See, this is just like when they said he wanted to fly planes into the pentagon in 2002. IF he does it they will say "we were warned". That's not a warning. Anybody who hasn't known he wants to do that is an idiot or an ostrich. Or both. Or has their beeber stuned.

Okay. And I want to fly to Pakistan and shove a live grenade up Bin Laden's a--. So what? What matters is not what Bin Laden or I want to do, but rather what either of us is actually capable of doing. I would rate OBL's chances of getting an nuke as slim and none. If OBL was going to get a nuke, it would have been before he hit us on 911 and everybody had their guard up. Now it would be much more difficult for him or anyone else to do it.

What a coincidence - North Korea wants to SELL weapons. It's a match made in hell.

People in hell want ice water. Bin Laden will relate to that sooner or later.

Osama lacks one thing that a nuke will require: cold hard cash and tons of it.

Yasser Arafat is wishing he had listened to all those people who tried to tell him about Jesus Christ dying for his sins...maybe he can tell Osodom Bum Lousy about it when he arrives one of these days soon.

If we had a CIA that had any imagination they would get a bomb and deliver it to UBL. Once we knew he had it detonate it. Seems like a plan.

Why should he buy one in Russia? According to the anti-immigrant alarmists, nukes are being backpacked across our Mexican border by the case.

He could just come to an American town near the border and buy one at the flea market.

Prayer rugs must cheap too. On posted article was about a lady who lives near the border who finds a half dozen in her back yard every morning that were abandoned by terrorists passing through during the night. (The Indian native American rugs are better).

I almost wish this would happen. Then there would be no opposition (either foreign or domestic) for turning the Middle East into glass. T'would put a quick end to the Islamofascist threat which is very, very real...SSZ

I can only wonder just how much the CIA pays these "experts". You could get better intelligence than this from your average third-grader.

I am sure the Palestinians, when they get their hands on the Billions Arafat had stashed will be bidding against Osama. Osama is only worth about 300 Million, The Pali's will win.

So when the night turns to day suddenly in New York, there will be dancing once again in the streets of Palestine.
