Would McCain Rather Win Than Catch bin Laden?

On today's Situation Room, when Wolf Blitzer asked him about his vow to catch Osama bin Laden, John Mccain said, "Well, I'm not gonna telegraph a lot of the things that I'm gonna do, because then it might compromise our ability to do so. But look, I know the area. I've been there. I know war. I know how to win wars. And I know how to improve our capabilities so that we will capture Osama bin Laden...I know how to do it."

Which begs four obvious questions:

1) Is John McCain privy to some intelligence or strategy that would better our chances of capturing bin Laden?

2) If so, why hasn't he shared this information with the current administration?

3) Would he rather win the election than see bin Laden captured?

4) Also, exactly which war(s) has he won?

Would somebody in the MSM please...PLEASE ask him any/all of these?! Please? Seriously -- how many stupid things does this guy get to say before somebody with a microphone calls him on it?
