"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Osama Who?

Apparently the media has received the order to downplay any possibility of Osama bin Laden's involvement with the London bombings:
The London terror attacks bear the stamp of al-Qaida, but terrorism experts say Osama bin Laden may have played little or no role. They suggest that what's far more likely is that the attackers who planned and carried out the bombings were local operatives who didn't need much money or expertise from overseas to wreak havoc.
In contrast to the media's initial reaction, there seems to be a concerted effort to reduce the volume on the fear machine. First the semantics of "terrorist" versus "bombers", and now the distinct disassociation of Osama's involvement with the attacks. Is the Bush Blair Team concerned that the public is waking up to the fact that the "War on Terror" is being lost?
