1. You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to liquor.

2. You own a $3,000 machine gun and $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can't afford shoes.

3. You have more wives than teeth.

4. You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon "unclean."

5. You think vests come in two styles: bullet-proof and suicide.

6. You can't think of anyone you haven't declared Jihad against.

7. You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry explosives in your clothing.

8. You were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses other than setting off roadside bombs.

9. You have nothing against women and think every man should own at least four.

10. You've always had a crush on your neighbor's goat.

11. Your cousin is president of the United States

You'd think that a group of folks who are so "offended" by all things fun would find Gitmo to be a great place to "get away from it all".

Now, there is at least one truly compelling reason to believe this: he clearly had experience putting this sort of operation together, and that alone sends his name near the top of the list.

Meanwhile, it is just extremely difficult to comprehend why, when his handover by the Afghan government could have been a foregone conclusion, we didn't just make it happen. All we had to do was follow normal extradition protocols and he'd be in custody (or more likely, dead) right now.

cool....now we have common ground of sorts...i think he impletmentd it, but we can go tit for tat at another point. as far as the extradition..and i am just guessing...there was a belief (which im sure can be supported, if i decided to search, or if all intel was realeased) that there was no way i hell, the T-ban were going to go for it. almost 3,000 people had just died (freak out in the streets, DOD, intel dept, oval office, etc), and we had missed too many oppertunites to get him. through in the background of the concept it would also meet our interests for a show of force, get rid of a unstable terrorist supporting regime, in the middle of an anti-us, democrat hot bed...thought i would be rather easy to topple, and stabilize....etc. now we can go back and forth if that was the "right" thing to do....i do (to a point).

Now as far as all of that Tora Bora nonsense, and CIA cover-ups, etc.... whatever. I've gone out of my way to scold 9/11 conspiracy theorists, and will continue to do so. I do find it fascinating to compare the Pearl Harbor investigations with the 9/11 reports. Not the government complicity/conspiracy/cover-up angle, mind you, but the total melt-down, breakdown failures of the government to do even its most basic jobs. The more things change...
this, additionally is also good to hear from you ric..(i do apologize for the conspiratorial accusations, most of your posts, til, then, had that feel, so i was trying to cut if off at the head)......but i think this part is your best post as to eluding to how you think. i alos know of the intel let downs of Pear (see Tora, Tora, Tora, for an idea), and the intel lapses pre-9/11 also led up to history repeating....which, i think, really lead us to now. the failures of the past have led to the actions of the future/present. we can go down the road of overeaction, bad moves, bad decisions, should have done this differently, which we should. im just tired of the blame game, and want to avoid past problems in the present.

And we should leave them alone to get nukes?
It's interesting that you should bring up Germany's influence. And where did Israel's leadership learn to do what they do?
