Declaring that we must not make the mortal remains of a worthy adversary into some sort of big game trophy, President Barack Obama declined to provide any material proof to verify that al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden was the person killed by US forces in a raid on his safe-house in Pakistan on May 1.
The President of the United Stateshas assured the world that Osama bin Laden is the person we killed, said Presidential Press Secretary Jay Carney. To demand more than his word is an insult of enormous magnitude. Besides, its easy to doctor photos, falsify documents, and rig DNA tests. Why would any of these that the President might release be considered any better than his word?
Carney labeled former President Bushs displaying of the bodies of Saddam Husseins two sons the kind of insensitivity youd expect from the man, but allowed that it might have been necessary given the low level of trust the general public and the media had for him.
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md) said he concurred with the Presidents decision to withhold what he dubbed mere paper proofs. The Presidents word is all that anyone needs in this or any other matter. What does it say about our country if we distrust our leader and demand he cater to doubters? Didnt we already go through that circus with the birth certificate? I think its time the American people unite behind a great decision by a great man.
Of course, not everyone agrees that the Seals got the right guy. Progressive Radio talk show host Mike Malloy thinks former President Bush wouldve been a more appropriate target. By my count, Bush was responsible for more innocent victims than bin Laden was, if bin Laden was the one who authored the 9-11 attacks, Malloy argued. Why didnt the Seals take him out?
Just like no proof of him being born.
You got me again, John.
I'm speechless. We demand it because Obama is a professional liar and can't be trusted. But then he brings up the possibility that documents can be falsfied - hmmm? Was that a freudian slip?
That . . . was satire. :-)
Next: Did you know that Osama bin Ladin was really born at Kapiolani General Hospital in Oahu?
His COLB has been posted at the White House web site.
well I fell for it. :-)
Translation... Osama is not dead, the raid was fake.
Proof or it didn’t happen.
“Demise Not Needed Says Prez”
Then why did the prez risk the lives of americans when he could have sent in an unmanned drone and laid waste to the compound.
If proof of death was required for BHO why not share that proof?
Oh, you mean OSama...Sorry, never mind.
After eight years of "chimpie," it seems fair, somehow. Besides, "The Original Gorilla" was used on Lincoln, and I doubt many people would make the connection.
Just axe any liar if he's lying!

RACIST! Against his black half.
