Posted on 05/06/2011 6:42:47 AM PDT by Hojczyk
Is Bin Laden dead? Yes. Everything else about the White House version of the Bin Laden raid in Pakistan is in flux.
How did the Special Operations Command that launched Sea Team Six, know for certain that Bin Laden was at home that night?
The White House says they were mostly certain. A fresh explanation, with confirmation, is that the US had visual confirmation of Bin Laden in and out of the house for several months. What happened to the more than a dozen people captured in the compound including Bin Laden's wounded wife?
The White House doesn't have a clear explanation. A fresh explanation, with confirmation, is that they were turned over to the ISI for safe-keeping but not interrogation. What happened to Bin Laden's body?
The White House explanation is that Bin Laden was buried at sea.
A fresh explanation from two sources, neither with confirmation, is that there is a version that says Bin Laden was jettisoned over the Hindu Kush Mountains.
The Roaming Gnome got him, yeah! That’s the ticket!
The mountains makes more sense................I had been wondering how they got from Pakistan to the North Sea so fast..........however, if he is dropped over the mountains, he’ll be found.
We will NEVER know the truth. The Usurper in the Whithouse controls “truth”.
The administration was preparing for just this by releasing the birth certificate earlier.
John Bachelor has never been right about anything to my knowledge, and coming up with an outrageous claim from an anonymous source is right up his alley.
Move along folks, nothing, repeat, NOTHING to see here...
Is this version 31.0 or 32.0 of the story? I've lost count.
“I had been wondering how they got from Pakistan to the North Sea so fast.”
North Sea? I don’t think there’s any chance they ditched him there.
Oh boy, John Batchelor. The guy who’s head spins around and spits green vomit when the name Glenn Beck comes up. You know, I followed John Batchelor on and off for the last 10 years and I finally realized that while I enjoy Socrates and Plato, I can’t make head nor tail of that man’s writing. I used to think he was SOOO intellectual that it was way above anything I could understand. Then I realized he’s just speaking a secret language to his pseudo-intellectual followers, and...he’s a very petty, eccentric man, with a serious sounding voice that gets him on the airwaves. Nothing more to see here, move along. That’s my studied response to hearing the name John Batchelor, without the green vomit.
That’s what they said, North Sea.
Who really cares. He’s gone. Whether he was washed in urine, thrown out of the helicopter to save fuel going back to the ship, or wrapped in swadling clothes and dumped over the side, the end result is still the same. It is only the military’s job to arrange the meeting...the 72 virginians will take care of the rest.
I only hope they can get years of information and strategy plans from the intel harvesting.
Just imagine now if OBL was posting in disguise on the web in Islamic chatrooms? From what we know he avoided the internet totally, but what if he was now a Judas goat?
I can easily imagine many sting operations where Jihadists fall for traps dreamed up by a captive OBL. Or somebody with his style of rhetoric.
Ok, looked it up.
North Arabian Sea.
The 24-hour rule has not always been applied in the past. For example, there was controversy when the bodies of Uday and Qusay Hussein - sons of the Iraqi dictator Saddam - were embalmed and held for 11 days after they were killed by US forces. Their bodies were later shown to media.
Why not treat Osama similarly?
Frankly, I am sick of Bin Laden.
It is over.
Time to start pressing Obama on all the other things that are happening because of Obama, but get no attention because of the nauseating coverage of Bin Laden.
Because the 1/2 white house probably didn't know about the operation until it was over or at best until it was too late to chicken out and call it off. IMHO Panetta did this one pretty much on his own or maybe with Hillary in consultation.
You know, I think you are right. I am trying to think of anything he has been right on and I cannot.
Bachelor’s new best friend Avlon of Daily Beast propaganda machine will surely find some way to blame the republicans for all the misinformation leaking out of the ‘situation’ room.
Bachelor is a joke and the Doug person who follows is so in love with his guy Obama that ABC is unlistenable after 3pm.
Lou Dobbs on WOR radio and then Steve Malzberg has the best few hours on the radio.
Now that al qaeda website declares OBL dead I am so reassured.
The wife says he never left the house the past five years, now someone says he was in and out of the house. That means someone is fibbing.
I understand your sentiments exactly....and to an extent I share them.
But another part of me argues on behalf of accurate history.
Historians have the reputation of being dull, academic wonks and nerds, overly-striving for accuracy, detail, even minutia in their search for truth to pass down to posterity.
But, thank God for these "nerds" and their efforts throughout the centuries to bring us detailed and accurate accounts of what happened in their day.
Even today, readers appreciate and study the smallest details about the lives, careers and deaths of historical figures such as the Borgias and Napoleon, for example.
Therefore, all data about the death of the mass murderer, OBL, should be accurately reported and recorded despite the offhand, understandable "who cares" attitude of many of us.
An attitude of not pressing for accurate details is exactly what the D.C. thugocracy surrounding Obama wants.
The Obama administration wants today's history, including the unvarnished facts of OBL's death, to be distorted, obliterated, revised.....and above all to be entirely about the daring feats of Obama, not the Truth.
He was met by 72 Sturgeons.
I heard this morning that bin Laden had never been spotted going in or out of the house and that they were not 100% sure of him being there?
You are “right-on” again, my friend!
Oh, so you believe everything Obama & HIS new media tell you? Well, I don't!
