Su-prise, Su-prise!

Well, another "fact" shot down. Remember the old canard (repeated over and over) that we tracked down bin Laden via a satellite phone he was using, and that the leaking of this fact blew and intelligence operation? WaPo:
President Bush asserted this week that the news media published a U.S. government leak in 1998 about Osama bin Laden's use of a satellite phone, alerting the al Qaeda leader to government monitoring and prompting him to abandon the device.

The story of the vicious leak that destroyed a valuable intelligence operation was first reported by a best-selling book, validated by the Sept. 11 commission and then repeated by the president.
Well, on cue, it turns out that this "fact" is a myth.

Why would we think that a terrorist operation that uses box cutters to take down the twin towers, would use technology to communicate. Undoubtedly, bin Laden communicates with his people by something like carrier pigeon, indigenous birds, that go undetected when flying overhead.

And once again, we see Bush lying to the world.
