Musharraf blames U.S. for failing to capture bin Laden
WASHINGTON (AFP)

Asked why Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has not been found yet in the tribal region along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border where he is believed to be hiding, Musharraf shot back, saying it was not Pakistan's business.

"I would like to ask the United States why he hasn't been found. They have ... more intelligence capability. I would like to ask the United States why (Taliban leader) Mullah Omar has not been found."

Musharraf, however, admitted that there were "sanctuaries" in Pakistan for Al-Qaeda, which combined with the remote, mountainous terrain "makes the task difficult" of finding the militants.

We've found umpteen #2's, but I guess we killed them all before we could torture them.

"The Death of bin Ladenism
By AMIR TAHERI
Published: July 11, 2002

Osama bin Laden is dead. The news first came from sources in Afghanistan and Pakistan almost six months ago: the fugitive died in December and was buried in the mountains of southeast Afghanistan. Pakistan's president, Pervez Musharraf, echoed the information. The remnants of Osama's gang, however, have mostly stayed silent, either to keep Osama's ghost alive or because they have no means of communication."

What's the story, Mushy? Is he dead or not? Did the American media misquote you, or flat out lie? Fill us in, Mushy.....

He knows a great deal more than these few lines he offered, though.

10. Because only John McCain can capture Bin Laden
and he won't tell us how unless he's president. :sarcasm:
