I have not written about the death of Osama Bin Laden, because for me, a decade later, it is more of a shrugging of the shoulders sentiment that I have. If they had captured and killed him in the first few weeks, or even months, it would have the impact of a job well-done, but this much later? Yeah, I'm glad he's dead and if it were me, it wouldn't have taken 16 hours to decide to kill him, it wouldn't have taken 16 seconds. Osama Bin Laden deserved a hit squad and that's exactly what he got. The Navy Seals are professionals who know how to neutralize a target in short order and they were used under the guise of warfare to execute an assassination. When was Osama Bin Laden read his Miranda rights? Hey, I'm glad they did it, but by Obama's own assessment, this was nothing short of an assassination and the idea that he would so quickly head out to spike the football and go into a victory dance over it is disgusting.
A leftist will always tell you what he is doing by denying it to your face. Therefore, Obama tells us he is not spiking the football, or using this to his political advantage, then quickly puts together a ceremony where he lays a wreath at Ground Zero...for what? It isn't the anniversary of 9/11. It isn't the end of any war in Afghanistan or Iraq. It isn't a victory over an army or a nation. The only thing that there is to celebrate is the assassination of Osama Bin Laden, an act that he takes full credit for. A moment that he has chosen to secure all to himself as if there were no human Navy Seals involved, but only mere Obamabots doing his distinct and direct bidding.
Barack Obama has taken the advantages of "enhanced interrogation techniques" and the prisoners in Guantanamo Bay to achieve a photo op for his re-election campaign. He has done so after taking the political high-ground of denouncing such things as war crimes, as un-American and yet he sits atop the corpses of the men and women who fought to secure these prisoners and supply this evidence and raises the American flag, burying the staff into the bodies of those who sacrificed everything and thumps his chest with manly fervor.
The press, who daily spent gallons of ink defaming the policies of the Bush Administration as evil and grotesque clamor aboard the Barack Obama murder train and applaud with great enthusiasm. They beam with approval at his swagger, at his "gutsy" call, at his rugged determination to secure the body of Osama Bin Laden. What jackals they are, what Monty Python-like minstrels the press is for this pathetic attempt to rehabilitate the character of this dismal loser, to recast him not as a brilliant bracket picker, but as a barrel-chested leader of black ops. He is a fool and a buffoon and no amount of newsprint to the contrary can cover up the pile of dung they have helped to place on the nations living room carpet.
Yes, kill Osama Bin Laden, kill him dead, shoot him with your own hands. Have the SEALS arrest the criminal, bring him on board any Navy ship, hold him out at sea until Marine One can land and you can arrive with a 1911 and put the SOB out of his misery, then hold your blood-sprayed hand up that still grips the pistol and tell me about your "gutsy" call. Or, just leave it to the professionals and thank God every day that there was a George Bush and Guantanamo and "enhanced interrogation techniques" and you didn't have to lift a filthy little finger until you pointed it to your own chest on national television.
