"Bin Laden Trail 'Stone Cold'* there's also a remarkable piece on the front page of Murdoch's broadsheet The Australian (which is probably the best paper in the country):
Today, however, no one person is in charge of the overall hunt for bin Laden with the authority to direct covert CIA operations to collect intelligence and to dispatch JSOC units. Some counterterrorism officials find this absurd. "There's nobody in the United States government whose job it is to find Osama bin Laden!" one frustrated counterterrorism official shouted. "Nobody!""
"THE US will intensify the hunt for Osama bin Laden after al-Qa'ida taunted the West yesterday with a video of the fugitive meeting the suicide hijackers of the 9/11 terror attacks.that's either some really bad reporting, or a tacit admission that most of the 'tapes' are bollox.
But the footage provides no proof that the world's most wanted terrorist, who has not been heard from since October 2004, is still alive."
meanwhile, damien sez:
Nice piece over at WUFYS on where the Osama tapes come from.
