Another major reason. Given the record of the present US administration,
had they done it, they would have *buggered it up* just like they've
buggered up everything else they've tried to do, likely through making
plans that assume that everything works perfectly, and then running
around like headless chickens when it didn't.

This `plot' essentially assumes that the Bush Administration and Osama
bin Laden are in cahoots. And *that* is a step too far. It's as stupid
as assuming Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden were in cahoots, and for
much the same reasons (they hate each other! They're ideological

... and that by now it would all have fallen apart? Hell, the first
person to get fired from the administration after that would have
quietly talked, or gone to the press with it, or both...
