I like watching leaps logic:
CIA director Michael Hayden said a few things as reported by the BBC website. He said, "In fact, he (Osama Bin Laden) appears to be largely isolated from the day-to-day operations of the organization he nominally heads." Followed by, "If there is a major strike on this country, it will bear the fingerprints of al-Qaeda."
Ergo, we are still looking for Bin Laden because getting him would strike a major psychological blow to al-Qaeda. I don't have their ground intelligence (obviously) but doesn't it seem that maybe if Bin Laden is isolated from the day-to-day operations than getting him wouldn't necessarily be a top priority? Shouldn't we instead be figuring out the cost benefit analysis of how many additional Bin Laden's we create by trying to capture Terrorist Zero and you know, go from there?
