White House: 'Hunt not downgraded' after Reid highlights disbanded bin Laden unitOK, so my question is, how much more of a "reduction of effort" could it possibly have been?
Spokesman Tony Snow is denying charges that the White House has downgraded its search for Osama bin Laden after a key CIA unit specifically targeting the terrorist kingpin was earlier disbanded, RAW STORY has learned.
In his daily briefing today, Snow addressed accusations by Senate minority leader Harry Reid (D-Nv.) that the disbanding was an example of "misplaced priorities in the Bush administration."
"The notion that the president has shut down a program designed to capture Osama bin Laden is utterly without foundation," Snow said. "It was a reorganization, not a reduction in effort and commitment."
Because, Tony, you know...
"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."In other words, how much less could Bush have cared about Osama if he's "truly not concerned about him."?

"I am truly not that concerned about him."

I'm not concerned about monkeys flying out of my butt. I can't imagine being less concerned about that.
I'm not concerned about an asteroid hitting the planet: it hits, we're dead, the math is simple, and we may not even know it's happened. I can't imagine being less concerned about that.
I'm not concerned about the standings in the Australian Rules Football league (until I meet an Aussie chick, of course). I can't imagine being less concerned about that.
So seriously, Tony, how much less than zero is this reduction going to be? Cuz, even tho you said it wasn't a reduction, we all know you're fulla shit.
