Keeping It In Perspective

Mark Levin over at The Corner makes a good point that we should all keep in mind:
It took seven years to find Eric Rudolph, despite a massive and rentless
man hunt. He was found almost by accident--when a sharp patrolman spotted him digging through trash in North Carolina. We'll get Bin Laden, and everyone knows
it. It's just a matter of time.

Was it Bill Clinton's fault that the FBI could not find Eric Rudolf? Of course not, and I can't remember any of Clinton's critics leveling that charge.

Osama, by design, has chosen some of the most remote and rugged territory in the world in which to hide. He is surrounded by a small group of people whose loyalty to him is so profound that the $50 million on his head means nothing. The people in the area do not get CNN, MSNBC or Fox News, in fact, they probably cannot even read. I would venture to guess that many of them do not even know what Osama looks like. Eventually, guys like Osama always make a mistake and I have no doubt that when that time comes, we will be there.
