Osama's excellent adventure

CIA chief Porter Goss has an “excellent” idea where Osama bin Laden is hiding, but he won’t say where or when he will be caught. In an interview with Time magazine’s Web site, Goss said:

“In the chain that you need to successfully wrap up the war on terror, we have some weak links. And I find that until we strengthen all the links, we’re probably not going to be able to bring Mr. bin Laden to justice. … “

“Excellent,” as Bill and Ted (played by Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves)would say. I have an excellent idea where bin Laden isn’t. He isn’t in U.S. custody, at least not that we know. So just how many weak links do we have to wrap up before we catch Osama? One, two, an entire sleeper cell? And who is the weakest link? And will that crappy TV show be revived?

A lot of questions remain yet to be answered. Personally, I think Osama is alive and living in a certain small Texas town which I will not name. I have the excellent idea that bin Laden is running a convenience store in that town, which by the way, is an excellent convenience store in an excellent little town.

So I don’t know how much stock I would put into Goss’ excellent wild ass guess that he knows where bin Laden may be. Because if the greatest military machine on earth has yet to find him then he may well be hiding out in that excellent little Texas town instead of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

And that wouldn’t be very excellent.
