Public Enemy Whatever

Osama bin Laden is still at large, 1,760 days after he mounted the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
National Public Radio reported on Monday that the CIA unit devoted to hunting bin Laden, created in the Clinton administration, has been disbanded:
Nearly five years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Osama Bin Laden is still a free man. U.S. officials are not sure where he is, although it has long been assumed that he is hiding in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region. Although the U.S. government says the hunt is still on, the CIA recently closed its Bin Laden unit.
We found Saddam Hussein. We found 500 spent shells of chemical weapons left over from before 1991. Since when has catching Osama bin Laden become a less than top priority?
