Hiding in plain sight

My last post was coincidentally about following Edgar Allen Poe’s advice, understanding the opponent through the reasoning of the opponent, not our own. This obviously applies to bin Laden physically as much as Obama politically.

Like the criminal’s action in “The Purloined Letter”, here Osama bin Laden was hiding in plain sight, next to police station, retired military, and a military school, for several years.  Why not? That is the last place WE would look. Just like the purloined letter.

With all adversaries, military or political, we conservatives need to spend more time understanding the way the opponents think if we want to win our battles. We do not think like they do.
