Subject: Christiane Amanpour’s appearance on Bill Maher’s show
back in 2008
Hi Lisa …
Your followers are delighted that AHNC is back on-line.
I was interested in the link to Christiane Amanpour’s appearance on Bill Maher’s
show back in 2008. On bin Laden’s whereabouts, I came to the same conclusion she
did but in a much simpler way.
George W. Bush said he thought that bin Laden was probably a marginalized figure
holed up in isolation in a cave somewhere in Afghanistan. I reasoned that since
George W. Bush was never right about ANYTHING, a cave in Afghanistan is
precisely where we would NOT find him.
As it turned out, bin Laden was not marginalized, he was very much at the center
of al Qaeda’s operations. He was not holed up in isolation; he lived with his
wives and some kids in a small city. He was not in a cave; he was in a large
villa. And “Chez Osama” was not it Afghanistan, it was in Pakistan.
Bush was wrong on every count. But then he was always wrong. About everything.
Heck, he probably wouldn’t even like AHNC, which proves how wrong he is. :)
Hang in there,
Thank you so much for writing.
I always thought that bin Laden was holed up in
the Bahamas sipping Pina Coladas, while George Bush always acted like he was in
the Bahamas sipping Pina Coladas.
