Bush shut down CIA's "Osama bin Laden" unit a year ago

(UPDATE: posted this last night, but we're bumping it up. It's an article that says a lot...because Bush is out talking tough on terror today. But once again, his actions speak louder than words. And in case there was any question, it seems Osama is still alive.)

Mexican seeking a better life in America? No amnesty.

Biggest mass murderer in US history? Amnesty.

Any questions?

Nice. So Bush gave up on hunting Osama a year ago and never told us. Real nice. And spare us the "they're still hunting for him" bs. They're not hunting for him if they disbanded the special unit that's been hunting for him for ten years. And by the way, that means it was Bill Clinton who decided way before September 11 that we needed to get bin Laden, and it was George Bush who gave up the fight.

From the NYT:

Michael Scheuer, a former senior C.I.A. official who was the first head of the unit, said the move reflected a view within the agency that Mr. bin Laden was no longer the threat he once was.

Mr. Scheuer said that view was mistaken.

"This will clearly denigrate our operations against Al Qaeda," he said.
Happy Independence Day everyone, our president just screwed the memory of 3,000 dead Americans.
