John McCain said at the debate yesterday, as he has said before, that he has some sort of secret plan to capture Bin Laden.

Obama should call him on it.  He should say :"Senator McCain says he has this great plan to capture Osama bin Laden, and he has been saying it for several months now.  Okay, he says he can't tell us what it is, because it is secret, should be classified or something.   Perhaps he could tell us whether he has revealed this plan to our current President, George W. Bush.  They are members of the same party, McCain campaigned for the guy, so certainly President Bush would take Senator McCain's calls.

Is Senator McCain saying that he has told the President his great plan, but Bush didn't think it was such a great plan and chose not to implement it?  Or is he keeping this plan from the President?

Or has he refused to tell President Bush this great plan because he is not putting his country first?  Certainly, capturing bin Laden is important, and if Senator McCain has such a great plan here, I would prefer he would tell it to our President rather than tell us he has one, but can't tell us what it is.  That is, if there really is such a plan."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
