That Pesky Bin Laden

Here is the latest on the search for bin Laden from the NY Times:

More than three years after the Sept. 11 attacks on the Pentagon and New York transformed Osama bin Laden into the most wanted man in the world, the search for him remains stalled, frustrated by the remote topography of his likely Pakistani sanctuary, stymied by a Qaeda network that remains well financed and disciplined, sidetracked by the distractions of the Iraq war, and, perhaps most significantly, limited by deep suspicion of the United States among Pakistanis.

That description makes it sound as if the challenge here is really a worldwide law enforcement issue that requires focus and diplomacy. So why is it considered so offensive to make that point?

Concentration is important!
