I get what you mean, now. Because Bush never brings up his mistakes, it’s not in Bush’s speeches. Thus, illogically, OBL and MM have the same script writer, because they both know that Bush’s mistake was a serious one?
According to OBL, he implied that there was so much coordination that the extra time Bush gave the child’s story wasn’t important. But it does give us the hint that Bin Laden watches the news.
We also know that Michael Moore watches the news, so the odd man out is Bush. Michael Moore and Bin Laden both watch the news, so they’re in the same boat, I just wonder where the candlestick maker is. Bush said in September, 2003, “I glance at the headlines just to kind of get a flavor for what’s moving. I rarely read the stories, and get briefed by people who are … probably read the news themselves.”

When they left [Bin Laden] there with all [the CIA] job training (recruiter and payroller for US taught “terrorist universities” in Iraq), what did they expect him to do?[/quote]
My position: In hindsight, US policy in Iraq in the 1980s was not the wisest policy. It was more of a rhetorical question.
I don’t know if you could call Bush a wise man, Aug. 6, 2003: “We’ve got a year-and-a-while during my first term to make the world a more peaceful place and we’ll deal with it. Washington loves speculation. Clearly, you love speculation. You love it. You love to speculate about… Let me finish, please, let me finish. You love to speculate about whether so-and-so is going to be a part of the administration or not. And I understand the game. But I have got to do my job, and I’m going to do it. And I’m going to do it with the Secretary of State.”
