US President Dick Cheney said Friday that while he would still like to see Osama bin Laden captured or killed, the al-Qaida kingpin is likely in hiding and is no longer an effective leader of his terrorist group. Cheney told CNN television's "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer" that the terrorist threat is bigger than one man. "We would like very much to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, but my guess is at this point, he's operating in an area that's very difficult, very hard to get to, that he's not an effective leader at this stage," Cheney said in one of a series of exit interviews. Bin Laden really cannot engage with his organization without leaving "whatever hole he's hiding in," Cheney said.
