  • Getting Closer To Bin Laden

    NEWSWEEK: U.S. Military, Intelligence Officials Are Confident They Are Narrowing bin Laden's Whereabouts; Human Intel Is Key to Search

    Using powerful software called Analyst's Notebook that helps to piece together data on criminal and terrornetworks, U.S. military and intelligence officials are increasingly confident they are narrowing Osama bin Laden's whereabouts, Newsweek reports in the March 15 issue (on newsstands Monday, March 8). Key to the search is "accumulated humint," or human intelligence, says one insider. Other officials tell Newsweek that an increasing number of "data points" -- reports
    of sightings -- have created an ever-clearer picture of bin Laden's area of
    operation as he appears to shuttle between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Now
    they've focused that picture to the point where they have been able to send in
    Predator unmanned aerial vehicles to search for him.

    The man charged with finding bin Laden is former Navy SEAL and current
    rear admiral William H. McRaven, Newsweek has learned. He's heading up Task
    Force 121, a covert, miniature strike force with a command structure so
    secretive that McRaven's role hasn't even been reported until now.

    "So secretive up till now."

    I hate Newsweek and Time. If they started to do actual journalism and opinions, then they may actually be worth reading.

    But the whole People magazine treatment of world events makes me reach for my shredder...
    The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life. -TR

      Wow, how's that for an assignment?

      "Good morning Admiral. We've got a little task we'd like you to handle."

      I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this guy just may get a phone call from every publisher in the land if/when Bin Laden is caught.

        It's going to be a great day when we locate him and fire a missile up his ass.

          That better be televised. I can't think of better reality TV.

                I hope they don't put a missle up his ass. I hope they capture him and then we'll see just how ready to die for his cause he really is.

                Of course, I was also the one who advocated rebuilding the WTC exactly the same, with the exception of a 200-foot tall impaling spike on the top of each one, one for Osama and one for Mullah Omar. They never listen to me... B)

                  I would pay up to 99.99 for a PPV torture/execution of that motherfucker.

                        I don't know, how much would it suck to have to choose to jump 106 stories to your death rather than burn in a fire when some terrorist crashes an airliner into your building?
