Bin Laden, Bin Laden, been lyin'
How do you know that the U.S. and Pakistan have captured Osama bin Laden? The Pentagon denies it.
State radio in Iran reported that he was captured long ago but announcement of the capture was being withheld by President Bush until closer to he November election. Say it isn't so, George. The exact quote as reported by AP:
"Osama bin Laden has been arrested a long time ago, but Bush is intending to use it for propaganda maneuvering in the presidential election."
Recall Tim Russert's "Meet the Press" interview with Bush. The only time W. seemed alive and well was in responding to Russert: "Senator Hagel is convinced you will capture Osama bin Laden before November." Bush sat up straight, uttered his famous giggle, and said he admired the Senator's optimism. Like a third grade kid trying to keep a secret, Bush gave it away.
It won't work. Too contrived, too much time for the truth to come out, and, if the past is prologue someone in Tony Blair's government will leak the truth.
