Rosie ODonnell: We didnt give Bin Laden due process

whats the biggest news from this clip? That Rosie, like many delicate European flowers of discerning temperaments, thinks Osama deserved better than he got? Or that Rosie now apparently accepts the official narrative of 9/11? Why, it seems like just yesterday that she was musing on national television that I do believe that its the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7building 7, which collapsed in on itselfit is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7. World Trade [Center] 1 and 2 got hit by planes7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible. Maybe shes compromised since then and concluded that Bin Laden was an accomplice to the real masterminds.
Eighty percent of Americans say it was right to kill him instead of capture him versus 11 percent who think it was wrong. The crosstabs for that question will be out tonight, but I wonder how many in the majority approve of the killing because (1) Bin Laden deserved to die, (2) Bin Laden posed a physical threat to the SEALs and therefore had to be taken down, or (3) Bin Ladens capture and trial would have been an endless legal and media clusterfark, with no standard of due process and imprisonment sufficiently high for the self-styled intelligentsia whom Brendan ONeill tore apart here. Like Jeff Greenfield, I assume it was that third consideration that weighed most heavily on Obama. He knew that most of his base would either happily or unhappily tolerate Bin Laden being shot in the face ever since he banned enhanced interrogation, theyve given him carte blanche to go the full Bush on counterterrorism but that 11 percent would have been a headache for the rest of his presidency. Bin Laden emphatically had it coming, and the SEALs understandably feared that either he or the compound was wired with explosives, and they had already recovered scores of hard drives and thumb drives for intelligence purposes, so they shot him on sight. Problem solved, zero American casualties. Everyones happy almost.
After you listen to the clip, enjoy Hitchens laying into Noam Chomsky for his own quasi-Truther lament over the weekend about Bin Ladens killing. Apparently, despite endless evidence of Al Qaedas responsibility for the attacks (Hitchens cites just a few key pieces), the great dissident remains agnostic about whodunnit. Anyone think a trial and conviction, whether here or in the Hague, would have convinced him? Me neither.
Rosie didn’t give her scale due process.
Stupid is as stupid says.
Rosie O’Donuts and Michael “I want “Moore would make such a great couple. Maybe they could play together on her next Cruise to Nowhere.
Thanks doug from upland.
Ask Rosie what the occupants of the Twin Towers got?
Imagine how indignant she’d be if President Bush was still in office.
Tell the fat, lesbian bitch to take her dumb-as-f**k comments, shove them into an eclair, eat the damn thing, and then SHUT THE F**K UP!
Sorry...this just made me a little bit mad...)(
More gas from the human pez dispenser!
Lol....don’t hold back!
Rosie, you fat waste of skin....Bin Laden cannot be afforded due process unless he is on American soil. Read the friggin' Constitution you cow.
Due process in a war, Rosie, is a double tap.
Really? Did she really say that?! OMG!
What is it with obese, ugly, obnoxious, left-wing, useless pieces of crap like Rosie O’Donnell & Michael Moore? They should have their own talk show. The network can call it “the Obese, Ugly, Obnoxious, Left-Wing Pieces of Crap” Hour!
Trump v. Rosie
Wow, what a tirade! You even dissipated MY anger!!
“Due Process”. Ya mean we did not put Osama bin Laden in a Mulch Pit, and PROCESS him in DUE course for a commercial flower garden?
Yep. On the View in 2007! How could someone so brilliant not have a job with the Obama administration?
But, even if Bin Laden were on American soil, he’s not an American citizen, but an enemy combatant, or whatever the politically correct term for someone we are at war with.
Of course the liberals oppose military tribunals. They insist that terrorists get civilian trials, even though not American citizens, and even though they have declared war on America.
I’m sure glad Rosie “weighed in” on this issue. It was nice to see Michael Moore “weigh in” too.
Do Rosie and Michael ever talk to another good liberal named Michelle Obama? They could talk to her about how to fight obesity.
The people in the Twin Towers, in the Pentagon and on Flight 93, didn’t get due process either.
I think Osama should have been processed with some pork parts before being dumped in the ocean.
I hear that Rosie is supposed to get her own talk show on the Oprah Winfrey Network on cable TV. That should be a great show to watch. (sarcasm)
I think it’s crazy that, we went to the trouble to handle the body with care under Islamic law.
Muslims have been telling us that Bin Laden was not a good Muslim, does not represent Islam, etc. etc.
So, if Bin Laden is not a good Muslim, why did we go to the trouble of an Islamic burial service? Why would it allegedly incite violence if an evil apostate Muslim such as Bin Laden was not accorded Islamic burial?????
If you think Rosie is as stupid as democrats can get, check out congressman Hank Johnson on youtube:
Stupid doesn’t get any stupider.
But ... back to the article.
FTA: Eighty percent of Americans say it was right to kill him instead of capture him versus 11 percent who think it was wrong.
Of course nobody thinks it was "wrong" to kill Osama (except for Rosie O'Donnell). Of course we had a moral right to wipe the evil scum off the face of the earth.
But wasn't it "wrong" from an intelligence point of view?
I would never second-guess the SEALs -- if they believed it was necessary to kill bin Laden, then so be it.
But commentators who know about these kind of operations say it had all the hallmarks of a pre-determined "kill operation." Pre-determined ... by whom? By Obama, who didn't want our CIA to be able to interrogate bin Laden?
Don’t fret Rosie. Osama has been duly processed in a freezer for the past 9 years. They thawed him out in accordance with Islamic practice and dumped him off the poop deck in fine style. Not to worry.
BIN LADEN EYE PATCH ON EBAY =
He was long overdue to be processed and he got processed by the best the US could send.
Where’d you get your law degree Rosie
What about thousands of people who were killed on orders from Osama. They weren’t given due process when the planes went into the WTC !
I remember the movie Cobra when Sly kills the gunman and the reporter gets in his face about his due process rights and Sly responded concerning the innocent didn’t have their rights respected either.
The hell with Rosie, lickity split !
And Oprah just gave her a show on OWN...love it...lunatics in power and control of the microphone.
Well, it was tough rounding up a jury of his peers, because they were already dead.

There are better and brighter people than myself in charge of these things.

That is funny.
I regret UBL was not brought to trial in Gitmo, but not because he deserved due process.
Hey Rosie, did you and your pals give the 5000 more little American boys and girls who were butchered TODAY in the abortuaries due process?
Tell that to the victim of 911 families.
