Recently, U.S. UAVs made three attacks in one day in Pakistans tribal territories. The Hellfire missiles were hitting targets in North Waziristan, where Taliban and al Qaeda forces are taking shelter with Pushtun tribes that are, at best, neutral in the war between the Pakistani government and the Pakistani Taliban. One of the dead terrorists is believed to be a key leader, Hussein al-Yemeni. He was believed as the planner for the attack on a CIA base across the border last December, which killed seven CIA personnel. Pakistani and American intelligence is getting a lot more information out of North Waziristan, as the local tribal leaders are reluctant to go looking for informers, and tribesmen are less fearful about providing (for a fee) information. The tribal leaders fear that the army could still advance into North Waziristan, and after seeing how badly the Taliban were beaten in South Waziristan, and elsewhere in the tribal territories, they really want to avoid another round of fighting.

I'd say $25 million would qualify for "rich."
Might be obama is planning to bring in Ben Laden where it will bring him the most glory....I think we’ve had him for a very long time but would not reveal so as it would then give ME countries an excuse to tell us to get out ...pre-maturely.
You may be right in that they know where he's at and can't find a way to get to him without leveling everything near by. It's no good to Zero to come on the air and say we got Ben Laden if he has no proof.
ATTENTION....11:00 MEETING AT THE ROTUNDA
For the first time in over 100 years...the purpose of this meeting is Republicans will be praying there....Demonstrators were also invited...and any democrates who want to come.
If you arent going to church maybe we should also pray with them at this time....I suspect it will be a moving moment in our History since God is the God of all History.
I will be in church.
I think they should put it in terms that would be
more compatible to the area.
Turn in Osama and get 1500 lbs. of gold!
An extended family could live pretty well in Argentina on 25 million.
While I wouldn’t mind a Hellfire missiel blowing Osama to smithereens, the best picture would be one of him hanging at the end of rope like Saddam. And the photos dropped over large areas of the mideast.
