Al Qaeda Leadership to be Captured During Dem Convention?
The New Republic thinks that this is the plan. According to the article the Bush Administration is pressuring the Pakistani government to capture or kill bin Laden, Ayman Al Zawahiri, and/or Mullah Mohammed Omar by the election. Not just that, the Bushies would prefer that these targets be captured during the Democratic convention at the end of this month. The entire story could very well be crap-o-la. The Bushies are using the Carrot, military equipment and a five-year, $3 billion aid package, and the Stick. Here's my favorite quote:
One Pakistani general recently in Washington confided in a journalist, "If we don't find these guys by the election, they are going to stick this whole nuclear mess up our asshole."I don't give a damn what motivates the Administration or the Pakistanis to capture or kill these guys. Just freaking do it.
