user posted imageA BRITISH Sunday newspaper is claiming Osama bin Laden has been found and is surrounded by US special forces in an area of land bordering north-west Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Sunday Express, known for its sometimes colourful scoops, claims the al-Qaeda leader has been "sighted" for the first time since 2001 and is being monitored by satellite. The paper claims he is in a mountainous area to the north of the Pakistani city of Quetta. The region is said to be peopled with bin Laden supporters and the terrorist leader is estimated to also have 50 of his fanatical bodyguards with him. The claim is attributed to "a well-placed intelligence source" in Washington, who is quoted as saying: "He (bin Laden) is boxed in." The paper says the hostile terrain makes an all-out conventional military assault impossible. The plan to capture him would depend on a "grab-him-and-go" style operation. "US helicopters already sited on the Afghanistan border will swoop in to extricate him," the newspaper says. It claims bin Laden and his men "sleep in caves or out in the open.

The area is swept by fierce snow storms howling down from the 10,000ft-high mountain peaks. Donkeys are the only transport."

i heard this story 2 days ago and they still havn't got him.


Pretty convient since the election is coming up. Bush gets his approval rating up a bit by saying this, since we havn't heard anything from Afghanistan in awhile, and once his rating is up enought he'll say we missed him by 5hrs. His rating will stay up since it looks like they are making progress in Afghanistan..........


.......Or they might just catch him in the next few days.

all I can say is THANK GOD that Clinton is not in office.. can you imagine what kind of a mess this country would be in if he was!

He would be too busy playing with interns and smoking cigars.... (among other things with cigars)!!!  whistling2.gif  

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

Better education

Better social services

Smaller Gap between the Rich and Poor

Better health Care

Far Lower National Debt

Far stronger Economy (avoided recession which the current administration hasnt been quite as successful at)

Why do u hate clinton so much?

From an outsider lookin in he left your country in a pretty decent state.

He did exactly what I wanted him to do... he was impeached!

He had no backbone... I don't even want to think about what would have happened if he had been in office when 9/11 happened!

Saddam would still be running loose and would still be in control of Iraq!

he got two terms so most of america dont agree with you.

You still never answered my question what else did you want from a president. Personal hatred aside how can you say he was a bad president.

You cant judge him on events that hadnt happened yet either.

I don't believe in anything that a Democrat stands for!

I am a die hard Republican and my view are 100% Republican.

I don't believe in abortion, gun control, gay marriage rights... just to name a few.

Lower unemployment

DUE to Reganomics.

Lower taxes

THAT was implemented George Bush in 88-92 administation.

Better education

Like that helped. AGAIN RAISED TAXES.

Better social services

AGAIN a DEMOCRAT thing. RAISED TAXES so I pay for someone to stay home and not work.

Smaller Gap between the Rich and Poor

AGAIN RAISING TAXES ON THE MIDDLE CLASS.

Better health Care

MORE TAXES I have to pay for these moochers that are on welfare.

Far Lower National Debt

AGAIN was started by RONALD REGAN and REGANOMICS

Far stronger Economy (avoided recession which the current administration hasnt been quite as successful at)

WAS started by RONALD REGAN in 1984-88 administration

Why do we hate clinton so much? THATS WHY.

From an outsider... you dont know what you are talking about.
CLINTON and GORE like to take credit for things THEY DIDNT START.
