The Obama Administrationís cloud of confusion explained *UPDATED* (great stuff)
http://www.bookwormroom.com/ ^

Posted on 05/04/2011 6:23:13 PM PDT by macquire

Usually when governments use misinformation, they use it to make themselves look good. The Obama Administration gets points for originality, insofar as it’s been using disinformation and misinformation to make itself look arbitrary, unlawful, helpless and stupid. Here’s jj’s great summary: (see FR Body of Comment area)

Okay, what do we have here:

1) There was a firefight.

2) There was no firefight.

3) Bin Laden was “resisting.”

4) Bin Laden wasn’t armed. (Makes the concept of “resisting” interesting.)

5) He used his wife as a shield.

6) His wife was killed too.

7) He didn’t use his wife as a shield. She ran at a SEAL who shot her in the leg, but she’s fine.

8 ) Some other woman — the maid? — was used as a shield. By somebody. Downstairs.

9) That other woman — downstairs — was killed.

10) Maybe not. She was killed unless she wasn’t — and who was she, anyway?

11) Bin Laden’s son was killed.

12) Unless it was some other guy.

13) Bin Laden’s daughter saw him get killed. She’s undoubtedly traumatized, poor dear.

14) They were going to capture Bin Laden until the problem with the helicopter, which was:

A) It had mechanical trouble

B) It did a hard landing

C) It crashed

D) It clipped a wall with a tail rotor, effectively a crash

15.) They were never going to try to capture him; it was always a kill mission.

16.) No, it wasn’t.

17) The chopper blew up.

18) The SEALs blew it up.

19.) Panetta said yesterday the world needed proof and the photo would be released.

20.) Obama said today in an interview he taped with Steve Kroft for “60 Minutes” to be broadcast Sunday that it won’t be released. It’s too gruesome, would offend Muslim sensibilities (something he worries about a lot — I personally do not give a warm fart on a wet Wednesday about Muslim sensibilities), and how would Americans feel if Muslims released pictures of dead Americans?

21.) Kroft — who’s not a total idiot — pointed out that ever since “Black Hawk Down” days, Muslims have been doing precisely that, filming American bodies being dragged through the streets, filming Daniel Pearl’s head being cut off, filming any and everything.

22) Obama gets pissed at CBS, the tape gets cleaned up, that question disappears. (Inside info.)

23.) We got a “treasure trove” of stuff from hard drives, etc.

24.) There were no phone lines, and no internet access at the “mansion,” they didn’t even have TV — what “treasure trove?”

25.) There is obviously in the pictures of the place a large satellite dish. I guess they used it for making salads.

26.) And now, just today: apparently the idea was to capture him, but only if he was naked. There was a suspicion he might be wearing a suicide bomber type explosive vest, or belt. So if he’s not naked and you can’t see if he has a vest on or not – shoot him.

The idiot Carney — they actually managed to find someone who makes Gibbs look good — is currently twisting himself into knots trying to explain why the photograph that the whole world was expecting isn’t going to be released. (Obviously the thing to do is get Trump on the case, he’ll force Obama to release it.)

The military did great, the administration — or whatever that bunch is, kind of like “The Little Rascals” — have managed to turn it into spaghetti. The story has changed so many times in the course of a mere three days it’s a joke — the world would be better off if Panetta had left the little shitwit on the golf course.

I am just watching this hilarious liberal 180 on what is justified and ok in war. It is terrible to torture to gain information to prevent future attacks, but it is ok to blow an unarmed guy’s head off though. Yeah, real consistent there.

Ha ha-—just watched splitzer on CNN- he confirmed it took 20 minutes for seal team to get to 3rd floor were osama was - OK- this is how it goes from info gathered-— seal team blows gate with (explosives)to get in compound, gets into intense gun fight for 20 min to get to 3rd floor, the helo crashes with explosion and fire, when the seal team gets to osama, he jumps out of bed and tries to grab a gun and seal guys shoot him— osama must have been deaf, cause he didnt hear all that sh-t goin on earlier to grab his gun

How exactly do you mess up the finding of Osama bin Laden? Really that’s like doing a perfect gymnastics routine and falling on your face during the landing.

That about sums it up - This pathetic handling of this situation post-raid is because this Administration has not allowed the Pentagon to provide the facts.

These people are in constant need of attention and credit (much not deserved). Therefore they have given 30 different quasi-AAR....with most of them full of half-truths and/or full BS on given specifics.

Miss the days of adult leadership out of our CinC in GWB. Where such information went directly through / from the military to the public.

How exactly do you mess up the finding of Osama bin Laden? Really that’s like doing a perfect gymnastics routine, and falling on your face doing an arm wave after the national anthem.

If water boarding is torture and torture never produces reliable information then how does one explain the name of the courier which started the yellow brick road to Bin Laden?

If Bin Laden isn’t a good Muslim, but a thug and a murderer of many more Muslims than anyone else, why the pretence of the Islamic funeral. He could have been buried at Gitmo and we wouldn’t have to worry about his followers coming to worship his grave. If they do rooms could be provided.

Everything is just way too consistent to not be authentic. /s

I'm not sure if you noticed.
But these pictures seem to show different hats on everyone's heads.
What does it mean?

That all makes perfect sense.

If you’re psychotic.

And he’s shot in the face, not the torso, shoulder, leg—making photo-ID less convincing.
