I don't think the US wants to catch BL right now. I think they're more
concerned with the Jihadi movement he represents. I think they want to
cripple Jihadi-supportive governments and reduce Jihadi financing.
Were BL gone, they'd have a harder time getting Muslim moderates
to support things like bombing Afghanistan and closing down Islamic
charities with suspicious associations.
