Confusion In the White House? What Is Going On!

Leave it to the Obama administration to turn good thing, Osama bin Ladens's demise, into a circle jerk of misinformation.  When you are the most powerful man in the free world, (for the time being) you should be in a position to control your staff and to control what is and what is not released in the media.  If I were President at the time, here is what I would have released to the media. On Sunday 1 May, 2011, Osama bin Laden was located in Abbottabad Pakistan, just yards from a Pakistan Military Academy.  During the operation, which was conducted by the United States Navy Seals and the CIA, Osama bin Laden was shot and killed. The body was recovered and later buried at sea by the Navy as per Muslim beliefs. No casualties and no one was wounded during the operation. One helicopter was lost due to mechanical troubles. Photographs of bin Laden will be released at the date and time to be determined. All other information is classified and will not be released at the proper time. It was for all practical purposes a flawless operation for our Navy Seals and CIA. This is the information I would have released, no more than that for the time being. However that would have been my release, and I am sticking to it. 
However that is not the case with the Obama White House, now all kinds of misleading information has been  released from the White House, confusing information and confusing everyone in the process. It just seems like the story changes daily.  First, OBL had a weapon, next Osama bin Laden  did not have a weapon, but was shot while resisting. Which was a very good thing. One White House official said that OBL had used his wife as a human shield and she was killed during the firefight; while another official indicated the dead woman was Osama bin Laden’s fifth and youngest wife, a 27-year-old from Yemen named Amal al-Sadah.  Yesterday the United States government changed the story again,  Jay Carney, Obama's White House press secretary, said that bin Laden’s wife was in the same room as her husband but was not killed. She was shot in the leg after “rushing” at special forces.

President Obama today decided not to release pictures of Bin Laden's corpse, saying "we do not trot this stuff out as trophies". Do you remember when the American contractors were shot and killed; their bodies were burned and dismembered, in addition their bodies were dragged through the streets and strung up on a bridge for all the whole world to see; and you do not want to show the body of Osama bin Laden. You said "what if Al-Qaeda killed one of our military men or citizens and showed the bodies on television."  Have you forgotten about reporter, Daniel Pearl, beheaded and the video released for the world to see.

Here is the partial transcript of a pre-recorded interview with CBS's 60 Minutes, President Obama answered questions on why he had chosen not to release graphic images of Osama Bin Laden.

STEVE KROFT: Did you see the pictures?


KROFT: What was your reaction when you saw them?

OBAMA: It was him.

KROFT: Why haven't you released them?

OBAMA: You know, we discussed this internally. Keep in mind that we are absolutely certain this was him. We've done DNA sampling and testing. And so there is no doubt that we killed Osama Bin Laden. It is important for us to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence. As a propaganda tool. You know, that's not who we are.
You know, we don't trot out this stuff as trophies. You know, the fact of the matter is this was somebody who was deserving of the justice that he received. And I think-- Americans and people around the world are glad that he's gone. But we don't need to spike the football. And I think that given the graphic nature of these photos, it would create some national security risk. And I've discussed this with Bob Gates and Hillary Clinton and my intelligence teams and they all agree.

KROFT: There are people in Pakistan, for example, who say, "Look, this is all a lie. Obama, this is another American trick. Osama's not dead."

OBAMA: You know, the truth is that and we - we're monitoring worldwide reaction. There's no doubt that Bin Laden is dead. Certainly there's no doubt among Al Qaeda members that he is dead. And so we don't think that a photograph in and of itself is going to make any difference. There are going be some folks who deny it. The fact of the matter is, you will not see bin Laden walking on this Earth again.

OBL has killed 3000 American Citizens, and is responsible for the death of thousand of other innocent people and you refuse to show his remains because you do not want to anger anyone (Muslim Extremist) quit appeasing these guys, they do not care one bit about if you show or do not show bin Laden's body. Take a lesson from your predecessor President George W. Bush, Oday and Qusay Hussein who met a tow missile, face to face, it killed them both grave yard dead, they washed them up a little tossed a white sheet over what was left and showed the world that the sons of the Butcher of Baghdad were dead.

Oday and Qusay Hussein
The American people and others who lost relatives on 9/11 have the right to see the photographic evidence that the Pig, bin Laden is dead. I do not know why you are afraid to release the pictures. You are again creating an atmosphere that you may be hiding something, I believe OBL is dead;  you have created the same problem when you did not release your birth certificate, you are placing your administration in the same position of defending yourself. The ball was is in your court, now you have left the door open for criticism, and rightly so. For once do what the American people want, release the photographs and get your facts straight about the assault on bin Laden's compound. It sounds better when everyone is on the same page. 

That's my thoughts on this media circus, I hope that for the sake of our country we get things straight. The media has been doing the Monday morning quarterbacking all day, what if is, what if that...Osama was murdered, he did not have a weapon. Just unbelievable crap being reported. OBL was a murdering PIG and he deserved to die like he did, shot in the head. In addition, he was not a Muslim, he murdered Muslim's, Most Muslims are grateful that he is dead.   That's my take, whats yours?

Until next time....God Bless You and May God Bless America,
