MSNBC.com front page: Obama to renew hunt for bin Laden
Headlines like this might give some the impression that the hunt has been shut down and now Obama is taking it upon himself to start things back up. I’m sure that the press wouldn’t want to give any false impressions.
For the record, I do believe that Afghanistan has not received the attention it should.
Also for the record, I’ve always thought there’s a better than 50-50 chance bin Laden has been dead since Tora Bora or shortly after, and nothing since then has done much to change my opinion. Rough audio tapes actually increase my suspicions.
