I'm opening the "LAO Think Tank" this morning. You are all members. Here's our first item.
I had a thought this morning while driving about. GB's show was on the radio, and they were kicking around WHY you DON'T just capture bin Laden if you are BHO. (if you didn't hear it, it was because of the legal wrangling the left would have done and BHO having to go against them) Anyway, that brought me to this thought study.
How would the world be affected IF the following were to happen,
1.) instead of killing UBL, we capture him. (or we say we did anyway)
2.) after he is captured, he RENOUNCES Islam
3.) he accepts Christianity
4.) as a Christian, he reminds his former followers about that whole, don't kill the "people of the book" thing in their Koran
Here's the exercise, and how I got to this,
If you can put John freakin' Wayne in a GD beer commercial via CGI, you can put bin Laden, on his knees in front of the POPE!!
Here's the ultimate question. Would UBL doing this cause the terrorists to stutter step, or what exactly would happen?
Would the Imams swear out a fatwah on UBL?
And if so, wouldn't THAT fatwah cause infighting?
If they're fighting each other, would they have time for us too, or would they be easier to find WHILE they are fighting each other?
I get that it's all very "Mission Impossible" (the TV show NOT the movie), but why wouldn't this work? This is the kind of stuff we did to the bad guys for decades, before the commie leftists took over the CIA and the State Department anyway.
So? Whaddya t'ink?
