I should be holding a glass of champagne – but I’m not.
If anyone should celebrate the demise of Osama outside the immediately bereaved of 9/11 it is a doctor with “Ground Zero” lungs and a playwright whose opening night was cancelled – complete with celebrities, pols, sympathetic press, etc.
I didn’t complain for three years because my loss was trivial in contrast to the horror of families assaulted by the images of their loved ones’ last moments.
I’m a playwright. I can make that very vivid and real for you, but I shan’t. Some of you may be the 9/11 bereaved, and the announced demise of Osama Bin Laden has already brought it all back in full and tragic technicolour.
To you I apologize for the following, but the person in the Oval Office has lost the last shred of possible credibility with the latest clumsy attempt to silence the birthers.
The announcement of OBL’s demise in a special ops sounds like a desperate attempt at damage control.
Then there’s BHO’s talent for disposing of evidence. In his life story the bodies all disappear.
I know. But for a man who shall be nameless for his own safety’s sake, and the NYPD, I would have “disappeared” too. I have the temerity to speak up for Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, ie, the American Constitution, in a Soros/Move on.org NY district. And by Life, I mean pre-natal human life, developing in utero, because without Life, there ain’t no Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Obama’s supporters were “picking off” the trouble makers.
And now for Osama…
BHO has no credibility for starters.
That OBL is found and shot at the zenith of BHO’s dubious “term of office” is the first flag.
That the Mid East is rocking with tension and the death of OBL is the match to set the global jihad in motion in flames is another flag.
That, thanks to the EUSSR and BHO the jihadists are now camped in force on Western ground is another flag.
And then there’s Obama’s skill in disposing of corpses – his mother’s, his grandmother’s incinerated along with white DNA and dumped unceremoniously off a cliff. And now Osama’s.
And why believe anything from BHO’s cohorts in the WH – the “birth cert” is a forgery and a bad one at that. The price of “affirmative action” and “intellectual” awards on the basis of skin colour or sexual orientation.
Again, as with everything in BHO’s shadowy, undocumented, unconfirmed life, there are more questions than answers, factoids than facts, spin than objective analysis. By “factoid” I mean unsubstantiated statement and/or half truth.
“The stealth U.S. operation played out in a city with a strong Pakistani military presence and without notice from Washington.”
“Instead, Obama signed an order on Friday for the team of SEALs to chopper onto the compound under the cover of darkness.”
Obama and his national security team monitored the strike, watching and listening nervously and in near silence from the Situation Room as it all unfolded.
“The minutes passed like days,” White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said.”
- Does the USA have any agreement with Pakistan allowing us to invade Pakistan air space? If yes, where was the strong Pakistani military presence, and if not –
- Is Obama as contemptuous of International Law as he is of the American Constitution.
- How could this operation go ahead “without notice from Washington” – when “Washington” was watching every step unfold and Obama “signed the order on Friday for the team of SEALs to chopper onto the compound…”
- Military choppers make a racket. Were the occupants of OBL’s Abbotabad “redoubt” too stoned on khat to be aware of their arrival, take pre-emptive action and/or call the so called Pakistani “military presence.” Bodies rappelling down from helicopters are easy pickings. If this action was indeed bona fide then God bless our SEALS.
