Dispatches from the Creation Wars

I laughed out loud at the television while watching John McCain interviewed by Wolf Blitzer and asked about his vow to catch Osama Bin Laden. The question:

BLITZER: Let’s talk a little bit about some national security issues. You’re president of the United States, you’ve vowed that you will capture Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice.

Now we know that President Bush since 9/11 has been doing the best he can. What would you do differently?


And the answer:

SEN. JOHN MCCAIN (R-AZ), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Well, I’m not going to telegraph a lot of the things that I’m going to do because then it might compromise our ability to do so. But, look, I know the area, I have been there, I know wars, I know how to win wars, and I know how to improve our capabilities so that we will capture Osama bin Laden — or put it this way, bring him to justice.

BLITZER: All right. If you capture…

MCCAIN: We will do it, I know how to do it.

Hilarious. Gee John, if you know how to do it and no one else does, has it occurred to you that maybe you could have suggested your secret plan to President Bush sometime in the last 7 years while the government was wasting its time and money trying to find Bin Laden?
