Bush Missed Bin Laden, Lied About It
Document: Bin Laden Evaded U.S. Forces
The document, provided to The Associated Press in response to a Freedom of Information request, says the unidentified detainee "assisted in the escape of Osama bin Laden from Tora Bora." It is the first definitive statement from the Pentagon that bin Laden was at Tora Bora and evaded U.S. pursuers.Again, Bush lied about Kerry. Kerry told the truth, Bush called him a liar for it. Kerry told the truth about Bush and Bin Laden, as he did with social security. From fake news, to fake reporters, to propaganda, to out and out lies. This administration has no shame, and no integrity whatsoever.
The events at Tora Bora were a point of contention during last year's presidential race, and Bush as well as Vice President Dick Cheney asserted that commanders did not know whether bin Laden was there when U.S. and allied Afghan forces attacked the area in December 2001.
Sen. John Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee, lambasted Bush during the campaign for having missed a chance to capture or kill bin Laden at Tora Bora, a mountainous area along the Pakistan border that became al-Qaida's last stand in Afghanistan.
