Let me get this straight:
A super-secret U.S. team of death-dealing operatives claims to have killed an unarmed Osama bin Laden and killed or wounded about two dozen other people in Pakistan, a nation with which we are not at war (yet), then dumped his body into the ocean saying it was custom in his homeland of Saudi Arabia—a predominately desert country—and without any objective forensics performed.
Even though several Congressmen have stated publicly that they were shown photos of the dead Osama which turned out to be fakes, the Government now tells us that this was all a victory, a great achievement and everything is now okay, although the fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya continues, as does the lethal Corexit spraying of the Gulf and the ongoing spewing of deadly radiation from the Fukushima reactors.
Despite all the celebrating over this proclaimed “achievement” over Bin Laden and his terrorists, there has been no talk of doing away with the odious Patriot Act, the Real ID Act, the Military Commissions Act or any of the other Constitution-shredding legislation rammed through a cowed and cowardly Congress and a stupefied public.
One last thought (for now): If he wasn’t armed, why didn’t they capture Osama, bring him back to stand a fair trial and prove to the world that he was behind 9/11 and that the U.S. does not pursue assassination but justice? Of course, you and I both know the answer to that one: Osama’s been dead since 2001!
