Think bin Laden Watched the Debate?

If he did he must have laughed. While Gibson and Stephanupagus were diligintly querying the candidates on lapel pins and whiskey drinking the GAO released a report today. The title says it all: The United States Lacks Comprehensive Plan to Destroy the Terrorist Threat and Close the Safe Haven in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas. The gist of it is that because we're so busy spinning our wheels in Iraq, bin Laden has gotten fat and happy in the mountains of Pakistan. Furthermore, al-Qaeda has had plenty of time to regroup and plan more attacks. No matter. The real stories are Hillary's cackle and Obama's bowling score.
