Big question for General Myers. (Insider Report).
General Myers' response clashes with George W. Bush's well known "Wanted: Dead or Alive" statement of last September, but it is in harmony with the president's more recent assertion that "I truly am not that concerned about him [bin Laden]" (see "Bin Laden Doesn't Concern Bush?!" in the April 8th issue of TNA).
Responding to Hunt's "big question," General Myers also commented: "... I just read a piece by some analysts that said you may not want to go after the top people in these [terrorist] organizations. You may have more effect by going after the middle men, because they're harder to replace. I don't know if that's true, or not, and clearly we would like to eventually get bin Laden." Could such a rationale shed light on why the world's most wanted man has thus far eluded capture? Does such a rationale even make any sense? Obviously the general does not sound very convinced.
