him go?
I guess George Bush was, for once in his life, telling the truth when he said he doesn't know or care where Osama is, and he doesn't spend much time on him. That is George Bush's tribute to the nearly 3,000 people who were murdered on Bin Laden's orders on 9/11, and the loved ones they left behind.
