Whom Will Bush Arrest First: Sheehan or Bin Laden?

Can you spot the real threat to national security?

Let's see... there's this guy.

Turns out Bush could have nailed him years ago.

According to the CIA field commander at Tora Bora, U.S. intelligence absolutely knew that Osama Bin Laden was not only present, but virtually trapped. All the CIA and Special Forces guys needed was additional conventional support to cut off his escape, and Bin Laden would have been arrested.

This was in December of 2001.

But Bush and Rumsfeld never sent the additional troops.

And then there's this woman.

Cindy Sheehan is the mother of Casey Sheehan, a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq.

She's holed up just down the road from Bush's ranch in Crawford. She's unarmed, nonviolent, and carrying little but questions. She simply agrees with the 61% of Americans who disapprove of Bush's handling of the war. All she's doing is demanding accountability from her elected president.

Ms. Sheehan is receiving a steady series of hassles and threats of arrest on constantly-changing terms.

Curious set of priorities, this.

For a man who talks so much about democracy and freedom, he certainly makes time for some unusual friends.

Those are the oil-rich dictators Abdullah, Nazarbayev, and Karimov. I didn't plan it this way, but the photos are proportioned roughly to the amount of oil they control.

Bush has no problem whatsoever making time for people who (respectively, and just for starters) jail free-speech advocates, persecute opponents, and even open fire on demonstrators.

Bush's attitude toward an American citizen exercising constitutional rights? We already know.

And so, I ask:

Osama Bin Laden or Cindy Sheehan:

Which one will George W. Bush have arrested first?

Cindy is far more dangerous to him. A "threat to national security."

is more of a threat to national AND world security

(Six years later, and Bush is still "looking" for OBL )
