Where's Bin Laden?

239 weeks since 9-11-2001.

As I've said before, someone should ask this question of Bush every day. This week, one reporter asked the question ... in Pakistan:
"The truth is nobody has a clue where he is," says Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, speaking about bin Laden, in an exclusive interview with Frank Ucciardo on CBS News' Up to the Minute. "Nobody knows whether he's alive or not."
When I started this obsession a few months ago, I wrote:
I don't care whether capturing OBL has any strategic value at this point or whether it would stop any future attacks. This country NEEDS to catch him just for the psychological value.
For the past few weeks, we've been witnesses to the spectacle of the federal government trying first to convict Zacarias Moussaoui, and now, to give him the death penalty. This week, they had the families of the victims testify, and they played the cockpit recording of flight 93. This whole trial is about the psychological value of punishing Moussaoui. He's nothing. We (still) NEED to capture OBL and put him on trial.

Some dude is selling coffee mugs and bumper stickers that say Hey Bush! Where's Bin Laden?
Someone else is running a website that asks Where's Osama?
