    ...didn't do this, or anything else, by himself.  I'm not accepting your assertions regarding what's in his heart.  I've listened to him, closely, and he is very narrow and specific in his "indictment" of the US/UK.  But even if I did credit your assertions, so what?  bin Laden is dangerous because of those who follow him, not because of the dreams in his fetid little heart.  The specific grievances he lists are what resonate with his followers, ever expanding thanks to specific actions and policies we are pursuing.  Without those grievances motivating his followers, he'd be an impotent, crooked loon alone in cave, dreaming without consequence of an imperium.
