Pentagon Knows Where Osama is Hiding

Why isn't this receiving more attention? Jim Lehman, a member of the 9/11 Commission and former Navy Secretary under Ronald Regan - as well as Colin Powell - say the U.S. knows exactly where Osama is hiding in Pakistan.

Bin Laden is living in South Waziristan in the Baluchistan Mountains of the Baluchistan region, Lehman told The San Bernardino Sun after delivering a keynote speech on terrorism at Pitzer College in Claremont....

So what are we waiting for? Why don't we go in and get him? Check out this lame excuse:

If we did, we could have another Vietnam, and the United States cannot afford that right now.

Excuse me? We could invade Iraq to take out Saddam who wasn't a threat to us but we won't go in and get bin Laden?

There's more to the absurdity. We know how he's getting his money. In addition to funds from other countries, he's getting a million a year from his family.

"He is not a wealthy man," Lehman said. "We ran that information into the ground, and discovered he only receives about $1 million a year from his family's fortune. The rest of what he gets comes from radical sympathizers."

What kind of expenses does he run up living in a cave? And we can't pressure the Saudis to turn off the family faucet?

Either this is a prelude to Bush trotting out Osama, more likely dead than alive, for his October surprise or this Administration is beyond incompetent.
