ABC reports that the intellegence guys are claiming that the noose around bin Laden is being tightened, and that they are close to capturing him. While I hope this is true, one cant help wondering why it is being advertised if it is not yet done. Unless its an honest discovery by a very clever reporter (I cant imagine an unintentional leak at this point, unless its from the Pakistanis) it must serve some other purpose by the good guys to put such a possibility out to the public. It is possible, I suppose, that he is already caught.
Wouldnt officials have to concerned that an announcement of bin Ladens death or capture might be a trigger for various sleeper cells? And so, like L. Ron Hubbard, Osamas death will be covered up, by us, for quite some time.
Speaking of L. Ron Hubbard... What is the social correlation and significance in the fact that many Hollywood stars are seeking meaning in being social/peace activists, and scientologists? Does it strike anyone as odd that this "religion" while small in numbers, is the fastest growing religion in america?
