Stone Cold

Let's also take the time today to note that not only have we not gotten Bin Laden, we are not even a little bit close:

The clandestine U.S. commandos whose job is to capture or kill Osama bin Laden have not received a credible lead in more than two years. Nothing from the vast U.S. intelligence world -- no tips from informants, no snippets from electronic intercepts, no points on any satellite image -- has led them anywhere near the al-Qaeda leader, according to U.S. and Pakistani officials.

There are reports that Bush's team disbanded the CIA group that was responsible for looking for Bin Laden. I guess this was because our ex-CEO-in-Chief decided to stop throwing good money away at a futile effort.

However, leave it to Congress to find a better way. Some Repubs have introduced a bill to reband the group and give it new funding.
