C.I.A. Closes Unit Focused on Capture of bin Laden
WASHINGTON, July 3 — The Central Intelligence Agency has closed a unit that for a decade had the mission of hunting Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants, intelligence officials confirmed Monday.
...Michael Scheuer, a former senior C.I.A. official who was the first head of the unit, said the move reflected a view within the agency that Mr. bin Laden was no longer the threat he once was.

Peace Takes Strength wrote:The only foreign policy and war strategy I see, and which you’ve highlighted, is withdrawals and an abdication of leadership. It’s certainly a lot easier to run from a fight than to stay and take the punches.

Peace Takes Strength wrote:It must really bother the anti-war left to hear the rhetoric by this administration with regards to Israel and Iran. Can you imagine the vitriolic, apoplectic fits the left would have gone through if Bush had gone to AIPAC and said that he’s ‘got Israel’s back’ or he’d go to war with Iran to defend Israel. Man I could just imagine all the radical anti-war lefties building tent encampments in city parks right before their heads exploded as they screamed “no blood for oil”.
