Seven years after Sept. 11, 2001, in spite of President Bush's vows, the mastermind of the deadliest terrorist attacks on American soil, Osama bin Laden, is still at large and leading a resurgent al Qaeda.
Since that day, al Qaeda has struck in Madrid, London, Bali, and Casablanca, reports CBS News correspondent Sheila MacVicar. The group has claimed more than a dozen terror attacks around the world and many hundreds more in Iraq and Afghanistan, leaving thousands of dead and wounded. "These attacks are stark reminders that the threat of terrorism is real and still a danger to the entire world," said Maj. Gen. Robert Cone, the U.S. military commander in Afghanistan.
Thursday morning at Camp Eggers, near Kabul, Afghanistan, U.S. soldiers closest to the hunt for bin Laden remembered the people killed seven years ago in Washington and New York. The last time the U.S. knew for certain bin Laden's whereabouts, he was leading the battle at Tora Bora. He slipped away, into the mountains along the border shared by Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Anyone who believes that Dubya's war in Iraq is making us safer is an idiot. The REAL villain is somewhere along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border - or at least that's our best guess. To be honest, the Bush administration is so fucking incompetent that they don't even know where Osama Bin Laden is!
Is this what you want (at least) four more years of, America? The man who planned 9/11 continues to walk free, while your troops are getting blown up by IEDs in a country where we know Osama ain't?
Then go ahead and vote for McCain.
