So I was checking out the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list today just to see who’s new and what’s changed, and I saw Osama Bin Laden (or Usama as the Fibbers have him tagged) and I wondered, what’s the point of including him on the 10 most wanted list? Am I to be vigilant as I shop for new socks at Target to make sure he’s not slinking through the food court?
I’ve always thought of the Most Wanted list as a PR tool for the FBI. They put those on there who’s capture is soon likely to make themselves seem to be stopping the worst offenders out there. I doubt highly that the FBI is about to desend on Pakistan in blacked out SUV’s any time soon, so what purpose does this seem to serve? I’m not really going GQ on here, as I figured this was more an opinion stlye inquiry.
