I read the highly inadequate 9/11 Commission Report once before, but somehow this never stuck with me the first time around. I was doing some research, reading parts of it again, and what do I find on page 127? Priceless: During September and October, the tribals claimed to have tried at least four times to ambush Bin Ladin. Senior CIA officials doubted whether any of these ambush attempts had actually occurred. But the tribals did seem to have success in reporting where Bin Ladin was.  This information was more useful than it had been in the past; since the August missile strikes, Bin Ladin had taken to moving his sleeping place fre- quently and unpredictably and had added new bodyguards. Worst of all, al Qaeda's senior leadership had stopped using a particular means of communication almost immediately after a leak to the Washington Times.  This made it much more difficult for the National Security Agency to intercept his conversations. But since the tribals seemed to know where Bin Ladin was or would be, an alternative to capturing Bin Ladin would be to mark his location and call in another round of missile strikes. Now, i'll be the first to admit this notion that UBL suddenly stopped using satphones because of the U.S. press is ridiculous ... But, what in the world was the Moonie Times doing printing such information? Still, you gotta love the irony in past posts like these. Volume III, exhibit 21A of the mantra, "different when your guys do it, huh?"
