This morning on NPR http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=6352046 I heard the political correspondents discussing how the Republicans were going to start airing an ad on Sunday showing Osama bin Laden with his quotes about wanting to destroy the US. I do not understand how this is beneficial to the Repubs. For 5 years, this guy (who did, in fact, have something to do with 9/11/01) has been on the loose and we invade Iraq instead of putting all of our resources towards capturing him. This is a reason why the Democrats can't "keep America safe?" It just astounds me every time ObL is invoked that no one (especially the journalists) says "Hey, you've had 5 years to strategize and decide how to capture him and instead you've been busily invading Iraq and creating a civil war there and completely destabilizing the Middle East." I couldn’t believe Mara Liason didn't bring it up. What the hell am I missing? Do people really buy this bullshit?
