  1. It’s funny how one isolated story that raises your skepticism can be used as an example that an ENTIRE NATION’S media is ethically bankrupt. Perhaps you don’t like British papers like The Guardian or The Observer because they report news that doesn’t jive with your politics, but I don’t think there’s any question that their journalists are consistently better than ours at asking hard questions and holding their politicians and power brokers accountible for their actions. Does this mean I get to look at the mindless crap in USA Today and say, “Aw man, this is why I hate the American press…”

    Anglo bashing aside, whether or not there’s any supporting evidence, the news that we’d stage a capture of Osama isn’t surprising to me.

  2. “…the news that we’d stage a capture of Osama isn’t surprising to me.”

    You mean like we “staged” the routing of the Taliban in Afghanistan, and we “staged” the elimination of Saddam and his cronies in Iraq. The use of the word “stage” says more about Stephen and his political bias than anything I could add.

    For what it’s worth, I believe the reports that OBL has been in Iran for a long time. The sources for that information seem more substantial…but who really knows?

  3. STEVEN: Great comments! I was trying to email you but your email function on this site doesn’t work. As quoted you in an update of my item about the reports about Osama bin Laden being boxed in. As a former journalist I suspect there could be some truth to it but it is hard to understand if it was true why the Washington Post or Newsweek wouldn’t be all over it. On the other hand, I remember how when I reported from overseas (India and Spain during the mid to late 70s) the British media often had a different source network than the Americans. ALSO: If you have an alternate email address please let me know for future use (this is not supposed to be a plug for my blog) since for the third time I can’t get the one on your site to work. LOVE YOUR SITE!!!

  4. Joe,

    The e-mail problem is probably a result of the fact that I put two “@’a” in the online address to fool spambots. If you take one of the “@’s” out it’ll work.

    And Stephen, I am hardlty anglo-bashing. The bottom line is that there are a large number (not all, despite their recent troubles I tend to think highly of the BBC’s reporting, for example) of British newspapers that seem not to adhere to strong rules of verification. There have been a large number of stories over the years out of British papers that have turned out to be false whilst at the same time being incredibly sensationalistic. I find that to be a bad combo.

  5. Kind of depends on the size of the area where they think they have him “boxed” in as to how sure they really have him. The ruggedness of the features in that part of the world seem to make nothing a sure thing. If they’re smart we won’t know until they have him in hand.

  6. Let’s see, we’ve had “Boxing Helena,” which nary caused a stir of controversy at the “box” office when it was released.

    “The Passion of the Christ” is now declared the most controversial movie ever!

    Anybody up for making “Boxing Osama"?

  7. Only if they put him in the ring with Stallone.

    Comment by Rodney Dill — Sunday, February 22, 2004 @ 7:57 pm

  8. You probably know this, but the movie “Boxing Helena” had nothing to do with pugalists.
