ye who enter here be afraid, but do what ye must -- to defeat your fear ye must defy it.

& defeat it ye must, for only then can we begin to realize liberty & justice for all.

time bomb tick tock? nervous tic talk? war on war?

or just a blog crying in the wilderness, trying to make sense of it all, terror-fried by hate radio and FOX, the number of whose name is 666??? (coincidence?)

what is this crap?

ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan – When a woman involved in a polio vaccine drive turned up at Osama bin Laden's hideaway, she remarked to the men behind the high walls about the expensive SUVs parked inside. The men took the vaccine, apparently to administer to the 23 children at the compound, and told her to go away.

The terror chief and his family kept well hidden behind thick walls in this northwestern hill town they shared with thousands of Pakistani soldiers. But glimpses of their life are emerging — along with deep skepticism that authorities didn't know they were there.

"skepticism that authorities didn't know they were there"? why? it was a goddamn mansion! since when do "authorities" disturb the privacy of the rich?

if he'd hidden in a "spider hole", on the other hand, they'd've found him long ago.

of course, you can't entirely rule out the possibility of some officials taking bribes to remain silent, but more likely it's just a case of ordinary bureaucratic incompetence rather than something characteristic of pakistan's present government that another regime would have handled more effectively.

i can't believe even the BBC got sucked into this one.
