One of the Freepers made the "mistake" of dropping the O-word:
Maybe it's time FINALLY to go and get Osama? Remember Osama? Anybody? Anybody?

I was lectured on Freerepublic that I was supposed to "feel safer" because we captured Saddam -- even though there's no evidence that he was behind 9-11. Osama is the guy that Bush promised to get "dead or alive" -- but four years later, he's still out there, free as a jail bird.
Maybe it's time to refocus on the mastermind and culprits who were behind 9-11?
Prediction: I'll get flamed as a "DU provacateur" for advocating that we go after somebody who killed 3000-plus people on American soil.
Oh, come on, churchillbuff, have some faith in human nature!
Or, on second thought, don't. Among the replies sampled at NMMNB:
People like you both amuse and disgust me. You expend energy to mock and impede the war on terror, you're nowhere to be found as daily we post victory after victory in the GWOT, but the second something like this happens you proclaim defeat, using the Brits' suffering for your own weak position. You should be ashamed.
Nothing but more hot air from you.
It's all our fault, us evil Westerners should get what we deserve. All bow to Allah, wear your burka's and submit to the chosen few to rule the world.
I truly think you are a descendant of Neville Chamberlain.
Bush NEVER promised to get Osama dead or alive. He said he wanted him dead or alive. Huge difference.
He's irrelevent, except for Bush bashers who need something to whine about.
"He's irrelevent" [sic]? Oh, I can probably think of a few dozen British families who aren't so sure.
But anyway, if you were wondering how you were supposed to respond to this latest attack w/r/t America's strategy in the war on terror, the Freepers have made it official: If you still want to capture Osama, you are an appeaser and a traitor.
My head's about to explode trying to comprehend all this. Somebody suggest something Angelina Jolie-related to post about, hurry . . .
