Bin Laden: Leader Of 9/11 Attack In US Custody

Fri Mar 07, 2003 3:08 am

ABC's Diane Sawyer is reporting that US Special Forces have pinpointed Bin Laden location - Sawyer went on to say that in her opinion "they've got him"

President Bush is calling a news conference for tonight.

The press conference tonight is an update on Iraq. It has nothing to do with Bin Laden.

Coincidently only a few day after they got his 'No.3'.
Looking forward to seeing the conference, if indeed they have got him, after all it is as you say North County, Diane Sawyers opinion.
Fingers crossed though.

Cool!! I hope it turns out to be true. This would be the first good news in about a year.

Oh, don't worry, Johnny cochran and Ron Kuby are already setting up their defense and Babs and Martin Sheen are funding it.

If this turns out to be true, then there will be no regular trial for OBL. He will get Justice in the old school manner. I don't think Martin Sheen is a traitor because of his vehement anti-war views. I cannot believe the hell he is getting for expressing himself.

747-451: That was a really sad commentary on your part. Martin Sheen and Barbra Streisand (irritating and clueless as she may be) are just as patriotic as you are, if not more so. Expressing one's opinion against a war that may end up killing tens of thousands of Americans and Iraqis represent the kind of rights that America enshrines. These people may be wrong at the end of the day, especially if a war against Iraq is successfully fought and if a democratic regime does result in Iraq, but equating them with being supporters of OBL shows how sad the commentary on here has become. Since when did being a patriot mean being a supporter of Dubya?

Americans who are against GWBush and his war are NOT for OBL, in spite of what you and Rush Limbaugh and other gutless armchair generals (who would never EVER rush off to battle themselves) think.

I think the US has been *extremely* unlucky all this time ever since starting the war on Afghanistan & assisting the Northern Alliance in over-throwing the Taliban to not have captured OBL. Hopefully they are as close as ever now. They are bound to capture OBL eventually (i.e. over the next few months, hopefully sooner as has been reported here already) what with the intensifying searches & Pakistan’s willful cooperation.

Bin Laden: Leader Of 9/11 Attack In US Custody

That seems a little misleading at this point. I don't see reports of this anywhere.

Bin Laden is dead and has been for over a year! How many times does it take to get it through? You guys act like this guy is Elvis or something. Like he's still out there.

"The press conference tonight is an update on Iraq. It has nothing to do with Bin Laden. "

Iraq will never have anything to do with OBL, not anymore nowadays. They were probably talking about that other guy from a few days ago.

Jaysit, N79969:

I never questioned their patriotism, only excercising my right to free speech by being critical of their views, perceptions and predilections. I also recognize and criticize their embracing of alternative views on justice and terror, again my right to free speech. What I will most be critical of is that they have easier access to media outlets to spew than the "average" citizen, because of their "supposed" celebrity. I also take particular disgust in Babs/Sheen's childish manner in expressing her critcisms. My sarcasm is a counterpoint to their vitriol, not necessarily to their point of view, as disgusting as it may be.

Secondly, if you have read my other posts, I do not support a war or GW Bush's politics. I am critical of a war to correct a problem which is Europe's not necessarily ours. Our assests are better used in protecting and reinforcing our selves, not fixong someone else;s mess.

747-451,

That's cool. Martin Sheen has been receiving hate mail and calls calling him a traitor. My commentary was directed to that aspect and not what you said per se. I don't think I said anything challenging your right to speak though.


Lehpron,

They think OBL met with the hairball they arrested in Pakistan as late as last month.

Nearly a day has past since the first post of this topic. What's up, do they have him, or is the photoshop presentation from Bush not ready yet.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
Perhaps he should ask Powell for advice, the dumbass.

Manni, you're the kind that, if bin Laden was marched in front of the UN, in chains, you'd say it was some kind of U.S. fakery. Now, who's the dumbass?

Manni, perhaps if you projected some objective, intellegent opinion, your opinions would be taken with more than a grain of salt at best...and flamebait at worst.
You're only as good as your last departure.

Manni, that's not a personal comment, but you can be found apologizing for, or excusing terrorism, you do so. You don't outright support it with your views, but you encourage it because of your antipathy towards anything the U.S. might do to stop it.

And it's a typical dodge, when you ignore what was said. That's where your credibility suffers. You would be instantly skeptical of the U.S. if we did have bin Laden, and chained him in Central Park, for the world to see.

Well Alpha 1, iIwould be pleased if the US ever gets Bin Laden chained up somewhere. That way, Bin Laden and 9/11 could no longer be abused to play on the emotions of the Americans, next time Bush needs the support of it's people.

BTW, How about Powell's photoshop presentation, he made the US look bad a zillion times more than I ever did on airliners.net Not that i care, as you words mean nothing to me, altough my comments must have taste you sour, considering your bitter replies.

have a nice day...

Your comments elicit harsh responses because they seem to come from your seemingly bottomless well of hatred and cynicism.

So, you don't give a shit if he's chained up for ordering the murder of 3000 people on 9/11, and hundreds of others over the years, is that right? To you, he's only a nuisance because the U.S. has the NERVE to wage war on terrorism.

Believe me, Manni, no president will have to play on the emotions of Americans ever again when it comes to terrorism, the Iraq nonsense aside. If it comes to the likes of bin Laden, and others, the American people don't need to be nudged by a president or a member of Congress. The everlasting images of 9/11, which seem to not concern you at all, are all the reason the American people need to go after terrorism.

Really pathetic on your part.

I'm not buying your sorry card Alpha1. Saying that Bush abuses 9/11 to win support on his war does not indicate that I give shit about the 3000 killed in these attacks. You're apparently trying to use similar tactics as Bush , by playing with my previous post and adding shit and 9/11 with it. To win what alpha1, support for your deep hatred to anyone who disagree with you?

really pathetic on your part, then again I dont give shit about you...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Manni, I think you just put the most "shit" ever in a post! Well done!  Big thumbs up

Again, you confuse hatred with disagreement. I don't agree with what you stand for, Manni-or at least what you say you stand for. It's alien to me. But hatred? Maybe you should look in the mirror, paisan.
