THE US will launch a new effort to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, who is believed to be hiding along the mountainous Afghan-Pakistani border, US national security adviser James Jones says.

Asked in an interview if the administration planned a fresh attempt to go after al-Qaeda's leader, Mr Jones said: "I think so."

We can put up news of troop movements on the internet, just in case he doesn’t get the message. In any event, I hope they nab the SOB, assuming he is still kicking.

He can stop kicking once they wring every bit of
information out of him, or will they bring him to
New York for trial?

I know which I would choose.

How hard can it be?

They're not going to kill him, they're just going to bring to New York so Attorney General Eric Holder can give him the Key to the City.

A fresh attempt? I guess that means they’d stopped looking for him?

I’m with you. There has been no firm evidence of breath for 4 years or better.

Envision reports of UBL’s death timed to political perfection. His identification will be determined solely by DNA analysis, as his remains will be otherwise unrecognizable. Expect the announcement to arrive for maximum impact with an important election.

Exactly. What a foolish premise that is trying to be established here (by those in the MSM and even throughout the WH). Warriors have died hunting HVT #1 & #2 each year since 01. The notion that CinC Obama is now really going after him/them is an incredible slap in the face to those who have been risking all 24/7, in some of the roughest and most dangerous places on this planet for the past 8 years straight.

There are reasons behind these stories.....To those who can read between the lines...

Has there been any audio or video of this guy lately which bears verifiable evidence of post 2004 time stamps?

I think the closest we’ve come to verification is “believed to be” his voice on tape.

How can they launch a new initiative?

I hope to heck that the obama administration is not still in when they catch bin Laden.

If so, they'll bring him to New York, put an ankle bracelet on him, and rent him the royal suite at the Astoria while he awaits his (mock) trial.

He'll probably do Letterman, Tonight Show, and a local speaking tour too.

He'll be exonerated on, probably a Miranda technicality, and released at Ground Zero. The kenyan will probably name him Muslim Relations Czar, and transfer the Nobel prize to him.

Everyone with the basic sense God gave mankind knows OBL was vaporized right at the get-go.

That’s why the feds and the media think he is still alive.

Those poll numbers must be really bad for Obama to do this.

"We turned Tora Bora 2,000 degrees when Bin Laden was there.

You can count me among those who think Bin Laden is dead, by the way.

I have always thought it, just like I've always known that global warming is a manmade hoax."

The Left focuses on getting Bin Laden because it fits in with their dictator-worship. They want to put all the responsibility for 911, etc., on one person so they can pretend it’s over when they catch/kill him.

If they do get UBL, they’ll declare the former-war-on-terror won and they will gut the military to pay for their socialist programs. You can tell they’ve been dying to do this for years.

I think it is more than reasonable to speculate that those on the hunt for him may be privy to other information confirming him alive....outside of that which is known to the general public / media. Just as this was true of Zarqawi in Iraq (one who was most certainly alive for years in Iraq causing chaos, yet never put himself out on video to be seen).

Let me guess: Obama's poll numbers are tanking, lol. I mean, when Obama was riding high and mighty there was never any talk about getting Osama.

To Mr. Jones: He's dead Jim!

According to Gates there is no good intelligence on Osama bin Laden whereabouts
