Swami Predicts Osama Capture at Critical Juncture
    #3053801 - 08/26/04 04:12 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

This will be the final rabbit-out-of the-hat trick for Bush to attempt to cinch the election.

If he catches him (legitimately or not) this close to the election people will view it as a trick and it would backfire. I'm willing to bet the Bush team knows this as well.

If they had OBL today they would tell us as soon as they could confirm it. The sooner we get him the better for everyone involved.

If it ever got out that Bush had OBL all along but used him as an re-election pawn, the scandal would reach Watergate proportion. Not only would there be a serious abuse of the political process, but it would be the ultimate exploitation of the September 11th attacks.

No need to capture him early, just isolate him in a remote locale, then send the troops in at the "right" time.

I don't think it would be that simple. They couldn't just walk in there an take him, they would have to fight through several hundred militants, all of whom would be holding back U.S. troops while OBL and his inner circle move around to another local. They lost him in Tora Bora because they were afraid of too many U.S. deaths - instead they opted to let the Afghans do it, many of which who don't relate to the grievances of 9/11 the way Westerners do. Heck, Osama might not even be in the mountains, he could be in the basement of a safehouse in Peshawar; unlikely though, since wherever OBL goes, hundreds of jihadis protecting him follow.

Thought I saw him at a cineplex watching Farenheit 9/11 and drinking a Coke.

People have been predicting that for months.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Don't be so sure.

If we catch the boogie man, voters may be more willing to take a chance on Kerry.

Methinks you underestimate the gullibility of the average voter.

No. Quite the opposite actually. I think if he is found it will be legitimate (not a re-election ploy), but the issue will get spun so badly by Kerry's camp that people will start to believe in a conspiracy that does not exist.

Most people don't want to believe their government is capable of something like that. If Kerry accused him of that, he would see a major drop in the polls. Endorsing conspiracy theories is not politically advantageous for a politician.
