More on the bin Laden escape

Past Peak has another posting on the miraculous escape of bin Laden from Tora Bora, quoting from the new Newsweek article, which points out that:

  • American commanders knew that bin laden was at Tora Bora; and

  • the Pentagon nevertheless refused to deploy a cordon of its forces to cut off the escape routes.

This inevitably leads us back to the Michael Meacher theory (or here) that the whole 'war on terror', an integral part of which would have to have been the capture of bin Laden, was just a sham needed to create the 'Pax Americana' American hegemony as set out in numerous policy documents created by the Project for the New American Century think tank.
