Did We Miss Osama Again Through Incompetence?

Is this story really true? It's on Fox News so for conservatives it's a given, but can it really be true. Did the Bush administration fail in their opportunity to kill Osama bin Laden again....just two months ago? Why isn't this story being reported anywhere else?
We know, with a 70 percent level of certainty — which is huge in the world of intelligence — that in August of 2007, bin Laden was in a convoy headed south from Tora Bora. We had his butt, on camera, on satellite. We were listening to his conversations. We had the world’s best hunters/killers — Seal Team 6 — nearby. We had the world class Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) coordinating with the CIA and other agencies. We had unmanned drones overhead with missiles on their wings; we had the best Air Force on the planet, begging to drop one on the terrorist. We had him in our sights; we had done it. Nice job again guys — now, pull the damn trigger.

Unbelievably, and in my opinion, criminally, we did not kill Usama bin Laden.

This is probably just another instance of a story made up by an unpatriotic, America-hating, phony soldier. Or, it's another example of Bush incompetence. Which is more likely?
