Patriot Day number six has come and gone, yet the chief architect of the great crimes that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001 — Osama Bin Laden — is still free. How did this happen? And, what will the president who replaces George W. Bush on January 1, 2009, do to bring him to justice?
Every candidate for U.S. President from all parties (Democrat, Republican, Green, Libertarian, Socialist Workers, etc.) should present us with a strategy by which we will capture Osama Bin Laden and bring him to justice.
We, the voters, have been distracted by two wars and several fear-driven security measures that have failed to capture this man and bring resolution to the collective loss we experienced six years ago.
The United States needs a plan that will successfully capture Osama Bin Laden and send him to the International Criminal Court where he will be found guilty. Under this scenario, the Rule of Law will defeat the world’s number one maverick terrorist and set an example for other global actors who are considering similar heinous actions.
