Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
This bin Laden message thing is weird. It's like bin Laden is handing Kerry and Bush each a box of shotgun shells and telling them not to shoot themselves in the foot. Of course the temptation when bin Laden tells you not to shoot yourself in the foot is blow both feet clean off just to show your contempt for bin Laden.
It will be interesting to see how we handle this. If they don't find any actionable intelligence in the message, the prudent thing would be to ignore it---but can we? Reminds me of one of my favorite Ron White lines, " . . . I had the right to remain silent, but I didn't have the ability."
