Albright - Bush May Be
Planning Bin Laden
'October Surprise'

It was bad enough on Monday when Washington state Congressman "Baghdad" Jim McDermott suggested that President Bush could have captured Saddam Hussein long ago, but moved only when the news would have had maximum political effect.
But now, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is telling reporters that the Bush administration may already have captured Osama bin Laden and will release the news just before next year's presidential election.
On Fox News Channel's "Special Report with Brit Hume," Roll Call reporter Morton Kondracke recounted Albright's comments to him during an encounter before Tuesday night's broadcast, while she was waiting in the green room to appear on another show.
Kondracke said the former Clinton official approached him and asked, "Do you suppose that the Bush administration has Osama bin Laden hidden away somewhere and will bring him out before the election?"
Kondracke said that Albright didn't seem to be joking, explaining, "She was not smiling."
He shot back, "You can't seriously believe that."
Albright replied that she thought a bin Laden October Surprise orchestrated by Bush was "a possibility."
Reacting to Albright's bizarre outburst, former Reagan administration drug czar Bill Bennett told Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes": "It's nuts. It's staggering. It's paranoid.
"Maybe this is the style of thinking she'd grown accustomed to in the Clinton administration," he added. "Shame on her for saying that, as a former secretary of state of the United States."
From Tim Kugel
If this were used as military deception - to encourage supporters of terror to "out" themselves and be killed - these turkeys would gobble a different tune (and for that mater, if Mort Kondrake or Bill Bennett were reliable sources, then Nixon was Venus and Mitchell was Aphrodite).
As for the election - what election?
Come on. We don't have elections anymore.
