Default BUSH REJECTED PLANS TO GO AFTER TOP TERRORIST

Bush Avoided Going after Zarqawi for political reasons.

In his effort to claim he is the strongest candidate on national
security, President Bush has lately been speaking a lot about how he
is doing everything possible to track down terrorist Abu Musab
al-Zarqawi1 - the man thought to be responsible for escalating
attacks on U.S. soldiers in Iraq.2 But according to NBC News, it was
Bush who in 2002 and 2003 rejected three plans to strike and
neutralize Zarqawi because he believed a successful strike would
undermine the public case for targeting Saddam Hussein. As NBC News
reported, "Long before the war, the Bush administration had several
chances to wipe out his terrorist operation and perhaps kill Zarqawi
himself - but never pulled the trigger." In June 2002, the Pentagon
drafted plans to attack a camp Zarqawi was at with cruise missiles and
airstrikes. The plan was killed by the White House. Four months later,
as Zarqawi planned to use ricin in terrorist attacks in Europe, the
Pentagon drew up a second strike plan, yet "the White House again
killed it." In January 2003, the Pentagon drew up still another attack
plan, and for the third time, the White House killed it.3 According
to NBC, "Military officials insist their case for attacking Zarqawi's
operation was airtight, but the administration feared destroying the
terrorist camp in Iraq could undercut its case for war against
Saddam." 4 Zarqawi is thought to be at least indirectly responsible
for hundreds of U.S. casualties. Just yesterday, Zarqawi's terrorist
group beheaded an American civilian in Baghdad.5

"...according to NBC News...."

We don't need to know any more than it's another "news" company putting out
bogus reports on a subject they don't know enough about to be considered
competent, much less honest! I, for one, am getting fed up with "news"
sources than know less than I do about the subject they are reporting on!

So you'd rather rely on the tin-foil beanie on your head?

Perhaps, but an attempt to seize Bin Laden by French special forces has
recently been stopped by US...

Thats because Bush-Cheney already have him locked up in time for the October
surpise. The perfidious French wanted to do a jail break.
