Osama captured? Naw... it's just another case of Disinformation

According to Clear Channel, Osama Bin Laden has been captured.
While I was driving this morning... I was bumping around the radio trying to find something good to listen to. Well... when I landed on 105.1 (A Clear Channel station.) the announcer came on and said, "Today's word of the day is "Captured" (Obviously for a contest) She continued, "We chose the word "Captured" to mark the monumental accomplishment that was met by President Bush this weekend in the Capture of Osama Bin Laden. Osama's capture was the vital cog in the war against terrorism."

Yup... according to Clear Channel, Osama Bin Laden has been captured.
Innocent mistake, or disinformation?

Don't mind the spin cycle, just watch all the bell and Whistles and forget the deeper cause of the problems!
Don't worry about who sold him the poison to kill people and supported the actions.
Or does the truth matter?
