Bin Laden loves the U.S. press.

This morning I was watching a great documentary on the Discovery Times Channel about Bin Laden and why it’s been so difficult in capturing or killing him.

During the documentary Richard Clark stated very clearly that the biggest problem was that in 1998 the U.S. media had leaked that the U.S. was tracking Bin Laden on his satellite phone. It was this tracking method that allowed us to come close to killing him in the 1998 Tomahawk missile attack on his camps.

Unfortunately after learning from the U.S. media how we were tracking him, Bin Laden stopped using a satellite phone making the tracking of Bin Laden “impossible”.

Good job press! You do an amazing job of putting the interest of the United States first.
