Two Years Later, Everyone Catches On

The British press is reporting we're making heap big effort to catch bin Laden. ninme provides the link and one of the Powerline fellers speculates:
I've wondered for a long time whether we have had a better idea of bin Laden's whereabouts than has been publicly revealed, and whether we have preferred to leave him at large rather than to capture or kill him. Why could this be the case? Presumably because we have cracked the security surrounding bin Laden and have been able to acquire valuable intelligence by leaving him at large.
That's an interesting wrinkle. But on the larger story, Toldja. All you had to do was pay careful attention to what Bush & Karzai said back here. When people are strangely unconcerned about an objectively disastrous development, they know something you don't know --or at least think they do.
