Disbanding the CIA's bin Laden group: the bright side

There's a bit of a fuss about the closing of the CIA's bin Laden unit. Like most people, I have no way of knowing whether this is good or not. If whatsisname were still Director I'd assume it was very bad, but nowadays I can't say. I do think it has a bright side though.

bin Laden, it's been reported, is a typical zealot megalomaniac. The way to enrage him is to suggest that he's no longer important, that he's 'yesterday's news'. If he feels neglected, he may try to raise his profile. That's how he'll be caught ....
