Doubt, criticsim, vigilant opposition are all healthy signs of a democracy. If they are not present it is just some version of Al queada

Way to avoid the direct question

You're right, but educated doubt, educated criticism, and informed opposition are healthy signs of a demorcacy.

Otherwise you're just the Tea Party.

Here's a summary of the SEAL raid from Popular Science:

Before the Raid, SEALs Rehearsed in a Full-Scale Replica of the Bin Laden Compound | Popular Science


They mention the possible stealth/secret helicopter debris, too:

It is also possible for a celebrity to fake a death and have the whole world believe it.

One more thought: Before what we know as World Music appeared, a band in Germany did a series of recordings called "Ethnic Forgeries." That was simiilar to the U2/Passengers project.

They created an album of a tribe or group that may or may not exisist. And people bought it.


yes, this is a totally appropriate comparison.

If nothing else, then to vindicate himself and give a fat "Misson Accomplished" to all the naysayers.

How did he treat the victim's families?

but even skeptics have their limits. there is a difference between infinate questioning and hard evidence.

That Obama is a Robot remark is just silly. I don't think it is unreasonable for the American public to ask for a picture. Especially since it is a dubious war and many military lives are at stake. Was the mandate of the Iraq and Afghastan wars not to 'get OBL'.

Further, what kinda of ideological war is won by Wild West tactics and covert assinations? In fact it is just the opposite. That does not prove ideologically that one side is correct.

For those scoring at home: Obama is a robot, Osama is alive, Al-Qaeda runs the US, George Bush is the greatest president in US History, and we could have found Osama ten years earlier had we just considered the ramifications of U2's Passengers album.

I didn't say that Osama was not dead, I said it was plausable that he was not dead. Why do I bother having a discussion with either/or minds?


person 1 "so what do you do?"
person 2 "i work in non-profit"
person 1 "so you are a commie?"
person 2 "no, i work in non-profit"
brief pause
person 1 "do you hate yourself?"
perosn 2 "no, i like helping others"

person 1 <whispers> commie
