ABC out to get Bush

by on December 17th, 2003

With the capture of Saddam Hussein last Saturday, ABC News is quick to point out that Osama bin Laden is still at large. Indeed, in this article referencing Bush’s interview last night with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, they make it clear that bin Laden has yet to be captured with the headline, “Now That Saddam Is Captured, Where’s Bin Laden?”

And if you tuned in last night thinking the interview would be a discussion of Saddam’s capture, much like they billed it, you quickly found out that it contained little new information other than possibly Bush’s stance on the death penalty for Saddam (for it) and gay marriage (against it).

Instead, WMD and the death of American troops consumed much of the hour-long special, with Sawyer pressing the WMD question so much so that Bush had to twice exclaim his answer would not change no matter how many times he were asked. Bush mentioned that intelligence from many nations prior to the Iraq war corroborated ours in showing that Saddam had WMD. But to Sawyer, since we haven’t found them yet they never existed at all.

It all reminds me of the capture of a certain Iraqi dictator. Oops. I’ve said too much.
