The specifics of US Policy often make an outside unsure and perplexed by the surrounding situations One prime example includes Bin Laden and the hunt for the leading terrorist among the Talibans Nonetheless despite their efforts CIA agents continually failed in their chase Significant reasons led to their failure including a lack of communication amongst the several groups searching for Laden and issues regarding policy which made one groups interest conflict or seek approval from another In the end despite a common enemy and a common goal the differing modes of actions goals and prospects among the CIA analysts Langley superiors and White House officials Perhaps the easiest way to examine the bin Laden failure is to trace back the steps leading to the chase Years before the Taliban propaganda and September 11 threats were being issued by bin Laden against American targets The CIAs analysts described bin Laden at this time as an active dangerous financier of Islamic extremism but they saw him as more a money source than a terrorist operator This is how Laden began to acquire his power US officials were naive and didnt take Ladens threats seriously This seemingly minor drawback seemed to carry dire consequences Laden realized that the US would never imagine that he could and would strike out against America if necessary To some extent the CIA analysts could be blamed for not being overly-cautious and taking the threats seriously Another hapless reason for the failure resulted from controversial proposals and beliefs about bin Laden At one time CIA officers felt they had a rare urgent sense of the menace bin Laden posed before Sept 11yet a number of controversial proposals to attack bin Laden were turned down by superiors at landley or the White House who feared the plans were poorly developed wouldnt worry or would embroil the US in Afghanistans then obscure civilwarat other times plans to track or attack bin Laden were delayed
