The White House was wrong to reject Bin Laden's truce offer...

Supposedly Bin Laden offered to call off the dogs if we were to leave Iraq and Afghanistan. Well, aren't we in the process of leaving Iraq and Afghanistan?

Why not accept Bin Laden's offer and tell him we'll get out of Iraq and Afghanistan as soon as we can and that, once we're out, we expect him to foreswear terror attacks against the United States?

We'll have to put up with attacks while we're still there, but once we're out, we ought to be terror-free for the indefinite future...

And.... if he attacks us after we've left Iraq and Afghanistan, then there ought not to be any qualms about doing whatever it takes to rid the world of someone who so obviously can't be trusted to keep his word.... right?
