A Bird in the Bush
While common sense tells one that Osama bin Laden was never meant to be captured, the brouhaha over Gary Berntsen’s book provides further confirmation of that. Although Berntsen can’t come right out and say that he thinks OBL was allowed to escape on purpose, anyone can see that Bush’s buddy and Chief Boogeyman is of far greater value on the lam than captured (he might not even be alive, but that doesn’t matter). Yes indeed, a bird in the Bush is worth more than two in the hand.
