US claim that bin laden is near capture is politicking ...

unless... like former secretary of state madeleine albright stated many months ago, bush&co has already captured the man and now awaits a pre presidential election opportunity to pull a media stunt to show him off to gullible americans as "just apprehended".

pakistan is actually rejecting as pre-election politicking a US official's weekend claim that osama bin laden was close to being captured. he is believed to be hiding somewhere along the mountainous 2,450-kilometre (1,500-mile) border between afghanistan and pakistan, where conservative pashtun tribes hostile to the united states are sympathetic to islamic extremists.
