Thinking About the Capture

Here’s the latest in a long line of similarities between the thinking of fundamentalist Islamofascist thugs and well-heeled western liberals.

Iran’s state radio, quoting an unnamed source, said Saturday that Osama bin Laden was captured in Pakistan “a long time ago.” A Pakistan army spokesman denied he was captured.

The report said that U.S. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld’s visit to the region this week was in connection with the arrest.

The state radio said a reporter for its Pushtun service in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar “confirmed the news” that bin Laden had been captured in a tribal region in Pakistan. He said the news was from “a very reliable source in Peshawar, Pakistan,” but the source was not identified.

Pakistani Army spokesman Gen. Shaukat Sultan told The Associated Press that the report is completely untrue. “That information is wrong,” he said.

A Pakistani military operation has been under way in the border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan and a Pakistani official said previously that members of al-Qaida are being sought there, although bin laden was not a specific target.

Iranian state radio quoted its reporter as saying the arrest happened a long time ago.

“Osama bin Laden has been arrested a long time ago, but Bush is intending to use it for propaganda maneuvering in the presidential election,” he said.

I’ve been hearing around San Francisco for the last year or so that Bush, the master propagandist, was going to capture bin Laden, then keep it a secret until the perfect moment, so that he could use it to win the election.  It’s interesting, isn’t it, the many similarities between the peace-and-love crowd and the Allah-will-smite-thee crowd.
