Here are a couple of things that cross my mind....
1. Is the tape Genuine?
All indicators are it is, but I wouldn't put it past our Government to make a fake, or knowingly authenticate a fake made elsewhere.
2. Is that really BinLaden or a double?
If it is, this guy is no less than I expected, He's an homicidal maniac using religion as a front to kill people.
(That has been the best way to kill people down through history, why not use what works...)
It's been said by the CIA he has at least 6 doubles.
3. Timing of the release of the tape.
According to the Government, this tape has been in their possession for over 6 weeks.
Verification by the CIA only took 4 days...
Why wait until now to release it?
(Answer: Because the approval of George W. was down to 60%, and this will prop him up again.)
4. Where is BinLaden now? (Or... The 50 Million Dollar Question!)
I noticed that many of the SEAL team and Ranger Team guys weren't at the Machine Gun Shoot this year...
VERY conspicuously missing...
Think they are trying to collect on some of the $500 Million in rewards on BinLaden and his friends?....
Inquiring minds want to know!
Why in the Hell did they release the entire tape?
There was a lot of sensitive information on that tape. A lot of how the terrorist cells operate, command and control information that the general public doesn't understand, and didn't need to know.
Now it's quite likely that they will change the command and control structure sense this tape made it public information.
Makes the Intelligence community's job a lot harder, and may give information on command and control structure to less organized terrorist groups, both foreign and domestic...
Personally, I'd like to see him in a cell, fed pork three times a day, and have a 24 hour web cam in his cell so we can all see him rot away a little at a time for the rest of his life.
It's a hell of a lot cheaper for the tax payers, and a damn site more entertaining than just killing the freak...
If the special forces guys get him, What ever one pulls the trigger should have his kids sent to Harvard, all expenses paid for what ever they want to do...
I don't think our special forces teams should be exempt from that 25 Million reward... Just don't shoot him in the face, I want to see his head on a stick if we can't put him in a cell for the rest of time...
So many cats, so few recipes...
