The Talking Dog

May 2, 2005, Whatever happened to...

Henry Schuster gives us this CNN column entitled "Where's Osama?" The simple answer for OBL's reticence the last few months could have several explanations. One suggestion is that Al Qaeda hasn't had any thing it can point to as a 'success" in the last few months. Another is he simply has nothing to say. Schuster opines in general that the no news might be good news.

As this compendium from a case brought to trial in 2001 in new York entitled United States v. Osama bin Laden, nothing could be further from the truth. Al Qaeda is.. get this... patient. It takes years and years, works through multiple simultaneous plans, and moves its important people around on fake identity documents.

The schmucks who will sacrifice themselves for the cause-- they use their own names. Legitimate businesses intertwined with the terrorist organization, a loose configuration, and the best intelligence we had provided via the much maligned law enforcement mechanism.

In short: no one can ever be sure what OBL or the AQ bastards are up to at any given moment. The only thing we know for certain is how remarkably little we know... other than just how useful a bogeyman OBL is for the current American government (and, possibly, the UK government... though we'll see later this week...) to have out there. Comforting, no?


And then there's that crazy over in N. Korea who may very well be capable of tossing a nuke tipped obsolete yet effective Soviet ICBM into my backyard. Anybody out here on the left coast terrorized yet?

Oh, I'm oh so sorry to have brought up something that just MIGHT BE A LITTLE MORE IMPORTANT THAN Micael Jackson: pediphile.

I apologize for going here, but Fuck Iraq. Fuck the Middle East. Fuck Oil. Fuck Israel.

Fuck Bush.

Thoughts on the UK election. This might be a win-win situation for Republicans.

I like Tony Blair. I think he's good friend to the US and an extraordinarily trustworthy ally. If Blair wins, it will be seen here as a public validation of the decision to liberate Iraq, whether or not the British view it that way themselves. And if he loses, the Tories will be back in power and the boys over at the National Review will be all atwitter at the thought of a new conservative age dawning on the Isle, even if it bears little resemblence to Thatcher.
