Merry Christmas, Osama

Osama Bin Laden is not important anymore. That opinion, coming from administration sources, comes after feckless efforts to apprehend the terrorist chief have failed. Do the familes of the September 11 dead agree that the master plotter is no longer worth the chase?

This makes me think of George Washington. After a string of defeats, Washington and the remnants of his army holed up at Valley Forge. The British thought that the insurgent army would soon dissolve. George Washington was a non-entity, a failing factor. The revolution was about to collapse. Suddenly, Washington's army attacked Trenton on Christmas Day. That was the turning point in the revolution.

Makes me wonder what kind of present Osama will deliver on Christmas Day.
