It wasn't a gift--it was a con

Anonymous Liberal makes the point that the bin Laden "October Surprise" of 2004 was really a benefit to Bush, and that the Bush campaign knew it. I would add one observation--bin Laden got what he wanted, too--a much richer ground for recruiting terrorists. Bush fell right in with his goal. Did nobody in the administration wonder why they had been handed a gift like this?

Update 6-30: Apparently not.
