Amos feels a certain kinship to this Bush hater:
An Exchange on HBO's On the Record with Bob Costas, May 9, 2003.
Michael Moore: "What happened to the search for Osama bin Laden?"
Bob Costas: "Obviously they're pursuing Osama bin Laden as we speak."
Moore: "Really? You believe that?"
Moore: "You do believe that?"
Costas: "Sure. And if they could find him, and perhaps they eventually will, they'd be gratified by that."
Moore: "You don't think they [the U.S. government] know where he is, huh?"
Bob Costas (astonished): "You think they know where Osama bin Laden is and it's hands off?"
Moore: "Absolutely, absolutely."
Moore: "Because he's funded by their friends in Saudi Arabia! He's back living with his sponsors, his benefactors. Do you think that Osama bin Laden planned 9/11 from a cave in Afghanistan? I can't get a cell signal from here to Queens! Alright, I mean, come on, let's get real about this. The guy has been on dialysis for two years. He's got failing kidneys. He wasn't in a cave in Afghanistan-"
Costas: "You think he's in Saudi Arabia?"
Costas: "Not Afghanistan, not Pakistan?"
Moore: "Well, could be Pakistan but it's, he's under the protective watch of those who have said put stop to this because-"
Costas: "Including, at least by extension, the United States? He's under the protective watch of the United States?"
Moore: "I think no, I think the United States, I think our government knows where he is and I don't think we're going to be capturing him or killing him any time soon."
