U.S. to Apologize for Sea Burial of Osama bin Laden
IsraPundit ^ | 5/10/11 | Bill Levinson

BREAKING: United States will apologize for burying Osama bin Laden at sea

A U.S. delegation consisting of President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, and Admiral Gary Roughead will make an emergency visit to Cape Sounion in Greece to apologize for burying Osama bin Laden's body at sea.

It was revealed that the State Department received a very strongly worded complaint along with thinly veiled threats of retaliation against the United States Navy. Although it is generally not the policy of the United States to respond to any threat, the Administration felt it prudent to resolve this dispute amicably.

The crisis began when Poseidon rose from the Potomac River to menace the Secretary of State. "I remind you," the angry sea god had thundered at Ms. Clinton, "that your Navy relies on MY goodwill to remain afloat. I am furthermore the Earthshaker, and I doubt I need to remind you what a dozen earthquakes of 10 on the Richter scale and the associated tsunamis could do to your entire Navy."

"We can explain, Sir," Hillary stammered. ...

OK, I am sick of apologizing for everything we do. Get some guts people. The lunitic killed thousands of people - he is lucky I didn’t have the decision on what to do with the body. Tell the girley president that we have now, the muslim extremists will always hate us - ALWAYS.

I thought it was part of the Muslim tradition per the Obama White House? Oh and now they are saying it’s not.... They cannot ever get this story straight. LOL!

This thing STINKS ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP.

What is amazing is how fast they rid the body.

““SATIRE ALERT!””

That should have been clear from the last paragraph. :-)

Wasn’t the line about Poseidon rising from the Potomac River a sufficient clue?

Satire, but the way things are with obozo and his buttboys, nothing would surprise me.

MANY of us just scan the titles for stories of interest. In todays bizarro world, truth is, more often than not, stranger than fiction...or satirical lampooning.

If we aren’t in the mood for satire, it would be nice to be informed of that in the Title.

A separate humor area wuld be even better.

I’m familiar with the Onion and Scrappleface. This is a new one.

And I assume it is satire. ;)

Nah. It takes the fun out of these threads. I got nailed by one of these a few years ago and learned to read articles before I respond to them, if not just for self preservation. :)

It was for me. I had lunch with “Mr P” (don’t ask me why, but that’s what he likes to be called) and he said he was not near the place that day.

If King Neptune has been hanging out in the Potomac, he has a lot more to be irritated about than just 0sama’s foul corpse.

“Nah. It takes the fun out of these threads.”

I don’t consider it fun to be tricked into wasting my time on fiction, when I’m trying to stay caught up on the news.

When I have time for humor, I’d prefer that it be clearly labeled as such.

Given all that has happened with OBL and BO’s 72 versions, this satire was in very poor taste. I agree with other posters. All satires should be identified as such in the title.

Are you kidding me?! If any of you whankers had read even the excerpt you would understand it was a joke/satire.

Wow. Too busy to read even past the title? hehehehe

For further reading, I'd suggest "Thor promises to hammer SEAL team 6 for their lack of asking for permission" on Examiner, or other supermarket titles. Sheesh people.

No offense, seriously, but it doesn’t take that long to figure it out. And what I like about it is that it forces me to really READ an article before I post on it. You may find, after you’ve been tricked, that it is more difficult to trick you in the future. That’s what happened to me.

I never assumed it was satire. Libs have been praying to such oddball gods recently it is not surprising a few would be offended. I knew this religious tolerance thing would not end well.

Satire..
But they should apologize to the families of 9/11 victims and all Americans for not sticking a pork sausage up his rear and hanging him from the nearest light post.

If I knew how to make a video I would do just that. Maybe sticking a pork sausage up his rear and show him being launched off the deck of the Vinson with some sailors on the bow using shotguns to see if they can wing him while he flies into the ocean. Then switch to a big sign on the stern reading Shark Bait as the props on the Vinson chop him up into bite size pieces.
