    I was watching Fox news when the Bin Laden tape aired and something struck me as strange. Now, don't get me wrong...I am an avid supporter of Bush and I think the policy on Iraq (regardless of war or not) is sound, but, Powell announced the existence of this tape before Al Jazeera knew they had it. Also, this tape was broadcast live as it was shown for the 1st time on arab TV. What about the administrations analysis prior to public release? No fear of code from Bin Suckin? I haven't heard anyone raising these questions either. I hate to feed the fire of the anti war/Bush crowd out there but I find it odd and am just wondering if you guys have heard anything addressing this.

    What makes you say that? I knew they knew about it early on, before it was aired in UAE, but how do you come to the conclusion of "before Al Jazeera knew they had it"?

    Also, this tape was broadcast live as it was shown for the 1st time on arab TV. What about the administrations analysis prior to public release? No fear of code from Bin Suckin
    The tape wasn't "live". It was a recording from some other time. I don't see code as being an issue because from what I heard this morning, they never gave even one specific quote from the text copy they had recieved but rather general overview type analysis that was let out on our radio's here.

    Seenbad- Fox news said that as soon as Powell spoke of it the AP and some other news organizations contacted Al Jazeera and questioned them about the tape and they said they had no tape. They only acknowledged they had the tape about 1/2 hour before it aired

    I think its just bad information. They had to have had the tape before they aired it. Longer than that. They said that they had reviewed it in its entirety hours prior to airing it and said that they wouldn't be playing it all the way through due to bad quality in some parts. That tells me that they really did listen to it first. I think it would take longer than a half hour to both listen, come to that conclusion, and let people know that they aren't planning on playing all of it.

    Evidently we have someone at Al Jezira. Now everone knows. Powell stepped on his dick on this one if this is true.

    Al Jazira thinks Binladen is dead, but they get faxes from him or his people and the return number is from an area in Western Pakistan. We and the British are quietly hunting for him in Western Pakistan and it's very dangerous because many of the tribes in that area are fanatical Moslems who are loyal to Al Caida. We will have to get really lucky to get him.

    I just started this thread to fish for info that I wasn't picking up from the news. Please, no naked photographs of you anti war guys spelling out "Bush" or "no war"....unless of course you happen to have big boobies.

    Bin Laden was a hell of lot more accesible during the Clinton years than Bush's. The only thing that Clinton did of significance was lob 40 Tomahawks at his encampment which did absolutely nothing. Bush literally has Americans sticking their noses in caves 1000's of miles away to find his skinny ass. If Clinton would have made a better effort to find him, then we would not be having this conversation. IMHO.
