Reward increased for Bin Laden - dead or alive
http://feeds.bignewsnetwork.com/?sid=264865

The U.S Senate has voted to double the reward for the capture or death of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden to US$50 million.

The 87-1 came amid warnings that al-Qaeda is trying to infiltrate the United States with its own agents and is rebuilding training camps.

Senator Kent Conrad said it was unfathomable that Bin Laden should be alive, well and continuing to pose a serious threat to the U.S.

He said it was long past time for Bin Laden to be brought to justice.

1. Congress is SO crazy and out of touch!
I'm amazed that Congress really can get it together and pass
a reward or a pay raise for themselves without any difficulty
or divisiveness.

Only, who cares! This legislative body is so out of touch with
the American people it's unreal. It's as though the people are
living on one planet and Congress on another.. completely
different universes really. Life is so bizarre.

3. I wonder how the CIA will hide him?
And what makes the congress think that finding him and bringing him to trial will accomplish anything?

5. Isn't he the guy that Bush doesn't spend much time thinking about?

Isn't he the guy that isn't even wanted by the FBI for 9/11?

No, I must be mistaken.

7. OK, odd question from a Canadian.
Does anyone find this almost surreal? The president of the United States has, almost single-handedly, destroyed the international nuclear arms treaties and re-started the arms race (Putin has unilaterally withdrawn because of Bush's decision to install missile defence installations on Russia's border), and the Senate is still concerned with a threat the US mostly manufactured?

What????

8. Let me explain you lucky Canadian that our government is
in shambles right now and can you feel the desperation here

they need to invoke Presidential Directive 51
and
get that WWIII going

The Boogeyman has come out for good reason

THEY are FAILING and they need Osama to bail them out

I just don't know if Americans are going to tolerate that this government flew Arabs(Bin Laudins) out right after 911
and that after 6 years we still have not caught the boogeyman

11. Don't get ahead of yourself.

We can't POSSIBLY pencil an arms race in with Russia until sometime in 2009, maybe 2010.

We have Iran, Syria, North Korea, Venezuela, and others in line ahead of Russia.


Ok, to be even more serious, those are all foreign countries, and since the news doesn't tell the average American about them, they don't really care about it. The news has to keep the people freaked about about dark skinned aggressors from the middle east and Mexico.


Ok, that wasn't serious either, just depressingly realistic.

There is a reason that I am learning Russian. The middle east, China, India, all temporary issues. Russia is king. They know it too.

10. He'll be captured soon.
They need Bush's poll numbers to be higher than 26%.
