Whitey Bulger Is No Osama Bin Laden

From a Goldblog reader, referring to the Pakistani ambassador's analogy of earlier today:

As a former Boston resident, I'm well acquainted with the Whitey mythology, but not sure really that he belongs in the same category as the guy who formed and funded an international terrorist organization that carried out multiple deadly attacks on a global scale including destroy the World Trade Center.  He was a very smart criminal, adept at playing both sides against the middle as it were, but drug dealer, bank robber, classic Southie thug isn't on par with Bin Laden.  Again, though I must congratulate the Pakistani guy for a great line.
