This would explain it

WorldNetDaily: "Why hasn't Osama bin Laden's terror network executed an attack on U.S. soil since 9-11?

Simple, says Dr. Jack Wheeler, creator of an acclaimed intelligence website dubbed 'the oasis for rational conservatives': The U.S. has threatened to nuke the Muslim holy city of Mecca should the terror leader strike America again.

...Writes Wheeler in his members-only column: "There has been a rumor floating in the Washington ether for some time now that George Bush has figured out what Sword of Damocles is suspended over Osama bin Laden's head. It's whispered among Capitol Hill staffers on the intel and armed services committees; White House NSC (National Security Council) members clam up tight if you begin to hint at it; and State Department neo-cons love to give their liberal counterparts cardiac arrhythmia by elliptically conversing about it in their presence."

Of course I have no idea whether this is true or not, but the mere possibility would surely constitute a vulnerable spot for the Islamofascists. Do they really want to triple-dog-dare the Texas cowboy in the White House? (OK, the Hugh Hewitt as Ralphie meme has infected my brain.)

How about a non-nuclear option: Round up every C-130 at America's disposal, fill them floor to ceiling with pig's dung, and carpet-bomb Mecca with it?
