Bush: Capture of Bin Laden 'not a top priority'

You know, whenever Bush saying something like this, I think the best solution to the resulting quandary is to blame the Democrats! They're weak, you see. After all, we got the guy who perpetrated 9/11, right? Er, wait ...

From Faux News, yesterday (circa ThinkProgress) ...

HOST: Alright Fred, you and a few other journalists were in the Oval Office with the President, right? And he says catching Osama bin Laden is not job number one?

BARNES [Editor, Weekly Standard]: Well, he said, look, you can send 100,000 special forces, that's the figure he used, to the mountains of Pakistan and Afghanistan and hunt him down, but he just said that'’s not a top priority use of American resources. His vision of a war on terror is one that involves intelligence to find out from people, to get tips, to follow them up and break up plots to kill Americans before they occur. That's what happened recently in that case of the planes that were to be blown up by terrorists, we think coming from England, and that'’s the top priority. He says, you know, getting Osama bin Laden is a low priority compared to that.
