Nice Speech, Bush. Where's Osama?

Remember this guy, President Bush?

Bush just finished his spin-speech on Iraq.

For dramatic effect, the president started a series of sentences with "to complete the mission..." What was telling was that there was no mention of capturing Osama Bin Laden and the rest of the Al Qaeda henchmen.

You remember them don't you, Mr. Bush? They were the people who actually attacked us on September 11. No matter how much you try to link the insurgency in Iraq with 9/11 – as you did again tonight – the facts show that Iraq had nothing to do with that horrible day.

You said this at a news conference in March of 2002 when asked why Osama Bin Laden seemed to have fallen off your radar:

"So I don't know where he is. You know, I just don't spend that much time on him to be honest with you. . . . I truly am not that concerned about him."
You talked tonight of "confronting evil." Please give us another speech when you're actually ready to start doing that.
