    This is pretty interesting, apparently Osama Bin Laden has been linked to a lot of terrorist incidents, however the FBI is not able to link him to the 9/11 stuff..thought that was why we went after him in Afghanistan??

    The FBI says on its Bin Laden web page that Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998 bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. According to the FBI, these attacks killed over 200 people. The FBI concludes its reason for “wanting†Bin Laden by saying, “In addition, Bin Laden is a suspect in other terrorists attacks throughout the world.â€

    On June 5, 2006, the Muckraker Report contacted the FBI Headquarters, (202) 324-3000, to learn why Bin Laden’s Most Wanted poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden’s Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.â€

    Surprised by the ease in which this FBI spokesman made such an astonishing statement, I asked, “How this was possible?†Tomb continued, “Bin Laden has not been formally charged in connection to 9/11.†I asked, “How does that work?†Tomb continued, “The FBI gathers evidence. Once evidence is gathered, it is turned over to the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice than decides whether it has enough evidence to present to a federal grand jury. In the case of the 1998 United States Embassies being bombed, Bin Laden has been formally indicted and charged by a grand jury. He has not been formally indicted and charged in connection with 9/11 because the FBI has no hard evidence connecte Bin Laden to 9/11.â€
