Flip, Flop & Fly: President Bush's Shifting Concerns for Catching Osama bin Laden

"I am confident he will be brought to justice. What's happening is, is that we got U.S. forces on the hunt for not only bin Laden, but anybody who plots and plans with bin Laden. There are Afghan forces on the hunt for not only bin Laden, but those who plot and plan with him. We've got Pakistan forces on the hunt." -- President Bush, Kabul Afghanistan News Conference, March 1, 2006

"I thought it [bin Laden releasing a tape days before the 2004 election] was going to help. I thought it would help remind people that if bin Laden doesn't want Bush to be the president, something must be right with Bush." -- President Bush, Quoted by author Bill Sammon in Strategery, released February 28, 2006

"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."- President Bush, March 13, 2002

"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."- President Bush, September 13, 2001
