But I Thought Bush Said bin Laden Wasn't That Important!!!
Victory in Iraq is important for Osama bin Laden, and victory in Iraq is vital for the United States of America," Bush told the graduating class seated in a stadium under bright sunshine along the Thames River.
Bush said intelligence showed that in January 2005, bin Laden tasked Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, his senior operative in Iraq, to organize a terrorist cell and use Iraq as a staging ground for attacking the United States.
Just your basic government double-think, I guess.
It IS truly weird how obsessed Bush is with al-CIA-duh in Iraq, but doesn't really seem to put much premium into getting bin Laden or Zawahiri.
But maybe that is because bin Laden and Zawahiri aren't the ones REALLY in charge...
