Bin Laden to enter Iraq during Ramadan, says Iranian report
The real question is, will anyone get a picture of Bin Laden and Al-Zarqawi in the same room? Kind of like Clark Kent and Superman...

TERRORISM: BIN LADEN TO ENTER IRAQ DURING RAMADAN, SAYS IRANIAN REPORT

Tehran, 8 August (AKI) - US troops in Iraq have seized documents that suggest fugitive al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden is planning to enter Iraq during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, an Iranian news agency reported on Monday. Bin Laden's visit to Iraq during Ramadan, which this year begins in early October, would be part of an al-Qaeda attempt to further destabilise the war-ravaged country, and to lead a coup attempt against the government in Baghdad, the Mehr news agency said.

Citing a spokesman from the Shiite grouping, the Hezbollah of Iraq, the report said that Americans soldiers found documents, apparently meant for internal use by an Iraqi al-Qaeda linked group, the Mujahadeen of the Land of Rafedin, mentioning the al-Qaeda leaders planned visit.

1. You know, if pResident Dimbulb and his administration could just get
ahold of the travel agency bin Ladin uses, then they'd know how to get in touch with the guy.

Oh yeah, I forgot. bush** can just call the family directly. They're old acquaintances.

3. So, if the US military attempts to 'crack down' on Ramadan travel
...'travel' being sort of a euphemism in Iraq for ducking and dodging while moving at high speed. In any case, if the US attempts to start several new military offensives and 'lock down' more than it has in Iraq while everyone is trying to celebrate Ramadan (and go to holy sites, etc...), that's going to piss moderate Iraqis off even more, isn't it? (further radicalizing them about their religion).

So just leaking this message out there would be a pretty cheap way for Shiite fundamentalists to make more political hay in Iraq, I'd say -- whether it's true or not.

On the face of it, it seems unlikly to be true: Bin Laden working with Shiite fundamentalists? Has bin Laden suddenly become tolerant of those he previously called heretics? (Shia).

7. pretty bad sign of how we're doing...
...in Iraq when OBL can come and go as he pleases. Oh but we're doing great over there... great to see that years of war on terror still has brought us nothing.

13. Why do they report such "news", Bush* says Bin Laden is irrevelent
He does not even think about Bin Laden he says. He is no longer important to America. At least according to Bush*.

16. Who cares where bin Laden is?
Certainly not anyone in leadership positions in the U.S. government. At least I have never been given the impression that they give a damn where he is. But they definitely appreciate reports like these that make it seem like they do.

18. How does the Iranian press know where OBL is?
Did Pakistan send a press release?

Okay, be on the lookout for a really tall guy trailing a dialysis machine . . . may be in the company of an eight- or no legged- guy with a bunch of laptops . . .

23. Damn, I guess OBL will have to change his plans now!!!
Holy fucking shit folks, are we truly supposed to believe this total pile of bullshit?

They release information like this to the public????

What do you think they were doing? Hmmm, let's release this info, so that OBL either knows we listen to his phone calls, or hopefully will change is travel plans...WTF??????

This just totally boggles the mind. A rational agent in the US would say, hey, let's keep this to ourselves and see if we can catch him huh? Now there is a fucking plan, you total fucking losers!!!

No, they release it to the whole fucking world!!! One more god damn thing that shows to me that they don't want to catch him. As long as he's out there, he's the fucking poster child for every stupid fucking boogie man in anyones closet.

I just get so fucking pissed off at the supreme level of object stupidity that is continually displayed by this administration and it's fucking brain dead lunatic wanna-be man-child moron*!!

30. You know
OBL could arrive in the Green Zone during Ramadan on a pink camel in broad daylight with the Chimp riding along with him playing Highway to Hell on a ukelele...

and the Freepers wouldn't bat an eyelash.
