Bin Laden search frustrates officials

You think you're frustrated? Nothing kills your faith in your country than having a guy who plotted and financed the most lethal attack on US soil hiding successfully from the entire fucking world.

Senior U.S. intelligence officials yesterday defended unsuccessful efforts to capture al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden who they say has eluded a global manhunt for years by hiding in tribal areas of Pakistan under the protection of local leaders.

What makes it worse? We know where he is. We fucking know he's in the Pakistani tribal belt and we still can't get him. Sad.

"We share your frustration," Thomas Fingar, deputy director of national intelligence, told Congress yesterday. "Being No. 3 in al Qaeda is a bad job. We regularly get to the No. 3 person."

That's the equivalent of arrested the getaway driver after a bank robbery.

But capturing or killing bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, has been difficult because their security practices are "very good" and they are hiding in an area "that is more hostile to us than it is to al Qaeda," Mr. Fingar told the House Armed Services Committee.

At this point isn't most the world more hostile to the US than to al-qaeda. I don't know if you guys are keeping score here.
