Queen Bee let off lightly

Not content with imposing a mild four-year imprisonment sentence on Jemaah Islamiya kingpin Abu Bakar Baashir, Indonesia reduced it by one year this week.

So two years after Bush started his war on terror, Osama and Ayman al Zawahiri are still at large. Masood Azhar and Hafiz Saeed are roaming around freely in Pakistan. Mulla Omar was seen praying in Quetta. Abu Bakar Baashir is being handled with kid gloves in Jakarta. Not only are the queen bees free, they are actually raising new beehives.

A few worker bees and drones have been captured, but the US government seems to be losing its will to tackle the queen bees.
