[McCANN - says some individuals may have something to gain by protecting bin Laden; states bin Laden's ego will not let him stay out of sight; says Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s statement about a “coalition of one” sums up the US policy toward Iraq.] [EDWARDS - says no government would want to harbor bin Laden; says the Iraqi threat must be taken seriously.] [GAFFNEY - says there are governments who would give bin Laden safe harbor; says the Russian agenda is not lined up with that of the US; asks if the US can be serious about fighting in Iraq.]
