Osama Bin Forgotten

Years later...

Lives lost.
Billions (Trillions?) spent on killing.
Gas prices higher than I ever thought we would see in this country.
War that lags on and on.
Soldiers maimed and killed.
Civilians living in a war zone.
A few profiting from the making of the instruments of war.
Civil liberties watered down in the name of "security."
After all of this, I have just this one question: Whatever happened to Osama Bin Laden? Isn't the mastermind who had suicide hijackers fly into two U.S. buildings the excuse that was used to enter into all this madness? Isn't the Saudi hiding in Afghanistan the reason we attacked Iraq (don't try to make sense of it now; we didn't bother insisting it made sense at the time)? If the person responsible for a day of terror in the U.S. is the reason for more than half a decade of psychological, economic, and conventional warfare is still at large, then what was it all for? The question that nags at me is, does anyone remember Osama Bin Laden? The question isn't a political one. It isn't partisan. It isn't unpatriotic. It is insulting to the troops. It's just a common sense question and one that justice demands be asked...Whatever happened to Osama, and why isn't anyone talking about him anymore?

I'm planning on blogging on this subject. I'm one of the few people in the world who knows what happened to Osama. I am just trying to get up the courage to tell the truth. The government does not like it when people expose their cover-ups.
