Election Surprise...

Tom Ridge says Al Qaeda will try to influence the elections with an attack, but will it be the Bush Administration that uses Osama to influence the election?

The New Republic says that the administration is urging Pakistan to catch Osama. But they have a date in mind...

The New Republic: July Surprise. Bush administration officials have told their Pakistani counterparts they have a date in mind for announcing this achievement: "The last ten days of July deadline has been given repeatedly by visitors to Islamabad and during [ul-Haq's] meetings in Washington." Says McCormack: "I'm aware of no such comment." But according to this ISI official, a White House aide told ul-Haq last spring that "it would be best if the arrest or killing of [any] HVT were announced on twenty-six, twenty-seven, or twenty-eight July"--the first three days of the Democratic National Convention in Boston.
