Where’s the proof, prez?

President Bush doesn’t really want to bring Osama bin Laden to justice; he wants him to be lynched. That is what “Wanted - Dead or Alive” means. Why does Bush refuse to make public the evidence that bin Laden was responsible for the attacks of September 11? Maybe he doesn’t trust us? Or maybe there is no evidence? Meanwhile, in the poorest country on earth, bombs continue to fall and the inhabitants continue to die. And young people continue to volunteer, prepared to die for their faith or their country. How does the song go? “When will we ever learn?” Wouldn’t it be better if they and we would volunteer to build a saner world? This one isn’t very sane.
