A lot of this would be unsurprising if true. After all, there have been plenty of people expecting for some of the so-called high-value targets to be found at a convenient time for the administration. Also, it just makes sense that they would step things up as we get closer to the election - these fuckers want to keep their jobs, and they know that something like Osama magically turning up would all but seal that victory.

The most disturbing thing brought about by this article is the notion of timing. Yup, it would most certainly be fucked up if deadlines like late July were being set for political purposes. And yeah, it would be really fucked up if we had been kind of coasting since 9/11 on purpose, only stepping things up when the election is at stake.

Overall, if true, this is positively infuriating. If true; it's extra hard to sort things out when you've got nothing but anonymous sources. People like me, of course, want to believe this kind of stuff because it re-enforces our already existing beliefs. If nothing else, though, it's not out of the realm of possibility. No one is a better opportunist than Team Bush, keeping this from being mere left-wing conspiracy theory.
