For anyone "just asking questions", I would love to hear the standard by which a totally non suspicious attack on Bin Laden would have gone down. Was Obama trying to hit that all important May-2nd-the-year-before-an-election benchmark? Maybe you'd like to see a few photos, except those would be photoshopped obviously. Maybe see his body, except we'd have no idea if that was him or a look alike. Maybe DNA testing, except how can we tell it actually came from his body unless Orly Taitz hand-tested it personally?

Or maybe we'll just quietly watch al-Qaeda spin into irrelevance as Bin Laden stays curiously silent.

Not to mention the 'martyr tape' that's supposed to be released shortly. All of the people crying conspiracy are seriously deluded

Wonder if it has anything to do with who's the commander-in-chief? Naaaaaaa


to the whole operation.

^ Assuming you mean Afghanistan, as Jeffrey Goldberg at The Atlantic wrote earlier today, "If President Obama is seeking a quicker exit strategy from Afghanistan--he now has one."

I assume the people who think this is a hoax really think these people are just watching the end of Celebrity Apprentice.

This is going to make the best. Movie. Ever.

History is made. And btw, it'll be interesting if they show a pic of the body to shut the conspirators up when they release the body dumping/burial.

^ Honestly I wish they wouldn't, if only on account of all the repulsive, "funny" Photoshops, YouTube remixes etc. that are sure to follow.

I work in downtown Chicago. I'll admit to feeling a bit uneasy down there today, looking up at all the skyscrapers as I was walking to work. Really unsettling feeling...

As for Bin Laden, am I sorry to hear that he's dead? No. But... I'd like to live up to the ideals of this man:

Quote:
"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
--Martin Luther King, Jr.

Pretty much how I feel in reflection. Am I glad bin Laden is dead? Sure. Are we going to see the U.S. go back to the way it used to be? Nope.

The last 10 years have been horrible for America. We have seen the government subvert the telecom industry to help it spy on its own citizens, Muslim-Americans terrorized because of their religion, a war in Iraq having nothing to do with OBL resulting in the deaths of 6,000 American servicemen and 100,000 + civilians, the TSA tinkering with your civil rights at the airport and grabbing your dick, and not to mention the government finding the legal justification for torturing detainees, assassinating American citizens in the name of counter-terror ops, and kids growing up in the Jack Bauer 2000s in a reality where torture is okay, if the good guys are doing it.

bin Laden won the war a long time ago. Killing him is more of a satisfying, but hollow victory if you look back at the events following Sept. 11th.

When I flew into LAX last year (I'm from Australia) I was really shocked by customs and airport security. They're just doing their job, obviously, but I remember the walls being like a light shade of vomit yellow, big ugly pillars, long queues of international passengers, and extremely severe men and woman ordering lines around, checking passports, doing fingerprints, etc. I understand the level of security, but for that to be the very first thing I experienced in America was a bit disheartening. Even when we tried to be casual, say hello, "we're excited", all the bullshit small talk or whatever, there was a complete non-response from the staff.
