So Where’s Osama?

A simple question for this horrific anniversary: If we’ve had so much success picking off Al Qaeda leaders with our Predator drones (and we have), and if we’ve been able to locate elusive sociopaths like Baitullah Mehsud and today’s announced snatch of Muslim Khan by the Pakistanis…Why can’t we seem to find the maximum leaders, Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zwahiri, as well as the Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar?

Is it possible that our Pakistani allies have been offering better intelligence cooperation when it comes to capturing Pakistani Taliban leaders (like Mehsud) than the AQ top guns or the Afghan Taliban? Just asking.
