What happened to Bin Laden?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Question, how many mentions of Bin Laden were made during the RNC?

bun Laden?
I don't recall any...but if you watched the Daily Show the other night...Jon Stewart did a hilarious piece by stitching together many of the "September 11" checks by a number of RNC speakers.

None that I recall. Closest Bush came was when he said that 3/4 of al-Qaeda's leaders had been "detained or killed".

He didn't dwell on the capture of Hussein, either - don't think he directly mentioned it. Maybe there was a theme of the WOT not being about individual men. But then he mentioned SH as being a personal threat plenty of times (who said "SH is himself a weapon of mass destruction"?).

Random thought: That was a funny choice of words, "detained". Like the police picked them up off the golf course for a little questioning. I wondered if he was advised not to use the obvious alternative, "captured", for any POW implication that word has. But he could have just gone with the manly "no longer a threat to us" line.[/random]

I thought that was hilarious when Bush went to great lengths to avoid mentioning Osama. See, the show continues and they're hoping the American people as "distracted"( not the "d" word I wanted to use)as they are will forget the:

1- weapons of mass destruction
2- weapons of mass destruction programs
3- weapons of mass destruction related programs
4- weapons of mass destruction related program activities

which is what the Bush admin. would repeat and repeat over and over until it became their mantra.....

Are we closer to getting Osama bin Laden? Yes, Joseph Cofer Black, the US State Department co-ordinator for counter-terrorism, was quoted as saying by Dawn and The Nation, two English-language dailies.

Black, who briefed a group of Pakistani journalists after talks with officials yesterday, said he could not predict exactly when bin Laden and other top al-Qaida fugitives would be apprehended.

It could happen tomorrow, could happen a day after, a week from now, or a month from now. The thing is everything is in place. A little bit is needed to localise these people and to catch them, he was reported as saying.

Close to being captured?

Wow MarcUK I know are you as weirded out as I am!?

Common Man why would Bush do that? That is dishonest. That is not what Jesus would do! God talks to Bush every morning so I don't think He would like that either. You better tell God about this right now young man!

Hey, let's mock Christianity! Gee, the left would NEVER mock someone's faith in God.

BTW, what about this link?

The poster isn't mocking Christianity at all. He's mocking Common Man by pointing out that this is a dishonest and an unChristian thing to do.

Why not? Some from the right twist christianity into an excuse for their own ends.

That's a mockery in itself.
