Washington - The Bush administration employed frontier imagery to paint a bull's-eye on Osama bin Laden yesterday as President George W. Bush said the elusive Islamic radical was "wanted dead or alive."

As Bush did so, the president's chief spokesman said a long-standing federal ban on political assassination does not limit the government's options to act "in self-defense."

I have no timetable in mind...I don't care. Dead or alive, either way. I mean, I -- it doesn't matter to me.

About 10 hours before he died Monday, Gov. Mel Carnahan remarked to his staff that he was going to be stuck in wet weather all day, including during his evening flight to a New Madrid town meeting. A few hours later, he told a public radio reporter that he'd had a good life.

Ashcroft is a cheerleader for the death penalty at every turn. Bush says that he sees no need for a moratorium on federal executions. He almost certainly would not have granted a federal inmate the six-month stay of execution that Clinton did pending review of gaping racial disparities in those given the federal death penalty.

As a senator, John Ashcroft backed a Missouri bill that might make killing an abortion provider justifiable homicide.
