Increasing the Osama Bounty, or Just How Clueless Are We?

News flash! For those of you that knew where Osama Bin Laden is, but just weren't going to give him up for the $29,000,000 chump change our government was offering, today is your lucky day. The bounty has been raised to $58,000,000! That'll do the trick surely.

Seriously, are we really this stupid? Do we understand their culture this poorly? No wonder we can't find the bastard. Now wonder Iraq has become such a disaster. If this move is any indication, our government doesn't have the slightest understanding of the culture east of Israel, and our chances of success there are essentially nil.

But then again, maybe some sheep herder in Afghanistan is waiting for the price to hit $60,000,000, and he just won't do it for one million less. I'm not holding my breath.
