I can see why he said it as far as 'voter concern' but it's something that boggles the mind if he has to rely on having words put in his mouth for the sake of being elected.

Muslims across the world, ones in agreement that Bin Laden is out of line or not, view this as an attack on a fellow Muslim by a foreign power. It can do nothing to waylay their fears of being targeted or being swept up in the hunt to hear those exact words being bandied about. It can only bring even more condemnation from foreign countries & possible added woes to an already precarious situation.

Better to address terrorism as an entity than to keep Bin Laden as the poster boy IMO.

As well, McCain constantly one ups it by not only saying he'll find bin Laden and kill him, but that he already knows how.
I mention Obama since it seems a foregone conclusion that he'll be the next President as each day passes. McCain lost any credibility he had when he picked Palin as a running mate. What he says on the subject is as bad but not as dangerous to me than a guy who looks like the next guy in the White House saying it.
