We need Osama! If the guy's dead, we need to find his body. If he's not, we gotta find this jerk now!
The benefit to our safety is of course the number one benefit, but it would politically help W a lot as well and refute Kerry's claim that he's done nothing to combat terrorism.
Not as much as you might think. The Dems preemptively labled Binny's capture or the recovery of his body as a political stunt months ago. Remember, the Bush administration has him or his body in an undisclosed location, to be unveiled for an October surprise?
