Oh, Great ...

Bush & Co. do NOT want us to find Bin Laden ... there's too much connecting the two:

TERRORISM -- WHITE HOUSE LEAK OF BIN LADEN VIDEO FORCES INTELLIGENCE COMPANY TO END OPERATIONS: The Washington Post reports today that Search for International Terrorist Entities (SITE), a private intelligence company, gave the White House an advanced copy of an Osama bin Laden video last month under the condition that the government keep the video secret until it was officially released by al Qaeda. Within hours, however, the video was leaked to cable news shows. "The founder of the company...says this premature disclosure...destroyed a years-long surveillance operation that the company has used to intercept and pass along secret messages, videos and advance warnings of suicide bombings from the terrorist group's communications network." The breach spurred al Qaeda to shut down its intranet network and online communications. Nick Grace, the founder of who tracked the network shutdown, said, "It was both unprecedented and chilling from the perspective of a Web techie. The discipline and coordination to take the entire system down involving multiple Web servers, hundreds of user names and passwords, is an astounding feat, especially that it was done within minutes." The government did not deny the leak charge, but "some intelligence officials called the incident regrettable."
