Whatever happened to 'Dead or Alive'?

Remember this? George Bush probably wishes you didn't.
Bush: bin Laden 'prime suspect'

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Osama bin Laden is the "prime suspect" in last Tuesday's terrorist attacks in New York and Washington and the United States wants to capture him , President Bush said Monday.

Speaking with reporters after a Pentagon briefing on plans to call up reserve troops, Bush offered some of his most blunt language to date when he was asked if he wanted bin Laden dead.

"I want justice," Bush said. "And there's an old poster out West… I recall, that said, 'Wanted, Dead or Alive.'"
Of course, the media's now whoring that today's OBL tape is a plus for Bush, and I suppose if they keep whoring it, maybe people will start to believe them. But why should that be so? Why should the media play this as anything other than another defeat for America in the "war on terra"? How is Bush keeping us safer, how is he a "strong leader," if the man responsible for the worst attack we've suffered on our soil in 60 years is still out there, still threatening us? I don't get it.
