Here is my answer, or fantasy of you prefer. Assuming that Bin-Laden is behind this, which from the radio reports I hear in the background is increasingly likely, we get the Afhganis to turn him over within 24 hours. Use whatever means necessary, bribery coercion, outright threats. But make sure they arrest him and hand him over to us.
Make the release into our hands a public spectacle. Assure that all the major networks, US and worldwide, are present. A large US contingent of diplomats, and of course, US military, should be present.
Have Bin-Laden walk from Afghani custody toward US custody. At the half-way point, have a contigent of Marines open fire, aiming especially for his head.
At the same instant, launch coordinated surgical strikes against Arafat, Qaddafi, Hussein, the PLO, Baghdad, Tehran, and other terrorist groups and nations that may have had a hand in this, or just taken pleasure in the effect.
After this, President Bush immediately appears on television, detailing our limited actions, taking responsibilty for the execution of Bin-Laden, and annnouncing that any further acts of terrorism against America will call for a more extreme response.

The days of peace are over. Now that we are at war the measures will be extreme, expensive and will demand sacrifices of us all.
Iraq, Libya, the Sudan and Palestine have to be destroyed as political entities. No surgical strikes. Their governments must be destroyed and given over to a friendly power as spoils. Palestine to Israel. The Sudan to its nearest neighbor. Iraq to Turkey etc. Yasser Arafat to be captured, tried in New York and hung by the neck until dead.
aiming especially for his head.
No. His head should be preserved after decapitation, then it should be displayed on a pike in the UN General Assembly.
