yakk: unfortunately, it isn't "the will of the people" to just try Osama Bin Laden. I actually have faith that the administration has plenty of evidence that he did it....it is just that people want blood. I wish that we could take the course of action that you suggest, but it will never happen. Bush is being told that he'll lose re-election if he just goes after a single arrest. People want a war, and that's what he'll give them. Unfortunately, people only want war after the media has done an excellent job of building bloodlust (for example, the Discovery channel had a program entitled "Know your enemy" two nights ago....it was about Afghanistan). I want justice, not death. I refer you to chapter 14 of a People's History of The United States - "War is the Health of the State."
