Getting bin Laden key to defeating al Qaida

• McClatchy News
Days after his boss said that there was no new intelligence on the whereabouts of al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan told Congress Tuesday that killing or capturing bin Laden is critical to defeating the terrorist organization.

Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top Afghanistan commander, said, however, that he could not promise that his new military strategy would lead to bin Laden's capture because when the al Qaida leader moves outside of Afghanistan, chasing after him "is outside my mandate."

Afraid not, Lone Ranger.  bin Laden is only a banker, a provider of money to al Q., and only one of many High Chiefs.  His status has been over inflated in order to provided the Government with a boogie-man they wave before the people to rally us to war.   Taking bin Laden out will cut off a significant source of money for al Q. but their war with us will still continue.
