There are reports that al-Zarqawi could have been taken out a several times before but the President Bush did not the opportunity. I just can’t understand why President Bush, a trigger happy war hawk president, would hesitate to apprehend a ‘terrorist,’ and I quote the word terrorist because not bring a criminal to justice is almost like giving him a license to commit crimes…
The Guardian Unlimited states:
The blog quotes an NBC report saying the Bush administration had several chances to wipe out Zarqawi’s terrorist operation and perhaps kill Zarqawi himself – but never pulled the trigger.
This begs the question, has President Bush missed opportunities in bringing Osama bin Laden to justice? How can it be that Osama has evaded capture for his crimes when Americans can’t even evade the tax collectors. It is interesting to note that the infamous mobster Al Capone was convicted for tax evasion and not for the murders attributed to him.
