Color Me Cynical

Okay, so we've nabbed 10,340 American criminals in a major operation, including one hiding in "a cave", but we still can't smoke out Osama bin Laden?

Well, duh? He's *hiding*!!!

How could any rational person expect Bush or Rumsfeld to anticipate a diabolical move like that? I mean, it's not like *they* would ever... do.... something..... like.........

Nevermind.

Well, this must mean Ashcroft was doing a really shi-- bad job, eh?

I still can't forgive Gonzales for arguing in support of torture in self-admittedly outlaw gulags.

Absolut power and all that...

I wonder how many of these arrests will kinda sorta ... you know... fall apart and the people will be dusted off and released.. quietly.. so's we don't disturb Adolf Gonzales' triumphant smirk.

Arrests like these have been happening a lot recently.

The Marshal's Service picks up between 60K and 70K fugitives a year, half with local participation and half without.

They gave the Service the resources to make these raids all at once in one week and they managed to pick up 10K bad guys, 80% of whom are D-list fugitives that haven't been worth the trouble.

The A-list were being actively pursued, but it wasn't cost effective to go after these other people because there was no money for the extradition and travel expenses.

Would you like to hear my screed about picking up fugitives and having to release them because the jurisdiction that issued the warrant couldn't afford to come get them.

We can't *find* him because he's really staying in the Lincoln bedroom at the WH.

Why would I want to waste perfectly good herb on him?

And anyway, if we catch Osama we'd have half the population thinking that the WARONTERRA was done and we could all go home. Keeping Osama free keeps Bush'n'Co free to do what they want. This is the freedoms that Dubya is always talking about.

Indeed. He is the Emmanuel Goldstein to Bush's Big Brother.
