    The Belmont Club responds to Bin Laden


    Well, Bin Laden looks like he is still alive. Lots of us were wrong, and have to eat crow now. The clips I've see looked to me like he was sitting while trying to give the impression that he was standing. He looked old. I'm sure the whole media is going to buzz about this, from whether Bush screwed up at Tora Bora to how closely his speech sounds like Kerry's talking points and Michael Moore's college speeches.

    The Belmont Club posted a good bit of the transcript and a comment at the end. The fact that he is trying to influence our election with only a videotape tells me that he doesn't have quite the tactical ability he had over 3 years ago. It's also important to remember that it took 7 years to track down Eric Rudolph(remember him?) and he was hiding in *this* country. I'm confident that we'll get him eventually, and now I'm even more confident he can't do much except hobble from cave to cave planning his next videotape.

    Update: The Truth Laid Bear has a good point which he calls "The Batman Effect" and also runs down commentary by the top bloggers.

    Bush did not get Bin Laden.

    He had 3 years and 3000 reasons

    See next post...

    Clinton didn't get Bin Laden either. He had 8 years, and as many reasons as Bush.

    Cheers,

    For Free:

    We are living for free;
    The air is for free,
    The clouds are for free.
    Hills and dales are for free;
    Rain and mud are for free;
    The outside of cars,
    The entrance to movie houses,
    The store windows are for free;
    It is not the same as bread and cheese,
    But salt water is for free;
    Freedom will cost you your life,
    But slavery is for free;
    We are living for free,
    For free.
