PRESIDENT BUSH GETS IT: Check out this quotation from today's presidential press conference:
Bush played down the importance of the United States capturing or killing Osama bin Laden, suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks. "Deep in my heart I know the man's on the run - if he's alive at all. Who knows if he's hiding in some cave or not? We haven't heard from him in a long time. The idea of focusing on one person really indicates to me that people don't understand the scope of the mission. Terrorism is bigger than one person and he's a person who's now been marginalized," Bush said.
He makes two good points: (1) it's progress when Osama & Co. are too busy running and dodging bombs to hurt us; (2) bin Laden is just one link in an entire network that must be dismantled. Obvious points, to most Americans anyway, but worth remembering and reminding the press.
