Kahn a free pass, after all) the SEALs probably would have had ISI agents on a ride-along, the same way the CIA did when they were operating along the border region (which is the only place Musharraf allowed them to go).
You know that the strategy that ultimately became known as "The Surge" in Iraq was in planning for two years?You know like he did when he could not figure out what to do in Afghanistan, should I add troops, should I not.......
Should I, should I not, should I, should I not..............

Keeping Osama alive was the least he could do for the people who funded his "career" in the oil business, a career that never made a cent back for any of the investors.
That's why one of the first things Bush did after taking office, was pull the FBI off of tracing Al Qaeda funds....
