Monday Check Of The Osama Clock

If it's Monday, it's time to check the
Yellow Dog Blog's Osama clock.

It's now been 1,442 days since George W. Bush (The Resolute One) said that he would get Osama Bin Laden dead or alive.

And there was the president again last week, speaking to military families in Idaho and sounding so tough I got chills up and down my spine. "And we're determined, and we're relentless, and we will stay on the hunt until the terrorists have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide," said the president to wild applause.

But on September 13, 2001, Mr. Bush said this:
"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him"
Then, six months later, on March 13, 2002, the president changed his mind:
"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
So, I say this on August 29, 2005: Don't make threats you're not truly committed to carrying out.

And, as we ask every Monday... Mr. Bush: Where's Osama?
