I don’t blame G.W. Bush and Bill Clinton at all for not wanting to be seen with you at ground zero. Great opportunity for a photo-op and footage for the coming campaign video, eh Barry? BTW, where were you last two 911 memorials?
But, your lapdogs in the media and the greater mass of people who voted for you that can't wipe their own ass without government provided step-by-step instructions, or without a government check to buy toilet paper, will hail you as the Great Obama, for a few days at least. And then they'll remember that even if Osama is dead they still can't find work, their country is bankrupt and you're a still an incompetent leader.
I do applaud you for giving the gutsy order to do what should have been done a long time ago, thumbing your nose at Pakistani sovereignty in order to bring the Islamic Pig to justice……. but it's a polite Golf Clap.
And this whole "we're not at war with Islam" stupidity doesn't buy you any friends over there in the sandbox. We may not be at War with Islam, but Islam is at War with us. Get that through your thick skull, Barry. The fact is that your administration, by playing to this nonsense about 'Islamic Sensibilities' like burying Bin Laden according to Islamic custom and not wanting to rub salt in the wound of radical Islam and their terrorist folk hero, and to return to the 'beg Islam to be nice to us' policy is doing itself, and us a major disservice.
The disservice is that without evidence, no one in the Islamic World is going to believe that Bin Laden is really dead. Without evidence, the same people who burned brain cells and wasted air over your birth certificate have new grist for the conspiracy theory mill. It seems as if your administration, true to form is attempting to decide what is and what is not secret depending on what the perceived political and propaganda needs of the Administration are at any particular moment, and in the process only reinforcing what so many already think.
But, having made the right decision to get UBL you are now screwing it all up by making, or allowing your minions to make, all the wrong ones. Having scored major points in an area which was one of your biggest weaknesses, being soft on the War on Terror, you've squandered that advantage and re-opened the floodgates of conspiracy theory and charges of incompetence. UBL is said to have valiantly resisted, and the next we’re told that he was unarmed. UBL was found in part because of what happens at Gitmo and then it was painstaking intelligence work done over a series of years, like someone doing a giant jigsaw puzzle in the dark and with one hand tied behind his back. The CIA says one thing, the Pentagon another. The State Department ,which on a good day might be able to find its own collective ass with both hands and a roadmap, says something else entirely and they all contradict and step all over each other in the process.
The disinformation may be deliberate, but from here it appears as if no one in the government is on the same page, and that always leads to the conclusion that no one in Washington can muster enough intellectual firepower to burn calories, and in this political climate that's rather dangerous for a sitting President .
UBL is dead. Great, I'm proud of you. Now prove it. Release video and pictures from the raid.
