In the few months left to him as king of the world, Decider George is seeking out his nemesis, the biggest bogeyman of them all — Osama bin Laden.
- President George W Bush has enlisted British special forces in a final attempt to capture Osama Bin Laden before he leaves the White House.
Defence and intelligence sources in Washington and London confirmed that a renewed hunt was on for the leader of the September 11 attacks.
â€œIf he [Bush] can say he has killed Saddam Hussein and captured Bin Laden, he can claim to have left the world a safer place,â€ said a US intelligence source.
Intelligence on the whereabouts of Bin Laden is sketchy, but some analysts believe he is in the Bajaur tribal zone in northwest Pakistan. He has evaded capture for nearly seven years.
â€œBush is swinging for the fences in the hope of scoring a home run,â€ said an intelligence source, using a baseball metaphor.
â€œWe donâ€™t have a clue where he is or even may be,â€ a Western military analyst said. â€œWe have had NO credible intelligence on OBL since 2001. All the rest is rumor and rubbish either whipped up by the media or churned out in the power corridors of western capitals.â€
A Pentagon source said US forces were rolling up Al-Qaedaâ€™s network in Pakistan in the hope of pushing Bin Laden towards the Afghan border, where the US military and bombers with guided missiles were lying in wait.
â€œThey are prepping for a major battle,â€ he said.

Of course, most military types say Osama was cornered in late 2001 within caves of the Tora Bora Mountain range in eastern Afghanistan.
Also these same people say Decider George screwed-up big time by leaving that place and turning everything — eyes, ears, throat, asshole — into war in Iraq.
And the major battle in preparation might have to be fought against Pakistan.
They hate Decider George as much as the rest of the world, even more.
All we can say is — Cowboy Go Home!
