Bust a deal, face the wheel
The US might not pay up on the reward promised for information leading to the capture, arrest, or proof of death of Osama bin Laden....
From NPR.org -- Under a special program started by Congress back in 1984, the U.S. government has paid $100 million to dozens of people who helped bring international terrorists to justice. But the reward for the most notorious terrorist of all — Osama bin Laden — could go unclaimed.
Even if there isn't one person who deserves the $27million reward, why not donate it to the SEAL Team-6 program? It might go a long way toward paying for that chopper that went down. Or it might fund a raid to get Ayman al-Zawahiri, the putative Al Qaeda #1 now that bin Laden as assumed the temperature of sea water. Either way, the US shouldn't shirk on it's promise.
