By the time you read this blog post, it will be hopelessly out of date. That’s how fast the story of the Obama administration’s appallingly incompetent handling of the aftermath of the Osama bin Laden assassination is moving. In all my years observing American politics I’ve never seen anything even remotely like this. It’s not just a train wreck viewed in slow motion, it’s a midair collision of all the airplanes used in “The Aviator.”
Most of the nation is still celebrating the elimination of Osama bin Laden, the monster behind one of the worst days in American history. Some are relieved bin Laden can no longer aid the jihadist cause; others take pleasure in knowing the suffering he caused us has been partially repaid.
As President Obama savors the high point of his time in office to date, there are some questions that he needs to answer to the American people. Here are just a few of them.
Neither Rhyme nor Reason: Olbermann Demonizes Slip of the Tongue—After Making the Same Mistake Himself
You say Obama, I say Osama. I say Obama, you say Osama. Obama Osama, Obama Osama—let’s call the whole thing off.
Osama Bin Laden turned out in the end to be the Islamic perversion of the Wizard of Oz – a pathetic old man hiding behind a ‘curtain’ of deception – although the evil he perpetrated was no fantasy. Bin Laden was a larger than life hero to Islamists, whom he led and inspired with messages of hate against the infidel West to carry out the 9/11 attacks on the United States and countless other mass-casualty attacks killing innocent men, women and children in the name of Allah.
We knew this was coming. No American victory in this day and age, not even the long-overdue death of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden, is safe from political hijacking by the useful idiots of the Left. Within hours of hearing the good news, left-wing Daily Beast flunky Peter Beinart took to the keyboard to declare that the War on Terror is finally over.
Last week, you couldn’t turn on the television or get on the web without being subjected to some sort of coverage of the royal wedding. It was truly a global phenomenon, and the American fascination with it was remarkable. What other event would prompt 22.8 million viewers across the country to wake up at an ungodly hour to witness an event taking place thousands of miles away? (Worldwide viewership is estimated at a staggering 2 billion, reportedly making the ceremony the most-watched event in history.)
Hallelujah! Americans gathering outside of the White House last night, shouting “USA! USA!,” were celebrating the news that Osama Bin Laden is dead – brought to justice early Sunday morning for his crimes against humanity by the bullets of U.S. Joint Special Operations Command forces in a mission ordered by President Obama. Upon taking office, President Obama had made the killing or capture of Bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda. Now we have killed the monster and captured his body.
Under President Obama’s watch, Osama bin Laden has been killed by U.S. forces abroad. Americans and everyone who values Western civilization should rejoice. And make no mistake, even though he had to be dragged kicking and screaming into action against the Islamic fundamentalists, President Obama deserves credit for ridding the world of this Islamofascist monster.
