The Administration’s Christmas Present to you

First of all, let me wish everyone a Merry Jesus’ Birthday. Then, let me tell you the great news: Sec Def Donald Rumsfeld has concluded that Osama bin Laden is no longer in control of Al Qaeda.
Amidst all the hoopla over the fact that our Administration is using its “war-time” powers to implement what some might construe as… authoritarian measures… it seems that we won the war while no one was looking.
The issue with OBL was either capturing him, or failing that, at least ending his control of A.Q. and sufficiently disrupting his and its operations so that he is no longer in control. Plus, Rummy notes that OBL’s reticence for around a year means he is, effectively, out of business. (Of course, given that we haven’t had a presidential or other federal election since last we heard from him, we haven’t needed him to stoke up the fear necessary to get those security moms out voting against their economic self-interests… but I digress…)
Well, OBL out of business… this is truly a Merry Christmas, no?
