We wuz robbed

Do you still doubt Obama’s genius? Could anyone else take the greatest PR coup in a century and turn it to shit in three days?

Not releasing the photos. And giving some sanctimonious bullshit waffle about why — before he goes to stand at Ground Zero for his 2012 election photo op.

He doesn’t own those photos. We do. We were wronged as a people and we have the right to see justice done. We watched office workers jump off the top floor of a skyscraper — jump rather than burn — and we have a right to see the dead face of the monster who ordered it.

This viewing of dead monsters has a long tradition. That’s Dillinger up there. My grandmother was one of the thousands who filed past the bodies of Bonnie and Clyde (she said they were dirty — old dirt, like people who hadn’t washed in a very long time).

Call it primitive, but it’s way down in our DNA. Things won’t be right until we see his face. Dead on a slab.

I thought that was the whole point of sending in the SEALs instead of bombing the complex flat.

Yup, Obama screwed it up. No body, no pics, no video, no food for the pigs on the farm. And all that had to be decided AFTER the hit went down, when he’s known for more than 8 months that it was coming.

Dead pool: Jackie Cooper has died. He was 88.

I’ve been told I’m simple and naive—which I am, but beside the point for this—but I can’t believe it never occurred to anyone in our gummit that they might want to show some proof. Any proof. I don’t mean to be a Deather, and I’m not, really, but…Nuthin’? You got nuthin’? Hell people don’t believe I went to Pismo for vacay unless I bring back a picture of me at the beach.

All the people who come out of this looking good (the military, Panetta etc.) are competent people who’ve been doing this sort of stuff forever. The ones that are doing the Keystone Kops routine are Obama-era. Someone should have stuffed Joe Biden in a cupboard somewhere. As I read somewhere else: silence is golden, duct tape is silver.

I don’t know if it will make a huge difference to the conspiracy-mongers. Conspiracy theories are by their very nature unfalsifiable (which is what makes them so infuriating.) These days if you opened up a Lenin-style mausoleum for him*, never mind a trudge past a window, you’d still have the loons saying, “but…”

* and stuck him on a rotisserie like in a kebab shop

Let the Pakies leak it to the world that bin Laden was snatched from under their very eyes….and let his wife and kids tell Reuters that bin Laden took two in the hat on his way out the door…

And then stand around with a “Who? Us? I have no confirmation of that!” kind of non denial denial for the next several years.

For steve:
Difficult to do with the broke chopper sitting there. Of course, that MAY have been planned to make sure the appropriate people KNEW who did it. But the propeller heads seem to think the bird did not get that way intentionally, based on how the remains look. And it would appear that they have seen more than one chopper post-crash.

Sending in the SEALs has the advantage that they can pick up a few souvenirs on the way out–like hard drives, documents, and other handy intelligence fodder. I don’t know if that occurred to the TOTUS, but the pros must have taken it into consideration. Also, with a bombing run you’ve no idea if you actually flattened the guy–a little bird might have whispered in his ear. I hear it happens a lot in Pakistan.

I’d expect nothing less from the asswipe.

And now, he’s going to ground zero for the first time to do a victory dance/photo op on the graves of 3000 people to show what a bad ass he is.

Then, expect a Hollywood production by fall.

We’ll see how Obama labored and choreographed the whole plan.

Scene: somewhere in Pakistan, night of raid. Sound of choppers and yelling in background.

Obama: [looks at monitor, then takes off coat and throws to ground] I’m going in there. These kids don’t know what they’re doing! I’ve worked too hard to let Osama slip through my fingers again!

[to aide] Get me my gear, PRONTO!

Aide: [moving to tent door to stop him] Sir NO! We can’t afford to lose you now! You should stay to coordinate…

Obama: [strapping on kevlar vest] I need to be there! Get out of my way or I’ll…

Hillary: [sneaks up from behind and knocks him out with rifle butt] I hated to have to do that.

Leon: It was the only way Hillary, the only way. [sobs] God help us – I hope we made the right decision. What if he’s right?

I read some historical/social snippet a long time ago that public hangings in the old west days were not actually joyful occasions for the town-folk.

People didn’t go to watch with bloodlust, thinking it would be a party. They went to see justice done, and to give affirmation to the sanctity of civil society.

You know, they use to hang horse thieves. I’ve always thought we should hang car thieves.

What are you going to tell your Allies in the ‘war of terror’?

We shot Osama! We Shot Osama! No, we ditched the body asap in the Ocean. We gave him a nice Muslim funeral.
We were scared of what the Muslims might think you know.
No – we can’t show you the fotos, or the videos … sorry. You are not really our Allies, but just tag alongs to help us out … we don’t respect you enough.

But trust us, we shot Osama … and please stick with us through this phony war of terror.

The question as to whether or not Bin Laden needed dialysis or not is undetermined. He stated that he didn’t, and no one ever proved that he did.

That’s Ok …. even the CIA published info that he was sick and receiving dialysis during the events leading up to 9/11.

When a BBC reporter first asked him about his part with planes flying into building, he didn’t know what was going on, and denied involvment with it.

Even your FBI has publically stated that they have no evidence that Osama Bin Laden was involved in 9/11.

Although I do know a few Jewish colleagues that were involved.

But don’t worry, everyone knows that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11.

By *dithering* on whether to release the photos, Obumbles ensured that whatever decision he made was going to be the wrong one. Even if he released it now it would appear suspect.

I wanted to see the pic, but if he had just been clear from the outset that there wouldn’t be any public release then I might have felt a little better about it.

The latest meme from the pansies is that the feed going out (in the middle of a firefight in Paki-fucking-stan) is suspicious. Because you remember how Ernie Pyle’s Twitter feed was such a hit back in 1944?

They said the Revolution would be televised. They never said small unit ops deep in the world’s rectum, at night, would be, and certainly not live. Call of Duty is a video game. Twats.

You stole my post for today! Excellent — and spot-on — sentiments. Paraphrasing, Ann Coulter said it best, “Our taxes paid for the bullet that blew his brain pan apart, so they’re our photos.

On the subject of same, here’s an idea for you: photo-shop The PantLoad’s head onto Bush in that great picture of “W” and the fireman at GZ back in 2001. That ought to be a scream — and typical of the stolen glory that The Waffler wants glom onto!

First thing that was on the news on the BBC was that a cruise missile had struck the Pentagon, then it was a truck bomb … then it was a plane.

But with all those witnesses, you know, everyone knew what it was … with video footage to back it up.

Just like the killing of Bin Laden.
I wonder if he had a bit of ‘freezer burn’?
