If the United States of America is serious about finding Osama bin Laden, it sure as hell has a funny way of showing it.
Eight years after allegedly masterminding the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, bin Laden is reportedly still hiding out in a cave somewhere in the border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan. And yeah, the second part of that theory is beginning to strain credulity in our book.
Don’t get us wrong – bin Laden is obviously one of the most skillful (and PR-savvy) asymmetrical warriors in modern history, but we refuse to believe that this is where America is after nearly a decade of “hunting” him.
Seriously, people … we live in an age of frighteningly advanced technology and no one has access to the latest “search and destroy” gadgetry quite like the U.S. military-industrial complex.
So WTF gives? Why hasn’t this cockroach been flushed out and squashed by the boot of American vengeance?
“You are waging a hopeless and losing war for the benefit of others, a war the end of which is not visible on the horizon,” Osama tells U.S. President Barack Obama in his latest audio message.
Bin Laden then calls Obama “powerless” in the war on terror(ism).
Kind of hard to argue that point, isn’t it?
