If the unelectable is Going to Win, We Must Catch the precious
Four days after Saddam Hussein's capture, the White House vowed Tuesday to find another most-wanted fugitive -terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

We're continuing to pursue other leaders within that al Qaeda terrorist network, including Osama bin Laden. I think he can fully expect that he will be brought to justice by this administration," White House spokesman Scott McClellan said.

In a CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll taken this month, 50 percent of Americans said they would not consider the war in Afghanistan or the fight against terrorism to be successful unless bin Laden is captured.
In recent months, Taliban and al Qaeda rebels have been increasingly bold in their assaults, raiding police stations, killing aid workers and confronting U.S. troops in growing numbers.

Many of the attacks have taken place in the south and east, near the border with Pakistan.

Afghan and Western officials have long complained that the insurgents have found haven in Pakistan, crossing the border to launch attacks.

"Operation Avalanche," involving between 2,000 and 11,500 troops, began two weeks ago and is the largest ground operation yet in Afghanistan, a military spokesman said.

Coalition intelligence sources say there are persistent reports that Taliban leader Mullah
Mohammed Omar is in western Afghanistan, particularly in the Kandahar region, once a stronghold of the Taliban.
The pResident say, "There's a time for politics ..." The question is, was there ever a time in this administration that was anything but politics? Operation Avalanche? Guess that they're into recycling operation names as well as administrations. Either that or al Queda is one nasty child porn ring.
