Army on Osama: We Give Up
I'm sure the folks in Yurp are glad this guy is going to be in charge of that tiny and unimportant organization called "NATO."
The United States believes Osama bin Laden is still alive, but intelligence on the Al-Qaeda mastermind has gone "cold," the former commander of US forces in Afghanistan said.
"Our working assumption is that Osama bin Laden is alive," Lieutenant General Karl Eikenberry told CNN's "Late Edition."
But asked whether he knew where bin Laden was located, Eikenberry said: "The intelligence has gone cold on Osama bin Laden."
"The search for Bin Laden will continue because this man has committed mass crimes and atrocities against the American people," he said.
"Our military will not rest until that man is found, captured or killed," said Eikenberry, who recently left his post and has been nominated for the position of deputy chairman of NATO military committee in Brussels.
Eikenberry, who was commander in Afghanistan for 21 months, declined to say whether the search for bin Laden's right-hand man, Ayman al-Zawahiri, had also gone cold.
How many trillions have been spent on the World's Greatest military and intelligence machine, and we can't find one guy tied to a dialysis machine? OK, I've heard he's no longer tied to a machine, but still- how bad are our intel ops and how did they get that way?
INCOMPETENCE. The hallmark of the Bush administration, in every possible way. AFP.
