October Surprise: bin Laden Captured
If US officials suddenly announce that they have captured bin Laden in the next two months, anyone that votes for Bush must be retarded. If they have the audacity to try to pull an October surprise like that, it shows contempt for the American people and an underhanded, cynical and manipualtive political game that should make anyone with any brains turn away with disgust.
U.S. Official Says Close to Catching Bin Laden
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - The United States and its allies have put Osama bin Laden on the defensive, increasing chances of his capture soon, a U.S. counter-terrorism official said in remarks published in Pakistani media on Sunday.
Cofer Black, State Department coordinator for counter-terrorism, said in Islamabad the entire "infrastructure" was in place to capture bin Laden and his close lieutenants, Pakistan's English language Daily Times reported.

Osama bin Laden - What makes US counter-terrorism so confident? (9/5/04)
"There seems to be a lot of confidence out there and his "capture" could very well be announced in October?
Our earlier article reported that Osama bin Laden had already been caught (4 weeks ago, according to our sources) and that this was going to be officially announced in October (see below).
The report, which can not be confirmed, made no reference as to who might conceal such information (if anyone) and we can only make guesses as to who and why.
There is no doubt at all that George Bush would benefit from the announcement of his "capture", if it was made just a few weeks before the election and the timing would be a remarkable coincidence. Especially as the US have been looking for him for almost 3 years."
"This election campaign (no matter who wins) will be remembered as been very "dirty" and some of the tactics that have been employed do not belong in a country like America. But perhaps the saddest part is the inability of some to see it and the eager acceptance of others who can."
